Spring and Summer!

I have been so lucky this year! I have been kept very busy, photographing the cutest kids, most beautiful mama’s to be, and genetically gifted families! I wanted to share a little of what I have been up to, as I haven’t had the time to blog every single session! I am looking forward to a jam packed Fall and Holiday season, I have the best, BEST job!

Baby J

My session with baby J was just perfection. He was such a cooperative little guy (to his parent’s surprise!). I am really looking forward to capturing this little one’s first year:)

Little Man L

I couldn’t help but share some images from my session with the M family, celebrating baby L’s arrival! Mom did such a lovely job of styling the session, and had some really fun ideas. Combine this with the fact that this family is genetically blessed, and you have the perfect formula for a photographer’s dream! Welcome baby L, you are so very loved.

Loot Bags

A variety of Dukes and “Southern” themed toys packed into a custom designed Duke of Hearts gift bag. The little guests left with things like matchbox cars, bubbles, farm animal figurines, an “at-home” s’moores kit, and old fashioned lollipops. Big guests took home some Duke of Hearts BBQ sauce.
