When it comes time to photograph my own children, I always have second thoughts and apprehensions about even coming close to get one or two good shots, let alone a handful. I will truthfully say that when it comes time for me to take pictures of my own kids, I come home frustrated and in tears that it didn't go as I had envisioned. This session was different though. I needed a fresh session for a mentoring class I was getting ready to record so I had to buckle down and really focus....

I was lucky enough to be in town for Miss Savannah's 1 year Birthday session & cake smash! I had been honored to take her baby bump photos and newborn photos, so to say I was excited about her cake smash session would be an understatement! As soon as Miss Savannah saw me, she reached out her sweet little baby arms to me and let me hold her for a good 10 minutes. 10 minutes of pure heaven. 10 minutes of sweet baby talk, snuggles, and baby squish wrapped around my hip. I...

I decided to start a new lifestyle photography series that documents a day in the life of my boys and myself. With me being such a perfectionist when it comes to my work (and everything in general), I know this will be beneficial for me to carry out so that I can be reminded that life is hardly perfect and that imperfection is beautiful.

It's been over a year now, but I still have that regret. That pit in my stomach. That remorse of not taking action. That empty feeling that can swallow you up. It's been over a year since my Great-Grandmother has passed. She was 93 years old when she made her visit to Heaven, several years following my late Great-Grandfather. I have such nostalgic memories of my Great-Grandparents growing up; I can only describe it as the perfect childhood memories you could possibly envision. I would play at their house in the back yard blowing bubbles, observing...

Over the past week, I have done a lot of soul searching. PUT SIMPLY, I WANT TO STAY AFFORDABLE. Soul searching about my photography, my goals, and my services to others. Earlier in the year I had announced my new pricing, but it was just so hard for me to swallow. I jumped to an almost 50% increase and that just never sat right with me. I knew my services were comparable to others who charge the same (or more), but I never thought to account in WHY I charged the way...
