Grow with me.

I've grown with them.

The "O" Family.

I first started photographing this family when their oldest was a chunk of 4 months old.  The friendship grew from there.  I have watched this family grow in the most beautiful ways.  While adding another precious baby girl to the clan, to adjusting to 2 babes under 2, to admiring how their beautiful girls grow by leaps and bounds and hit every special milestone.  

The best part?

I've photographed the steps. (The reality of this makes me all emotional and stuff.)

This was a grow with me session to document their seconds 3 month birthday.  We met up while they were camping (for real) and made an interactive photo session out of their trip.

Enjoy!

Our Orchard.

It's our beloved place where fruits grow from trees that were donated to our family in memory of my brother.  Our orchard is now three years old and it's bearing fruits in the most gorgeous ways.  The fruit is sweet and juicy, the leaves are a magical color of green, and the light flows through each leaf and branch in the most magical way.  It's one of my favorite places to photograph my children.  It's peaceful, comfortable, and it's a place that I can feel my brothers presence.  In this same spot is where my brother and me would play throughout our childhood.  Now it's my kids turn.

My Blake

My middle, my 4 year old.  My soft soul, free spirited, gentle girl.  She would snuggle all day, every day if I allowed her to.  I dedicate this blog post to her, because I am thankful for being hers and I want to pour her beauty into you.

Enjoy.

PS: I snuck in a few of our baby Skyler, because... she's cute, too.

Little man Hadley turns ONE!

I photographed this little mans birth.  It's a day I won't forget- pregnant myself and getting called at 3am that mama is in labor.  I was so excited to witness another common miracle.  The day was gorgeous, the birth was magical, and baby Luke was welcomed with so much love.  

Now he's ONE.  I have such a connection with the families that stick with me from birth on.  They turn into cherished friends! 

Thank you to the Hadley family for picking ME to document such beautiful moments of your families life.  I am honored!

Happy birthday, Luke!  

I cannot wait to watch you grow even MORE!

Now enjoy yourself as you scroll through these drool worthy images.  This family is literally picture perfect.

Happy BIRTHday, baby K!

Baby K was born on a beautiful, sunny day.  The weather was a perfect 80 degrees, there was a slight breeze, and the sun was sending down the most perfect rays.  It was her day, the day it would be made her BIRTHday.

Click play to watch the magic.

Enjoy!

 

I'm so excited to offer story telling videos to my sessions! Please inquire if you're interested in adding one onto your package!

Mommy & Me Collaboration

Every moment of this collaboration session was a dream.  The Mom's looked gorgeous, the kids were on point with their cute outfits, and everyone was happy as can be (no, seriously! Even the kids.)

I had a wild idea and a stunning vision to collaborate with local vendors in order to embrace Motherhood (Since it's a scary hood to travel through), capture Mommy & Me bonds, and support small businesses.  

I shared my idea, found the awesomely talented vendors, and turned my dream into reality.

Hi!

I am so excited to announce my newest blogging platform. Want to know what I love about it the most? It's connected to my website! I'm doing everything I can to make things easier for you to view my content.  Please be patient with me while I add all the good stuff for you.

I had a beautiful maternity session last night. This family is to die for! They have been incredibly sweet and invited me into their lives when their little girl was a newborn. They haven't been able to ditch me yet (HA!).

I don't think there's any better way to introduce my new blog then to share these images with you guys. Love what you see? COMMENT! I love your encouragement & sweet words.
