It’s rather good to have an idea/inspiration/vague plan when we shoot. However, it’s more fun and rewarding when you take that idea and spin it on it’s head. Thankful to have a model who was up for creating, and it’s always a good time when Chelsea is in the studio with us. Photographed in our studio last year and heavily inspired by Art Streiber and Lady Gaga from Variety Magazine๐Ÿ™‚

Huge sunflower fields for days. Huge apple orchard fields for days. Red hair, a simple dress and a pair of rain boots. Blue skies.

All of these things I can really get into.

I (lauren) spent the afternoon with Nicki making some pretty special portraits and these are a few of the resulting images.




You’ll know this family if you’ve been with us for a while. We’ve been lucky enough to document the big moments in their lives and adding baby #2 is DEFINITELY one of those moments!

Full disclosure, these were photographed last fall and since baby Logan has made his way into the world and is just about one of the happiest babies on the planet! We in fact just photographed his 6 month session (more on that session soon!)

2020 has been a real doozy of a year, hasn’t it?

We’ve got a lot of sessions to post from the end of 2019 and the beginning of this year along with some socially distanced sessions that we’re really getting the hang of.

Starting off THIS party with this party of three, soon to be four.

howdy you guys. ๐Ÿ™‚

we’re a tad bit behind on blogging and such, COVID-19 is (as i’m sure it is with many of you, really messing with time…how it is even SEPTEMBER already?!) anyways, the show must go on. we met up with this lovely lady last summer. i’ve shared a few images of kaitlin already over on the openField photography. instagram page, which, while i’m thinking about it, you guys REALLY SHOULD GIVE US A FOLLOW over there! we post regularly and there’s lots of fun images, insta stories, updates and such, so we’d LOVE it if you all followed along!

we met kaitlin and on a sunny and warm day and were instantly smitten with her personality and had a loveliest time capturing it. and yes, her eyes are really that blue.
