Happy First Birthday Charlie
Happy first birthday Charlie! You only turn one once and Charlie was very serious about it at first. He was intrigued by my camera and studio lighting and oh goodness Mr. Teddy Bear (he was all about moving the teddy as soon as I re positioned him lol) but wouldn't crack a smile, but with some work, silly noises, help from his auntie, and of course smashing his cake she decided that getting his photos taken was pretty fun! I don't often shoot against my brown photo backdrop b
The Wight Family
I first met the Wight boys when their mama brought them to me for a 4th of July mini photo session. They are the sweetest and I just love their bright blonde hair. This time the Wight family booked another photo session with me for their family Christmas photos at Northwest Community Park. The entire family is so photogenic and they make my job so easy! Thank you to the Wight family for choosing me to be your family photographer. I look forward to any future photography sessi
Such a beautiful addition
Say hello to sweet baby girl Lauren. At 24 days "old" she was one of the oldest newborns I have worked with. No worries though because even if a baby if outside of the ideal 4-14 day old age range beautiful newborn photos are possible. Miss Lauren did give me a run for my money at times though. If she wasn't wrapped up snug she just wanted to be held by her mama, Marissa. Lauren is Marissa's first biological baby, but Marissa does have two absolutely wonderful bonus babies wh
They look like out of a magazine
This is the Hughes family. Kristi took advantage of the Fall mini photo sessions I have yearly and booked a family photoshoot at Northwest Community Park. When they first showed up I was in awe with not only how good looking the entire family is, but with how well their outfits were coordinated. Kristi did an amazing job putting everything together. Not going to lie, sometimes family photoshoots can be a little hectic with multiple children. Especially younger children. This
She was an angel!
Baby girl Lliana came to my studio when she was 10 days old for her newborn photoshoot. Due to her mama having another appointment I knew I wouldn't have as much time to work with and pose her so I was praying she was going to be very sleepy so that I could pose her easily and in a timely manner. With such relief Lliana was an angel! She was so sleepy her entire session and let me mold an pose her any which way I wanted. Her mama really wanted to make sure that we got family
The Leschisin Family is one of the great families who booked a fall mini photography session with me. It was chilly and breezy on the day go the photoshoot, but they toughed it out like champs! I first met this wonderful family when Allyssa was pregnant with baby Clark for her maternity photos last year. Since then I have now done 4 photoshoots for the Leschisins. They are so kind and easy going and I have loved watching Clark grow through his first year and accomplish all of
All she wanted was snuggles.
Sweet Sweet Dylen and her twin older brother and sister came to my studio this last weekend for her newborn photoshoot. She was a whole 11 days new when at the time of her session and was born at albs 10oz. Y'all she was the cutest squish with the most adorable baby cheeks! We started the photo session with sibling shots so that way her brother and sister could go play in my attached studio play room. They both thought their newborn baby sister was pretty awesome and loved he
She reminds me of Princess Belle
I first met Shannon on a local military wives page on Facebook. Her husband is Navy, mine Army. We planned on her wearing a few of my gowns for a mini maternity photo session. From the moment I met her and her husband at beginning of the session taking place at Northwest Community Park I adored them. Our personalities just clicked. She does some photography on the side so that gave us even more a little bit in common as well. From start to finish we were all just laughing at
