more about me

I am a traveling STORYTELLER photographer & humanitarian telling epic life stories around the globe. We are based out of Denver, Kansas City or wherever you're from. proving you can be both a goofball & hopeless romantic, if not adventuring, you can find me cuddling with my fur babies on the couch
with my laptop & a glass of milk or renovating an old vintage trailer of some sort with
my husband.

Then comes a baby… Melissa and Kory + 1

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a puppy, (why has this not been added in the song yet) then comes a baby in a baby carriage.

One of my favorite couples. I’ve seen their story and their family grow from the beginning, and that’s one of my FAVORITE things about my job. To look back at their first beloved session as an engaged couple also taken at the Longview Farm area, and then to see them get married and get a puppy (a large one too), and now a little belly, and soon to be little man in their world. This makes me so excited. Melissa + Kory will be the best parents. Still in adoration as they look at each other, there’s enough love here to have nothing less than a fulfilled life together, now, with a precious addition.

Congratulations on your great baby news Melissa+ Kory!

I’ve been blessed to have a healthy and enjoyable pregnancy. Having this little boy with me every day and feeling his kicks, bumps and hiccups is hands down my favorite part.”

I truly believe that being active has helped this pregnancy in so many ways! It’s kept my health right on track, it’s kept my weight down and it’s kept my mood UP! I would also say to document it. I have been and I know I’ll never regret it!

I look forward to learning as well. I’m sure Baby Schartz will challenge me some days, but I know our bond is so strong already and any bad days will be outnumbered by the good days.
