“Y’all, I almost started crying. Why’d I tear up?! I am just SO darn lucky that y’all step in front of my camera and allow me to capture these moments for you. Your smiles – your laughs! … Even if you think you look like a fool in the silliest photo from your gallery, I hope it also brings a smile to your face as a reminder of all the reasons you love this life you get to live. Even on the days when life is harder to love… even if there are more of those days than joyful ones… you’ll have these photos that showcase a happy day, a happy hour, or even just a happy minute – and I’m so honored to be here for it. …”
“I’m not naturally introspective – it takes a lot of intention for me to sit down, process through present-day life, and reflect on days, weeks, and months past – but I’ve found that doing so helps me honor all that God has done and is doing in my life, in my family, and in this little business of mine! I do some monthly reflecting through writing out my newsletter updates, but now that 2020 is rolling into town, it’s time to do a little summary of 2019. Actually, it’s not little. It’s long. But most of it is photos! Peruse at your own pace!”
“High school seniors, college students, brides & grooms – and yes, even babies… Even if they have nothing else in common, my clients tend to get a little silly, and I love it. It’s usually not prompted and happens just because we’re having fun. We had SO much fun in 2014 that all the photos featured in this second installation of my Joyful & Silly series are from that year alone! Enjoy!”
This is a job that allows me to connect with lots of different people, from all walks of life, who may otherwise have nothing in common except that I am their photographer – and I LOVE it. There is, however, one other thing I’ve noticed about the people who step in front of my camera…
THEY GET SILLY.
WE GET SILLY.
WE DON’T TAKE OURSELVES TOO SERIOUSLY.
“Our communication these days is so digitized with texting, social media, and email that it’s a rare treasure to hold a piece of mail from a friend in my hands. I also think about my older relatives who don’t use computers – they never see my photos or updates online! Maybe I need to order some of these for myself… Keep reading to see if the cards we offer are the right fit for you!”
“Today I get to share Jessica & Ben with you! They are the first couple to call me their ‘family photographer,’ and my immediate response to that was, ‘I want more of that!’ It warms my heart to serve people over time with photography, capture their biggest and most everyday moments alike, and see them grow. It’s an extra special treat when I visit them and see their photo art all around their home!…”
“Today we continue our Throwback Thursday series (yep, on Friday), because I have more photos to share with you from the early years! If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, check out yesterday’s post, containing my earliest photography work! …”
“I’ve taken a lot of photos over the years, but this is a brand new website and this may be your first time learning about my business! That means iiit’s (drumroll please)… catchup time! Every Thursday this summer (through August!) I’m going to be sharing the work I’ve done over the past couple years…”
