Baby Graycen is here! I had the pleasure of peeking in on this family’s first few days as a family of four. It never gets old seeing the sweetest tiny humans in all their newness. Maximus is testing out his new role and he had all the curiosity and tenderness toward his new sister. She’s […]

Fair warning, blog readers – your eyeballs are about to be wowed. Shannon and Brittany’s wedding day was SO full of color, SO saturated with beauty of all kinds, and SO rooted in the best things in life. I felt the wonderful weight of this day the moment I stepped in the door. Sometimes, for […]

I have to confess that with a name like Edie, I knew from her mama’s very first email I was gonna like this sweetheart of a baby! Sometimes names are just a dead giveaway for greatness. She certainly did not disappoint! There is a crazy amount of personality in this girl’s tiny body. She is […]

This year, I’ve got it all taken care of because I get to look forward to photographing these two on their wedding day! God brought these two together in the cutest of ways, kicked […]

It’s my NIECE & NEPHEWS! I honestly adore all the families I photograph so much, but having my sister’s family on the blog? Next level excitement!!! Yes, they are every bit as spunky and mischievous and sweet and cute as they appear in this photo. It’s been a couple years since I last photographed these […]

This sweet girl’s sunny and inquisitive personality is contagious. She seems to always be thinking and determining […]

My time with this crew was far too short. I miss these college friends of mine so much, but even if it’s just for an hour, it sure is fun to see them parent these three awesome kiddos! I’ve spent photo time with both big sisters, but this was the first time I’ve photographed little […]

I looooooove my […]

We’re kicking this session off with one child making fart noises on his arm while his big sister laughs hysterically – buckle up, it’s a good one! But seriously, this family is not just beautiful, they are stunning. Last time I saw them was taking Eli’s newborn photos! I loved catching up with them. These […]

Eight! This is the eighth time I’ve photographed this family. Eight??! These four have my heart, and watching their family grow and enter brave new stages makes me want to explode with happiness. Part one of why I love them: Chris and Zeljka’s sense of humor with one another and life in general. They are […]

Look how much she’s changed since her newborn session in June!! This blue-eyed girl is three months old, and full of curiosity that manifests itself in her expressive eyebrows. Big […]

It is ALWAYS a wonderful day when I get to have a little of this family in it. They are sunshine and magic and laughter – who doesn’t need a little of that each day? Both Alyvia and Brooklyn are chomping at the bit to grow up. They are (were?) amazing as little ones and […]

This is Ben. Everybody say, “Hiiiii, Ben!” He is ready to graduate this spring! We ran around taking his senior photos the other night, and I came away so impressed by him. He is quiet, confident, direct, poised and thoughtful. I don’t get to hang out with a lot of seniors, but if the world […]

It was so heart-warming to hang out with this crew. Liam has every one of the adults in these photos wrapped around his little finger, and he so deserves all their attention. He’s a wild heart with the most adorable grin, and he was so much fun to photograph. See? He’s the star. Caitlin’s parents […]

Say hello to Kennex! He’s excited to be here! If you missed it (gosh, I hope not!), there are photos of his first day in the world here. Stop, go shed tears of happiness over his cuteness, then come back and resume the second dose below. 😀 I love both these images. He is such […]

Baby Kennex is here! He has been here a few weeks, actually, and these photos are from his very first hours. What a sacred place to be – in this room, seeing first breaths, witnessing first meetings with a sister and grandparents – it’s something to cherish. I had planned to share just a few […]

It just doesn’t seem possible for Henrietta to be turning one already! I could not wait to see this little bug again. She is so darn cute, so fierce, and so into her parents (for obvious reasons). I’d hang out with this crew any day of the week. 🙂 Sasha is the best photo-bombing dog […]
