Leffew Kids


It was my pleasure to go to the Leffew house and photograph these beautiful children.  It was easy to capture their natural smiles. Ethan was a big cheeser in front of the camera and miss Lillie posed herself.  Nathan enjoyed telling me how he was playing a video game with Ethan and kept killing Ethan’s character.  Nathan had convinced Ethan that it was the game that kept killing Ethan’s character.  Nathan laughed telling me such a silly story.  It was very easy to connect with these children, they were such sweethearts!

It was great to meet these lovely children!!  And, it was wonderful capturing but a moment of their childhood.


Jackson Family Adoption


I absolutely love this family!!!  After having baby Christian in their home for 8 months the adoption was finalized yesterday, November 24, 2015.  It was a very emotional moment for everyone in the courtroom.  I was honored to be able to be there to capture such a momentous occasion.  Brianna, Jermaine and big brother Caleb hold a special place in my heart, I admire their willingness to love anyone and everyone.  We could all learn something from this beautiful family.

I wish them nothing but happiness and love.  Congratulations Jackson family!!!  I am so very happy for all of you.

Toby’s 3 Month





Toby is 3 months old already.  It was so exciting to take his photos and to see how much he has grown in 3 short months.  I love taking newborn photos, it’s amazing how these little people grow so much in such a short time.

My husband Nate is holding Toby in the third photo.  This photo shows how much love a father has for his child and how much a child needs to be comforted and cared for.

Please contact me for any questions you may have about newborn photography sessions!!

Wilder Family!!!




It was so much fun photographing this family.  Sweet Brylee and her new brother Harrison stole the floor.  These two were awesome!! My favorite part about this photo session was how at ease they all were being at home.  We were able to take breaks, and with Brylee being so young mom and dad didn’t have to worry about her since they were at home.  It was such a joy and pleasure to be a part of this family and to capture such an amazing time in their lives.

One of my dreams was to do a military newborn photo shoot and my dream came true.  I thoroughly enjoyed the military and baseball themes for the newborn session.  Baby Harrison was a dream, he will steal your heart!
