Birth Story - Jemima Jean

Hey everyone! I'm finally ready to share Jemima's birth story photos!

Daniel called me on Wednesday at 8 to tell me that things were picking up. I immediately left for their home in Jackson. The whole drive was an inward dilemma between wanting to arrive as soon as possible and also knowing that if I get pulled over for speeding I would actually waste more time with the police than I would by just driving slower. 

I got to the house around 8:30 and heard crying...

So I guess I should tell you: these are not actually BIRTH story photos. These are "immediately following the birth" story photos. Yep, I missed the birth by about three minutes. Apparently I should have taken the risk with speeding. This will forevermore be my excuse for breaking the law.

Emily delivered this baby like a boss. I can't tell you this first hand since I wasn't actually there, but apparently the entire process took about fifteen minutes. Go Emily. 

This is Jemima Jean!

"The Lord blessed the latter part of Job’s life more than the former part. He had seven sons and three daughters. The first daughter he named Jemima... nowhere in all the land were there found women as beautiful as the daughters of Job"

Emily's parents missed the birth by about ten minutes, but here they are meeting granddaughter number 3.

Big sister Providence was in bed, so I wasn't there when she met Jemima. Here's big sister Ruthie meeting Jemima! 

Baby got cleaned up while Momma got cleaned up. Jemima wasn't happy about being away from Mom.

Little bitty baby feet.

Big sister Ruthie decided to make a birthday card for Jemima!

This photo is completely unstaged. I'm pretty sure this is the "so... we have THREE DAUGHTERS" face.

Little bitty baby hands.



Anzel - Nine Month Photos

Hey everyone! It's been a while! Here's a little preview of the time I spent with Anzel this afternoon! Stay tuned to the blog, there's a ton coming up soon! This month has so much happening. This week I'm shooting a birth story (woohoo!), next weekend Erin and Alex's wedding, the next weekend Charity and Forrest's wedding, and the next weekend Kassi and Ian's wedding. It's going to be a great month!


Kassi and Ian

You might recognize these two from a previous blog post... this was our second engagement photo session! Kassi and Ian are so fun to work with because they'll do anything you tell them to even if it's probably a bad idea. They're adventurers, which makes shooting them super interesting. I've always wanted to do a water session and they were interested in having some water photos, so it worked out for both of us! All three of us braved the murky waters of Chickasaw State Park to get these cool photos. We were super gross when we finished, but I think it was worth it. If nothing else, we had a ton of fun. These two are getting married next month, so watch out for their wedding photos coming soon!



Katie & Jason's Wedding

I'm so excited to post some photos from Katie and Jason's gorgeous wedding. It was such a pleasure working with them and their families. Let me know what you think and enjoy! 


Katie Bridal Portraits

Last weekend I was priviledged to be able to shoot Katie and Jason's beautiful wedding in Tullahoma, TN. There are a ton of photos from this wedding, but for now I just have a little sneak peek for you. I loved Katie's bridal portraits, so I thought they deserved their own post! More to come from this amazing vintage wedding soon!
