lifestyle portraits

It seems like just yesterday you were staring down at your left hand in awe of that shiny new ring but six anniversaries and two babies later, here you are. 

Regardless of the season that you're in, and whether your babies are big, small or furry, or if you have started a new business, this time in your life deserves to be captured by something other than your iPhone. Portrait sessions were born from past and new clients asking me to document their evolving lives and growing families. Honestly,   I  just can't get enough of them!


I love creating photos to remind people that in spite of the fact that Friday night involves more sweatpants than heels, their laundry room looks like an episode of hoarders and they're on a first name basis with all the Uber Eats drivers in town, their love and their stories are beautiful. 

So let's plan a day, pick a location that is meaningful to you and create a slew of images that will fill up the frames on your walls  for years to come.

I contacted Hope Ballenger to do my engagement photos! Her level of professionalism and passion won me over quickly! She was able to capture so much beauty with each shot! My husband and I were so impressed, so we used Hope Ballenger for my bridal session and for our wedding day! I am beyond pleased with the work she did for us! We always get compliments on our wedding day photos. Her work is exceptional! We can't wait to work with her again!
