I cannot believe my little niece, Kaylee, is almost a year old already. It seems like it was not that long ago that she was just over visiting to get her newborn portraits done. She was the cutest little newborn and I remember thinking she couldn’t be any sweeter. But then I got to do […]

I couldn’t believe how beautiful of a day it was this past Sunday! It felt more like late September than early November. Of course, I was completely great with that.  Not only was the day stunning and perfect, but we just happened to have my sweet friend Jen’s family photos scheduled for that day! November […]

It’s really hard to explain just how much we love these two. They have every characteristic of the perfect Alisha Marie Couple and then some! They are relaxed, trusting, energetic, funny and very much in love! And that doesn’t even begin to describe Amanda and Chris! Humble, compassionate, loving…I seriously could just list adjectives that describe […]

Alexa and Josh drove to all the way  Eau Claire from Minnesota for their engagement session with me and I couldn’t be more thankful that they did so! They lived in Eau Claire for a year for work before moving back near the cities where they are both from. Prior to the session, the sun was […]

Where do I even start with Jeanna and Josh’s wedding?! EVERYthing was amazing! From the fact that the rain actually stayed away most of the day, to the stunning barn, to all the unique details of tree-themed wedding- the day was completely perfect for them! We started the day at Irvine Park where Jeanna and […]

We had a lazy Sunday at home today. I walked out back to find Tyler putting a tire swing on our tree for the boys! Landon was gone at a friend’s house (and when did he get big enough for that?!) so it was just four of us. The younger boys LOVED watching Dada hang […]

My boys are so lucky to have such a sweet, amazing extended family! One set of their great grandparents lives several hours away, but we try to make it there a few times a year with aunts, uncles and cousins. The boys love helping clean up apples that fell off the apple tree. And every […]

My adorable little trio came running in the house screaming for me the other day. This typically means one of two things: someone is hurt or someone has to pee. Shockingly, this time it was neither! They were so excited to show me something. If I’m being honest, I figured it was a mess they […]
