Along side my husband of over a decade, I photograph people in love with each other and in love with their lives. We're based in Paducah Kentucky but gladly will go anywhere you want to take us! We are so glad you've stopped by to follow our most recent adventures! Grab your favorite drink and snack and get cozy... there's plenty to see!
We didn’t know if this engagement session would happen! But just take a look at those dogwood and Bradford Pear trees and you tell me whether or not you think I was THRILLED that we were able to shoot while social distancing. One hint: The answer is YES I WAS! And I’m certain Kailyn & Grant we just as happy that their session was before the strict stay Health at Home order form our governor!
People come into your life in odd ways and sometimes, they stick around. When Neil & I sold our first house in 2017, it was Eric & Emma. Initially after the move, a few times I had to pick up mail or a package and Emma was always so sweet about it. They even shared with us how they’ve utilized the space in their home and have invited us to come by a visit. I may have shared with them how much Graeme still misses his old house 😅
Before strict social distancing was ordered I was still outside doing portraits and I thank God that Chelsea, Ben, and I were able to get together for their rain check engagement session date and capture these sun-filled images! And at this adorable farm – their farm and house! I always ask my couples to take me to their special place for their engagement session – that can be anywhere for some people but for Chelsea & Ben, it’s their own home and land and my goodness it was so lovely! Sometimes I don’t know what I’m getting myself into when I arrive on location but I definitely lucked out… there were some sweet little nooks and perfect pickets of light and I was giggly most of the evening with them because of it!
If you follow me on Instagram and Facebook, you’ll know this already but it’s worth mentioning time and time again…
My firstborn, Graeme Thomas, turned 5 years old on April 1st!
When I mentioned to him on his birthday, while he was playing with this new Transformers toy given to him that morning as a birthday gift from Neil and myself, that we needed to hop in the studio for a few minutes to take his 5 year portraits, he dropped what he was doing and said, “Let’s do it now so I can play for the rest of the day and not worry about it.” I couldn’t help but laugh because that’s not usually his response to taking a break from playing. But he does this all the time though – surprises me with his random mature thoughts and ideas. Sometimes I forget that he’s no longer 3 years old.
