hello from maternity leave!


Hello from maternity leave! 


I'm so excited to introduce you to the newest member of our family :)

Cooper Scott Kelly was born on April 10th, 2014 at 9:56pm, 
weighing 9 pounds 7 ounces, 
and measuring 21 inches long. 
He is the love of our lives!

Life is just beautiful at the moment…

It's a combination of feedings, diaper changes, face kisses, snuggles, and of course…taking a million pics! If you would like to read the story of the day Cooper was born, check out this post. And if you would like to see a few more photos of our little man, check out this one too :)

My beautiful friend, Kimberly, is getting married in 21 days and that will be my first "gig" after baby. I seriously could NOT be more excited to break out all my gear and shoot a gazillion frames of her beautiful wedding. It has been TOO LONG since I've posted any wedding photos!

Anyway, just wanted to pop in and write a little note :) Also, thank you to my wonderful clients for your patience as I return emails a little slower than usual!

{featured: coastal bride} laura + lee's wedding in maine


I am convinced I'll look back at 2013 as the year I travelled all over shooting beautiful weddings for amazing couples. 

This lovely feature on Coastal Bride forced me to look over these photos almost a year after they were taken, and suddenly I'm reminded of how much I love what I get to do! I hope to be back to shooting destination weddings next year (maybe I'll be packing my family with me…!) because there's really nothing like it. 

So if any of you ladies are recently engaged and considering skipping town to say "I do," let me be the wind beneath your wings, shouting DO IT, SISTER! And bring me with you!

a little peek into the baby's room…!


As most of you will already know, I'm super pregnant and waiting on the baby to come any day now! I've been able to keep on top of all wedding inquiries up to this point, but once those contractions come -- I might be out of touch!

This is my little goodbye-to-the-world blog post until further notice :) Next time I check in, I'll be a mommy!

For now, here's a little peek into the baby's room...
