30a photoshoot on the beach- Davista Photography

Late April in Inlet Beach and such a beautiful night with this couple and their sweet baby girl on the way! Since this evening, their bundle of joy has arrived, and i’m so thankful we were able to get together to get some fabulous photographs. Not to mention how absolutely GORGEOUS Jennifer is to capture! She even had her hair and make done at Pure and Couture Salon in Destin to feel a little extra glam and ready for the photoshoot showing off her bump!

Just want to share a few from this night, congratulate this sweet couple and even share a book that is great in all aspects of life and every relationship you come across. Although I don't have kiddos of my own, the best thing I can give is advice to continue to love and show love everyday and seeing this couple and how much they care for one another prompted me to share one of the first books that gave me a passion for self discovery, The Five Love Languages. If you’re looking for a book to read together as couple, to learn what your love language is, or even to find out about other friends and family, I can’t recommend this book enough. Click on the link to purchase right from amazon.

Congratulations again!

He's here. Lindsey and Dan had their precious baby boy just earlier this week, and I couldn't be more excited, except when I'll get to squish and kiss on him and tell him how wonderful his mommy is. 

I have known Lindsey for 12 years. From our first day of college, countless laughs, teachable moments, to marrying the man of her dreams, and she's going to be such an incredible mom. (Not to leave out Dan, he's pretty great too!;) 

These two got married on a Florida beach only a few years ago, and did a trash the dress shoot in the very dress she wore here. Such special moments and places, and I'm so glad I've been able to be a part of those. 

Here's a few favorites from our sunset session just down the road from my house.

Destin Beach Family photos- The Chewies

I have known this beautiful growing family since before their oldest was 1! Now I've had the opportunity to basically follow them around the country and photograph family and maternity photos for them ever since. And what a huge blessing it is. 

I love seeing the dynamic and love in families, even closer to my heart when I know them and Kim is a dear friend of mine. I can't say I don't enjoy the family photo on the beach of everyone looking at the camera, but my favorites are definitely the playing in between and the boys running around as their parents kiss and most of all, the real laughs from each one of them. 

Here's a few favorites from our Destin beach family photoshoot.

Sunrise Maternity photographs at Wetlands Park in Las Vegas. It was a lovely morning and I felt so honored to photograph Tierney and Travis. I knew them  both when i lived there, and always love catching up. Beautiful souls.  A true power couple and decided I need to see them more often! (they don't know that yet, so shh ;) 

Tierney is absolutely stunning, always, inside and out and now with her sweet bump glowing even more. She's due literally any day now and i can't wait to see their baby girl! Lots of Facebook stalking soon. So here's just a few of my absolute favorites from our session. I couldn't stop shooting though, They both know how to work the camera and pose so perfectly.

While in Vegas, they suggested to see Travis' show and since he is seriously the reason i listen to Elvis, i couldn't pass it up, i've been wanting to go for a while! so if you're in vegas go see him perform at All Shook Up! A Tribute to the King. I added the Facebook link so you can check it out. it was FANTASTIC and i might have been dancing the whole time. maybe. 

Thank you both again, nice and early in the morning but it was so worth it! Congratulations! you're going to do wonderful together!

Las Vegas Maternity session- David and Valerie


I have had the opportunity to photograph this stunning couple from engagement on the strip and lake las vegas, to their wedding reception in california, and now maternity! i'm not sure if there is a more photogenic couple who are couple crazy about one another. we have had time to sit down and talk God, relationships and just life. i treasure this couple so much and am so glad to see their special blessings along the way. 

and seriously, she's just glowing and looks so beautiful. 



you can't tell by the (little) shade we found and how good they are at posing but it was sweaty hot this day. we found this cute park and got some fantastic shots! my favorite being the one above.


at every angle, she's just gorgeous. 

 they brought lots of goodies too! books, clothes, and these booties. so adorable. beautiful-maternity-photographsmaternity-photographer

david and valerie are so good at being the model-looking couple but we busted out a few funny ones too. David can get Val cracking up at any moment! maybe even teasing her a little bit ;) 


oh and did i mention stylish? goodness. if it wasn't a thousand seemingly degrees this day, i think i could've photographed them all day! 


 i'm so happy we found some shade in las vegas this day. and it turned out to be a great place for photos! 



thank you once again for letting me photograph the two of you! you both really are such a blessing, and when we get together i always feel refreshed! congratulations again and i'll be continuing to pray for your growing family!
