Grace Almond Film Newborn Session

Grace Almond Film Newborn Session
Meeting baby Grace was a highlight of my week! I was able to do Margaret and Jonathan's maternity session a couple months prior, so I was excited about seeing the two of them holding their little one in their arms. I got one little glimpse of that sweet little head full of hair and almost fell over... SO adorable! Y'all have heard me say before: you never really kn[...]

Felicity Kelley 1 Year Film Session

Felicity Kelley 1 Year Film Session
This was my second to last session with the Kelley family... the first being Amelia and Andrew's maternity session, then Amelia's baby shower, and then Felicity's newborn photos. I actually just photographed Felicity's first birthday party 2 weeks ago, and it was so cool to have that milestone as a marker for the end of our time together. Amelia and Andrew are so i[...]

Kenzie Jackson Film Newborn Session

Kenzie Jackson Film Newborn Session
Every once in a while I do a session that just refills my tank in a way I didn't really expect or know I needed. Kenzie's newborn session was one of those sessions. Instead of driving home I wanted to go do 3 more just like it as I was pulling out of their driveway. Pretty sure the family pictures I got of the Jackson's are some of my favorites. Like, ever. I think[...]

Thomas Family Day in the Life Film Session

Thomas Family Day in the Life Film Session
I take a lot of portraits. Candid portraits, even, that are a little more photojournalistic. But. There's something that I love so much about straight up documentary-style photography. It's real, it's raw, it's unplanned. I've loved it since I studied it in college, and now that I can apply it to the portraiture side of photography? Dream come true. Especially when it[...]

LULA Hair and Makeup Styled Shoot

LULA Hair and Makeup Styled Shoot
This woman is full of talent. Samantha Ray of LULA hair and make up was 100% the vision and talent behind this shoot. When I showed up, I knew I'd be shooting lovely models, showing off their hair and make up. I didn't know I would be photographing 3 distinct looks on 3 lovely women - all lovely in their own, different ways. I was blown away. I ended up naming eac[...]

Camping Trip 2016

Camping Trip 2016
Every year, we go camping with our dear friends Emily and John. (See our first and second and third years camping.) This is year four, and we added two other little campers to our mix! Milly and June were first timers, but goodness they did great. Well, if you count the fact that I only got 3 hours of sleep the first night. (Milly apparently thought it was SO fun to s[...]
