If you’re on Pinterest at all, you’ve probably noticed two different trends in newborn photography lately. One of them is more posed and the other more natural/organic. For the client, the style you choose is really a matter of preference. What’s important, though, is doing your homework to see what type of style photographers market […]

Can I say that I am loving the neutral wall colors that are so trendy these days? They never fail to give me the perfect lighting scenario for my Lifestyle Newborn sessions. Bring on more gray! I was so impressed with this Boho Chic nursery with all the blue touches for this baby boy. Mom […]

Once in a while you’ll get a family who can become their true selves in front of you. This, friends, makes for some awesome memories. If you can show up and put aside whatever mess is going on in your life, whatever tantrum your toddler(s) had while you were dressing and getting them in and […]

I’ve said it before, but first time parents are the sweetest to watch with their new child. There is no handbook or manual to teach us how to do this, but somehow instincts always kick in and mom & dad become naturals at caring and loving for their newborn. Maybe it’s because there aren’t other […]

The day started at the bride’s parents’ house, and I couldn’t think of a better way to begin the best day of your life. Their home was so warm and inviting, bustling with friends and family enjoying coffee and breakfast while the girls had their hair and make-up done. With the fire going and the […]

You’ll notice that basically the first half of my blog images here are of these two sisters just having a fantastic time. While mom was nursing and getting the newborn ready for photos, we had some time to jump on the bed and laugh hysterically at dad. These instantly became some of my favorite images […]

The last time these two were in front of my camera was for their engagement photos three Septembers ago! Well, this September, we were joined by a baby bump. What an honor to see them go from giggly almost newly-weds to excited almost parents. They were just as sweet and genuine as they were a […]

This week is the official start of the fall season! Autumn is my absolute favorite. What’s not to love? Pumpkin spice, apple picking, pecan pies, cozy sweaters, boots, football, Halloween, Thanksgiving, foliage, cider, crisp air…it’s wonderful. New season = new reason to decorate a table, which I’m always down for. This table is a little […]

I’ve been anxiously awaiting fall portrait sessions all summer! It’s my busiest time of year, but it’s worth it to meet so many new families and see my returning families with littles who have grown. I had a great fall kick-off with this sweet family of three! Although it was still early September, there was […]
