The Brainard Family

We LOVE THE BRAINARDS! Ben leads worship at our church, and we have grown to love and appreciate his family so much! We went out to Cherokee Park to take these photos of them not too long ago, and I wanted to share some of my faves! We used an off-camera flash diffused with a softball for most of these. Let me know what you think!

The Sherer Family

We had such a fun time hanging out with Ethan, Jennifer, and Jaden on the grounds of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary for their summer family session! Lindsay provided some beautiful reflected light with my Westcott Omega Reflector (as always — great job, babe!), and despite the crazy humidity outside that day, I think the three of them did amazing. Let us know what you think about their portraits in the comments! 🙂

The Gardner Family

I’m a little late on blogging this family’s beautiful portrait session, but I just couldn’t wait any longer! Shooting, editing, and babysitting my little one have consumed quite a bit of time (which is A-OK, btw!), but I’ve finally found some time to sit down, write a little bit about people that Lindsay and I have grown to love, and share their photos with you.

So, without further ado, I bring you Cody, Ashley, and little Grayson! Feel free to leave some comments! 🙂

Model Tests

I recently had three young models test with me to see which one I wanted to use for a flower girl dress story that I’m going to shoot for a boutique in Los Angeles later this year. All of them did awesome, and I wanted to show you some of my favorites from their sessions! Let me know what you think! 🙂 Also, a special shout-out to Ella, Isabelle, and Georgia and their mothers for being so awesome!
