The Lloyds | Family

This crew. I was so impressed. Eric and Liz have six kiddos, SIX. On top of that, they own one of my favorite coffee shops around: The Sure House Coffee Roasting Co. It’s amazing for so many reasons: locally roasted, fair trade, organic…you get the idea. And y’all, their family is amazing. They are kind and patient and truly some of the best behaved kids…I think some of my favorite observations of this sweet family were two things: 1. they are all different, completely their own individual selves and 2. they are free to express their emotions but they don’t overpower each other. I wish you could have witnessed it. You’ll notice in these images that there is fun and chaos and emotion and love and even sadness. Honestly, it moves me more than you may know. With that in mind, not all the photos will be “happy, smiling at the camera” bits….and I LOVE that. It’s REAL. Eric & Liz, y’all are doing something right. Cheers.

Alexandria | Senior

I don’t frequently do urban sessions…If I’m being honest, it’s a smidge out of my comfort zone. BUT Downtown Canton delivered. And Alexandria was the PERFECT person to photograph here. She is just plain cool, not to mention drop-dead-GORGEOUS. And can we please talk about her hair?? Serious hair envy happening here…wowzers. Aaaanyway, I wish more high school seniors would have their photos done by local photographers because the whole studio/senior portraits thing, in my opinion, is so impersonal. Be you and be authentic…that’s what makes images rock. Just sayin’. ;)

Chad & Gwen | Elopement

This Autumn elopement was a dream. To be a part of something so intimate is such an honor. With only a handful in attendance, you could feel the importance of every moment. No frills, just love and more love. Chad and Gwen are the sweetest couple, ever. They didn’t care it was drizzling and cold, and they weren’t worried about getting muddy. They were just so dang happy to be getting married!
