I recently had the pleasure of photographing the Carey family. I have known Mark and Kristen for well... a long time! When I was in jr. high and early high school, they were my youth leaders. I have so many fun memories with these two and now this photo session to add to them.
Mark and Kristen: I hope these images of your family are what you were looking for. Enjoy!

Last week I had my first ever family session with the Noland Family. Summer contacted me a few weeks ago and I was more than happy to photo this young, fun, adorable family! For those of you who don't know, Chase and I are cousins and I have known Summer for over 10 years. Hunter will be 1 in September and trust me, you will fall in love with his brown eyes and precious smile! Okay, enough blabbing... enjoy the pictures!
Chase & Summer: I hope you find some you love!

When in the presence of a toddler, it is impossible not to smile. In the presence of a toddler, we are able to see how great the small things in life really are: playing with a balloon, singing 'Jesus Loves Me,' the joyful sound of laughter, being able to run and jump, and of course, cute little smiles. :) Sarah Beth, with her blonde pigtails, big blue eyes, and china doll lips, is sure to bring a smile to everyone she meets. I truly enjoyed taking pictures of this soon to be BIG sister!

I have been without my computer for 2 days and I've been itching to post these pictures. :)
This past Sunday I got to shoot a senior session with my cousin, Chase. Most of our Sundays are spent at Nana and Papa's house with the Jones crew! Most Sundays we enjoy a fabulous home cooked meal and get to just, well... chill. But this Sunday was different... a GOOD different of course! With the help of Macy and Krista (Chase's sister), I think we captured the true essence of someone the Jones Family calls "Chaser."
*Special thanks to the Fanning's for letting us shoot at Oakdale Steakhouse! (mmm...)

I cannot believe both my sister and Molly are seniors this year. These two have been best friends since I can remember... (we just found out they were in the same Pre-K class)! It has always been Macy & Molly; needless to say, I think of her as a sister. :) She is a beautiful girl inside and out, I can't wait to see what God has in store for her.
*Special Thanks to the 'Brennan Vineyards' in Comanche. For those of you who have been there, the McCrary House used to belong to Molly's great grandfather!
Molly: I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them!

I was so excited when Amy, Ashley, and I set a date to take pictures of their little ones. Autumn, Carter, and Tylee were too cute in their matching blue and yellow outfits. I had a blast taking pictures of these three. They were my first "official" photo session. (Macy doesn't count- she's family!) Needless to say, I was nervous, excited, and had been anticipating the session since I booked it! Thank you Amy & Bryan and Ashley & Cale for allowing me to capture some sweet moments of your precious little blessings. :)
Are you ready to see some extreme cuteness?!
Honestly, these Black & White photos are my favorite.

So here we are again... more senior pictures of Macy. We literally spent THE whole day walking around the big city of Hillsboro (haha) looking for cool places to shoot. I told her to bring 2 or 3 outfits we could play around with. (Which seemed like an easy task...) When she and my mom knocked on my door, I found them standing there with what appeared to be her entire closet! I kid you not, she had an assortment of dresses and a HUGE bag of shirts, jewelry, shoes, etc. It was such a "Macy" thing of her to do. Needless to say, we had plenty to choose from. :)
I enjoyed spending the day with two of my favorite people. To top it all off, we ended the shoot/day with ice cream - mmmm.
Mom and Macy: I love you both!
I think half of the shoot includes this hat...MY hat, that definitely looks better on her.

Amanda and Eric were blessed with beautiful weather for their special day. After days of rain, the sunshine was greatly appreciated. :)
Now for Amanda and Eric... Amanda made ALL of the food served at the wedding (the reception dinner, the cakes, all of it)! She is in Culinary School (yep) and her food was delicious! Not only did Amanda make the food, she and Eric allowed their guests to eat BEFORE them. After eating the fantastic Italian dinner, Amanda served her guests either carrot cake or chocolate cake (YUM). It was amazing to see a bride so selfless on a day when it is all about her! I feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to meet these two and I wish them the best!
This was my second time to shoot a wedding with Ashley and Micah (aka Double Knot Photography) and I had a blast. I’m so glad they invited me along and I can’t believe how much I have learned. Thanks you two!
Here are some of my favorites...
