Family, Senior, and Newborn Photographer in North Liberty, Iowa


Working with a photographer shouldn’t feel like adding a ton of tasks to your plate.
(Who has time for that anyway?)


Let me take care of the details for you.

You don’t have to pick a location or dream up outfits out of thin air. I’ll tell you where to go, how to be, where to put your hands, where to look, what to do, and best of all, we will have FUN.

I’ve got you!

Photos don’t have to be hard. There’s a better way, and I’d love to show you.

Hello there!

I want to make your experience as stress-free as possible, and to create authentic photos of you and your family. You don’t have time to manage a photographer on top of everything else, so I make the process of photos easy, start to finish.


Let’s find out.

You're busy.

As all get-out, and you need a photographer that doesn’t add to your stress, has her $**t together, and never leaves you guessing.

Posed? Meh.

Your favorite family photos aren’t traditionally posed. The “look at the camera and smile” photo is fine, but not your first pick to go on the walls.

You're laid-back.

You don’t take yourself too seriously. Sometimes the kids eat cereal for dinner, but they survive just fine (and hey, it’s fortified).

You ready?

Let’s get this party started. See the low-down on packages, pricing, and how to book your session.

“You did such an amazing job capturing my family. It was so nice to see genuine smiles from my kids. You are amazing at what you do.”

—Kara E.

“You had great communication throughout, and were so easy to work with!”

— Michelle E.

“Lydia, you get us. I commend you on your ability to see people in their element and to capture love and emotions in such a genuine way!”

— Kirsten K.

“I cannot thank you enough for making Audrey’s senior photos so special, and your attention to detail. It will be a day she will never forget!”

— Pamela M.

“There is not a thing I can think of that would improve the experience. You are on top of your game and it shows.”

— Colin O.

“These photos are stunning. I can’t stop looking at them, and just cannot thank you enough.”

— Cara K.

“You are so wonderful that I can’t even breathe.”

— Sara J.

“Seeing my daughter’s face light up when she saw her senior photos was priceless. Thank you for helping her feel relaxed and comfortable, she had so much fun!”

— Jessie A.
