Winter sessions and weddings have been such a JOY this year with our mild 60-70 degree weather. Here’s a peek at what’s to come in the next few weeks!

Baby Bump :: Julie & Jeremy

Just Married! :: Hilary & Thomas

Newborn Love :: Baby Liam

Just Married :: Manda & Blake


I have recently had the opportunity to shoot more and more newborn sessions and to say that I LOVE shooting them would be a gross understatement. I love everything about being around a tee-tiny baby only days old.  Holding them in my arms, smelling their sweet smells, and experiencing the joy and excitement of the new mom and dad. I even like the challenge of getting the baby nice and sleepy and in position. This is why I love my job. I get to be apart of such intimate and special moments.

This was the feeling I got when I arrived at ILeana’s home… There was just so much joy over her arrival . As you can see, this baby girl was not hard to photograph at all… Such a cutie from the day she was born.

Told ya! (For those of you who didn’t link through Facebook, I was just sharing how GORGEOUS Christina is.)

Christina and Ryan’s baby girl, Tinley is due in just a couple weeks and I know they are on the edge of their seats waiting to meet her. We had such a great time at their baby bump session. After shooting at our first location, we decided to head over to the Panther Stadium for some shots since Christina and Ryan are huge Panther fans. Thanks so much you two for allowing me to capture such a special time in your lives. I can’t wait to meet sweet Tinley!

There was just something about my shoot with Dayna and Mike….. As I was culling through the images, I felt to compelled to keep. keep. keep… Maybe it was Dayna’s contagious smile or the sweet demeanor that these two gave off, but I had SUCH a great time shooting their engagement session! We decided to do the shoot at the Billy Graham Library where Mike popped the question. This was such a great location for a cool winter shoot. The style of the library paired with Dayna & Mike’s adorable jackets and hats went together perfectly!

I had the hardest time picking favorites so your will see more shots than usual:). Dayna & Mike, I’m SO looking forward to spending more time with you at your wedding in April!

I love this…. Looks so vintage to me.

It is always so special to me when I get to photograph a client more than one time. I did Dashelle’s Baby Bump session when she was pregnant with baby Preston, so getting to know him was such a joy. I always love spending time with Dashelle & Boo who are two of the nicest people ever. We planned a sweet family session with a little Christmas theme and I love the way it turned out.

I love Part II of Brent and Angela’s Wedding just as much as Part I. The Peninsula Club offered so many fun places for portraits and Brent and Angela’s reception was so fun! The kids especially enjoyed all the gifts in their goody bags. The glasses you’ll see were so fun to capture! Enjoy…


Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE outside weddings? Specifically outside weddings in PERFECT November weather under a tent with PERFECT light? Well, I do. And this is what I got when I arrived at Brent and Angela’s gorgeous Peninsula Club wedding. This combined with Angela’s bubbly personality and Brent’s love for his bride made for the perfect day.

Thank you Brent and Angela for letting us be apart of your day. I know you two are going to be SO happy together!

Stay tuned this weekend for Part II of this lovely wedding!
