In Home Newborn Every single time Hazel wakes up in the middle of the night, I curse a little, and then, I swear off any more children in our future. It would be one thing if she couldn’t sleep through the night yet. For example, if she were an infant still. But she can, and […]

Dinosaur Newborn Session You might be thinking…wait, did I read that right? DINOSAUR?? And the answer is yes. You’ll soon see why I added that little surprising word in there, but it comes from Charleston’s big brother, Ryder. When I first came into his home, he was a little skeptical of me. He was quiet […]

In-Home Newborn Session with Edie Brown Ummm…I love this in-home newborn session for so many more reasons than just that Edie was a literal angel baby and slept magically from start to finish. First, Lauren (mama) introduced me to a new side of Blount County that I have since fallen in love with. This littler […]

3 Months Lifestyle Session I absolutely adore the fact that this little man is surrounded by 3 sisters that are totally smitten with him 24/7. This is Kairyn’s 3 months lifestyle session. I get to see this crew every 3 months, and I swear the amount of growth that happens in each child over a […]

Two Month Photos Right at the beginning of the Phase 2 opening, I had the opportunity to go to Somerset, KY to take two month photos of a sweet little girl named Hazel. There’s no way I’m forgetting her name 😉. Her parents live in Boston but her grandparents live in Somerset. Since she was […]

In Home Newborn Session I know the Parton family from church. When we joined their life group, someone else was the leader and Olivia was at one meeting before she went to have Sutton (baby #2). Fast forward several months and those leaders moved to China to be missionaries while Mitchell and Olivia took over […]

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 […]

Newborn Photos of Sarah Ruth You know, sometimes you meet people that you just click with. You can talk for 2 minutes, and you find at least 15 things you have in common. It happened this week to a couple we showed our house to. No, it’s not back on the market, but they found […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]
