Greg & Lauren Engagement- Lynchburg, Virginia

This was a special session and I was so happy this bride-to-be aka my sister called on me to capture this moment. They took me out to the downtown area where they will be wed. Right next to their venue is a lovely walking trail. This allowed me to get the best of both worlds, the city and nature!

I am now counting down the days! Congratulations Lauren & Greg.

When cakes go wrong..

When it comes to birthday parties I really like to go all out and make sure everything is perfect but somehow the ideas in my head do not always play out. For my girls’ second birthday we waited a few weeks past so we could celebrate with my family. I traveled to my sister’s home to host the party and make the cake. I always have to make my kids cake from scratch, not because I am a show off (well maybe just a little) but because I like to bake any chance I get. The plan was a pastel colored layer cake from a Martha Stewart recipe. Well I doubled the recipe and tried to make it all in one batch without an electric mixer. My Husband was so kind to help work this horrible recipe. My cake batter turned into pizza dough consistency and my poor husband was trying to beat egg whites by hand. Hours later I had to throw out $20+ worth of cake supplies. Did I cry? You bet! I went to bed planning on buying a store cake in the morning. The next day I woke up to my husband baking a box cake for me. Such a sweetie. He saved me! I was able to decorate and have it ready for the party in the afternoon and my girls had a blast!

Easter With My Family

Time passes by so fast in my home but I enjoy mostly every minute of it.  As you know, one of my favorite subjects to photograph is my family. Who doesn’t love to go back and see how they have changed. Here is a little look into my family, and thanks to my Husband, an actual picture of me. Happy Easter.

Grand Opening!

     First off..Welcome! I am so excited to announce the grand opening of my website and blog. The whole process has been fun and frustrating at the same time as I strove to learn the in and outs of web design. By no means is this perfect, but it is just a start and I hope over time to make improvements.

     My Blog will be a place for you to see the latest on what I have been photographing. In the New Year I hope to work outside the box of just my family. So if you are looking for some photos taken of you or your family, don’t hesitate to contact me. I would love to build up my portfolio.

I have teeth!
