Class of 2014 Preview // Northwest Iowa Senior Photography

A full post is due to hit the blog later this week, but I know quite of a few people have been itching to see what I was up to last Saturday. To kick-off the senior photography season here in Northwest Iowa, I gathered four senior models from area schools for a fun styled shoot….

The Heart of a Lion // Beautiful People 2013

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern.

    My heart is so full, Courtney. Your sweet pictures with Makensie’s words overwhelm me.

    I don’t think anyone else could have taken pictures of our girl than you. Your love for her shows in every photograph.

    Of course Kensie has blessed my life, just because she is my granddaughter. But I have to let you know that you have blessed my life also, first through your precious girls and the joy you all have brought into our lives, but also through your wonderful talent and the love you show through that talent. Thank you Courtney, you will always have a place in my heart.ReplyCancel

    I know that being connected with your family was no coincidence.

Birthday parties are a bit new for us as we’ve never really lived around our family to be able to have one for the girls. All Miss Colleen wanted was a…

If there ever comes a day … // Iowa Lifestyle Photographer

Yesterday was my best friend Bree’s 30th birthday … which got me thinking … Of course it was a gentle reminder that I would be turning 30 myself in a mere 3 1/2 months, but more importantly, I thought of our friendship.  We actually met way back in 1986 … just three years old and…
