    Hi i'm tori, a portrait photographer in Syracuse, ks and i'm so glad you stopped by! I started my business in 2004 and have been on a crazy ride since. I am a wife to jeff and a mama to reid and ivy. Our lives are pretty crazy most days, but I love developing new relationships with everyone who walks through our door. My new studio and I have a love/hate relationship, but we are starting to move into more love. I would love for you to come see me.

Sweet baby breck is 6 months!!

Baby cousin Breck came to visit Friday, and he could not be any cuter or happier! What a sweet boy he was for us. It’s been a really tough weekend around here for us, and editing this sweet face tonight really makes me grateful for life and family. When we routinely go through our everyday lives, I so easily forget how big, perfect, loving, and truly wonderful our Father in heaven is. I am given so much more than I deserve everyday that i’m breathing. It is impossible to comprehend the greatness of His love, but just like one of my favorite songs by Addison Road…”the slightest glimpse of you brought my down to my knees….” God amazingly shows me His love in others. I think as a woman and a mother I naturally want to do more of the helping than the receiving, and when God graciously gives to me when I least expect it, I really struggle and feel undeserving. So thankful to be shedding lots of tears of thankfulness and not sorrow today. I am overwhelmed by His mercy and grace. We do not deserve it, but He loves us so much he pours it out to us everyday.

So….now that I have completely exposed myself tonight (this is feeling very uncomfortable!!!!) I am going to pull myself together, and good grief, quit crying!!! My poor kids probably think i’m a complete basket case! Well, that’s not that far off most days….. lets just blame it on being a woman.

But really, check out that Addison Road song it’s called “what do I know of holy” it gets me every time.

ok, back to baby Breck…doesn’t he have just the cutest smile??

R & D thanks for coming to see me, and thank you for all your love and help!

sweet & pink baby girl!

Seriously cute! this was such a fun session, with an adorable little girl and her big sis!  Her sweetness and spunk reminded me of our ivy june. She endured a lot, and did so great!  And that beautiful cake was made by her mama!


Excited to finally get to do a day of mini sessions in the new studio! Will be posting all the backdrop options soon. Would love to see your darling kiddos:)Babies to 15 year olds are all sessionfb

another baby club sweetheart turns 2!!

I love the baby club, and I love watching them grow up! what a little doll she is. Also got to see her big sister and mama & daddy. these girls are just the cutest and always have so much fun feeding them candy:)thank you for being my first on the new studio project. I think i’m going to really love it! made this new background late one night…I woke jeff up to see it and he was not impressed. I think he likes it better now.


One of my absolute favorites…the baby club! Now we are offering a lighter version. If you’re anything like me, this may be more realistic for you, especially if your sweet new baby has older siblings! 3 sessions in your baby’s first year, with a $50 print credit each time. Price is $200.
That first year is so fun, photograph it!
Baby club is a great baby gift, buy them the whole package, or a gift card with any amount to go towards it! who wouldn’t love that as a gift?? well, I know I would. especially for mothers who may already have everything they need.
excited to meet lots of new babies in 2014!!-89 copybw
