Why you should love your photographer...

On your wedding day you will be spending about 85-90% of your entire day with your photographer by your side. They will be guiding you through every step of the day! You want someone there you trust, who is organized, and who you can have fun with!

When you love your photographer and get along with them really well you can let your guard down around them. You can crack silly jokes and laugh and have fun! In doing so, you end up with not only amazing and genuine photos, but you'll have an even better experience!

When you've taken the time to get to know the person photographing you, they will know and understand your specific needs and wants. They will know the best way to capture you and bring out your best smiles, laughs, and natural emotions. Plus who doesn't love making new friends?!

The Baldwin Family: A Spring Family Session at Bush Park

August 2, 2022

This flower filled family session at Bush Park gave me so much LIFE! It started out looking like a stormy day and it even drizzled just a tiny bit. As moody and dark as the rolling clouds were, we had some of the BEST colors and blooms Bush Park could offer!

This sweet family was being featured as the cover and main story in the lastest issue of MOM magazine, a local magazine I often shoot for. Their kiddos were so much, energetic, and full of life. This gorgeous and accomplished momma, Megan, and I hit it off immediately. I was so drawn to her positivity and infectious joy. I instantly had a feeling that a new and beautiful friendship had just blossomed.

Speaking of blossoms, I could NOT get over these stunningly gorgeous blooms in the trees at Bush Park. The colors were unreal! I drove right by them on the way to the parking lot. I instantly knew I wanted to shoot there. We started out on the other side of the park. Then made our way to the fantastical and magical flower filled trees. We had SO much fun and of course had to play in all the flower petals! One of my absolute favorite parts were these sweet kiddos listening to my instructions as we went along, calling me “Miss Joni.” The huge hugs I got from them afterwards and the heart melting little song that one of them sang and danced out just for me before hopping into the car to leave. This family is sure something special and I was so blessed to meet them and capture these precious moments!
