the Kendricks


What an unexpected little treat to get to take some pictures of Carly (the same Carly from the Tower window) and her brothers on Wednesday. I know what you’re thinking – and the answer is Yes. Blake and Tyler’s legs actually are longer in real life.

Thank you, Kendricks! Love you guys.

Not me. Don’t let the watermark fool you. I was just the much glorified, last minute Extra Assistant to The Katie Mosley. These are just a few favorites that I snagged between not having a flash and not having a zoom lens.  : )

Congrats to the happy couple, and thank you, thank you, thank you to Katie and Erin for letting me tag along!

I took maternity pictures for these long-time family friends back in November, and yesterday I got to take the 6 months for their sweet baby Celia. We went to the same locations and used some of the same props. What a joy it is to watch this family’s story unfold, and what an honor it is to get to help them tell it through my pictures.

Love you guys.  🙂

the Sessions’ session

This little man is the bump under the B, O, & Y Scrabble letters at the top of my page. His parents were my first maternity shoot, back in September, and now Cale is my first baby shoot! The Sessions are dear friends, and it’s such a joy to photograph them. We almost had to raincheck, but instead God gave us perfect light.

Love you three!

thank you, Erin Thacker Photography!

First order of business: to give full credit to Erin Thacker Photography for this wedding! Erin photographed this wedding, and I only got to help because her assistant dropped out last minute. (sidenote: also thank you to Katie Mosley for giving Erin my name!) I was completely unqualified, but Erin was patient with me and taught me so much. These are just a few of the non-contract-breaking detail shots that I took, but please do yourself a favor and check out the rest on Erin’s website &/or facebook page.
