THE JOURNAL

The hushed excitement pulsing through the recovery room. Three (yes, THREE!) big sisters, eagerly waiting to meet the newest baby girl. The sweet swell of mama’s freshly postpartum belly, cradling a newborn that’s been earthside for just a few hours. Fresh 48 sessions are magical. Documentary and unposed, taking place in the hospital within 48 […]

Have you ever met someone whose story instantly inspires you? That’s how I felt when I first met Candi. She’s a Tennessean, an F-18 pilot for the US Navy, best friends with her mama, former pageant girl, and just an all-around awesome person. If there was ever a contest for the person with the most […]

Ahh, that sweet newborn phase. You can feel it the moment you walk through the front door: a beautiful, pristine nursery, a careful silence in the air, and utterly exhausted and yet over-the-moon joyful parents. That’s exactly what I found when I visited Katie and Kyle. I had the pleasure of photographing their maternity portraits […]

This session was so special. Shandi and I worked together a few years ago and when I found out she was expecting her second baby, I knew I just had to photograph her! Shandi and her husband, Ian, have gone through so much for their babies, and their love and gratitude for their children just […]

A racing tire has got to be the most unusual thing yet that has rolled into my studio. Beth texted me the night before Lilly’s newborn session and warned me that she was bringing a racing tire as a surprise prop for Lilly’s dad, but I was still unprepared for how huge this thing would […]

I’m so excited to share a few favorites from Cam’s session this morning! Cam’s mom, Jaymi, and I married into the same extended family, and I was honored to capture these images of her new baby boy. How sweet are his little hands? I just love Cam’s adorable hairline, too. Newborn hair (or lack thereof!) […]

It’s no secret that moms love to take pictures. A piece of your heart is literally walking around outside your body, growing and changing every day. You want to capture every minute – especially in the early days. I took the above image when my youngest daughter, Eleanor, was just three days old. I whipped […]

There’s something truly magical about pregnancy. The anticipation, the overflowing love, the dream of what lies ahead is often palpable among parents-to-be. My time with Katie, a friend from college, and her husband Kyle was all of that and more. Kyle couldn’t stop smiling if he tried, and Katie positively glowed with happiness. I don’t […]

Jaxon’s newborn session was like stepping in to a time machine. When Marie told me that her older son, Kenny, was just 21 months old, I knew what we would be in for – that’s exactly the age spread between my girls. Kenny kept us on our toes, but nonetheless we had an absolutely wonderful […]

I have the greatest job in the world. Sure, the occupational hazards include the risk of getting peed on (or worse) and posing newborns requires the patience of Job, BUT LOOK AT THIS BOY. Connor is just the sweetest little babe, with big, thoughtful eyes and beautiful fair skin. He is most definitely his mama’s […]
