Jon + Morgan

It was a honor to get to know this couple during our engagement session! My favorite thing was watching their beautiful relationship. There was so much joy, laughter, & lots of love between the two of them. Jon & Morgan we cannot wait to be a part of your wedding day! 



Have you ever wondered what it's like to have a photographer in the room while you give birth?! The majority of the time you don't even know I'm there. I love just being a fly on the wall and being able to capture the most raw, vulnerable moment in someone's life. Words cannot even describe what it's like to be able to tell the story of a new life. I hope these emotional photos give you just a small glimpse into birthing a child, remember the birth of your child, or bring hope that one day you too will birth a new life into this world!! 

I'm so thankful I got to be apart of Carter entering this world. Such a sweet moment + we will always have a special bond. Welcome Carter Jean, you have the most peaceful little heart + one loving family that already adores you! 



Sean + Emily 

What a sweet wedding day celebrating the marriage of Sean and Emily. I met these two last year at another wedding that I was photographing. When Emily reached out to me to shoot her wedding, I was so excited to work with her again! I can't wait to share more of this beautiful day! These two are so perfect together!

What I love most about engagements is really getting to know the couple before the wedding. It just makes the wedding day go so smoothly because you've already built a relationship. I'm so excited to get to know Brent & Cindy more. We had so much fun laughing and capturing their love! May can't come soon enough, it will be such a sweet day celebrating them! 


I'm so excited for Kelly & Katie Gilgenbach as they get ready to welcome their first born little baby girl into their life in 2017. What a sweet new beginning as Parker Rose joins this beautiful family! So happy for you Gilenbach's,
what a sweet gift from God! 

"For you formed my inward parts; 
you knitted me together in my mother's womb. 
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are your works; 
my soul knows it very well."

I'm so freakin excited to finally share this amazing gender reveal for our friends Griffin & Amy Hess! Meyers is going to be a big brother to a baby girl! We had so much fun revealing the gender and it was so hard for me to keep it a secret for 6 DAYS without anyone else knowing!! Congrats to the Hess family - we are beyond thrilled for your baby girl! 


So thankful for my growth in photography skills. It's crazy to look back on old photos! 


I love meeting new families! I'm also thankful that photography came AFTER having twin girls. I practiced on our ladies for almost a year before launching Copper and Pearl Photography. We pulled out all of the stops on our twins. I'd do anything to get them to look, play, & laugh in front of the camera! It has helped so much with family sessions - you've got to be so patient with the children & never rush them during the session! I always like to play with the kids & get them comfortable in front of my camera. It's all about the family & making sure they enjoy the experience! 

Thank you Shack family - y'all are so precious and kind! I loved spending my evening with y'all on the night of your 9th anniversary!! 


The Phillips Family -- they stole my heart right away! Such a sweet family with precious little girls. Their daughters were so kind & their laughs brought so much joy! What I love is that they haven't had photos taken of them since their wedding & they chose me to take them. Such an honor to be able to capture this time in their life! I just love meeting & spending so much time with new people through photography!!

The past few weeks have been full of lots of family mini-sessions! I love that I get to meet so many new people through photography. It's been the sweetest gift. This season has been full of new clients & new faces - I couldn't be more excited about that! Chellsee + Josh are getting married next October & I just cannot wait to document this one! Little Liam will melt your heart in these photos, I cannot get over how precious he was! What a sweet family!

My neighbors are legit! When Tara messaged me about doing some family photos, she had the idea to do them in our neighborhood. It was the perfect cold fall day, the only one we've had this season! But, I'm pretty sure we nailed it. Plus little Wyatt is the cutest little boy around & I think he could make it as a model with that big ol' smile. Such a sweet family & I'm thankful to live so close to them!

I love being able to tangibly give someone a moment in time. An entire season that they can look back on and remember the good, bad, & ugly. All of it just laid out for the world to see. I love capturing your people in your place, the place that you spend so much of your life. It's a lifestyle session, it's natural, it's comfortable, & it's memories you will treasure forever!

"If you want to change the world, go home and love your family."

This family. They have quickly become people that will hold such a special place in my heart!
