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 :)

mayfield family

what a treat it was to make photos of another WKU photojournalism alumna! I've known Katie for several years — we met when I was just starting the WKUPJ program & she was finishing up! I'm so glad our paths crossed again last week & I got to photograph her little family before Thanksgiving when she was back in Bowling Green. enjoy the beautiful Mayfield family!
