How gorgeous is this little man and his parents? He has some of the most killer eyelashes I've ever seen and had such a laid back personality! I love all of his different expressions! He was born on Valentine's Day, so of course we had to throw in some Valentine's props. Welcome to the world, sweet Thivian. I can't wait to see you again in a couple of months!
I absolutely loved working with this little cutie and his sweet brother and mommy! They are the most gorgeous little family and you can see the love they have for each other. Ezekiel, Malachi's older brother, was super cooperative to only be a toddler. He found a favorite toy at the studio (an old-school toy phone) and wanted me to "answer" the phone the whole time. Haha! He was too cute!
Mr. Elliot could not have been any cuter for his 1-year photo session! It seems like yesterday I was shooting his mom and dad's maternity session and then his newborn session. This year has flown by and he has gotten so big! It was so much fun capturing his first year. It's such an honor when families trust me with these priceless memories! You just can't get these moments back, so make sure to have them captured while you can!
As much as I love photographing little ones, it can be a refreshing change of pace to photograph older kids and teens! I'm glad to now be adding high school senior portraits back to the list of services I offer. I was so glad Jace's mom had me capture these photos for him to kick off his big senior year. Can you say future model material? I hope he has the best year ever and many blessings in his life!
It was such a pleasure meeting sweet Olivia and her beautiful family! Her family has waited a long time to be able to welcome a baby girl and they are over the moon in love. She was wide awake for a good bit of her newborn session and sound asleep for the rest of it! It's always nice to capture a few awake shots as well as the sleepy ones. A lot of parents seem to gravitate towards the awake shots.
Here is one of my favorite families at one of my favorites venues, the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum! These adorable twins love trains, so it was the perfect spot for their family's fall photos this year. If I had to describe this family with just a couple of words, it would be "pure joy." Their smiles and laughter are always so genuine and the love they have for one another comes across in every photo session I've done for them. They make my job so much fun and I get so excited about photo sessions like this one!
I had so much fun doing this session for Raelynn, Claire and their beautiful mommy! I always love working with this family.
Originally she wanted to do the photo session in a rustic field with tall grass, but at the last minute she said she liked the creek look, and I just so happened to know of the perfect spot! The sunlight just before sunset was so magical coming in through the tress and dancing on the water. I love that with my job I'm always getting to do something new and creative such as scouting for new, magical locations for photo sessions.
Baby Huck is so cute I can hardly stand it! Have you ever seen such pinchable cheeks in your life? He was a newborn photographer's dream. He had it all: squishy cheeks, beautiful skin and loved to sleep. What more could you ask for? Less than 2 years ago I did his big sister's newborn session and she was just as cute and chunky. I was so glad to get to do his newborn session too!
It was so great getting to see Campbell and her family again and to see how much she's grown in the past 7 months! I always count it as an honor to capture these moments and I don't take it lightly that families entrust me with their memories. I've featured a few highlights from both her newborn session and her 7-month session since I wasn't able to post any of her newborn photos until her adoption was complete. I can only imagine what it must feel like to wait for so long to have your child in your arms and to finally get the call out of the blue that has has just been born. I asked her mom to share a little about how their experience and the emotions that came with it.
"We received the call on a Sunday to go to hospital to get our baby. She was 5 days old and we were so excited. I literally felt as if I were floating as the nurse handed her to us. The minute our eyes met was indescribable and something rushed through my body I’ve never felt before. It was instant love & our hearts were immediately complete. God blessed us with the most precious baby and we get to watch her grow everyday as we begin this beautiful journey as a family of three."
I absolutely love how Clara's newborn session turned out! She was just a wee 5 days old at her session. She and her family were so nice to work with. It took a little while (ok, a few hours) to get big brother on board, but I was determined to get that sibling shot! Toddlers can be tricky sometimes. When Clara's mom first contacted me about doing her newborn session I was so pumped. I knew who she was right away because I've been a fan of her music and her violin skills for years. (Check out her amazing work at nordikfire.com.) One creative person working for another can sometimes be a little nerve-racking because you don't know what kind of expectations they might have. But they just let me do my thing and they were thrilled with the results. I work so hard doing what I do and I pour my heart and soul into it so it means the world to me when clients love their photos and are appreciative for everything that goes into it. I'm grateful I got to meet this family and capture these memories for them.
