Welcome To Lovely Moments Photography

Story City, IA Maternity, Newborn, Baby & Family Photographer

I was forced to wear clothes that didn’t represent who I was.
I was forced to do my hair in a way that didn’t define me.
I was forced to pose and tilt my head ever so slightly to the left in order to please the photographer.
Those childhood experiences were miserable and I dreaded them.

I solemnly swear that our time together will be the opposite of the above. I am here to make your photography experience as unique as you are. Show your colors.

These photos will become the Light in Your Storm for years to come.

My childhood photography experience:

Your photography experience:


We used it before the hipsters did.



Infinite battery life, no loading time, no data fees.



Wouldn't it be awesome if these were wearable?


My promise to you
