Demi Lee’s Nursery Reveal |Baby

It’s hard to believe that two short weeks ago, Demi Lee entered the world. I had the pleasure of photographing her birth and her Fresh 48 session. And yesterday, we spent the morning photographing some new memories for mommy and daddy — her nursery reveal!

Demi’s mommy is a ballerina. So it was only fitting that her room be full of soft pinks and ballet things. Amanda did an incredible job putting together such a sweet nursery for her baby girl.

Enjoy a few of my favorites from their session.



Demi Lee | Fresh 48

A photographer is sometimes asked to be present in the most precious events in people’s lives. From engagements to weddings, and from birth through all the baby’s milestones — our job is to capture moments for people to treasure for a lifetime. And last Friday, I was able to capture the most precious event in a couple’s lives — the birth of their first child. I’ll be leaving the birth pictures for them to share as a family, if they decide to do so. But, let me tell you, it was an incredible experience. And I’m so happy I was able to be there for them. The pictures are breathtaking!

The following day I came back to the hospital for the baby’s Fresh 48 session. She was so sweet and snuggly, and was the perfect subject for me to photograph. OH, and mom and dad were looking amazing just 24 hours after this sweetness came in the world.

Introducing sweet Demi Lee…. enjoy some of my favorites from her Fresh 48 session.

Congratulations on your sweet family of THREE! I can’t wait to watch her grow!

The Riekebergs | Family

This sweet family asked me to do a lifestyle session with them at their home before I left for vacation, and I’m just now stopping long enough to blog about them. Lacretia has been keeping me busy photographing all her real estate listings, and FYI, those houses aren’t lasting long on the market!

She wanted some new marketing photos for her business, and wanted some new family shots as well. So we had some fun with the entire family, even their sweet dog, Purdy!

Enjoy some of my favorites from their session!


And if you need help with real estate, give Lacretia a call!


The Reyes |Kids

The Reyes family have become sweet friends of ours. The friendship started off last year during Preschool and Mother’s Day Out. Our kids are the same age, and were in class together. Once they became friends, Lindsey and I were introduced and we became fast friends. We found out in May that this sweet family is moving to another state at the end of summer. And, well, we are crushed. My kids ask everyday to see Stephen, Becca and Mae, and I know once they move many tears will be shed. So, we are spending as much time together as we can this summer to make memories.

Lindsey wanted some updated pictures of her littles, and the weather has not been cooperating on the days we have planned. So, we got up EARLY this morning, and the outcome was perfection!

Enjoy a few of my favorites of Stephen, Becca, and Mae!


Randy, Grace & Colton | Family

Back in the fall, I photographed Randy and Grace for her maternity photo session. We laughed and had a great time, and I couldn’t wait to meet little Colton!

This little guy was born two months ago, and he is so handsome and sweet. We moved from place to place and he was happy as can be! I can’t wait to see him crack a smile soon, and before we know it he will be sitting up by himself! But time, please don’t pass too soon!

Thanks again, y’all, for allowing me to capture some sweet memories for y’all in this new chapter of your life! Enjoy a few of my favorites from their session!


The Thompsons | Family

Ted, Lauren, Tripp, and Kaiden had their family pictures made late Fall last year, but I’m just now able to share them with y’all. You can read the previous post for more information about that.

We met at Oak Mountain State Park and had a ball taking pictures. The Thompsons were able to pick out one to use on their Christmas card, and I bet you’ll be able to figure out which one it was from my favorites! I can’t wait to see how much these boys have grown next Fall!

I’m so excited to finally be able to release these pictures on the blog. Enjoy my favorites from their session!



Kaiden | Adopted

I got to witness and photograph another adoption this month. This time it was personal friends of mine, however, this wasn’t the first time I’ve photographed them as a family of four. But, this is the first time I can share pictures of them with Kaiden!

This is one close knit family, and it was heartwarming to see all of them in attendance for today’s hearing. I’m so happy for Ted, Lauren, and Tripp as they welcome their newest official member of the family, Kaiden. I’m pretty sure if you ask Tripp, he’d say Kaiden became his brother over a year ago!

Congratulations to the Thompsons! All FOUR of you!

Here are some of my favorites from the adoption hearing.


The Mendes | Family

This sweet family welcomed their first born just over a week ago. I’m not a “newborn photographer” but, I will do lifestyle sessions with you and your newborn. And it turns out, that’s what Ava and Delio were looking for.

Little Liam is precious, and he was so good. I know Ava and Delio are excited he is here and excited to spend their Christmas with him. I look forward to watching this little one grow up!!

Enjoy a few of my favorites from their session.


The Sowells | Family

During the craziness of the busy season, we stopped and took a moment to take our family pictures! A HUGE thank you to my bestie, Stephanie ( for meeting us to take them. We have the same camera so I brought her one of my SD cards and she made the magic happen. When we got home I downloaded the pictures to my computer. When I opened them up — I was in love!

No my kids aren’t smiling in every photo. And not every picture is perfect. But, it’s our family pictures and we are happy to have this moment in time captured for our memories! It’s fun to see our yearly pictures and how the girls have changed in a year!

We hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas, and a wonderful New Year! I look forward to capturing memories for you and your family in 2017!!

Enjoy my favorites from our family session!
