You’ve seen this handsome face and this family before, years ago. They’ve changed a bit over the years, including the addition of this CUTEST BOY. OHMYGOSH. I love story sessions – even mini sessions can tell the best parts of your family’s days. I love how you can almost hear these photos. The sounds of […]
Storytelling sessions are about capturing moments, not poses. It’s about documenting what your days look like and also what these moments feel like. It’s a way to remember the things we might take for granted today that won’t last forever. “The big shiny moments get all of the recognition, but it’s the small ones that […]
Turning pain into praise. This family has had the unfortunate opportunity of doing just that. But goodness, they are doing it beautifully. When you watch someone journey this life the way that these two are, there is no denying the presence of our King. He is writing a story that is bigger than we can […]
These four are four of my favorite to photograph. I’ve had the privilege of having them in front of my camera a handful of times, and each time is better than the last. Their boys are SO CUTE. When I shot this session earlier this year (sweet baby Judah is already FIVE months old!), big […]
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 […]
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 […]
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.
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 […]
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. […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Some people imprint on your heart, and no matter the years or miles traveled, they are always a part of who you are. Meet the Bogels .We started their session in their GORGEOUS home, which happens to include a library, which happens to now be on my dream home list of necessities. Also, for those of […]
THESE TWO. Oh. my. word. I was lucky enough to photograph their engagement and wedding, and now I can add their one-year anniversary to our list. I love it. Chris and Stephanie:: thank you for having me, again and again. The honor truly is mine, and I am forever grateful for the two of you.
I am so excited to share these newborn photos with you. More than once, I’ve shared why I love shooting lifestyle newborn photography instead of a more posed, studio style, and this session is no exception. This sweet family had me to their home one morning shortly after their sweet Johanna was born, and I […]
I spent an evening with this amazing little miss and her amazing parents, and I can’t get over how incredibly cute she is! It’s not news around here that I’m in love with her and her parents, but seriously? I love her!
