ENGAGED | CRIPPEN | ABILENE TX


RUSSELL + LAUREN

What a beautiful fall engagement session with Russell and Lauren! These two are getting married in Washington, where they are both from. So, we headed out to the Abilene State Park to try and capture as much fall color as we could!! It was so sweet to capture this season of life for them!

NEW LIFE | CARTER JEAN


CARTER JEAN HESS

Have you ever wondered what it's like to have a photographer in the room while you give birth?! The majority of the time you don't even know I'm there. I love just being a fly on the wall and being able to capture the most raw, vulnerable moment in someone's life. Words cannot even describe what it's like to be able to tell the story of a new life. I hope these emotional photos give you just a small glimpse into birthing a child, remember the birth of your child, or bring hope that one day you too will birth a new life into this world!! 

I'm so thankful I got to be apart of Carter entering this world. Such a sweet moment + we will always have a special bond. Welcome Carter Jean, you have the most peaceful little heart + one loving family that already adores you! 

BIRTH . HOSPITAL . NEWBORN




FAMILY | JOHNS + PHILLIPS


The past few weeks have been full of lots of family mini-sessions! I love that I get to meet so many new people through photography. It's been the sweetest gift. This season has been full of new clients & new faces - I couldn't be more excited about that! Chellsee + Josh are getting married next October & I just cannot wait to document this one! Little Liam will melt your heart in these photos, I cannot get over how precious he was! What a sweet family!

FAMILY | YOUNG


My neighbors are legit! When Tara messaged me about doing some family photos, she had the idea to do them in our neighborhood. It was the perfect cold fall day, the only one we've had this season! But, I'm pretty sure we nailed it. Plus little Wyatt is the cutest little boy around & I think he could make it as a model with that big ol' smile. Such a sweet family & I'm thankful to live so close to them!
