I’ve been a photographer for about 5 years now, you learn A LOT of things along the way, and I’m sure the education isn’t over just because I’ve been in the business for a long time. It’s how you grow right? And make sure you don’t make those same mistakes again. Here are the top […]

Let’s do a fun year in review!! It’s amazing to me how much 2021 has flown by. Seriously, it feels like we just started the year and now here we are towards the end of it! Every year seems like they pass by faster and faster. Don’t they? Which means we need to soak up […]

This is my 3rd (?) time photographing this wonderful family. Last time I saw this crew, there was just a tiny new addition, and now, that tiny addition isn’t so tiny anymore! I think Allie picked a great time to have her family session. The trees were just at peak level for their beautiful colors […]

I always enjoy spending time with the Mills family and catching up with them at their family session. Julie suggested a new place for their family session this year, and I cannot thank her enough for this suggestion. I loved all the spots I did find in the quick couple of minutes before meeting up […]

This has got to be one of my favorite sessions of this year. I’m not just saying that. Truth be told, I was a little nervous about photographing this mama and her sweet family. Anna is a local author and I may or may not have geeked out a little too much the day she […]

Katie and I were next door neighbors almost my entire growing up years. The first year we lived in the house next to Katie and her family, we were invited to a block party. And that year, the kids put on a talent show for the adults. The only thing I remember from that day […]

Last year I met Kayleigh and her adorable family of 3 when her mama booked a session with me while they were visiting Kayleigh, Taylor and Miles from Indiana.

Allesha always books her family sessions in November with me and always has the session in June. Smart gal, because it’s hardly hot out, it’s just the right temperatures, at least in my opinion, sitting around 70-80 degrees. Never, had I thought that when we were planning her session that we would have this crazy […]

When Erika and I began planning for Autumn’s 4 year pictures she wanted to have this cute set up with a bunch of candy and rainbow and bright colors. We planned it for the end of April. It wouldn’t be too hot or too cold, we were going to borrow a fellow photog’s at home […]
