A crisp fall day, golden leaves blanket the ground. The trees cast a golden hue that surrounds you. Pair that with the families gorgeous fall styling and what you have is a session that gives you all the fall nostalgia.

Old homes are filled with so much charm but are also filled with old vintage bathrooms. When we bought this house we always knew the girls bathroom would need some love.

These photos are a perfect example to show that it doesn’t matter what happens right before the session. You can be stressed, you could have ran to stores all morning trying to find the right outfits…your session will be ok, your session will be fun and I promise I will get the shot! Celeste and […]

2020 The longest and shortest year. Hey friends, it’s been a while since I’ve been on here. Life, well, it’s been busy. When I think back to all that my family has done this past year I can’t quite wrap my head around it. I mean, we have moved 3 times!! During a pandemic! Who […]

Where did the time go?

When Stella reached out to me to book her mini session she said all she wanted was some school photos of her girls. Their school wasn’t offering them this year and she didn’t want the year to pass without capturing some beginning of the school year images.
