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

Jennifer & Willie

Jennifer and Willie met at Freedom High School during their freshmen year. They began dating in 2006 during their sophomore year. On Nov. 10, 2008, he proposed to her on Burkemont Mountain.

Jennifer is attending WPCC pursuing her Associates of Art Degree in Early Childhood Education. Willie will begin WPCC in the fall to pursue an Associates degree in Criminal Justice and begin the BLET program as well. They plan to marry in April of 2011.

I recently had the pleasure of doing a photo session with Jennifer and Willie. We first took some pictures near Catawba River and Riverside. We then moved to a field near the Carbon Plant. I had seen this field many times when driving by, and always wanted to take photos there. Jennifer was so excited when she found out it was a daisy field. We were up to our knees in weeds and kept sinking due to the ground being wet from the rain, but we shot anyway. I love how these photos turned out.

Willie had originally asked to have photos taken near his home with his horse, Acer. I was so glad we decided to do this, because when we arrived, I spotted an old blue dump truck in the field across the road. Needless to say, I was so excited! I had been looking for one of these old trucks for quite a while. The photos we took there were some of my favorites from the session. I would have loved to have spent another hour shooting there, but darkness overtook us.

Once the session was over, I talked with them for nearly an hour. They are such a sweet couple, and it is very evident how much they care for each other. I have included a few of my favorite photos from their session. To view additional photos from their session, visit, choose Featured Galleries, and choose their folder.

Best Wishes, Jennifer and Willie in your Life Together !
