Fall Family Photos
This family. I first met them almost 2 years ago, you can read more about that here. I got to catch up with them this fall and photograph them in their home on film. I found a family that was changed from the first time I’d met them. They’ve clung tightly to each other and to the Lord in such time of uncertainty and it’s been woven into their family. Jenn (who also happens to be an incredibly talented photographer) has truly been an encouragement to me and such an example of faithfulness in the midst of trials. She recently messaged me this scripture and encouragement and I want to share it with you.
“Your bolts and gates shall be iron and bronze AND AS YOUR DAYS, SO SHALL YOUR STRENGTH BE.” Deuteronomy 33:25
“I’m so built up by the idea of God giving us the strength that today requires. Don’t look ahead for tomorrow. Don’t try to draw strength and energy and creativity for a month from now or grace and help for a situation that “could happen.” Grace for today. In copious amounts. Praying this for you today and for me!'“
“Dear Old World, she murmured, you are very lovely and I’m glad to be alive in you.” -Anne of Green Gables- L.M. Montgomery
I had the best time reconnecting with these old friends in one of the most beautiful places on earth on a gorgeous summer morning, while they did what they do best, love one another. Enjoy these sweet photos of our time together.
This family is so special to me, because they've been with me from the very beginning of my journey back when their oldest was in her mama's tummy. They were one of my very first clients. So to get to see them every year and watch them grow and see their love expand, well, it just feels like a gift to me.

This family is bursting with life and I love spending time with them each time I photograph them. Sharing a few favorites with you from our session this fall. <3
No one has impacted my photographic journey more than this woman. No one. Besides the fact that her work stirs me and inspires me like none other, I have been impacted by her on an even deeper level and for that I am forever grateful.
About 2 years ago I met Joy at her wildflowers workshop and she taught me to examine my work like I never had before. Her mentorship made me want to create art that makes me feel deeply and for it to be used to encourage families in every season, no matter what. She encouraged me in my giftings, helped me to become more observant, to be more vulnerable in my work and to see that each persons version of beauty is different. So, needless to say, when she asked me to photograph her family, I went outside on my front porch and screamed for probably a solid 10 minutes. haha! Because to be able to photograph her was truly, such an incredible honor. It felt like a gift to me. Thank you Joy for pouring into me and so many others. You are something else mama. <3
I immediately clicked with this sweet family when I photographed them last month. Maybe it was the size and ages of their children, maybe it was the chat that mama and I had about this season of life and how we've had to learn to have so much grace for other mothers, because all these babies in, we've realized we don't have this thing figured out and we definitely need grace ourselves! Either way, I had the best time with their gang.
Mama contacted me wanting to document this sweet spot in their family of 5 before they welcomed their 4th babe and I am so glad I got to spend the evening hanging with them. I wanted to share this before I share their fresh 48 session later this week. Definitely an all time favorite session for me so stay tuned for that...Enjoy!
You guys. This session is so special to me. Ashley and I met last year in Austin, TX at Joy Prouty's wildflower's workshop. I loved getting to know her there and have fallen in love with her work. Truly, her photographic voice is so beautiful. So I was over the moon that I got to photograph her beautiful family a few weeks back. We met at 630 in the morning and ended with breakfast, hot coffee and a long talk about our passion. It doesn't get much better than that. Enjoy this sweet family's images. They were a family photographers dream.
I loved photographing this sweet family in their own space to celebrate their little guy turning 6 months. He even fell asleep during our session which I didn't mind one bit. Happy 6 months Asher man!
Love this sweet family even more each time I photograph them. I feel right at home with them because they remind me so much of my own crew. A little wild and crazy mixed with a whole lotta love for each other. <3
This family. I just love them. I have loved seeing them become a family of three this year. This mama is not only a hugely talented photographer herself but also a very dear friend to me. She is a constant source of encouragement and their little darling is so lucky to have them both. So happy to have been able to photograph them this fall. Love you guys!
Happy New Years Eve everyone! This year has been such an incredible blessing to me and I am so very grateful to each and every one of my clients who have allowed me to photograph these beautiful connections with each other. I wanted to end this year on my blog with one of my favorite sessions of the year. I'm hoping to get more of these beautiful families from this past fall blogged here in the coming weeks. I can't wait to see this family again this spring when they welcome their new little bundle in April! Enjoy! And blessings to you and yours in 2017!
I had the best time photographing this sweet family last month to kick off my fall season. Kristen is a photographer herself at Overbay Photography and when she contacted me she told me how she wanted to be fully present with her children at her session since she's always the one behind the camera. I can totally relate to that! I am so happy I got to document this sweet time with your lovely family Overbays! Enjoy these precious photos. <3
This family's session was easily one of my favorite sessions from this fall. They were so much fun and loving towards one another. Mom and Dad were celebrating 10 years of marriage and wanted to do some photos since it has been a really long time since they've had any done. Well, I am just so glad they chose me to photograph them because I had the best time hanging out with this gorgeous family. Enjoy these sweet photos!
Last week I took my 3 babes out to this gorgeous little pumpkin patch for a few shots for my limited edition pumpkin patch mini sessions. I am so in love with these images and I can't wait to do these for my clients. They were styled by my sweet friend Nicole Wise. You can find out more about her styling services for my clients here. I HIGHLY recommend. It made dressing them super easy for me. And in case you didn't see here, I am offering very limited pumpkin patch mini sessions this fall. As of this afternoon, there is only one spot left, so be sure to let me know if you want it!
I recently got to photograph one of my sweet friends and fellow photographer Lisa and her family, as well as her sister and her gorgeous family. They are such a fun + hilarious bunch. Seriously there is not a dull moment with these two families. I loved every minute of our session! Lisa and her family were styled by our stylist Nicole. You can find more info on her styling services here.
