Micaela and Matt Engaged! {Lexington Kentucky Wedding Photographer

Micaela and I have been friends for a few years, we met while dancing with the Lexington Irish Dancers! So when Micaela told me she was getting married, we were all over it! It was such a pleasure getting to know Matt and spend time with the happy couple. We are excited to be shooting their wedding next spring in Chicago!

Model: Alyssa Alexander {Lexington Kentucky Model Photographer}

This is one from last spring, when ever I want to try another type of photography, I love giving Alyssa a call. She is so professional and SO talented! She is a great role model for positive body image! Check out her Instagram @alyssaalexander_88

For this shoot I wanted to try something airy, romantic, and a little whimsical.

Howard Family Fall 2015 {Lexington Area Family Photographer}

What can I say about this charming family? Kristina and I went to high school together (we wont talk about how long ago that was) We reconnected over Facebook and since have done three shoots together! I love working with her and Kevin and their adorable son!!  Take a peak at the awesomeness we were able to capture!

Sometimes airplanes disrupt our sessions ;)

Nick & Brittany Pregnancy Announcement {Lexington, Kentucky Maternity Photographer}

So excited to share this session that was taken last December! I had the privilege of shooting their engagement session last year. Brittany was my sons Gymboree teacher and honestly the sweetest person ever! The hardest part of this session was holding off on posting until they had told all of their family and friends!! I was so excited for them!!

Engagement: Jessica and Ryan {Central Kentucky Wedding Photographer}

Jessica was the first model I ever photographed. She was absolutely amazing and the best intro in to the model/photographer relationship ever!
So when she sent me a text asking me to shoot her wedding in August what else could I say but of course!  She and her fianc√© Ryan are stunning and such genuinely sweet people. I am so stoked to shoot their wedding in August! From the details she told me already it is going to be A-Mazing!!!  Here are a few pics from their engagement session that we shot in Harrodsburg at Lake Harrington.  

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Urban Ballerina Series {Lexington Area Photographer}

So, as you may know I was a dancer in a former life. It was a passion of mine from age 2 and really still is. I was competitive mostly in Tap until I was around 16 years old. Anyway ever since I got into photography I have wanted to do an Urban Ballerina series. Even tried to do one as a final project in college. (Models were hard to find in Lexington in 2003!) Well last Monday I finally had the opportunity with the beautiful Molly. Molly is a classically trained Russian ballet dancer from Louisville.  Images were taken in Downtown Lexington and on the University of Kentucky campus.

 
 
 
 
 
 

Lemonade Stand Minis!!

We brought back a favorite from a few years ago! I love the lemonade stand, it's a spring/summer classic! We were back at Shillito Park in Lexington, always a great place to shoot.
The kiddos and the families were so much fun to work with.

For the First time I even got my little boy in on the action! He loved it!

Here are a few other images of our families that we shot that day!  Thank you so much for making it an amazing day!!

 
 
 
 
 
 

Mentoring an Engagement Session! {Lexington Area Engagement Photographer}

I think one of my new most favorite things is mentoring! I'm going to get a few more sessions under my belt but look for mentoring to be available in the coming months!

In February I was fortunate to be able to help a good friend shoot an engagement session in the show at Shakertown!

I truly loved being able to share what I have learned over the years and to watch the other photographer try new things and be really happy with her images!
Below are a few of the images I took while helping her out!
