Expecting Their First Child | Memphis Maternity Photographer

This sweet couple is anxiously awaiting the arrival of their first baby and even better they do not know yet if they are having a boy or girl!  Lucky for me, they are a part of my Baby Plan and I will get to be seeing their little one three more times over coming year!  I am so excited to see them snuggle with their newborn soon!

Spring Maternity Session | Collierville Pregnancy Photographer

We scheduled her maternity session on a dreary day but we lucked out with a magnificent blooming tree and some wonderful string lights in downtown Collierville.  The mom doesn't know yet what she is having, but I told her I think that the beautiful pink tree was a sign!  This family has become members of my Baby Plan, so there will be many more images of this sweet third child in the coming year!

Three girls and a Dad | Collierville Family Photographer

I am always leery of posting fall family photos too soon before Christmas because I don't want to ruin the surprise of a family's Christmas card, but hello?!?! how did I never share these?!?!  I am lucky to call them my dear friends and while these were taken two years ago I just loved their energy, smiles and love so much that I just had to share it!

Simply Dressed | Memphis Newborn Photographer

Most of the newborns that I photograph are either wrapped in a swaddle or in a simple onsie, so I was so excited to see this sweet girl in a white vintage dress!  I don't know that it could have fit her more perfectly and it didn't seem to phase her one bit because she never woke up during our newborn photo session.  I definitely loved the word art in the nursery and the bassinet that she ultimate took the rest of her nap in was so stunning.  Congrats Mary Martin on rocking your first photo shoot!

Blonde Brothers | Collierville Family Photographer

These blonde brothers were so sweet to one another. They are less than two years apart and really loved on one another during their family session.  And there were no shortage of poses from Henry - he has the side lean, cross the legs and killer smile down!  I called it his heartbreaker pose!

Family of Three | Collierville Photographer

I seemed to time the fall colors just right for this family session, which can be tricky when the weather changes twenty degrees from one day to the next here in Memphis!  Despite the fall colors we had a relatively warm day to play, snuggle, laugh and pick flowers!  Toddlers keep me on my toes but Virginia's personality certainly shined through!

Baby Boy Turns 1 | Memphis Baby Photographer

When you have made it through your son or daughter's first year, there is reason to celebrate!  This family of three did just that and drove all the way from Jackson, TN to meet with me!  They both worked and got married at the Botanical Gardens of Memphis and wanted to head back there to document their little guy's first year milestone.  It was a bit chilly but the light was stunning and of course the location gave us a ton of different options.  I loved seeing his personality show in different ways and I definitely documented all sides of it!  Welcome to toddlerhood!

2017...What a Year!

I am more and more grateful each and every year for every client that comes my way and entrusts me to document these special moments in their lives! To me, "client" is such a weird word, as I feel like I have become friends with so many of the moms I have photographed!  

In 2017, I photographed families with dogs, families that just moved to Memphis, families that were leaving Memphis, families that are survivors, extended families, new families through adoption,  and families that loved hard and laughed harder.

Thank you everyone for making 2017 a year to remember!  

2017 Outakes

Because when there you take over 15,000 photos in a year there will be moments that just don't go right.  These are those moments that made me laugh, or pause, or wish I would have gotten it right.  And I began to notice a clear pattern for when my son did not want his photo taken...he gave me crazy eyes or some way or another covered his face.  And when my husband didn't want his photo taken, well, he used a different method.  I tried getting in more photos and when a 6 year old is taking your photo, you can see how that went.  Such a fun way to look back at 2017!

Favorite 17 of 2017

Each year I like to review the over 15,000 personal photos I take and select my personal favorites as best I can...so here we go!  (top 17 and one to grow on!).  Now I need to stick to my other yearly tradition and put these together with my other 100+ favorites in our annual family album!
