This was such a fun shoot for me! The beautiful maternity model is one of my best friend’s sisters! It’s always a joy to photograph the families of people I love! Shoutout to Verbena Floral Design for the stunning flower crown, and to Mandalin Collective for the awesome job on the makeup. Samantha, you were a gorgeous model & I had so much fun photographing you!
Here are a few words from Samantha herself:
“Let’s start off by saying that I’m not one to insists on something being special or memorialized in print but I am so glad that my sister offered to have maternity photos done on my visit from Cali. I was like sure! Why not?
The day came when the photographer Eva Cranford was to come over for the shoot. We had gotten a crown by Verbena Floral Design for me to wear for the shoot and it was stunning. Next the make up artist: Mandalin Collective came to do my make up which came out flawless. I felt like a beauty queen.
Finally, it was time for photos. Eva made everything so comfortable and gave direction very well. Her personality is effortlessly radiant you can’t help but love her. It was so much fun seeing how much she loves what she does and her feed back is amazing. She even showed me some shots as she took them. She really has a great eye for lighting and capturing the moment. The pictures turned out brilliantly!
This is my second pregnancy 11 years apart. I wasn’t able to enjoy my first pregnancy. However, I’m so glad I am able to this time and did this shoot. It made me so excited to get to finally meet my little girl and show her pictures of when she was in mommy’s belly. Sometimes being pregnant you feel like your giant and ugly but with these photos they made me truly feel like mother nature in all of her beauty! I couldn’t be happier to have this experience. Thank you Eva for everything!”

Katy was a dream to photograph at Berry Springs in Georgetown, TX. We got lucky, that in June it wasn’t blisteringly hot…and we knocked out her session in the dappled sunshine & shade. She knew how to channel both beauty & fun in the same time block. It made my photographer heart happy!

Way overdue in posting these! I absolutely loved shooting this sweet little mini-session for the Sanders family this spring. Royce & Tiffany and their gaggle of girls were an absolute blast to photograph, and we had a gorgeous evening to do it, too!
And what’s extra fun for me, is that Tiffany is my personal trainer, and now close friend! It’s been so fun to get to know her and her family this year. She is an absolute gem of a human and exceptionally skilled trainer. I’m thankful that fitness brought her into my life!
Oh, friends. This is another sweet one. Kalah and I have been friends for FOUR YEARS now! The bulk of my twenties…it’s crazy how much life we have shared together, even though we’ve never lived in the same city! We were on the same World Race squad, have visited each other too many times to count in each other’s respective cities, walked with each other through life’s hilltops & valleys. From the day we met, she has talked about having me take her wedding photos one day. And here we are! Engagement photo time! It was an amazing weekend in Nashville & I’m insanely happy for she & Jeremy and all that God has in store for their future.
