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.

today I read a blog of a mama who had to say goodbye to her 8 month old son. my heart ached for her. fact...still aches. my family knows a bit about loss. my oldest brother died when he was 16 (i was 2) from cancer. i can't count how many times my mom has told me to be thankful..even on the hard days. today...when my baby woke up screaming i grabbed him up and just held him. thankful that i could feel his breath on my neck and his tears on my shoulder. thankful that i could turn his frown into a smile. thankful just to hold him...just to be. i am on my way out the door to pick up my big kids from thankful. thank you Lord that you are allowing me this time with my children...however long it may be. may i be forever thankful for every second. even the hard ones....
