The Burrells

Ever since Adrienne first emailed me about family photos, I knew this was going to be a fun session, and that certainly proved to be true.  I could tell almost immediately that this family loved each other; the way they interacted and loved on each other was a privilege to witness.  These guys were such a blast to work with and were total naturals in front of the camera.  The nailed each pose and rolled with every silly idea I threw their way…the boys even contributed a few ideas of their own!  I loved getting to spend the evening with the Burrells, getting to know them better and capturing their beautiful family.

The Honeycutt Family

“I’ve found the perfect spot for pictures!”  When Sharon excitedly scrolled through her phone and showed me this spot that she had discovered at the base of Triple Falls, I was in love.  And even though Josh wouldn’t go down the falls for an action shot, I’m still pretty excited about the images we got. 😉  Working in beautiful mountain locations with dear families like this one has got to be one of my favorite things.  I had such a blast with these guys!  They are the sweetest family and getting to know them has been such a blessing.

Enjoy some of my favorites from their session:

Logan and MacKenzie – Married

Joy.

Pure joy.  There are simply no other words to describe Logan and MacKenzie’s wedding day.  Every minute of it was radiating with excitement.  These two were in love and thrilled to marry each other….and you could tell.

It was so obvious that care and love had been poured into every detail of this wedding and it was an honor to be able to help capture it.

Enjoy a little peek into Logan and MacKenzie’s big day:



   

Caroline + Kaitlyn Senior Session

When these gals asked me about doing a joint senior session, I couldn’t be more thrilled.  I’ve know Caroline for years and meeting Kaitlyn was like hanging out with an old friend.  I had a blast getting to explore with these two and hear all about their exciting plans for the future.  They were total troopers; when our original location fell through, they rolled with a last minute-change of plans and were even down to hop over creeks and traipse through fields in high-heels.  Not to mention their modeling skills were spot on…obviously.

Enjoy my favorites of these beautiful friends!

There’s no telling what I might ask you to do during a shoot….like recreate American Gothic by Grant Wood for example.  After laughing at my craziness, though, I think Caroline and Kaitlyn totally nailed it. 😉

The Honeycutt Family

The Honeycutts are just the best.  Not only were they total naturals in from of the camera, they were naturals at loving on each other.  As I was busy photographing one person I would turn around to find Timmy bear-hugging someone or Ronnie and Adrienne sneaking a kiss.  They were genuinely loving one another, not because the camera was pointed at them, but because that’s just how they roll.  It was a such a joy to capture this sweet family!  Enjoy my favorites from their session:

Mark and Jordan – Maternity Session

I’ve known Mark ever since he was about 12 years old and now here he is, married to the lovely Jordan (who is just awesome) and expecting their first child!    I’ve decided that watching your friends grow up and start families of their own is pretty much the coolest thing ever.  I am so excited that I got to be a small part of documenting their journey.

I had such a blast capturing Mark and Jordan together!  Not only are these two basically models, they are also devoted to one another and to the Lord.  Just by talking to them for a few minutes, the love that they have for God is so evident and is a blessing to witness.  Enjoy a few of my favorites of this beautiful couple!

This girl right here.  She is STUNNING!  Motherhood suits her, don’t you think? 

I loved all of the little props that Jordan brought along to incorporate into their session!  One of my favorites was this book.  These guys literally sat in the park and read aloud to their baby about the goodness of God.  Cue the happy tears.
 

Aja – Portraits

Last winter at a basketball game I met a delightful, enthusiastic woman.  When I told her about my photography, she immediately responded with, “My granddaughter is a photographer!  You have to meet my granddaughter!” and proceeded to introduce Aja.  Since that fateful day Aja and I have had many long conversations about photography + business, and I have had the privilege of second shooting multiple weddings with her.  She is absolutely the sweetest person and I had the best time grabbing these shots with her; so much fun and laughter.  🙂

Enjoy my favorites!

 

The Pressleys – Historic Johnson Farm Family Session

This was my last session of the year and, boy, what a shoot to wrap up with!  It was fantastic, to say the least.  Faye and Rodney have been our neighbors for 4 years now and it was so fun getting to meet their sweet family.  From the people to the location to those awesome color choices, everything about this shoot was wonderful.

 

The Metzger Family

You might remember these guys from Matt and Samantha’s maternity session (here).  I was over the moon excited when we got the announcement that little Scarlet had arrived and even more excited when Samantha contacted me for family photos!  I had such a wonderful time hanging out with this sweet family and capturing them with their precious new addition.  Even though it rained on the day of their shoot, they rolled with the punches and I am thrilled with the images we got.  Enjoy!

 

Based on personal experience, I’ve always said every girl needs an older brother.  I’d say this little lady is all set with two who adore her. 🙂

Vivienne – Six Month Portraits

“I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

Wonderful are Your works; my soul knows it very well.”

Psalm 139:14

 

I had such a great time a few weeks ago pulling together this impromptu mini-session with my cousin and his daughter.  Truly, the Lord’s works are wonderful and Vivienne is no exception.  Enjoy oohing and ahing over her incredibly adorable self.

True to form, Adam had to cut up for at least one photo.  It would seem that this guy’s fun personality can’t be contained and it simply wouldn’t be a cousin photo shoot without it! 🙂     

THOSE EYES.

 

This precious smile gets me every time.  I’m telling you; fearfully and wonderfully made.  God’s creation is so incredible!
