Happy 1st Birthday to Cohen!

September 29, 2014

This sweet baby boy has grown up so fast! It was just a year ago, that he first graced the lens of my camera and looked like this:

Would you look at this angel boy now? Oh, he just melts my heart. These two brothers are a JOY to photograph. I’m sad our year together has come to an end. Happy happy birthday to you, Cohen! Thank you to your Mom and Dad for sharing you and big brother Cole with me this last year. :)

Three boys are always such fun! These 3 were no exception and we had fun dodging mosquitoes that seemed to be the size of small animals! Oh my! Thanks for a  great session guys, and for keeping me laughing. What a precious and beautiful family this is. :)

Sweet angel girl! She is absolutely precious with these curls and big blue eyes! Melt my heart! Fun morning with this family! :) 

Lucas and family!

Awww, my word, y’all! I loved this session. What a precious family! This sweet husband and Daddy arranged for this photo session as anniversary gift for his beautiful wife. They are soon expecting to add a sweet little girl to their family, and wanted to have one last photo session with just their little family of 3. Lucas totally stole my heart, and I really do think I could have photographed his long lashes, adorable smile and blonde curls all day long-if he would’ve let me! :) So happy for this family and really enjoyed spending time with them. Beyond adorable! :)  Love, love, love these with Lucas and his Momma.  Those lashes, those curls!! Ahhh…

Lee is Sitting and Smiling!

This family-I just LOVE them! Sweet Lee is getting so big so fast. I can’t believe he is already crawling. And, so inquisitive about the world around him. What a gift these two boys are to my friends Abby and Michael. Always a joy photographing this crew! :)

Megan…Class of 2015

September 15, 2014

This beautiful lady blows me away! I’ve known Megan since she was a little girl, and have watched her grow up in front of my camera lens over the years. She is kind, sweet, and such a successful young lady. I’m so proud to know her. We had the best time wandering the streets of downtown Memphis last night and capturing a moment in time in her last year of high school. These are just a very small sampling of some of the fun we had. I had the worst time trying to pick favorites because there were so many! Best of luck to you, sweet Megan, at Ole Miss next year. The Rebels are getting a great one! Congratulations! :)

Katie, Class of 2015…

September 9, 2014

I have known this sweet girl for probably about 15 years, give or take. Katie was my neighbor at the very first house that my husband and I purchased soon after we were married, and I was able to watch her grow up playing outside on our street and in our yards for about 10 years. Thankfully, her parents kept in touch and have continued to come see me yearly for photo sessions. We’ve been talking about doing these senior portraits for the last couple of years, and I cannot believe how fast it has approached. I am so proud of your accomplishments, Katie! May God richly bless you in the future! Enjoy your senior year, sweet girl! Congratulations! Hello! Eyes that perfectly match the blue. Swoon!  I love this! Congratulations, Katie!!! :) 

There’s nothing like Family!

September 8, 2014

I had the most amazing FUN night with this great family last night in gorgeous downtown Memphis! The weather was starting to feel like Fall and these guys were just super relaxed and the most fun to hang out with. The kind of family that makes you feel immediately at home. Thank you so much, guys, for allowing me to capture your love for each other. There really is nothing like family! :) 

Years ago, in the time between my teaching career and my photography career , I had the most wonderful job at a private girls school in Memphis as an after-school care director. Besides this current path as a photographer, that job was by far the best I’ve ever had-mostly because of the relationships and friendships that developed during my time there. Harrison’s mom, Beth, worked for and with me at that wonderful job, and we’ve remained friends over the years and kept in touch. I am so honored that she took the trek across Tennessee this past week to come home to Memphis from Nashville so that I could photograph her gorgeous firstborn. I had the BEST time catching up with her and her husband and loving on this sweet and perfect baby boy. He is just adorable. Take a look for yourself-you’ll see! His eyes will just make you melt! Ahh! :) Thanks for sharing Harrison with me guys! What a gift he is!

Welcome, Peyton!

Miss Peyton-perfect and beyond beautiful! I have a special place in my heart for this amazingly gorgeous family and I’m so happy that they’ve got a new sweet little girl to join the joy that is their home. Peyton was such a good girl for her photo session, and big sister, Charley, did a great job, too considering she got a new baby sister and her 2-year-old birthday all within one week. Special times for a special family. I love you guys! Congratulations! She is perfect!
