Gratitude doesn’t cut it

I cannot put into words the gratitude I have for every single person who has had something to do with my business over the past 8 years. 8 years. 8 years of couples, stories, and photographs. I’ve given my heart and soul to this business. In fact, I even got so lost in it that I forgot who I was aside from the camera. You’ve watched me grow. From the first weddin[...]

A year with my Barn Babies

Do you remember Nicole and Mark's country wedding?   It was at this wedding that I met the most adorable litter of buff-colored kittens. Throughout the day these kittens were little guests at the wedding reception. Sitting on shoulders. Playing with flowers. Stealing cuddles during conversations.

I forget my work outs because I want to get that next session finished and then all of a sudden it's midnight and I should probably sleep. And then the last casualty of wedding season... the blog.

I didn't know what to expect. Heck, part of me didn't even want to do it. I was going completely out of my comfort zone. I was going alone into not only a cabin with three room mates that I had never met... but into a whole camp with 400+ photographers running around.  Other than at weddings, I basically avoid situations like this unless I have my best friend or br[...]
