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.

In-Home Family Session with the Napiers | Film Photography | Kentucky Lifestyle Photographer

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?!

Festive In-Home Family Session with the Gilleys | Kentucky Lifestyle Photographer

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.

In-Home Family Christmas Session | Hindman Kentucky Photographer

What a sweet little in-home Christmas session with the Napiers! Their lovely house near Hazard Kentucky was so festive and cute, their kids precious, and just a beautiful family! I LOVE in-home sessions and this was no exception. I know their kids will treasure these photos taken in the same home they have and will continue to celebrate the season in for years to come.

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!

Lifestyle Newborn Photographer | Hindman Kentucky Family Session

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's Gotcha Day | Kentucky Family Photographer

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!

Lifestyle Newborn Session {Hindman Kentucky} | Knott County Family Photographer

Welcome sweet baby Noah! I love in home sessions, especially for newborns! The whole family can relax and what better place to document first memories than in the home? 

Noah was an absolute little angel and barely made a peep the whole session. His big brother and sister are smitten and he is adored by his momma and daddy. He is going to grow up surrounded by SO much love.

I'm so thankful to have been there to photograph this precious and fleeting season for the Cornett family!
