Cait and her family are goals. Seriously, though. Through the chaos of having four children, at one point all under the age of four, they seriously make it look like a breeze.

I had been DYING to visit Cait since she relocated from Indy to Cincinnati and had these little sugars. Some may know that Cait and I shoot quite a bit together and she’s kind of become my life coach in a sense. It’s like she somehow knows when I need some encouragement or someone to just work things out with. Through having babies and being in different cities, she never fails at being a consistent friend and someone I cherish and value so much in my life.

Below are a few favorites from their in home lifestyle session with their new additions, Hayes and Ephraim // 1 month old.

P.s. Hire me and let me shoot your family chaos in your homes. Things seriously become magical.

Third Wheel

I feel like I’ve somewhat been the third wheel in Erik and Meagan’s relationship. I’m totally not mad about it. I’ve photographed their family, just them, their engagement, their wedding, their maternity session and now the birth of their daughter. As a photographer this is exactly what I got into the business for. To document the real. To document life. I’ve been lucky enough to follow along on their crazy ride! Here are a few memorable images from the birth of their daughter Maddie, you know the babe that demoted me from third wheel to fourth! ha!

L I F E: Welcoming Sylas

This day was one of the most magical days I’ve had in quite some time. It started when I woke up at 8 am from a missed voicemail from Shea’s mother. Shea was in labor and it was moving pretty fast, and they invited me to photograph the experience. The dilemma I had was that I was set to photograph a small wedding at noon. It didn’t take long for me to decide that I would try to make it to the birth first and then head to the wedding. So, I left my house with wet hair, semi wedding like clothing, and my camera. We waited until the very last-minute I could possibly stay in order to be at the wedding on time, but Sylas was camera-shy. I got word he was born half way through the wedding so I came back to check this little guy out. Below are the before and after his birth! Check them out!
