Matt and Melissa are Expecting!


And it's a boy! Little Ayden is expected to arrive in the next few months and will make the Dennetts a family of four. I photographed Matt and Melissa's wedding in November of 2012 and shortly after Melissa contacted me and asked if I would take their maternity pictures as soon as they were expecting. Shortly after they found out this little guy was on the way we started planning this day. I love capturing the joy and excitement that the upcoming arrival of a new family member brings! Can't wait to meet this baby boy very soon.


Melissa has made some great signs to use in past photo shoots and I love this new one she made specifically for this session! And soon-to-be big sister Alayna was a great little model and boy did she make me laugh!


Just love these.


Little miss was just about done at this point and this last shot I took of her is just too much:)


Will leave you with this cute shot, can't wait to see all FOUR family members at the next shoot!

Meet Baby Charlotte


The Lindeens are now a family of four! Baby Charlotte made her appearance a few weeks ago and I got to meet her and take her pictures shortly after she arrived. I love newborn shoots and capturing the sweet moments between the baby and her loving family. This lucky girl has one caring big brother Cooper and two wonderful parents. She is a little beauty as you will see!

Month Ten - Baby's First Trip


This month we got to take our little guy on his first road trip to Pine Valley, CA. My parents live there at a camp and it is one of Ivy's very favorite places in the world:) My older sister Sonnie was in San Diego a few days before we arrived and was planning on spending a few more days at the camp before heading back home to Nashville. She hadn't met baby boy yet so we were pretty excited to arrive! My two younger sisters, Camie and Morrie, were brave enough to join me and the kiddos in the car and let me tell you I am so thankful for them! It actually ended up being a pretty smooth ride, the kids were awesome (even though they didn't sleep...:) It was a quick trip but so great! Getting back together is always a fulfilling time. In just two short months we will be back for one of my brother's wedding (I have 8 siblings by the way, if you didn't know), and this trip EVERYONE in my family will be together! These moments are so special and I am grateful that our little guy is able to join us.

Ivy sure enjoys running around the camp with Peeka the dog.


It was pretty chilly and rainy the first few days of our trip so we spent a good amount of time inside. It's amazing how entertaining a baby is, we had fun watching him and just hanging out.


Bubba took a liking to his uncle Haddon's cell phone.


I thought this picture was kinda cute, Peeka and Bubba staring each other down.


And the very best things about visiting the camp is going on golf cart rides, Ivy's favorite!


Little guy got to experience his first ride, Ivy gave him a kiss before they left.


Off they go!


Got a little chilly so Bubba got bundled up and held tight by his aunt Jaycie.


A look of pure happiness! It was a great trip and we can't wait for the next one!

Meet Baby Elijah


This sweet baby boy was just one week old when I took his newborn pictures. His big brother PJ seems to like his new little pal quite a bit, I am sure they will grow up being the best of buds! Elijah is a wonderful addition to the Roe family and it was wonderful getting to see all four of them.


Pj is one active little guy and after about 5 minutes of picture taking all he wanted to do was run and explore! He was a trooper and did manage to give us a few more smiles:)


Such beautiful boys, congrats Roe family!
