Brayleigh and her mama came to visit me shortly after I finished my new space! We had been working on it months prior to that and though it is not totally finished…I think it is coming along great! It was so much fun getting to photograph her and she is one smiley baby! Thanks Brayleigh for coming to see me and brightening my day with your adorable little face!

Hello and welcome to my new and updated website! FINALLY! oooofta.  It has been a lot of work and still a little yet to go, so look around and enjoy! This little sneak peak happens to be one of my wonderful friend’s little guy Liam. He is actually the very first session I got to photograph in my new space! I just love it! And it also helps that Liam is the cutest! I don’t think I will ever get tired of photographing children. I absolutely love their pure innocence, their curiosity, and their brutal honesty! Liam cracked me up the whole session. His mom says he loves to cook with his grandma and likes ….no loves kitchen utensils. So what better way to make a kid smile than the very thing that makes them happy. In Liam’s case…a kitchen utensil. That is why there is a photo of him with a whisk. And ya know…I am ok with that, because it shows how something so simple can bring such joy to a little soul.  I LOVE IT! If only we as adults can be joyful over more small things in our lives! And plus, his mommy will always look back on this photo and smile!

Liam- Thanks buddy for just being you! You are so fun to photograph…I definitely got my workout chasing you around! You are such a fun little boy and I am so glad I get the chance to see you grow up!

Oh sweet Iliana! I have been photographing this little bundle of sweetness since she has been days old! I got to see her every 3 months and watch her grow..learn to crawl…all the way to walking! It was so fun because Ili was born literally days before my Ruby! So it is fun to see someone else’s baby reach the same milestones. She is such an adorable little girl. With beautiful eyes and such curiosity she is always fun to photograph. Not only do I get to continue to see her, but I also get to photograph her new sibling soon!

Stacey, Imer, and Ili- Thank you guys so much for letting me be a part of your lives this past year! You both are great parents and Ili seems to be such a happy baby! I absolutely cannot wait to see your baby bump (Stacey), and someday meet your sweet bundle #2!

Calvin Calvin Calvin….this kid is seriously one of the happiest kids I know. Whenever I see him he is always smiling! He has such a joyful spirit about him. Calvin is very special to my family and me. He is my best friend’s baby boy and I have watched him grow from in the womb,  to in the hospital room hearing his first cry and now almost 2 he is my daughters ‘buyyyeee’  (this is a 20 month old’s attempt at saying ‘buddy’). I love how she lights up whenever she sees him, Kandi and I know they will have a special friendship someday! Kandi and Eric have also become great friends of me and my husband’s. As some of you may know, Kandi and I have a wedding business together (P.S. I Do Wedding Photography). From this partnership and our friendship before we have grown so much together and I thank God daily that she has become such a good friend to me! I am seriously so blessed to be in business with such a wonderful, honest, fun-loving, pure woman of Christ. In addition to her being one of my best gal pals…we basically photograph each others lives….from births, each others kids, families, and birthday party’s, we get to experience it all together. I think that is one of the reasons I feel so grateful to be asked to photograph her family. Being a photographer, I know how precious memories are and how even more precious they are when mommy/photographer gets to be in them! So here are some of my favorites from the session…I probably could have posted all of them!

Kandi, Eric, and Calvin- Kandi…to my friend…I cherish you and am so excited for our upcoming wedding season and to get to spend so many 14 hour Saturday’s with you! Eric…I have enjoyed so much getting to know you. Kandi is so lucky to have a man like you in her life. And Calvin…you are my ‘buyyyee’ too! I love you so much and can’t wait to see you grow up and  accomplish so many things!
