LIFESTYLE NEWBORN SESSION | BABY LEVI

If you know us even a little, you know that Brian and I are suckers for a good miracle baby 😉 We have one ourselves, and the opportunity to photograph our friends and long-time clients’ with their own, brand-new miracle baby was just too much to pass up. Josh and Linsey hired us to photograph their wedding very early in our business. Since then, they’ve sent us more friends and family than we can keep count of. They’ve been some of our biggest fans and supporters over the years, and our joy for their newest addition more than doubled when Linsey filled us in on how miraculous this pregnancy was! After having their first son, Asher, very easily, Josh and Linsey tried for a long time to have a second baby. Testing revealed that one of Linsey’s fallopian tubes was actually blocked, cutting their chances for conception in half. Josh and Linsey began praying growth over their family through a “fulfilled” exercised led by Elevation Church. Shortly after receiving those discouraging test results, Linsey began going into the doctors’ office for ultrasounds each month to see if her egg would be descending from the un-blocked tube. Just a couple of weeks after being told not to bother trying to conceive that month because an egg was stuck in the blocked tube, Linsey got a positive result on a home pregnancy test! Under the circumstances, her doctors feared the pregnancy would be ectopic. But the ultrasound showed the baby growing perfectly, and in the perfect spot! The fact that Baby Levi was conceived that month was truly a miracle! We admire the faith that Josh and Linsey had that the pull on their hearts to grow their family was from the Lord. They have been so faithful in sharing their story and attributing Levi’s life to God’s power, and we could not be more ecstatic for them as they settle in to life as a family of four! Enjoy a few of our favorites from Baby Levi’s home lifestyle session!

LIFESTYLE NEWBORN SESSION | BABY WILL

Are there words to describe the joy I feel when I get to follow a couple from their engagement session all the way to newborn and family portraits? Probably not 🙂  Craig “Pete” and Megan were married a little over a year ago, and just welcomed their first little one into the world a couple of weeks ago! Baby Will is already so loved… his vintage crib was his mother’s when she was a baby. Family members gifted him with an adorable wooden wagon he loves to nap in, a vintage rocking horse and a little cow WubaNub to honor his daddy, who runs a dairy farm! We had such a sweet time getting to meet Baby Will and watch his parents dote on him. Enjoy a few of our favorites from his lifestyle newborn session!

RUSTIC ROAN MOUNTAIN WEDDING IN TENNESSEE | KEVIN + ALEXA

Kevin and Alexa’s wedding was a dream. It was a very cold, windy dream 😉 But I would rather re-live that feeling where I truly believe my fingers will fall off of my hands again and again if we could also re-live the love that took place that day. Friends and family gathered in Roan Mountain, TN for a relaxed, fun weekend with the couple and their bridal party. Guests stood and watched the ceremony from a distance as Kevin, Alexa and their bridesmaids and groomsmen stood on an overlook with the Tennessee mountain landscape. Vows were exchanged in the chilly mountain air, and the laid-back celebration was held at a nearby cabin. Not a moment went by that wasn’t heavy with genuine happiness from all in attendance! Enjoy a few of our favorites below from Kevin and Alexa’s rustic Roan Mountain wedding day!
