You Are My Sunshine | Jaron + Anna

You Are My Sunshine | Jaron + Anna

Jaron + Anna are expecting a baby girl in the next few weeks! Although they currently live in Alabania, it was on a summer visit back to Kentucky that they decided to celebrate the pregnancy of their child with a photoshoot. They met me at sunrise before the summer heat set in and we frolicked int the sunflowers. I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from our time together! :)

Meet the McCartneys

Meet the McCartneys

Almost seven years ago I was standing in this exact spot photographing Brendan + Dominique on their wedding day. Things have changed quite a bit for them since then so with their anniversary coming up we planned a quick mini family session while they were in Louisville in the same spot they said, “I do!”. It was so special to see them again and attempt to recreate an image they love from their wedding day- but with four kiddos in the frame too. Enjoy! <3

The Hortons

The Hortons

The Horton’s are a special family to me because they were one of my very first weddings I ever photographed. Now every few years they invite me back to take pictures of their family and it is an absolute treat to see them as parents. They met me close to sunrise at Alms Park in Cincinnati with bagels and coffee and we bribed some authentic smiles out of their spunky kiddos. Enjoy!

Vice Family Session

Vice Family Session

Joel, Emma and baby Viv currently call Taiwan home but while visiting family in the U.S. they squeezed in some time for family photos with me at Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky! Even at a few months old Viv is already full of personality and kept us all laughing with her giggles and scowls and looks of judgement. I hope you enjoy some of my favorites! <3

Half a Year with Marley

Half a Year with Marley

Meet The Billy + Mackenzie! Though the real star here is their little lady, Marley. She’s officially spent half a year bettering their lives with drool and giggles- plus she’s sitting by herself now! When you’re 6 months old that skill is one of the highest accomplishments and deserves documentation! :) Enjoy our gorgeous evening out at Keeneland celebrating this fun little lady!

An Enchanted Wait for Elodie

An Enchanted Wait for Elodie

Elias + Bri are welcoming a second princess to their family this summer but before she arrives they wanted a fairytale inspired maternity session and I knew just the place! :) I chased their first born little fairy through the ivy and spring blooms while also encouraging Bri to "stare out at your Kingdom"- haha!

Needless to say- we had so much fun together! I hope you enjoy the images and I look forward to documenting this family of 4 when little Elodie joins them in June! <3 Enjoy!

SuperMason turns ONE! :)

SuperMason turns ONE! :)

D.j. + Kailey brought their little man into the studio to document his first year of life! Mason spends his days going from superhero to snuggling Elmo to giving well intentional open mouth kisses to mom and dad. :) Enjoy their family session at the Studio Lex in Lexington, Kentucky.

Waiting for Emmett Laine

Waiting for Emmett Laine

Paige + Jarren are in the final weeks before they add a little boy, Emmett, to their family! I joined them on Paige’s grandmother’s property in Bardstown, Kentucky to snap some maternity photos for them amongst the garden, barn and colorful spring blooms. Enjoy!
