David and I love the mountains. We love the calmness of going to a quiet cabin in the mountains with no visible neighbors, a vast night sky with countless stars, and a chance to get away. We have been going up to the Blue Ridge, Georgia area once a year since 2016. This was our fourth trip together (second with James) and we always stay in new cabins in new areas. This time, we ventured to Bryson City, North Carolina. Our cabin was tucked away high up on the top of a mountain. We enjoyed a beautiful view, the fire pit, hot tub, a porch swing and easy day trips to the Smoky Mountain National Park and to Asheville. I didn’t bring my big camera but I snapped a ton of iPhone photos. I wanted to share them on the blog as an opportunity to look back on this sweet trip. Love going on adventures with my boys! I’ll narrate the details of our trip below…
I am so excited to introduce you to my friend, Jayme!! We met at a play date in our moms club last year. Her daughter and my son are less than one month apart! Jayme and I are both former teachers. I taught Kindergarten for five years and Jayme spent her teaching time in 1st grade. She creates helpful and creative products for teachers on her Teachers Pay Teachers site (she has over 120 products!). Since transitioning from being in the classroom to a SAHM, she shares helpful tips on motherhood, home life and classroom ideas on her blog – Teach Talk Inspire. I recently had the opportunity to capture some updated head shots and lifestyle branding images for this sweet mama. James and I had such a great morning with Jayme and her Little Miss. Scroll to the bottom for a few cute photos of the kiddos. If you’re a teacher and/or a toddler mama, I know you’ll love following Jayme! Her instagram stories are my favorite!
You can follow Jayme on her Teach Talk Inspire Blog and on her Teachers Pay Teachers site and on Instagram.
Welcome to the world, baby Noah! Ohhh, this newborn session was such a treat! I photographed Lisa and Brandon’s wedding last May and less than a year later, I was in their new home, photographing their brand new baby boy! I love photographing growing families! I’m so thankful for every opportunity to have my clients in front of my camera again.
Congratulations, Lisa and Brandon. Noah is perfect!!
Meet the Taylor kids! These four teenagers are part of the sweetest family. Their Mom is a wonderful Kindergarten teacher and their Dad is the pastor at Westtown Church. David and I have been attending Westtown for a few years and we love it. God is definitely at work there! Westtown is located near Westchase on Race Track Road. If you ever want to visit, you can sit with us!
Meet the Brandt family! I first met Stephanie (the pretty lady on the left) in 2013 when David and I moved to Tampa. They were co-workers and quick friends. I got to photograph Stephanie and Jake’s engagement session in NYC in 2014! It was pretty epic and forever one of my favorites. We also had the opportunity to travel around Europe with Steph when we were living in Italy and she was in London for work. One of my favorite trips was to Ireland! We got together with Steph and her family after Christmas in Orlando. It was a great session at Lake Eola!
