Avyn & Andrea....

There are few words to say about gorgeous precious Avyn! She is such a sweet little girl. I can't wait until she starts running around. Avyn and Andrea received a gift certificate to Lanae Photography, and I'm so excited that they did. We had so much fun, and seeing as how Avyn is the first grandbaby....the entire family joined in on the session. They are such a great group of people, and I have really enjoyed getting to know them. I look forward to many, many more sessions of these girls. Andrea did a terrific job with Avyn's outfits too!!! Very creative and vibrant! I absolutely LOVE vibrant! Thanks girls!

The Arnold's.....

This gorgeous family has been my client from day one!!!! I have absolutely enjoyed watching Jack grow up and change. Ashley is one of my best friends from high school, and she married Noel, whom I knew in high school as well. One aspect that I love about my job is meeting new people through my photography, but I am also so excited when I get to spend quality time with my close friends while capturing their special moments with their family. It's important.

My photography style isn't always "perfect", but I would pass up what most would consider the best shot for one that is capturing a special moment. It's so much more important, and it's so much more like real life. Jack gives me plenty of moments. He has become my buddy, and he loves to give me high five. Now if I could only make it to where he will share his goldfish with me........

Thank you Noel, Ash and Jack for continuing to share you family with me.

Look for this family coming up again soon. I shot their 4-generation family pictures. Ashley also designs the cutest cakes. Her website is coming soon! I will keep you posted!

Nick and Lana...Always and Forever!

Nick and Lana live in China. I corresponded with Lana through phone or email, and the time difference was problematic at times. Needless to say, we had a wonderful time getting to know each other before we ever met. Upon finally meeting Lana, I was just struck by how calm and put together she was. I'm not sure how I would handle planning an entire wedding from so far away. She handled all last minute glitches with ease and finesse!!!! I really loved getting to know her.

Their wedding was the first one to be held at the new First Baptist Falls Creek cabin, and it was was absolutely gorgeous! The scenery left me awestruck, and I love how absolutely simple it is.
Nick and Lana are back in China! They are an absolutely amazing couple, and I love how easy going their relationship was. I wish them the best, and I can't wait for another United States visit so Lana and I can catch up in person.

Thank you Nick and Lana for allowing me to share this day with you and your family. I look forward to seeing you again, and I wish you the best in your long future together!

A Beautiful Mommy.....

I had the hardest time trying to decide which images of Brooke to display. We had a terrific shoot on a beautiful day. She is just gorgeous, and I'm absolutely excited that I got to shoot her maternity pics. I know she will be a terrific Mommy, and I can't wait to see Baby Boy. I took pictures of Brooke when she was in high school for her many pageants and portfolio. I just can't believe how time flies and how much she has grown up. Thank you Brooke for sharing your family with me!
