Monnett – Maternity

Morgan and I have known each other for awhile now, but she has semi recently joined AEP as my assistant and holy wowza I don’t know what I’d do without her. It all started when we had a brief conversation during one of her family sessions. She mentioned that she could totally be my assistant if I felt like I needed one. I didn’t know what I was missing in my life until she came in and showed me. You guys, I was a hot mess. I still am, but I’m a better hot mess version because of her ha!

I love her family so much. Lyla comes into the studio when Morgan works and she’s kind of become my little buddy. I’ve noticed her opening up to  me and I’ve gotten to know her sassy quirkiness throughout the few months they’ve been helping me out! She’s so dang smart y’all. Like I can’t deal with how smart she is. It’s going to be amazing to see her interact with her little brother.

Also, can I just shout out Brandon real quick? I know he gets to hear all of my ups and downs in this crazy owning my own business world when I’m corresponding with Morgan and he is such a trooper! He even talks things out and provides ideas when we are in a bind. I promise, okay I’ll try, not to text during dinner time and have Morgan break her own rules Brandon!

Peep their magical maternity/ family session below!

Styled, Part I

I think the biggest thing I’ve cherished this last year is meeting some super rad genuine people within my small town. I moved away when I went to college near Chicago, did a small stint in Maryland for a few months and ultimately came home to grow my adult roots. My small town will always be my home base, even when I’m coming and going. I’ve loved watching creatives in this humble town of ours come together and create.

Speaking of rad locals. This styled shoot was a dream come true and I couldn’t have made it happen on my own. Lavender and Hops Style Lounge, Vanessa Nicole Planning and Events  and I dreamed up the initial more simplistic idea of a husband and wife styled shoot. Turns out we are extra and wanted to involve three gal models instead and my crazy idea of incorporating livestock (more of that in part II).

Sometimes things just kind of fall together. Jessica’s On Main recently opened their bridal dress boutique and to say we were excited about incorporating their dresses into the shoot would be and understatement. Pam and her team were incredible to work with and the dresses OH MY LORD!

Peep the magic below.
