It’s HERE! The end of another year!
I was asked this year, ‘What is the best thing about being a photographer?’
For me, the feedback I get from my clients. I can’t tell you how many times I have gotten a sweet Facebook message, email, text, phone call, etc. where my client is raving about how their pictures made them feel. If I make them happy, I know I’ve done my job.
Happiness is contagious. I strive to capture that in every picture with every couple, newlywed, or family. When I set out to photograph a couple, I get to know, first and foremost, what makes them smile and laugh. Laughter relaxes people and in return I get genuinely happy smiles. Yes, there is always ‘posing’, but knowing how to teach your couple to do it themselves is key!
My favorite pictures are the candid, in-between, ones. They are the ones where people don’t really know I’m taking their picture and they are just being themselves – their true, beautiful selves. THEY are creating that wonderful image that they’ll cherish forever. I just helped them realize they could. A good photograph shows a subject’s smile, a GREAT photograph tells you how those subjects felt when they smiled.
My goal every day for my photography?
It’s best described by the Great Maya Angelou : “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

I cannot even begin to pick JUST ONE favorite moment from 2015.
I met so many new couples and families and you were ALL so wonderful to work with.
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for such a memorable year.
I started a posting my favorite images back in 2013.
And now, here are some of my favorites from 2015!
Happy 2016 to you and your family.
I pray you all find peace, happiness and ME as your photographer for the new year! 😉
