Hearts at Home

Last weekend I had the privilege of attending the "Hearts at Home" conference in Illinois with an amazing group of girls. It was so refreshing to hear from other mom's that are going through the same stages of life that I am. I love photography but my first love is God and my second is my family. God gave me the passion for art (photography) and I thank Him for that all the time. It is in photographing families, babies, and nature that I am reminded of how precious and perfect life is. Thanks to all of you that have let me into your lives to capture your most precious moments. Thank you God for my own beautiful family. -Loree

Zen and Pester and their sweet owner =)

I had so much fun on my first "dog session". Susan called to ask me if I would do a session with her and her dogs. I found out quickly that dogs are a lot like kids (no offense). They are won over with treats and lots of encouragement. The dogs were a little shy at first but warmed up after some treats and play time. I had a great time getting to know Susan. She made me some hot tea (so sweet) and shared some of her life with me. She is a beautiful person inside and out. I hope you enjoy these precious pictures.

Ezra - Birthday photos

Ezra and my daughter (Hannah) have known each other since birth. In fact we have a picture of them in the isolette together at the hospital after Ezra was born. They are only one week apart. It has been fun to see them grow and change over the years. They used to fight over toys and squabble with each other and now they can't wait to see each other and play together. Tricia is one of my best friends. It was so much fun taking pictures for her. Here are a few of Ezra's six year pictures. Enjoy!!

Anna's First Birthday!!!

This is little miss Anna. She came in for her first birthday session (including a smash cake session). We had so much fun watching her smash into her first cake. She started with just a taste and then went full force (feet and all) into the cake. We had to put her in the kitchen sink after the session =) Anna is so sweet, full of personality, and cute as pie!! Enjoy her pictures.
