I knew from the first phone call with Leigh that I’d love her. Her vision for her day was as laid back as she is, and yet, so very thoughtful. She and Hans were married in front of their family and close friends at Gallaher Mansion at Cranbury Park and their reception at Greybarns Inn […]

Molly and I started following each other on Instagram about a year ago, and I knew from Day One that we’d be friends. She loves all the good foods, she takes BEAUTIFUL pictures of all the good foods (check out her Instagram here), and she loves Alex. Their love for each other is truly one […]

Many of you know that both my sister, Meredith, and I were adopted at birth. After many, many years of infertility, my parents adopted me in 1989. I was an only child for five and a half years, and then little Meredith came along in 1995. And Meredith has been a spitfire from.day.one. I say […]

This is a very real look at what miscarriage looks like in my life. If you’re sensitive to this topic, or you don’t want to read something very personal, please feel free to skip this post. My intention is not to make you uncomfortable, just to remind you that you are not alone in your […]

For the first time in many moves, I feel like I can truly make this space my own. While our other homes were beautiful, this one has a killer combo of great bones, all the character, and potential out the wazoo. When we first came to view the apartment, I knew it had all the […]

Blog readers, meet Maison, one of the most photogenic almost-one-year-olds I’ve ever met. His mom emailed me a few weeks ago about a mommy and me session at Short Beach, and I was obviously excited about it! Maison will be one in March, and he is the most perfectly plump little guy you’ve ever seen. […]

We move often. In 2014, Jared got out of the Army and we moved from the home we bought in Savannah in to my parents’ home (also in Savannah). I lived with them during the Jared’s last deployment, and then we moved to Oregon. We lived with Jared’s parents there for a while before moving […]

Before we moved from New Haven, a friend of my husband’s texted him to tell him they’d seen me on Tinder. Obviously, they were a little concerned that I was hunting for a new husband. 😉 What actually had happened is that someone had stolen my profile photo and name and was apparently looking to […]

Let me just tell you about those Ranger Mamas. They are SO strong. Their husbands are gone often on deployments and extended training events and yet they hold everything together. They learn quickly how to handle everything, and they do it over and over. There is no “you take this shift, I’ll take the next […]

Want to know one of my favorite things about being a photographer? Well, aside from the many different people I meet, it’s watching those people go through life’s changes and transitions and being there to document it all. I first met Mary when her son’s dad and my husband were in the same unit in […]

ALWAYS real. ON THE DAILY.
