Tomorrow is a big day for me. I am headed out of town tomorrow morning with some ladies from church to the Gospel Coalition Women’s Conference and we won’t be back until Sunday. This is not the first time I have been to something like this, and is not why it’s a big day…. it’s because this will be the first time I am leaving Oliver for more than a night. FOUR days seems like such a long time! But I know this is good for me and Oli will be fine, which is why I haven’t backed out yet. Let’s just hope that we can get down the road without me completely breaking down. Whew… Is anyone else out there going to the conference? If not, you can watch the talks online if you are interested by clicking here.

But before I go, I wanted to share the most precious little girl in the world with you. Introducing Charlotte Lucille McClellan. Charlotte is the daughter of someone very special to me, Laurin. God brought Laurin into my life many many years ago but we didn’t really get to know each other until last year. It has been such a joy getting close with her and she is such a fantastic mama to Little Charlotte, as these images so clearly display.

It’s amazing how just a touch from mommy makes everything okay.

I can’t believe it has been a year since we met Tim and Jessica. We knew from the first day we walked into the same birthing class with these two that we’d be friends. And we were. I got the chance to photograph sweet Lily’s Newborn Session and now she is almost a year old! I can’t believe how fast time flies.

Tim and Jessica have such a passion for parenting as you will see so clearly in these pictures. Their precious girl is so blessed to be loved by these two.


Sorry it has taken me so long to get the 2nd half of Dayna and Mike’s wedding posted! Being pregnant with a 10 month old can be crazy at times… But I think you will find these images were worth the wait.

Thank you Dayna & Mike for such a wonderful day. I know you will have a long and happy marriage!

Love this of the bridesmaids with Mike. Hilarious!

We got some time alone with the bride and groom after their send off. That was truly priceless! Such great shots of the two of them together!


We are headed out of town this morning, but before I go…. Meet Dayna & Mike.

Dayna and Mike are one of the nicest couples I have ever worked with! It was such a joy to photograph their sweet wedding here in Charlotte. Once we met Dayna and Mike’s family, everything made sense. I love shooting weddings where the family feels like my own and that was definitely the case here.

Stay tuned the first of the week for Part II of this gorgeous day!

The bride putting her dress on is one of my favorite parts!

Mike gave Dayna a journal he had been writing to her for years. He started it very soon after they began dating. It was the sweetest pre-wedding gift I have ever seen.

As promised, here is what’s to come in the coming days and weeks!

Three days, one newborn session, one family session, two weddings… makes for one tired pregnant photographer. And one baby who is getting lots of cuddles on this Monday.

With all the sessions I have been shooting lately, it is hard to beleive there was time to fit in a session with me in FRONT of the camera. Thanks to the lovely fellow photographer but more importantly FRIEND, Cheyenne Schultz of The Schultzes, I was able to finally get some real life head shots taken. She was so gracious to make this happen before I blow up like a whale (again). Here are a few of my favorite shots!

Make sure to click around the website to see these new shots, as well as some other updates and changes!

Stay tuned tomorrow for an extra long sneak peek and Dayna & Mikes Wedding coming at the end of the week!
