Dowling Catholic Dance Team

I photographed the Dowling Catholic High School Dance Team this past summer for their annual school poster.
My sweet life team was out of town, so I had two very talented students help me with the styling and make-up that (very early) morning.
(Thanks, Rachel & Hope!) Along with several prop-toting, bench-carrying, kid-shuttling dance moms.

These girls are all as smart and nice as they are talented and beautiful. Truly. They are a special group of girls and deserved the best dance team poster. Ever.

Good luck in 2014, ladies!

ladies’ man.

And then there’s Dylan.
Already hip with the ladies & super smooth flower-giver.
Odds are in his favor that he’ll be a pretty good musician, too.
Watch out, sisters.

With his number one lady, beautiful Gwen.

That’s right.


I’ve been photographing this family every year since their son was born in 2011.
Now they have even more love in their family. Look at them, now!

This one!

A few I found from 2012 today. It is so fun to watch the family grow.

and teddy makes three.

Many of you will remember Matt & Juliet from one of the best weddings ever.

Well, now they have a Teddy. And, of course, he is beautiful.

Thanks for coming to Iowa and letting me meet this sweet boy. Loved seeing all three of you!
