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 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 […]

Lifestyle Newborn Session Emily and Brit just went from being parents of one to parents of two. At their lifestyle newborn session, the first thing I asked Emily was so how crazy is it really??? as I am also about to enter that phase of life. So far so good was her initial response.
