Gayton Baptist Church

  • Jazz Nativity 2012

and I were engaged and trying to figure out where we were supposed to live and what church we were supposed to get involved in, I had one hope….. PLEASE dear Lord let whatever church we find have great music!! That’s a big deal to me. I just wanted to go to a church where contemporary music was played and oh my goodness did He deliver! Gayton’s music on Sunday morning is wonderful… but when I went to my first Jazz Nativity practice back in 2010… I was BLOWN AWAY. I immediately called my parents and insisted that they needed to get their tickets NOW.  Well, they purchased tickets…

December 2012

  • The Snapshot

I have to give credit to my new friend Sarah who was a part of last month’s coaching session. She took this picture of me and I think it’s hilarious because that’s how I feel today!! It’s a good day but gosh, how in the world am I going to get all of my STUFF done!!! ah!! This is the down season… but lets face it, the “down” season is when you have to prepare for the busy season. The BIG projects that have been left undone for WAY too long need to get accomplished on weeks like these!! Ahem*…. the BRIDAL GUIDE. You guys probably think that the “Bridal Guide” project is just something  I’m making up because it’s literally been in the works for what?

Shooting Accessories

  • Ask Anything

TEAL….. it’s kinda obvious around here. And I love jewelry! So naturally, I really love TEAL JEWELRY! I have more teal necklaces than I do pairs of socks…. I think that’s actually true! It’s obsessive but I do wear them daily! Jewelry and accessories are a girl’s best friend if you can’t afford diamonds. Please, who needs diamonds when you can get a knockoff bubble necklace from ebay?! Accessories “make” the outfit and complete the “look”.  So when I’m shooting a bride and groom, I make a point to shoot the details. Boutonniere, bouquet, necklace, dress detail, earrings etc, etc.
