One Year Session at The Studio at Fountain City I have photographed Andersyn since she was in her momma’s belly. I’ve watched this sweet angel baby grow and grow, and now, she is turning one. It is hard to believe. All of her sessions have been adorable, but I think this one takes the cake […]

Newborn Session with Liam I was welcomed into the Ensworth home last week to photograph sweet little Liam’s newborn session. This baby, ya’ll. He was a complete and total angel.
