This blog follows both my personal and professional life, featuring my children, photography jobs, and of course, my love for animals. It's basically my own personal photo album combined with an information source for my clients. This site is very informal and allows me to share a little bit of my personality with you. :)

Happy Anniversary to Me!

So today is our third wedding anniversary and at many people's request, I am posting these.

It was a gorgeous day on our wedding day. It rained the day before and the day after but on our wedding day it was beautiful. Matt you are AMAZING! Thanks for all you do for me and the kiddos. We are so blessed to have you in our lives!

These were taken by our amazing photographer Jeff Hodges. He made our day so much fun!


One of the few shots we have of just the three of us together.
He is an amazing daddy! He loves Kenyon as if he were his own from the day they met!
Cass, Matt, Nash and me. Love you guys!!! Man was this a cheeser for me...lol

Key West, Florida - Part One

I've already had lots of requests for these pictures, so here is part one of Key West. They are in the order they were taken throughout our trip. The next post I do will be of the Butterfly Conservatory which I would highly, highly recommend. ENJOY!

People are all over the streets playing instruments or making things for money...

Perfect light...
Sunset Celebration at Mallory Square...

Sloppy Joes Bar is a famous bar...We didn't go there. Key West consists of mostly bars and pubs and being as that we're not drinkers, it made for an interesting nightlife experience... :)
The beautiful beach...

Matt enjoyed all of the lizards running around everywhere...

Another fun shot of the beach...
Stay tuned for more!

Do you remember Addison while she was in mommy's tummy? If not see it here.  What a cute, cute baby! I took these when she was about seven days old, but because mommy went past her due date, she was a big baby weighing in over nine pounds (and very alert too). ENJOY!
