Spring fairies in the garden

I love spring in my studio garden! The roses are beautiful, the light is stunning, and the little corners are perfect for variety. I did some spring fairy mini sessions when the roses looked at their best this year. I always pick pastel dresses for these sessions so that the dresses and flowers complement each […]

Nephew baby pictures

I recently went up to see my mother in South Carolina for the first time since Covid. My sister, her husband, and my new nephew also came to stay with us while I was there. We had a nice little family reunion. I definitely had to do pictures of the baby while I was there! […]

A new nephew

My brother’s wife and my sister were both recently pregnant at the same time. My brother’s wife delivered my new niece and my sister delivered my new nephew about a month later. I went all the way to Seattle to do photos for him and help out for a little bit. I took my traveling […]

So when I get to photograph family, it’s an even greater event for me. Recently, I photographed my newborn niece in Louisville […]

Dancing Senior

When Elizabeth booked her high school senior portraits, she and her mom wanted to make sure that they showed off her love of ballet. We were lucky to get a loaner professional tutu from her dance studio as she is the sugarplum fairy for this year’s Nutcracker production. I completely love how it’s all pink […]

Ballet Photography Classes

I teach other photographers how to do ballet photography. Usually, I say dance photography, but I once got asked on Instagram why it’s never any other form of dance besides ballet, and the answer is I don’t know how to teach any other form besides ballet! Ballet is so incredibly technical that once you learn […]

Ice Faires 2023

Just imagine… winter pairs perfectly with the couture dress, fairy wings, and princess crown your daughter is wearing. Faux snow wafts gently through the air as your girl stands in a winter garden setting.  These dreamy portrait appointments are the best of the southeast and are sold out quickly every year! The lighting is perfect for […]
