glimpses of our life and work


Betsy + Todd: INLOVE

What a fabulous day with Betsy and Todd… Despite the gnats that wouldn’t stop attacking us, we had a great time shooting today. We went very natural today: grass and trees. Betsy was so inspiring with her natural, creamy wardrobe and her fair skin and gorgeous blonde hair. I could’ve shot her all day 🙂 I hope you know how beautiful you are!!! So of course, I couldn’t pick just a few to show you. Here are 11. Enjoy!

I’m going to start off with a shot that I just wanted to transform into a more dramatic piece. Let me know what you think.



Had an awesome shoot with Rebekah on Monday. I hope you enjoy. 🙂

Brooke + Darren: WEDDING DAY

Brooke + Darren: We have LOVED getting to know you and felt so blessed to get to enjoy your wedding day with you. I hope you love every photo! We look forward to keeping in touch and shooting for you again in the future! Love, love, love you guys!

Brooke absolutely adores her nieces and I had a ton of pix her loving on them. So sweet.

Josh, Brianna + the kiddos

It was a beautiful day and I was so excited to shoot Josh, Brianna and the kids today! I was super excited to see their newest little one, Graham. He is so sweet and I really had trouble not posting about 20 photos of him on here. Haha. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this glance at our day. 🙂

Kids always make it interesting!

I love this shot because of the spit! Haha.

This little girl….

Andy + Adam

I got to take some pix in the freezing cold with Adam + Andy this weekend. Great friends that we don’t see enough of!!! We started off with a few lovey dovey couple shots and then ended off with me and my ideas for Adam some new shots for his music stuff. Adam is an incredible singer/songwriter! Check him out on Facebook: adamsullivanmusic or on Twitter @theadamsullivan.


I’ve been wanting to blog this session for quite a while now. I finally shot Brooke and Darren’s wedding this past Saturday so now I can post her bridal sesh! LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT! I hope you guys enjoy them. 🙂

Some things you should know…

Some things that I want ALL brides-to-be to know….

1. It doesn’t matter what all the perfect planning books or wedding etiquette says, your wedding can reflect exactly who you are no matter what. So if you want hotdogs and hamburgers at a super cool rustic backyard shindig… DO IT! That goes for any other idea you are contemplating, but keep wondering what others may think! You and your guy are the only opinions that should matter when it comes to designing your perfect wedding.
2. Work it in your budget for a make up artist. You will be surprised how much it makes you glow in photos. It brings a little boost of confidence that shines from the inside out too.
3. Make sure you have found your “perfect match” in a photographer. It’s not just their work you need to look at, you are more importantly seeing how your personalities mesh. You spend ALOT of time with your photographer and on the wedding day, they are with you at every moment so you need to feel totally comfortable! They should feel like a BFF by the wedding day so that their presence makes you feel at ease, not add more stress.
4. Take into consideration whether venues offer a clean up service or if you should hire one. If you can afford it, that would alleviate your family having to spend all night stacking chairs, etc. and cleaning up after you are gone. Trust me, I have the type of family that wants to do it all, but if you can talk them out of it, DO IT just because you love them!

That’s all for now 🙂 Just wanted to share! Love, Darla

And since it’s always good to have a photo in a blog post, here is a cool nighttime shot!
