Autumn + Joey welcomed baby Georgiana in June and she has completely stolen their hearts. It's always an honor to document a family at the beginning of a new chapter in their lives and spend quiet moments with them at home. These little details are fleeting treasures; the way Georgi lays and positions her legs because she was born breech, how Autumn strokes her arm and kisses her feet during feeding and the way Joey's facial hair makes her face crunch. Enjoy the little moments of this incredibly sweet in home newborn session in Lexington, Kentucky.
Guy + Kate got an extra surprise when Little Ryan arrived because they waited to find out the gender! So excited with a little girl, they gave her a name that was significant to both mom and dad. Ryan's fur brother, Rizzo, doesn't seem to find that she has mom and dad wrapped around her little finger already as they all settle in at home together as a family of four! Can't wait to see how she grows and changes and it was a such a joy to document this family together during their first few weeks at home in Lexington, Ky.
There is no greater compliment than being able to create images for families time and time again. Nancy and Winn have been supporting my photography since the early days and still treasure some of those first portraits. So much so that Gran decided it was long overdue that the whole family get together and give her some new material for the frames in her house. :)
Enjoy a morning spent at Keeneland with the Seaver clan, including several running boys and lots of infectious laughter. <3
Cody and Kayla welcomed home baby A a few weeks ago! They found they were having her while traveling Germany last year and already have big plans for her. Mostly that she will love UK, Land Rovers and wearing Kayla's baby shoes from the 80's. :) It was so wonderful to catch up with them and document a day at home for this new family of three. <3
It’s been such an blast to document Grace and Michael’s love story from their engagement photos, to their wedding in 2015, to photos with their pup Nelly last year and now with them as a family of 4! Little Bobbie is already so full of personality! He arrived over a week past his due date, gives a seemingly judgemental side glance to his admirers and is destined to be a Disneyland lover with the vintage map and Mickey ears in his nursery. It will be so much fun to see how he grows.
On Sunday mornings, these four pile into the kitchen to make homemade pancakes from scratch, now known as “Scratchy pancakes” to the girls. Lara cooks them up in a cast iron skillet, while M&M get stuck in the couch cushions and keep busy in the play room and Bill drinks coffee from his Girls Rule superhero coffee mug. It’s a perfect day filled with all the little things that make a house a home. On their last Sunday in Lexington, I joined them for a session to document some of those little moments that rarely get documented.
