My Photo
I find it hard to believe that seven years have passed since I made the decision to pursue my dream of becoming a photographer. Even though it has been challenging, I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute. I have had some amazing clients to photograph, and have made some lifelong friends. When the photos session is over, I can't wait to get home and upload the photos to see what I was able to capture. I love the finished product. A few years ago, I began blogging but have fallen behind in this area. I promise I will try to dedicate more time to my blog, so others can get to know the wonderful clients I am photographing. Many of them have interesting stories to tell. I also think it is interesting to see how couples met, and of their plans for the future. I am available most days to photograph you and your loved ones. Message or call for an appointment. View more on my website at

Lydia & Braelynn

I recently had a photo session with a beautiful Mom, Lydia, and her 10 month old little girl, Braelynn. We began at a park where Braelynn seemed to enjoy smiling for the camera. We then shot some of my favorite pictures of Braelynn. She was dressed in a pink and brown tutu, and standing in a wicker basket that I brought along. She was so cute in that tutu.

The girls then changed into blue jeans and one of my favorite things, beautiful red shoes. I love red high heels (not on me, but on others, lol). I am always excited when I can photograph someone in red heels. Lydia's friends, Anna and Brian, came along to help take care of Braelynn, while Lydia and I wandered off to take pictures. We took some great photos in the backyard of a beautiful home in town. I don't think the owners were home at the time, but it's so hard to resist when you find a beautiful place to take pictures. So don't be surprised if you one day look out, and see a woman wandering around in your backyard taking pictures of someone. It will probably be me, lol.

It began to get dark on us, but we were able to shoot a few at Morganton Federal Savings and Loan. This is a gorgeous historical building in town, and the yard is absolutely beautiful. I would like to go back at a later date to take more of the girls, before it gets too dark. Lydia's poses here definitely drew the attention of those driving by, as several people blew horns at her.

Thanks Lydia for allowing me to take photos of you and Braelynn. I had an amazing time with you both. The love you share is very evident in all of the photos we took.

What a Cute Little Smile !
