Brittany won my website launch giveaway, and it was such a pleasure to work with her and her sweet family.
My goal for a session is to help your family feel relaxed and comfortable. We don't stress about the stiff, perfect poses, we just talk, laugh and play and capture some real interaction. I believe that those in between moments is where you get a glimpse into someones life and the love they share.

"Embrace Grace Photography!
The name says it all, I can't express how much of an honor this family shoot was.
I won a photoshoot with her by entering a contest, and boy was I missing out! I should have been going to her along time ago.
Alex made us feel so comfortable, accepted the way we were, beautiful, she accepted my crazy family with open arms, worked around my kids craziness, and she is absolutely amazing at communicating, and being friendly.
It takes a-lot for my husband to open up, he's a very shy, not a talkative person until he opens up. Alex had him smiling with a true smile, being himself, talking, as if we had known her our whole lives.
She not only did ones with my family, but she took the time to do just me and my husband. Sneaking us away and made us feel like we were the only two again, like we were 13 and shy with butterflies, not once did anything feel posed, or practiced
She genuinely caught us in real life laughing, being cuddly and fun!
The photos were stunning! I actually had real tears with just the sneak peaks!
I have never felt so surreal looking at my own family, seeing myself, and family in someone else's eyes.
Alex is an inspiration, don't even think about it, just let her show you how she see's you.
She see's the world, so beautifully."
Brittany & Austin
I love to sneak mom and dad away for some shots of just them while the kids play so they can treat it like a mini date night. Getting cozy and snuggling up, laughing and getting to just talk for a few minutes helps create some super sweet and intimate photos that you can get excited about. The more fun we have the more you can just be yourself in front of my lens. Capturing genuine laughs and moments are so important to me.
Their love story is so unique and powerful of how two people can come together in love, from completely different backgrounds and work together to break generational curses and heal to raise children who can have a steady and loving home.Their tattoos caught my attention and having a moment to just listen to their story and connect and encourage one another is my favorite part of my job. Storytelling.. its is humbling and empowering and why I am so passionate to serve my clients in grace.
Their tattoos have a matching star are for their miscarriage, precious baby Brody. Austin has an awesome landscape with a bear for his boys, (Ella was a surprise so hers will happen sometime), ha! Brittany's is about the break. Letting go of another part of her that she's overcame and doing better for her children. Breaking generational curses from her own mother and childhood. She shows up everyday and works hard on herself and for her family and continuing to grow and learn. I am so proud of her and love how supportive Austin is. Teamwork makes the dream work.
I love when someone lights up telling me about their ink.. stories and testimonies are told through all forms of art. Passionately telling your story through my images is expressing art for me. I strive to not just be a photographer but someone who can walk through a season of life with you and capture memories you'll never want to forget. Listening is empowering. I'll be sharing many stories with you to make you feel like you're not alone. Stay tuned!
Fun & Lighthearted too!
I love popping champagne shots too!
