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! :)

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.

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!

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!

Addy Knows Best | Nate + Cathy

Addy Knows Best | Nate + Cathy

While on a family vacation to the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky Addy, who’s 6, fell in love with the ornament display at the park and suggested that her Mom, Cathy, and her fiancé of 3 years, Nate, should getting married there. After years of procrastinating the planning of a big wedding they took Addy’s suggestion seriously and put a wedding together in just 6 DAYS! Cathy’s grandfather officiated the ceremony and their closest family members (and a collection of horse park visitors that evening) watched them step inside the ornament and have an impromptu ceremony inside the ornament! Join us for their magical after dark nuptials.

Donnelly Siblings Session

Donnelly Siblings Session

Karrie + Xavier shared their crew of kiddos with me for another year as their youngest, Kieran, just turned ONE! We threw tinsle like snow, taught Kieran how to drink Fanta and they let me spin them around like superheroes. It was so fun to spend a morning with them at the family business Blue Stallion Brewing Company. I hope you enjoy this goofy sibling photoshoot.

Family Radtke

Inspired by portraits of the royals, Rebekah and Larry wanted some minimalist family portraits including their little lady Campbell. With patience and lots of skittles- I think we got at least a few winners fit for the halls of a palace. Join us for their mini session at the Studio Lex!

Bride and Byard | Chris + Sarah

Bride and Byard | Chris + Sarah

Chris and Sarah started out as long distance friends from an internet game they played together but as life brought them geographically closer together their friendship blossomed closer too. Their love story continued to span thousands of miles as jobs, school and visiting family called for lots of time on the road both together and apart. Their hearts remained close regardless of the distance and lead them here- to their wedding day! They wed under cool Saturday with overcast skies on October 13th. Join us for their sweet and colorful fall celebration at the Loudoun House in Lexington, Kentucky!
