My Top 50 Portraits

I’m a people person. Somewhere down the line I got classified as an ESFJ, which means I’m BIG on people and a MAJOR extrovert! So naturally, it’s hard for me to take a picture if a FACE isn’t involved. My love for photography started with people. Actually, my love for ART started with people! I […]

The Kindest Words

I am a horrible compliment taker. There is just something awkward about getting praised by someone else! At least I personally have never been able to take it very well. 🙄 You’ll see me fidget in my chair, blush a bright shade of red and mumble, “aw thanks so much!”. 😂 Let’s just say, it […]

One of the things I miss most about my childhood are the summer days filled with heart-racing adventures, soul-crushing tragedy, and barely achieved victories, all safely confined within the pages of a […]

The Best of 2017 Part One!

2017 is halfway over! This morning I sat down and pulled some of my favorite wedding-day images from this year so far. Each picture is a favorite of mine for a different reason, from quiet moments, to deep belly laughs and tears of joy. I can’t even BELIEVE how wonderful each and every couple has […]

The Road

“The Road goes ever on and on…” These words from J.R.R. Tolkien’s imagination have been running through my own mind lately. After all, it’s hard NOT to contemplate the twists and turns of life’s road while in a season of such transition and change! The concept of a journey or an adventure have settled in my […]
