The first sweet baby of 2016 was baby Autumn. She was total perfection for her newborn session with me. I think I only saw her little eyes once! Autumn has 3 older brothers that are going to watch over like a hawk when she get older. I loved her adorable little cheeks and how can you not love baby back rolls?

If you have been following my work for a while, you have probably noticed I don’t shoot that many weddings. Not because I don’t enjoy them. But just because at this moment in my life with two young girls I don’t feel like the timing is just right to go down that path and pursue wedding photography. I do however, love any chance I can get to photograph a beautiful bride and groom, along with perfectly set and designed reception tables, florals and all the little details that can make up to one stunning wedding!! The fabolous coordinators The Amburgey’s put together a perfectly stylized wedding and allowed other local fellow photographers to come and photograph it all. It was a great evening and way more laid back then a REAL wedding. But it was still fun to play “wedding photographer” with way less stress and get to connect with other photogs. I had so many favorite images from that evening it was hard to narrow them all down.

This whole shoot couldn’t have took place without all the wonderful vendors who donated their time and efforts for this! Please check out the list of the vendors at the bottom of the post along with some fun behind the scenes so you can get a glimpse into what it was like shooting with 30+ other talented photographers!!

Can’t get enough of this sweet girl!! Little Cayla just turned 2 yr old and is all smiles! She was a natural in front of my camera! She loved playing with my vintage stroller and brought along her mommies baby doll she had when she was a baby! She is super stylish as well! I loved all her outfits her mom and I put together!

Wow it was only a couple months ago I saw Miss Claire for her 9/10 month session!! She still has the most bubbly personality and makes the silliest faces around!! We always seem to have some short of difficulty when it comes to scheduling her sessions. Her recent 1 year session was supposed to be done outdoors but the day of her session it was freezing with light rain. We both didn’t want to reschedule since we already had done before so we moved it inside! I am always worried about studio sessions without a cake smash cause I am worried those little ones just won’t sit still long enough to get a a good amount of shots. Although it took lots of bribing, I was so happy at all the precious shots with got of little Claire and even snuck in a few holiday shots!!! Happy 1st Birthday sweetie!!

If you have ever seen the movie “What to Expect” then you would recall a scene in the movie where Wendy (Elizabeth Banks) and Janice (Rebel Wilson) are in her baby store and her new Step-mom wants in wearing heels, beautiful dress and full on pregnant with twins and Rebel Wilson’s character refers to her as the “magical pregnancy unicorn”. I would say that sums up how Chandis was for her maternity session! Steven & Chandis are so genuine and sweet, it was such a breeze shooting this session with them!! Chandis just radiates with a beautiful mama glow!! They were so easy to direct and pose, I would catch just so many sweet moments that they were creating on their own. A little kiss here and a little giggle there, they were just so natural. I loved everything about this session so so excited to meet sweet Evelyn when she arrives next month!
