The Huffman Family

The Huffman Family

Alex + Brooke have been watching their little man Graham grow for the last 6 months- he's still trying to sit up on his own but filling any space he's in with adorable smiles! Cousin Addie joined in for some photos too so these cuties have some portraits growing up together! <3 We spent an evening at Keeneland making funny noises to earn some smiles, chatting about our favorite ice cream and envisioning these cousins hopefully enjoying Keeneland together in the far, far future. :)

These two got married last year and are welcoming a little girl at the end of July! They spent an evening with me at Shakertown documenting this chapter before she arrives! Join us for their gorgeous sunset portrait session!

Newest Arrival | Emily Rose

Newest Arrival | Emily Rose

She's the newest arrival to the Vanderhorst house and she's already filling her days learning to root for the University of Kentucky Wildcats, cheering on dad as a swim team coach and snuggling up with mom. Join us for her in-home newborn session for all the sweetness!

"Daddy where the cows go?" | Jericho Acres Dairy

"Daddy where the cows go?" | Jericho Acres Dairy

Curtis + Carilynn are dear friends of mine who's story about closing their diary farm of three generations has made international headlines in the past few months. For those unfamiliar with their story, Walmart decided to eliminate the middle man for their milk, which in this case was Dean's, the only buyer for the Jericho Acres Dairy. With only 60 days notice they fought hard for another buyer but like thousands of dairy farmers across the US since 1970, they decided to close their dairy operation.

I spent a summer day with them when they sold over half their herd. This documentation of images shows Curtis going over the cows with the buyer, his last time milking the majority of the herd (they milked for a few more weeks following this shoot before selling all of their girls), how much the entire family was part of the daily operation of the farm, loading the purchased cows on the trailer and watching it drive away. Join us for one of the hardest days of their lives but a story that is too important not to tell.

Waiting on Baby Avery

Waiting on Baby Avery

Brooke + Jeremy recently celebrated their first wedding anniversary but year number two will look a bit different with the addition of a baby girl! :) We spent an evening out on the farm in Bardstown, Kentucky to document this sweet time before little Avery arrives!

Corey + Noël take Love for a (bike) Ride!

Corey + Noël take Love for a (bike) Ride!

Corey + Noël are high school sweethearts ready to take on the next adventures together in life! The first of those adventures is their 50lb fur baby named Jax and the next is marriage! :) We enjoyed a summer evening at Keeneland together and ended with a bike ride- but the surprise is that the bikes are special! Corey's grandparent's gave them the vintage bikes that they too rode and loved... but they needed quite a bit of work. After some new tires, tune up and shine they were ready for a new life on the road starting with this photo session! <3

Adelaide Turns ONE!

Adelaide Turns ONE!

I’ve been photographing this little lady’s parents, Cody + Kayla, since they got engaged in 2012! It’s hard to believe miss Adelaide is already a year old! At one she's loving her stuffed husky puppy, open mouth kisses, reading books and climbing all over mom and dad- when she's not busy trying to make friends with everyone. :) Click here to enjoy her one year old portrait session at the UK Arboretum.
