Sometimes You Just Have To Dance

Most littles don't want to sit for a photo. This sweet little girl just wanted to dance, run, and play so we lived in the moment and captured the fun! Try not to over-plan your photos if you have little kids. The majority of the time, if you have too many expectations, you will be ...

Feminist Love

After this photoshoot, as I walked to my car, a woman stopped me and said: "You two just made my day and heart, seeing so much feminist love and support made me so happy." Isn't that awesome?! I had just met Laura with Laura Rae Photography that morning but we were having so much fun ...

Till Death We Do Art

"Till Death We Do Art" - Joe Craven This quote really hit me while they were honoring Jeff Austin at the Grand Targhee Bluegrass Festival. Jeff recently died unexpectedly and today on 9/11, I'm reminded of Joe Craven's words "Tell your story and make your art". Life is hard. Honestly, it's harder than I expected ...

As we turned off Highway 20 in West Yellowstone onto a dirt road and drove under the log archway for Bar N Ranch, we could see the canvas tents in the distance of this beautiful, secluded, wide-open space.

Please Believe It

You look in the mirror and see yourself, but really, it's not you at all. I mean, there's your eyes and your nose and your cute little smile, but that's to all there is to you. Because you're not seeing the amount of lives you've touched in your presence. You're not seeing all the people ...

Moonlight in Kanab, Utah

We danced too wild, and we sang too long, and we hugged too hard, and we kissed too sweet, and howled just as loud as we wanted to howl, because by now we were all old enough to know that what looks like crazy on an ordinary day looks a lot like love if you ...

NE Minneapolis Dog Parade – Minnesota

Her face says it all! The NE community always looks forward to the annual Northeast Minneapolis Dog Parade.  They gather at the Historic Main Street Park where there are dog treats, samples and activities. After about 30 minutes, they line up and walk the neighborhood. Below are a few photos that I captured for Steven Scott ...
