Wow! Can I just say that I am in awe of the birth process. Seriously, what an incredible miracle. This family of four became a family of five with the addition of a sweet boy named Isaac Boyd. I was so blessed to be part of his birth story. Before this, I had only ever witnessed the births of my own babies. We can all imagine how different that perspective is. It was so incredibly special to see this event from such a different viewpoint. I was quietly behind the scenes being one of her biggest cheerleaders. She was in utter anguish, but I was smiling because she was rockin’ it! Many people think that the last thing they would want is a photographer taking pictures and/or video during this time. I mean, I can totally understand that perspective. However, just wait until you see these photos and even more so when you watch the video. Oh my goodness! What an incredible treasure this family now has. I think after seeing them, you will completely understand how valuable capturing these moments can be. Memories fade. Some we would like to fade, but others…let’s hold on to them the best way we can. Now, go grab some tissues, turn up the volume, and sit back and enjoy Isaac Boyd’s birth story. Be sure to watch the film first. It is way more than a slide show. Enjoy!

It has been a very busy season for me. I have been a shooting and editing mad woman. It is time to blog some of these sessions. We will start with this sweet family. I have known Holly for many years. She has three beautiful children, as you will see. I am thrilled to be able to give her images of these sweet moments with her quickly growing children. I am even more thrilled to be able to give her children images of these sweet moments with their loving mother. They will treasure these images forever and always. I sure do love what I do!

Summer is winding down. Fall is just a few short weeks away. While I do not like the humidity of East Tennessee summers, I sure do love the fun. The long days may keep us from an early bedtime, but I like it that way. More time to play outside. We have enjoyed our time, but I am definitely looking forward to what the next season has to offer. My August faves are many. Hope you enjoy! Go here if you want to see the runner ups. 😉

Whoa. Am I really posting July faves the day before September starts? Better late than never seems to be my motto these days. Yep, working on that. In the meantime, hope you enjoy a few of my favorite images from last month. It was a full month. Shot my first wedding, enjoyed birthday celebrations, and relaxed in the great outdoors during a camping trip. I am so glad to have these memories. If you don’t already do it, here is my encouragement to get out there and document your days!

Here’s to seeing August’s faves in the near future. 😉 Feel free to visit my Instagram to see my other faves that just didn’t make the blog post.:)

The sun finally came out yesterday evening. It has been raining non-stop around here. There are only a few places at my house where the sun will peak through the trees during the golden hour. I talked my babies into playing in the rocks and dirt in just the right spot, and boy did they play. Especially, miss Audrey. Ha! It quickly became a bath night. The results were too good not to share.

Daniel and Katelyn are quickly becoming good friends of ours. It has been a real pleasure getting to know them. When Katelyn asked me to photograph their September wedding at Country Manor Acres, I was both honored and delighted. Included in my wedding package is a complimentary engagement session. We chose to have this session on the beautiful venue property. This place is gorgeous! Just a few short weeks away, and we will be shooting on this location again! I am so excited for you both! I hope you love your photos.
