Kallen is ONE

August 24, 2020

The Ayers family has the CUTEST boys ever and it just so happened to be a birthday celebration of the tinniest of Ayers, Kallen! These sweet boys stole my heart the moment I met them and their photos are pulling my heart strings again today! Kallen and Mommy have made it to ONE YEAR of […]

Although plans didn’t go as expected (hello 2020), this day couldn’t have been any more perfect. When Katie messaged me about the replanning of their April wedding, of course, everyone was bummed. This was the very beginning of COVID, and it was still so new to everyone. There wasn’t a single plan anyone had that […]

Covid-19 has tried really hard to cancel all the things this 2020. I get it, we want to keep our loved ones safe! But it doesn’t mean you have to cancel your wedding! I know scaling down your wedding will be difficult, just keep in mind that your guests may scale it down for you! […]

Brinley | Newborn Session She’s here, she’s here! And oh, my heart she is perfect. Brinley made her debut and Mommy and Daddy are so in love. My first praise to Jesus was about Brinley’s hair. Insert all the heart eye emojis. I kept telling Brooke during Brinley’s session that I couldn’t get over her […]

I met with Ashlee & Matt last night for their engagement session and let me tell you, the wait was worth it. They did not disappoint. Hollyfield Manor is so beautiful and if you have seen my Instagram stories, you already know about the tree-lined drive and beautiful historic home with columns on the front. […]

The Dawson Family

July 7, 2020

I’ve taken on more large family sessions this year than I have since starting my business in 2010, and I’m not mad about it. I’m an only child and so I’ve always longed for family and relationships so strong they could be blood. My husband is one of seven and I’ve grown up with them […]

Yesterday, although it was HOT… it was an absolute dream! I simply cannot get over how stunning this vision of Jami’s that we brought to life. So much so, that I had to release this post less than 24 hours later! The color palette was so refreshing and had every wow factor you could possibly […]

Do you know how when your favorite people share their favorite people with you? It’s super amazing and awesome. While on vacation I got an email inquiring about an engagement session which already makes me do a happy dance (I love people in love if you didn’t pick up on that already!), but then I […]

Mommy & Me

June 24, 2020

Can I let you in on a secret? My heart longs for more Mommy & Me sessions. They seriously have become one of my absolute favorite portrait sessions. If you are a Momma reading this and you haven’t had a Mommy & Me session, no matter how old your babe is, JUST DO IT! You […]

The Walker Family

June 20, 2020

Rain rain go away, come again another day! On second thought, let’s have fun with it and hunt for some rainbows! The Walker family will be welcoming their second baby and I couldn’t be any more excited than I already am. Willa is a doll and this family is one of my favorites to photograph. […]
