Today she is five.


Five years ago she arrived at 4:29 a.m. Her 6lb 12oz curled up little body fit perfectly into our arms. Our world for a split second, just stopped turning. She was perfect and beautiful. She was an answer to prayer. She is loved.


Her smile makes me smile.

Sweet Smile

Everyday of her life, she is a blessing.


She's smart and so full of life. She's stubborn, too. She amazes me every single day.


Today she loves:
♥ Barbie dolls
♥ Arts and crafts
♥ dancing
♥ to hear her baby sister laugh
♥ to help others
♥ iCarly
♥ riding her bike
♥ ice cream
♥ to play splaster
♥ school
♥ fuzzy socks
♥ to swing
♥ ice cream!
♥ music
♥ taylor swift kenny chesney miley cyrus
♥ hello kitty
♥ skirts
♥ to cuddle at bedtime

So proud to be 5.
so proud to be 5.

This number five has been hard for me to grasp. Its so full of emotion. But, today I haven't cried. Yesterday... I did.

You are our heart. You are such an amazing little girl and we love to watch you grow. Your independent and a girl who knows what she wants. That makes it hard on your parents sometimes - that strong will of yours. Your sweet and tender heart shows love. Your laugh fills our home with happiness. Everyday we are thankful.

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.
