Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

I cannot believe it’s already Christmas Eve–and consequently, pretty much my favorite week of the entire year. With that being said, I wanted to share with you a little holiday cheer from our family to yours. Now that the Christmas cards have been mailed out and presents have been wrapped, I wanted to send the same cheer to YOU that we sent out in the mail. Scout came into our little family just a couple of weeks after we took these photos, so she isn’t in them–but I’m pretty sure I’ve been overloading social media enough with photos of her, anyhow. (:

We are so grateful for the new friends, clients, and relationships we have had the pleasure of cultivating this year. From our family to yours, we wish you the merriest Christmas.2014-12-24_0001 2014-12-24_0002

I will be out of the office for the remainder of the year (including blogging), to spend some precious time with family and friends soaking up these holidays. Normal office hours will resume on Monday, January 5, 2015.


Garner Family | Lincoln, NE Family Photographer

One of the luxuries I’m abundantly grateful for this year is the opportunity to photograph new families, friends, and love all around the country. When photographing in a location during travels, it makes me as wide-eyed as a kid in Disneyland to find new, untouched nooks to photograph my beautiful clients. While in Nebraska, I couldn’t have stumbled upon a more picturesque location. Angie dressed her sweet family impeccably for a cozy little winter session, and I just adore how much winter wonderland oozes from the scene.

Angie and Garrett have two beautiful boys, and they were such troopers in the chilly weather. I was secretly really hoping to photograph in snow while I was there, but I know they who are used to long, cold Winters didn’t share the same sentiment. (:2014-12-23_00132014-12-23_00122014-12-23_0015

Either way, I couldn’t adore these boys and this little cozy sesh more.2014-12-23_0011 2014-12-23_0009 2014-12-23_0008 2014-12-23_0010 2014-12-23_0007

So much lovin’–it just fills my little holiday heart to the brim. Angie and Garrett, from the bottom of my heart, I’m so gracious for your trust in my capturing your beautiful family. Until next time…2014-12-23_0004 2014-12-23_0001 2014-12-23_0014



Seaside Romance: Editorial | The Cottages on Charleston Harbor

During my recent travels, I had the utmost pleasure of photographing this seaside editorial on Charleston’s charming harbor. Soft hues, mixed textures, and the most romantic florals–I couldn’t have been more enamored with the detail. And I’d just love to talk about this TO-DIE Carol Hannah gown, but I’m pretty sure it speaks volumes all on its own.

I may have gotten carried away photographing the natural details along the beach while shooting, but gah, I just couldn’t resist. All of the natural elements that pieced so perfectly with the planned elements of this shoot just had my little heart jumping for joy.2014-12-18_0015 2014-12-18_0001 2014-12-18_00142014-12-18_0010 2014-12-18_0005

Harmon Family | Louisiana Family Photographer

This time of year just makes me so ooey gooey with all of the sweet family lovin’. Here’s another one of my most precious families. I absolutely cannot get enough of Kenzie’s personality and Luke’s chubby cheeks.

Look at this girl–bright-eyed and care free. Yes please.2014-12-16_0008 2014-12-16_0007 2014-12-16_0009 2014-12-16_0010

Teehee, I just adore Luke’s face in this one–almost as much as his perfect tweed baby trousers.2014-12-16_0001 2014-12-16_0012

That smile. Oh, I think I could squeeze him forever.2014-12-16_0014 2014-12-16_0013Alex and Matt, thank you for entrusting me with documenting your beautiful little family of four. I wish you the most joyful holiday season.2014-12-16_0005 2014-12-16_0011


A Lincoln, Nebraska Engagment | Winter Wonderland: Stacy + Chase

We met 3 years ago on a spontaneous phone call and clicked instantly. Little did I know, the things that make up who she is would become entangled so perfectly with the pieces that make up my own soul and make her a dear, lifelong friend. We now make it a point to travel to see one another regularly–something I cherish infinitely. I was in for a treat on my last trip to the Midwest, as I finally got to meet the most serving, gentle-hearted man I could imagine her spending the rest of her life with. Chase and Stacy, I cannot wait to stand NEXT to you as you share your vows to spend the rest of this lifetime together. Your happiness together truly fills my heart to the brim.

I’m not actually Stacy’s wedding photographer, as I am standing in her wedding, however, we had a little free time during my visit to snap a few sweet shots of them. Beautiful Midwestern roads that look like a Winter Wonderland–I just couldn’t resist.Dupont ConstructionDupont Construction Dupont ConstructionCan we discuss the great points involved in a man wearing a scarf?
