Heather + Pete || Maternity

We had such a great evening capturing an exciting new adventure these two were preparing to take. They have now welcomed their sweet little girl (she’ll be featured in a soon-to-come blog post). I met these two briefly at church, but this was our first time together and it was such a special time. The love and friendship these two share is so special, and it made for an easy session. Heather is stunning, and Pete knew exactly how to squeeze in to get these lovey pictures.

2018 End-of-Year Highlights

 

This might be my favorite post of the year. Below you’ll see some of my favorite shots from all o f my sessions in 2018. This was a great second year for Tandem, and I’m so thrilled to have the clients and business that I do!

Are they not stunning? I got to meet Jenin + Matt this year, and in 2019, I get to capture their wedding day. They are such a wonderful, easy couple to work with!

This is one of my favorite dreamy shots of a dear friend Erin and her now husband Cody. This was a beautiful, spring session. It’s making me dream of warmer weather, vibrant colors and beautiful outdoor sessions!

Christi + John are return clients from many years ago. The last time I photographed their family, they’re kiddos were so little. Now they’re becoming young adults! It was so great to catch up, and see the kids.

Rachel + Jeff are practically models. This was a candid shot of the couple on their big day, and is one of my favorites to date!

What a beautiful answer to prayer this little boy is. Shannon + Tyler were able to celebrate new life in an amazing way, after losing their sweet baby Annabelle. We are so thankful for new life!

A special father daughter shot. I could just snuggle newborns all day. I had the pleasure of capturing Katrina + Markus’ baby announcement, maternity and newborn pictures. How sweet to watch these families grow!

Zack + Alli make a beautiful couple. It was a beautiful day celebrating the love they’ve shared since high school.

These two!

Although I get a little nervous before most sessions, you never know what meeting a new couple will be like! I’m so thankful for new friend, and adding these two to the list has been wonderful.

We hit it off and had a great hour together. Also, they’re the sweetest! Couples like this, and sessions like these, are the reason I started this business.

There was so much love between these two, and I’m so grateful that I’m the one who gets to capture their big wedding day!

Just soak up the love from these shots.

 
 
 

2017 End of Year Highlights

What a year it has been! Not only has this year been chaotic in my personal life, but it's been a whirlwind in my photography world! Since we are reaching the end of the year, and looking into 2018, I thought I could share some of my favorite pictures from the past year. This is a collection of images that have either a personal meaning to me, or are from a session that I absolutely loved. I wish I could include everyone, but that just isn't possible! So here are my highlights!

This is from a session with a sweet family that I used to work with. I love the special relationship and laughter these three share, and I'm so grateful I was able to capture it!

This is a headshot of a sweet friend and past co-worker, Allison. This is special to me because she is someone who has encouraged and inspired me professionally and spiritually.

Aren't these sisters precious? The older sister used to be in my small group, and she has such a fierce love for her little sister. Such a beautiful frienship they share.

Okay, this sweet friend here is Kaitie. Isn't she stunning? She is forever my go-to model when I need a bit of inspiration or have to try out something new.

Not only are these friends of mine so obviously in love, but that little stream of light flowing in just gets my heart all warm and fuzzy.

OH, baby announcements. I wish I could do these every.single.day. There is something so peaceful, exciting and unique about these sessions. I am grateful to be able to be part of these significant life moments!

I love this picture. There is something about it that gives me the feels. Not only is this a dear friend, but she has modeled for me for several years now. I love the pictures that may not be perfect, but they elicit a certain emotion. That's what this is for me.

One final friend. Tiffany has a such a sweet, gentle and genuine spirit. This picture so well captures her heart, which is pure gold.

Thanks to all of you who have been part of this year, both personally and professionally. I'm so excited for 2018 and all the sessions I'll be able to share with you! It's going to be a great year!

The beginning

If you're reading this, you are in on the ground floor of this business (or you have really dug through the archives). 

The name of this business, Tandem, means two things. On a professional level, it represents the two branches of this business working together. On a personal level, it represents me trying my best to live out Proverbs 31:10-31. 

I started this business for many reasons. First, I have wanted to get this going for many years, but I have been too afraid. With the encouragement and support of my sweet husband, I finally jumped in with both feet! Second, I want to have a way to work from home when children come along. Third, I want my work to complement our home and marriage. I don't want anything I do to take away from being a wife and homemaker a priority. 

So here is to the beginning! If you are reading this, know that I am thankful for you because it means you took the time to check in on what is happening here!
