Maggie | A Birth Story

Yesterday was... amazing. 
It was my first time photographing a birth and I absolutely loved it. 
This particular couple made the experience that much more amazing. Chris and April (already parents to 2 boys) had been hoping and praying for another baby for quite some time. Naturally, when they announced their pregnancy their friends and family all secretly (or maybe not so secretly) hoped to hear that the baby was a girl.  Chris and April decided to wait, and not find out the sex of the baby until delivery. We were all (myself included) overjoyed when little miss Maggie was born! What a privilege it was for me to be present and observe the miracle of her birth. Chris and April, I cannot thank you enough for inviting me to participate in this monumental day of your lives. It was truly an honor.

I'd encourage you to watch Maggie's Birth Story video which really tells the story so beautifully.

Harper | 6 month portraits

I LOVE photographing newborns, but I gotta tell ya that 6 month olds are becoming a very close second.  This particular 6 month old was so go-with-the-flow, especially considering the temperature outside was over 95 degrees! Her mom, Christy, was so great to work with as well. She came with lots of outfit changes, headbands and props. It was awesome! :)

Delaney | Newborn

Little miss Delaney was so sweet and so easy to work with. She was visiting from Maryland on the day of our session, at just 11 days old. Her parents had no intention to be in any of the photos, but at the end decided to give it a try- I'm so glad they did. They were naturals in front of the camera... even their dog knew just what to do :)  Delaney's family was so much fun! There was a lot of laughter towards the end which just makes my job that much more enjoyable. Congratulations Sean and Becky! And best wishes to you and your family as you enter this new chapter. :)

Cassidy | Newborn

Allow me to introduce baby Cassidy. Her mother and I were best friends way back in high school. This session was especially fun for me as I got to photograph this adorable little girl while catching up with an old friend. :)  Cassidy was 6 days old on the day of our session and was cute as can be. Her big sister was just as adorable and has the cutest little voice! Thanks again Adam and Vikki. It was a privilege to photograph your family!

Deacon | Newborn

Baby Deacon was the youngest newborn I have photographed to date. This adorable little man was only 3 days old on the day of his session. And boy was he easy! He let me pose him any way I wanted and took only 1 break to eat. A real trooper. His natural mohawk is pretty awesome too. :)
Thank you Kyle and Faith for the honor of photographing your newest little one!
