The Book & Bean….now open!





The Book & Bean Coffee Shop & Book Store is now open. It is a wonderful place to meet other mommy friends and your kiddo’s. They have a children’s play area. Nice comfy couches nestled in front of a cozy fireplace…to hang out with your friends. They have also started Storybook Hour every Friday morning at 10:30. Owners, Deborah & Hunter Bried are such amazing people…gotta meet them…you will just love them ๐Ÿ™‚ I am so fortunate for meeting such wonderful people ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh, and they also have a conference room available for meetings, bible study, get togethers…. Stop by and see the store and my work on display ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s a Boy! Wahoo!


Well, the suspense is finally over. Yesterday we had the ultrasound done and there was no hiding going on whatsoever! It is definitely a boy. We are so excited! I think Marty was glowing when we left…and his phone wouldn’t stop beeping with all of the text messages coming into his phone. L is also soooooo very happy. She has said all along that she wanted a brother.

I have already done some shopping for baby boy clothes. Stopped at Old Navy on my way home from the doctors last night and got some awesome deals on clothes for our new little baby. It was so cute this morning….I came upstairs this morning after working on my puter for a little while and L had laid out all of the clothes all over the living room. She is so excited ๐Ÿ™‚ we have been wahooooing all morning. God is good!

Happy New Year!!!

Well, I just wanted to wish everyone a happy new year…and to thank all my clients for such an awesome 2007!!! It has been such an amazing year! I am so grateful for all of you…more than words can say. It has been so awesome to have had the opportunity to capture a few moments in your life….I appreciate the opportunity so much. I look so forward to 2008!

Just an FYI…coming soon. There is an AWESOME new Coffee Shop/Children’s Book Store opening on January 11th. It is located next door to Hand’s On Art on Government between Appleway and Kathleen. Some of my work will be on display through out the store. Check it out. I will take some pictures of the store as soon as they are open…. :o)

Happy New Year to all of my friends, family and photog buddies. Hope you have a GREAT 2008…Love ya all ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh….to be young again :)

So, I haven’t been very good about posting sneak peaks lately. I have been working like crazy trying to get proofs uploaded, orders processed, etc. I am still trying desperately to get caught up. I was just working on some proofs and had to post this one set of pics. Oh, to be YOUNG again ๐Ÿ™‚ So sweet.

Thanks again, everyone, for being so patient. Off to work again ๐Ÿ™‚

Back To Work :)

Ok…so, I just want to thank everyone…all of my friends and clients for your prayers, meals, support, etc… I appreciate it so much…more than words can say.
I am back to work this week. I am so sorry for the delay in proofs, orders, etc…

Thanks again…I’ll be getting proofs done and uploaded as fast as I can ๐Ÿ™‚

A Rough Weekend…

I just wanted to say thank you to all of my clients for being so understanding and patient. You are all so awesome. I have had to recently cancel all of my appointments for the weekend and the coming week. My Dad had another heart attack last week and has been in the hospital waiting to have triple bypass heart surgery. He hasn’t been in very good health lately. So, I ask for prayer for him and his doctors this week while going through his surgery.

I haven’t been able to work at all on orders and uploading proofs this last week. I will try to work some on pictures this week (orders that are still out and trying to get proofs uploaded to the site). Thanks so much for understanding. Take care and God bless.

I really needed a laugh :)

Ok…so I have been CRAZY busy taking pics, working on pics this last month. Whewww. I have got one more Senior portraits to finish and back on editing family pics. Anyhow, I took some children’s portraits last night and got such a kick on one of the pics. I asked the little girl to look up at me…..well, here you go. LOL!!! Thank you for giving me a giggle, I really needed it ๐Ÿ™‚ Jodi, your children are priceless!







Well, we pretty much lived at the City Park this weekend ๐Ÿ™‚ Started setting up bright and early on Friday morning at 6:00 am. It was a wonderful success. Lots of fun…seeing old friends, meeting new people, new clients, and just hanging out people-watching ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks so much to my friends and family that helped out…Mom, Ashley, Theresa, Zach, Hope, Bill, Debbie, Kristin, Chris, Kimmer, Amy and of course my wonderful hubby and Lauren ๐Ÿ™‚ I couldn’t of done it without you all! Thank you sooooo much.
PS…Marty took the 2nd pic and the bottom 3….very cool
