Oh man. The Cokers. Gosh I love this crew. This is our second year doing a Mommy and Me session in the Spring, and each year just keeps getting better. Maggie and Carter are the sweetest, and their love for each other reminds me of my own two kiddos. I love watching siblings interact, and […]

Ohhhh this sweet baby girl! I photographed Mason as an itty bitty newborn baby, and I was so happy to see her again to photograph her for her first birthday milestone.

We captured her first birthday milestone at the Furman Rose Garden right at the peak of all the beautiful blooms. She is happy, healthy, and just absolutely perfect. Sweet little Everett, it’s been an […]

Luke was such a trooper for his 6 month session, and had the BEST little expressions I’ve ever seen. He was so dang sweet, and is the perfect example of why I LOVE this age. Just look at him! So precious!

August 14, 2017

This session represents so much of what I love about lifestyle newborn photography. It’s a celebration of the last 40 weeks of waiting, praying, planning, and anticipating. It’s the joy of the simple yet miraculous fact that your sweet baby is finally home and in your arms. It’s joy, innocence, tenderness and unconditional love, captured […]

Hannah and I went to high school together, and I was so honored when she asked me to photograph her family in their new home on a recent visit to Tampa. Charley is just a handful of weeks older than my James, and he was such a little ham for his photo session.
