I've been keeping journals since I was in the 3rd grade and I'm so glad to share some of my most intimate life moments with you here!  Here, you'll find inspirational stories of clients, my journey as a wife and first-time mother and other adventures I have that makes my world go 'round. So please, sit back, grab some coffee ( or my personal favorite, a good ol' fashioned Arnold Palmer!) and enjoy exploring my latest work! Thanks for stopping by and happy reading!

welcome to my

journal!

MR. RELTON + MRS. KAREN | A BOLD AND SPICY SEASONED LOVE SESSION

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said multiple times: Being around seasoned women just does something to my soul. Sitting at their feet…listening to their stories…absorbing their wisdom…I honestly can’t get enough of it. But being around seasoned couples? Couples like the Hyltons? Y’all…that ELEVATES. MY. ENTIRE. LIFE. These adorable lovebirds are my friend Felicia‘s parents. […]
