Oh man, do I love this family. Jessi and I became friends about 5 years ago on a fateful day when our doggies decided to become best beds while we were both out walking in the neighborhood. Her pup Sampson, and my dog Eddie were instant buddies, and we easily followed suite. I am so […]

Sweet Madeline! I got to see this sweet girl and just a handful of hours old in the hospital, and again a couple weeks later at home in her precious nursery. It’s hard to believe her 6 month session is already coming up. I can’t wait to see how big she has gotten! I love […]

Sweet baby Eli, the son of my sweet and talented friend Jessi Nichols. My goodness, I loved every second in the studio with this tiny, curly, beautiful baby boy, who transformed into the most womblike positions all on his own. That’s what I love the most about studio newborn sessions – each and every baby […]

Sweet Indi girl! I loved this sweet girl’s beautiful nursery! Her mama and grand dad did the whole feature wall themselves! I immediately went home to research how I could do this in my own baby son’s room, but decided I’m not NEARLY as crafty as this bunch! Welcome to the world, Indi girl!

Mary Weston is officially the tiniest little newborn baby I have ever photographed, coming in at just north of 4 pounds! I went in to see this family at Patewood Memorial Hospital on Thanksgiving morning. There is something just so very special about photographing families as they grow. Watching this family welcome their second baby […]

My best friend had a baby and she is PERFECT! I love this sweet family so very much. It’s been the greatest gift to experience pregnancy and bringing a new baby into the world along side one of my dearest friends. Ruby was born just two months after my own baby boy, and I loved […]

Sweet Nora was a tiny and dainty little thing, and barely made a peep her entire session! She was just so content, curious and happy and I loved every minute with her! Photographing families in their own space is so much fun, and I loved using her precious nursery as the sweet backdrop for her […]

This precious studio newborn session almost didn’t happen. We had originally planned to have a Fresh 48 session in the hospital, but Indi’s arrival into the world was long and left mama with some post delivery complications that prevented us from moving forward with our plans! When that happens, I love to offer the studio […]

Sweet baby JJ! One of my first babies back after welcoming my own baby boy, and let me just say, I have a new soft spot for baby boys! He was a sleepy little thing, and I love how tiny he looks in mama and daddy’s arms. We already have his one year Heirloom Portrait […]

Sweet baby Ford was so good to me for his Fresh 48 session at Greenville Memorial Hospital. I couldn’t get over his precious squishy cheeks and beautiful dark hair! Welcome to the world, little buddy!

Ruby is my best friends daughter, and was SO good to me for her studio newborn session! At just 5lbs 10oz, she is a tiny little thing, but she is growing quickly. I love how she let me curl her up so sweetly, just like she was curled in mamas belly.

Emma! What a sweet little lady. Every room in this home was so gorgeous, with the most beautifully minimalistic decor I’ve ever seen! I loved Emma’s sweet nursery. At just about 20 months apart, big brother was sweet and shy, and so tender with his baby sister. It was a little gloomy on this particular […]
