Mommy & Me-Erin

I was lucky enough to meet Erin 2 summers ago when her family moved back to Kentucky and I not only found a sweet family but a good friend. Brooks just loves Nora and even though I wish it could happen more often I still love when I’m in Kentucky and we are able to schedule a play date.

Mommy and me sessions hold a special place in my heart. All too often mamas are the ones taking the photos, which means they aren’t ever in the images. Not only are these precious memories of time with their little ones (who we all know don’t stay little for long!) but also memories for their children to cherish. How many of us wish we had more photos with our parents and grandparents? It is so important, even though most mamas are reluctant to get in front of the camera, for our kids to capture those cuddles and kisses.

Our newest addition!

 

I have been a bit quiet for a while but with good reason-welcome to the world Brie Evelyn Calhoun! We welcomed our sweet girl into the world on February 5th at 10:12pm weighing 7lbs 3oz. To say we are our enamored would be an understatement.

I’ll never forget hugging Brooks so tightly and telling him how much I loved him before we walked out the front door to go to the hospital. It is so hard to explain how it felt to hug him knowing it was the last hug and moments of him as my only child. I wanted to stay right in that spot an in that moment for as long as I could.

Brie was in a hurry to make her entrance because we arrived at the hospital just before 7 and within 3 hours she was in our arms. The only moment that was better than her arrival was watching Brooks walk into the room the next morning with the widest eyes, so full of love and excitement to finally meet ‘Angel’ and hold her.

God is so amazing. I am still blown away that He has entrusted TC and I with two amazing children. I pray that He covers our family with grace as we grow together and I learn how to becoming a mom to two!

Muncy Family

 

When an adorable family invites you to their beautiful farm for a sunrise session the answer will always be YES!  The morning couldn’t have been more perfect.   Between the light and the laughs I had a blast working with the Muncy family. If you didn’t already know it Cheryl runs her own business-Newfangled Clothing CO. She makes the most adorable vintage inspired clothes for kids. You have got to check it out.

Muncie Family

 

When I first photographed Eric and Chelsee it was for their maternity session last year. It was beautiful sunrise session full of a pink fog over the water. It was perfect since they were expecting sweet Adley to join their family soon.  Fast forward to their session just over week ago and we plan for another sunrise session. When I woke up the fog was so thick I couldn’t see anything and I wondered if it would be too thick for the session, you could barely even see the sun coming up. I almost suggested we wait until it cleared a bit but I am so glad we didn’t.

 

Adley was giving me the best faces. It is always amazing to capture a child during their newborn session, fuzzy shoulders and sleepy moments,  and then see them a year later when they are coming into their own personality. Adley was born with a clef lip and it is incredible to see her journey since her birth until now. You should check out the blog her mom has created to follow along on her story

Adley has another surgery coming up in a few weeks so please keep them in your prayers. She has the sweetest little smile and I cannot wait until I get to see it again.
