been awhile…

Well… the past year has , well… past- and I totally lost contact with my blog. Not sure I ever kept up with it as often as I should- but not a post since JUNE!
So much as happened and is going on- I’m going to try to post on a regular basis- about my business- and my life in general.


Ahhh- sweet baby Marble-

Little Livvy- she’s a fighter- right out of the gate. She gave us all a scare but she’s fantastic now! My daughter- Macy got to hold her and after the session I asked if she thought baby Livvy was cute. She said ” no.” “She’s AMAZINGLLY CUTE” – and she’s right!!


There are some days when you just don’t feel like going to work. Even if you love what you do- there are days, staying at home just sound much better. HOWEVER- I have learned when I feel this way- to go anyway. To ask God to show up. He always does. Without fail. RJ & Mandy- I loved photographing both of you yesterday. Can you believe NEITHER of these two have EVER had their photos taken? – well I’m assuming they’ve been in a few snap shots but never officially. They ROCKED IT! I have to admit Mandy- the way he looks at you girl- made my heart skip a beat:)- HOT-

“Why do photographers charge so much??”

Today I was reading through blogs and stumbled upon a post that said this:

“If you ask yourself why photographers “charge so much” for taking pictures…

They don’t get paid vacation, they don’t get paid sick days, they don’t get bonuses for outstanding performances nor for Christmas. They don’t have company health insurance plans nor do they qualify for unemployment. They pay for tons of insurance from liability to equipment and studio overhead. The pay for classes and mentoring to stay up with the newest technology and trends in the business.  They maintain thousands of dollars of equipment. They sacrifice their family on special days…so that they can bring happiness to others. Illness or personal affairs are not excuses for a bad photo. Next time you ask, remember that photographers are photographers because of the love of creating portraits, but that love doesn’t pay debts.”

I’ve said that to myself many times but to read it having been written by another photographer is great. We give up precious family time to create unforgettable moments in your lives.. because that is important to us-  for you to have amazing memories of your family.
