We shot Jason and Liz's Tabrizi wedding in 2015, which is crazy to think because of how time flies. When Liz reached out to me and shared with us that they are expecting this March, we were so excited that they wanted maternity and newborn pictures done! Photographing our past couples and seeing their families grow is probably one of the reasons that keeps me passionate about my job because I just feel so honored that our clients come back to us, years later, and include them in more of their pivotal and monumental moments in life.Read More
Maternity & Newborn
Zeke turns 5 months old today. I still can’t believe he’s ours. He’s found his toes (so much so he eats them), he’s rolling over, and giggling. We love him so.
A lot of people continue to ask me questions about my delivery, my pregnancy, and so I decided it was time to share about it and wanted to share it through pictures too.Read More
Last year, I was asked to photography a baby shower for the amazing Stephanie Bradshaw. She’s a local luxury wedding and event planner. The shower was hosted by one of her dear friends, Christina. I met Christina that day and little did I know that a year later, I would be doing her maternity pics!Read More
So even though I’m a wedding photographer, I LOVE organizing and hosting events, and of course designing them too. I joined a group of ladies and hosted a beautiful baby shower for my sister-in-law for 40 women. It was themed just like Lauren’s maternity session with sunflowers, but my mom and I decided it would be a great idea to weave in their nursery. Chevron and Baby Elephants!Read More
I am so so excited to share this post. This is a post of joy found and God’s faithfulness in my family.
Meet Zach and Lauren. This is my little (not so little) brother and his amazing wife, my sister-in-law Lauren. And they are an IVF success story.Read More
When your best friend has a 1 year old (almost) and asks you to do a cake smash, you do it. Not because you feel obligated, because you love that little girl to cake pieces! We had literally 10 minutes before a storm blew in, and Ella took her sweet time... not sure if it was "OK" to get so messy and eat the whole thing by herself!! Her sweet little eyes, smiles, and of course, her desire to share the whole time. Oh, and then she decides to climb you. Happy First Birthday Ella! Can't believe you're ONE!!Read More
Many of you received our announcement email when we shared our exciting news. Many of you found out on Facebook or Instagram! Or some of you through my mom haha. Patrick and I are so excited to share that we are expecting a little baby in April 2017. We found out in July and decided to wait until our 3rd year wedding Anniversary (just a week ago) to share our news with the world. (Really it’s because Maggie wanted to wait until she was showing… opps). We had to keep it a secret for 4.5 months! Next time, no way. It was so hard not to tell people, but alas we did.
We decided it would be really fun to do a “lead up” with a total of three images to share leading up to our announcement on our wedding anniversary.Read More
When you are pregnant, I have to say it's pretty awesome to be able to hold and see your friends with their little ones as well. When my good friend Nicole, who I know from shooting weddings and events at Turf Valley, asked me to come photograph their new addition, I was so excited. Lately I've been doing a lot more maternity and newborn than I normally do because we specialize in weddings, not little people. However, what a sweet treat it is to photograph them. Nicole, thanks for trusting me with your little girl... she did so great!Read More
Ekk! I am so excited to share this maternity session. I've known Sarah since college, we were chaplains together at Oral Roberts University. After college, I moved home, met Patrick and got married. Sarah was one of my amazing bridesmaids. Soon after, Sarah got engaged to this amazing guy named Chris, and they asked Patrick and I to be their wedding photographers. Just a few months ago, Sarah and Chris moved to Columbia Maryland from Texas!!! And now they live 15 minutes from me! I still can't believe they are really here. Sarah and Chris are expecting a little one this December, just 4 weeks from now! So we HAD to do their maternity session and we were ecstatic!Read More
I'm so excited that I finally get to post this blog post! So my friends John and Deanna are expecting in January and I am so so thrilled for them. While John was away for work in Germany, Deanna and I snuck a maternity session at Jerusalem Mills in as a surprise to give to John over the holidays. My most favorite part of my time with Deanna was catching up on life (we've been friends since we were in high school attending the same youth group) and spending time with her little one, Perry. Oh my goodness is this little guy so sweet and yummy. Probably one of the most well behaved kids I've ever photographed!! He is genuinely sweet and boy does he love his mommy.Read More
