Emma and Ella <3 my bestie's babes. They are so gorgeous I can't take it. Stop growing girlies. I love you both so much.
Caden's turning four and he loves baseball and the Yankees! I love this little guy and I met him at just a few days old and I can't believe he just turned four!
(side note: this was taken before the Yanks lost to Houston in game 7 of the ALCS... pretty sure all of us Yankee fans had smiles like this up until game six... womp, womp, womp...)
My little sister Kristin and my god daughter Rylee even got in on a few pics too- love them! <3
My buddy Bennett <3 Let me just say if I could bottle an ounce of this child's energy, I could conquer the world! I literally can't believe he is turning two when I feel like it was just a few months ago I did his cake smash! I love watching these kiddos turn another year older! Thanks for the smiles, Benny!
This little pumpkin, Georgia, is turning TWO! She brought her smiles with her to the studio! I love when she comes to see me! <3 I can't believe how big she grew over the year! Too sassy and TWO cute for words!
These boys are so handsome! I remember the last time they came I couldn't stop talking about it! Beautiful family inside and out and that puppy there, Catcher, he was so well behaved... he's welcome anytime! So glad the weather held off and we were able to get beautiful shots of these guys after a rain out!
Ryan and Angela had me laughing the whole shoot! Their wedding will, no doubt, be a great time! Thanks for choosing me guys!
I love it so much when I get to be around these guys! We had an early morning session and the light was perfect! I always leave with a smile after seeing these faces <3
If you have emailed me in the last three years, you've spoken to Tanya! This is Tanya, the Tanya! And as the saying goes in my circle of friends, "Everyone needs a Tanya!". Truly don't know how I survived so many years without her <3
Rich and Lauren are getting married next year and I get to be there to capture it! I had a fun morning with these guys at Burnside Plantation! Can't wait for the wedding :)
Claire makes me so happy!!! She has been coming to see me for years already and every time I love the spunkiness and sweet sass she brings! Can't believe you're almost three big girl!
This is life: You finally plan and coordinate outfits, schedules and a non-rainy day... you pull in only to find one of your two year old twins threw up all over himself, his carseat, the car door and you don't have another set of clothes that coordinates. BUT, you do have a pair of navy play shorts and a gray Star Wars shirt that might be a possibility! You contemplate rescheduling but it would be nearly impossible to get everyone back here again and ready for photos. So you decide that it's a "Star Wars shirt inside out and a roll with the punches kinda afternoon". Your twins want to chase squirrels, pick rocks and hide sticks so you let them roam and grab them in between for a quick photo in the mix! And this is what that looks like. But guess what? It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter if they're not looking at the camera in every single image or if they're crying in some. These moments are precious and priceless. You can never ever get these moments back and great grandma, who's almost 87 and has raised three kids of her own, just smiles and loves every second. She smiles because she knows... this is life and life isn't always perfect... but it's always wonderful! Since this crazy session, great grandma who turns 87 in November, has broken her femur. All they keep thinking is "Thank goodness we went through with that photo shoot!" Photos are priceless guys. These pictures are proof. Don't put it off because tomorrow isn't promised to us. This is what keeps me going. This right here.
Carissa and Russell joined me for a rare Sunday shoot because they had three rain and fog-outs since their initial date with the crazy September weather we had! I'm excited to shoot their wedding this June!!! You guys are awesome, thanks for picking me!
My beautiful best friend, her amazing little family and that little guy there is my god son! I love these people so much!
Trick-or-Treat 2017 was a great success! We fit 78 families in two hours! The line was out the door and it was so exciting to see everyone and the babes all dressed up in their costumes. They're all so stinkin' adorable. I appreciate you all so much.
First let's check out all of the fun behind the scenes...
Now let's take a look at our very littlest Trick-or-Treaters!
Bugs, bugs, and more bugs... goes to show bugs don't have to be scary!
So many animals that we could have a zoo of cuteness!
Prepare yourselves for the next round of cuteness OVERLOAD!
We could feel the Disney magic too that night including Mickey & The Gang and many more!
A few princesses & mermaids too!
May the force be with my little Star Wars friends!
If we needed saving that night, we had lots of the greatest superheroes ready to save the day...
Check out all of the awesome famous characters who came for a visit...
I was so frightened by all of these super scary trick-or-treaters:
Lastly, these were some of the most unique and creative costumes that night!
This was so much fun- hope we can do this again next year!!!
Stick around on the blog and check out lots of other new blogs we've posted recently!

So handsome and so squishy, 6 days new baby Vaughn in the studio~ isn't he dreamy?!?
The light in the backyard at my studio right now is so amazing! I love how it has a fall feel to it. Handsome Grant and his gorgeous mama and daddy! So many amazing images from this gallery, they're going to have a heck of a time picking favorites to print! Just love the lumberjack theme, buffalo plaid, and his "stack of pancakes" CAKE!
Bryana, 10, was at my studio for Santa pictures with her little sissy last year and she saw one of my canvases that was of one of my beautiful brides in the pose of her looking down with the flower crown! Her mama said she loved the photo and has been talking about recreating it since. I felt the pressure to recreate it for her perfectly but I must say, this girl must have a creative brain for her to even recognize it and such confidence to know she wanted a photo like it! Kudos to her parents, they've got the parenting thing on lock. Bryana, you are stunning inside and out! Her smile can light up the room! Her sister, sweet little three-year old Livia, is just the cutest! She was such a good girl and posed perfectly for me each time! Love these girls!
Princess Belle, I mean Aubrey, modeling my newest princess backdrop! Looks like she's saying "TA-DA!!" Another newborn of mine I'm having a hard time believing is turning TWO! I'm sorry for being a broken record, it's just time passes by so quickly it's absurd! Happy Birthday Princess!
My new friends from their family session at the studio. That little Averie is such a sweetie, all it took was a off key rendition of a Moana song by me to get that great smile and her big brother Christian was putting karate moves on me by the end of the session. Awesome session with some beautiful people and golden hour sunlight... I'm happy! :)
