This dude was awesome and so much fun! We had a blast exploring the location, hiding in the tall grass, using sticks as swords ( as boys do!) and chatting about Minecraft. His mom warned me beforehand that having his photo taken was not on his list of favorite things to do. Ha! I hope I made it a little less painful than he was expecting.;)I can’t wait until next time! xo

P.S. I realize this is my first blog post since November *hanging my head in shame* I am going to try so hard to be better about it this year. Hopefully this is a resolution that actually sticks unlike my healthy eating one. I just had hershey kisses for breakfast. I kid, I kid. There’s always tomorrow, right?!:)

Oh, I have SO much love for these two kiddos (and their parents!). This was my third time photographing twins, Jackson and Mae – and although I have enjoyed every year – this year was hands down my favorite. Three-year-olds are the best!

Thanks again for hanging out (and for a yummy dinner!) guys. I can’t wait until next year!

I recently spent a gorgeous Sunday afternoon with sweet Mia and her adoring (and adorable!) family and friends celebrating her 1st Birthday. These types of sessions are so much fun — beautiful decorations, super cute families and CAKE! Let’s not forget the cake. Happy 1st Birthday, Mia. I wish you many more just as happy as this one! xo

This shoot was originally scheduled to take place in August – the weather had been a bit strange but we decided to give it a go. I drove to their home near Athens, GA and about 15 minutes later, the sky opened up and it began to pour! I packed everything up and we agreed to try again a couple of weeks later, but it rained again! So we finally were able to reconnect (with gorgeous weather) at the beginning of October!

These three kids made all of the reschedules worth it though. They were seriously the sweetest!! When I arrived the two oldest opened the door almost ready to burst with excitement  and were ready to pose (and play!). After we finished the shoot, they both so sweetly asked, “now can we play with you?” – I just couldn’t resist. I hung out for a bit longer and played hide-n-seek and chutes-and-ladders. It was such a great afternoon! I can’t wait until next time. xo

This amazingly adorable crew belongs to my high school friend, Joni.  We met up at their house a few weeks ago for a little photo shoot. As soon as little Vivi (her oldest) opened the front door, we were the best of friends. She is such a smart, sweet and super funny little girl. I couldn’t believe some of the things she came up with. We hit it off so well that Joni told me that a few days later Vivi said ” I miss Jen. When can she come play again?” Anytime, sweet girl. Anytime!

Little Brigie (although just as sweet and adorable!) wasn’t as big of a fan of the photo taking – we all know how busy and uninterested toddlers can be.;) We managed to sneak in a few super adorable shots with her though.

I was beyond excited that we were able to capture such a cute family shot. These guys, every one of them, are seriously sweet and amazing  – such a loving and fun family.

Joni is also an incredible designer and blogger ( shared her thoughts about our session here. I’ll admit, her words totally made me tear up. It is such an incredible honor to be able to do what I love and bring others happiness and joy through it. Yep, definitely awesome.

Can’t wait until next time, Lay family!! xo
