20 Things You May or May Not Know About Me

I thought I would let you get to know me a little. 

1. I love to run.
Crazy running events like Ragnar Relay Races. 
Next year I will be running my 10th Ragnar race.

The Meaning of My Business Name

When my Aunt Marion said to me a while ago, "I just figured out what BAK means." I thought I would share with you all the meaning of my business name. 

While a friend of mine was working in my classroom with me I started my business. 
I am a first grade teacher by day. :)
I love my firsties.  If you want to check out my other blog, here's the link:


A Chilly, Fall Morning

I have known this family for a while. 
They were one of my first kiddos to photograph when I first got started. 

We ventured out on the trail. It was chilly. One of the first snows had fallen. These boys were troopers. They continued to smile through every picture, even when someone was hit in the face with a snowball...on accident. :)

I just love this trail. It doesn't matter what season, there is beauty every time I walk it. 
And this family added even more beauty.


Not Photography Related...But Anyway...Marine Corps Marathon

Marine Corps Marathon

Let's go back to the beginning of the year in March when the lottery opened.
I put my name in. Why not? If I got in...I got in. If I didn't...I didn't.
Well, I didn't! I was relieved. Really. A marathon was not on my bucket list. I had surgery in 2010 on my back. Who does a marathon after back surgery?


THIS GIRL!!!

Beautiful August Wedding




What makes a true love story...
Love at first sight?
Overcoming obstacles?
Family support?
Fighting for what's real?
Making it work?
Making sacrifices?
All of the above.

When it comes to these two, you know that their love is the kind that was "meant to be". 
It's natural.
It's perfect.

Zoe Class of 2018

When you are asked to do your former first grader's photos...

It was the perfect time for light at Lorenzo. We set out to find some interesting spots.
There are so many at Lorenzo. It was easy to do.

Zoe, your future is going to be phenomenal. 

Emma ~ Senior Photos ~ Class of 2018

This was my first time shooting at Hamilton College. It was such a gorgeous setting. 

What I didn't know going into this was the poise and confidence of this young lady. 

The result of this photoshoot...STUNNING!!!

Emma, you will move mountains.
