Shane and Diana are Having a Baby!


So excited that Shane and Diana are expecting a little girl.

I had the honor of photographing their wedding a couple of summers ago and I just adore them; they are such a sweet couple.

This shot was a remake from their wedding day; just for fun 🙂





and I just LOVE the name!




definitely one of my favorites:




and I so need a pare of these in my size:



This shot came from us being a little silly; ended up being one of my favorites. Since Shane is the drummer for Spostah I thought a little bit of a rocker look was a appropriate…lol.


 Shane and Diana, thank you…. It was such a blessing to see you both and share in this special time in your lives.

I can’t wait to meet Cordelle; maybe a trip to Seattle will be in the Benson Family future!

sarah - Love you Diana! You look beautiful!!


Had a great time taking senior photos with Colter this fall.

I love coming up with ideas for sporty shots and he really exemplifies an athlete so we had a great time.

He is very fun to be around, easy going, and has an amazing drive for life.

I am excited to see all the wonderful things he will accomplish in years to come. Congratulations Colter!



Shooting this time of year is so great; I am just so excited to see the sunshine.

Perfect for a second session with David. He is such a hard working, kind, young man; such a pleasure to hang out with. Love that he sported the Drive One 4 UR School T…really great color and it looks great in the photos. David has pretty cool style and it really shows. He knows I like accessories and he never lets me down with belts, shoes, hats, ext…; love it.

I am excited to see what the future has in store for him, no doubt he will accomplish great things.

Thanks David for a great photo shoot and I wish you the very best; congratulations!
