This post is dedicated to my Mom. I have been blessed with the best and most supportive mom a girl could want. Although I’ve caught on to her infamous.. “I’m just going to run into Walmart real quick.. I’ll just be a minute” line but I’ve learned the problem is that people like her and she’s friends with many. She even somehow manages to make friends in a “quick” Walmart run with complete strangers.
She has blessed my siblings and me with a pretty awesome upbringing. (I do have to credit my dad as well but its not fathers day.. now is it?) She was a stay at home mom and would help out with our preschool classes as well. It wasn’t until she was pregnant with my sister that our church asked her to be in charge of the “playgroup” which turned into Little Lambs Preschool and she is still the Director. She also is my favorite assistant to help with my photo shoots and those of you have already had sessions with me, know how awesome she is with kids.
I know I don’t say this enough. Mom, I love you. Thank you for EVERYTHING you have done and continue to do for me. Happy Mothers Day. You’re the best.
Sometimes you just have to spend time with your best girlfriends and laugh a little… or a lot.
A known fact is that I’m a dog person. I grew up with with a dalmation and two german shepards and currently have a golden retriever/lab mutt! So its safe to say I’m not a cat person, mainly because I’m allergic. But my best friend Ali has her 16 week old cat named Gunther. I must say he might have changed my mind a little on being anti-cats.
Brittany and I have been friends since elementary school and we met Ali in high school on the cheerleading team (with a little help from MySpace). I thank God for these two. “The most important thing in life is your family. There are days you love them, and others you don’t, but in the end they’re the people you always come home to. Sometimes it’s the family you’re born into, and sometimes it’s the one you make for yourself.” ~ Sex and the City
I mean seriously… I told them I needed to test the light to make sure I could get a photo.. This is what they do.
In high school I was a cheerleader and my boyfriend was a basketball player… I know, I know. If only he was a football player we would have been so cliche! But going back to games brings back so many memories.
I think it’s safe to say I won’t be a sports photographer anytime soon… or ever.
In the end the Northern Patriots beat the Chopticon Braves and I got a Chick-fil-a sandwich out of it.. Yes, they sell chick-fil-a at the concession stands!! Woo Go Northern!
My sister, Sarah, started her freshman year of high school this year and had her first homecoming dance!
Why wasn’t I this pretty at 14?
I love taking photographs when I have a gorgeous subject, location and lighting!
