On a beautiful day, in a small little town, at a small little chapel, I had the pleasure of seeing a young woman say she does, and a young man say he will….whole heartedly. I saw him look at her and promise and her gaze at him and believe…and it was a blessing. We then set out to create and keep these few minutes in an ordinary day for some become heirloom photographs. Again I spent time with a hometown cutie and his gorgeous bride playing in fields and around the beautiful little venue Capps Cove. Kelly and Jacob, thank you for making my ordinary Tuesday unusual and special.
When I struck out making a business out of my photography I knew that I wanted to grow my business in my own community. I wanted to be the go to pro in my town and I wanted to be able to see my clients in the local shops and be able to watch them and their lives grow. It was a strange thought process for some but I felt, and still feel, if your going to be the best be the best with the folks around you who will keep you honestToday one such relationship was displayed in that thinking. I have known this couple since they were in Jr. High and High School, I know Chase’s family and never pass Sue without a full catchup session. When I think of Lillie I think about a football game where she and her 3 buddies were covered head to toe in paint….by choice…to support her High School football team…and though she did not know it then her future…her love..Chase.Its a sweet love story and I am blessed beyond measure to have a place in their family history as the photographer who will be there when they say their “I Do’s” in May. I am so fond of these two and I am proud of the young adults they have become together!! God Bless you guys and look forward to our Oxford escapades in May!!!
Today I spent the best day of 2014, (daylight savings time change day) with a beautiful, photogenic, kind, talented spirit…Lauren. She is a pianist and studies at a local Fine Arts School. We have dodged some bad, cold weather only to be treated to extra sunshine and beautiful warm weather on this March day. Most sessions I banter back and forth trying to get to know my client and what they like but strangely enough when Lauren and I got together it was so easy and laid back we skipped all the small talk….we just hung out and created some fantastic photographs. Now that might sound like a brag but although I have to know my craft it is equally as important that my subject is relaxed and takes directions well…and she fit the bill and it was like we already knew each other, it made for a truly a wonderful day at work. Thank you Lauren and your friend Sabrina ( lol wink wink LOL)
Then she was a bride all giddy to get married and start her life with her handsome groom Will. Today she is a a Mom to be…then and now still just as beautiful, kind and giddy. Thank you so much for asking me to come to your baby shower and I look forward to adding some more photography to your family history…and I am honored to be a part. You and “the girls” always make me feel like family and I am blessed with your friendship! Can’t wait to meet Tobias in person….I wish it was now…but prob not as much as you do LOL
