Bethany this, Bethany that. By the time I finally met Bethany at my best friend’s Zoom Bible study during quarantine, I felt like I already knew her. For the past two years since my bestie, Allison, had been going to ECC, their church, I’d heard Bethany’s name pop up time and time again. It appeared […]

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 […]

Y’all, meet Eric, Kristen, and Luna. Eric reached out back in September to see if we could get a family shoot scheduled, and so we did – but we got rained out. But we rolled with it. Once we finally met up at the Botanical Gardens last week, the leaves had started changing, and it […]

One of the greatest compliments that a photographer can receive is being asked by another photographer to take their pictures. And I have personal experience with this: I’m one of the pickiest, most perfectionist people when it comes to photos of my clients. I finagle and finesse and do my very best to make sure […]
