I mean, I really, REALLY love fall. I love when the sea of green morphs into a wild palette of reds, yellows and oranges. I've seen some pretty fall days, but a Kentucky fall day is a force to be reckoned with. I also really, REALLY love that my client showed up in this incredible red maternity gown. AH-MAZING.  And so, as always, I'll leave a few of my favorites here for you.

Brooklyn is ONE! - Elizabthtown, KY Family Photographer http://www.morganandmainphoto.com/blog/2015/10/brooklyn-is-one-elizabthtown-ky-family-photographer   Little Miss Brooklyn came to see me for her Cake Smash session and brought her big sister along! These two cuties were just too much fun! This was also the session that I learned to never underestimate the walking ability of a one year old. This little munchkin was a professional, which made a cake smash session interesting to say the least! Here are just a few of my favorite images from the session!

Saunders Springs Maternity Session - Ana http://www.morganandmainphoto.com/blog/2015/8/saunders-springs-maternity-session---ana I'm SO SO SO excited to share some more images from this gorgeous mama's maternity session. When Ana and I first started talking about what ideas she had for her session, I immediately got insanely excited! First, she wanted a maternity gown. I love maternity gowns and hadn't yet had anyone ask to use one, so you can only imagine how happy I was to accommodate her request for that! Then, I got to thinking about how gorgeous it would be down in the water at Saunders Springs in Radcliff, KY. When I asked her if she might be open to the idea of actually doing them in the water, I was just over the moon when she said that she was thinking the same thing! Now, I get excited for every session I am fortunate enough, make no mistake, but I kid you not, I was absolutely giddy about this one! Ana (and her husband and little girl) were so adventurous and up for anything, and it made for some incredible images! Here are some of my very favorite from this session...

A Grand Adventure! http://www.morganandmainphoto.com/blog/2015/8/a-grand-adventure    I can not even tell you guys how excited I was to shoot this superhero pregnancy announcement session! Sweet Mr. Wesley is going to be a big brother and needed to announce in style that he would be getting a baby sister and that his sidekick would be arriving this January! Before the session, we talked about different props and ideas they wanted to include in their session, which is great because it gives my creativity a little head start! She planned two different outfits for the session and brought lots of fun things to use as props (baby shoes, the ultrasound and a special baseball bat were just a few!). Summers in Kentucky can be unbearably hot at times, and the evening of this session was no exception. I think with heat index, it was hovering a little about 100 degrees that evening. To say we were hot and sweaty would be such an understatement! We haven't had another evening quite like that since the session either...just my luck! Ha! We all pushed through the heat though and had a great time at Bernheim Forest. If you live in the area and haven't been out to Bernheim Forest, I highly recommend it- it's a gorgeous place! Here's just a few of my favorite images from this action-packed session!

  It was such an honor to be able to help capture such a special time in your lives! Congratulations Nance, Eric and Wesley on your growing family!

Baby Leo - Louisville and Elizabethtown, KY Newborn Photographer http://www.morganandmainphoto.com/blog/2015/7/baby-leo---louisville-and-elizabethtown-ky-newborn-photographer   I was so THRILLED to meet little Mr. Leo for his newborn session! He was right about 2 weeks already when he had his first photo shoot here at my little studio in Shepherdsville! This little guy... let me tell you... was an absolute all-star during his session. Typically, the older the baby is at the time of the session, they just won't sleep quite as soundly or they wake up often to feed and fuss a bit. Not little Leo though! We ended up doing quite the marathon newborn session- a whopping *5* hours, oh yes.. FIVE hours because he was so sleepy and patient! With all that time, we were able to work our way through quite a few sets and props. Mom and Dad brought some great props, so we just kept going since Leo was being such a patient little model for us! I can't even tell you how much I love when parents bring in their own props- ESPECIALLY when they are sentimental in their meaning. Leo's session included his daddy's baseball glove and baseball from his own childhood, a stuffed lion we used during the maternity session, a guitar and a handmade Superman cape from when his daddy was little! Here are a few of my most favorite images from sweet Leo's session- enjoy!

Rachel and Ryan: Spring Maternity Session - Louisville, KY Photographer http://www.morganandmainphoto.com/blog/2015/5/springmaternitylouisvilleky I had the joy of meeting up with Rachel and Ryan a few weeks ago for their maternity session! We braved the Kentucky heat and humidity (oh my goodness...it was SO hot that day!) and headed out to Bernheim Forest just outside of Louisville for their session. I'm so excited for these two to become parents. They are both such sweet and gentle people, they'll be amazing at the whole parenting gig. Here's a peek at my very favorite photos from this gorgeous maternity session! Enjoy!

Memorial Day - Louisville, KY http://www.morganandmainphoto.com/blog/2015/5/memorial-day---louisville-ky Hey everyone! I hope you're enjoying your Memorial Day weekend! I also hope that you'll take the time today to remember all those that have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Yesterday was such a gorgeous day to be out and about so I took my family down to Waterfront Park in downtown Louisville to view the 15,000 American flags they have on display this weekend. It was a pretty impressive display of flags, to say the least. My husband and I have been trying to explain all weekend long to our 5 year old what Memorial Day is all about and we thought bringing her down to view the flags would be a great learning experience for her.

I have to say, one of my proudest mommy moments happened during this outing. As we walked through Waterfront Park, she noticed that some of the flags had been knocked over, or blown over, or were tipped just right so they were on the ground. So what does she do? She carefully combs through the endless rows of flags and picks up dozens of knocked over flags and gently places them upright again. She understands that caring for our flag is an important expression of respect and happily spent time making sure the flags were upright and looking nice for anyone that wanted to view the display.

Proud mama right here! Alright everyone, have a fantastic weekend and please remember what Memorial Day is all about!

Celebrating All You Beautiful Mothers - Louisville, KY Family Photographer http://www.morganandmainphoto.com/blog/2015/5/celebratemothers Can you believe it's almost Mother's Day already? I love Mother's Day, personally. We don't take nearly enough time to stop and tell the moms in our life how much they mean to us and how grateful we are for everything they do. Now that I'm a mom myself, every day I'm reminded of how much my mom did for my brother and I growing up as I now do the same for my little girl. It's truly a never ending job. The laundry, making meals, lesson plans, planning activities, finding everyday teachable moments, kissing boo-boos, brushing hair, cuddling, cleaning, driving 40 minutes to gymnastics and back. We never stop. So mommies, thank you, for all you do. We're raising some amazing kiddos that are going to do amazing things for this world. We deserve a pat on the back! 

Taking pictures WITH your kids is JUST as important (if not MORE important) than just taking pictures OF your kids. One day, your kids will look back at old photos and want to see the mom they remember when they were little. They love you for you, just the way you are and will cherish those photos more than you will someday. 

To celebrate all you amazing moms, I'll be sharing some of my favorite MOM images and sessions with you this week! 

The first session I'm sharing this week is one of my all time favorite Mommy & Me sessions- a 50's inspired photo session! We had SO much fun with this one! Nothing cuter than a tiny little rockabilly girl!

Another FREE Disney Printable! http://www.morganandmainphoto.com/blog/2015/4/another-free-disney-printable Okay, so as we get closer to going on our first Disney Cruise, I decided I desperately needed some new luggage tags. The luggage tags that are currently attached still have the address from 3 houses ago. I scoured Pinterest like any normal human being would, but I didn't find anything I liked. And definitely nothing that was super cute and Disney that I liked. So I made my own! I figured I would go ahead and share them with all you fine travelers as well! These would make great backpack tags, luggage tags, stroller tags, etc. I printed mine at wallet size, so I was able to get 9 per page. I suggest printing them on cardstock, and then laminating them. Use a hole punch and then attach with ribbon and you're ready to go! Just go here to download, save to your desktop, and print! 

 

And in case you haven't seen it, I also have made some awesome printable recipe cards if you hop over here

Mickey Recipe Card Printable! http://www.morganandmainphoto.com/blog/2015/4/mickey-recipe-card-printable Hey there! My family and I are getting ready for our first Disney cruise! If you've ever been on a Disney cruise, you've probably heard of the Fish Extenders (fun little trading between families of small gifts and surprises during the cruise). So, being the crafty mama that I am, I created these cute little recipe cards. These would make great Fish Extenders or just a fun little gift to yourself if you happen to like Mickey as much as I do! They are sized to be 4x6, so you can fit two per page and there are two different designs. Just go here and here to download and print!
