Meet Shelby…

Before our shoot, Melissa (Shelby’s mom) asked if I could get a picture of Shelby sleeping.  Without consulting Shelby first, I confidentiality answered, “Sure!”  Turns out, Shelby really liked my camera.  As a matter of fact, regardless of the warm room, feeding and soft blankets, Shelby was perfectly happy just watching me.   I’m sure she’s pretty while she’s sleeping, but just look […]

‘Dixie Dandelions’

When online registration opened for our Small Group (through 12Stone), I became crazy-excited when I got an email from Ashley and Jason saying they were thinking about joining.   It was perfect…  I have always had a desire to lead a Small Group.  And, since music is so important to me, I always envisioned live-worship.  (The first time I met […]

What a Great Family

It started as a family session… …yet ended with me feeling like I had known each one of them for years.   We were given permission to end this session at Mill Creek’s football field where Tommy spends most of his time.  It warmed my heart to see, not only is Tommy a great football player, […]

Allen, Amy, Brody & Harrison

I have a theory: No matter how much you plan for it, the day of your session will NEVER run smoothly.  If your child misses his  nap, spills chocolate milk all over his clean ‘picture’ clothes, has a meltdown getting into the car, simply decides he doesn’t really want pictures that day or, my favorite, you and […]
