Nov6This Bride and Groom will always hold a special place in my heart.  They were the first couple who gave me a shot at wedding photography (ha ha, bad joke, I know:).  Seriously, I am so grateful to have photographed their wedding and hope they are just the first of many Bride and Groom’s to come.

Here is their Day After Session.  And I’d say, happily ever after looks pretty sweet.

HeySugar_Post-HeaderThis little darling is one of my favorite people to photograph.  I’m blessed to call her parents dear friends and am thrilled to capture her as she grows.  This was her 4th Birthday shoot, which took place at Hey Sugar Candy Store.  Check them out, this store is a sweet treat for people of all ages!

Hello friends!

I’m so excited to welcome you to my new website.  This has been a labor of love and a long time coming!  In the weeks and months to come, it will continue to take shape as your images fill the pages and as I have the time to upload content from my original site.

But before I go forward, I want to use this space to dedicate the work of my hands back to The One who is The Giver of all good things.

Father, I thank you for the life you’ve given me.
For my precious family, for my husband who loves and supports me.
For my children, who have been my greatest inspiration and will always be my favorite subjects.
For saving my life, not once, but several times over, and for giving me a lasting and eternal hope.

Thank you for the friends and family who’ve shaped my life and continually encourage me to aim for excellence in all things.
Thank you for freedom.
Thanks for every step in my journey that has led me to this place.  I believe You, and agree, the best is yet to come.  Jerm. 29:11

Thank you for the work of my hands.  Thank you for the eyes to see.  Above all, may you be glorified in what I think, say, how I act and what I do.  Psalm 115:1.

Ultimately…

Jesus, may you be seen through my lens.

And in Jesus name, I commit my everything.

With deep gratitude,

Amen.
