The Grandsons

This Grandmother got an awesome mother’s day gift… portraits of her 4 wonderful grandsons. I have taken pictures of the oldest boys since they were small and the little boys since they were babies so it is always a treat to photograph them. I was in a little shock about how tall the oldest is. Time has got to slow down a bit…these boys are growing up so fast and they are all so sweet. Thanks y’all for a wonderful session!

Back for His 4 Month Portraits

This little guy came in for his four-month portraits and he was so cute! He is starting to look so much like his big brother that was also on my baby plan. Such a precious little guy!

Celebrating Her First Birthday

We always love first birthday celebrations at the studio. First, we started with a few portraits with her big brother and then some inside and outside the studio. Last of all, we pulled out the birthday cupcake and she LOVED it. I was just glad that I could shoot fast enough to get some of it in the portraits!

You May Have Been Hearing Things About Me On the Internet

This past weekend, someone started spreading some very untrue and awful things about me and my business on Facebook and I would like to set the record straight that what you heard is not true. I can not even express how much it has hurt me that this was done and it breaks my heart that someone would be so malicious. You may be wondering why I did not comment on things right away. I spoke with my attorney as soon as it started happening and she suggested I remained quiet until legal papers could be served after the holiday weekend which has now happened. On her advice, I will not speak much about this online at this time. But, I will say this. We would never spray Clorox Bleach on any blanket or sheet and then lay a baby down on it. Clorox bleach could not only be harmful to a baby, but it would also ruin my clothing, blankets, infant beanbag, floors, infant clothing, props, and anything else nearby. Also, one thing all newborn photographers know is that newborns hate to lay on anything wet and they often immediately wake up as soon as a blanket gets soiled. When a newborn uses the bathroom and wets a blanket during a shoot, we have to change to a dry blanket so that the baby will continue to sleep through the session. There is so much more I would love to say, but I will comply with what my attorney has suggested and say no more at this time.

I would like to thank all of the friends, clients and others (many of whom I have never even met) who have sent me numerous supportive messages and have spoken up in my defense on Facebook. I can’t even tell you how much of a blessing this has been to me and I just want you to know that I really appreciate it. I also want to thank so many of my clients for not only being there in support, but for already booking new sessions with me.

And last but certainly not least, I want to thank God as without Him, I could never get through this or any of the trials I go through in life. He is my steady rock and with His steadfast love I know that my life is in His hands and He is in control. Many people have sent me Bible verses that I have read and reread again and again. My favorite was Psalm 64 that was sent to me by a good friend that is currently battling terminal cancer. I have reread this passage so many times and when I am down I try to remember those words and also the fact that someone battling something so much worse than me has such a positive attitude in life and it is very apparent by her strength and peace that as she says, God has this. He really does and I just need to remember that.

The Smiley One

We have a new baby planner and she has the biggest smile ever! She was such a happy and content baby at 5 months old and she was in the best mood for her session. How could you ever not smile after seeing a smile like this little one’s?
