Each member of the family, from the elders to the youngest, brought their unique energy and joy, creating a vibrant tapestry of love and connection.

Summer is the season of warmth, vibrant colors, and new beginnings. It’s a time when nature is in full bloom, and there’s no better backdrop for capturing the beauty of pregnancy than Beckley Creek Park. Nestled in the heart of Louisville, Kentucky, this park offers a stunning blend of landscapes, making it the perfect location for a summer maternity session. I first met Courtney + Michael here on a Sunday evening and oh my goodness, it was gorgeous! They were so much fun to work with and laughter flowed throughout the session. The wildflowers and golden hour sun were key players in their session, but they really only added to this already beautiful couple. I’m so excited to meet their sweet baby boy in just a couple of short months.

I was so excited when Riley + Nate contacted me about family photos and a pregnancy announcement session. Family photos are a special time anyway, but when also celebrating a new beginning, and taking pictures to share that news to the world – family photos take on a whole new level of excitement. Riley, Nate, and their little girl Sloan could not have been more fun to work with, and oh my goodness their session was so sweet!
