Rylee is Turning One! | Kentucky Family Photographer

Close to this time last year, I was photographing this sweet girl’s newborn session! She has grown so much and I can’t get over her beautiful blond hair and big blue eyes! It has been such a treat getting to know this precious family and their story over the past year. Rylee was a special blessing in their lives and I am so honored to be the one documenting the Johnson family’s seasons.

Newborn Session | Kentucky Family Photographer

My friend, Amy Wallen Photography, invited me to her studio to photograph this precious newborn session together. We had so much fun and this little one slept soundly the ENTIRE time. Her big brother and sister are absolutely smitten and let’s be honest… we are too!

Kentucky Family Photographer | Newborn Photography

I’ve been shooting primarily weddings, couples, and lifestyle family sessions for the past three years. Funny story though- when I FIRST started out, I really wanted to be a newborn photographer! As time went on I learned to love other types of photography and kind of left the styled newborn sessions behind.

But now- I’m back at it! I’m so excited to start providing beautiful, minimalistic newborn photos highlighting the newness and sweetness of these little ones!

This week, I attended a workshop at my friend Christy Morgan Photography’s photography studio in Ironton, OH. Paige Franklin Photography taught us about posing, styling, lighting, and more! I learned SO much and I’m super excited to put what I learned into practice with my own clients.

Spring Picnic Session | Prestonsburg Kentucky Family Photographer

The Smiths are such good friends and always a treat for me to photograph! I love watching families grow- especially those so dear to my heart! What a wonderful time photographing them for the first time as a family of five!

We wanted to do something a little different than just an ordinary family session so we made it a little more fun by having a picnic. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed shooting them. OH, and Cora- I promise we’ll have another picnic soon! ;)

Reed Fall Session {Prestonsburg} | Kentucky Family Photographer

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!

Catron Family Fall Session {Camp Nathanael} | Kentucky Photographer

What a sweet time spent with the Catrons for a family session at Camp Nathanael on this crisp Fall day. Twins, Harper and Grayson, were absolutely precious! Grayson was not super into holding his sister’s hand or giving her kisses (EW!) but would you know it? I love their darling personalities and how much they’re loved by their mommy and daddy!

Spring Maternity Session | Hindman Kentucky Family Photographer

If you've looked at my work a lot, you've probably noticed that I really like pretty light. We chose to have Kara's maternity session on top of the mountain close to sunset time so that I could get that beautiful golden glow that I knew would pair so well with a beautiful glowing momma. When I saw the flowering bushes, I knew we were in the right place! 

I am so excited for this family to welcome another addition to their family. I can't wait to meet you Allie Reese!
