Walking into the Denny home is a much-needed breath of fresh air, a hug, a place to pause and a place to laugh deeply. How could you expect anything else when walking into the abode where Coral, Cody and Sweet Melody reside?

Beyond ‘artistic,’ Coral would say they don’t really have a decorating style, but I would beg to differ. From the doors they use as a headboard, which were also used at their wedding, to the large print of the first page of Pride + Prejudice (Seeing this hanging above the mantle as soon as I entered the Denny home made me love them even more.), to the rustic wood floors, and beautifully mismatched dining table chairs – Coral + Cody’s home is warm, inviting, calming. It’s home.
Unfortunately, Cody was unable to join us for this session, but Melody kept us well entertained. When I asked her what her favorite thing about her house was, she softly said something about “Rocks,” and Coral explained that Melody’s favorite thing to do is to sit outside and sort rocks. Oh, Melody.
I loved every minute of this session because it was so simple, so real. Coral and Melody just let me hang out while they went on with their afternoon enjoying the small, simple moments of the day. Coral was herself, so Melody felt safe to be herself, safe to get nice and close to my camera. Some of that was just Melody being Melody, and a toddler being a toddler, but a lot of it has to do with her mama’s calming and gentle spirit.
Coral, Cody, and Melody,
Thank you for being yourselves. Each of you is genuine and love those around you deeply. Getting to document a bit of your lives meant a lot to me. I can’t wait to meet your new little one!
