Crete, Ephesus & Kusadasi

Our next stop on our European trip was to Crete, Greece. It was a smaller town but equally as beautiful as the others. The water here was unlike anything I had ever seen before! We ate at a little cafe right on the water and swam in the salty ocean. It was beautiful. Next we stopped in Ephesus,

Arianne & Scott Bridal Session

I get asked a lot of times what a “bridal session” is. Bridal sessions are perfect for the bride and groom who would like to have a lot of portraits taken of them in their formal attire outside of the wedding day. This provides a wonderful opportunity for them to get both formal and

The Amalfi Coast

This was inevitably one of my favorite stops of our trip to Europe. I only wished we would have had more time to really explore on our own and get deep into the culture of all the beautiful towns. We made stops in Sorrento, Amalfi, Positano and Ravello and the urge to go back is only intensifying

Aren’t moms just the best?? I think so. I loved that Brooke (Brooke Bakken Photography) did a session with she and her kids with their grandma. There’s no one who loves us better or knows us more than our mama’s, am I right? These two had me cracking up the whole time. I adore
