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.

Last day.

I have walked to school with you for the last 6 years of my life.  I have prayed over you both everyday.  I have hoped you would make wise choices.  I have expected good behavior.  I have believed you would choose kindness.
You each have made me SO incredibly proud.  You have both excelled in your academics.  You have both been awarded citizen of the quarter every year.  You have both tried your hardest.  I could not have asked for more.
As we walked that last walk… on the last day of school… I knew it was so much more than that for us.  It was your last day at Wilson Elementary School also.  It was a bitter sweet day.  As your names were called for the awards…my eyes filled with tears.  Wilson had been good to us and you both had been good to Wilson.
We will start our new school adventure in August.  I am excited and nervous and scared and thrilled about homeschooling you both.  I can't wait to be a bigger part of your education.  After 6 years of praying about this … we finally said yes.  Yes… to God.  I know we will have good and bad days ahead of us.  But I also know WE can do anything… because of our faith.
I love you both… I know you will continue to make us proud.
