A Session for Hazel {Utah Child and Family Photographer}

I have rewritten this post three times. It’s very hard to find the right words when talking about childhood cancer. So I’ve decided I’m not going to. It’s enough for you to know that my childhood friend’s daughter Hazel has fought and is winning, winning, winning! But at the time of this session that I begged my friend to let me do, she was still deep in the trenches of her battle. I bet you could never guess looking at this session which one she might be. I have never seen so much love, friendship, joy, and happiness from anyone as I did from Hazel on this night. Hazel smiled, laughed, danced and twirled. She giggled with her sisters and snuggled with her family. She held my hand over and over again, walking and talking with me like old friends, even though she hadn’t ever met me before. She even invited me to lunch when I came back to Utah to visit at our shared favorite restaurant (and we did have lunch there a couple of months later!!). I was blown away.

So here’s to all the fighters out there. Here’s what hope and joy look like. Love you Hazel. Thank you for teaching me so much, and for loving a new friend.


Newborn Brixton {Memphis Newborn Photographer}

I am so excited to be in my new Germantown photography studio, where I can meet sweet little babies like Brixton! Each EDP newborn session includes use of an amazing collection of clothes made just for newborns from the ever-so-talented The Treetop Shoppe. Be sure to check them out and see what you might want to use as part of your next session! They are adding more baby clothes for sitters and toddlers every day, and plan to expand beyond that, so if you are questioning what to have your little wear at their session, be sure to email me first. I may have just the thing (or two or three!)

So here’s a recap of the fun we had when Brixton came in for his session (this is very overdue, but I’m glad to add it now!). . .

A look at the Lifestyle Session {Oxford, MS Newborn Photographer}

Every once in a while I get the treat of visiting a family in Oxford, MS for a little newborn lifestyle session. I LOVE documenting families right where they bring their little ones home! It’s something I wish I had done when my babies were new. Even though we were bringing them home to a tiny 600 square foot college apartment, I really wish I had found a photographer to come and document such a major milestone in our life. That tiny apartment is where my second son’s story began, and I wish I could show him pictures of just how happy we were there, with his older brother excited to hold him on our hand-me-down little couch. Because that little tiny apartment may have been lacking in size and style, it was FULL of LOVE.

All of that said, I oftentimes visit homes not only full of love but of some serious style! This Oxford beauty was no exception, and I loved the soft light that poured in on the love that already filled the home. Sigh. Here’s some highlights from our morning together.


Miss Etta’s Newborn Session {Memphis Newborn Photographer}

It was such a treat to meet this beautiful girl for her newborn session here in Collierville! And I loved seeing her older sis again from their maternity session at Shelby Farms. Aren’t they both stunning? I just love that I have the opportunity to photograph such beautiful children and help document such an important time in my client’s lives! There is nothing quite like a newborn in your arms!
