Kirk + Whitney= LOVE

I've only known Whitney for a short time, but I can honestly say I don't know if I've met another person so sweet and cheerful as this girl. She is just pure sunshine. And when she is with her hubby, Kirk, she glows even more. As a photographer I can direct poses and control light, but the sweetness and purity of real love can't ever be forced. It's just there. And this couple has it in spades.

Thanks Kirk and Whitney, for loving Jesus above all else, for loving each other with such simplicity, and for allowing me the privilege to see so much love through my lens....

My girl.

What do I even start to say about this girl? That she is one of my best friends isn't really enough. That we have been friends since the awkward age of 12 won't work either. She is simply one of my favorite people in this world, and her friendship over the years has helped shape my life. Ever since we were 13, we've loved to play with our cameras and busted out our "top model" poses whenever we had the chance! Well, some things never change. Now that both of us are in the photography business, our "playing" has gotten much more complicated...and much more fun! Amidst dSLRs, softboxes, reflectors, diffusers, and all, we both still have just a simple love of the camera and the amazing things it can do. It was so fun to spend time with Heather in the HH Art and Photography studio, "playing" with all of the things we love most!

No modeling session is complete without some beauty shots...and I'm a little obsessed with these.

Thanks for a fun day, Heath. I love you.

Introducing...BRODY JAMES!!

You might recognize this gorgeous couple from many (many) past sessions. I can't help it- my camera just never gets sick of Jon and Erica...they are too beautiful! And now, they have welcomed their first baby into this world...the absolutely adorable, Brody James. Not only is this kid destined to be gorgeous (look at his parents!) but he is so sweet and cuddly. Plus, I can't help but l.o.v.e his full head of hair! It was so fun to once again photograph Jon and Erica...I'm so excited to watch their family grow.

The M Family

Jason, Michelle and I went to high school together. They were one of those couples who never dated "back then" and ended up falling in love years later. That seemed to happen a lot at our small Christian school.....even to me and my own cute hubby, Tim! It was so much fun to hang out with them the other night and to meet their sweet little guy, Eddie. What a good baby he is.....and SO in love with his momma. It makes my heart smile every time I see a family so in love with each other, and my heart was smiling A LOT while photographing these guys. Thanks, M family, for allowing me to simply follow you around with my camera and capture so many of your sweet moments!

Could this family seriously be any cuter?!


 Just a little boy, dreaming of that home run...

Presenting the VERY Adorable.....Ellianna!!

This beautiful baby girl just so happens to be my newest niece! Isn't she the sweetest?!? Her parents have waited such a long time for this little girl, and the amount of love they have for her is breathtaking to see. I was pregnant with my second son right along with my sister-in-law Sarah, which made pregnancy (and all of the pregnancy adventures) even more special! I'm SO thankful to be part of this long anticipated time...and already a very proud auntie!

Could these shoes be any cuter?!

Welcome to the family, are so loved!!
