You guysss! For the first time in like 5 years I am caught up on editing!!! 🙌🏻 You have no idea how great this feels. What to do now? I have so many plans...like purging my house, planning my new one, spending time with my kids and husband and going to bed before 11pm and not feeling guilty about any of it! I love taking pictures but the constant burden it has over me, that nagging when I’m doing anything else that I should be editing, it’s exhausting. So this year, I’m gonna shoot pictures when I wanna, probably just a special here and there, not a lot. I’m gonna try to make them fabulous and my turnaround should be quick cause did I mention...I’m caught up 😁😁😁! Thanks everyone for making this crazy hobby of mine turn into something that really has been amazing ❤️

Photocred of this beaut goes out to Kinslee Vandiver for helping me with a recent wedding and she caught this of me 😂

Thinking about last fall has me thinking about how important it is to get family pictures done with your parents. So I’ve decided to run a pre-Black Friday Big Family gift certificate sale! This will be the only way you’ll get a regular session from me next year as I’m pretty much planning to only do weddings and specials. See comments for details.

A little preview finally for this fabulous couple! They had amazing weather for November! Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Nelson!

Thank you to everyone who survived the cold and the wind with me today! I finished with our own pictures and then ran kids to practices and I am BEAT! I think I’ll go to bed now but I still have previews from last weekend to get up as well (I appreciate your patience)! Definitely decided I need an indoor location for Christmas pictures cause I am getting too old for that ha!

Ok mini’s Sunday are west of 3129 600th Road between Albany and new Hampton. I will drop a pin when I get there so everyone can find it. You’ll have to park along the highway so please pull off in the grass a little and be careful! I’m going to have to tweak some color in editing but I think we can make it work! Look for Dave’s big dark gray Chevy.

I have a 10:40 opening at this time!

So this was Dave's first run at a wedding video...we definitely learned a few things but overall for his first one I think he did pretty good (especially since he was running 2nd camera for me and shooting video)! Congrats again to Mr. & Mrs. Foster and thank you for being patient with us!

So I know I've been MIA and I had planned to do a special in May but unfortunately we've been taking care of my Mom's final dealings and trying to get her house cleaned out to get sold. Between that and my kid's practices and ball games starting I'm having a hard enough time just editing the weddings I have going so my plan at this time is for my next special to be in July when ball games are over. I apologize for that. The only actual sessions I'm taking are those remaining gift certificates hanging on from last year and a few sporadic super short sessions for those that hit me up at the right time and are willing to wait for their edits. I appreciate everyone checking with me and I'm sorry if I haven't gotten back to you very timely. Thanks & Have a great summer!

General information

Hello and let me first start by saying "thanks" for showing interest in my photography! I am an amateur photographer. I did not go to school for this, it's just something I enjoy doing. My husband, David, and I were high school sweethearts and we now have 3 beautiful girls. THAT'S why I got into this! People saw pictures I'd done of my girls and it's grown into this! It really took off last year and while I'm thankful for the business it does take a lot of my free time. I like to get editing done so you can view your pics as quickly as possible but I like to take my time and make sure you're going to be happy with them as well so my bookings this year will be on a first come first serve basis. My kids are small and I don't want to be so busy that I can't remember them being that way :) So contact me soon and we'll set something up that works for us both!!!
