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!
Grayson is now 6 months and just keeps getting cuter and cuter!
I cannot wait to see all of these milestone sessions put together at the end of his one year session!
I cannot get over how adorable he gets. And also how much he really does look like his daddies!
Hello friends and followers!
We must apologize for this much belated update.
Things have been so crazy and busy that we finally have time to update this dang thing!
Spring Mini Sessions went so well!!! A HUGE thanks to all the families that came out. The rain made us change the dates so we really appreciate all the flexibility you guys have for us! Also thanks to Blair @ Blair Bailey Design for custom making some beautiful dream catchers for the sessions!
Take a look at how cute all the kiddos are! This was definitely our best one yet!

Last years mini session props came in handy once again. Did a small spring session for the Dover family and it was cuter than ever. I cannot believe how big the girls are getting! I am sure we will be covering all of their seasons and milestones.
This weekend was gorgeous... just a little on the chilly side when the wind blew. We all got used to the warmth so the chill got us good. They still came out super cute. See for yourself:
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.
Alright friends- be prepared for some major family session posts. It's that time of year!
My sister's birthday was Friday and she wanted photos done. How can I say no to this?! I just cannot get enough of how handsome my nephews are becoming. They just keep getting cuter and cuter. My sister & brother-in-law are such awesome parents and are raising some awesome boys.
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.
This one year session was a fun one. I met the Thompson's at a friend of theirs property in Cartersville, Georgia.
I cannot believe Hope is one! It feels like yesterday I was doing her newborn session.
She definitely makes my job so easy.
I don't think she can get much cuter than she already is! Those blue eyes!
Kim and Jordon make some pretty good looking babies! I cannot wait to see baby number two in January!
Happy Birthday, Hope!
This sweet family was such a joy to work with! Amy found me and contacted me for a one year session/family photos. Amma and Kesslea were adorable! Amma is the oldest of the two and she was such a ham for the camera. Kesslea had a farm theme going for her first birthday so what better place to do photos than at a farm!?
Amma wanted to pose the same way. She even did it on her own. So cute!
This session was different altogether.
Sarah's pup, Slugger, was recently diagnosed with cancer of the nerves.
They are only giving him 3-6 months to live. Slugger is a rescue dog that Sarah saved in college. He has been by her side through all of college, marriage, and now even her first born, Sully. He is one of the sweetest pups. She wanted to have one more big family shoot. Her wish was granted. Not only that, I also did a double shoot. Andres served with Steve. Andres, Danae, and their son Landon were in town for Chicago visting. I squeezed in a family shoot for them, too. This is the first family session they have had since Landon was born. Now she is expecting baby number 2! Fortunately, you cannot tell the day was super hot! Poor Sarah had a crazy day before the shoot. Sully actually got stung on the cheek right before the session began. Half way through, the pups jumped into the pretty murky pond. What else would a dog want to do when they are hot? Regaurdless, I feel like if I didn't tell you these small details, you probably wouldn't have noticed in the slightest. Take a look!
