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!

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.

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 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!

To help make people feel beautiful, capture light and hang out in parks? Are you kidding, this is actually a job? I am so thankful I get to do exactly those things. I was giddy editing these – the perfect light streaming in, the bokeh forming in the background, Anna Grace’s piercingly beautiful eyes. I’ll let you check out the rest…

My baby sister graduated last Friday! I still can’t believe it. She was such a cute baby, cheeky toddler, hilarious tween and now gentle and kind 17-year-old (with the occassional line that is 100% quotable). Sarah is off to college in August, and we’re so proud of her. I’m surprised she didn’t have back issues with all of these medals! Congratulations, Sarah Kins!

I’ll admit, going into this photoshoot I was a little nervous. “Four boys,” I thought….what am I going to do with them? Are they even going to be fun?

The question was answered right when I met them. THEY ARE SO FUN! I was happily surprised with how sweet these boys are too each other and to their parents. They obliged me by running all over, making goofy faces and playing up at the park.

This family is so cool, and I hope these pictures inspire you to love your family better today.

I think I say this for every shoot…. but this is my favourite thus far! SERIOUSLY though, Hannah was an absolute dream to photograph! Her resting face is a smile, so she looks happy all the time. And she went along with my goofy suggestions to dance in a romper, swing side to side on the staircase and sit in an area with splotchy shadows! She is a true beauty who is heading to Auburn this fall after graduating high school (War Eagle!)

One fun little note: You know when photographers tell you to always find even light? Well, I’m loving not doing that these days! :) It’s so fun to play with light and shadows, especially when you have a beautiful subject. I hope you notice some of them!

The stunning Hannah Ayers, everybody:

My baby sister is graduating in two weeks and I can’t think about that for too long because my eyes start to leak!

We caught a pretty windy day up at the park, so our grand balloon idea didn’t fully pan out….but it was so fun photographing these gorgeous girls. Sarah is beautiful and hilarious. Shelby is thoughtful and goofy. Whitney is smart and funny. Emma Kaye is talented and bold. Tori is kind and calm. Enjoy seeing their personalities come out in these pictures!

I had the privilege of taking Josh and Elizabeth’s portraits before Catherine was born, and now this cutie is six months old!

Catherine mixed between serious and so smiley, but she remained calm the whole time! It was a beautiful evening at the Botanical Gardens – perfect for a photoshoot – and we navigated the crowds of prom to document little Catherine’s half birthday.

I love the Primms, and you will too after just a few images!
