So whenever a family contacts me wanting a maternity session, whether it’s their first baby or their fourth, I get so excited! The Armstrong family wanted to document their family of three before the birth of their […]

Savannah and I met via Instagram and connected through our mutual love of reading and the Lord. She and her husband, Nate, moved here to Huntsville not too long ago and found out they […]

One of my favorite things to do during my pregnancies is design the nursery. I’ve had three boys now, but I love to give them their own special rooms and designs. I spend so much time in their nurseries with them as babies, changing, rocking, and singing to them. It’s precious time that I hold […]

GET TO KNOW ME

As a mother of three, I know just how rapidly time passes and that the moments you so desperately want to hold onto quickly fade into memories. It's my passion to capture your season of life in a way that allows you to look back and remember exactly how it all felt - the way your newborn fit into the bend of your arm, your toddler's hand wrapped so easily in yours, and the way your family found joy in the chaos and the mundane. I hope to tell your story authentically and timelessly.

it's nice to meet you.
