Holly and Crew

I had the privilege of photographing beautiful three week old Crew, and his smokin hot mama Holly. Aren't they gorgeous? They're both so photogenic. Congratulations Holly, Shawn, and big sisters Avree and Bella.

I. am. me.

I heard an awesome piece of sound advice yesterday. "Pay no mind to what everyone else is doing, or saying, and JUST BE YOURSELF." Regardless of what everyone else is doing, I. am. me. And that's what makes me different, and what sets me apart. There just isn't another me out there. I'll continue to do what I love, and hope that I make a difference along the way.

My handsome, loving, sweet, supportive husband Brant. You'll probably hear a lot about him on this blog.

I should have known...

...when I was 7 years old directing Drake Busath on where I should sit, and what shots would look good for my photo-shoot.

...when I would wander mall photography studios marveling at the photos

...when I would look at photography websites to admire their work whenever I was bored

...when Brant got me my first kodak camera for Christmas

...when wherever we have traveled, I am lagging behind capturing everything I possibly can with my camera

...when back in the day at friend's weddings, I would try to capture the best photos possible for them with those disposable cameras they'd leave on the tables.

...when the first thing I would grab if my house was burning down is my photos

...when Brant got me my Canon SLR, my heart skipped a beat as I heard the shutter click

...when I would spend hours and hours studying photography

...when the more photos I took, the more and more excited inside I became, and the more right it felt...
