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.

you are ONE!

It happened. You turned one. I remember the day very clearly. Waking up early in the morning (around 4 a.m.) knowing you were on your way. I waited as long as I could to wake daddy. He jumped in the shower and then called Katy. (thank you Katy for saving our day...several times!) We rushed to the hospital around 6:30 I have babies pretty quickly. You were born at 8:32 a.m. Thank you for changing me. Thank you for making my dreams come true of having another baby to love. Thank you for loving me unconditionally. Thank you for depending on me. You are such a blessing to us all. We love you with all our hearts....

Mommy, Daddy, Bubba and Sissy
