Newborn | Helen Makes Five

Newborn | Helen Makes Five

Meet Helen! She’s the newest, but still not the smallest (thanks to Mowgli!), addition to the Wood family! She was so excited to join in the family fun that she came two weeks early and kept one eye open for most of our photo shoot to make sure she didn’t miss anything. :) They joined me at The Studio Lex to document their fresh family of five.

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!

Newborn | Loving LouLou

Newborn | Loving LouLou

Louisa is the newest addition to the Boersma family and she’s already got mom, dad and fur-sister Marigold wrapped around her little fingers <3 I photographed Ron + Hannah Beth’s wedding last September and was delighted to be asked to document their growing family while I was in Michigan recently. They hosted me in their Grand Rapids home for an evening and we spent a snowy morning together documenting this chapter in their story. Enjoy a peek inside LouLou’s newborn session! Enjoy! <3

Aubrey Rose

Miranda + Ryan welcomed Aubrey Rose to their wild crew in October! They invited me to spend a morning with them when Aubrey was just a few days old and I made a little photo magic out of the chaos. ;) I included a few outtakes that I hope get recreated as these kiddos grow up together. Enjoy! <3

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. :)

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!

Morales Mini Session

Morales Mini Session

I joined family at the University of Kentucky Arboretum for a mini session to document some portraits of them with baby Mia! We strolled through the gardens chatting about how they grew up two hours from each other in Mexico but met in the U.S. and tried our best to get three month old Mia to show us her beautiful smile. It was so wonderful to meet them and I hope everyone enjoys their sweet images! <3
