The sweet Williams family had me over to photograph their beautiful family in their beautiful new home! It was such a delight to meet them and capture their adorable baby girl Regan, right before her first Christmas. We captured some sweet shots of Regan playing in the living room and showing off her new trick (cruising from couch to coffee table), reading books in her nursery and snuggling with Mommy, Daddy and their dog Remmy! Regan may or may not have fallen asleep as we tried to get one Holiday card shot in front of the fireplace, but all in all I’d say she rocked her first lifestyle session and the images turned out amazing! Enjoy a few of our favorites from the Williams family’s lifestyle session.


A few weeks ago, we had the honor of photographing some former wedding clients, Jen and Jon and their sweet little family at their home. They had just welcomed Baby Bryce into the world! Bryce’s big sister Braelynn was so excited to show off her baby brother, and we got some adorable shots of their new lives as a family of four in their beautiful home (and Bryce’s sweet lumberjack nursery)! Enjoy a few of our favorites from Baby Bryce’s lifestyle newborn session!


One of my favorite things about being a wedding + lifestyle photographer is getting to be a part of multiple milestones in the life of a family: capturing engagement portraits, documenting the marriage taking place on a wedding day, and then a little ways down the road, the joy of expanding their family as they bring home their first baby! Another one of my favorite things is getting to do all of this for people we love so dearly. Joel and Kayla are clients-turned-friends, whose engagement session and wedding we did in 2013 and 2014, before we were even parents ourselves! As members of the same church, we became involved in the same community group and have so enjoyed doing life with these two over the last few years. They even modeled for me for our nationally-published Christmas Romance styled shoot (cleverly hiding Kayla’s tiny baby-bump behind that gorgeous bouquet).  Their joy was our joy when they told us that they were expecting their first baby, and Kayla and I got pretty excited to force… ahem, encourage… best-friendship on our children when she and Joel found out they were expecting a girl! And I’m not gonna lie, it was nice to know that it was ok to bring Violet with me to their newborn session, even if Violet did insist upon arriving back home that SHE was, in-fact, the real baby 😉 Enjoy some of our favorites of the Bowen’s in-home lifestyle newborn session with their precious new addition Lydia Wren (and for those of you who know them well, yes… Winston makes an appearance in this post).




And for your viewing pleasure… I present to you: Violet, enjoying being the fifth-wheel.
