Just kidding… I have a lot of other side work to do like album designs, client Christmas gifts, packaging, and monthly duties. But this workload doesn’t compare to the […]

Happy Monday!!! I know Mondays aren’t always the happiest since it’s the first day of the work week, but there’s still a reason to be grateful for going into another week. 🙂 Today started on a high note photographing a sunrise session with a SUPER sweet couple!! Although, waking up at 4:45 a.m. wasn’t the […]

Wow. Last week was a whirlwind of a week! When I was putting together this blog post, I honestly had to think twice that these events did in fact happen the past seven days. I sure hope the next 65 days fly by just as fast as this past week because that means Christmas festivities […]

TODAY IS THE DAY. After months of hard work, my new blog and website are LIVE!!!! Of course, though, I cannot take the credit for the hard work!
