I have known Natalia since she was about 2 years old. Crazy, right? What’s even crazier is that she is graduating this May from high school. I can’t believe how fast time flies! When we discussed her session we talked about a few places that she would like to go during the session but she left…

Ok, y’all. Today is Friday Fun Day. I thought we could all use a little light hearted fun today so I’ll just put it right on the table for all to see. I just don’t like mustard. I do not like it here or there, I do not like it anywhere. But, I understand that everyone is entitled…

This post is for everyone who has ever said to themselves, “I will never subject myself to another family photo session EVER AGAIN!” You know who you are. I honestly believe that family sessions (and children’s sessions) are dreaded by the majority of parents. Don’t get me wrong! I’m sure there is a child somewhere on this planet that…

One of my favorite parts of a movie is when they add on outtakes to the end after the closing credits. C’mon y’all! How can you not love watching what went on behind the scenes? You get to see a lot more of the story than what is in the movie and it usually is…

Most families enjoy spending time together but when you are a member of this family there is a whole other meaning to the word “enjoy.” I’ve known them since 1993. We all went to the same church and I was introduced to Lauren, who was in the same grade as my sister and I. That…

Have you ever looked at a newborn and knew right away that sweet child was going to be just like her mama? I have! This little princess has her mama’s beauty, grace, and most definitely her attitude! There was no sleeping with the camera around, just a whole lot of expressions and I captured almost…

Two absolutely amazing people were married a few months ago. When I first got a message from Tamara asking if I was available on April 2nd, I was beyond excited! She only had a few months to finish up wedding plans and she needed a photographer. Her friend, Danielle, told her to call me and…

I have been planning this post for a very long time and I’m so excited to finally be able to share it with you. About 6 months ago, Carter’s Daddy walked into my office and started grilling me about my photography experience. I found it quite funny! I felt like I was interviewing for a…

When Pamela told me she was interested in a family session, I was so excited. To give you a bit of history, Pamela and I have known each other since 2nd grade. We went to school together all the way through our senior year in high school.  So, we have known each other a LONG…
