Professional Family Home Video – A collection of films with the K Family

at-home session

It’s been a hot minute since I blogged anything, particularly a professional family home video.  I will take this opportunity to totally blame COVID for my utter lack of posts around here. Because I was only taking one client per week, it seemed like I never had the breaks in my schedule I usually do […]

Best time of day for family photos | why mornings are my favorite

family photography sessions

What is the best time of day for family photos? I definitely don’t suggest mid-morning sessions to clients because I like waking up early.  Until a few years ago I was a night owl and my most productive hours were between 8 pm and 2 am.  It was also a miracle if I got out […]

at-home session

Don’t you wish you had more photos with your grandparents? I can’t tell you how absolutely GIDDY I get when my clients schedule a session to include a visit from the grandparents.

Lifestyle Newborn Photographer.  Three babies y’all.  THREE.  I met mom and dad when Ev was only a few days old and I have (or will have) photographed each of their children three times in their first year of life.  Both Ev and Tessa’s Yearbook Films have been amazing, but it is totally my goal to […]
