We’ve had so much going on for the past few months that we’ve neglected posting. Now, I’ve got so many things to post I wasn’t sure where to start. I started looking at these photos from a portrait session in Tallahassee from right before Christmas and knew I had to share these first. I know it was a few months ago, but, it was a ton of fun. Plus, there is a German shepherd in a sweater vest and even an emu named Kevin!
See for yourself. 😉
Sue is a former co-worker and she invited me to photograph her awesome family before her daughter Tori left for the military. I am so glad that she did because we had a ton of fun photographing this adorable family!
Kevin didn’t want anything to do with being photographed. Bill tried valiantly to lure him to the far end of the enclosure, but Kevin teased us with his presence before running off into the brush. Emus are funny creatures!
Recently we did family photos for some amazing people that we also get to call friends. One of the mantras we live by is to keep things simple. We use this approach for many things, including photography. This mantra is why you’ll never see any of our images that are over-crowded with props. People are beautiful and are usually the only subjects needed for great photos. In this case, a simple blanket and lots of fun were the key ingredients for this awesome session. We took them at our home in Ochlocknee, Georgia with beautiful south Georgia fall scenery as the backdrop. So, enjoy these images of a few of our favorite people and their two kids!
Who doesn’t love cute little babies? India and Alex are definitely ready to meet their bundle of joy. My husband Buck came along and helped me out on this shoot and we had a ton of fun. India and Alex knew the exact spot they wanted the pictures shot at and this dirt road just put the cherry on top of this session. Also, if their personalities are any indication this baby is going to be so much fun!
Congratulations you guys and thank you for letting us share these moments with you.
We’re back, again. I’m going to be totally honest in this post, and I hope you expect nothing less from me.
So, this whole starting up a business thing is pretty darn difficult. I knew that it wouldn’t be an easy feat from the beginning, but, really? I mean, come on. Life kicks you right in the teeth sometimes, and it took a good reality check for me to realize just how much work this would be. Hopefully, you’ve read my first blog and hopefully you caught my enthusiasm in it. Well, that determination and enthusiasm kind of sloughed off when I wasn’t immediately able to quit my 9-5 job and follow my dreams full time. Ouch. Major burn.
That whole fear thing I talked about in that first blog post is really putting me to the test. It is by God’s grace that I return to you, ready to tackle this thing once again. This verse is what I’m clinging to in this crazy process, and I hope that whatever you are going through that it will also encourage and strengthen you.
By His divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. 2 Peter 1:3
It’s so hard to trust that things are going to work out or that people will even like what you do. But, that’s not my problem. I’m going to do my best and let God do the rest. He’s already given me everything I need to accomplish whatever may come in this life.
I’m a pretty lucky person. I’ve had the privilege of photographing my nephew, John Hogan, even before he was born. To top that off, my sister-in-law is a natural beauty with long blonde hair and pretty blue eyes. I got to take some photos of them in a field owned by a friend of the family. I was pretty excited about it because this field grows this amazing red grass between plantings! Here are just a few photos I got from that session so you can see why I’m so lucky. 😉
