Why do I include engagement sessions as part of my wedding packages?  I could charge “extra” for them.  I could offer them separately.  But, this way, I’m almost guaranteed at least an hour to get to know my engaged couples.  We meet at a location of their choice, in Powell or the surrounding area, and […]

    Love Mal and Forrest pics❤️ReplyCancel

No matter how mundane our weeks seems, looking back at these images I realize it’s really not.  I get so caught up in the routine of things…out the door to work and school on time, school day is over and now it’s on to dinner, time to workout and then get the kids to bed. […]

I love that, even in our small hometown of Powell, every couple can make their wedding day as unique as they are.  Cooper and Courtnie chose to have a traditional wedding along the riverfront just outside of town.  The location is actually closed to weddings, but the owner is a close family friend who has spent […]

    Sue and I were so happy to have the Pools select you to capture the wedding of our children and you did not disappoint in any way! While the concept of me not having my camera in my hands for the wedding was extremely foreign and uncomfortable, my heart and mind were at peace with you in charge of the event with your camera!! Thanks for showing us these photos and look forward to seeing them all. Bless you my friend!!ReplyCancel

    Jill, Fabulous job. Beautiful and artistic pictures. Loved the sneak peek so glad we chose you to shoot this ultra important day. I felt so blessed by the Lord by the day from the weather and beauty to all of the friends and family that we love so dear. I believe it was everything these two could have dreamed of in a wedding. Can’t wait to see the rest of your pictures as the ones so far are incredible.ReplyCancel

When I got married, it was important to me that I not see my groom the day of the wedding.  I’m not really sure why I chose to do that.  We didn’t have the popular “First Look” session that so many couples are doing now.  Neither did Melissa and Geoff.  But, they did something just […]

March, oh March.  You were pretty great.  New bikes, and helmets, were bought.  And, they were used A LOT.  That red bike already looks a little small on you.  And that portrait of Connor?  I die.  He looks so much older than last year.  We took a trip to our favorite pizza place in Red […]

This month was such a mixed bag.  We had the 100th day of school.  Sean makes a good looking old man ;). He also had his first major crush.  A big enough crush that he asked her to be his Valentine.  There were a few gorgeous sunsets, cookies before dinner, and a stay in a […]
