Happy first day of summer! (I think we were all ready for some cooler temperatures!) I've been getting lots of requests for Summer Mini Sessions so I'm happy to say that something is in the works - and it's going to be good!!!
This little gem is my cousin, so I may be partial when I say how beautiful I think she is!
This Magnolia piece is one of my favorite newborn props!  Rumor has it that Chip and Joanna Gaines will welcome their fifth child sometime this summer.  I wonder if they would trade me Magnolia props in exchange for newborn pics πŸ€”πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‰ #proposition
Sweet summertime βš“οΈ
I couldn't let this day slip by without wishing Happy Fathers Day to my wonderful husband!  He amazes me everyday at how much he loves all three of us, and there's no way I would be able to raise two boys without him. He may be a teacher by trade, but as a parent, he has no idea how much I learn from him daily.  Happy Fathers Day, Joe!  We love you so much πŸ’™
This couple got married on the beach in Punta Cana a couple of weeks ago and I shot their perfect little reception last night @balducci_vineyards .  Augusta sunsets are the best! β˜€οΈ
It's #nationalphotographyday and it's rare that I post a photo of myself alone! (I would much rather post a stunning bride or baby in a bucket!) However, I was lost on what photo to post for such a day. I think back to 2009, when I began taking pictures as a side job, when I taught high school, and never would have believed someone if they told me that my next career would solely be photography. Every experience since, good and bad, has been a lesson learned. I'm being honest when I say this - running this business is one of the hardest and most time-consuming challenges I have ever faced. It's something that I have poured countless hours, a lot of money and my whole heart into!  I'm so lucky to have all of you, following and supporting this career.  I'm so grateful for the friendships I’ve made - for those of you who email and message me, just to ask how my family is! How amazing is that? Thank you to those of you who continue to allow me to capture your memories! πŸ’•
I'm finishing up Rachel and Austin's wedding photos, and I love how much emotion was captured throughout this day.  These two have the most sincere and loving family and friends, in fact, it was hard to tell their friends and family apart!  Wedding photography is a hard job, and is hardly over once we pack up at the reception, but the reward of the moments captured throughout the day is so fulfilling.  This wedding marked 174 for Janelle and I. (Before we each became moms, we booked 25 weddings a year......and yes, we are fully aware that's about half of the year spent working Saturdays!) People often comment that we have probably "seen it all," but the truth is, every wedding we shoot still gets us as excited as the first one!
Sweet dreams ⭐️
Miss Sunny Grace sure knows how to accessorize.  Pearls and polka dots never go out of style!
You don't find your passion, you create it πŸ’œπŸ“·
