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

Allison & Travis

I recently spent the day with Allison and Travis photographing their maternity session. They are such an adorable couple with an interesting story to tell.

In October 2003, Travis interviewed for a youth pastor position at the church Allison attended in Ohio. Allison was also working with the youth at that time. Travis was offered the position and moved to Ohio Thanksgiving weekend. Travis and Allison soon began dating, and he proposed in Jan 2004. They were married October 9, 2004.

After three surgeries, Allison was diagnosed with endometriosis in Dec. 2006. She eventually had to have her right ovary removed. They began invitro-fertilization in September 2008. The first cycle failed after her left ovary was over stimulated resulting in a torsion. This could have led to surgery where she could have lost her left ovary. They decided to take a few months off and restarted IVF in January 2009. Two eggs were implanted, and they found out on January 30th that they were expecting. Adelynn Gwynn Coffey is due October 15, 2009.

Travis is currently the youth minister at Drexel Baptist Church. He seems to be a big kid at heart, lol ! It was very evident during our photo session how excited they are about the pregnancy, and the birth of their little one. Allison states, "We give God all the praise, and Adelynn is truly a miracle baby". I am sure Adelynn is going to be spoiled rotten, lol !
