Y’all. Katie and Matt are just too much. Last year at some point, I was fortunate enough to be included in a new wedding package Silver Oaks was offering for February 2019 and from the first email Katie sent me, I knew I was just going to love her. She is the sweetest gal, with […]

So, like most content on my blog, this post is beyond overdue. Last May, I was given the wonderful opportunity to work with Jody at An Affair To Remember as a rental prep specialist – it’s a pretty sweet part time gig that keeps me busy and gets me out into the world and away […]

The internet is a beautiful and crazy thing – so often I think of this meme: The spirit of the above is how I got the wonderful opportunity to score this gig and meet the lovely Katie & Matt. Several months back, I saw a post on one of the photog groups of which I’m […]

Lots has changed since Felix, Meg and I went on our last adventure (for a recap, see here). He is now almost 16 months old (cue low key sobbing), has a bunch of teeth, an ever-widening spunky streak (this isn’t new, necessarily, just getting more defined on the daily) and a newfound love of all things […]

You’ve got to give it to her. My mother is good at MANY things, great at even more, but throwing a party is somewhere near the top of the list. She comes from a line of competent hostesses (my grandparents used to throw legendary New Year’s Eve bashes, Thanksgivings with like a billion people; all […]

Kate and Mike are just a dream. I knew it from the minute Kate emailed me – she sent me the sweetest note, ending with “is it bad to want to hire a wedding photographer because she is also a Harry Potter fan?” Obviously, I am biased and I think the answer is a resounding […]

Ugh I love this little human, I can’t say it enough. Le Day Job has been especially stressful recently, and Meg popped in last Friday to say hi, and managed to convince me to leave a little early since it was pretty quiet. The world was our oyster, that afternoon, despite torrential rain, and (though […]

These two. Sigh. Looking back at these photos, one whole year later (plus a couple weeks), it has changed my whole perspective on this shoot! In this last year, I’ve had the pleasure of watching them become parents to the wonderful Felix; good times, bad times, messy times (aka, most of the time) and everything in […]

Katey and Larry. Sigh, what adorable humans. This was one of those sessions that I just KNEW was going to be badass from the moment Katey contacted me. Katey and Larry are originally from Florida but have moved here and wanted to do engagement photos locally to use for their Save the Dates. Due to […]
