Sapp Wedding — March 11, 2017

While working with Paige Logan Photography, l was able to shoot a handful of weddings on my own & I’m finally sharing some favorites from Sarah & Blake’s wedding early this year! (Thank you to Whitney Woodall for second shooting!) Hopefully this will give you a better taste of my wedding work! I’m so excited to start shooting more weddings on my own this year. Now booking weddings for 2018!

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!

thankful for families who are patient when it rains & reschedule multiple times to hold out for the good light — we definitely found it! it was a beautifully crisp evening with the Davis family with lots of running, dancing & snuggling to keep these girls warm!

Admittedly, I've wanted to photograph the Norwood family since the day I met Leanna. She is effortlessly beautiful and kind. (Plus, she has two of the sweetest guys too!) So excited this wasn't our last time together — more to come when baby boy #2 arrives in March!

evelyn — one year

I've been documenting the Nicholas family since Emily was pregnant with Evelyn! I can't believe she is already one year old & that I'm lucky to have the most loyal clients. (I've photographed their maternity, newborn, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and 1 year sessions!) I can't wait to keep watching & photographing this little girl grow up!

malabrigo heritage

I've been so lucky to work on yet another project with Hannah, the queen of kitting and all-things-yarn! (In case you missed it, her book Slow Knitting comes out this October & I photographed the book in its entirety!) We just wrapped up a project for Malabrigo Yarns called Malabrigo Heritage, a digital collection full of photos/ essays/ knitting patterns that comes out in September! We shot photos of all the pieces (sweaters, cowls & hats!) on a hot July day in Nashville, TN — you wouldn't think it was sweltering weather by looking at the beautiful models. Here are a few sneak peeks of some of my favorite pieces in the Heritage collection — enjoy!
