rebecca comes with an amazing assistant … her cousin Cassie. that’s how we got introduced and boy am i happy we did. cassie is one of my closest friends and i was so happy when she told me about her cousin that wanted her senior portraits done. i had so much fun shooting these and lots of laughs with rebecca, cassie, and rebecca’s mom sue. we met and drove downtown where we basically went scavenger hunting for some good spots. i can’t get enough of her smirk … and serious look. she is so photogenic! i love it.

We all know how much I stinkinlovematernitysessions. It all started months ago when a old high school friend of mine, Bethany … contacted me about surprising her sister with a maternity session. are you kidding me?! I think that is such a fun and unique gift idea! Something she will cherish forever … her very last pregnancy pictures. Yup, that’s right folks … this babe is her last. We think anyway … she is pretty good at having kids though. Look at her 3 gorgeous, cute, adorable girls she had already. After Matt did some convincing to try for a…Continue Reading >
Three years ago today, August 11, 2007 … I made a promise. I vowed myself to the man of my dreams. I promised that I would be with him until death do us part, in front of our closest family and friends. I think back to when we were dating … two teenagers in love. Its crazy how much we’ve grown since then as people and our relationship. Some people look at younger couples getting married and think its wrong to do that so young and say, you don’t know what you want in life yet. Well I’ve been…Continue Reading >

i’m starting something new here on the blog, something i hope to keep up with. i’ve seen other bloggers doing some fun things on their blog so that you can better get to know them so i thought why not. when i worked a full time job at a company, i use to hate mondays. it meant back to work. but now that i love my job and actually working for myself, its one of my favorite days of the week. just something about getting back into the mix of things after a fun weekend sounds appealing to me. must…Continue Reading >
when booking new clients, especially young senior girls … i always try to warn them that i am super laid back. ” its like going out with your girlfriends, just having fun and snapping some pictures” is what i always tell them. and thats exactly what it is. just some girls, hitting the town and having fun. i try not to take myself too serious, ya know … life is more fun if you relax and enjoy yourself. i use to get myself so worked up and nervous before a shoot because there is alot of pressure on me but…Continue Reading >
