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 […]
Meet Mitch. Mitch is a high school senior this year, and this guy is one of the good ones. I had the best time with him, photographing him at one of his favorite places, Christmas Lake Golf Course. I made bad jokes, asked him to do ridiculous things like walk laps around a tree, and […]
Meet Katelyn. I couldn’t deal with how much I loved shooting these photos. Kate is a PHENOMENAL singer, dancer, and musician. She wanted to incorporate some of her talents into her session, and it was SO much fun. And then there’s the fun fact that she’s BREATHTAKING. Katelyn… thank you, thank you, THANK YOU. Thank […]
Life with a newborn is something that is so worthy of documenting. It’s not about the cute newborn poses in the cute newborn outfits… it’s about your new normal with your new person. If ever there’s been a perfect detail to photograph at a newborn session, a press full of fresh coffee would be it. […]
These are some of my favorite photos of you. They’re from months ago, when we froze our tails off shooting a proposal. But these snowy images show off who you are – someone who sacrifices a rare day off to stand in the snow while I work. And who does it without thinking twice about […]
Being a newborn photographer means getting to spend a couple of quiet hours with a new baby and his sweet parents. It’s a role I never take for granted, and it’s even more special with the new parents are two of my dearest friends. Mirantes, shooting these was an honor beyond words. Thank you, thank […]
As a lifestyle photographer, photographing a family game night is something I get VERY excited about. And this game night was no exception. The Scrabble tiles were placed and the smack talk was handed out left and right. These are my people. :) Maybe it’s because they had me laughing the entire time, or maybe it’s […]
Darin and Emilee are two of the most special people I know, and their new little Levi is every bit of that, as well. Some of my favorite birth story images are these… everyone is waiting, full of anticipation, no one knowing when everything will change forever. Learning it was time to meet their son.This next […]
Welcome home, baby Avery. You are adored, but I’m certain you know that already. I know I’m not the only one who can’t get enough of baby yawns. I mean, is there anything cuter than this? Avery is the most perfect little guy. I can’t handle how cute he is. When you’re one week old, […]
My favorite kind of photos are lifestyle photos, and my favorite kids are these kids. So to put the two together is a dream for me. This is the second part of my recent Boone County Library session. My girl crashed this half, but together these two are too cute, so I think it all works […]
I cannot believe it’s this boy’s birthday month. And the fact that his baby brother is already SIX months?? I’m beside myself right now. We took advantage of the double milestone to not only photograph each of these cuties, but also to shoot a few family photos (you know I love this crew and take […]
The boss and I celebrated our 12 year anniversary this year. We knew we wanted to spend this day with the best of friends in one of our favorite places. This was our first Gatlinburg trip with Winnie, and it was great to share this time as a family. She may look like she enjoyed […]
This University of Cincinnati proposal was so much fun to be a part of. The weather was beautiful and the location was perfect. Oh, and the couple was one of the cutest and sweetest I’VE EVER MET. I love the details of every proposal, and this one was no exception. Under the ruse of getting family […]
As a photographer in Southern Indiana, I limit the family sessions I shoot. This isn’t because I don’t absolutely love photographing everyone I come across. It’s simply because connecting with my clients in a special way means my work will be my best. Amber and Jewel are exactly the kind of family I love to […]
I arrived at this newborn session so thankful for this job I get to do. Getting to spend time with this wonderful family again was such a joy. These big sisters have the beautiful gift of hospitality and were so sweet to me, making sure I was well taken care of and entertained. :) I […]
This fresh 48 session is one that is near and dear to my heart. Jason and Kelsey aren’t just clients, but they are friends, and I am lucky to count them as both. They have been expecting their sweet Olivia since we have known them, so getting to meet her was filled with eager excitement […]
This Clark Memorial hospital fresh 48 session was so much fun for me – I’ve known that birth photography/fresh 48’s are some of my favorite things to shoot, but this session kind of sealed the deal on that. There’s just something about watching a family introduce a new little person to the world. On this […]
