These last few weeks have been a time of soul searching and reflection, culminating with the realization that I want to do more, to give more, to be more. For the past six years I was a teacher and I loved it with all my heart. I loved pouring into my students, forming relationships with […]

I’m starting to think that mother nature holds a grudge against some of my couples. On multiple occasions I’ve rescheduled an engagement shoot due to weather only to find their reschedule date also has bad weather! (Particularly poor Kelsey & Tyler who rescheduled four times and still had rain (and a rainbow!) on their engagement shoot!)  Jessica and David have […]

Laura Beth is one of the sweetest young women I know. I’ve had the privilege of getting to see her grow up from the ripe old age of 6 when her family started attending our church and she became fast friends with my sister Grace. Over the years, Laura Beth known by many as LB […]

April shower bring May flowers and beautiful engagement shoots. When the weather started forecasting rain, rather than getting upset Phil and Laura Beth decided to embrace the rain in hopes to get more unique photos. They ended up getting the best of both worlds; as their shoot started out with a light drizzle only to […]

Meet my family.  In the spirit of summer I thought I’d take a break from my traditional photo shoot posts and instead introduce my crazy family to you.  I have already mentioned in my “About Me” section that I am the oldest of seven, but I thought it might be fun for you to put […]

I recently had the privilege of photographing a very special couple being reunited for the first time in thirteen months!  Their love story is such a special one.  Scott and Sarah met in March 2012 during a last minute Spring Break trip that Sarah took to visit her brother and nephew in Fort Polk, Louisiana. […]

Anyone who knows me knows that I am not a winter person.  I hate the cold and as a result hate the snow.  In my ideal world it would be warm all year round with the exception of the month of December where it would be just chilly enough to wear cute sweaters and boots and where […]

I’m so excited to finally tell you about the new albums that I am introducing into my top wedding packages!  I currently offer three wedding packages, and for my top package I set out to find an album that truly stood out above the rest.  I wanted something that would be a beautiful work of […]

In many ways, the essence of photography is being able to capture and forever memorialize the most important events and emotions in a person’s life.  I can’t think of any better example than yesterday evening when my husband and I had the honor of photographing Staff Sergeant Mark Cornett’s homecoming from Afghanistan.  From the moment […]

              The sun was shining, the temperature was perfect, the backdrop was gorgeous, and the gnats were in full swarm as I met Sarah and Jason for their engagement pictures at Sugarloaf Mountain.  Despite the gnats, we had an awesome time exploring the mountain that they’ve hiked up many […]
