Well this little guy is absolutely adorable! He just kept on smiling (oh newborn smiles melt my heart!) and seemed to already know how much he is adored.Congratulations Frost family! Your love for each other is beautiful and I am so happy for you guys.
My sister and I fought a lot growing up as most siblings do I think. She is also my best friend and has been by my side through every season of my life. Now we get to go through all the craziness of motherhood together! And when I look at these girls, who are full of very different personalities, I pray that they have that in each other. A very best friend.
These sweet friends are very special to me. I’ve loved doing life with them over the past 5 years: watching their love for each other grow, get married, and now, become parents! They have trusted me to photograph all these big moments in their lives, and to say I am honored is a serious understatement.
Witnessing the birth of their beautiful daughter was the most incredible experience I’ve had as a photographer. Marguerite “Margot” Privet Payne was born on December 23rd all natural, caught by her father, and immediately placed on her mother’s chest.
The next weekend, on Morgan’s birthday, I came to their home to do a lifestyle session. Which is probably one of my favorite things to photograph.Morgan and Jordan, thank you for trusting me to capture these special moments for you. I love you guys and am so excited for your beautiful little family!
These are our people. My entire family adores them. We were beyond excited for them to become a family of five and I, of course was super stoked to document their new addition. Welcome to the world little Ezra.
I watched Blake grow from a kid into a fine young man. I watched him fall in love with the most kind and gentle young lady, who loves Jesus and brings out the best in Blake. I am beyond excited for them as they make the leap into marriage and a lifelong covenant. I’m honored they have asked me to document it.
We did a quick engagement session before they left home and moved to Georgia to pursue missional work in a community they feel called to. We had a great time hanging out and getting a little wet at Mead’s Quarry. These love birds will be married this October.
so I haven’t even attempted a blog post in well over a year. I am basically winning at this. I have however done lots of sessions that I would love to share so maybe this time….maybe…I’ll do better.
This family is very dear to my heart. They bring us soup when we are sick, pour into our children, and just love and lead us so well. I am forever grateful they are a part of our life. Here are a few of my favs from their session on my parent’s property.
This month was a bit of a whirlwind. I turned 30 and celebrated with my mama (who turned 50) with a Cinco De Mayo Fiesta and all the Mexican food I could fit in my body for about a week straight. My sweet Mamaw surprised me with 6 baby chicks as a birthday gift after I’ve talked everyone’s ear off about getting chickens the past several months. They have been a fun little addition to the family, but I am definitely ready for them to be outdoor pets. In other news, school is out and the pool is open! We are SO excited for all the freedom that summer provides, to slow down and just enjoy this sweet season.
Here is what march with the Angels looked like. Spring break with snow, a little Chattanooga getaway to visit friends and T learned to ride without training wheels. Bring on Spring!
Here’s what our February looked like.
Yup, record high temps in the high 70s had us pretending it was summer.
Ah, I can’t wait til summer.
I love shooting my children. They are my favorite subjects. Photographing them has grown me a lot as a photographer, and a person. Life at home with three little ones can be very difficult, and its a creative outlet for me to photograph our days. Over time, I’ve come to realize these photographs serve a much bigger purpose. God uses them as incredible little reminders of how beautiful this life is. Challenging me to just be thankful when I feel like I’m at the end of my rope. And although these days at home sometimes seem long and daunting, the years are short. I love looking back at how they’ve grown, remembering each little stage, and smiling. because wow they are some incredible little people and I am SO thankful to be their mama.
so my goal here is to share some of my favorite personal photos each month. Here is what our January looked like:
