So since this is a new venture for me and some of you probably don't know me I thought I would show you a few things in this world that I love!

This first little guys is my nephew Parker!  He loves his Aunt Nikki SO much as you can see. I just had to get a photo of him wearing his cool outfit!

And this handsome guys is wearing the same outfit as his new best friend Parker but this is Elijah my best friends son!

I love my family to pieces and these are just a few. My sister Ashley(mother to baby Parker), Me and my cousins Kelly, Rose and Kate

Now here are some special people...My siblings and Grandparents at my brothers wedding.
Ashley, Me, Grandma, Reena, Shane, Grandpa, Austin, Colton
This little trouble maker is my best friend Rachels oldest son and my "nephew" Carter.
This is my best friend Rachel and I

Oh and this a photo of myself and Nolan. He  he is Rachels middle son and definately holds a special little place in my heart!


This little man was the perfect little guy this last time! In his last session he did not smile once no matter what mom, dad or I did. He showed me how much he has changed in the last 6 months though...he smiled almost the ENTIRE time! I was so excited to edit these photos. We took these at one of my absolute favorite locations and despite the weather that morning we had beautiful overcast skies during the shoot!


So this little guy and I have a very special relationship and that is that I just LOVE him to pieces. I mean who couldn't!? He is the son of a friend and coworker of mine and one of my favorite little people to photograph. These were done in downtown Rock Island. We loved the concept of photographing a toddler in an urban setting...putting a little bit of a twist on the typical childrens portrait. I hope you all enjoy these photos as much as his mother and I do!


People have asked me time and time again to do a blog of some sort so here I am. Please be patient with me for this is VERY new! I hope that everyone can help me in making this become a very success project. I will gladly accept any advice and tips that you the viewer will give!
