I literally have no words for our wedding day. I could write about anyone else’s wedding day, but mine? Nearly impossible. 🙂 However, I’ll try. Andrew and I – after being engaged for 6 months – finally got married at my parents’ home in Asheville, North Carolina. (Read our relationship story here!) It wasn’t as […]

I literally cannot believe it is time for this post already! I’m not sure if I want 2019 to be over yet. This has been the best year I’ve ever had since starting my business in 2016 and God has blessed it beyond what I thought was possible! Back when 2019 was just beginning, I […]

Running your own business is a serious thing. However, I’m a firm believer in not taking yourself too seriously. One of my favorite things is looking at all the behind-the-scenes shots I have a t the end of the year. Sometimes I manage to be really awkward! If you think life as a photographer is […]

This December was the last family vacation with just the four of us. I can’t believe it! Thinking about that is so strange…but so wonderful that next year we’ll be adding Andrew. Still, definitely something to process. We’ve not had our family pictures done in well over a year, and so with our last family […]

Oh my goodness, I am so excited to finally share this post (and these pictures)! Beware – it’s going to be very long. 😀  Most of you had no idea I was in a relationship, which was my intent – I was planning to surprise everyone if I got engaged! I am very, VERY happy […]

I am so excited to share these pictures at long-last! My best friend Allison, aided and abetted by my mother and her family, came down for my birthday on the eighth and surprised me! I was so excited, and of course, called up my friend Amy to see if she could come and do a […]

Dear Momma, Someone once told me that he never realized growing up that his mom worked two jobs; she’d go to work and then come home, get dinner, do laundry, and clean. I didn’t realize it either, but you didn’t work two jobs. It was more like six. I don’t think I’ve met anyone who […]

Dear Allison, It’s been a little over a year since we became best friends, and I’m still a little overwhelmed and perplexed as to why God would give me such a wonderful person as a best friend. I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone quite like you. You are such an amazing person. You’re always […]

When Amy and I got together to do our headshot swap, of course she took some pictures of me. Which was fabulous! I needed an update, per usual. We had such a great time and I love the pictures she took of me! I’m sure you’ll agree that she’s quite talented. Enjoy a few of […]

Today my great-grandmother turns 90! We celebrated her birthday last week with a party my mom and I had planned for many weeks in advance. We spent so much time and effort in making a special party for her and she loved it. In fact, she cried the first half hour! I’m so excited to […]
