Cat and Jason Spring 2020

Celebrating one of my favorite couples, and pup during one of my favorite times of the year! I LOVE shooting in the spring in Branson, the colors are amazing, and they are everywhere! This session will always be remembered as extra special, because it was the last session I got to do before the world went crazy with COVID-19. I’m so thankful we took these pictures when we did, even though it was before their actual anniversary.

“The first time I saw you my heart whispered “that’s the one” and I never let go”

We lovingly refer to this location as “the yellow bush”…and it’s in the most random spot in town. The rest of the empty lot isn’t very scenic at all, but it’s proof that a photographer sees the world a little differently. Add two perfect subjects, and suddenly one bush is all it takes!

“She felt the most free when she as wrapped tightly in his arms”

Before this session, Cat and I were talking about how when she looks back on every session she and Jason have done as couple the session has held it’s own special memory and celebrated ‘the time in their life that…’. That’s why they celebrate every anniversary with a photo session, to remind them of THAT year, THOSE moments and THOSE memories. I love that!

“I choose you. And I’ll choose you over and over. Without pause, without a doubt, in a heartbeat. I’ll keep choosing you.”
“And together, they built a life they love”

Someone once said…”A good marriage isn’t something you find, it’s something you make. And you have to keep on making it.” Cat and Jason are proof of making that decision every day. Oh, and choosing to keep making each other laugh and keep the dogs fed and happy!

“My fairytale came true with you”

And then…there’s Milo…

All the outtakes with this one!

Charlotte Fresh 48

I first met this sweet family when Big Sister was a few months old and I went to their house to do a lifestyle session with them. Over the years I’ve gotten to capture some of the most magical sessions with them watching Big Sister grow up. I have been waiting to capture the magic of Little Sister’s arrival for the last (never-ending) 9 months, and it was TRULY a magical moment capturing their first meeting as a family of 4!

Love at 1st sight
Daddy and his 3 perfect girls

Watching Big Sister meet her new best friend for the first time brought tears to everyone’e eyes. The sweetest moment ever, and pure love and happiness all around.

Squishy baby cheeks, and ALL that hair!
Their 1st game of peek-a-boo
Best Friends Forever

A rainy day in a hospital room has never been this sweet or perfect. These types of moments are what I love capturing forever! I can’t wait to watch Baby Charlotte grow up surrounded by all the love in this family!
