A Country Senior Shoot

  • Meet Crossley

even believe that I’m writing this right now. I can’t believe this beautiful girl is a SENIOR!! Starting tomorrow, Crossley is starting the LAST year of her high school career and I couldn’t be more excited for her! When Michael and I first moved to Richmond, Crossley was one of the youngest girls in the youth group. She was so full of life and energy and I was immediately drawn to her! I’ve been drawn to her every since. She’s just one of those girls that brings joy to your life whenever you’re around her! I have loved getting to know this amazing girl over the years. She loves so deeply and cares about people so much.

Bloopers and Mini Highlight Reel

  • Alaska | Part 3

thing about vacation is that I take A LOT of pictures… a lot. And whenever there are a lot of pictures being taken, there are always some bloopers! I don’t know about you but I always love a few great bloopers!! The annoying thing is that a lot of the out-takes are of ME! There is good reason why I’m on the over side of the camera most of the time!! Today’s post is very humbling… and hilarious at the same time! As funny as the bloopers are, the true treasure of this post is at the very bottom! I attempted to throw together a few clips of our trip!

Denali & The Sound

  • Alaska | Part 2

was one thing we had been told to do in Alaska by my parents. They had recently visited Alaska and they advised us to try our best to take a tour of Denali by plane!! So we did! Andrew drove us to Talkeetna and we signed up for a plane ride!! In a tiny little plane! It actually wasn’t THAT small. It could have been much smaller! … But when you’re used to commercial sized planes, this was a whole other world!! It was amazing! The views were incredible and even though McKinley was covered with a cloud, it was still SO worth the small fortune that it cost. Some experiences are worth an extra splurge and we’re really thankful that we decided to make this happen!!
