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!

I can’t believe

that 2015 is almost over! It seriously feels like it just began!! The last few days of the year are often my favorite because I’m able to really sit and reflect on all that God has allowed me to accomplish this year! Even when I feel like I didn’t do nearly as much as I wanted to or wasn’t as successful as I would have hoped, looking back over my favorite images of the year overwhelms me with peace and gives me such a heart of gratefulness.

If I am incredibly honest, I am SO proud of myself!! When I look through these images, I see so much growth in myself, so much adventure and a more defined style. Not being afraid to say no to every session that came my way gave me the chance to really focus on who I am as a photographer and capture the magic I really wanted to. I seriously don’t think I could have asked for a more beautiful year of portraits. These moments in time were incredible and I cherish my time with every single woman and couple I had the honor of photographing this year!! Ok, ok…enough talking! Enjoy this beautiful recap of an incredible year of portraits!!!
