Taking ordinary women
& capturing
their extraordinary beauty

Gorgeous!

I'm Abby, and I'm a girl boss from the Midwest! I'm a photographer and have proudly been one for 10 years, specializing in natural light & authentic smiles. I'm a wedding photographer turned female portrait photographer &  passionate about making women of all shapes, sizes, color and age feel beautiful & confident (inside & out). I know what beauty looks like and how to capture it and I want to show you how beautiful you are by creating the most beautiful portraits that you've ever seen of yourself. I pride myself on keeping my work classy and timeless, and consider my photographs heirlooms that you can feel proud of passing along to loved ones for generations to come. I crave to create with my hands and from my heart and make each portrait session unique and special. Let's make some magic together!

MY HUSBAND! If there was ever a man to make a girl weak at the knees, it's him. I was starstruck by Brad in highschool and only fall harder for him everyday. He is my best friend, and we are unapologetically  inseparable. We enjoy working on our home and playing with our 2 fur babies, Gus & Beau, who are the sweetest dogs ever. Entertaining family and friends is a favorite, as well as serving at church & decompressing at the  lake, laying in hammocks at the park, picnicking, kayaking, camping, or Netflixing (give us a good Rom Com or action-packed movie and we're pretty happy campers).  Really, all you have to do is put us in the same room with each other and we're pretty happy. ;)

T R A V E L I N G. I am a homebody to the core, but funny enough, am always up for traveling somewhere and planning the next adventure. Growing up in a family of 8 we went on quite a few road trips, so the love of travel was instilled in me from a young age. I remember being 15 years old when I "upgraded" and got to fly in an airplane for the first time --- it was so exhilarating and I still love to fly. I jump at the chance to see mountains, the desert, or the ocean, and I hope to someday visit Italy, Greece, Morocco & Ireland. Or really anywhere. So invite me along to your adventures!!

I freaking love clothes shopping. I went through a small phase where I didn't because I didn't know how to dress my body --- but in time, I have learned what I love on myself and am not afraid of trying new things and wearing what makes me feel amazing. You'll likely find me clothes shopping at Target, Ross Dress, or funny enough, Amazon! They have some great finds (just have to look hard enough). As much as I love cute clothes, at home you'll find me sporting sweat pants, a bun, my robe and slippers. ;) Sometimes you'll see me sporting all of those things out and about (minus the robe). ;)

My fur babies. On the left is Gus and on the right is Beau. We adopted Gus in 2016, right after we purchased our first home! He is honestly THE perfect dog. I can't even begin to explain why and what makes him special. He is almost 4 years old! The little guy (Beau) we adopted right before Christmas in 2018. He is 8 weeks old in this picture. He is allll puppy, haha. But a sweet little dude and adores Gus (and vice versa). We love watching them bond and becoming best buddies!

My love for the Lord is no secret & He is the greatest and most important part of my life. I didn't always feel this way, though. I grew up in a happy, Christian home, but dealt with a lot of tough stuff, which sometimes almost resulted in self harm more than once. Thankfully, God intervened each time in some way. One night around 10 years ago He grabbed a hold of my heart and it's been His ever since. That's the short version of the story. :) I'm just a sinner saved by grace & love, doing my best to extend grace & love to others. I feel so humbled and grateful for what the Lord did on the cross for me, and I desire to live in light of that hope each and every day.
