Family Portrait

April 2018

My SECOND post of 2018...winning!

April was another busy month full of love and joy!  I began the month with some real estate photography and I had a great afternoon photographing this gorgeous 

The very same day, I photographed the gorgeous women of Fonta Flora Brewery!  This was the second year that their sweet, adorable, creative, brilliant, manager, Sara asked me to capture the ladies behind this popular brewery.  I had so much fun with this group and  I LOVE that their business elevates and celebrates the women behind their success.  Check out these BEAUTIES!

I was also invited to a staff gathering to capture a few more headshots as well as document brewing and packaging of their yummy fermentations!

Next was back-to-back weekends shooting ADORABLE kiddos!  These littles were so hysterical.  And I'm obsessed with this secret flower patch that I found tucked away....

Last but not Blayne came to visit me.  He was snuggly and squishy and completely perfect.  Apparently I have a "thing" for baby toes.  

March 2018

You guys!  I'm determined to blog this year.  UGH!  Why is this so challenging for me?  I'm totally aiming for one post a month. SURELY I can manage less than 12 posts, yes?

I've had the busiest spring ever and I'm sooooo HAPPY!  Typically this is a lazy time of year  (ha!  Lazy for a work-a-holic!).  I've been so grateful to have several sessions this spring and I'm already booking into the summer. 

First was a maternity session for my dear friend Val who gave birth to little Blayne yesterday!  I'm obsessed with his name...and his squishy cheeks ♥ Val, her hubby Tyler and their daughter Adrienne came to my house and we took advantage of my neighbor's green thumb.  Thanks Robby!  The light was perfect. Adrienne was a doll.  Valerie was stunning!  Calhoun was obedient.  And Tyler was his ever-good natured self.

Next was little Ivey who was the sleepiest, lazy little chub for her session!  I was lucky enough to photograph her mom and dad's wedding last May.  Sweet Little Ivey let me do whatever I wanted since she had decided to party party party the night before.  Sorry mom!  Newborns life is exhausting but totally worked in my favor ...this time!  Elizabeth and Grant are going to be amazing parents and I can't wait to watch Ivey flourish and grow.

At the tail end of the month were headshots for Gorgeous Georgia.  She is a talented young model and actress who wanted head shots for her portfolio.  We had so much fun and I can't wait to get her to model for me again! 



Mommy + Me ♥

Mama Heather (aka Shugar Shots!) and I have a mutual friend.  Plus, we both love photography, our dogs and being outside.  Perfect fit right?  Welp, over the years we never really kept in touch. 

For some cosmic reason, our connection has grown and matured over the past 6 months.  I say cosmic because the stars kind of aligned to bring us together (ok, maybe being new moms had a little bit to do with it too).  I love this girl!  She has the BEST smile.  Period.  The best.  You'll see in a minute.  I can feel her smile through her text messages!  She is also one of the most thoughtful and generous people I know.  Her outlook on life is so blissfully positive.  She rolls with it.  You know those kind of people?  She's up.  You just can't help but be happy when you're around her.  And her love for her first  born daughter,  is one of the most beautiful relationships I've ever seen.

So in August, when Heather and Hattie (don't you adore that name?) came to visit us in the mountains before their move to Michigan, we of course had the best time!

This sweet session was so much fun!  Looking through these photos takes me back to our wonderful weekend together!  The clouds parted just in time for our sunset shoot.  The light was perfect.  Hattie was mostly tolerating us :)  What more can you ask for?

Here are a few of  my favs.  Enjoy!

Winter Session with the Fensterer + Chesters!

Sara is a great friend of mine.  She is one of those chicks who always has a smile on her face and something great to say.  I just love those kinds of people!  Positivity is my jam.  Plus she's smart.  Like, really smart.  

Sara contacted me in the fall wanting to do a session with her siblings, Matt and Mae and her hubs, Josh.  They book a family session about every 5 years as a Christmas gift for their parents.  Which is why it's February and you're just seeing these images....

Josh has a lot in common with my husband, so I like him a lot ☺  I had never met Matt and Mae, but they are as sweet as Sara, of course.  That.  Mae.  Isn't she a doll?  

It was suuuuuper chilly the day that we shot.  But these guys are completely profesh.  And adorable, right?  I mean look at those faces ♥
