tuttle family session!





I seriously love the Tuttle family! They have given me the privilege of photographing them for quite a while now! But more importantly, we have been friends for years, and I sure am thankful for their friendship, the laughs, and the good food too : ) Y’all are amazing. Even though the bright sun challenged me a little technically speaking, I loved this location just a few minutes from their home. A gorgeous spot for an even more gorgeous family.

Love you guys!!!

It was OH so cold for this family’s mini session, but their darling little girls were SO good! Miss Avery and Addy were so sweet and cute and I loved photographing this family! I haven’t gone through all of them yet, but wanted to post a little preview at the onset of this week.

Thank you Beavers family! I loved working with you guys!

I adore this family. In our church we have a “network” you could say, such that if you ever needed help or there was an emergency, you have someone you could call on. Levi has been that go-to person for us, since we moved to Apex. He visits our family and shares a gospel message regularly, and we have learned a lot from him and his example. Then, to further tie us to the Kennedy family, Jen was assigned as my visiting teaching partner when we moved here, so every month for the last year and half we go out together and visit other women in our congregation to share a devotional with them and get to know them better. Jen is an amazing example of someone who is fun and uplifting, while also being incredibly selfless and thoughtful. I adore her! Throw in their amazing children into the mix—and you can see why I was so excited for this session! (When I was editing their images last night, my girls came in (when they were supposed to be in bed!) and were so excited to see Maren on my computer. They love her and so do I!

This session happened to take place on Jen’s birthday, which made it extra special. We were afraid it was going to be too cloudy, but the sun came out (birthday gift?) and we were able to get some great shots of this beautiful family. The leaves haven’t been great this year, but they seemed extra vibrant yesterday, which was an extra bonus.

Thanks so much you guys! Hope you like the pics!

This is one of my MOST favorite families… I look forward to photographing them every year, and this year did not disappoint!  Miss Madalyn was awesome like always, but little Tade, who let’s be honest, has not always loved having his picture taken (what toddler boy does?) was SO smiley and funny last night! I asked his parents what they fed him for lunch because I need to feed it to my kids! This is one of the kindest, most easy-going families and I always leave with a smile on my face. Thanks so much, Beasleys!

I know I got a little carried away with this preview, but amazing light in their bedroom + perfect angel baby = photographer’s heaven! I seriously loved every moment of photographing the beautiful Miller family, and especially their newest little girl, Gabriella! Big sister Gigi took a few minutes to warm up, but she was adorable and did such a good job being gentle with her little sister. She was so quick to try and comfort her when she cried…it was the cutest thing ever. Kelly and Tyler, thank you so much for welcoming me into your home and allowing me to photograph your family at such a special time!


I had to post this. I think it would make the most adorable Christmas card. Sleep in Heavenly peace?

We had a service night swap at church months ago, and my service was a mini-mini session! The McBrides were the winners of my little service and were so much fun to photograph! Even though we didn’t quite find the colorful fall leaves they were hoping for, we did have quite an adventure finding this spot in the grassy field. Thank you so much McBride family! Y’all are awesome!

I was thrilled to get to photograph this amazing family while they were visiting from Iowa! I got to photograph Miss Claire when she was a newborn, and couldn’t believe how much she had grown! Not every family with 5 kids could swing a mini session, but these guys are awesome. Photographing them was so fun and easy.

Thanks so much, Melessa family! Enjoy the rest of your NC visit : )

It was such an honor to photograph the beautiful Abigail and her wonderful family this week! She could not have been born into a more loving family! I was blown away by big brother Aaron! He was AMAZING holding her and being gentle.

Thank you so much, Alvey family! She is perfect in every way!

This little boy stole my heart at the very beginning! Even though he was tired and ready for dinner, Peter was adorable and was so good for his family’s mini session! He is such a lucky little guy to have such awesome parents who love him so much.

Thank you so much Lezettes!

I adore this family! They are great friends of ours and I was so honored to get to photograph them! Have you ever seen a cuter trio of kids? I don’t think so!

Thanks so much, Varkevissers! We are so thankful for your family!
