just a peek…

Maternity: Melissa

This was such a fun maternity session….Melissa is a friend & fellow photographer… and she was basically up for anything for her maternity session. Originally we had planned to have a sunrise session….but on the early morning of the shoot, some dense fog rolled in. There was no sun! We decided to brave the fog…and I’m so glad that we did! These images turned out perfect… Melissa is due in less than a week and she looks so perfectly tiny! I can’t wait to meet her new little man! :) Melissa’s gorgeous hair and makeup was done by Krystal Davis…she did an amazing job (….shoot me an email if you’d like her contact info!)



It’s not fair to look this good while pregnant! :)


Melissa, you’re gorgeous!



a thankful heart…

Just peeking in today to share a few of the thoughts of my heart….I am so thankful this day for my beautiful & wonderful mother. She has taught me so much and helped to shape me into the person I am today….she is a constant and gentle influence….who always has kind words and a hug for those in need. My mother has gone through so much in these past few months with her cancer treatments … but she has won a new strength that resonates from within her…. she has come out more beautiful than ever….and is truly inspiring. I am so thankful to have my mother in my life! (You are so beautiful Mom!)

And I am truly blessed to be mother to these two sweet darlings. I love them more than life itself. I am so lucky to be their Mama.


Wishing you all a lovely & happy mother’s day. xoxo

Ellie-Beans & Xoxotova

Just sharing a few images from a fun clothing shoot. The fabulous Angela of Ellie-Beans contacted me a few months ago, asking if I would photograph a few of her custom handmade outfits. I jumped at the offer….and I am in love with her work! She has such an eye for combining beautiful fabrics & colors….I love these outfits! Tanya from Xoxotova sent over these adorable custom hair accessories to match….love all of these! They are so much fun! Go have a peek at their etsy stores….they are filled with so many pretties! Ellie-Beans & Xoxotova.
