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!

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!!

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.

 
 
 
 
 
 

An Amazing Opportunity! - Dreams and Fairytales at the McGee House

Well, well its about time huh? 

Today I want to tell you all about the absolutely amazing workshop I attended a few weeks ago. I had the privilege of attending the Dreams and Fairytales workshop at the McGee House in Harrodsburg, Kentucky. The workshop was hosted by the A-Mazing Lukas and Suzy VanDyke and Kristen Booth. I feel like I learned so much on the business side as well as behind the camera.

First of all let me tell you about the McGee House! 

McGee House, Harrodsburg, Kentucky

McGee House, Harrodsburg, Kentucky

This gorgeous house was built in the 1800's and is the perfect venue for a small wedding or any type of shoot! The interior is decorated so perfectly and matches the outside to a "T".  To the right of the house is a cabin that was built in the 1700's and was just beautiful.  The land was incredibly lush and green, I secretly wanted to just go a roll in the grass like my sweet dog, fitz.  We were shooting at the "golden hour" around 7:00 pm, and had the most amazing lighting.

Lukas, Suzy and Kristen just blew my stereo types of "L.A. People" out of the water. They were genuinely happy to be there and really wanted to help us as photographers reach the next level and succeed not only in the business but in our lives as well.  

The other photographers in the workshop were just great! I loved getting to talk to them, it was wonderful how we were all in different stages of the business, some just starting out and some who have been in the photo world for years! We enjoyed laughs and hopes and dreams of what we wanted to do in this business.  (I know that sounded cheesy LOL)

Now since I am the most short winded person you will ever meet I will present you with the images from this (in the words of the 9th Doctor) FANTASTIC! Day.

Sweet, Sweet Joey! {Lexington, Ky Child Photographer}

I had the pleasure of photographing Mr. Joey on the occasion of his first birthday! I first met Joey at 3 days old when I took his newborn photos. I have had the pleasure of watching this little baby grow this year! I love this kid, he is always all smiles and just the sweetest little boy! We shot this session in the clients back yard, it was perfect! I love watching these kiddos grow!

We also did a cake smash session! These are by far one of my most favorite things to shoot!!
