I can’t wait for Leigh and Chadd’s wedding in a few short months! Their engagment session took place at Jenny Wiley Lodge in Prestonsburg, Kentucky and was one of the warmer days we’ve had this season. We actually had to reschedule our previous date due to bad weather- so when it turned out to be super nice we were all happy about the date change. They are SUCH an adorable couple and they even brought along their beautiful dog! Congratulations friends!
One of my favorite things is watching couples become first time parents. Having gone through this phase of life myself, I know firsthand what a transformative time it is. Women become more nurturing, more loving and men melt at the sight of their babies. Having known Brock and Rachel for a long time and seeing them interact with their nieces and nephews, I already knew what wonderful parents they would be to little Belle when she arrived. Seeing them as parents is such a special thing and I’m so thankful that they chose me to document this time in their lives as parenthood is only beginning.
The Reeds are some of my very favorite people in the whole world- and if you’ve met them, you know why! Amy and Sam are incredible parents and just all around wonderful people. Isla is THE cutest little spunky girl and I adore her! I could not be more honored that they trust me to document seasons of life in their sweet, sweet family!
It’s always wonderful to spend time with these special people! They exude love both inwardly toward their own family and outwardly to their friends and community. Their friendship has been a blessing to me for a long time as I know they have been to so many. It was a joy to photograph them for the second time! Enjoy their sweet gallery!
It was SO wonderful to meet these precious girls and their parents on the first day of Fall! Camp Nathanael is a beautiful campus and it truly felt like Fall with leaves on the ground and a slight drizzle. Harper and Saylor are two of the SWEETEST sisters. I loved how Harper took such gentle care of Saylor. She kissed her cheeks unprompted and giggled at how adorable her sis was throughout this family session! Saylor is such a happy 5 month old. I loved hearing her coo and seeing her smile at her mom and dad as they lovingly spoke to her during photos. These girls have such a special bond that I know will only strengthen and grow as they do!
The Howards are such a special family to me! I absolutely fell in love with Brittany and her boys last year during my Celebrating Motherhood sessions. It was so wonderful to meet Matt as well this time for their family session, and photograph everyone together at Camp Nathanael in Hindman Kentucky! Graham and Grayson are the sweetest boys EVER. I love Grayson's curiosity and Graham always keeps me laughing! Brittany and Matt are wonderful parents who guide their boys so gently. What a sweet time documenting their love and connection on this warm Summer evening.
First time parenthood is such a beautiful season. Our lives are changed forever in a very good way. When this family first reached out to me about their newborn session, through teary eyes I read just how life changing and special this photo session would be for them. Jason and Vanessa waited a long time for sweet Rylee. She is truly a blessing, a miracle, and could not be more perfect!
