playful family portraits

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

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.

Fall Portraits | Bennett Family

Fall Portraits | Bennett Family

Peter and Dominique loaded up the family, including the family dog Rollo and Peter’s parents, to enjoy an afternoon running through the corn stalks, watching Rollo deal with Noah’s loving but aggressive hugs and seeing Ron befriend the local camel at Eckert-Boyd Orchard in Versailles, Kentucky. There were also apple cider donuts- but they were so delicious they went unphotographed. :) Join us for their fun afternoon that has pictures to prove it. :)

The W Bunch!

The W Bunch!

Anyone who knows this family knows how much they are loved and love on others. We spent a chilly evening at Keeneland playing (and mostly watching Finnley chase Tatym around) so that this family could love on each other. Join us for all the giggles and chaos!

A Magical Mini Session

Lacey and her son Cole joined me for a late afternoon portrait session. The light filling the forest was so gorgeous, giving their session a magical golden glow. Join us under the trees to see the magic for yourself! <3

The Lyttles

It was so fun to take updated family photos for the Lyttle's! They moved to a beautiful new neighborhood last year that overlooks farms so we stepped into their back yard and took a drive down the road to find the settings for their session. Join us for their fun and fall colorful session!

The Clarks

Kalen, Billy and their curious crew (Forrest, Beckett and Everly) met me in Gratz Park for some of their fist professional family photos together. There were lady bug searches (the kids even named one after me- SO sweet!), human pile ups, races, chasing and ring-a-round-the-rosey. To be honest most of our two hour session was complete chaos and I absolutely LOVED every minute of it. Join us for their family session at Gratz Park in Lexington, Kentucky.

Heet Family

Meet the Heets! The littlest one is Wiley, who's turning two here soon! He's currently a fan of Elmo, running and giving kisses to Mom + Dad. We spent a beautiful evening at Waveland Historic Home in Lexington, Kentucky getting some updated family photos for this adorable family!
