Sweet Mellie! I photographed her Fresh 48 a year ago, and it was so special to have her into the studio for her first birthday milestone! Her parents ordered several prints in 16×20, and they are even more beautiful in person. Printing big is becoming a favorite with these portraits, and it makes me so […]

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 […]

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.

I know it’s hard to believe, but this IS in fact a real baby girl! Is she not just gorgeous? I’ve been photographing Harper since she was in her mamas tummy – only we didn’t even know she was in there yet! I love this family, and I’ve loved watching Harper grow. I’m already counting […]

Sweet Hudson came in for his Heirloom portrait sitting this Fall, and I still can’t get over his gorgeous red hair! These portraits are known for their traditional black and whites, but the color images just really speak to me. I love how beautiful Hudson’s portraits are, and I know his family will enjoy them […]

Oh, Cholls. She is baby PERFECTION! Look at all these glorious, beautiful rolls on this precious little girl. I photographed Cholls as an itty bitty baby, and it was so wonderful to get her in the studio for her 6 month milestone session.
