Kim and Brandon

I don't even know where to begin! This session was... amazing! Kim Davis is a friend of mine and I was thrilled to do a photo swap with her. She and Brandon took some (AMAZING) photos of my husband and myself and I absolutely adore them (check them out!) Now I am so excited to share the photos that I took of them.... 

When I woke up on the morning of the shoot, I opened my window and saw thick fog. My first thought was "uh oh!" and my second thought was... "we got to get out there and take pictures now!" I am so glad things worked out the way they did! The fog was awesome and the pictures wouldn't be the same without it :)

Did I mention how much fun we had? I loved every second of this session. After a long fall season (that has been great!) I have started to feel my creativity run dry... if that makes sense. Shooting with Kim and Brandon gave me the creative boost that I needed. It was fun to see their perspective on things and to get some new ideas. Thanks you guys, we should definitely do this again... soon!

Okay... enough talk... you've got to see these photos :)

The location was great... old white shack? Oh yeah. 

Love this... definitely a favorite...

Kim brought this quilt, it was just perfect... I love these...

Oh another favorite... 

Isn't the fog just perfect? Love these... 

Kim and Brandon, I can't thank you enough!

Jared, Maryle, Evan, Holly, and Nick

This session was fun for so many reasons... new location, great weather, fun in the leaves, cute kids, and a sweet family. I am finding that I learn more and more with each session. With this session and the last both families had three kids. Learning to find ways to keep them all happy, smiling and looking at the camera has been so good for me! It was a challenge but we got some great photos.

These kids were full of great smiles :)

These next two I just love...

I love this photo in black and white :)

I am so glad I was able to squeeze this session in before the weather got cold. It was such a nice day :) Thanks Maryle and Jared!

Ricky, Melissa, Dylan, Lauren, and Ethan

My very first newborn photo session was with cute little Ethan. I can't believe how much Ethan has changed (take a look for yourself!). I still love the photos from his newborn session and now he is 8 months old and still just as cute. This time around I was able to take photos of the whole family :) Melissa is a good friend of mine and so of course we had a great time during this session. We took these photos just before sunset so we were basically chasing the sun... we had to finish before we had no light! I am so glad we chose this time though, the light was perfect...

I am so in love with this photo! Her smile is so sweet and natural. The sparkle in her eyes just completes it...

Yeay for baby smiles! I love this....

Cute family, huh? 

I am loving all these fall family sessions! Thanks Melissa :)

Travis, Dawn and Malachi

I tend to be quiet at photo sessions. That is just who I am, I guess. I like to sit back and watch people. I like to watch them interact. I think that is why I like lifestyle photography so much. As the photographer I can silently watch families interact and create photographs from what I see. This worked well in this session. With little direction from me this sweet family just had a great time with each other. I love the moments caught on camera. The love that Travis and Dawn have for their little boy is just amazing.

 This little guy was just perfect! I loved the smiles he would give me, this age is so fun! His dimples won me over completely :)

Again... the dimples...

This one is my favorite of Dawn and Travis...

It was a cold morning but the colors were beautiful! I am going to miss the fall so much.

I cannot thank you two enough for this session! I had a great time!

Fly Away

It has been awhile since I have entered into a iheartfaces photo contest. When I saw the challenge for the week I thought it would be a good idea to take a break from my busy week to enter this photo.... One of my favorites of my son....

He loves to pretend to fly... he has such a great imagination. Oh to be a kid again! I have a whole series of these photos that I will always love.

Head on over to iheartfaces and check out more silhouette photographs... what a fun challenge!

I'm Booked!

It has been a busy fall! I am now booked through the end of November and I will not be scheduling sessions in December. I will start scheduling family sessions again next spring. I will be available to do maternity, newborn and baby sessions starting in January.

I also wanted to thank all the wonderful families that I have had sessions with this year. I have enjoyed each session and I have met so many great people! Thank you for allowing me to take your photos and have the opportunity to get to know you. You are all wonderful! I am excited for a new year and new opportunities to meet new people.


I love, love, love doing newborn sessions! They are a challenge in their own little way, but so worth it in the end. I am so happy with these photos, especially with the first one :) I will definitely have to *try* to recreate this photo if I have another baby...

This is baby Elise, isn't she adorable? She was about two weeks old when I took these photos.

We had a hard time getting Elise to fall asleep AND stay asleep :) The photo below makes me laugh... she couldn't keep her eyes closed very long!

We were able to get her to sleep just long enough to get some photos of her sleeping. There is something about watching a newborn sleep... it is so peaceful :)

Elise's big brother and sister were so proud of their baby sister. They were excited to show her off to me... and I don't blame them, she is sure cute!

This is the beautiful momma, Ann. She has been such a good friend to me over the past couple of years. I am so happy for her and her family, they are sure happy to have Elise in their lives.

Congratulations Ann, your daughter is beautiful! I am so glad I was able to capture these moments for you.
