When it’s cold outside, take pictures inside! As I’ve said many times, in-home sessions have a very special place in my heart. I love documenting clients in the spaces where their families grow and their most treasured memories are made. In-home sessions are so casual and pressure free and just an opportunity have me there documenting you loving your people. Winter is a GREAT time to make time for this. These type of sessions go hand in hand with film photography. Can you say nostalgia?!
When Charity reached out to me about photographing their family Christmas session I knew it was going to be so fun! Her vision for the session was Vogue inspired and lovely. I absolutely love the outfit choices they went with. I mean, do they look like they’ve just walked off the red carpet or what?! We had so much fun shooting in their cozy new home and getting to know each other.
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.
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!
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!
Braxton is such a special boy! From the day he came into the Bell's home in Hindman Kentucky, everyone who met him fell in love. Over the last three years he has grown into a fun and sweet boy with an irresistible mischievous smile. He loves his scooper, tools, construction, his toy weed-eater, and made a perfect addition to the Bell family. To everyone who knows them, Braxton was already a Bell. This just made it official. I would not have missed his Gotcha Day celebration for the world! Photographing it made it even more special. Congratulations friends!
I always enjoy meeting new families, and this was no exception. I'm so glad that I was able to connect with Mara and Leyton and meet to photograph a Celebrating Motherhood session for them! Hearing the story of how they had waited and waited for these sweet baby boys (and then were blessed doubly!) made this session such a special one! Motherhood is such a precious treasure and I loved watching Mara soaking up this season with Kainen and Krew.
