Behind the Stones » Photography

Before Marshall and I decided to start growing our family, we always said that the standard was going to be the Duncan kids. I am not even joking. They may scoff at that when they read this, but I am being totally honest. They have done a phenomenal job parenting these kids. I cannot say enough good things about these people. We have known this family for years, and it was my absolute pleasure to photograph them. This was a Mother’s Day present for Miss Pam. She wanted to wait until the fall due to it being her favorite time of the year. Good call! Pam, I am so thankful to call you my friend, and I hope these pictures bring joy to your mother’s heart. <3

I was recently asked what my favorite job has been. Aside from motherhood, photography wins without question. When you see this blog, you will see why. This session was so so fun. After seeing a paint war idea on Pinterest, I knew exactly who would be PERFECT for it. Danielle, my sister, has a wonderful family. Each one of them is crazy creative. I am thrilled to share these images, and it makes me giddy knowing how excited they are to have them. Please note that they have NEVER had professional family photos taken before this session. What a way to get it done! Sorry for the large number of images. They were just too good not to share. Enjoy!

I LOVE themes. When I was teaching school, themes were a large part of my teaching style. This love of themes has transferred to my home life, as well. Audrey’s room is decorated in an owl theme. Sawyer’s room is a travel theme. I just love themes…did I mention that already? So, when Chloe said she wanted to do an America theme session, I was pumped. Between studying America in school, having a very patriotic father, and just plain loving the American colors, Chloe knew this was the theme for her. I am excited to share these pictures with everyone. Hope you enjoy! Go #merica!

Over the summer I had the chance to photograph this growing family for both a maternity and newborn session. I have known Rachel for some time, and it was a blessing getting to spend time with her and her loved ones. Amelia was born in July and after staying in the nicu for a few weeks due to some complications, she was released. That was a scary and trying time for the family, but as you can see, miss Amelia is home and absolutely beautiful! Her siblings love her to pieces. I think her parents do, too. 😉 I also want to give a shout out to Loopsy Lou for providing Miss Amelia with beautiful crocheted goodies!

Little Audrey is so stinking cute. She was just a dream to photograph. I loved seeing her siblings cuddle her up and examine her tiny features. What a blessing she is! I am so excited to share these images with everyone. This family is beautiful on the inside and out! I wish you well Davis family.
