find me elsewhere
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!
I heard from Kelsey about a week before her schedule cesarean – at the last minute, she decided she wanted the birth of her second child to be photographed. I was thrilled that she chose me! And at that point in time, a photographer had yet to be allowed into the surgical suite to photograph a c section at Lourdes. That made me even more ecstatic! I like to meet up with the mom before the birth to get to know her a little bit beforehand and to ask questions are her birth plan but because of the birth being 6 days later from initial contact, there simply wasn’t time.
Arriving at Patrick’s aunt’s farm, I could see the hustle going on around the reception tent and ceremony area near the pond. Vendors and family members were bustling about to and from the main house, where the wedding party was getting ready. The energy was happy but also serious – everyone there had a job to do to make Lydia & Patrick’s day perfection.
This past Saturday was a wet one and yet I’m thrilled with how the images are turning out! Much like Taylor & Logan’s May wedding!
The day started out beautiful and sunny! We were able to photograph bridal details, Taylor & Logan’s first look and part 1 of their portraits, and wedding party portraits outside in the bright happy weather….. that was until the very end of wedding party portraits when the clouds rolled in heavy and the rain started slowly but steadily coming down. No problem! We knew rain was in the forecast and the amazing Sara Falder and her crew at Flower + Furbish had already begun preparing to move the outdoor ceremony and reception under a tent – AND IT WAS STUNNING!
A follow up to Baby Teagan’s Birth which was on the blog Wednesday, is her newborn lifestyle portraits! This sweet girl did what every photographer hopes for during a newborn session – awake for lifestyle poses with mom and dad and then fell deep asleep for her alone poses. And her room made for the perfect location – mom Kortney did an amazing job hand-painting the accent wall behind her crib!
It was so hard for me to narrow down which images were to be included in this lifestyle newborn blog because literally every single image in their full gallery is a favorite of mine! Of course, if you look back at Lauren & Levi’s maternity blog, I felt the exact same way… and therefore, I probably overshared on images but I don’t think anyone will mind an oversharing of a beautiful little family and their adorable baby boy – or the few photobombs of their hilarious fur-baby!
Kortney and I had been texting back and forth the morning and afternoon of Baby Teagan’s birth. It started off slow – a few contractions here and there, nothing regular and she felt like driving into town to do some shopping – and neither one of us though it would happen that day. After getting into town, only 20 minutes later, things had picked up in intensity so Kortney decided to hang out at her sister’s house, where she’d be closer to the hospital but also comfortable. She didn’t even make it inside her sister house – as soon as she arrived at her sisters, she knew it was time to head to the hospital. Her sister Keisha switched seats with Kortney and drove them to the hospital. Kortney phoned Harrison – it was time!
