I had so much fun photographing Michael & Mia in their home! I can't wait to find out what sweet little baby Abrams will be! Thanks to Mia who was such an easy-going client and went along with my vision for the shoot. We had some fun as well as some mishaps with the chickens, but any shoot that involves farm animals is right up my alley. Really excited about my collaboration with Lush Flora & Fauna, who made the beautiful flower crown for Mia. I'm hoping to include more botanicals in my upcoming maternity and newborn shoots!
Another happy ending to an adoption story. And what a story they have! The way Moses came to his parents is nothing short of a miracle. I loved spending time with this sweet family and observing all the sweet moments they were experiencing as new parents. The way Ashley loved on him was just beautiful to witness. If you know her, you know how hard this girl loves her people. I loved the way John Mark kept observing little Moses' feet, in total awe of this new tiny human that BELONGS to them. Even their little pup, Chloe was checking out and loving on her new little brother! Thank you Doroughs, for allowing me to capture this sweet time in your lives!

It's pretty rare that I get to finish up editing a session the day after. But we all put SO much work into making this shoot beautiful and I wanted to show these photos to mom Jessica as soon as I possibly could. Jessica is the co-owner of a design team called Parrish Watson Design...and let me tell you...her house was SO stunning. The colors, textures, and furniture all meshed together so well and gave us so many different options for images. My absolute favorite shot of the day was when I captured Jessica laughing when she saw sweet Sam smile in his sleep. What a sweet photo of mama + babe. <3
