Meet my sweet new friends from Uganda, Brian and Elsa and their new baby girl.
It’s been 1 year since sweet Hazel came home and officially became a Throckmorton. I think her addition to this family is magic, pure magic people. What a good, good gift she is.
I am back sharing yet another great way to shop smarter for the holidays! It’s monday and not Friday (I think). Wait, what day is it…? So maybe sharing a shop that gives back every Friday was a little ambitious for my current stage of life. What can I say? I’m an
Happy Black Friday! I am back (after a week’s hiatus) sharing another one of my favorite shops that give back. Now that Thanksgiving is over I feel like everyone has shopping on the brain so why not shop with a purpose? Noonday Collection This week I am sharing Noonday Collection. This
Happy Friday! I am back sharing yet another one of my favorite shops that gives back. I am so excited to share this week’s feature as they make beautiful printed art intended to get God’s word up on our walls (and written on our hearts). This scripture print shop creates gorgeous
As promised, I am back to share some of my favorite shops that give back! I am so excited to share about this one. I am dying to get my hands on one of these gorgeous skirts! I have been following Francis and Benedict since the beginning and I don’t know how I haven’t bought one of
If you are anything like our family, spending money at Christmas time can get out of control and frustrating quite quickly. We *try* to be good stewards of what God has given us but every year when we make a list and set a budget for gifts we inevitably get overwhelmed and frustrated by the
One of my goals for 2017 is to spend just 15 minutes a day doing something creative. I love photography (and I have some exciting things coming up in that realm for 2017) but I also like to push myself outside of my comfort zone and find inspiration in other kinds of creative endeavors.
I cannot even believe that this girl is a SENIOR. She is truly beautiful inside and out and I have loved getting to know her over the last 9 years. Her family is so very dear to ours. Good luck after graduation pretty girl, keep in touch:)
This years’ RAW sessions went exceptionally well! Each family is so unique and so, so beautiful. Thank you for allowing me to be part of your story in 2016. Also, a special shout out to my assistant Kyra, I couldn’t have done it without you!

Meet Hudson James, the newest member of the Pollock family. He joins his 2 big brothers, Carter & Callen and he.is.awesome. Trust me. This family is so very dear to us (Derek & Matt were groomsmen in our respective weddings). I have loved watching this family grow over the years, close up
Oh man, I cannot get enough of this vibrant foursome. These little ones(Ellis & Olive) are simply out of this world adorable. Don’t believe me? Just scroll through a few faves from our shoot at Allerton Park. Enjoy!
I cannot say enough about what this sweet family means to ours. Ryan is the new youth and outreach pastor at our church and he and his wife Cara have been such a welcome addition to our church family. We are all head over heels for Ivy. I mean, just look at her; how could we not be? We are so
This handsome little guy turned 2 a couple weeks ago and I had the privilege of documenting the momentous occasion. He always brings some of the best serious faces as well as some pretty awesome smiles. Happy birthday sweet Oliver, I hope year 2 is the best.
Congrats to MaryAnn & Tim! I was so thankful to be a part of their amazing celebration. Let me tell you, it was the first Jordanian/Irish wedding I’ve ever attended and it didn’t disappoint ? Prayers to you for a long and happy life together! xo
Oh how I love this family and I know you will too once you see how adorable they are. They moved in down the street last year and our girls were instant buds (and we’re pretty fond of the girls’ parents too). ? I am so looking forward to watching these 3 girls grow into sweet young
Oh how I’ve loved watching this little guy grow over the past year! He makes me work for those smiles but when he finally gives them to me, it’s totally worth it:)
I love it when my wedding clients start having beautiful babies! I got to photograph Kristine and Eddie’s wedding a few years ago and now they have the most adorable little girl, Miss Emily James. Congrats on the new addition guys, she’s pretty perfect. xo-Shannon
