the time i started a website

there are many things i am pretty good at {or like to think i am}. but dealing with technology is far from one of them. i have been a photographer since 2014 and have been avoiding this process since the beginning. dreading having to learn {read: understand} how to keep it up and running. two weeks ago, i decided enough was enough. it was time to face my fears. and today is that day, i started a website. i did not do this alone, a very patient friend sat with me in a coffee house; answering my obnoxious and obvious questions. but here it is and i am so excited you all are here. ❤

it has been hot here… and if it isn’t hot, it’s raining. on the day of this shoot there was about three hours of neither; we were met with mild temperatures and beautiful overcast skies as the storm rolled in. it was a photography goldmine. not to mention the beautiful faces i was asked to capture that day.

happy six months sweet baby h.

winter weddings.

early this year i shot two weddings both with temperatures below freezing. what an added challenge, not being able to spend hours outside. both weddings were absolutely breathtaking and such a blast.

not to mention that both of these weddings were for people who work day in and day out to better our community. including; a school counselor, a corrections officer, a probation agent, and a man who has served our country in the military. i have nothing but respect for these four and their dedication to helping people.

 

J&C

brrr it was cold, but what a fun crew. a beautiful and sweet ceremony, followed by a fun reception, ending with a great surprise for all the guests in attendance! ❤

also little shout out to my ladies, i have two amazing second shooters that are crucial to my wedding days.

 

JC&B

when you know, you know. this beautiful bride contacted me two weeks before this day, not because they still hadn’t found a photographer, because they just decided to plan there wedding in two weeks. what a big job, but let me tell you, it was such a perfect day. they were surrounded by their closest friends and family, at an amazing location. to say this day was intimate is an understatement. everything about it was simple and so elegant. they both were glowing as they devoted their lives to each other and also made vows to their loved ones. and even ended all those important words with a fist bump. the day was filled with so much laughter and love.

who needs cake when you have cheese curds. 😉

let me start by saying, what an honor it is to be asked to capture life’s most important moments. but when it is people you hold near and dear to your heart; it is so much more meaningful. these are great friends of ours, who choose me to share in this particular life event. and on a beautiful day in this beautiful city, he got down on one knee, asking this beautiful women to be his forever. {it is awfully hard to see if you are in focus if you are tearing up, in case you were wondering.}

we then went on a wonderful tour of that side of town, stopping for photo ops, often. and eventually ended up at a huge gathering of friends and family to celebrate the betrothed couple. it was a day full of so much love and joy, you can see it on everyones faces. so much love to this gorgeous couple and congrats again. ❤

seriously you guys look at this face. don’t you want to smooch those cheeks. this little miracle man was such a joy to shoot. i had the pleasure of praying for him and his health since he was in his mommy’s belly. God answers prayers, and also made this adorable face.

thank you for hanging out with me little man, and for jamming to “if your happy and you know it,” with me. DSC_5060DSC_5084DSC_5105DSC_5236DSC_5274

Nikki and Jeff

maternity shoots are the best. there is something about a new mommy and daddy documenting such an amazing part of their lives.

this {soon-to-be} mommy and daddy, are just the sweetest. and their little lady is so very lucky, and i can not wait to meet her. ❤DSC_9105DSC_9128DSC_9170DSC_9323DSC_9372DSC_9503DSC_9531
