We hope you grab some coffee (or a diet coke, in my case) and enjoy viewing our latest work, browsing resources for photographers, and getting a little peek into our life!Β  Read more...

Apple Pies and Photography

  • The First Response

You’re probably thinking “This is going to be her weirdest post to date!” … and you may be right. You know you’re strange when you’re helping your sister bake an apple pie for Thanksgiving and simultaneously thinking of blog post ideas. Before I get into to it, let me explain that EVERYTHING about this situation was strange. Anyone in my family would tell you that Katelyn and baking are two things that don’t go together!

Weekend Recap of Jazz Nativity

  • We did It!!!

I can’t believe it’s over!! I look forward to this every single year and now today the wait has started all over again. Jazz Nativity is such a massive production for our church and I’m so proud of all of the hard work and energy that goes into making this masterpiece! So many volunteers give up their precious holiday time to serve and pitch in wherever they can. It’s amazing!!!!! We had so many friends come this year and I hope they come EVERY year!! In my opinion, this is the BEST way to kick off the Christmas season. Hands down! I mean, watching Elf is a close second… just kidding. This show will blow you away.
