  • Christmas Card Portraits

ever stopped to think about ALL THE THINGS we strive to accomplish at Christmas time?!! We literally pack as much STUFF as we possibly can into one month and it’s kind of crazy when you really sit down and consider ALL that goes into the Christmas season! Now, I’m not complaining! I LOVE THIS SEASON! If I could sit in my living room with a glowy tree all year long, I would! I’m tempted to leave our decor up until February!! However, during my late night errands and christmas card addressing, I realized that what we’re accomplishing during Christmas is REALLY impressive!!

A Country Plantation Portrait Session

  • Meet Megan

may be “slower”… but we still had some things to get done… one of those things was shooting Megan’s senior portraits! We have been trying to get these done for months and months and I’m so glad that we had a day where our schedules aligned and the weather was wonderful! Chilly… but wonderful! The light was glowy and soft. We met at a local plantation home in our home town for her shoot and I loved spending some time together.

WPPI 2014

  • Big News & a Confession

a very EXCITING and yet somewhat interesting post to write this morning. Before I announce some big news, I need to explain a little bit about my first few years in the photography industry. When I was first starting out… like, 8 months into my business, my friend Jessie gave me a call. She called and said “I have a CRAZY idea! … Lets go to Vegas this year and attend WPPI!!”. I was so new but from the very beginning of my business I guess you could call me a “Go-getter”. The thought of “Well I’m too new to go to the nation’s largest photography conference” NEVER crossed my mind. Call me naive or call me crazy… I was trying to grow and I wanted to grow FAST.
