Cameron & Lincoln {joy}

The most handsome nephews one could have--Cameron at three years old and full of such personality, and Lincoln at six months old and the happiest and most content baby ever! I love how these photos capture their little personalities and quirks (including Cameron cleaning not only his own toes but Lincoln's too) :)

This series of photos still makes me laugh...and see what I mean about Lincoln being the most content baby ever?! Takes it all in stride...

Yes, an elephant's trunk can always make a good microphone :)


Love the bow tie and suspenders that Lincoln is wearing! Check out Scarlett Claire for much much more of these adorable baby accessories!

Getting ready for a little Valentine's Day party...

Mikaela & Steve {awaiting}

I always love the smiles and fun that little ones add to a session! While this was a snowy maternity session (that the snow did not seem to want to stay around for!), Mikaela and Steve's little guy had to steal the show for at least a few photos :) After all, he is the handsome big brother! Can't wait to meet your little one soon--but not too soon! Enjoy :)

Love love love this candid family moment!

Carter Jameson {new life}

Spent a fun morning with this handsome little man and his mommy--he might have made us work a bit until he decided he was ready to sleep, but I love how this session turned out! He was clearly so content in his mommy's arms, and I love how these images capture that! Jodi and Dale, thank you so much for getting in touch and trusting me with your new little guy!

Love the initial that Jodi suggested incorporating into the shots below!

Reynolds Extended Family {joy}

Spent a very cold morning with this family recently! They all were able to make this date work in their schedules, and we definitely needed an indoor backup location with the recent cold temperatures! I love the character of the building as well as the large windows streaming in the beautiful morning sunlight!

And another grandparents shot for the win... :)


Peyton Ann {new life}

Another precious newborn...I love the combination of candid/lifestyle moments captured here along with the traditional "posed" images! This little lady was just a bit older but she still was willing to sleep early on in the session for us. She may have wanted to take all the excitement in a little later on, but finally gave in again at the very end :) Either way, I love the bond captured between her and her mommy and daddy in these images! Thank you, Adrienne and Jeremy, for trusting me with your most perfect little lady!

Grayson Craig {new life}

Such a handsome little guy and such a loving big sister--these two (as well as mom and dad!) were so much fun to hang out with! Big sister is full of spunk and personality, and she clearly is going to take such good care of little brother! Brittney and Steve, thank you for the privilege of spending the morning with your sweet little family of FOUR and preserving these precious memories for you <3

Julie & Aaron {awaiting}

Spent a (chilly!) morning with the most amazing sunlight with this couple a few weeks ago. This location is amazing--morning or evening the light is just perfect! Julie and Aaron, thank you for asking me to document this special time for you, and I cannot wait to meet your little one in just a few weeks!

Brown Extended Family {joy}

I had such a fun morning with this lovely family! Everyone was in town over Christmas and was even able to coordinate schedules at the last minute to move the session up a day so that we could do this outdoors at this beautiful location (thank you again for your flexibility!). Lots of amazing and wonderful people in the coming photos...

Brothers :)


Grandparents shot--it may have taken a little work but I think it's a winner!

"We love Uncle Travis!"

And Aunt Abbey and Uncle Brad!

jessica & matthew {devotion}

When the evening and location look like this, it has to be a good session! I met Jessica at the hospital (this lovely lady introduced us) and she is such a cheerful person, so full of smiles. And Matthew, well he is one great guy! He and Jessica live two and a half hours apart right now, and he drove that distance the afternoon of the session to meet us in Lancaster for photos. This first location we used for these Jessica had noticed several days before the session and suggested using it in some photos, and I love how they turned out!

Jessica and Matthew, thank you so much for asking me to capture these images for you! You both were so much fun to spend the evening with, and I hope you are as happy with these shots as I am! Enjoy all the wedding planning :)

There is just nothing that compares to the colors and glowing light in the fall! One of my favorites from Jessica and Matthew's session below...

Gooding Extended Family

It's been a little while since I have blogged some recent sessions but this is a good one to start back with! We had a cool October evening full of beautiful sunlight and lots of grandkids :) Meet the Gooding family...

And side note--can you believe how much little Ella has grown since just two months ago?! What a cutie!

One of my favorites below...

Love mom and dad's smiles in the background of this next one!

Large groups certainly require some effort to get everyone looking at the camera, smiling, eyes open, and on and on. However, sometimes I like the shots that aren't "perfect" like the one below; I just love Grandma's smile as she looks down at her grandson :)

We had to get a few smiles out of the handsome little man before we were finished!
