Oh hi!

Ready for the photos of your dreams?

get in touch

I'd love to get to know you better!  Feel free to drop me a note anytime!

Well, today is just one more opportunity to share about how much I love walking through seasons with clients.  You must recognize this sweet couple by now if you follow on Instagram.

I photographed their wedding portraits after eloping in 2016.  I photographed their maternity session in 2017 which I am sharing today.  And! I have newborn photos for 2018 to share with you tomorrow!!  Thats three years with these sweet people, three new seasons of life, and one happy photographer that gets a little emotional thinking about the trust that clients like this place in me to capture the most intimate times of their lives.

This baby was one covered in prayer for so, so long even before Tollie became pregnant.  It’s hard to understand the plan that God has for our lives sometimes, but Tollie and Phillip still remained strong through so many difficult seasons.  It’s such a gift to photograph any pregnancy, but to photograph a miracle that was preceded with so much heartache, now thats something that tugs at my heartstrings even harder.

I have so many beautiful favorites from their maternity session.  Tollie is gorgeous with that signature smile that is forever so genuine, her baby bump is the sweetest, and Phillip was his usual joking self making Tollie laugh the entire afternoon and gladly accepting breaks between shots!  It never feels like work when I am with them, but always feels like old friends catching up!

My favorites from their session are below!  Take a peek and come back tomorrow to meet their son as I share their newborn and family photos!!

I believe that getting to know my clients is the best way to deliver photographs that look and feel true to who you are.  You're not just hiring a vendor, you'll be working with someone that really cares!
