Introducing Cecelia

Cecelia is new around here and is just about as cute as they come! Congratulations Dan and Jill!

I just love these shots of Dan holding her! It was hard to pick a favorite.







Dan & Jill + 1!

Jill and Dan are, quite literally, some of the nicest people I've ever met. In fact, before we had even met, they brought a meal to us after Nola was born. Dan was working with Bobby at the time and told his sweet wife that a new mom needed a meal... and she provided a delicious one! I was thrilled when I found out they were expecting a little girl.

I have to say (and maybe I've said it before) ... maternity sessions are probably my favorite kind of session. There is just so much joy wrapped up in the anticipation of a baby coming and it's joy to me to get to capture that for people, especially people I already care about and love!

I was blessed to do a newborn session with this new family of three as well, so you'll be seeing more of them and the beautiful Cecelia soon. In the meantime, a (not so little) preview...







Nora is One!

One of my favorite parts about my job as a photographer is spending time with my clients. I really enjoy hearing people's stories of how they met or where they live, so I loved getting to know Trina and her husband, Charles, and of course their precious daughter, Nora. Trina is Trisha's identical twin sister, so it was really fun to meet her after knowing Trisha for a while. I think I would definitely have trouble telling them apart - I didn't get to see them together, but their looks, mannerisms and voices are so similar! What fun.

Here is a little preview from our session - you are a beautiful family and I hope we get to do this again sometime! Thanks for driving all the way to Columbus! :)


Graham is One!

We are so excited to celebrate Graham's first birthday in just a few weeks with our sweet friends, Leslie and Craig. You might remember I did maternity pictures for them, and now this cute boy has been charming us all for almost a year... I can't believe how fast the time goes.
Here's a quick preview!


More previews coming soon... I'm up to my ears in post-processing! :)



Kim & Ryan + 1

Our friends Kim and Ryan are expecting their daughter, Kennedy, any day now. I was blessed to do some maternity photos for them, and I've got to say - it was probably one of the easiest shoots I've ever done. They are so photogenic, and it was relaxing and fun to spend time with them.

I can't wait to meet Kennedy, and I'm praying for a speedy (and SOON) labor for you, Kim. Much love!!


Shane + Samantha

A little preview for Shane and Samantha...

A big THANK YOU goes to Jason of Jason Allender Photography for shooting these and allowing me to edit, and also to this awesome couple who was flexible and friendly and just great all around.
Many blessings on your new life together!




Playing Catch Up!

It's been a wonderful and BUSY summer. Bobby has been working hard on his classes for his MBA, and Nola and I have been working hard on some projects around the house and taking lots of photos! I haven't updated the old blog too frequently, but I've had opportunity to get some great shots and spend time with some fun (and beautiful!) people.

Here are a few collages of shoots I did this summer ...

 Some graduation pictures of Jordan. Can't believe he's in college!

Aurora's first birthday and family pictures for the Seases - such a gorgeous family!

Some family photos of the Turners. I could NOT get over this little guy's rolls. He is too precious, and his parents are so sweet as well!

There are more on the way... a first birthday party, a wedding, and some more maternity photos. PLUS - mini-shoots are just a couple weeks away, and I've got a couple shoots in between now and then! I'm a busy girl these days, and I'm editing up a storm (I'm surprised my computer hasn't started smoking). Check back soon for more images.

I have just a couple slots left in my mini-shoot coming up in a few weeks. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for some gorgeous fall weather and colorful leaves. Let me know if you'd like to take one of the slots I still have left or if you'd like to schedule a full shoot sometime before we head into cold weather! :) Hope to hear from you soon!
