• Hey You!

    I am an artist that seeks to bring back to life the innocent beauty that once when a child. I want to bring out the real you, the forgotten you, the beautiful you. I am a natural light, boutique photographer based in Northern Alabama specializing in senior and wedding portraiture.
    I am not your traditional type photographer, as my heart races with excitement to dig deeper into who you are as an individual. You will walk away with a flare of poetic imagery that screams your name. I look forward to meeting you, hugging you, and becoming friends.


4 years ago we may all remember that Michael Phelps won the most gold medals ever in Olympic history on August 17, 2008…but, this momma remembers while bringing my daughter into the world the very moment Phelps won that 8th gold medal…I remember very vividly the nurse telling me, he won!!!. And me breathing flames of fire back at her….I don’t care! 🙂 Abigail had a full head of dark brown hair, if you can believe that! She has kept me busy, kept me accountable with my actions, and has kept me loving life that much more.

Last year I began a series of questions that I will ask her every year at her birthday. Her answers always surprise me.

1. How old are you? 4

2. What is your favorite color? pink (I wonder when this will change, or if it will ever)

3. Who is your best friend? momma dear ( I promise I did not pinch her to tell me that) 😉

4. What do you want to be when your all grown up? Go to school (that’s a whole other blog post in its self)

5. What is your favorite movie? Curious George

6 What is your favorite book? The bible (love this)

7. What makes you happy? When I play outside at Nana and Papa’s house.

8. What makes you sad? When I get a spanking

9. What is your most favorite food to eat? chicken and fries

10. What is  your favorite song to sing? Gods not dead

11. What game do you like to play? CHASE!!

And here is to my daughters 4 yr angelic photoshoot. I just wanted white surrounding her, and for her big blue eyes to sparkle…and that is exactly what happened. And actually she was not feeling good this day when we did these pics, but she will do anything for ice cream. 🙂

For all who are wondering where her outfit is from– DollCake Clothing

This senior session was special–it was on her 18th birthday!!

And wow, did she blow me away with how comfortable she was in front of the camera.

Posing seniors has become my new obsession. They are always up to a challenge and wanting to stand out from the crowd. Oh seniors–I heart you.

Which are your favorite images and why?

    GORGEOUS photos and a very beautiful girl! I especially love the third one!ReplyCancel

When typing out each of your special names, my heart became tender and I  could not hold back tears–knowing God wanted me to pray for each of you by name…may you feel the love of the Lord this morning….

Before God formed you in the womb, He knew you…..you are unique

Put your name in the blank

“I praise you because _____________ is fearfully and wonderfully made; your words are wonderful,________ knows that full well. _______ frame was not hidden from you when _____ was made in the secret place. When _____ was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw _________unformed body, All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be”. Psalms 139:14-16

you have purpose

“Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised” Prov 31:30

you are treasured


and my heart is so torn on who to choose....but, it is feeling led to choose from the support Heather Watt Phillips was given during the past couple of days.....
Congrats, Heather!! Lets get your one day pampering shoot set up!!! :)
xoxo and much love to all that entered their name....I would still LOVE to work with you!!



Embrace it. Own it. Be it.

We as women sadly struggle looking in the mirror most days. Is this something we all struggle with atleast one season of life, or is it a constant battle everyday. I had never been one to struggle with my weight, until I went off to college and gained the…ahem…Freshman 20ish….a lot was muscle from 3 a days with being on the volleyball team. But, then, also midnight runs to Wendy’s did not help either. It was not until I was done with college I was able to get back to my normal weight, my “happy” weight. I got to a place in my life where I did not want the scale to own me…What I mean by owning me was, it would consume my thoughts. If I weighed myself that morning and I was a 1/2 pound heavier than the day before the rest of the day was ruined. Um, hello…who wants to live like that everyday? Not me! And I am sure not anyone…Once married, went to seminary—many chains were broken in Fort Worth, Tx while pursuing my Masters. And even though I do not get paid to be a professional counselor everyday, I am so much richer in the Lord with the woman He has molded me into. I cling to my Lord Jesus Christ for my significance, my beauty, and my purpose…

I say all of this because I want to spend a day with one unique lady created by God to remind her of the beauty that IS within…

Here are the details:

1. one female

2. Huntsville, Al area or close to my hometown in Mo (not unless you want to travel to me)

3. Needing a day of pampering with my amazing makeup artist and me behind the camera.

    I would love to win this contest! Being a mother of two energitic boys I find little alone time.. let alone time to pamper my self. I am getting married this year and would love to have a day of beauty that may help me decide on my make up and hair choices for the big day. Not to mention the “me time” I so despretly need! Your pictures are amazing…I hope some day I can come close to being that talented with my pictures.ReplyCancel

    I have always struggled with
    my weight and being comfortable in my own skin ever since I can
    remember. I was always one of the “big” girls in school, and I never
    thought I could be happy unless I was skinny. I’ve always found myself
    comparing myself to all the other “normal” girls in the world, and I
    finally realize, this is normal, this is me. Beauty is a lot thicker
    than skin deep. Being made fun of by my siblings and kids I went to
    school with was always a big issue with me. I am 21 years old and just
    recently found out I am expecting, it is a big surprise for me and the
    love of my life, but we are excited more than anything. I am about
    thirteen weeks along and all these new changes going on inside and
    outside of my body have been having me feel a little out of my element.
    I’m struggling with a lot of anxiety, depression, and self esteem issues
    and I think that a day like this is what I need to help me realize
    pregnancy is a beautiful thing. That my little bundle growing inside of
    me is supposed to be the happiest time of my life, not stressful. I
    would love to have a day of pampering, to relieve this stress and to
    show myself and others that beauty is all in yourself.ReplyCancel

    I feel like photo shoots are typically for families or couples or kids or seniors and it’s kind of weird to just seek that out just for myself as a single person. Honestly, I would love to win because it would be super fun to get done up and fussed over just for being me, without having to wait for some big occasion! ReplyCancel
