As we countdown the few remaining weeks before Baby McCall makes his or her debut, it's easy to just focus on all things pregnancy and baby. It was important to me to schedule intentional quality time with Matthew before we become a family of three, so we planned a babymoon!

Asheville, NC has been on our destination bucket list ever since we lived in Nashville, but...

​When Molly reached out to me on Instagram this summer, I was absolutely delighted to hear from her again. We first met four years ago when I photographed her family's annual portraits. Soon after, I had the privilege of taking her sister, Katie's, senior portraits. Now, it was Molly's turn. 

​Since I happened to be passing through Austin on my way to our new home in Athens, I was...

Sometimes you just need to get away. In Austin, Texas, a relaxing country retreat isn't far if you simply head south to Hays.

When Samantha suggested checking out Hays City Store for a bite to eat, I knew I wanted to bring my camera along to document her during the Texas golden hour. If you've followed my work over the years, you will recognize Samantha. She is one of my best frie...

​Want to know the best way to celebrate your birthday? Surround yourself with a huge group of people who love you. Even better? Have a group photo shoot after the party in the park to document it. :) 

My dear friend Cassandra gathered her son, Jace's, entire extended family together to document the celebration of his 8th birthday. I was really looking forward to it, especially aft...

I first met Emily in Music City where she and Matthew were classmates at Vanderbilt, both pursuing an MBA. It wasn't until fate brought us all to Seattle after graduation that Emily and I became the close friends we are today. 

Emily is a joy to be around: so smart, sweet and funny. She's also incredibly beautiful.

We had a great time exploring her Queen Anne neighborhood. You just...

Kirkland in the summer is a little slice of heaven on earth. Marina Park’s waterfront is a gathering ground for all kinds of community members. Whether enjoying the live music and beer garden or frolicking on the sand or in the water, there’s a little something for everyone. This is especially true during community events, usually hosted by the Kirkland Downtown Association

When...

I remember the first time I saw my friend Cassandra in “mom mode.” We were on a Google hangout conference call for our small peer mentoring group (founded by C) and her son Jace came in the room to ask her question. He was as cute as could be, leaning over to whisper in her ear and glancing back shyly at the webcam from time to time. It was such a sweet sneak peek into their dail...

Being the new kid on the block isn’t always easy. As we planned our big move to the PNW, friends in Texas and Tennessee shared their confidence in my ability to make friends. “You’re so personable!” “You always volunteer and find ways to meet people easily.” “You’re so nice, everyone will love you. You’ll make friends immediately, I know it!”

I appreciated these kind statements be...

May was quite the chaotic month.

Between graduation, our wedding/honeymoon and the subsequent cross-country move, I had a lot on my plate! Luckily, just before all of the festivities began, I had a fabulous engagement session with Caitlin and Tom in Nashville.

First impressions are a funny thing. I still remember the moment I saw Caitlin. We were visiting t...

I remember the first time I met Sara: I was aimlessly wandering around the lobby of Vanderbilt Owen Graduate School of Management, looking for Matthew in a sea of new graduate students. Sara, with a diet coke in one hand and a small plate of hors d’oeuvres in another, spotted me in the crowd and introduced herself. We started talking and I immediately felt comfortable with her, l...
