Spring Family Session: Savannah Rapids

This sweet mom reached out to me over Facebook a couple of weeks ago asking if I could do a quick session so that she would have some good photos to bring to the son they are adopting from overseas. I was so happy we could work something out between both of our busy schedules because they were an absolute delight to photograph and I am so super happy with how their pictures turned out.


Are you thinking about maybe one day in the not too distant future that you might like to be able to photograph a session like this? Well I've written a series of classes just for you which I will be launching in the summer and fall. Interested? Click here to fill out a super-quick survey.

Family Sessions: Bolyards

One of God's sweetest blessings in my life at the moment is the new friends I've made at our new church and at the top of that list is this sweet lady right here. Jessica writes a blog full of encouragement for the weary soul. When I mentioned on Facebook that I was offering to take some family photographs this sweet lady was quick to ask me to photograph her family. They were so easy to work with - their love for each other shines through in these images.

Recognize this location? It's the same one that I used for this session here.

Photography classes - online and in person

Best photography class EVER!! So much fun :) thank you @anjelface84 for hosting us.

This moment - it was an amazing moment for me. It was my very first in person photography class at my best friend's house. I'd been teaching online classes for a few years but after awhile it just didn't fit into my life. I thought that maybe this was something I would never do again. Life has been crazy insane this past year. Growing our family has been a beautiful difficult season. Homeschooling has been the best, hardest thing I have ever done. But the seasons are changing...

Que a drumroll and all of the glitter cannons. 

I am teaching photography classes again!!!

I am taking the rest of the school year to re-write my materials then I'll be offering classes to mamas and I'll also be launching a series of classes for kids. I will be hosting classes online and also in-person here in the Augusta, Georgia area in the summer.

In order to best serve you I have put together a quick little survey to find out what would be the most helpful to you. Here is the link to the survey. Thanks so much!! I can't wait to meet you soon.

Digital Christmas Cards!

I don't know about you but I am terrible at sending Christmas cards. Every year I think I am going to do it and every year, about this time of the year, I realize that it's just not going to happen. This year  maybe I'll get around to sending out some holiday cards after all now that I know about with Greenvelope, an online design store that is changing the way families everywhere send holiday invitations, greeting cards and notes.

Each design is customizable to fit your personality. Once you’re finished, send your holiday greetings or party invite with one click, instantly delivering your season’s greetings. Also, because it is all online it is a more frugal option and better for the environment. But who am I kidding, I just like this because it's perfect for procrastinators!

One of the things I was impressed with about Greenvelope are the gorgeous professional designs. As a photographer there is nothing more annoying to me than to see beautiful family photos in a poorly designed card. No worries with this site. All of the designs are terrific.

Here are just a few of my favorite card designs.

Can’t settle on just one holiday photo? (I never can.) The Very Merry grid design template is perfect for you. Feature up to 4 pictures with this photo collage design.

If you’re hosting a holiday party, Greenvelope has many design templates for you to choose from. The Ugly Sweater Party Invitation is especially cute.

And in case you want to cover all of your bases here is the  Happy Everything design - perfect for families that celebrate or don't celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah or another holiday. There are also greeting cards that would be perfect for sending to business contacts.

One of the things you might be wondering about is price - you can send cards to up to 10 people for free in Trial Mode if you want to send more just purchase a monthly or yearly subscription based on how many invitations, announcements and digital greeting cards you think you'll be sending. Packages start at about $20.

HOLIDAY BONUS! Set up an online photo gallery that recaps the meaningful moments that made up your year to be included with your greeting at no additional cost.

Start designing your seasonal cards here, or browse all holiday designs here.

Fall Family sessions: Maxwells

When your best friend asks you to take pictures of her family - there is just nothing better. These beautiful people feel practically like family. This was a new location for me to do a "real" session and I am in love with this spot! It is so beautiful. We also took some shots at a nearby church - because a beautiful brick wall is worth the drive!

Mini-Session: November

This month I have learned something about myself, or maybe re-learned something I had forgotten - I love photography. Especially family sessions. This session was especially fun. Their sweet baby was at the perfect age to make a session a little tricky but we got a few smiles! This beautiful family was super easy and made me remember how much I love doing these sessions.
