Butterflies the Size of Elephants

Crouched in the bushes, still as a statue, taking slow quiet breaths I wait. The ground damp beneath my knees slowly soaks into my jeans. In the mugginess, a mosquito buzzes in my ear.

"They'll be here in just a moment." 

In the silence of what feels like an hour, the noises around me are amplified. There is a duck quacking and splashing in the creek behind me, its feathers rustling against the water; a chorus of crickets are combating the bullfrog's solo from a few feet away. A child whizzes by on roller skates as I hold especially still trying not to scare him.

My camera is camouflaged with leaves carefully wrapped around my lens as I attempt to meld into my surroundings with my dark green and black attire. I'm feeling pretty stealthy as each unsuspecting person walks by; a big happy golden retreiver the only suspicious passerby.

Then, they round the corner.

She has no idea he's about to propose! Butterflies the size of elephants start throwing themselves around in my stomach - this is exciting!! 

They're so adorable sitting on the bench with her head on his shoulder. You can tell he's trying not to be nervous. After a few minutes they rise and walk to the gazebo. Her heels click against the cement as she looks around. Trudging through the dewey grass towards the front of the gazebo, he tries to nonchalantly ask her to come join him on the steps - he remembers the perfect spot and angle we discussed! A soft light falls through thick clouds and it is perfect.

With gentle words he begins to unveil his intent. I cannot hear him exactly but anyone could read her face like a story; unsuspecting first and then a flood of joyful tears. He bends down on one knee, places the ring on her finger and a glow reaches from her smile to her toes as she wraps him up in a kiss. MAGICAL!

They are the cutest, with happy tears running down her face and an excited grin on his - Clark & Amber are engaged!!

An Open Letter to the Fiercest of Women

I realized today that I haven't posted a blog in awhile. Actually, it's been in the back of my brain but my weeks have been passing like days recently and I haven't taken a moment for a breath in quite a bit. 

It is just this feeling that makes me reflect on two things. First, I've been realizing that somehow in this whirlwind of portrait experiences, weddings, family celebrations and, well, life, my zeal for serving you lovely people hasn't been blunted. In fact, it's been amplified!

That leads me to the next biggest part of my reflection : you! This year especially the community of women with whom I interact has grown tremendously and not just in number. I've formed wonderful friendships with some of you and deep unspoken loyalty to making sure you ladies, ALL of you ladies, know just how precious you are. You are already some of the kindest, most generous, fierce and also gentle women I know. You ladies surmount mountains that would daunt most of us, push through tragedies and create your own victories. You are a collection of courageous mothers, humanitarians, inspiring artists and passionate entrepreneurs. I must tell you, you all are an inspiration and it is my pleasure to know and photograph you.

Thank you for bringing me into your lives. Thank you for baring your souls, sharing your victories and being true. Each of you are blessings. It is my sincerest hope that you look at yourself on a daily basis and know just how incredible you are.

- With Love and Loyalty -

Celebrate : Elizabeth

This darling shared her birthday with us! We were absolutely overjoyed to have Elizabeth book a session on her birthday to celebrate one more year of her life, her growth as a woman and her beauty.

During our many conversations, Elizabeth expressed how much she valued having beautiful portraits taken of her at this stage in her life. After recently losing her grandmother with whom she was very close, Elizabeth wanted to create something special for her loved ones to hold and an experience she would cherish.

In celebration of not only Elizabeth's life but her grandmother's, Elizabeth wore treasured pieces of her grandmother's jewelry, which had been collected over a lifetime. This thoughtful gesture made her portrait experience even more sentimental.

We were incredibly excited to share Elizabeth's portraits with her and are now excited to be sharing these gems with you. Enjoy!

Celebrate 2015

As this year comes to a close and we realize how the days flew by in a flash, we have taken a moment to look at just how amazing this year has been.

We celebrated growing our team with several incredible women, the opportunity to make some studio renovations and adding additional services and products to spoil you, our clients, the way you really deserve.

Most of all, we have celebrated each of you who are not just our clients but, in many cases, our friends. We relished in your triumphs, celebrated your personal growth, cried together in joy and in remembrance. We pushed each other, encouraged each other and even raised a glass or two. In all, we celebrated life together.

Thank you so much for sharing the preciousness of your lives with us! If only "thank you" would suffice. It has been an honor and delight. We can't wait to share our lives again next year!

Happy New Year!

I was super excited to receive Kristin & Turner's wedding invitation in the mail this week and I'm loving all the time and effort they are putting into their details. They've done every bit of planning to create a memorable celebration for and with their guests.

Thank you, Kristin and Turner for sending me an invitation! I'm honored for you to have included me. You are so sweet!
