Jean & Leah

    I met up with my friend Jean and her beautiful daughter Leah a few weeks ago, and well sometimes I feel like the only times I see my friends is when they book a session! Life happens....we all have our own families, our jobs, and well its just busy ; ( Part of being a "Grown Up"  We all try as hard as we can to text/call/email....but sometimes you just need a night out to dinner so you can catch up and just do what women do...gossip. Lol. I love my friends, and I truly have the best group of friends on the planet....and to all my friends.... Life is busy, but I love each one of you, and thank you for always being there for me!! So everyone, do something THOUGHTFUL for a friend today! It doesn't have to be big...maybe a hand written note, a small gift, or demand a night out- Why?? Because they will always be there for you when you need them. So to all my friends.... I love yall so much!! XOXOXO
My friend Jean and her daughter Leah Grace

My Life

    I have been so scared to blog about "myself" on my blog (duh.... I know that sounds crazy, because it is my blog and all...ha ha)  I was afraid that it wouldn't look "Professional" and in reality I want my clients to know me on a deeper level other than "the lady with the camera" ha ha. I am human too, and I honestly want to put everything on the table and I want my clients to feel comfortable around me....especially during our session. I am such a talker the day of the session, because I want my clients to feel like I am just one of their friends taking their pictures.  I have been so blessed that normally after every session I become great friends with my clients, and it's pretty dang awesome!! I truly believe I have the best and most supportive clients ever. 
   Over the past several months my personal life has had so many changes, and thankfully everyone has  been so understanding. It has been probably one of the biggest challenges of my life to go through this divorce, but I know GOD has huge plans for my kids and I, and this business is just a major bonus. I am able to witness LOVE everyday....whether I am shooting a couple that is completely smitten over each other during an Engagement Session, a beautiful couple who are about to say " I DO" at their Wedding, or during a Family Session when the family is so happy & perfect they are like the Brady Bunch.  Love is everywhere and I refuse to be bitter or angry, and though my life isn't going as I just means that I really need to embrace the Love & Beauty that I do have around  me ....which is GOD, My three amazing children, my family and friends, and my amazing clients.

     I debated on posting this .....ummmm just about all week long, but ya know- I am who I am, and I am proud of me. XoXoXoXo.....and that a whole -lotta- love!!
I chose this shot for this blog post, because these three kiddos are what keep me going each day. I am only looking towards the future, and its going to be awesome!
Brody, Lexi, and Colton- You three are my world!

Mickey & Amanda

  I first met Amanda years ago when I was a Bartender at Logan's Roadhouse. We worked together for several years... I spent 6 years of my life as a bartender, and it was then when I finally realized that I wanted to pursue photography as a career....So I finally took the HUGE leap to follow my dream ; )

  Enough about my life.....ha ha. I met up with Amanda & Mickey for their session, and they are so smitten over each other. They just laughed, kissed, and smiled the whole session. I am so happy for you two, and I had such a blast hanging out with you all for the day!!

  Kyra is turning 4 and her lil sis Aubrey is 6 months old. These two sisters are so sweet and sassy.
