Bob and Daniel Engagement in L.A. and Wedding in Omaha I met Bob about six years ago and we became fast friends.  When he met Daniel, I never saw him happier...and Bob, with his wonderfully large Italian personality, already was a positive and happy guy!  After meeting Daniel, I knew they were wonderful together. 

When Bob and Daniel first asked me how I felt about photographing their wedding, I was hesitant.  I loved them so much that I didn't think I'd be able to enjoy their day and help them celebrate, if I was concentrating on the job at hand.  But after trying to help them find a photographer, I realized that I really wanted it to be me.  I'm so glad that I had the chance to be with them for so much of their special day.  I will always treasure that time.  We had so much fun and I loved seeing how important the day was to them!

I could not have been happier to shoot this engagement session...unless, we could have had a little more time at the Getty Center in Los Angeles!  What a beautiful place!  We were surrounded by beauty, but losing light fast.  Following these beautiful engagement photo pictures are some that I "blogstomped" from the wedding!  

Happy anniversary Bob and Daniel!  Congratulations, again!

Steve + Will

I was honored when my good friend, Steve, asked me to photograph his wedding in D.C. last April.  I couldn't have had a better time! My friend, Alice, and I made the trip together.   It was my first time in D.C. and I absolutely loved it!  It's so exciting to work in a new city and even better to work with such lovely friends.  Alice and I had a great weekend exploring D.C. and making some beautiful images for our good friends Steve and Will!  Congratulations to you both!

PJ's Maternity Session 2.0 I've said it before and I'll say it again...I feel so fortunate to work with the same families over many years!  It's so fun to see how they change and grow.  We build such nice and close relationships, too.

A few years ago, when I was working with Kameron Bayne Images, I did a maternity session with a lovely couple, PJ and Jordan.  PJ has such an amazing sense of design and we had such a good time being creative together. (She has a great blog, too,  by the way. Check it out at

Check out a few of my favorites from the first maternity session that I did (with post production by Kameron Bayne) followed by a more intimate session at home with PJ for Baby #2!

And now for the new ones... and these include cute little Levi, the soon to be Big Brother!

Thanks, PJ.  You are absolutely beautiful!  We'll see you soon for the newborn session!

Blythe After snapping a couple of shots of Blythe at a parade in Gretna over the summer, I knew that I HAD to have a session with her!  I was so glad when her parents decided to schedule one this fall!  I love this age.  Sometimes I really get lucky with little ones like this who will look right into the camera with those hypnotic eyes. We did a lot of moving following this energetic girl around, but it didn't keep us from capturing these beautiful moments.  Thanks Sarah Ann and Johnny for sharing your beautiful daughter with me.  What a jem!

Emily: Graduating Senior of 2014 There are some young women that just make my job so easy!  Look at this model!  Emily is a beautiful senior graduating this year from Central High School.  I had the pleasure of photographing her, and both of her older sisters, for their senior pictures.  They are all gorgeous, but each unique.


Emily had a great attitude and let me drive her all over the Benson area of Omaha.  She was up for anything.  Oddly enough, some concerned citizen thought that I may be doing something wrong, because two nice police officers showed up at the car wash!  They said that someone had called about me "photographing minors!"  The police officers said that they figured it was nothing, and probably a "senior session" and kindly told us to enjoy our shoot.  It was a little nerve wracking at first, but at least it makes a great story!  Never a dull moment on a shoot with me!


Thanks, Emily!  I hope you love them!

Elisabeth + John It's not too often that I get a last minute call to photograph a wedding.  Frankly, it kind of freaks me out when I do!  I worry that if a couple waits until the last minute to hire a photographer, they might not value photography or they might make a hasty decision about hiring me even if I'm not a good fit.  Elisabeth called me just 2 weeks before her wedding day!  I am so glad I happened to be open!  This couple was so cute and so great to work with!  I also was lucky enough to hire a former photography student to be my second shooter.  What a relief that she was free, because she did an excellent job.  Sara Parks is someone to watch for!  Many of her images are included in this post!  Thanks, Sara!


This beautiful wedding took place at the Omaha Country Club.  It was the finale to a perfect September day.  The atmosphere had sort of a garden wedding feel with iced beverages served before the processional.  But, what happened afterward was what was new to me!  Elisabeth and John had a "Second Line," a tradition popular in New Orleans.  With a Mardi Gras brass band, the guests were paraded back to the club house.  It couldn't have been more fun!


So glad you found me Elisabeth and John!  I had a great time!

Malcom + Sara Jane It's my honor to post these photos from the wedding of some very dear friends, Malcom and Sara Jane!  What a lovely wedding!  And I am just so honored that they included me in their very special day.  They had a lovely wedding at the Spring Creek Prairie.  It was a beautiful location and despite some challenges with bright sunlight, I think the images turned out great.  


When I met Sara Jane, I knew she was a good match for Malcom.  They share a passion for art, travel and good books.  They are thoughtful, smart and genuine people who make a mark in this world.  They also make the greatest partnership I've ever seen.  I am so proud to call them my friends. 


I remember the day I met Malcom.  We were both in an Intro to Poetry class at The University of Nebraska--Lincoln, although this was no introduction to poetry for Malcom.  He often debated with the professor and helped lead thoughtful class discussions. Everyone around him was drawn to him.  I had just transferred to UNL from Northwest Missouri State for my second semester of my first year of college.  I was out of place, while everyone had already found theirs.  I knew no one in the class, but I, too, was drawn to Malcom and knew that I had to meet him.  It was in that class that I also met my good friend Carrie.  My world opened up to me that semester.  Malcom and Carrie introduced me to other friends like Mike, Tom, Steven, Suzie and Joy.  I was introduced to way more than poetry that semester.  These new friends opened me up to new music, bands, art, film and travel.  They lived life more fully than I had ever known.  They filled me up with long and late night discussions and were right there beside me as I developed into an artist, encouraging me every step of the way.  Malcom was even there to help me hang my first photography show.


Enjoy these images from Malcom and Sara Jane's wedding...but be sure to see some pictures from our past at the end of this post!





And then the reception came the next night....

The former roomies... Joy, Malcom and me!

Malcom is firing the shutter with a cable release.




Carrie when she shaved her head and Mike from a polaroid toy camera from the 90s.



A couple of different group gatherings in the 90's.  (Check out my hair!)  The first group shot was taken at the "Hostile House" that Joy and Malcom and I lived in.  Notice how I don't look quite comfortable...I was always running in the shot last second after setting my camera on self-timer!




One series of "Mouth Photos" that Carrie modeled for.  This one with Polaroids from my SX-70.  

"Honey, Sugar, Cupcake, Sweetheart"  A comment on "endearing terms" for women.



Malcom when he shaved his head.  I documented the whole thing and printed out a series of small photos like this in the style of trading cards.




My first attempt at portraits with a 4 x 5 camera I took at a party at the "Hostile House."  Mike, Steven, Carrie and Malcom.  (Please excuse the quality...This is a scan of the negatives in the plastic sleeve...lots of dust! It's funny.  At the time I made these, there wasn't even an option to scan the negatives!  They are kind of flat and gray, but they are fun to see!  


And that concludes my nostalgic trip down memory lane for today.  I hope my friends will all forgive me for this post.  It's been a lot of fun going through old photos and remembering where I started.  


I wish the best for you, my dear friends Malcom and Sara Jane!  May you live many long and adventurous days together!  Hopefully, these images will remind you of your beautiful wedding day for many years to come.  Love you!

Fruitful Design Light sabers, Legos, and Logos, OH MY!  The talented designer, Ben Lueders of Fruitful Design was sure fun to photograph!

I am so excited about this session!  I had the joy of photographing Ben and his beautiful family in Benson last year.  Little did I know I would be photographing him in his brand new studio around the corner at "Fruitful Design" just months later!  This team of two was so fun to work with and I think we got some really great stuff!  Stay tuned for the new logo that Ben is designing for me. I can't wait!  What a talented guy!  And he does way more than great design!  I had the privilege of hearing him play the piano and sing, too!  It was hard not to sing along with him while shooting way too many photos.  Look him up if you need a piano teacher or just some good entertainment!

Edith: Almost 3!      Edith is one of my favorite little models!  I have been photographing her since she was a newborn and it's hard to believe she will be three years old this week!  I always get such amazing images from her!  She has the most hypnotic eyes, and when she looks right at the camera, I nearly melt.  This time, we went to Benson Park and explored and played.  I love to watch her curiously pick flowers or independently take a little walk by herself (with mom in view).  And her mom is amazing, too!  Kat (at Rain Salon) has been my stylist since I met her doing hair for a bride I was photographing way back in 2008 or so.  I was so impressed with what she had done for my bride, I just had to try her out, too!  I've been going to her ever since.  We have learned a lot about each other during the time I've spent in her chair through the years.  Our relationship has developed into a friendship, and I feel so lucky to be a part of Edith's life.  I sure do love watching her grow up!  Happy birthday Edith and congratulations, Kat, for making such a great kid!

Patrick + Andy      I am so excited about the wedding I just photographed with Dana Damewood last weekend!

     First of all, I find it so rewarding to work with other photographers.  Shortly after starting out on my own with a few weddings for friends and family, I started a business with Andrey Mikityuk called Corrie and Andrey Photographers.  We did some awesome work together.  After our divorce, I didn't want to stop photographing weddings!  I knew I had to keep shooting, but loved doing it with other talented photographers, so Kameron Bayne invited me to come work with him.  I was excited to be part of a team again, but also loved to see how other photographers did things slightly differently than I did.  We had so much fun together making beautiful work and solving challenges together that I opened myself up to "second-shooting" with other photographers, too!  I have also enjoyed "second-shooting" with Dana Damewood, Brad Iwen and Stacie Kinney over the past couple of years.  I have been fortunate enough to hire some of my former photography students from Metropolitan Community College of Omaha to assist me on some weddings, as well.  Alex and Miranda Benge have been a joy to work with on a few weddings and portrait sessions.  I love working with other talented photographers because I can see their ideas, watch how they interact with clients and observe how they solve all of the challenges that we face during a wedding day.  I always learn something new and gain from the experience, as I hope they do, too!

     Shooting with Dana and her assistant, Jackie is always a ball!  We are a powerful trio!  Not only do we have lots of fun, we compliment each other so well with our shooting styles.  I can't wait to see all of the images together when Dana gets them processed!  Here is just a teaser with a few favorites that I came home with.

     Patrick and Andy were so great.  They were so fun and easy to work with, and their friends and family were all so nice!  With Andy's former work on "Extreme Makeover" as an architectural designer, he was able to use the talents of his friends from the show to help their vision come to life.  The design, details and decorations were absolutely beautiful.  Here are a few images to give you just a taste of what the amazing day was like.  Be sure to check back to Dana's Blog to watch for her post as well!  Enjoy!

An Evening Shoot with Dana Damewood Dana Damewood is an excellent local photographer, and I feel lucky to call her my friend.  When we are not working together or talking about photography, sometimes we manage to get some other fun in, too!  I feel so fortunate that she was willing to take some photographs of me, while at the same time, I was taking some of my daughter, Mischa!  There were so many awesome images, it took me a very long time to narrow down my favorites! Finally, I was able to choose one for my "about" page for my website.  Here are some of my other favorites and the ones I took of Mischa.  Besides a few pesky mosquitoes, we had a lot of fun!  Thanks so much, Dana!

Elle is 4 years old! I can't believe Elle is 4 years old!  I have been photographing her since she was a newborn.  It's so rewarding for me to work with families through the years and watch their children grow up.  It really does happen so fast! Elle is growing up into an energetic little lady and her little sister Mackinzy is coming up right behind her!  She loves her big sister and tries to be just like her!  Thanks, Amy and Scott for another great opportunity to make beautiful images!
