What a pleasure to be a part of someone’s life in the most memorable times. This family reached out for a maternity session last summer and we clicked immediately — I laughed so hard during their Maternity Session and found myself laughing at random times over the next few days just remembering silly moments. I couldn’t wait to see them again.
My next meeting with them would be at the hospital for Coleman’s Fresh 48 Hospital Session. Man oh man, this little boy was striking at less than 48 hours old! Those dimples —- and he didn’t get them from Mom or Dad, he was just blessed by them!
So, when they arrived for his newborn session, I couldn’t wait to hang out again! Coleman was perfect!
We incorporated some of Dad’s favorite hunting items, including a special set of antlers. I loved Coleman’s custom made “Coleman” hat, which he also wore at the hospital.
Spending time together with families over multiple sessions is nothing short of awesome. I love getting to know people and the relationship just naturally unfolds. I cannot wait to watch this little boy grow!
Thank you for trusting me!

Oh Lucca was full of smiles and tons of chubbiness for his session with me. I can’t believe how much he has changed. The amount they grow in just only 3 months never ceases to amaze me. They start to emerge with their little personalities and curiosity. I love that I get to be a part of capturing these sweet milestones for so many wonderful people. Lucca got tired at the end of this session, I took advantage and we took some super sweet sleeping photos. Those little curled up hands, long lashes and that little peaceful face. I hope they cherish these for a lifetime!
Elyse’s momma and I spent several years working together as nurses before Jamie started having babies. Actually, we have known each other for quite a few years. We go back to the “Yellow Mustang Days” as Jamie and I would call them…..
Now, it’s pampers and mini vans and we wouldn’t change it for the world.
So, let’s talk about Elyse. Isn’t she just gorgeous?! And her big brother is CLEARLY in love with her! How sweet is he?!
Elyse is one special baby. She is what they call a Rainbow Baby. It is a term used to describe a baby that is born following a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss.
“In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope. The rainbow is more appreciated having just experienced the storm in comparison.
The storm (pregnancy loss) has already happened and nothing can change that experience. Storm-clouds might still be overhead as the family continue to cope with the loss, but something colorful and bright has emerged from the darkness and misery.”
Not only has Jamie’s family lost a baby, but they have weathered multiple other tragedies that left them feeling helpless and lost.
Through it all, their faith never wavered and God prevailed as He always promises to.
They, indeed, have braved quite some storms in their time as a family, but God gave them their long awaited rainbow.
So happy for you all!
Why are all my newborns turning one? Time goes by so fast with these little ones.
I loved Kambri’s session. She was so smiley, running all over and giggling at everything. I love the way she looks at her mom and dad with such adoration. That….is unconditional love.
I love watching families grow and love one another. We had a gorgeous night with this three. A perfect sunset, cool breeze and a beautiful family.
Happy Birthday, Kambri.
Love getting to see this sweet little family. I have been photographing Shelby since she was brand new and now she is 2! Where does time go with this little ones?
I always love a good Mom and Me Session. There is nothing better than giving your children the gift of photographs and memories when they are older. We as mothers are always so busy taking care of everyone, worrying about everything, and being critical of ourselves that we forget or even avoid having these moments captured. These are the things your children will remember.
Sign up for your session today so you can freeze these moments in time and have something to pass down to your children when they are older.
McKenna is one of the happiest little girls I know. Although very shy, we have bonded over the years and I am very proud to say we are buddies and have fun together!! Her smile will warm up any room!
Mr. Griffin, his big blue eyes and sweet, chubby cheeks are to die for. I love his little grin and his little dimple poking through! He is 6 months old….where did the time go?!
Charlotte’s 1 year session was just as much fun as every other session we have had with her. She is such a ham and has so many funny and adorable facial expressions. She wouldn’t leave the blanket, as she hates grass…..but all this did was make my job a bit easier!
And how about those kitty jeans?! Adorable, right?!
