The High Family; Lexington, KY Family Photography



When Stacey contacted me about family photos she said it may be a big challenge and didn’t know if it was possible. She has two wonderful special needs teenage sons and wanted them both to be looking at the camera for photos- which RARELY happens. I love challenges:) I also know that with enough will power, patience, and creativity anything is possible. So on Halloween last year, we utilized the warm Saturday afternoon for some fun family photos at Shaker Village. Everyone was in such good spirits and I think we were all pleased with the outcome:)

Engaged: Sarah and Jesse; Louisville, KY Wedding Photgrapher

Sarah and Jesse 134BW

I couldn’t have been more excited to photograph this couple and their daughter. Sarah has been in front of my lens before. She was a bridesmaid for her sister’s wedding I photographed three years ago. I’m so excited to see her family again for their May wedding!

Wedding: Holly & Chase; Danville, Ky, Lexington, KY Wedding Photographer


You couldn’t have asked for a better early November day. Mild temperature¬†with a cool breeze and a little overcast. Holy and Chase were married at a small country church outside Danville. They opted for a first look before the wedding because the daylight would be swallowed by the recent time change. A newly harvested cornfield and a distant tobacco barn was the quaint backdrop for all their images. The two were so much in love, I have to do much directing at all! The reception was held on the opposite side of town at The Showroom- a former car dealership turned banquet hall. I’m sure they’ll be celebrating the day for years and years to come!
