Her mama specifically commissioned Heirloom Portraits for the color version of them, and I LOVE that. The color portraits are very unique to this […]

Sweet Vivienne came all the way from St. Louis, MO for her portrait sitting. I’ve been so lucky to have families travel from all over the US to come sit for a session. I think its safe to say it was well worth the trip. I can’t wait for her little brother to make the […]

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 […]

Sweet Willa! This little lady came in at about 9 months old for her portrait sitting, the same age as her sister when she had her portrait taken! Mama wanted a 5 image composite to match big sisters, and I know they will be so beautiful displayed next to each other. I love that these […]
