Miss Ella Kate is 6 months old and so full of joy and attitude! Her little expressions throughout the shoot had me laughing the whole time. I can’t wait to see how she has grown in another three months!!
One thing that stuck out to me about Kathryn was how in absolute love she is with Garett. Her laugh, her affection, everything pointed back to how much she adores Garett. It was an honor to walk through their journey with them. The day was absolutely beautiful!
I get so overwhelmed with joy when I walk into a house full of my images. Meredith is the type of mom who loves photos of her family. Not only does she love them, but she frames them and decorates her walls with them. During our last visit she exclaimed how she is quite literally running out of wall space. We joked that she should have digital frames everywhere cycling through shoots. That was a joke, haha. But seriously, I love when clients love my work and their family like that! Here are just a few images from their mini session.
Gotta love when you get the whole family together for pictures! This was such a fun time for me. I’m so thankful the Gilberts welcomed me into their loving home. We had such a blast getting to know each other as I captured their family.
How stinking cute is Pawpaw. Oh my gosh.
Unreal. I cannot get over how fabulous Jean is. Jean and Joe got married this past Saturday. It was truly one of the most beautiful weddings i’ve attended as a photographer. Not only were we an hour ahead of schedule the entire time, but there was no stress, no frustrations, and no rain! That is a successful wedding day in a Louisiana summer if you ask me! Jean originally didn’t want to take bridals. After I encouraged her a little bit and offered my services to her, this is what she said:
“Initially, I wasn’t even planning on having a bridal session. My photographer approached me one afternoon with the vision of a a late summer evening shoot. I remember her using the phrase “just a girl and her dress”. I was immediately sold. Nottoway Plantation, where the portraits were taken, is very near and dear to my heart since I had worked there for nearly five years and spent that watching other brides have their weddings and portraits there.”
I requested she wear simple makeup, barely there jewelry, and salon-free hair. She didn’t need any of that. Showcasing a brides natural beauty is my goal. I want them to remember and realize how beautiful they are just being in love and dressed in a gorgeous gown of their choice.
