• Welcome! I'm Faye and I have been capturing and preserving life's important moments for over 18 years. Over the years I have photographed a variety of subjects. However, I'm most passionate about families and weddings. I'm confident my experience, compassion for others and my obsession for gorgeous light will result in beautiful heirloom photos to be cherished for lifetimes to come. If you are new to the site, peek through my portfolio. Or you may want to scroll down through the blog to view my most recent work along with some of my personal adventures. Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

There isn’t much sweeter in this world than a young adorable family!  (okay…obviously puppies…..maybe if they added puppies to their family…but they have two cats at home so I think puppies are out for now)  Wade has been a good friend since my senior year of high school.   I treasure that we have stayed in touch over the years (neither of us have lived in our home town since graduating.  They live in a suburb of Chicago)   Wade’s wife Mira is just as sweet and lovely in person as she is beautiful in photos!   AND….can we talk about her hair for a moment!!!!!!!  GORGEOUS!  You two are such amazing first time parents.  Bennitt is one lucky kiddo!  Not to mention the cutest little guy I’ve photographed in a while.   He was a little fussy for most of our session…but lots of babies are.  Luckily Wade and Mira were up for trying the next crazy or fun idea I had up my sleeve to keep him as happy as possible.  Thanks again for a great session!  So glad our schedules were able to line up in Auburn.  030031032033034035036037Bennitt you are still unbelievably cute even when you’re a little grumpster!

A few weeks ago and and I headed to Las Vegas for Dad and Angie’s wedding.   It was a great trip and the first time we’ve experienced 105 degree temperatures!  IT WAS HOT…but luckily it’s what they call “dry heat” so not as draining as the humidity here in the mid-west.   They had a sweet and simple ceremony at the viva las vegas wedding chapel…..and no Elvis did not marry them….(but he married the next couple and sang to them while driving in a pink caddy….yep…anything can happen in Vegas)

Congrats and best wishes Dad and Angie.  I’m very happy for you two!002003004My brother and his sweet family made the trip out too.  005006007I brought my camera for a mini session of the bride and groom after the ceremony.  It was mini…remember temps over 100 degrees.   We spent about 5 minutes outside the chapel.  If you know my dad….you know he’s a very fun loving kidding around kind of guy.  Any of my goofiness…I get it all from him!  lol008009he’s a pretty cute photobomber!010011012013And another 5 minutes outside the Golden Nugget downtown.  014015Love and hugs to you guys!
