This was the first time I had met sweet Chloie and her family and we had so much fun! We ended up at the Arboretum on a very warm day and despite the crazy humidity, little Chloie was amazing. I loved the colors they chose and how beautiful Chloie looked in her dress. Six months is such a fun and interactive age... the perfect time for a session. Enjoy a few of their images!
I was so excited to get these two into the studio! Photographing newborn twins is challenging but usually results in some beautiful images. They were amazing and actually cooperated with us. Love it when that happens! A few weeks after the studio session, we also got to photograph the whole family in their beautiful new home. It was a lot of fun and especially awesome to see the siblings love on the girls.
I was so excited when I found out this sweet family was expecting again. I had photographed the birth of William a few years back and couldn't wait to meet the newest edition. I was out the door in the middle of the night only to walk into the birth 20 seconds after sweet Samantha was born. Everyone was shocked to see how quickly Miss Samantha wanted to be in this world! I am just so glad I made it when I did to capture these precious moments.
So this sweet family has had to wait very patiently to see their birth sneak peeks since the server transfer managed to take down the blog! We are back up and running and I am so excited to share the arrival of Spencer. What a sweet and CHUNKY little man he is and I am honored to have been there for his speedy arrival. Mom and Dad were an amazing team and mom was able to acheive her desired birth. Welcome, Spencer! You are a lucky boy to have such a beautiful family!
I was so excited to help welcome this little man into the world. This sweet family has six girls at home and were overjoyed to discover baby number 7 was a boy! I was blessed to be there when they had their 6th daughter, so it was so much fun to be there again. Little Joshua came out strong and mighty and had an opinion for sure. He may have been on the smaller side, but he wasn't going to let that stop him. He is just simply delicious and I can only imagine he is never set down with all those sisters wanting to love on him all the time. Congrats, you guys! He is in the best home!
I was so excited to have a client go into labor on Turkey day and even more excited that it happened in the wee hours of the morning so I didn't have to miss the feast! I was honored to attend this peaceful and beautiful birth and see a mom so calm and relaxed bring her sweet son into the world. It was the perfect way to spend Thanksgiving. Mr. Samuel arrived weighing 2 lbs bigger than his sister and oh was he cute! I can't wait to get my hands on him again for our newborn session! Enjoy!
I had the honor of photographing Caleb's birth! I was a little worried about making to the hospital in time since he was number 3 and his brother and sister had arrived very quickly. Thankfully it all worked out perfectly. He came when he was ready and we were all ready for him! Not only was the birth beautiful, but he was too! Not to mention a little chunkier than we thought he would be. His mom and dad were so thrilled to meet him and it was a pleasure to get to photograph their first moments together.
I was so excited to be at this birth and even though it was intense and a lot of work for mama, it was also full of laughter and joyous tears. It was so beautiful to watch this mama and papa bring their second son into the world. Not only is he just a sweet and handsome addition to the family, but I know he will be so loved. I am excited to share these photos, especially since they have family in Europe who I am sure are anxious to see the newest addition!
I was so excited to get the call to come to this sweet girl's birth. I was glad I left to go when I did, because when I got there, mom was already pushing! This sweet girl was in a hurry to arrive. Mom did an amazing job bringing her into the world and Dad was right there the whole time. Big brother was THRILLED to meet Ainsley once he woke from a deep sleep. Overall, a beautiful and calm homebirth where Ainsley was surrounded by love.
Words can't express the honor it was to be at this birth. Sweet Mercy was diagnosed with Trisomy 13 and was not expected to live. I was there to document the time they had with her and to share in the joy and sorrow of her birth. I was honored. Everything went smoothly and the staff at the hospital was really wonderful. The best part is Mercy is still with her family. They know she won't last too much longer, but every minute they get to share with her is truly a gift from God.
I was honored to help this family have their first baby. Their plan was to have a natural hospital birth using Hypnobabies and not only to they succeed, but they did an amazing job. This mom was STRONG and beautiful all through labor and her husband was a ROCK in supporting her. He was almost as amazing as my own hubby and that is saying a lot, because I personally think my hubby is awesome ;) Either way, they had a gorgeous baby girl when it was all said and done. They were so overjoyed and proud. It was an honor to support them and document this time. Congrats you guys!
Working with toddlers can be challenging. But usually I have a few tricks up my sleeve that makes it a lot easier. This session couldn't have worked out better. We got some beautiful images of mom and dad before sweet M woke up from her nap. We were able to include her in this special time as well. I love documenting the sweet moments a little family has before adding another member.
I had the honor of photographing Mercury's big sisters birth a few years ago and was so honored to get to help welcome this little man into the world. Amazingly, he wasn't so little! He weighed in at 10lbs 7oz and was just as beautiful as his big sister. Thanks again you guys for having me there. It is always a pleasure!

I love this sweet family! I have had the honor of photographing them since they were expecting their first baby and they have continued on our baby plan and have now welcomed baby number two. They are my biggest cheerleaders and I feel so blessed to know them. This birth was beautiful and went just a smoothly as you could hope. Mom was relieved to not have to push for hours and even more amazed that she pushed for only a few minutes! What a blessing.
Baby Austin was born and almost immediately started looking around. He was truly aware of his amazing parents. Praying that you guys enjoy these images as much as I do!
I was so excited to attend this birth because it meant that this sweet boy was coming out and giving his mama some relief! We all expected him to be big, but not quite as big as he was. It was so much fun to be with this family while they rejoiced in this new addition. I think the funnest moment was when the big brother and big sister got to meet their new brother. My favorite comment was when sweet Lydia announced that her baby brother was "Eating mom all up" when she saw him nurse. She was so concerned! I just love the innocence of these babes. It makes my heart swell. Well here are the sneaks of this sweet boy, who weighed in at 10lbs 8oz! Enjoy!
I was so surprised to hear from this beautiful family last Monday. Apparently Little Cashel wanted to make his arrival about 3 weeks early! I wasn't complaining as he arrived on a gorgeous first spring day. It was a fast and beautiful labor and I was so honored to be there. They also had the support of their amazing doula, Sarah whose birth I was also honored to photograph. I look forward to seeing him again next week for our newborn session. Welcome little man!
I was honored to be asked to attend the birth of this sweet boy. I was there two years ago when his big brother Noah was born. I love getting to work with a family for the second time. The birth was beautiful and went as perfectly as we could have hoped. I was so happy to get to see big brother Noah get to meet "Baby Teygan". What an exciting day for everyone. Enjoy a few images from this beautiful birth!
I was so excited to get the call that this mama was in labor. She was supposed to have a scheduled c-section, so labor meant we were going to try naturally instead! Not only was she amazingly strong and beautiful, but her sweet hubby stood next to her and supported her through it all. The emotion in the room when this sweet little girl was born was incredible. I think her daddy's face when he is meeting her for the first time, says it all. I was honored to have been there. I am trying to catch up on blogging, so watch for her maternity and newborn pics soon!
