“Be truly glad. There is wonderful JOY ahead!.” 1 Peter 1:6 (NLT) I read these words last August soon after I left the bank and pursued photography full time.

More than just offering something to pose on rather than grass, quilts have a deeper meaning for me. Not only do they had lots of bright colors, but they had a piece of history and heart. When I first started out, my dear grandma passed away. Between that and a few other storms I was […]

The first snow of 2015 was a little different from this year. Sam was only 3 months old so there wasn’t much playing in the snow. This year? Well, he couldn’t wait to get out in the snow! When I went into his room to get him up, I opened up the window to show […]

“DO NOT LEAVE YOUR HOME UNLESS IT IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY. THE TENNESSEE VALLEY IS EXPECTING 7-9 INCHES OF SNOW. Y’ALL, IT’S GONNA BE BAD”. If you’re in the East Tennessee area, you probably heard this over and over again on Tuesday. However, I was convinced around 430, after I got home from work, that we […]

Coffee + 1 Photographer + 1 Branding Graphic Designer (both female) + 2 hours of chatting + a few tears: a new logo When I met Kate Moore, I was instantly blessed. She bought me coffee and we talked about life, business, and Jesus. I knew she’d be the lady to give my business an […]

Sister: silly, sweet, and a wonderful baker “SWEET DREAMS ARE MADE OF THESE/ WHO AM I TO DISAGREE?” Ben shakes his head in utter exhaustion as my sister and I sing Eurythmics in the worst tone and voice possible. I yell at her for pestering me from the back seat, just like old times. And […]
