It was you all along. It was your hands I’d feel inside of me, how you put them in fists by your face and move them in circles. I felt that inside. It was your elbows and knees I’d see poking out through my belly. It was your head I was referring to when I kept asking my family, “have I dropped yet?!” It was you who I prayed for, even before you were conceived. It was you who I sang to and talked to all day and night. It was you who erased my waistline and gave me nausea, the mommy waddle, every food aversion, hormonal acne, nerve pain, and explosive burps. It was you who I have loved, and love even more now that we’ve officially met in the fresh air. My precious London Joanne, you are the most beautiful gift and I love being your Mommy.Read More
We couldn't be happier to be writing this post! Our beautiful, precious daughter has finally arrived, and we are so grateful and in love.

Well, here we are at the third trimester now! We are counting down the weeks until baby girl arrives! I still can't believe I'm pregnant. It's the most amazing journey and blessing that I don't take for granted.Read More
She has finally arrived! And let me tell you - this little girl is SO loved.
These photos are so special to us since this precious baby girl is my NIECE! She's the first grand baby on both sides of the family! It has been fun being pregnant with my older sister, Lauren, and I've been learning from her labor/delivery/taking-care-of-baby stories!Read More
Meet the Kline family!
I have known Kaylea and her family for over 17 years! Her family started attending the same church in 1999, and we became great friends with her family. I have hundreds of great memories growing up with them in South Western Missouri! Some of my favorites were our camping trips and patriotic events. And of course, all the caroling we did in little towns, Christmas parties, and so many other memories to be thankful for!
We were so happy to capture their little family on a beautiful late, fall day.
Dan, thank you for your service, your sacrifice, and your courage to defend this great country.Read More
Watching your friends start a family is so exciting and absolutely beautiful! Christa and Justin attend our church in Weddington [Graceway Baptist Church], and Justin is on staff. Christa, you were a radiant pregnant lady, but you are a more beautiful Mommy. We loved taking photos of baby Grayson and getting to be a part of his first week of life. God is amazing!Read More
My Fiancé, Jennifer, and I had the pleasure of doing a photo shoot for some of our wonderful friends, Justin and Christa. They scheduled the photo shoot without us knowing the real reason for it. "Just because" photo shoots are wonderful for couples to document their love, but there was more going on...
A few days before the shoot, Christa told us what they had up their sleeve. The plan was to use the photos for a birth announcement! We loved every moment of our time together, and we couldn't be happier with how they turned out!Read More
When owner Kalin Sheick (view her blog post here) of Stems & Sprigs reached out to me to shoot a baby shower for her best friend, I was more than happy to be the photographer! The shower was hosted by Sugar Creek Brewing Co., and rentals from Vintage Charlotte.
Congrats Grant and Mollie and baby Lyman! Here are some moments captured from the evening.Read More
I had the pleasure of doing a session for six day old Jackson today. He was quite the amiable little fellow, with nary a peep nor cry. Beautiful son and mother!Read More
Can I just say that getting taking photographs for the Carrasco's was a blast. Santiago's fun humor made us all laugh and enjoy the beautiful afternoon. Excited for their little girl on the way. Teresa was very lovely, and Jennifer and I had so much fun doing this session for them.Read More
