Daniel Family // Fun-Loving Mini Session

What is better than snuggles, tickles and tackles? Honestly I’m not quite sure, because this mini session with the Daniel family was SO fun! We met so close to dark that daylight was almost gone, but we made the most of it, kept moving to keep ourselves warm and ended up with some fantastic images portraying the fun-loving family that they are.

I’ve known Ellis and Kerry for a while, but Blake, Anna and Clark were a treat to hang out with! Huge fan of the Daniel family over here. Hope you enjoy this mini session!

Primm Family // Happy Birthday, Catherine!

Happy birthday, Catherine!

You are one year old. It has been a joy to capture you in your Mama’s tummy, when you were six months old and now close to your birthday! Your parents are wonderful and you make them so happy. You have the most beautiful hair and the sweetest serious face. Your dogs, Macy and Ivan, love you and you are a brave girl to grow up with big dogs! You’re walking, you’re curious and you’re confident. That’s a lot to be said for a one year old!

I can’t wait until we have another family photoshoot! I love the Primms and I hope you enjoy this sweet family session at the park!

David + Rosi // Timeless Chapel Wedding

David and Rosi’s wedding day was soooooo special. I’ve known the Arnalls for a long time, and it was such a sweet day getting to witness two families coming together. Albeit an emotional day, the Lord was very present and it was precious time spent with the newlyweds!

Friday Photography Fun // Part I

Hi photographer friends!

This may not happen every Friday…or even every other Friday (how non-committal am I sounding right now?), but this Friday is the beginning of a series of posts for tips I’ve learned along the way as a wedding and portrait photographer since 2011.

In my free time (lol), you’ll find me editing, reading photography articles about light, posing or business and watching webinars on editing style or branding. So here’s to sharing some knowledge I’ve gained through education and experience!

*I ran across this article from the former Director of Marketing at Lexar all about memory cards this morning, and I thought I’d pass it along.* It’s entitled “Why you should not delete images on your memory card using your camera” and contains many de-bunked myths!

That’s really all for today, folks! One step at a time. One change at a time, and eventually your photography business will be making huge leaps!

Happy Friday, photographer friends!

Beach // Family Vacation 2017

Let’s be real….most of these pictures are of Brynlee (my almost-two-year-old niece). I spent the past week with my family at the beach, and although we had two days of rain, it was long overdue and I’m not wanting to leave!!

Sarah (my sister) made GoPro videos all week, so make sure to scroll to the bottom to see some of her pictures.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the beach:

D.C. // Personal Travel

If you’ve never seen D.C. at 5 a.m., I would suggest it. Maybe not for the tiredness you’ll feel, but definitely for the moody blue sky! It was my first time to the capital and although it was a long two days, it was worth it to see some of the nation’s most important sites!

Greyson // Newborn Lifestyle Session

Ohhhhhhh my, a wittle baby!!! Newborn sessions are the sweetest – full of fresh love, tiny feet, stuffed animals and a happy mama and daddy! Nate + Shelby have become good friends of ours recently and we’ve loved getting to hold little Greyson the past couple weeks. I love baby snuggles :)

Nate + Shelby are already rockstar parents. They have fun together, laugh at pooping episodes and love on their little buddy while serving one another. It’s truly a beautiful sight. Introducing: Greyson Ryder Johnson!

The Mobleys // Botanical Baby Session

Sweet little Lucy is now 11 months old! I took her newborn portraits back in November and it was a calm, sweet session. Lucy endured the extreme humidity at the Botanical Gardens…sweat and tears, but thankfully no blood!

Before the session the Gardens were completely empty… So I let the creative juices flow and captured the light falling on trees, plants and bushes. I love being in nature, and I love photographing sweet familes! Much love to the Mobleys.

Colorado // Nothing But Breathtaking!

A few weeks ago my boyfriend’s brother got married…..in COLORADO. It was a refreshing trip full of celebration, sweet people and incredible views. I took my camera along (because it’s attached to my hand on trips!) and had the joy of capturing some sweet family moments.

Here are just a few of the scenes we saw in the Breckenridge area. What fun!

Lauren + Matt // Avondale Engagement Session in the Rain

Lauren and I have been roommates for the past two years, and we actually just finished our time at the beloved Stable this past weekend! I had the honour of capturing their engagement session a couple weeks ago and am SO excited to document their wedding in November!

Lauren works at Avondale Elementary as a teacher, so Avondale Park was the perfect setting for their engagement session. A tender love between them + a rainy day = quite the adventure, but we made it work and it turned out beautifully! Here’s to you, future Carricks!
