stephanie & jacob

I've had the privilege of growing up with Stephanie. We have known each other since elementary school and became close friends in high school. During those care free days, we spent many nights staying up late playing our favorite songs over and over on Guitar Hero. 

Stephanie is one of the golden ones. I admire her so much for her endless joy and positive outlook on life. She is the first one to laugh in any uncomfortable situation and always has something encouraging to say. She lives for her beautiful two-year-old son Jacob. I can only pray to be as strong of a mother as she is, one day!

Here are a few photos of Steph and sweet Jacob (just LOOK at his gorgeous lashes). Have you seen a better dressed mother-son duo? I think not. Enjoy!


There is no better way to recharge your creativity than to just get out in a new landscape and shoot. Yesterday my friend (and talented photographer) Austin and I shot a few images in our hometown. Rediscovering the simple beauty of green fields and the grandeur of creation is just what I needed to welcome the upcoming summer season here in Tennessee.
