“Jennifer found out about Light Creative on Yelp, and I’m so glad she reached out to me about doing their courthouse wedding photography at the Orange County Courthouse in Hillsborough! She was pregnant at the time, and they enjoyed working with me so much that they decided to invest in the New Life Collection to capture their sweet baby’s first year of life! We’ve had a maternity session and a newborn session since then (!!), and I can hardly wait to share all these precious moments with you. …”
“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!”
“This week I got to look through all my photos from 2018, and – surprise, surprise – there was lots of joy & silliness to be found within last year’s sessions, too! You see, even though I photograph people from all different walks of life, I’ve found that my clients all tend to have one thing in common: THEY GET SILLY. WE GET SILLY. WE DON’T TAKE OURSELVES TOO SERIOUSLY. And this is basically my favorite thing. I love capturing joy for people, and it’s even more fun when they throw a funny face out there and just have a good ol’ time with the moments we share together!”
“Amidst the heartwarming wedding days, newborn snuggles, and excitement of graduating, it just seems that I attract people who aren’t afraid to throw a funny face out there or let loose a little. I LOVE IT! Here are some silly and particularly joyful moments from 2015, 2016, and 2017!”
“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!”
“None of the wonderful things that happened in 2018 would have been possible without you all (well, and God). I can’t express how much joy I get in my heart from capturing your everyday moments and special events, and it blesses me multiple times over knowing that you get joy from what we create together, too. THANK YOU for a 2018 full of hitting the ground running, building momentum, and doing this darn thing.“
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.
“The biggest difference between the albums and photo books is the quality of the pages. While the photo book’s pages have pretty amazing quality already, albums step it up a notch with extra thick pages that don’t bend at all when you turn the page. Because the pages are thicker and even more sturdy, the album is solid and prominent as it sits on your coffee table or within your bookshelf! Printed on high-quality premium lustre paper, your photos have a slight sheen and their vibrant colors hold true beautifully. …”
“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!…”
