One of the things that I try to do a couple of times in the off season is share some shots that either I or others have taken of us. We spent time with my sweet friend Sawyer Baird back in the fall and I love these images of our family so much. They are already on the wall in canvas form. 🙂

With wedding season being so busy this year, I did not have a lot of spots open for family sessions. I do try to make space available for my past clients that I have been able to ge to know through the years. The Sherck family is one of my favorites and it has been a joy to see their sweet boys grow. They just recently bought a home that is considered a Historic Landmark in Charlotte and they are re-doing parts while staying true to the original design of the home. Our shoot took place at their beautiful home and I love everything about how it turned out.
Enjoy this sweet family!
A few months back, I got the opportunity to do a family shoot that was not like anything I had ever done before. Erin contacted me because she wanted to do a celebration shoot. See, Erin had been diagnosed with Breast Cancer 6 years earlier when she was 33 years old and her son was only 9 months old. Our shoot was to celebrate Erin’s 5 year remission anniversary. Praise God!
This shoot was featured on Style Me Pretty a few weeks ago and there you will find more about Erin’s story in her words. Thank you Kerfien Family for allowing me to be apart of such a meaningful time in your lives. You have all touched me so much. Here are a few of my favorites from this very special shoot.
To say that Rachel and Austin’s maternity shoot turned out great would be a serious understatement. These two are beautiful people, inside and out. I love the way these images display their love for each other and their little one on the way. I got to photograph these two with their sweet baby Liam a few weeks ago and it was perfect. Stay tuned for those images in the coming weeks.
This fall I got the opportunity to photograph the sweet Neugent family. Stacia is a friend from high school and it was so great to see her growing family. Her and Charlie’s little guy, Brantley was so precious and I loved seeing the 3 of them all cuddled up together.
Enjoy some of my favorites from the adorable Bryant family. I have been photographing Logan since he was in his mama’s belly and he gets cuter every time I see him!
The McClung family. Honestly, I have felt overwhelmed at the thought of starting this post for days. There is so much I could say and yet, it seems like there are not adequate words to describe what this family means to us and what they have been through in the past year. So I will start by saying the same thing that I told Suni and Steve when we wrapped their session. Matt and I want to be you guys when we grow up. I know, I know… we’ve grown up… But, we truly admire this family more than words could say. Steve is our Pastor, together Suni and Steve are precious friends, and their kids are babysitters for my kids and very loved by us all.
8 months ago, the McClung family lost their precious son and brother, Ezekiel, tragically and unexpectedly at age 13. This was the same week our Knox Ezekiel came into the world, which is why you may recognize the name. I know there are still really low days and then some better days for the McClung’s, but they will tell you that God has been gracious to see them through every day. They have approached Ezekiel’s loss in the best way, by remembering and honoring him always. Not avoiding bringing him up because it might be awkward. Their motto now is, “Always6” to be sure that people know they will forever be a family of 6. This is the way we wanted to approach this shoot. There are some classic family shots and there are some that are more focused on honoring Ezekiel’s memory, but in every shot they would tell you that they are Always6.
Please continue to pray for the McClungs and enjoy their sweet session.
Caroline was so sweet and timid during her one year session a couple of weeks ago. Pretty much exactly how she was at her Newborn Session. At this age, sometimes I get lots of smiles and other times I get lots of discovering… The outdoors, my camera, everything was interesting to this sweet girl. Smiles or not though, Caroline is adorable and it shows in these images. You can also tell how smitten her mom and dad are over her, which I love. Sarah and Josh, I hope cherish these images for years to come.
I love one year sessions. Especially when I have been able to photograph the Newborn Session and 6 Month Session. It is amazing how a baby changes over the course of just 1 year! Shep was a ham for his one year session and gave us lots of cute, happy faces. He was just days away from walking which worked out perfectly when I needed him to stay in one place. This guy is so adorable and I know he and his parents will make you smile.
I love fall for so many reasons. One reason is, fall is the time of year that I reconnect with my most loyal clients for family photos. This season I have been absolutely swamped with family sessions many of these have been my repeat clients like the Fisher family. I have photographed these guys more times than I can count, and they have truly become friends. Both Maddex and Stella have grown a mile since I saw them a few months ago and we had a great time at their Pumpkin Patch session. Enjoy!
