the big 4-

Baby Girl-

Another year has come and gone. It's so hard to believe that I am now the mother of a four year old. During this past year you have gone from toddler to little girl in what seems like a blink of the eye.

Cool Baby


You are the most loving little girl. When you throw your little arms around my neck and tell me "I love you very much..." --- I melt. You have no idea how much your mommy and daddy love you back. To you its your arms stretched out wide, or "as big as this room"... but its far more than that.


This has been a big year for you. This is the first year you spent as a big sister. You fill the role perfectly. One of your favorite things is hearing your baby sister laugh and knowing it was because you tickled her. You are always on her side and defend her when you think she's in trouble. I pray that the two of you will always stick together. You also started pre-school this year and you love it. On your very first day you jumped right up, walked through those doors and never once looked back. That is you, baby girl, my fearless child.

Being your mother is truly a blessing. I thank God everyday for giving you to us.

About Me

My photo
I am a photographer focused on infant, child, family, maternity, couples and senior photography. I shoot on location, at the location of your choice, in natural light.

I have loved taking pictures for as long as I can remember - anyone who knows me can tell you that. There is just something about it that makes me smile. After the birth of my first daugther, Delaney, my passion for photography ignited. 33 months later came her baby sister, Avery. I have had my camera in my hand every day since. There isn't a moment I want to miss... the tiny toes, the drool, the smiles, the simple things. My girls are my inspiration for everything. You will often find me in the background snapping those natural moments in life that I don't want to see people forget. Sometimes the best photographs are the ones that are unposed and candid. I love the feeling of capturing such sweet moments and will strive to bring your memories to life in a way that you love.
