Taking photos of these two is always fun and there are plenty of laughs to go around. That was the case last night when we met for their maternity session. I know some of you will remember about two years ago when I put out a model call for a couple that hadn’t been married long. Kasey responded and I first got to know them then. I was excited for the both of them when I found out that they were going to have a baby.
The weather wasn’t bad, especially in the shade. One might even call it pleasant. Where I live there are plenty of fields so I suggested that first. After, we headed to the lake. I knew I wanted to get some sunset shots so let me say, that trying to get to the lake and making sure we didn’t miss it was more stressful than a wedding. Seriously. But in the end we got them! And I love them!
Jacob and Kasey your baby boy is so blessed to have you as parents and you are going to be fantastic parents. Congrats you guys!
When I can bring natural light and laughs together, it’s always going to be a great combination.
Pure sweetness. I didn’t even Jacob any instruction here. I looked up and this was happening. It’s absolutely true love!
I love images that are not posed.
Seriously! I looooove Baby Toms!!
The view at Lake Monticello was breath taking!
They are so ready and excited for their baby boy, Sailor James to be here. Only a few weeks left.
Isn’t Kasey an absolutely gorgeous momma?

There are times in life when we get to know people when we are young. Then you lose track of them and then later in your life, they are back. For some people it’s family and for others, it’s friends. That’s the way it was with Annslie and I. She and I first met when were around eight. Then, because of moving around with my family, I lost track of her. Around ten or eleven years ago, my husband and I moved back to where I am from. Probably five years after that, I saw her across the room in a restaurant, but I didn’t say hi because I didn’t think she would remember me. I have a bad habit of doing that. Then a couple of years after that, she was at a mutual friends house and she did remember me. She is a blessing and I’m blessed to know her.
A little while ago I was on scrolling on Facebook and came across Annslie’s post where she was announcing her engagement. I was very excited for her. I hadn’t gotten to meet Matthew at that point, but I figured, I would soon. Then I got asked to shoot the wedding. When I met him, I figured out that he was the perfect match for her. Annslie is a very outgoing person and Matthew is quiet and reserved. The saying, opposites attract, proved to be true. I asked Annslie how she felt when they met and she said, she knew she loved him when she didn’t want to spend another minute without him. Now that, I’d say, is true love.
Annslie and Matthew, thank you for letting me be apart of these life changing events. I’m so excited and happy for both of you. I’m glad that you have both found your one and only.
Til next time.

This time of the year is probably my busiest and the request I get the most is for family sessions. I love taking advantage of that request. It’s my opportunity to show a family how great they look. To show how much they love one another and a lot of times, it’s a chance for mom and dad to get some photos of just them, after we take group photos. Some of them haven’t had any done since they got married. This family is close to my heart. Jeremy and I happen to be first cousins. We’ve known each other since we were babies. We’ve kind of gotten to watch each other grow up. And because we are family, I’ve gotten to watch their daughter, Jayda, grow also. She is beautiful and sassy and a great mix of her mom and dad. But it seems like yesterday that I found out that Jeremy and Jessica were going to have a baby. It amazes me how fast time flies
Jeremy and Jessica, your family is beautiful and I’m grateful that you asked me to be your photographer. I love you guys!
Til next time.

Her colors were in the shades of pink and cream. His suit was a great hue of gray and nicely pressed. Her dress was Vera Wang and her make-up was perfect. She was beautiful and he was handsome. All the makings for the perfect day. These are the details describing Bradley and Kelly’s wedding. They couldn’t wait to say “I do”. And it was right around the corner.
The day went off without a hitch. The men in their suits and the girls in their matching dresses. Everything was perfect. With her hair pinned up just right and her dress flowing out around her, Kelly was stunning and she was ready to walk down that aisle. And at the end, was her prince charming. Bradley waited patiently as each parent and attendant walked out first. The doors shut and the congregation stood. Everyone seemed to hold their breath as they waited for the doors to open. But no one, more than Bradley. Finally he saw his bride walking towards him and all was right. They said their “I do’s”, kissed, and danced out to “Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I’m yours”. It couldn’t have gone any better.
These two have a love between them that is perfect and they were made for each other. It has been a pleasure to watch them grow as a couple and to see how they are striving to keep God as the center of their marriage. Bradley and Kelly, I can’t thank you enough for the opportunity to capture your milestones with my camera. Couples like you are the reason I started doing what I do. With all my heart, thank you!
I am so glad you guys decided to share a life together. Til next time.
Do Well and Do Good,
