Sarah is one of my dearest friends. I taught across the hall from her and we stuck like glue. She is one of those friends that I can call and we pick up where we left off. As if no time has passed. She cares deeply for me and my family and it was a privilege to be a part of her growing family! She is a stunner! You just wait!
I was so excited to meet up with Sarah and James at one of my favorite photo locations in the Upstate for a stunning – and terribly sweet – maternity session. At the time, Sarah is about 3 months away from giving birth, she was a trooper while we were roaming around finding the best spots to shoot! Her skin looked amazing, her hair was perfection, and her dress was on point!
Sarah said this about her pregnancy journey thus far : "I have loved running and walking throughout the pregnancy. I have also love eating heavy foods! No cravings or aversions, just wanting lots of food and food often." Sarah has always been gorgeous there's just a mama kind of beautiful that she is wearing around now! :)
Not to mention, James was a total (loving and supportive) rock star the entire time. There was a moment when he took the time to arrange Mary Kathryn's onesie perfectly for the photo and I nearly fainted from the tenderness of it all! What an amazing girl daddy he is going to be! Sarah said this about James, "James hasn't stopped since we found out we were expecting!! He cooks, cleans, dishes, laundry - you name it!! He worries about the baby and helps do everything around the house. He reads stories and chats with the baby every night, too. He's the best!" Isn't that the sweetest thing!?
They’re going to be an amazing Mama and Daddy duo, and their little bundle of joy is so lucky to be brought into the world with them. Thanks again for allowing me to capture such a tender time in your lives!
I cannot wait to see that precious face around Valentine's Day! Oh, what a great present she will be!
I love you both!

One of my favorite memories was sitting down with my grandma at the kitchen table with her photo albums in her lap.
I remember the sweet smile that she would have when she talked about my grandpa.
How he walked miles out of the way just to carry her books home from school. How he knew the second he saw her that she was the "one". How she traveled across the country to see him off for war. How she waited for him. How their love for each other turned into a giant family.
She was a gorgeous and spunky thing, my grandma. But she had the sweetest spirit. She knew the art of storytelling.
Not just any story.
Our story. Her story. My story.
She would flip through the flimsy black pages, run her fingers over the black and white square images, and go back in time.
I got to go on that journey with her. And because she had physical images, I felt like I was there.
She took the time to share with me what it meant to be a strong, loving wife. She showed me the kind of man my grandpa was back then. And the kind of man I should look for.
And those stories still float in my mind. On days when I don't feel like being that kind of wife. On days when my selfishness takes over. I hear her. I see her precious wrinkly and arthritic fingers touching each picture.
She and my grandpa are why I do what I do. They left a legacy. One that I hope to share with each couple we meet, with each family we encounter.
I have no idea who took those images. Who their photographer was in the living room of their pastor's house on their wedding day. I would like to think that they wanted it that way.
I know I do.
At the end of your 60+ year marriage, I hope that your grandchildren look at your wedding album and think, Grandma and Grandpa had something special. Something that lasted. They would hug each other in the kitchen just like that. Grandpa always held Grandma's hand that way.
Not, "my, that was one great photographer. "
I want to produce something that lasts that helps you tell your grandchildren stories like my grandma would tell me.
I want to encourage your marriage along the way. So that it too, stands the tests of time.
My Mamaw and Papaw as I call them, and Mama and Daddy as my mama calls them are why we do photography this way. Why we do business the way we do.
They are our why.
We exist to help build strong marriages through heirloom memories so that we can renew the joy of marriage on days when our couples need it the most.
So that their grandchildren can hold the day that their family started.
So that couples can look on their walls and see the life they have begun.
So that children can watch true love unfold and live on the walls of their homes.
We hope that one day, that frame on your mantle, the canvas on your wall, the album on your coffee table could refresh the covenant that you made with each other and be the greatest story ever told in the life of your family.
Love and Laughter,
This at home newborn session was not like any other. It was incredibly special.
I love this little boy's mama.
Like she is my sister, but better. Without the arguing. :)
Tanya has been my heart friend for what seems like forever. She gets me. I get her.
We dream together. Grieve together. Get big goofy grins together. Intercede on the others behalf. It's a friendship I do not take for granted.
Hours pass too quickly when we are together, yet we can pick up right where we left off.
She is the friend that turns my eyes right back to the Father when I turn the other direction. When I am hurt. Confused. Angry.
She gives me a space to share my dreams no matter how ridiculous. And can discern exactly what to pray.
Best friends don't always make the best couple friends. But they do.
Her husband Levi and my husband are peas in a pod. They work in the same field and can talk shop like the best of them.
They are couple friends that my husband and I are proud to have. Not just friends. Family.
When I found out that Tanya was pregnant, I got this jittery excitement inside. I couldn't wait to watch her become a mama and spoil my "nephew" rotten! I fully prepare to spend a lot of time even from a long distance, getting into "auntie" trouble with Judah!
I already love holding him and staring at his precious face. Just as I would if he were my own. Because he's more than my best friend's baby. He's family too.
Levi and Tanya,
We are so incredibly excited and honored to be able to walk through life with you. We are especially grateful to be able to love on your precious little one for at least the next 20 years! :) Thank you for granting me the opportunity to capture this precious slice of life. I am always available for Judah cuddles and talks on the couch. I am excited to see how God uses your already willing hearts to do amazing things for Him through this spectacular little boy!

The Jennings family and I go way back! Well, Kathryn and I go way back to high school and I have jokingly become the “Jennings Family Photographer”. As hilarious as that is, I cherish it. They have allowed me to capture super important times in their lives. This was not any different. I remember feeling so giddy when I received a message from Kathryn explaining that she was pregnant and that I would need to make a trip to do newborn pictures in June. Wink. Wink. I obliged and was thrilled when I found out that Allie had been born.
Cue the adorable baby music. If that is even a thing.
Welcome to this big world Allie Mae Jennings. I look forward to watching you grow on the other side of my lens for a long time!
Love and Laughter,
