This session.... WOW. As we crept up to the top of Pilot Mountain I could barely see in front of me. Once we got out of the car I could tell it wouldn't be long before the rain came. I told Hannah and Justin we had made it that far, we might as well have some fun. I was secretly excited because it's not everyday you get to shoot a dreamy engagement session with such mood. I knew this could go one or two ways... Either you hate it because you're soaking wet or you completely live in the moment and embrace it for all that it is.

This family. I mean seriously... could they be any cuter? I have been shooting the Smith crew from many years and I always look forward to their session.

Have the rest of the family dress in colors found in your outfit. Hope this little trick helps you on your future session!
I love shooting Newborn sessions... I also love shooting Lifestyle sessions... put them together and it's pure magic! Ahhhh I could look at these images all day. I love those photos that document raw moments full of life. Welcome to the world baby Grant!
This session almost didn't happen! A big storm was rolling in just as we were meeting to shoot Carson's session. She was all dressed and had her hair curled... I said "let's shoot until we get rained out." As you can see in the first images we had a few rain drops falling but it never got bad enough to stop. So we carried on and had so much fun playing dress up and adventuring around town. Thank you Carson for trusting me even through the unpredictable weather. You are stunning!
Mary Beth and Brad are getting married this coming September. Back in May we picked a lovely afternoon to shoot their engagement session. They brought along the pups and we had the best time! I am pretty sure the puppies did too... they were showered with lots of treats!! Here are just a few images from their session. Enjoy!
