Scotland Family Portraits

  • Akins & Powers Family

Today I’m sharing some beautiful family portraits that we took of our friends in Scotland! We dedicated one night to portraits, and we had to move FAST because there were so many of us, and because there were MIDGIES everywhere! (Scottish mosquitos that are vicious!!) However, despite the rush, the cold, and the bug bites, I think it’s safe to say that the views and the colors and the final product made up for all of that!! It was gorgeous! We now have our family portraits on display in our foyer, and I’m obsessed with them!!!!

Everly’s Seventh Month

I’ll spare you the “How is she SEVEN months old” lines. Lets face it, it just flies by. I find myself trying so hard to focus on little things that I love that she does. Like I almost want to freeze these little moments and never move forward, because I love them so much! But like my Nanny says, you don’t want to wish for that, because the fact that she’s growing and changing so fast means that she’s healthy. Speaking of being healthy, Evy’s health this past month has taken us on an emotional rollercoaster.

How To Save A Workaholic’s Neck!

  • Ask Anything

It’s hard to admit…. but all of these years of hunching over a computer have caught up with me. I honestly don’t think that it was JUST leaning over the laptop or iPhone that made things as bad as they are today… I think my pace of life and holding a heavy camera are to blame as well! The truth is, being a wedding photographer is HARD on your body!! I found out two years ago that I had a reversed neck curve. Eek! If you don’t know what that means, I’ll tell you this…. it’s NOT GOOD.
