Baby Micah; Lexington Kentucky Newborn and Family Photography

Baby Micah 155

I photographed Leah and John as they became man and wife almost three years ago in Versailles. I couldn’t have been more excited to hear she was expecting her and John’s first child- a little boy! I just knew Leah’s family would adore the new little. Her brother and parents both live close and are some of the most wonderful people. They are the kind you meet and after 5 minutes you feel like you’e known them forever. Warm, kind-spirited, Christ-centered folks. I jumped at the chance to photograph the newest family member; the sweetest little man.

Wedding: Morgan and John


Who would have thought there’d be 30-50 mph sustained winds all day in Kentucky in early April. You would have thought we lived in Kansas. The strong winds didn’t hinder the joyful mood of Morgan and John’s long awaited wedding day. I met Morgan at the Capitol Plaza Hotel in Frankfort where she and John were both staying and getting ready on separate floors. She’d found a special note from John written on the bottom of her golden wedding heels. It was a verse from Song of Solomon.

It was windy while we took photos before the ceremony but that was NOTHING compared to the wind we met as they were coming out of the church. I couldn’t help but take photo after photo of the couple trying to navigate the gusts as they came out of the church through a tunnel of their guests.

Once we were at Buffalo Trace the wind was blocked a little by the large buildings. We simply could pass up the opportunity to take some moody photos inside the warehouse. It was a lovely day indeed.

Engaged: Barb and Scoot; Lexington, KY Engagement Photography

Barb and Scott138

You can’t be unhappy and skip at the same time. Neither can you be around Barb and Scott and be unhappy at the same time. With Scott’s infectious laugh and Barb’s constant smiles they are a couple full of joy. I couldn’t have been more delighted to spend a few hours with them. I found early on Barb and I have a unique connection! She is studying to get her Phd for dairy science at UK and I grew up on a dairy farm. How excited was I when she asked if we could do some engagement photos on the UK dairy property? I’ve experienced a lot of things over the years as a photographer but I’d never had a calf nibble on my gear until that evening:) Time well spent! Can’t wait for their wedding in a couple weeks!

Engaged: Kelli & Nes; Lexington, KY Engagement Photographer

Kelli and Nes 081It was only a matter of time before Kelli and Nes would meet. Both were on athletic teams at Asbury University; he played tennis, she played basketball. They began as friends and soon discovered their love for each other. Kelli graduated last year and Nes will be finished with school this year. Can’t wait to photograph your May wedding!

Baby Madison: Kentucky Newborn Photographer



So delicate and new yet resilient and strong. That’s a new little child born to the world! On Valentine’s day I photographed the Monson’s second baby, an adorable little girl! Just shy of two weeks, she was warm, cushy and quite content. There’s few honors bigger than being asked to photograph the children of your wedding clients. It’s such a joy to watch David and Stephanie grow as parents to Conner and now baby Madison:)
