Twins {L} and {C} were born!

Welcome to the world...

Having a baby will change your life. Well, try having 2! This wonderful family, who already had one little one running around, just had 2 amazing little ones to add to the bunch. 
My cuddles were in overdrive with this session. It was heaven on earth to be able to snuggle with them all day, and even get mommy and daddy into the mix.

They are as little as they look and smaller. I loved the little features. 

Their little heads are smaller than your hands...

And look at this gorgeous mama who just had babies!!!

And I love that they got into the photos and made them so much more wonderful...

Thank you again guys for letting me love on your little ones for the day. 
And a big thank you to my wonderful assistant for the day who I would not have been able to do anything without. Thanks again Jenna.

Inspiration comes from everywhere!

I get inspired...

I get inspired by many things, and I try to see what inspiration can come from different things. I get inspired by people, places I see, others photography, and even something simple like a piece of fabric. It motivates me to grow and expand my thinking of photography into an art. But inspiration is sometimes hard to find. I have been struggling lately with inspiration and comparing myself to others who are 'getting more clients', 'posting ALL THE TIME', 'growing their businesses', 'creating unique brands' and just doing everything that I am not. I tend to dwell on the fact that others are making it, and I can't seem to get anyone to want me to take their photos.

Growing A Business

Business time...

Growing a business is always a bit nerve racking. There are so many variables, and so many choices you make as business owners hoping you don't regret them in the end.

Baby {A} Is Born

Baby {A} {Newborn}

I love newborns and I am so excited to introduce you all to this little guy.
He is 7 days new and it was such a joy to be able to hold him and snuggle this little cutie. I told his mommy that it was a good thing I was already having one, cause it gave me big time baby fever to hold him and smell that sweet baby smell.
Just look at all this adorableness...

Micah and Taylor Got Married...

Micah and Taylor {Married}

I have known Micah and Taylor for a while. Since they were in high school as a matter of fact and their love story warms my heart. It's one of patience and God's timing. You see their love radiating as they stare at each other, and you can't help but get swept away with it. They are wonderful children of Christ and in following His will for their lives they were led back to each other after high school.

They are beautiful together and it is so wonderful to watch...

Richard and Becky are having a baby!

Richard and Becky {Maternity}

Our sessions don't always go as planned, so being able to spend two who days with them, only made it sweeter. I loved these two and they were so fun to work with.
I loved hearing about baby Aaron, and how anxious his parents are to meet him. Even with the rain we had that stalled our first session, these two made it through and I enjoyed watching them make each other laugh. They are the sweetest, and I am so excited to photograph this little newborn when he makes his arrival soon.

Sydney turned 3!

Crazy Party days...

Well, our oldest turned 3 and I can't believe how fast the time has gone. I have been treasuring each moment of her life since she was born. She is the sweetest and is so generous to her little brother. The best part was seeing her face light up when she saw all the decorations and bubbles. We had a bubble party and she had a blast.

Joshua and Jennifer Got Married...

Joshua and Jennifer {Married}

I am in love with this wedding! They are so in love and it was visible all throughout the day. This was such an amazing day. I spent the whole day with them, and it was so memorable for me. All the little details of their wedding made it that much more special. This wedding was full of laughter and joy, and it's warms your heart to be around the two of them.

Chris and Jenna Got Married...

Chris and Jenna {Married}

This blog post is special to my heart for more than the photography. I had the pleasure of being able to shoot my sisters wedding. One of the moments in life that you treasure and are sure to never forget. She was stunning on the day and she radiated all day long.
When she walked down the isle to Chris, it was magical. All the elements had come together and there they were, finally saying "I do".

5 Hard Lessons Learned...

Lessons Learned so you don't have to make the mistakes.

Well, I will start off by saying, I am not a seasoned professional and I will probably have many more posts like this one to pass on before I feel even the slightest bit comfortable with the word 'professional'. We started this company for the passion of photography. Because somewhere deep inside we thought our passion was going to keep us going. Well, here we are 4 years later, and we are still learning the hard way.

Kyle and Michelle Got Married...

Kyle and Michelle {Married}

I have known them both for all of about 3 days now after second shooting their wedding and it was a spectacular wedding. I couldn't have asked for a better sunset with all the lighting. They made taking their photos so much fun and inspirational. 
You both make me smile...

The Hiatus

The BIG Plan

The longest hiatus I have taken from photography yet. Don't get me wrong, I still took a ton of photos, but they weren't sessions for clients they were for my family and helped me get back to understanding who I am as a photographer.
