I can’t believe I’m already writing a four-month post. This little man of ours is a joy and a light, and it’s hard to believe he’s been in our arms for four months. But, at the same time, it’s hard to believe he hasn’t been here forever. This month has been a busy one for […]
Taken from Calla’s homecoming celebration announcement… “Calla’s vision is one of color and sparkle, glitter and glam, so please expect nothing less as we honor her beautiful heart and praise God for the forever impact she has made on each of us.” Calla, sweet girl, I think your vision was accomplished. This day was one […]
I’ve been doing this for almost 15 years. I’ve been given the gift of telling family stories … photographing babies as they grow, parents as they love. I’ve had the privilege to be a part of lives and celebrations filled with so much joy. There have been many moments I’ve photographed with tears in my […]
dear calla, I met your dad first. My husband, Shane, had recently taken a job at the church, and your dad was one of the first people he connected with. They got along right away – they have so much in common. First, their similar, goofy personalities that seem to come out the most when […]
For a year, I have tried to write about this. 365 days of trying to put words to a grief I’ve never experienced… and a redemption that I didn’t know my soul needed. Then I found this: “And I did not know that in the middle of much pain and grief and loss, I would […]
This month has been my favorite one yet. This month, our little guy’s personality has really started to peak through. He’s been giving us genuine happy smiles, and he has started cooing back to us when we talk to him. He adores his big sister, and is always scanning the room, looking for her. He’s […]
This month has been a big one for our boy. He’s grown leaps and bounds (currently filling out his 3-6 month clothes), and he’s been giving us some of the sweetest smiles. Towards the end of my pregnancy, I was diagnosed with polyhydramnios – having excess amniotic fluid. We checked for the obvious and more […]
I wasn’t sure I wanted to blog our boy’s monthly photos and milestones… I’ve pulled back on how much I share my babies on the internet, and while I still post some photos of them on my Instagram, I am working hard to protect them from being over-shared online. That being said, I know how […]
I have been so thankful for the families I have met solely through this work of mine. I adore this family, and if it weren’t for photography, I don’t know if our paths would have ever crossed. But they did years ago, and for that I am grateful.
I was so excited to get to photograph this sweet family at Richwood on the River. As a storyteller photographer, children and families are my favorite people to have in front of my camera. And when the kids are this cute, it just makes my job that much easier. :)
I absolutely love when I get to photograph families year after year. It’s fun to see little ones change through photos, and I am honored to get to help document these seasons. This sweet family was no exception.
Jenny is one of the most driven entrepreneurs I’ve met, and this is especially evident in her business, The Elderberry Co. We shot some branding images at her shop, and then went on to the The Root for some less specific headshot style photos.
Shooting branding sessions isn’t something I do a lot of, but I love it when I get the opportunity. Especially when it’s for local, small businesses like The Elderberry Co.
If you’ve been around here for any amount of time, you know that this family is a regular favorite of mine. I love getting to mark time with their family photos and their sweet girl’s birthday photos every year. I am FOREVER thankful for the three of them.
I absolutely love motherhood and getting to photograph it, and I absolutely love this session. These two melted my heart from the minute we began.
OH THIS FAMILY. They make my heart smile. :) These three fit who I am as a photographer, and when you find people like that to photograph, you never let them go.
Every time I get to photograph this sweet couple, I’m overwhelmed with gratitude. They are now THREE of my favorite people to document, and it’s such an honor to witness some of their biggest life moments. Also, friends, I cannot say enough about the importance and joy of fresh 48 sessions. These moments and memories […]
I am so thankful with every opportunity to photograph this sweet family. From their engagement to their wedding to their family sessions since, I have loved every chance I’ve had to photograph them.
I have adored this family from day one. When asked to come back and photograph them again, I may have literally JUMPED at the opportunity. Can we talk about this house for a minute? 😍
We are celebrating our sweetest girl’s golden birthday this year. This year, more than ever, we are fully aware that each birthday is a precious gift. We will never be sad to see her grow up, even if we wish we could sit in these moments with her just a little longer. She is quickly […]
3 years It is hard to believe she’s turning three. When I took her two-year photos last year, I had no idea what was going to unfold over the next 365 days. 2019 has been the hardest year of our lives, but she has been such a light for us this year. She is such […]
Hi friends. I know it’s been a minute since I’ve been around. It’s been a whirlwind of a summer. It’s possibly been the hardest summer of our lives, but it’s also been one of the best. Here’s a quick recap: Shane was offered a job at Lakeside Christian Church in Northern Kentucky, and we are […]
I adore photographing motherhood, even if it means just squeezing a few minutes in at the end of a family session. Not to mention, this sweet family has been a favorite of mine from day one.
Every one-year-old should be celebrated with cake and photos. In fact, every birthday should be celebrated this way! I am certain that all mommas would agree that our babies grow and change so quickly. So, really, documenting each year with a birthday session (and some sweet treats) is nothing short of necessary! Avery is a […]
As a children’s photographer, I was SO excited about photos for this family. I was honored to photograph this family in their beautiful home shortly after they became a family of four. It was only a few weeks after Winnie was born, and I felt a beautiful kinship. And now, they are a family of […]
Shooting birthday photos is something I love to do. Babies – no matter the age – are always so much fun to celebrate. Olivia made her debut in front of my camera when she was only about 24-hours old, and here we are, one year later! Olivia, it was a joy to celebrate your birthday […]
Callie and her momma and daddy are some of my favorite people to photograph. I love celebrating her birthday with her every year with our annual birthday session – this year, she turned THREE, and I had so much fun shooting these photos. Sweet Callie is so much like my Winnie – they are less […]
I was honored to shoot Rylee’s birth, so it was especially exciting to be invited back to photograph her Fresh 48 session. Thank you all so VERY much for having me.
As a birth photographer, I’ve doing this for a few years, and this last year has been one of the best for me. This most recent birth was the perfect way to wrap up this season for the time being. As always, the staff and facilities at Norton’s Women’s and Children’s Hospital were incredible. Some […]
I never have adequate words after photographing this family. My heart is always so full. This time it was just baby boy and his momma, and it was one of my favorite sessions to date. I have the best, most beautiful friends. I can’t help but love these images of little Avery… even when he […]
I stopped shooting weddings last year, so I love that I still get to shoot engagement sessions from time to time. Ben and Emma made this frosty morning so much fun. We started our morning at one of my favorite places for coffee: Quills in downtown New Albany. After a little caffeine, we walked around […]
Birth story photography is something I’ve been doing more of recently. It’s something that blows me away every time. It’s a gift to be invited into something so intimate and beautiful, and I am grateful to these amazing people who trust me to document their stories. This sweet family welcome their perfect baby girl at […]
Motherhood sessions will never not be my favorite things to shoot. There is something so beautiful and special, whether your baby is brand new or going off to college – celebrating motherhood is always the best.
Fresh 48 sessions are my absolute favorite things to photograph. I say it every time I shoot one – I love this job, and I’m beyond thankful. Magnolia was born at St. Elizabeth in Northern Kentucky, and while I don’t need much convincing to head to that part of town, I don’t mind having sessions […]
I love photographing all things babies – birth stories, fresh 48 sessions, and, of course, newborn sessions. I loved 2018, but it taught me a few hard lessons about what I truly enjoy when it comes to my work. So now, I’m looking forward to honing this craft even further in 2019, and I am […]
This is one of my favorite motherhood sessions I have shot. These two are the sweetest together, and I am so thankful to have had them in front of my camera.
Being a proposal photographer is so much fun and always exciting. I get to meet the best people, hang out in the coolest places, and see some of the most beautiful moments take place. This Lisse Restaurant proposal was no exception to all of those things. My favorite part of this night could easily have […]
It’s no secret, but I love motherhood sessions. And I also love sessions that take place in the cutest bakeries, like 410 Bakery.
Southern Indiana has been so good to me this year. The colors and the weather and the families I have photographed have all come together so PERFECTLY. And this family is no exception. I ADORED our time together. And GOSH THESE KIDS. 😍 SO! CUTE! But is it any surprise that the little ones are perfect […]
I can’t believe this guy is already one! Photographing this family time and time again is my favorite thing.
Meet Nathan. Nathan is a high school senior who also happens to be one of my favorite high school kids everrrrr. It doesn’t hurt that he comes from the best. But this guy IS the best. We had so much fun shooting these photos, and he made my job easy with that cute wittle face […]
I love this sweet little family, so getting to photograph them two times in just a few weeks time was so much fun. THIS KID. Oh my word. Sheffield family… thank you. Again and again, thank you. I so very much loved taking these, and I am so excited to call you all friends.
When I last photographed Jason and Kelsey, they had just met their sweet Olivia. Now, that sweet newborn baby is a beautiful 7-month-old, and she is one of the cutest things I have EVER seen. Pettys… as always, thank you. Olivia is entirely too cute – baby girls are a dream, and I am so […]
I have loved photographing this family over the last couple of years – it is always an honor and a gift to get asked to come back again and again. :)When Robin asked if we could shoot at 410 Bakery, the place where these three have a weekly breakfast date together, I was SO excited. […]
The Green family. I am honored every time they ask me to do this, and every time we get together, it’s like getting together with old friends. Because at this point, that’s exactly who they are. We met years ago, but as I’ve gotten to photograph them since then, having them in front of my […]
The Nantz family. Three of the very best. I’ve been so honored to get to photograph them a few times over the last year, and as Avery gets older, it just keeps getting better and better. They are the very definition of kindness and friendship – we adore them. Plus, hello. Logan is a total […]
As a family photographer, I love these four because they are so easy to photograph! As an individual/mom/wife of a minister, I love these four because of a list of reasons too long to include here. And I know I’m not alone in being left overwhelmed with their kindness and their love. They are just […]
You guys know that I am ALL about a themed party. From our Mad Men Christmas party to my girl’s Jimmy Fallon first birthday (apparently I never blogged that?), I LOVE a good theme. So, when Emily told me that this party was going to be Parks and Rec themed, you KNOW I was IN! […]
As a family photographer, I have the happiest, most beautiful clients. The Smiths are always laughing, smiling, full of joy… they are the kind of people you meet and then wonder, “where have these two been all my life?” Their sweet girl, Mattie, was a star. Whenever a client asks about bringing their dog, my answer […]
