Oh hey, look who it is. One of my favorite bands and overall groups of people. Pay no mind to the fact that I’m related to 1/3 of the people in this photo. If you’re in Omaha, catch them at the Omaha Community Playhouse. And if not, catch them on their upcoming tour starting in January!
Whoa! You guys, I was hired to photograph the brand new Noah’s Event Venue in Omaha on behalf of their corporate management and I gotta say. This place is stunning. Noah’s is really upping Omaha’s wedding game. There are four different rooms available inside and two outdoor patios. It’s big, bright and modern yet classic.
RDG is a super rad company here in Omaha. They threw an incredible event for their employees recently, focusing on creativity and creation. Employees spent an evening at Hot Shops art center making art for their office. Glass blowing, pottery, metal working. It was so much fun!
If you’ve ever met me, it’s no surprise that I love me some Stevie Nicks. When I get dressed in the morning, I look at myself and ask, “Would Stevie wear this?” (Well no, because Stevie probably isn’t shopping at Target and Forever 21 but you know what I’m going for.) She is a rock goddess and I love her. You know who else loves her some Stevie? My talented hair and makeup stylist buddy, Becky Grey. We teamed up for a shoot with the goooorgeous Megan. She takes directions like, “Spin around and dance like you’re at a concert and on drugs,” and she makes them look like real directions.

Aaron is a friend of mine who is about to head to L.A. to film a second season of his web series, ReStrung. He’s a musician, writer, actor, comedian, modern day Renaissance man. It’s always a good time hanging out with Aaron.
One of my favorite things to do is head shot/portrait sessions for creatives. I have the pleasure of knowing a few musicians around town and it’s always a great time having them in the studio. It’s like a creative punch to the arm.
Well, hello. Lovely Tara stopped by for a few new promotional shots for her various (and successful) musical endeavors. I confessed to her immediately that I was incredibly nervous to be photographing her. So like any true professional, I got out a bottle of wine and forced her drink a glass with me. She didn’t put up much of a fight, I’m just sayin.
You better believe I take advantage of being married into a family of musicians. My husband and two of his brothers are in this little show called Yesterday and Today: The Interactive Beatles Experience. It’s no big deal. They just play any Beatles’ song requested – on the fly – in front of hundreds of people. Something we’ve all done, obviously.
This past December 22nd would have been their dad’s 60th birthday. To show the love and support everyone has for the brothers and the memory of their dad, the entire audience held up hearts during the show. It was one of the most touching moments I’ve ever experienced.
