Nothing is more rewarding than photographing all our WATCH ME GROW kids.  They come in to the studio as babies and before I know it, they are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 . . . 8, 12, and so on.  What feeds my soul more than anything in photography is building a relationship with children, then watching them grow into the people they were meant to be. There is something special about the connection between a photographer and their subject.

And, I CAN’T STRESS THIS ENOUGH, once they get to know me, the more comfortable we are together, and the magic happens.  I look into their eyes and see their soul, and they show me a piece of theirs.  Here is a little boy who melts my heart, Jaxon. He’s 4 years old and lives in Pikeville. I’m afraid he is going to melt more hearts than mine in the years ahead.  He’s a little charmer, who knows how to work those eyes to get what he wants!!!!!!!

If you are beating yourself up because you haven’t had your child’s portraits made in a while, or EVER, just follow this link to BOOK A SESSION and get started or call 606-436-1988.

It’s not typical to photograph a newborn baby almost completely outside in May, but that’s exactly what little Palmer Elizabeth inspired me to do.  Here are the highlights of the first of many photo shoots.  She was born just in time for Mother’s Day on 5-13-17 and weighed 7 lbs. 9 oz. Proud parents are Kristin and Jonathan Collins.
