A Break From Reality

Ellah and I just returned home from a nice long vacation to Texas! It was so so so nice getting away!! I felt like I was in a daze the entire time we were away which was a nice break from the craziness we're used too...even though I love that too :)! I loved spending time with my mom and sis and dad and little brother, home sweet home! Now that we're back it seems that there's so much to do and so little time but I had to post at least one picture from our trip right now with many more to come...

Kaitlyn's Senior Shoot

I don't know what more to say than I LOVED doing this shoot!! I loved Kaitlyn, I loved Kaitlyn's mom, I loved the colors, I loved the location, I loved how comfortable and perfect Kaitlyn was in front of the camera, everything worked out great! Kaitlyn is graduating this year which is a reminder to me of just how long ago I graduated (10 years ago this year wow!!)... She is so much fun, super spunky, been in cheer since the 7th grade, and do I even need to mention how beautiful she?! She's got the whole package plus some! Watch out guys, she's a real catch! I guess I'll stop and share some picture overload now...

Baby Davis

The best time to do a newborn shoot is within the first two weeks after the precious little babe is born and that is one reason I loved baby Davis's shoot so much! Little Davis is not even two weeks in these pictures and he was an amazing little model for the camera! I mean honestly, can you just not get enough of that hair or those little lips!? I left the session feeling like I needed to go back to his house to hold this little bundle again, he is absolutely a precious little thing. And he definitely got his good looks at such a young age from his parents! Oh I love doing newborn shoots...

Baby Cade

Taking pictures of handsome little Cade was so much fun and not just because he's a perfect, precious and beautiful new little guy but also because he is a cousin! His mom and I are cousins! This is Alicia and Ryan's first baby and let me tell you Alicia was one lucky gal! Her hubby was able to stay home with her for the first few weeks and with no worries of going into work!! What a great bonding experience for these 3! Can you imagine?! Alicia is such a caring and loving mom and Cade was such an easy little guy for this shoot! He is so darn strong already, I could hardly believe it! He can fully hold his head up when on his tummy and push himself, what?? it must be a boy thing? I wouldn't know...


One reason I love doing newborn shoots so much is because we usually do them in the clients home which means every shoot turns out a little different based on what we have to work with :). Isn't Cade's bedroom adorable?!




Check out that adorable dimple!

I woke up this morning to an inspiring email from my little sis. I wanted to share this with all of my incredibly creative and talented friends and women in my life. If you have just 2 minutes watch the link below and maybe you'll be inspired to start "creating" today too!

Curiosity

That's what you get when you mix a 15 month old with a new environment! A week or so ago I had the opportunity of photographing this beautiful little girl, Gracen (I just love that name!). Since doing photography I've never run into a child that hasn't liked me so much until Gracen. I think the camera coupled with me running around chasing her made me a little questionable in her eyes, I guess I would feel that way too with a complete stranger! In the end I think we came out with a great session and honestly I can't get over what a beautiful little girl Gracen is. And she has the most amazing blue eyes! The focus of the session was on this little gem but I just love this first family picture, it's one of my favorite from the session...

Mr. and Mrs. Killpack Married

A few weeks ago in March I had the opportunity of photographing the beautiful Mr. and Mrs. Killpack on their wedding day! The weather, the day, and the colors outside couldn't have been more perfect! They actually got married on Brian and I's anniversary and it brought back all memories of my wedding day.

Jenna's amazing make-up was done by Erin Nicole. Check out her blog! She does a beautiful job and is super friendly, sweet and fun!

And a few pictures...
