Baby Teagan is a month old now and I’m itching to blog her newborn portraits! But before I do, New Momma Kortney & New Daddy Harrison’s maternity portraits (and of course, Baby Teagan’s birth) must come first!

Not too long ago, I blogged the first of two of Kortney’s maternity portrait sessions, partially taken for a boutique who gave her the outfit but also to document her half-way point in her pregnancy. Kortney was blessed with an easy pregnancy and if it wasn’t obvious from her first maternity session, you can tell by her second session – pregnancy looks amazing on Kortney! She’s always been stylish and having the baby bump definitely didn’t hinder that – ladies, take note!

I met momma Shelby while photographing a wedding she was in a year ago – Kortney & Harrison’s – and instantly fell in love with her! She is the nicest little lady and her hubby is so so sweet on her! Come their maternity session this past fall, they made me feel like I was part of the family – even their pup loved on me! I was not so secretly hoping their pup would be in on Baby Jayden’s 6 month session but they promised me she would be at his 12 month. I’m holding them to it!

You know you have the best clients ever when the engagement session just starts off SO WELL and by the end of it, you’re not wanting to stop! This is how it was with Arella & Price! They are the sweetest, kindest people and I’m so honored that Arella followed in her older sister Analiese’s footsteps and booked me to photographer her wedding as well! I am so looking forward to working with both of their families in July!

For their engagement session, we met in Lowertown Paducah right when the trees were green but the blooms were still lovely shades of pink! We ended their session at Arella’s mom’s house outside of Lone Oak, right as the sun was setting – perfect weather and perfect light! July can’t get here soon enough!

I’ve been photographing Lauren’s sister Kelly’s family for years so it felt right to be at their parents’ farm for Lauren & Levi’s (and their dogs Maddie!) maternity portraits not too long ago. The 30 minute session went so well that by the end of it, we’d realized that we’d been shooting for 45 minutes! Times flies when you’re having fun!!! And both Lauren & Levi were such rockstars and the light was so perfect, I couldn’t stop just because time was up!

It’s about time there was an engagement session on this blog! Katelin & Chad’s wedding is this coming fall so they opted for a spring engagement session to have the best of both world as far as Paducah seasons go! And all Western Kentuckians know, spring and fall are the prettiest! We waited until the gold mustard weeds were at their best for sunset portraits at just the right time. Before hand, we of course had to shoot at my parents’ property – lake, forest, flowers… It’s doesn’t get any better!
