Lexington kentucky family

Oyler Family in the Studio!

Oyler Family in the Studio!

This sweet family has invited me to document them many times and this time it was to celebrate little E turning 6 months old. Our session turned more into bribery with M&ms, shoulder rides, tickle fights and kisses and that’s exactly the way it should be :) I adore this family and hope you enjoy their session at the Studio Lex!

Pickin' n' Dumplings | Ao Family

Pickin' n' Dumplings | Ao Family

Join us for an afternoon at the Eckert Boyd Orchard and making homemade lamb dumplings with the Ao family in Lexington, Kentucky. Not only is important to have beautiful images with your family but it’s also important to have documentation of family traditions- like making dumplings from scratch for dinner. The little things are big things and it’s certainly a day I felt so honored to be invited to. Enjoy!

Meet the McCollums

Meet the McCollums

Anyone who’s ever met the McCollums’ will tell you that this crew is filled to the brim with personality. Cooper is always quoting movies and picked up learning the guitar, Colleen is daydreaming about her future college in the Northeast and dad is always ready for a good day at Keeneland. Join us in two of their favorite places- the University of Kentucky Arboretum and UK Kroger Field. Enjoy!

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. :)

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.

Love a Little Moore

Love a Little Moore

My favorite thing about photographing Joyce + Bryan and their spunky boys is that whenever I show a Joyce a photo on the back of the camera her reply is almost always, "awww, my boys!" regardless of who the photo is of. <3

Join us for a gorgeous sunny evening at Waveland Historic Home together. There were dirty knees and time to swing and the noises of trains and planes and little toes curling in the grass. You don’t want to miss it. <3

Welcome to One!

Welcome to One!

Meet Little EJ!

Her first trip around the sun is coming up soon and to document the occasion her parents brought her to The Studio Lex for me to capture this fun and giggly time in her life. :) Enjoy this smiley babe and adorable personality.

Rawlings Party of Four

Meet the Rawlings

Baby boy Caden was welcomed to the family at the end of February! He was so excited to join in the fun that he came a whole month early! :) I popped in to their home to document this new party of four one morning when Caden was two weeks old. Newborn sessions are certainly a bit crazier and more fun when there's a big brother in the background to be my photo assistant and sing up song on his karaoke machine. :)

Enjoy!
