Front Porch Project This family is really quite something. We did their yard session before the total shut down due to COVID, and we didn’t even realize that we were really setting a trend. It’s now referred to as the front porch project (obviously kidding), but we totally did a “front porch project” session before […]

You know one thing that is so great about this quarantine? The fact that you have an excuse now to stay home and cuddle your babies. I know Morgan and Topher are really feeling that right now because they just welcomed their fourth baby and only boy into the family! You saw him last week […]

A Fresh 48 and Newborn session This blog post is going to be a little bit unique in that I combined two different sessions into one post because they happened so close together. Baby Kai was born the Friday before last. He was welcomed into the world by his parents and three sisters with a […]

Maternity Session for the Burton Family Since we photograph the Burton family in their bedroom at home for all their sessions, I really like to challenge myself to get a few different looking images every session. We have the go-to ones that we get every time so that Morgan can compare them session to session […]

Okay. Can we just talk about how GORGEOUS the children in this lifestyle session are???? Tristan and Brandon make some pretty kids. And Willow (the little girl) has the most amazing hair color I’ve ever seen and yes… it is natural. I would say Southern (oldest boy) is the ham of the family. He likes […]

Portrait Best of the Best 2019 One thing you may have noticed recently is that I am taking fewer portrait sessions from new clients. Almost every single portrait you see below has either been a past #AMPcouple, are a dear friend or family member of mine, or they are AMP family alumni (as in I […]

Lifestyle Newborn Session Okay… I LOVE this little girl’s name. I love how they spelled it, I love that it’s for a girl, I love that it’s a last name made to a first name, and I love that she can go by Andi. Andersyn is the daughter of Kari & Brad self. I photographed […]

In Home Lifestyle Session Brittany and Chase are a past wedding couple of mine. You are going to see me say that a lot because I am officially not accepting new portrait clients unless they were an #AMPcouple or are related to an #AMPcouple. The AMP wedding family has grown so much that there is […]

In-Home Lifestyle Session I did not come out the gate swinging at in-home lifestyle sessions when I began my photography career. To be totally honest, in my first couple of years of photography (2010-2011), it scared the poop out of me. I had NO idea how to shoot inside, and I didn’t have the right […]

Melton Hill Park Family Session I did this family session at Melton Hill Park for a family that is building an adoption book. An adoption book is something filled with photos of your family, has a bunch of information about your history, and shows the kind of family you are. This book is then shown […]
