Thoughts on Social Media

Thoughts on Social Media
I'm gonna be real honest here. I've been having a hard time with social media lately. It honestly all started when Milly was born. Before I had a baby, I swore that I'd never be one of those annoying moms who posted a million terrible photos of her kids all day long. (Sorry, moms... it's just how I honestly felt.)

The Lively Workshop Editorial
By the second editorial shoot at The Lively Workshop everyone was starting to get into their own groove of things. I was starting to feel my own photography style coming out, and feeling more confident in what I was photographing. I love everything about this shoot: the rain drops, the gorgeous Hayley Paige gown, and the model's infectious smile. I was pushed to captu[...]

Shannon and Aaron's love story is one that I will never forget.

Best of 2015: Families
I love that I can look back on the year - reflect on the families that I've met and the work that I've done - and I almost explode with joy and gratitude. Joy because many of these faces are now friends, many of them I'll see for additional sessions this year, all of them were uniquely wonderful to work with; gratitude because I get to photograph families like these f[...]

Elizabeth photographed more family sessions than she e[...]
