I took these just on a whim one afternoon when the big kids were acting crazy... little did I know that these would be their last pictures EVER in diapers! They are both potty trained now... still working on night time but most nights there are no accidents which is amazing! So proud of them!!! It’s wonderful that they aren’t in diapers anymore but part of me is so sad that they are so grown up! I will cherish these images forever!!!!
Brooke found this spot!! What a win! A white picket fence, wildflowers and beautiful light! It literally POURED just minutes before their session!! It’s a miracle their shoot even happened! I can’t wait to share more!!! #kjcouples #kjbrides

This little guy may be losing the hair he was born with... 😩😩😩😩but his smile is getting sweeter and sweeter each day! His interest and love for his cousin Harper grows each day too and it’s the BEST! We love these two so much!!!! And because we always get asked this, these two are three months apart!
I promise I’m still alive and I’m still a wedding photographer!!!! 😂 I haven’t posted in a while but it’s for good reason! We’re enjoying our kids, we were gone on a ten day trip, we had ten days of work to catch up on and now we’re prepping for our #kjcouple REUNION!!!! Over 150 of our past clients from the past 11 years are coming to our house to spend a few hours together and we are SO EXCITED!!! But 150+ people?! That’s a WEDDING! We’re basically throwing a wedding next weekend! 😂🙌🏻❤️yay!!!
Their first bath together was in Scotland and there were so many happy squeals coming from the tub that before we knew it, almost all the women on the trip were in the bathroom to watch. I mean who doesn’t love a new baby in a bath tub?! It’s one of my favorite memories from the trip. It’s funny, sometimes I laugh when I look at my travel/life/family pictures because they are perfect to me but they aren’t the curated insta/influencer type photos you commonly see when you’re scrolling. I follow accounts like @thebucketlistfamily and I just love their photos and sometimes think “gosh I need perfect images of my family in amazing places”! But then I realized that I actually prefer the non-perfect, less fine art-y images the most. Pictures of the kids in the bathtub, pictures of a less-than-peaceful Gondola ride, holding baby Graham in a plastic lawn chair in the front yard, all six kids about to go out on an adventure and practically none of them are smiling much less looking at the camera!! I love these pictures. The older I get, the more I’m learning to love what I love!! These pictures right here are what I LOVE. If you wanna see the full blog post, well, it’s on the blog!!!!! Enjoy!!!
Everyone had something they were hoping for on our trip to Scotland. The guys wanted a hike, some wanted good conversations, some wanted to try new food.... this photo was my wish. It’s one thing to experience the joy of your child running around and experiencing a new place so far from home and it’s another to capture it and save it forever. It is always a hard balance for me to not want to try to shoot everything on a trip like this... but nursing an 11 week old will MAKE you slow down and just watch instead of snapping images constantly. I knew I wouldn’t be able to shoot this trip like I have photographed trips in the past but my one wish was to go home with a beautiful family photo ✅and a photo of Evy in the highlands just being a two year old....✅!! I tried all week to get her to smile and take a good picture in epic locations but it was a bit of a battle. Of course this was one of the last photos of the trip and it wasn’t prompted. She had thrown her shoes off in the car and had a fit when we tried to put them back on so we could get out and take a family picture. We decided that wasn’t a battle worth fighting and she went barefoot.... and her bare feet are one of my favorite parts about this photo. 😂🤷🏼♀️🙌🏻I’m slowly working my way through our vacation images and I can’t wait to share them!
Baby Graham turned three months old today! So naturally, I blogged his TWO MONTH blog post! 😂😂😂I’m determined not to skip one!!! Also... we’re thinking he looks like he has my skin... poor guy. But Evy looked fair skinned at this age too so we have no idea which way he’ll go!! We love this sweet boy and I can’t wait to share his three month blog post because he’s smiling so much more these days!!! Ps. How beautiful is this watercolor that his Grammie made him?!
How do you find a dress that perfectly matches your eyes?! @gilliansarahdesign you are beautiful!!! Wow! This Scottish engagement shoot is on the blog!! #kjcouples #kjbrides
