My husband and I had a very unique opportunity a few summers ago of hosting musician/singer/songwriter/actor/author, Val Emmich, in our home for a house concert and book reading. He was on a tour to promote his new book, The Reminders. I thought I would share the photos from this evening because we had so much fun! Val Emmich has been one of my favorite musicians over the past 10+ years but it had been awhile since he had toured in the south so I was very excited to have an opportunity to host him at our house. I had read his book and it was absolutely amazing. We had such a great evening of being with friends old and new and listening to wonderful music and hearing excerpts from Val’s book. Check out his new book, Dear Evan Hansen: The Novel, which is the novelization of the hit Broadway play, and has been on the New York Times Bestseller list for 19 weeks!

I had a wonderful time photographing this lovely family. We had a beautiful crisp late summer morning lakeside. There was a gorgeous fog which gave these photos an early morning dreamy look. They were so extremely photogenic and naturals in front of the camera. So much fun!
I loved photographing this gorgeous family! They won a session through the wonderful Abby's Angels Foundation. I really enjoyed meeting them and running around the park with them. These kids are so adorable! It was such a gorgeous evening and a fun photo session.
I love, love newborn sessions. It is so special to be let into someone's home when they have just had a baby. I photograph babies when they are 5-7 days old so they are brand new! I love the process of coaxing little ones to sleep and capturing every sweet, new thing about them. Babies change so fast so capturing these first days are so priceless. Every newborn session is different based on the baby. Well Baby K was a rockstar! She was amazing during her session. I got so many sweet photos of her and I love them all so much!
My mom, Dr. Gail Hale wrote a book! I was excited when she asked me to take the author photos for her book. We had an awesome afternoon taking photos and laughing together. Her book is now out and in the world and I am so proud to have been a small part of it. And yes I know I look like her. I love these photos of my mom!
