Dotson Family Photos | Eastern Kentucky Photographer

I’m so glad that I had the privilege of working with this wonderful family again! I’ve gotten to know them really well over the past few years. We photographed a styled elopement shoot with Zach and Bri, and Baleigh and Bristol’s Whitesburg wedding this past Fall! They have such a sweet family bond and are just as beautiful on the inside as on the outside.

All of the ladies’ lovely dresses are from Bri and Baleigh’s Clothing Store, WORTH Boutique located in Whitesburg, KY.

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!

Prestonsburg Fresh 48 Session | Kentucky Newborn Photographer

It was such a special time photographing the Combs as they welcomed their newborn baby girl and became a family of three! I’ve known Chris and Elizabeth for a long time and they are great friends. I actually photographed their wedding several years ago- so it was such a joy to be there and photograph this next step in their family’s lives.

As I walked into Highlands Medical Center for their Fresh 48 session, they were both just beaming. Scroll through, and you’ll know exactly why. Congratulations friends!

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! ;)

Fall Sunset Family Session | Hindman Kentucky Photographer

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.

Camp Nathanael Fall Sibling Session {Hindman} | Kentucky Family Photographer

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!

Lenora's Celebrating Motherhood Session | Eastern Kentucky Family Photographer

When Lenora contacted me about photographing a Celebrating Motherhood session with her two foster (soon to be adopted!) children and grandchild around her childhood home, I knew right away that it would be VERY special. I was right. Lenora talked with me a bit about her story and how fostering has been a light in the dark for her and it shows through her warmth and love toward her sweet boys. All three of her little ones adore her and I can see why! She is such a strong, caring, and amazing person. Our short time together was such a memorable one!

The time we spent re-visitng memories made in this place will live on through these photos and I'm sure she will have lots of stories to tell her babies and grand babies when they look back at these images together. 

Ashlee's Celebrating Motherhood Session | Hindman Kentucky Family Photographer

I simply could not love this family more! If there was ever an example of motherhood worth celebrating, this is it. Ashlee has been a precious example of motherhood to me. She continually encourages me with her capacity to love selflessly and patiently. She has waited faithfully for the adoption of two of her children and it is a joy to see them thriving and being loved so deeply. Aside from that, she is a precious friend and it was so special for me to be able to photograph this season of motherhood for her.
