Here’s how it will work. Use the handy Paypal link below, to fill in the amount you want to pay. Let’s say you input $1000. We will look at the time you sent it, and then add on 10, 25 or 50% to your certificate. So, if your transaction clears by 11:59 am central time then we will add 25% to the amount paid.

One for you, one for a loved one, maybe…  (if you are purchasing more than one, please do separate transactions so that I can issue certificates for each recipient.)  I will enter the recipient’s name on the certificate & include gift packaging if this is for someone else, I will just credit your account if this is for you.

This sweetie pie came into the studio a few days ago for her first photo shoot and she did a wonderful job.  These are just a few of my favorites...

Baker Family

What a wonderful surprise for a 70 year old....a family portrait including her children, their spouses and her grandchildren. We met at the Embassy Suites in downtown Lincoln earlier this week for a photoshoot. Unfortunatley the weather kept us inside...but everyone was a great sport and even a little silly!

Jack {newborn}

What a handsome little man.  I had the pleasure of photographing mommy and daddy's wedding back in 2008 and it was so fun reconnecting with them and getting to spend some quality time with their adorable family and it's newest member Jack.  He was a stud during his session!  Big sister Adelyn did wonderful too and decided that my name was Halloween. ;)

Aww, little Graham.  Such a sweet family, Graham came into the studio at just 13 days old and he did wonderful.  He slept through big sister Stella and her business.  He has the BEST hair too...loved it!

 Look at this great hair!

(I was really loving this antique edit on his images...)

Chloe's One!

Yay, Miss Cloe is one and we met in downtown Elkhorn for her one-year photo shoot.  She did a great job smiling and posing for the camera.  We got mom and dad in a few too.  Chloe is another one of my Sweetness Members..

Good Bye Nebraska...

This adorable family is heading out to the west coast, a job moves them out of the midwest, and I was so thankful to have the opportunity to photograph them before they left.  It was a perfect night, light and temperature-wise (let's not talk about the fact that my purse was stolen in the parking lot)  I am in love with these images and am thinking of creating a canvas cluster for my studio....

Addie {newborn}

Meet sweet Addie-  She was just a few days old and slept like a good little girl.  I love that mom brought the quilt she is laying on in the first was one her grandma made before she was born.  So sweet....

Lindsey & Matt - hitched!

What fun I had with these two in Chicago!  Yep that's right, I got to head to Chicago to document this couple "in love"  This is their home but they are getting married in Omaha so we wanted to incorporate their new home in their engagement shoot.  I LOVED it!


Mr Barrett turned one earlier this year and I got to meet him and his mommy and daddy (a previous wedding couple) out at the park for a fun springtime shoot!
