Eleanor Ruth Nicholas

born may 17 — photographed at one week old <3 

I always deliver galleries to clients with color/ black & white copies of each image and typically blog a little of each too! But something about b&w newborn images gets me — so here is Eleanor, sweet, seven days old, and in black & white.

Sarah + Dillon

These two are so full of love for one another & for Christ — what a joyful day to document & celebrate.  The rain may have washed out most all of our plans, but the Sidebottoms' love still shines through it all. Take a look at how beautiful their day was this past Saturday, May 5th, 2018.

Booker — 8 Months

I can't believe it was sunny and in the high 60's when I shot these photos only FIVE days ago —here I am today blogging this session while there are snow flurries outside! April in Kentucky may be crazy, but I'm dreaming of warmer days and sweet sessions like this for the rest of the spring season! Contact me soon if you're interested in a Spring mini session — we can make a whole lot of magic in 30 minutes together! Scroll down for further proof :)

sophie — at home

how is it possible that one of my best friends is due in less than two weeks?! here are some of my favorites we made in soph & ben's boxed-up apartment a couple weeks ago before they moved. grateful we got to use this sweet space with beautiful light, hardwood floors and angled ceilings before they left!
