The Lail's // Cloudy Orlando Family Session

I always talk about how much I love photographing families- but what I love even more is the opportunity to photograph families overtime & document them as they grow. I first met the Lail’s a few years back in an at home newborn session for their first daughter. Here we are now, years later, with new additions & this time playing in a field, but still as cute as ever.

It had been raining all day- Corrie & I were texting back & forth trying to decide whether or not to reschedule. Ultimately, we went for it & I’m so glad we did. The drizzle stopped just as we were arriving & the clouds made for a cozy vibe. Wrangling the babies & convincing toddlers to smile is a near impossible feat, but we had fun trying & I love the realness of these images.

Cheers to more sessions together & watching your sweet family grow!

The Ferraro's // A Sunset Field Family Session

Man, I love photographing families. There is something so beautiful about the craziness, the unpredictability, the chaos. Without fail, the kids never do what you want them to. They rarely smile on command or stand in the perfect light. But they run through the grass laughing, roll in the dirt grinning ear to ear, kiss their sibling as they wrestle them to the ground & hug their dads neck as he swings them into the air. I’m not a parent, but if I were, that’s what I would want hanging on my walls anyways. I would want to see my family just as they are- not totally in line, but having fun while trying.

The Ferraro’s were incredible. They simply existed in this field, hanging out & trusting me to capture them just as they were- happy, content, & loving on one another.

Derrick & Erika // Atlanta Sweetwater Brewing Wedding

I’ll tell you what- it doesn’t get any more chill than Derrick & Erika. We hung out in a brewery, grabbing a lil beer anytime we’d walk passed a draft station. We danced around the rooftop at dusk, “cheers-ing” & taking in Erika’s contagious laughter & Derrick’s steady kindness. And when I asked Erika where Derrick’s wedding ring was she grinningly answered “ well probably on a UPS truck somewhere in Atlanta, maybe getting delivered by 5pm, but mayyyyybe not.” And that’s just pretty much how the day went- it felt like a Saturday with friends who also just happened to be getting married.

It was a joy being with them & their kind, bright spirits had me driving home with a giant smile on my face. I felt truly lucky to spend that day in celebration with them.

Nick & Lindsay // Casa Feliz Winter Park Wedding

Nick & Lindsay are carefree, kind, silly & true adventurers to their core. From the moment we met, I could feel their lightness. They approached the wedding day with such sincerity- letting the details fall where they may & truly living in the moments of celebrating their love. 

Nick is a super talented photographer & it was really cool to see how he incorporated his skills into the day. He had various cameras by his side along the way, capturing moments from his perspective. 

All in all, they are incredible people & I hope you enjoy.

Corey & Annie // Serenbe Georgia Wedding

I almost have no words for how perfect this was. 

From the full of character getting ready houses, to the impeccable style of every little detail, to the sprawling fields & towering forest- & those are only the visuals. 

More notably, Corey & Annie fully immersed themselves in the gravity of the day. The tender notes written, worshipping while exchanging vows, the intimacy of holding one another at dusk when we stole away to the horse field- they dwelled in each moment as it came. 

It was an honor to bear witness to this beautiful union. I hope you feel it all as you scroll through their story.

David & Kiana // Rollins Chapel Winter Park Racquet Club Wedding

Kiana & David- some of the sweetest people around. Add in their next level fun family & friends & it was hard for the day to anything short of a blast. Plus any day that includes a sunset cruise is top notch in my book. I love the Rollins Chapel/ Winter Park Racquet Club combo for this very reason- so many pockets of good light & photo goodness! 

Enjoy <3

Keith & Andia // Intimate At Home Maternity Session

We settled onto the floor of their living room. It was raining, there was a Laura Mvula record playing over the sound of the drizzle. When Andia scheduled the session a few weeks before, the significance of the date was lost in the bustle of coordinating calendars, but sitting there then, exactly 1 year to the day, since their dear son was laid to rest, it felt divinely arranged. I watched as Keith & Andia each created a piece of art inspired by the memory of their son. They worked quietly, periodically breaking to exchange a smile or admire the others progress. 

The pieces were hung by their bed, followed by a slow dance of covenant embraces. With every sway, every step, I could feel their joyful anticipation for this new child filling the room. Andia's radiant smile, they way her head tilted towards the heavens in laughter. Keith's tender grasp on her stomach, the gaze in his eyes when they were resting on her.

It was holy ground.
