Simply {Merry Christmas}

Here are a few from the Christmas shoots I did this past month. I want to thank everyone of my clients who welcomed me into their homes and allowed me to capture their family and the love that surrounds them.

"The love of a family is life's greatest blessing"

Happy Holidays everyone!!!!

I am so happy to introduce.....
Brandy and Tim!!!

I love them. Simple as that. Brandy is almost 20 weeks. She is doing my Maternity Step package so I have the honor of documenting her and Tim throughout their pregnancy with a beginning, middle, and end and then when their little bundle of joy arrives they are going to call me up so I can go over there and hug, cuddle, squish, squeeze, .....uhhh...I mean take some cherished photos of their little bundle of new baby smell joy :).

Now a lot of you may be thinking "Why do a maternity shoot when there really is no belly yet?" And I would answer like this.


Because just like every part in a woman's pregnancy it's a magical time, a special time, a time in your life where everything is new and exciting. A time that deserves to be captured.

Because if you didn't you may miss out on photos like these.

Tim is so attentive to Brandy. It was cold and a bit icy on our trip to Fernwood, but Tim was always there to hold her hand. To make sure she was safe. Tim and Brandy are affectionate in a way that makes me feel all is good in the world. It's not in a giddy, semi-newly wed couple kinda way. They are affectionate in a way that when he looks at her he's exactly where he is supposed to be, he's home. And when she looks at him she feels safe, secure, and adored. And when they stare at each other... they know there are other people around, but it doesn't matter.

The level of awesomeness they are gonna achieve as parents is off the charts. I mean, look at there lil boy Blazer already...

And if you've melted into a puddle on the floor from Blazer's cuteness, no need to pick yourself up, there's more...

Stayed tuned for my follow up session with Brandy and Tim in about 2 months.

Here is a lil sneak peak into Tim and Brandy's session. Brandy is a little under 20 weeks pregnant and is doing our Maternity Step Package. This package documents your pregnancy with a beginning, a middle, an end, and a follow up newborn session.

She dreamed of a wedding of elaborate elegance,
A church filled with family and friends.
She asked him what kind of a wedding he wished for,
He said for one that would make her his wife.
~Author Unknown

Ronnie and Libby will have such a wedding in May, and I am thrilled and honored to photograph their wedding.

Libby exudes grace, joy, love and beauty. And Ronnie smiled all while by her side.

They both grew up on farms and competed in fairs. At any point in there lives they could of met and gotten together. But they didn't, cause the time wasn't perfect. Now is their time, and the time is perfect.

And soon they will be come Husband and Wife.

When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.
~Nora Ephron, When Harry Met Sally

Congrats to you Ronnie and Libby!!! Thank you for allowing me to spend the afternoon with you, capturing your love.

Um excuse me Ronnie and Libby, but your love, it's showing.

More to come on Ronnie and Libby's A-MAZE-ING engagement shoot soon.

Simply {Thankful}

This is one of my first post in attempt to add a little personal touch to my blog. I think it's good for every potential client/friend to know more about me. Plus it gives me a chance to talk more about my favorite subject....ME!!
I kid, I kid.

But it's Thanksgiving. Everyone is stuffed and tucked into the beds and I am sitting here debating whether or not to brave the battle and go out on Black Friday or not. But I am also using my quiet time to reflect on why I am truly thankful.

I am thankful for her.

My oldest, my sassiest, my sweetest, my drama queen, my perfectionist, my drive, my love.

For this guy -the boy, not the bear :)-

My middle child, my snuggler, my quirky one, my demanding one, my adventurer, my mama's boy, my drive, my love.

For my lil one

my surprise, my smiler, my squishy leg-squishy cheek goodness, my wonderer, my drive, my love.

For him

my husband of 10 years, my wild card, my soap box stander, my spoiler, my children's father-a good father, my partner, my button pusher, my drive, my love.

I chose these photos of my family for certain reasons, and coincidentally enough they are all from our vacation this summer to Arkansas. My oldest I chose because she shines when alone. She is independent. She likes her alone time. But she also likes it when she knows her mama is just a few steps behind.

My middle child because he is the biggest goof ball I ever met. The things he says and does randomly astonishes me.

My youngest because point blank how hilarious is this photo of her? I love it. She is a smiler and a cuddle bug but she keeps me on my toes.

My hubby because he is mysterious (hince why you can't see his face). I have no idea from one day to the next what this man has planned because it always changes. But as in the picture he drives us, in one direction or the other he drives us. He takes us down paths and keeps his eyes always open to protect us. Even if I am yelling at him to slow down, pull over, or change the station.

This is at the very top of my Thankful list. What's on yours?

Simply {Boudoir}

Here is the first entry from the Boudoir Marathon that was held this past Sunday-and ooohhh it's a good one...

Meet Miss "K".

She is actually a friend of mine, like a friend of mine since I was 3!!!. From the time I first started talking about Boudoir pictures she was on board. She does not live around here but it's weird how the universe just kind of works together and just so happen on the day of the marathon she was gonna be in town.

I've always been jealous of her amazing skin.

Now Miss "K" is a tiny lil thing. I'm talking like 5"0 tiny...but in this picture her legs look like she is about 5"10

I like smiling-smiling's my favorite! <<<<<<

Thank you babe for doing such an awesome job. Good luck on your move and I hope you have a sleeper sofa because I am going to come visit you soon.
