Ilana + Adrian {newborn twins!}

Welcome to the world sweet Ilana and Adrian! These beautiful babes were born to my friends Sarah and Brandon. I first met Sarah years ago during orientation at our first jobs out of nursing school. Even though we worked in different units we stayed in touch regularly. When I had a scare at work while pregnant with Ellie I got whisked up to L&D and Sarah's face was the first face that I saw and I just started to cry--Sarah exudes that warmth and care. So I was ecstatic to hear about her pregnancy and the news of TWINS! :) It was an honor and pleasure to meet her growing family and to take newborn photographs of the little darlings in the comfort and intimacy of their home. You guys are so blessed to have such awesome parents!

Charmainne + Deven {engaged!}

Most of you guys know that I'm a nurse full-time {photography is my side hustle}. Well, Charmainne and I go way back. You see...I started my nursing career with her on night shift on the same unit. She was there when I had to stick my first live patient with an IV {so much blood everywhere...}, we helped each other hang meds, answer call bells, change patients and give bed baths. So many memories! So when I found out that Charmainne and her main squeeze Deven were getting hitched I had to photograph these two lovebirds myself. We were joined by our friends Emma and Austin (also nurses!) and made a day of it at Planting Fields. Congratulations to the happy couple!

Michael {happy first birthday!}

Michael, Paul and Helen's darling son, turns one next month. And what better way to commemorate this milestone birthday than with a mini photoshoot?! This family rocked it with multiple outfit changes, a cake smash, and a last minute schedule change due to weather. It's always hard trying to get a baby to focus and look at the camera but mom and dad were skillful in keeping him occupied and giggling even when he was ever-so-slightly sleep deprived on an early Sunday morning. Happy birthday sweet boy!

Hello summer!

Hi friends!

If you are still reading this, man, I gotta hand it to you. I haven't updated or posted new content in over two months. I have to admit that working full-time and managing a baby did not come easy for me so unfortunately photography had to take a back seat. Serious shout out to all the first-time parents out there! I'm hoping to make a comeback this summer so please stay tuned for more content. And of course if you are looking to book a mini-session with me this summer please hit me up! And here's another totally-gratuitous-but-not-really photo of my girl.

Aven + Benjamin {newborn twins!}

Jane and Peter are dear, dear friends of ours and we are overjoyed that they are now a wonderful family of FOUR! Aven and Benjamin made their grand debut a month ago and they are absolutely precious. We are so thankful to the Lord for their arrival and so happy that Ellie has new friends!
