Baby Teagan

Blakely had reached out to me pretty last minute in hopes that I would have a spot opened for a birth since her original photographer was unable to be in town. From the beginning of our conversation, it was a definite yes!! Baby Teagan was perfect in every way. She came out with plenty of hair and a long, skinny body.

Every time I’m able to be apart of a birth where it is the family’s first baby, I am so stoked to be apart of that experience. There is nothing like your first! I personally have a little girl, so something about a birth with a baby girl is so special for me to witness every time. Seeing the dad with his little girl is forever my favorite part!

Baby Shiloh

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it a million times— I LOVE in-home newborn sessions! I love to see a family bond in the comfort of their home. I love seeing how a mama decides to decorate her baby’s nursery. I love when there are siblings or family pets involved that are excited about the new arrival. Being apart of a newborn session never gets old!

Baby Shiloh was three weeks old when I did his session. His parents raved about how calm of a baby he was, and that was definitely the truth!! He didn’t make so much as a coo the whole shoot and he was super comfortable and calm the whole time— not to mention he is stinkin’ cute! I loved capturing his sweet presence and I was even lucky to do it again at a family session the other day. He is precious!!

I always encourage my clients to take the time to do whatever they need to do to make their little ones comfortable. It is never a hassle to take a breast feeding break or a cuddle break! We would rather have a happy, content baby than a baby that is wanting his needs met. I try to keep these sessions laid back and as relaxed as possible! It always gets the best captures and the baby is happier!

Baby Lennon

Hi there! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve done a blog post, I know I need to be more consistent about it! I’m trying to make it a goal to blog once a week (I’m pretty sure I say this every post) but we will see how it goes.

I wanted to share a handful of images from one of my favorite births I’ve done. Baby Lennon was born in the middle of the night, and she came out with a few pushes! Her mom Jasmine had called me out of a dead sleep and I was so thankful I made it on time. She was so sweet, cuddly and small. I have loved every bit of seeing her grow since then!!

I love middle of the night births. Something about the adrenaline rush and seeing people so eager at 3 AM is my kinda party! I am such a morning person, but I didn’t realize that entailed 2-5 AM as well! One thing that moms always apologize for and worry about is waking me up, but it’s something I signed up for and don’t mind at all. I feel so lucky to be apart of the biggest day in people’s lives. It’s something I will never take for granted!

Kepner Boys

These two boys have my heart from the 2 hours I spent with them. Seriously. They are the sweetest little red-headed guys, and their mom is equally as amazing. This shoot was to die for, and I’m so thankful I get to share about it!!

When Chloe told me she wanted an in-home session of her and her boys, I was absolutely stoked! Newborn lifestyle sessions are some of my absolute favorites to shoot. To add on top of that, Chloe’s house is as pretty as can be and these brothers love each other. It was the most pleasant experience. After Chloe and I got to chatting, we realized we have a lot more in common than we realized! From people we know, to places we’ve lived and friends we shared, I realized it’s such a small world! I love connecting with clients and becoming friends. It’s one of my favorite things about this job. My husband always jokes with me about the long list of friends I make, but I genuinely love connecting with others and creating relationships.

Here are some absolute favorites from this shoot. It definitely wasn’t hard to find beauty in this session when Chloe keeps a gorgeous house! I need tips… So Chloe, if you’re reading this. Give me ALL the tips!! You’re a superwoman.

Stone's Birth

I don’t think I can hold back my excitement about my endeavors with birth photography! I have been dreaming of doing birth photography for a long time, and I finally made it happen. There was so much doubt I had surrounding this new adventure, but I felt so strongly it was what I needed to do next for my little business.

Sydnee reached out to me when I had seen on a post that she was in need of a birth photographer, and I commented as quickly as I possibly could letting her know that I’d be willing to do it for free! I really didn’t care if she called me at 2 AM.. I wanted to be there. This sweet couple had been praying for a baby for years, and it meant everything that I was able to be apart of this experience. Little guy came as quick as he could, and Syd was amazing! She was so calm and collected. I was a wreck while I was giving birth, so I could not wrap my head around how great she did!! With one push, Baby Stone was out and absolutely perfect.

I fell in love with birth photography. My husband said he hadn’t seen me this excited over my work in a long time! It’s totally different than couples photography, but it brings a feeling that I’ll never forget. You seriously can feel their fresh new spirits as soon as they are out! It simply reminds me of how precious life is. It makes me want to squeeze Vivienne a little tighter, and to appreciate motherhood that much more! We are amazing as women, and our bodies are truly incredible! If you ever get invited to see someone else give birth, I highly recommend you take them up on the offer. You’ll leave the experience feeling blessed that we get to be apart of this thing called life.

Also, I feel like there’s nothing more beautiful than B&W birth photos.
