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!

Showering Baby Demi Lee | Event

Capturing memories for people is why I am a photographer. You can never have enough pictures, and I’m always so excited to help capture the here and now for people to remember later.

A few weeks ago I was asked to photograph a special little baby shower for a sweet princess to be! When I say it was the perfect shower, it was. I’m so happy I could be a part of their day.

Amanda is a professional ballerina. I mean, Demi Lee has no idea how cool her mommy is, but I’m sure she will find out soon enough! And when I think of a ballerina, I think of a soft, graceful dancer. And today’s shower was just that, soft and graceful!

Enjoy a few of my favorite pictures from the shower. Food was catered by Olexa’s, flowers were designed by CeCe Design LLC, and it was held at The Nest.



The Wards | Family

In two short months, this family of three will welcome twins girls. Big brother is pretty excited about them, and I know mom and dad are patiently waiting for their arrival.

Earlier today I captured the last set of professional pictures for this family of three. We had some fun and made sure big brother, Sam, was the center of attention.

Here are a few of my favorites from their session.


The Wards | Family

Wade, Robin and Sammy (as Terry likes to call him) have been friends of ours going on two years now. We met them at church and are in small group together. Wade (and Robin) are actually the leaders of our small group. An all around sweet and compassionate family that we are proud to know.

We had a cookout at our home Memorial Day, and while the grill was going it was the perfect time to take some family pictures for them.

IMG_0025IMG_0027We’ve been holding a secret. A secret that when we were told, we almost fell out of our chairs.
