Look at this big, bad one year old! (Well, almost!) Tripp has so sweet for me this morning for his cake smash, and I can’t believe he’s an entire year old! His parents had an actual cookie cake made by Simply Cakes by Ellie and it was delicious chocolate chip cookies, stuck together with yummy […]

Newborns are becoming my passion secondary to intimate elopements! Take a look at her highlights below! I […]

Take a look at some of my favorite maternity sessions!



August 24, 2020

In my mind, I was picturing soft, adventurous, romantic, quiet… and I think we pulled it off. These two are clients and friends of mine, and since finding out Shelby and Devin were expecting their second baby, I knew a dreamy little maternity session would be perfect. I’d be craving a session that I hadn’t […]

Let’s just be honest… my seniors are killin’ it this year. They choose me to photograph this big milestone, then they turn it into a magical adventure. And that is exactly what Maddy did for her senior session. Her mama booked me a year ago for a fall 2019 session, and every single time we […]
