I entered a sea of PINK one afternoon in late April when I arrived at Northside Hospital in Atlanta for baby Kaitlin’s Fresh 48. Kaitlin makes baby girl #4 for this beautiful family! Her and her sisters were all gender surprises, and it’s safe to say – this family makes beautiful baby girls! Kaitlin has […]

Oh sweet Miles, your mommy and daddy have been waiting for you! This miracle baby boy has been prayed for for so long, and it’s been an honor to be a small part of his journey earth side! I got to meet Marissa and Paul a few months ago for their maternity session, and was […]

Sweet Lucy girl arrived swiftly and unexpectedly! When mama went to labor, daddy wasn’t even in town! He had to hightail it back to Greenville and made it back for her birth literally JUST in the nick of time! I love birth stories, and it’s one of my favorite things to hear during a Fresh […]

Bryana was the sweetest mama to work with for her Fresh 48. Baby Zander was due right around the holidays, and knowing I had some travel planned around her due date, we weren’t sure I’d be available for a Fresh 48 when Zander made his debut! Bryana was so sweet and really wanted me to […]

I am always so impressed with my gender surprise families (umm, hello patience on a whole new level!), and I was SO excited when this sweet mama shared the news that they had a baby GIRL! She was the tiniest little thing at 5lbs 13oz, and surprised everyone by arriving two weeks early! I loved […]

I was so excited to get this note from this mama that she was expecting baby number four, and wanted me to come to the hospital for a Fresh 48 in Greenville, South Carolina. I met this gorgeous family in 2016 shortly after they welcomed baby #3. At the time, I was VERY pregnant myself […]

This sweet girl is the youngest of three, and she looks SO much like her big brother and sister I can hardly believe it. The family resemblance can’t be denied for sweet Sloane. Her mama and daddy didn’t know her gender before she was born, and were convinced they were having another boy. They couldn’t […]

If someone told me that I had to pick ONE kind of session, and it would be the only one I could conduct for the rest of my life, it would take me about .6 seconds to yell “Fresh 48”, and all the energy I could muster to somehow contain my excitement. This is what […]

Logan was the last babe I photographed in the hospital before welcoming my own daughter, and let me just say that after my own hospital experience, I have a new perspective on these precious sessions! Bless you mama’s who let me into such a life changing moment. The days in the hospital are blurry, at times overwhelming, and incredibly exhausting, but the sweetness and that falling in love feeling you have for your new baby are far greater than anything else.

What a humbling experience it has been to become a mother. Being a photographer that documents so much of motherhood and family life has been such an honor and gift to me since my humble beginning in the Fall of 2014, and becoming a mother myself has given me such a new perspective for this little business of mine.

Every single time I have the opportunity to meet a brand new baby and am invited to the lives of new or growing families at such a special and intimate time, I am so overwhelmed with emotion – the joy, love and excitement are so palpable, and I cannot believe I get to call this “work.”
