This is my great niece Lilly who just turned 2. What an angel! ok maybe not all the time. Miss Lilly was so well behaved, she loved all the chairs I had and tried each one. Happy Birthday sweet girl.

Graham family

I got a call from Tami (daughter/sister) months ago arranging this family picture. The family had not all been together since the passing of their father many years ago. Well this is right up my alley... capturing family memories. I feel that family pictures are the most prized possesion someone can own. Bringing people together for a family picture creates memories and then you have the print on your wall as a reminder.
Tami, thank you for calling me to help honor your family in this way. I hope you and your family will cherish the images for years to come.

Here is Tami with mom & her siblings.

The whole clan/ the ones who could make it that day.

Photo seminar

Yesterday I attended another photo seminar. The difference in this one was that it was an intimate group of approx 13 instead of 100. We sat around shared our fears and questions it was awesome. We then spent 2 hours photographing a couple of models, learning from each other... great experience. Now I must implement all the information I just learned.. its going to be fun!

Ryder- 9 mo

Look who is 9 months old. As I have said before I am so in love with this little man. He has eyes you could get "lost in", just think how handsome he will be as a man. Everytime he comes to visit the expressions he makes are so adorable. It has been a blast playing with him and I already look forward to seeing him again for his happy birthday session- what kind of trouble can we get in to?

Aleesa & Casey

On May 22nd these two became husband and wife.. it was the most perfect day!
Not too hot, the sunshine popped out now and then (a little too much at times) and this wedding was flawless. I was with the ladies in the early am for hair and make-up, it was amazing to me the calm that surrounded all of them. This is not something I get to witness very often on a wedding day. Nobody was freaking out or scrambling- the whole day continued in this fashion.. It was amazing!

Aleesa & Casey are a really neat couple, so in love and in tune with one each other. It was evident during the day and with the speeches given this couple is surrounded by a supportive group of family an friends. It was an absolute honor to photograph their wedding and be a part of such a wonderful day. I hope to work with these families again, it was a blast!
PS: Big thanks to Dennis from ProTek Photography for being my second photog that day and the lovely Brittany, my assistant.
