I can remember always having a camera with me from the time I was young. I loved capturing the moments I was living. I knew it would always be important for me to look back on my life and not only see my memories but truly feel them. I think that is why photography found me. It is true of me that you can find me most of the time with a camera in my hands. My friends and family understand that fully. I am grateful to capture and document the real moments of our lives. That is why my photography won't always be the "perfect" everyone looking at the camera pictures. I live for the moments when my clients forget I'm even there and just be. My daddy made me appreciate those kind of moments. His passing made me even more passionate about my photography. Grandparent pictures are one of my favorites! To see generation after generation and the love that lives forever honestly touches my soul. I would be honored to capture your memories for you. Thank you for letting me be a small part of your lives. I hope my photography will allow you to always feel the moments you live.

CALLING ALL SENIORS! Here are just a few of my seniors from the past. I absolutely love doing these shoots. It is always such a blessing for me to be a small part of a really important time in your lives. I especially love when your parents come and share with me all the stories from when you were little tykes! I love seeing the love in their eyes for their babies. I know now what that love is because I am a parent too. I also love seeing the excitement in your eyes for this new chapter in your lives. I am proud of you seniors! Keep reaching for the stars!
(seniors cont.) To my special friend Hillary...thanks for letting me be part of your senior year! I enjoyed all of our shoots together! I remember when your mom was about to have you...I think I was in eighth grade. (Does that make me old?) It was so amazing seeing the love and strength your mom had for you during your senior year. I'm sure it has been that way your entire life. I know she is so proud of you and so am I. I hope you are loving college. Go chase your dreams girl! Be happy! xoxo
My newest nephew is here! I was so happy to do little Tanner's newborn pics and his announcement last week. He is such a cutie! Big brother did great too! What fun these Gardner boys are going to be! They have a wonderful mommy and daddy who love each other and them very much. Congrats!!!

Finally! I was so super excited to do this shoot for my sister and brother-in-law. Canaan always has to give me a hard time for always taking pictures...but look what we created! I am grateful you let me do this for you. We all had so much fun...maybe even Canaan...though he would never tell me. Shannon...I hope you loved this shoot as much as I did. They are growing up so fast. It feels like we captured their personalities....so maybe you can keep them young for a little while longer. xoxo
