• 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.


Introducing miss Katy and mr Jonathan….that trendy couple every photographer dreams of taking pics of. 😉 Okay, I’ve been working everyone up for this E-session, and that is because it is full of history, full of details, full of romance, and full of……of…..well…..why don’t you look for yourself.

A little rewind….miss katy and I have history in church, and I sorta mentored her in some girl retreats at our church. It is crazy that she is old enough to be getting married…or maybe I am just getting old! Katy has grown up to be just as talented as her amazing musical parents. And I have become just as tickled about working with Jonathan. He and her are quite gems.

The history goes even further back from all the dreamy locations we shot at. We shot at Katy’s great grandmas old home, but the home no longer is there, but still took an old time looking photo in the area where the house stood. We also shot at her mothers home where she grew up. And collected antiques as we drove around to each location, as there was still stuff laying around in the old homes. It was a goldmine for a photographer who loves vintage props. All I know is that their wedding will be FULL of glorious details!!! Okay…..are you ready for this Esession?! On your mark, get set, GO! Oh, and please leave me some comments…they most def make my day, and feel free TO PIN your fav images.:)

The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.




Tomorrow is a new week….why not start fresh, and wipe off the dust and make this week a memorable one!!!

Do you feel like your being led down a path of destruction or a path of security? Who/what are you letting lead your life? Control your life? Live YOUR life? Why do we listen to the world wants, and not our own needs? Our main source of love should be right in front of our eyes, not in some imagination or make believe dream….open up your eyes, and let your husband lead you. He CHOSE you when he asked YOU to marry him…right? Maybe things have gotten a little foggy at times, but, spring time is a season of RENEWAL. When I am mentioning these things of spring….place your marriage into these words…..

Spring is a time for excitement, and warming up. Joy. and new beginnings.

Spring we are more positive. Spring we have to nurture our gardens (if we have one) water our grass to prepare for the dry and hot summer. And spring is a time for planting seeds for hopes to reap a harvest of joy and happiness.

Spring time we begin planning our summer activities.

Max Lucado says spring is a time of new beginnings, “new patterns of life, new ways of listening and expressing concern, and new ways of loving.”

Obviously we can not stay in spring forever, and we all know summer comes next….so how we will prepare for the steamy weather that can make us feel sticky and irritated? Sancus Real couldn’t put the words anymore perfect than this…….

I look around and see my wonderful life
Almost perfect from the outside
In picture frames, I see my beautiful wife
Always smiling, but on the inside

Oh, I can hear her saying

Lead me with strong hands
Stand up when I can’t
Don’t leave me hungry for love
Chasing dreams, but what about us?

Show me you’re willing to fight
That I’m still the love of your life
I know we call this our home
But I still feel alone

I see their faces, look in their innocent eyes
They’re just children from the outside
I’m working hard, I tell myself they’ll be fine
They’re independent, but on the inside

Oh, I can hear them saying

Lead me with strong hands
Stand up when I can’t
Don’t leave me hungry for love
Chasing dreams, what about us?

Show me you’re willing to fight
That I’m still the love of your life
I know we call this our home
But I still feel alone

So Father, give me the strength
To be everything I’m called to be
Oh Father, show me the way
To lead them

Won’t You lead me?

To lead them with strong hands
To stand up when they can’t
Don’t want to leave them hungry for love
Chasing things that I could give up

I’ll show them I’m willing to fight
And give them the best of my life
So we can call this our home
Lead me ’cause I can’t do this alone

Father, lead me ’cause I can’t do this alone



Husbands—lead your wives…….take her by the hand….look deep into her eyes, and pull her in……

I have been one lucky photographer with all the lovely couples I have been getting to work with lately…and I will admit, this couple is golden. We drove around grannies farm to find the perfect spots for pictures. But, meeting the cows were by far my favorite part! The cows seriously were like pets! Trai even got a sweet kiss….maybe a little jealousy going on….Kristen, you better watch you…you might have a cow as a pet. 😉
