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!

Loving Miss Maisy

Loving Miss Maisy

Julie + Matt welcomed little Maisy a few weeks earlier than expected (just like mom!). She's been a wide eyed addition to their already full and energetic house. We spent an afternoon together trying to keep Maisy asleep on someone's shoulder and even managed to get a full family photo on the bed (but cruise to the last photo to see how it looked most of the time ;)) Enjoy their in home newborn session in Georgetown, Kentucky!

Sweet Little Georgiana

Sweet Little Georgiana

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.

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.

Beath Got it Wright | John + Mary Catherine

Beath Got it Wright | John + Mary Catherine

We've all heard of high school sweethearts- but John + Mary Catherine go all the way back to middle school. These two have literally grown up together and after more than a decade as boyfriend and girlfriend they get to upgrade to Mr. + Mrs. around this time next year! Join us for their beautiful engagement session at Shakertown in Harrodsburg, KY.

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

Detoma Takes a Holaday

Detoma Takes a Holaday

I've known this couple for quite some time. Gus, as one of my high school best friend's (Katy) younger brothers, and Amanda as one Katy's best friends from college. Somewhere along through the family gatherings and visits home to the Detoma’s- the glances and jokes exchanged between Gus + Amanda turned in to something more. As they say- the rest is history. :) Join us for the wedding day of this goofy and kind hearted couple at the Round Barn at Red Mile Stable of Memories in Lexington, Ky.

Little Lady Ryan

Little Lady Ryan

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.
