Scout is One!

 I am a mom of three kids, I have watched them all grow up so quickly.  But I am still so amazed that this tiny little baby...

can grow into such a beautiful big girl in just one year!

Scout is the first little one that I photographed for a whole year through. We had many fun photo sessions since she's been born (and even a maternity session before she was born :)). Here are all of her photos... Maternity, Newborn, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and today I am posting her one year photos :) Leslie and Kyle did an awesome job with the props and cake, everything turned out great!

And some tears...

We had planned these fun photos inside and they turned out great... but we were also excited that it was a *warm* January day (in the 50's!) so we headed outside to snap these photos with mom and dad. I am so glad it was a nice day!! (And Scout wasn't afraid to give me some adorable smiles...)

Leslie and Kyle, thank you!! This has been a fun year watching Scout grow!

About Me

I got started with photography back in 2009, taking photos of my kiddos is what got me started. I guess some would call me a "mom with a camera." The next year I started taking photos for friends and then friends of friends. The next thing I knew I was photographing family, baby and maternity sessions each month. I LOVED it and couldn't believe I had gone so far with photography in such a short time. I was learning so much and meeting awesome people along the way. It was a great experience for me.

In 2011 I was pregnant with my third baby, but I continued to do photo sessions. After my baby girl was born my plan was to keep going with my photography business, but as 2012 went by I quickly realized that things might need to slow down a little. 2012 would have to be my last year... I needed more time with my little family.

So here I am... it's 2013. My plan for the year? To continue with photography, but strictly as a hobby. I will miss my clients, and taking photos for them. I am not "quitting" as some might think, as a photographer I don't necessarily have to run a business :) I will be taking photos just as much or maybe even more than I have in the past 4 years. I have ideas for the upcoming year and so many things I want to learn and practice.

So that's my journey. How I got to the point I am at now. A little bit more about me? I am a married girl with three kiddos. I am in my late twenties enjoying every minute of it that I can. I love lifestyle photography, shooting in natural light, hanging out at home with my family, reading a good book, watching a great TV series with my husband, playing a good game of volleyball, hanging out with my friends, thrift shopping, hiking, camping and being outdoors. This year I look forward to spending my weekends with my family (whether it's at home or exploring a new place), updating our home that we recently bought and shooting a ton of photos.


I am no longer taking clients for 2013. If you have questions or would like referrals to other photographers in the area, please contact me at:
