This.. this right here is why we love shooting more than just weddings.
Being a photographer is much more than just taking photos.. it's building a family-like relationship with your clients.
To see families grow and to capture their journey is such a wonderful thing. I absolutely LOVE it.
This year has been busy for these two. We have had the pleasure of shooting Madeline & Stewart's wedding, gender reveal, maternity session and now.. finally!!!! Little miss Lowry Rose is in the world and so so so adorable and perfect. I cannot put into words the amount of love I have for this sweet family and how we will be here to document their lives and grow.
Cheers & congratulations to Madeline, Stewart, and Lowry Rose!
You guys made one pretty baby!
The love between Sunny and Chinwe is unlike any I have ever seen before.
They are 100% connected to each other in all aspects of life.
Their love is as strong today as it was the day they married.
Now we welcome Samantha Grace into that love creating something even larger.
Their maternity session flows right into the newborn session.
I wish these three nothing but love and happiness as their family and love continues to grow.
Paul & Elizabeth welcomed little Henry into the world on January 22nd. Weighing in at 8lbs 4 oz. & 21.5" tall. It is definitely newborn season.
I will say that parenthood looks great on these two loving parents. The grandparents and Katie, Elizabeth and Paul's soon to be sister in law (!!), were there for this session, too. It made the session just a little bit more special. The nursery was woodland themed. Elizabeth collected figurines as a child and was able to take some from her collection for the nursery. So sweet.
I had the pleasure of taking little miss Mila Arra's photos this past weekend. She was born 12.31.15. At a month old, she just keeps getting more and more precious. She was so tired but didn't fall asleep until the end of the session. You can notice by all the baby yawns I captured. Her big brother, Liam, loves his new little sister and settling in quite well.
Carissa & John have such a beautiful family. I am excited to see what this year brings them & so on. Take a look....
Joel & Patrick are two of my oldest and dearest friends of mine. This session was a very special one for me.
These two have gone through all the ups and downs of adoption. They have paid their dues for years with all the waiting and heartbreak. It has all paid off now because they have Greyson Eli Atchison. This handsome little man has no idea how incredibly lucky he is to have TWO wonderful and caring fathers.
The morning they went into the NICU to meet him for the first time, little Greyson was sick and screaming his lungs out. The minute they stepped up to him he calmed right down. The nurses were in tears. They had to take turns stepping out of the room. Greyson knew he had just met the two loves of his life that will be there for him and love him unconditionally.
I cannot wait to see him grow up and help capture all of his milestones.
Congratulations you three. You guys truly truly deserve all the happiness that is coming your way.
Baby Charlotte is finally here and oh so teeny tiny! Emma Kate thinks she is her own personal baby doll... which we all know isn't the case in the least bit! She is such a loving big sister! Charlotte is going to be a trooper when she gets a little bit older. Such a happy family. Once spring time rolls around again we will be getting full family photos, again. So exciting. Congrats to adorable baby Charlotte.
There is something about newborn photos and black and white that go hand in hand. Baby Emery is here and has a family full of love! Addie and Michael are going to be the best big siblings. Congratulations to Michael and Rhonda for making such beautiful babies!
Blair and Dustin have outdone themselves this time. These two boys are some of the most calm newborn babies I have ever worked with. She has had such an easy pregnancy and first two weeks with these adorable boys. This entire session had me squealing at every shot that appeared on my computer screen while editing. I cannot wait to see these boys grow up and capture their moments along the way. Also, their nursery is so perfect. I love everything about it. You can decide for yourself below.
