I adored our afternoon together. This little gal was just a doll. Her mom and grandma had beautiful outfits and dressed her darling but she shined all on her own! Just a lovely full session shoot! Just click on the images to see the larger version!
Lacey was amazing. It was just me and her most of the time and we walked around finding the places we loved at the location we had chosen. We felt like we had hiked most of the dayi by the time we were done lol. The wind almost blew us away but we got some amazing shots! She was great about it all and we talked the whole time. Very comfortable and very wonderful! I loved this shoot and I'm thrilled to share it with you all! Lacey thank you for such a wonderful afternoon! Just click on the images to see the larger version!
This wedding was so wonderful, way beyond just the normal wonderful of love and new beginnings. This family had been through so much that could of torn them apart but instead made them stronger and caused them to grow closer together. Their love for Christ melted me. Every image left an impression on my heart and I'm so deeply thankful that I was gifted with these moments and the chance to record them. Just BEAUTIFUL!

Wendy and Von had never had their pictures taken professionally. I knew Wendy and Von from church and I was very excited that I got to shoot their engagement session. It was a MINI Session and I was planning to have 5 beautiful portraits for this session. As you can see by the blog, I absolutely could not do only 5 portraits from their session. They were beautiful together and they loved each other so much. This shoot was a pure blessing! Just click on the images to see the larger version!
Owen MELTED my heart the moment I met Him. He jumped out of the vehicle and came right up to me with the biggest grin on his face and I knew we were going to be buddies!

I told his mom that we would just let Own kinda do what he wanted and we'd just lead him a bit.. A child being a child is always my favorite way to shoot. Owen mesmerized me the moment I started following him.
Owen's smiles were real. I didn't ask him to smile in anyway. I just waited because I knew in just a moment he would smile again. He was like sunshine on a cloudy day! :)
Owen didn't mind me being there a bit. He kept me in mind the whole time always turning to see what I was doing and always smiling that sweet sweet smile.
Owen's big sister came along on the shoot and she worked really hard to get this piano shot for me. He loved this little piano. I was proud of her and I could tell how much Owen adored his big sister. They share something really special!
Owen truly just won my whole heart over. He told us all about lots of stuff and still smiled and watched the camera and my very very favorite moments where the moments like the image directly above when Own truly got tickled! What a doll!
And let me tell you.. Owen loved his bear hat. Adored it. When we changed him into this outfit we started him the hat. The only time I heard him say no was when they tried to take it from him! ADORABLE!
Owen's Mama handed Owen this stick. He immediately started playing with it. He knew all the right moves and all the right noises. I followed him for a long time as he played with that stick. My heart may never be whole again. It burst with joy in the late afternoon light.
When I knew that we had all the images we could handle, I told His Mama that it was a wrap. We were good but as we were walking back to the cars Owen ran by me and I was blessed to get the shot below. Such true joy and adoration in this one photograph. I just can't believe how much this shoot brought glory to our maker and such love to me.
How could your heart not melt at this little boy... My whole life I'll remember this shoot. Sometimes you just meet a spirit that never leaves you. Thank you so much Christy for letting me help you remember Owen's 2nd birthday!!!! <3
The Twomey's were adorable. I was having a bad day. I tried to cancel. They pushed forward and I'm so glad they did. I adored this session and by the end of it my spirit was in love with my work and them! Thank you Lord for clients that can see past me! =D ( click images to see the largest images)
This family was adorable! We had so so much fun! I could not wait to share this amazing MINI session!
Tiffany was a beautiful mom to be. We had a beautiful shoot and a really wonderful time together. Her and Tiny's baby "Wyatt" will be here tomorrow. I'm very excited to meet him!
He's sooooooo loved already! :)
Emma was a beautiful person. She was kind and lovely even in the way she spoke. Anything I asked of her she did instantly. Just an amazing Senior and a true honor to work with. Her and her family have a special place in my heart!
Lucas is turning 1 year old. His mama and daddy, Hope and Tyler, are very proud. And who wouldn't be of this wonderful adorable little boy! We had the best time! I could of followed him all day. I have several images that I'm going to share. Your gonna love them! :)
Lucas got down from his Mother's arms and ran immediately over to this little white picnic table that his Aunt and Uncle had in the back yard. I had all these plans and was carrying all my props to the back yard when I saw him sitting at this table just enjoying the moment. I stopped what I was doing and simply grabbed my camera. He was totally being himself and we went with it! My favorite way to start a shoot. = )
This crazy wonderful cat loved Lucas and loved my camera. She wouldn't stay out of the portraits!
We had to include her in a few :)
I adore Lucas' face here! Bahahhahahahah. He's like... "Hey! This is my show! Wadda ya think your doing???" Priceless!
The cat just wouldn't leave. It finally got right up in my lens. Lucas dealt really well with it all though. He just kept sitting at the beautiful little white picnic table.
All children are pure joy to me. Lucas melted me. Look at this little smile. ADORABLE!
We finally did get a few props in but he stole the show.
I could of just followed him around and the images would of been just as great!
This one just makes me giggle. He stared at me for the longest time. He wasn't sure what he was thinking about this gal with the camera that kept going click click click... or maybe he did know! Bhahahahahahahah
Classic. One of my very favorite portraits of Lucas. I hope when he's grown I can do another one of him just like this.
Lucas' cousin came out for this early morning shoot. He just giggled and giggled at him. It was adorable!
The only time during the whole shoot that Lucas got upset was when we wanted him to sit on this quilt. He never told us why but we sure got one adorable picture. Once we gave him his cake he was happy again!
Happy First Birthday Lucas!
As long as I live this may be one of my VERY favorite portraits. The pure joy is BEAUTIFUL!
