2017 Year In Review| Pregnancy Announcement | 1st Birthday | Clayton, NC Children and Family Photographer

The exciting part about my job is that when a couple is expecting; I’m usually one of the first people to know!  Courtney had scheduled Adilyn’s 1st birthday photos with me, but also threw in the surprise of adding to their family!

Little Adilyn absolutely rocked her 1st birthday photos in a stunning little number that was super adorable!  She looked like a little 50’s movie star!  I seriously could not handle the cuteness!

I also got to shoot their fall family and maternity photos; so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for that session on the blog too!

I can’t wait to meet new little Frady baby SOON!



2017 Year In Review | Memorial Session for Bella | Clayton, NC Family Photographer

This next session is very difficult to write about; let alone how hard it was to shoot.

The Gavin family’s beloved Bella became sick and they knew their time with her was limited.  Knowing this, Dianna asked me if I could come to their home to capture a few moments with her and the family to be able to remember her.  We were able to capture some special moments between the kids Bella and the other fur babies.

I’m glad that I was able to help preserve these last moments the Gavins had with their Bella.



2017 Year In Review | Weight Loss Journey | Clayton, NC Photographer

I’ve been REALLY bad in keeping my website updated.  So, I am going to start with my early sessions and work my way to the end of 2017!  I’m determined that in 2018 I will keep my website/blog current!

So, with that being said… let’s start with Eva’s session from March 2017.

Eva has been working hard on her goals for weight loss, fitness, and quality of life.  She is a frequent flyer at CrossFit Clayton and recently completed the Rocky Run Marathon!  Her determination to make huge changes in her lifestyle led to her completion of weight loss goals as well as fitness goals!  This isn’t the end however…once you start a fitness/lifestyle journey you keep going.

We also did a part 2 to Eva’s session to include her hubby Chris and corgi Cady.  If I remember right, they hadn’t had professional photos done since their wedding!  I love when clients want updated photos!




Taft High School Grad | MN Winter Senior Session | Clayton, NC High School Senior Photographer

So, let’s just confuse everyone now.  My nephew who is a 2017 grad from Taft High School in San Antonio, TX was in Minnesota last Christmas.  We were also in Minnesota celebrating Christmas with our all our families!  My nephew asked that I do his senior photos while we had time.  Which was about 45 minutes at the Holiday Inn.  Let me tell you, that was a challenge in of itself.  But, good thing he is so handsome!  We were able to knock out a few photos and got in the all-important water polo shots!  The last winter shot was taken up North at my mother in law’s place when the boys were splitting wood.

Message me to plan your senior session to reflect you!
