I just realized I never posted these pictures, and I totally wanted to show them off. We took these right after Thanksgiving for their Christmas card photos. (Notice Lilly in the Santa suit... So adorable!) I've shot this family several times, and it's always so adventurous and fun. It's just going to get more exciting as Lilly gets older!

This photo of Lilly and her dad is one of my favorites. I love how the sunlight is just peeking over her shoulder. This family always allows me to take more creative shots - which I love- and we always seem to like the same shots.
If you are like the Hudsons and enjoy more adventurous and creative shots, please let me know. I try to make sure everyone gets the pictures they want, and I love to work with people and their preferences. The more I know about you, the better pictures I can get that showcase your personality!
Thanks, Hudson family!

People find beauty in strange things. I know people who are able to go to dumpsters and find treasures. They just happen to see trash differently than the person who threw it away. I'm not one of those people.

But I do find beauty in things that are sometimes a little off the mark. And I love how my camera lets me show others the beauty I see.

I remember when this house didn't look like this. I remember when someone had it kept nicely. I remember when people lived in this house. Now it's clearly alone, left to deteriorate.
I have fallen in love with this house, just the way it is.

Dream it! Live it! Capture it!


Can you believe it's already that time of year again?! I'm in the middle of senior picture time, and we are running some terrific specials. Be sure to check them out at, and I'm going to go ahead and post them on the blog, too.

I got to take Keith's senior pictures recently, and if anyone earned good pictures, he did! It was SO cold, but you would never be able to tell by looking at the results. Keith was so easy-going and easy to work with. I really appreciated his great attitude!

Good luck in your future, Keith! Congratulations!

My stripes

A good friend of mine is doing her nursery with a little bit of zebra flair, so I had to create this piece for her. Isn't he so cute? And it is so different than all the normal nursery art that you will find. I shot it in a ttv style, through the viewfinder. I just love how it turned out. I really enjoy taking pictures of people, but it's also so fun to capture an object in a new and interesting way.
