hi, friends! my name is jaime and i am a lifestyle and portrait photographer specializing in the creation of modern maternity, newborn, baby, child and family portraits. my style is a bit eclectic and spans from classic portraiture to that of a journalistic nature, as i strive to capture authenticity of the everyday & beauty in the mundane. i work primarily with natural light and operate as a location photographer for the majority of my work. this enables me to focus on capturing the essence of my clients in surroundings that are both familiar and comfortable to them.

i may offer advice on wardrobe and offer posing suggestions here and there, but sessions are meant to be simple, relaxed, & fun. wear what reflects your style and personality and i'll help you to pose yourselves naturally. my number one goal is for you to be comfortable and to be YOU. i will laugh with you, cry with you, chat with you, and maybe even hug you -- together we will create an atmosphere that will encourage genuine moments, raw emotion, natural expressions, smiles, laughter, and silly’s. if a temper tantrum should arise, as they sometimes do, don’t worry about it -- those are just as much a part of life and childhood as everything else -- i'm sure you'll want to remember those beautifully trying moments as well.

when i'm not photographing the crazy-beautiful-every-day-glory-YOU-call-LIFE for families across central iowa, you can probably find me goofing around with my littles, hiking up in ledges state park, slooooooowly sipping an unsweetened black iced tea, or traveling across the country with my family of four. we love to explore new places together, and there is no place is too far!
