Welcome to my blog!

I believe that if you love doing something, it's impossible to fail. I have always loved taking pictures but never would have guessed that I could have this much fun doing it. Take a look around, get comfortable, and let me know what you think....

“Another sunrise, another new beginning.”

Share the excitement with the expecting mother in your life with a maternity portrait session. We suggest the seven month mark for this session, as the baby bump is defined, yet cute. This is also a great time, because there is less scrambling to get ready for the baby and more time to relax and show off that pregnancy glow.

That due date is going to come sooner than you think, so call to reserve your session today.

Whatever gift you choose, make sure to include a heartfelt card—that always means the most. :)

Halloween Crafts!

Milk Carton Haunted Houses
Use any size of carton, from an individual sized lunch carton to a half gallon. Cut out a door and some windows and cover entirely with black construction paper. Add some cute halloween stickers and glitter, maybe some candy corn and pumpkins, and you have an adorable decoration that your kids can help create. For an extra spooky touch, add an LED tealight. Create one house, or an entire village!

Boa Bats
These would make great porch decorations! Add glitter and use different colors of construction paper for a more playful effect.

Printable Pumpkin Carving Stencils
My favorite ones are the goofy faces!

Tie Dye Halloween
Create a fun tee shirt, onesie, pajamas or a trick or treat bag with this adorable craft.
