Unfortunately, I was looking forward to several weddings this year that I had to pass on because of my pregnancy. Hailey and Michael are getting married at Holy Ghost Church next month, and I was very excited about getting to work with them. Her father was one of my favorite teachers in high school, and I really enjoyed photographing her sister Hannah's wedding in 2005. I also did Hailey's senior photos, and I know that she will be a gorgeous bride. I'm confident that my friends Matt and Erin Browne will do a fabulous job in my place though, and at least I did get to photograph their engagement session at the Knoxville Botanical Gardens.

They are such a super sweet couple, and I hope that they have a beautiful wedding and a very happy marriage!

Meet Caleb, Alayna, and Charlie! I'm just processing the photographs from their newborn session last week and wanted to share this one on the triplets. Photographing three babies at the same time is as challenging as you would expect, but they were just oh so very cute.

Edited to add a couple more favorites. These three were actually really good at sleeping for me, but they were very particular about HOW they wanted to sleep. They resisted being on their stomachs or sides and didn't want anyone moving their heads or arms around. Apparently they were trained in the NICU to only sleep on their backs, and they liked having their arms up over their faces (maybe to block the light?). I couldn't have captured the photos that I did without the help and patience of their parents and older sister. These are three very loved babies!

Baby Josie is just a bundle of sweetness! Weighing in at almost 8.5lb, she was born with lots of adorable little baby chub and lots of hair! Here's a quick peek at a couple of my favorite photos from her newborn photography session this week.

On two separate occasions, I photographed her smiling when her Mom gave her a kiss. It's as if she could feel the love, and it just made her happy.

I just wanted to do a quick blog post to share a couple of photos from my twin session with Savannah and Hunter yesterday. They were just 5lb 11oz and 5lb 5oz when born and are still itty bitty a week later. Aren't they adorable?!

Thanks to Marcus for helping me finish sanding and painting the antique bunk bed.

I know that not everyone is a fan of the umbilical cord stump, but it is part of this brand-spanking-new stage of life and will be gone so very soon. I actually don't get very many photos showing it, but I thought this one was cute and shows a bit about their personalities. Hunter was so sweet, quiet, and relaxed the whole day while Savannah was a little more independent.

For Mother's Day this year, I wanted to get some new photos of Hayden. He wore his Easter outfit and played around in our backyard. Then we took him to the park for a ride on the swings. He LOVES the swings!

I think he may look a little bit like his mommy. Here's a photograph of me when I was about one.
