Welcome to The Blog. Take a look around to see some of my recent work and the stories behind the images. 

The end of summer delivered to me the privilege of photographing the youngest member of one of my favorite families. Stacey is the final Anderson to make it to the end of a well-played high school career. Because he is the baby, the entire family came out to share in the moments being captured. Grandma, […]

Ms. Phyllis contacted me to schedule a session for her family, some of whom had never had professional portraits taken. She was so sweet, but I could tell she was nervous. Nervous about the whole idea of a photo session. Nervous that the little people might not cooperate. Nervous about what to wear. Just nervous. […]

“Now that was a party!” I overheard this sentiment, expressed by a young child as she and her parents left the reception and thought to myself, “She is so right!” I can say a lot of great things about LaPorsha and Jamayle’s wedding, but the first to come to mind would be that they sure […]

LaPorsha & Jamayle

I’ll be honest. I struggled with the title of this post for a second. After typing “Braxton’s Senior Session,” and realizing that he’s no longer a high school senior, it was back to the drawing board. After all, he has been out of high school for three whole weeks. That part of life is ancient […]

    Today, my friends, is a day of denial. That little chubby-cheeked baby that turned me into a gushing Godmother is sixteen years old today. SIXTEEN! I can’t even believe it. I still wonder when he had time to grow up. It seemed like just yesterday that I was stealing him away from his […]

Josiah Turns 16-What?

January 3, 2021

The unprecedented year of 2020 has finally come to a close. For many, this has been the worst year yet-job loss, death and sickness, an unsteady economy, and a seemingly hovering cloud of doom looming over the world. Although the year has had its many downs, it was also filled with lessons, love, and many […]

Since today is the last day of November, also known as Adoption Awareness Month, let me introduce you to the final family in SDP’s adoption interview series. I met Julie during lunch breaks at an elementary school where we both worked at the time. I remember overhearing a conversation she was having with someone (yes, […]

For the second spotlight on families that have made the life-changing decision to grow their families through adoption, I want to highlight the inspiration for this blog series. I was first introduced to Julia when a “photogra-friend”  tagged me in a post in a photography FB group.  Julia was looking for someone in the Louisville/Southern […]

For the first spotlight on families that chose adoption as a way to grow their families, I chose to highlight a family close to my heart. Ashley and I used to work together as elementary teachers. Not only a great mom of three beautiful kids and teacher, Ashley loves children and has worked to advocate […]
