The Savvy Photographer

So there are a very few blogs I check on a regular basis... But by far, my MOST favorite is The Savvy Photographer! It's like my little piece of Heaven, online... Marsha has done such a wonderful job! She features some AMAZING photographers and has a weekly giveaway. (And we all know how I love a good giveaway!) Even if you're not a professional, her blog is definitely worth a look!

Felicia & David's Wedding Video

I recently created a video of some of Felicia and David's wedding photos and wanted to share. I featured one of the photos from their wedding in my A few favorites post. Their beach wedding back in July was absolutely beautiful!

Thank you both for allowing me to capture your special day! I wish you all the best for a wonderful life together! Enjoy!

Couples Shoot-Brandi and Jake

I've known Brandi for close to a year now and just recently met her husband Jake for the first time. They are the sweetest most down to earth couple and I really enjoy spending time with them. They've been married 2 years and you can just tell they are so in love.

I mentioned to Brandi a few weeks ago that I would love to get together with her and Jake, so we met up on Sunday afternoon. We went to a local park where Brandi reminisced, was the site of one of there first dates.

(Click on photos to enlarge.)

Precious moment.

Love the sun peaking through the trees.

GORGEOUS colors!

So in love...

A bit more serious.

Gorgeous sunset. Gorgeous leaves. Lots of love.

Brandi has one of those laughs that is absolutely contagious. Looking at this photo I can't help but giggle. I LOVE it!

Walking off into the sunset...

Brandi and Jake-I enjoyed spending the afternoon with you! Thank you so much for allowing me to capture your special moments!

It's the MOST wonderful time of the year!

Christmas is by far my favorite time of year!
In order to help everyone get ready for the holiday season I've decided to put together a special package. This package includes a mini session (one half hour), and a set of 20 Christmas cards and envelopes from one of the designs seen below. (Additional quantities may also be purchased.)

(Image can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

The cards are a slimline format measuring 8 in. x 4 in. or 4 in. x 8 in. depending on selected design. Total price for the package is $35.

Please e-mail me with questions or to schedule your session at

Couples Shoot-Morgan & Jordan

Jordan is my baby brother. He and Morgan have known each other for probably five years or better and have recently started dating. She is the sweetest girl and you can tell they just enjoy being together. I asked a few weeks back if I could do a shoot with them and we were finally able to work our schedules out to meet yesterday afternoon.

We started at Morgan's grandparents' house. They had this AWESOME yellow barn, complete with a "Tobaccoville" sign and these big white wooden doors!

I love the contrast of the door with all the vibrant colors.

They really enjoyed doing this photo; so much energy!

Love the way the sun is peaking through the beams of this old shed.

Afterward, we moved to the "downtown" area and hung out on the railroad tracks for a while.

Again, love the fall colors here and the tracks...

LOVE this shot!

Finally, we headed across the street to the park just as the sun was starting to hit the horizon.

MORE gorgeous Fall colors and the BEAUTIFUL setting sun!


A lot of people say my brother looks like a model. I can kind of see it here...

I really enjoyed capturing all of their sweet moments (and a few goofy ones too-haha). I wish I could post all of them, but I would be here ALL night!
Thank you Jordan and Morgan!
Love you!

I LOVE the glow of the setting sun!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE silhouettes.

This bunch has fun wherever they go, whatever they do!

And last but certainly not least....
Baby Zechariah, born in June.
I love the pureness and innocence.
This is hands down, my favorite of this year.

Check back soon! I'm working on a special holiday surprise...

Getting the ball rolling

I'm so excited to finally be pursuing my passion for photography! I thought for my first post I'd start with one of my most recent projects; my niece Aadyn's 3 year old session! Aadyn is the sweetest, most precious child. I've said to people on several occasions; I don't think I could love her more if she were my own!

Learning to make noise on the bridge.

Precious little face...

Wonder what she's thinking about...

Having a little fun spinning!

These are just a very few of my favorites! Next time I'll have some oldies but goodies to share!
