Monday's Faves


When I leave for a photo session, I grab 3 to 5 quilts. This will insure that one of them will match what  my client shows up wearing. I tend to grab quilts that are full of neutrals and different colors. I also choose quilts with more blue. Blue tends to match outfits better than other colors. Below are three that would definitely be in my car. Comment on my post social posts with what quilts you prefer for your shoots! 


Patchwork Quilt - $100

This quilt is made up of different colors and lots of blue. There is a really good chance your client's outfit will match this quilt since it has a variety of colors. And, this one is in great condition!

Patchwork Quilt - $75

This quilt is full of neutral colors and also a variety of colors. This quilt will match so well for so many outfits. This is a must for me when I head out to a session!

Log Cabin Quilt - $70

This is another favorite. It is full of blue which is my favorite color for photo sessions. Along with the blue, are other neutral colors that will match well with outfits.

Shout Out | Jacquelyn Arora Photography

One of my favorite things is taking photos for people I know and care about. Jacquelyn, of Jacquelyn Arora Photography, nailed this photo shoot. She takes pride in producing photos full of emotion and connection. This is why she loves documenting families. She has known this adorable (these kids y'all) family for 10 years. I love how Jacquelyn photographed them as a *family*. So many tickles, so many laughs, and so many snuggles. They ended their session letting the kids run around under her Stitched and Found quilt and then some final snuggles. 

Meet the Photographer

Meet Jacquelyn! She is born and raised in Westerville, Ohio. Her heart is with photographing families because she loves to capture raw family moments, emotion, joy, laughter, and even tears. She feels so lucky that she gets to do this everyday and to be able to give families such delicate, heartfelt memories. 

She began her journey in 2010, after her son was born. She is self taught but is always learning and loves online education. She was a labor and delivery RN for 10 years but began shooting more and more and over the last 3-4 years has gone full time. She has three kids (twin boy/girl age 4, and a 7 year old boy). They keep her extra extra busy. Her kids don't always love her constant documenting, but her new dog, Norman, doesn't mind the camera one bit!

Shout Out | Kathryn Johnson Photography


This is a special session, one that no one wants to shoot. These beautiful photos document the loss of a child. This couple experienced an ectopic pregnancy and these photos were taken instead of their planned maternity session. In memory of their baby, they planted a flower garden. The flowers in these photos are from that same garden. Kathryn did an excellent job capturing the sorrow and life through the photos. 

As photographers, we are here to capture people's lives. And not all of our days are full of happy smiles. Our lives are full of loss, and I am thankful that Kathryn captured these real, hard moments. 

This quilt of Kathryn's that graces these photos is one of my favorites. It is a beautiful quilt that is full of pastels. Scroll to the end to learn more about Kathryn and to show her some love in the comments!

Her favorite subject is her 19 month old daughter, Norah, and that will soon grow to include a baby boy in January.
