This baby bump session is extra special to me because this beautiful mama-to-be is my cousin. Kasey and Josh are expecting their very first baby boy in late May and I just couldn’t wait to get my lens on that belly! So many loving arms are waiting for the arrival of this sweet bundle of joy.
When I asked Rachel to say something to make Andrew laugh, she uttered “explosive diarrhea” without skipping a beat. Ok, it’s like that. And it worked – we all laughed. Except for Alexander who sat comfortably in his freshly changed outfit with a look of guilt across his face. What a sweet little laundry maker.
Rachel and Andrew invited me into their home to spend some time with them, their sweet dog, Foster, and their new baby boy, Alexander. I love love holding a session in someone’s home. I’ve been a guest in the Jenner house many times but never for the purpose of photography…and that changes things. I love seeing the way people live, unapologetically, on a day-to-day basis. I love the way coats rest and dish towels hang and blankets are tossed and plants bask in the sun. I love the smells. The sounds. The light. And on this particular occasion, the baby and his furry big brother were pretty easy on the eyes too.
The Roberts have the kind of love that’s contagious. Watching them interact with positive attitudes, genuine care and affection was inspiring. I left their session smiling on that cool crisp day. And those girls….future models! Ha! I’m just glad I got them in front of my lens before Hollywood finds them.
These two brothers have a unique relationship that swings from hugs to hits much the same as two tussling puppies: nipping and yapping with tail happily wagging. So full of joy and life! Prepare for many angles of their personalities as you scroll through our session below. I had just as much fun that day as they did!
This baby might be the cutest baby I’ve seen (…since my own two of course…) in real life. This kid’s got the look. I was thrilled to join Kelsey and Megan soon after the birth of their baby boy for some shots that will memorialize this tiny human and all his preciousness. What a gift he is and will continue to be.
This certainly didn’t feel like a photography job. I attended this wedding because my good friend, Lisa, was marrying her love, Jim. It was a small, intimate wedding in Lisa’s backyard barn, complete with the classiest chandelier I’ve seen in a barn to date. A wedding that required guests to shoot tequila before the ceremony began and when it ended. A wedding that left me relying on auto-focus with hopes to still capture clear images through tears of joy. Cheers to good friends and good times on sunny days. More please.
Holly is my friend and coworker so when she told me she was getting married I was so happy for her! I’ve passed by the United Methodist Church in Luray, Va so.many.times and when I found out it was the location of her wedding, I was excited to take a peek inside. Take a look at a wedding that was…fit for a King.
