I’ve been photographing this couple since their engagement – what a privilege for me. I love being able to watch their love grow! I’m so happy Miranda decided to book an in-home session.  I was recently talking to a photographer that regrets not taking newborn photos after her son was born. This really prompted me […]

Couple with newborn baby

It was a lovely fall day for Jenny and Scott to get married. They are such a sweet, laid back couple.

Wishing this sweet couple […]

The Nycum family invited me over to take some pictures of their new little one named Wells. How precious is this family of six! Wells came in time to enjoy Christmas with his family. This family is just as sweet as their photos.

The groom surprised all the guests with a set of music played by his personal band. It’s always a blast to celebrate a marriage with live music. […]
