Hannah is one of those people who’s smile lights up a room✨. So sweet and kind, she and her sister gifted their Mom a session to celebrate a milestone birthday.  We captured so many beautiful memories that day.

  • We may not have it all together, but together we have it all✨
Back from a fabulous girls weekend with my two sisters and three sister ‘outlaws’, feeling SO thankful to have this abundance of love, support  and connection with my family ❤️
Also thankful to feel #recharged to start this week, after a bounty of sunshine, beach time, fruity drinks and laughter!  We all need to step off of the hamster wheel some days... agree?😊

  • Capping off the week with this absolutely stunning portrait of Angela ✨ 
I photographed Angela with the @cabiclothing group that you may remember from a few recents posts - a fun portrait party that day! 
After the group Cabi photos, Angela opted to wear a dress from my studio wardrobe, and let me photograph a few #magazinestyle portraits of just her.  To document and celebrate this moment in her life.  My heart sings when I can create a portrait so true to yourself that you smile from ear to ear,  every single time you look at it. 
Printed photographs are forever ✨
EXIST in photographs.  For yourself, for your family.

  • #behindthescenes from today’s uber fun shoot with beautiful bubbly Christy ✨
I do take posing very seriously, and have definitely worked hard to step up my ‘mirror me’ (copy what I’m doing) game, so that it’s very easy for you my clients. 
However, have  NO clue what I’m doing with my hand here LOL 😂
Any guesses?! Leave ‘ em in the comments.
