Take it from a mom who just watched her baby’s entire first year whizz by; this moment of motherhood is not nearly long enough. 365 days doesn’t seem near long enough to soak in babyhood before they’re toddling off to the next milestone. You really don’t know until you know, but it does go by […]

I’m telling you guys, I get emotional every time I watch Jamison’s newborn video! Maybe it’s the way his parents look at him.. maybe it’s the way Jamison looks back at them. There’s this shot toward the end of the video that always gets me. Jamison is gazing up at his mama as she rocks […]

Three beautiful babies under 3! What a joy to watch this chapter of life unfold for such a sweet family. I’ve had the pleasure of capturing Carter when he was a little one, then Aurelia and now Aila! Life is all stories and sippy cups and baby giggles for this crew. The older two were […]

Baby Grady is beautiful, handsome and kind of an angel! I had so much fun getting to meet him and his family this August! Grady and his family live out in the country in this gorgeous old farmhouse with a wide porch and warm walls. Before Grady even arrived on the scene, Michaela and her […]

Babies and children mean life. As much as I adore doing weddings and engagements, little ones have an intangible element that I love. It’s fun to work with subjects that can’t follow directions.

When a baby is born, a mom and a dad are born too. What a joy it is to see a family go from two people expecting to three. This is the kind of morning I live for! I loved getting to hang out with the Stropes and obsess over baby Grayson. He is seriously […]

I’ll admit, the reason for this post is that I finally have Calvin’s nursery the way I want it after 7 months! One of the things that we were really conscious of when planning his nursery was that we didn’t want to spend a lot of money putting the room together. On top of anticipating […]

Maternity portraits are like a comma, a small break in the flow, a breath before the next great adventure. Capturing the moment is a way of being present. What better moments to be captured than ones made on a golden sunset beach, and especially one so sentimental. Fran and Ross spend a lot of time […]

One of the coolest things about my job is getting to hang out with awesome people celebrating awesome things in awesome locations. Glory. Jess and Alex are the sweetest and they are looking forward to the newest addition to their family. AND, they’re not finding out the gender, which I think is so cool! I […]
