You may remember this precious face on my Facebook page yesterday...

Today is the day to feature Ella! : ) While I always love the opportunity to photograph EVERY baby that I can : ), there IS a little something extra wonderful when I get to photograph a baby born to a close friend. Ella's mom, Allie, and I have been friends since high school. I can remember us in dance class and yearbook together like it was yesterday.

I was honored and humbled when Allie and Matt asked me to take photos of their fourth-month-old baby girl. Isn't she the sweetest? She has so many great expressions, and I loved the QT with her parents. : )  Allie and Matt are such naturals, and I am so proud of them! Congrats on your beautiful little bundle!

Allie MADE this mobile. How talented is she?! Mad skills!

I love Ella's nursery!

Ella looks like she's thinking about something really deeply here. : )

EEEEEE! One of my absolute faves!

Sometimes the crying ones are precious too...!

LOVE the chubby legs!!!

Love her little lips here...

That adorable black mop (hehe) in the right-hand side of the frame is their pup, Fleury. He's so stinkin' cute! For a better look at his awesome coat, go HERE. : )

I love how Ella's looking at Allie here. Melts my heart.


I'm leaving for France early tomorrow morning for a week to shoot a wedding! Ahhhh! I'll have very limited access to email while I'm gone, so thank you in advance for your patience while I'm traveling. Since I'll be out of the country for a week, I wanted to leave some anxious couples with a few teaser photos... : ) BETH + MARK ENGAGED!

TRACY + CHRIS MARRIED! (with a few shots from my second shooter, Courtney Potter, included!)


Beautiful, beautiful Amy. It was such a treat to photograph Amy's bridal session. Isn't she glamorous? Amy was married last weekend (more to come on that!), and we did her bridal shoot last March in Charlotte, North Carolina. During the latter portion of the session, we bumped into another group doing a shoot for vintage chic furniture. (Hello! Major SCORE!) "Happy Chair" let us incorporate some of their pieces for the shoot. We were so grateful and happy to oblige! : ) (Email me if you would like the owner's contact information on renting/buying pieces.) Without further rambling, here's a glimpse of sweet Amy!


I've known Katie since our preschool days and she's always been the light of a room. Her personality is just so electric -- you meet her and you instantly feel like you've been friends for a long time. I met Matt the day of the shoot, and I felt the same way about him so this pair is perfect for each other! Katie and Matt's ease with each other throughout the afternoon was a breath of fresh air. And they were a dream to work with -- all I had to do was pull out their inner-models. ; ) We started out the shoot in downtown Belmont and then finished up at Katie's parent's beautiful lake-front home. We also incorporated Katie's dad's Corvette, which was a fun prop. Enjoy this tender couple!
