why senior photography?

THIS IS YOUR YEAR! LET'S MAKE YOUR SENIOR MEMORIES AS FUN AND UNIQUE AS YOU ARE!

I grew up in a world of people telling me that I wasn't enough.
I was told that I would never be a good mother- I couldn't make it on my own.
I was told that I wasn't enough, good enough, strong enough, smart enough.
As teens we tend to believe the lies that people tell us. 

That needs to change.

This is the gift that I hope to give to young girls and guys. 
YOU are BEAUTIFUL/HANDSOME.
YOU are SMART.
YOU are STRONG.
YOU ARE ENOUGH. 

This is YOUR year!
Let's make your memories as fun and unique as you are!

Jesus, coffee (ICED LATTE PLEASE), and my large family, usually in that order.
I have seven children, ranging in ages from 14-23. Yes, I miss when they were little and thought that I was their whole  world.

Dark chocolate, a glass of Moscato, the beach, any beach... seriously- where's the closest beach?

I lived in Texas for 23 years before finally making my way back to the east coast.

I LOOOOVE standing on the shore and feeling the enormousness of the ocean, and realizing that God knows exactly how many grains of sand are on that beach, and that even though I am tiny in the scope of the universe, He still treasures me and loves me FIERCELY.

Traveling and exploring new places
Mountains, canyons, mom and pop restaurants in out of the way places, and of course... beaches.

In fact, I have THOUSANDS of pictures from my explorations just waiting for me to edit and share with you guys. 

Yes, I make them take selfies everywhere we go LOL


-Music. I listen to everything from Jazz to Rock- depends on my mood.
- I would rather listen to music than watch TV any day.
- My favorite artists include
Dove Tree, and Outlier which are local Texas bands that I saw perform;
Danny Gokey (you'll have to ask for the story on that one);
Crowder,
Bon Jovi,
John Maher,
and sooo many more. Seriously just depends on the day and my mood.


- A good book. When I was younger I used to escape into any book that I could get my hands on, or phone book, or cereal box... Yes I had a problem.
To Kill a Mockingbird is my FAVE! That reminds me, it's time to read it again.

I love historical fiction, or a good thriller. 

Favorite Authors:
Tedd Decker, Frank Peretti, Harper Lee, Angela Hunt, Karen Kingsbury, Henry David Thoreau.

-Watching a senior's face light up when they see their images for the first time!

-Seeing confidence bloom in a senior who needs someone to believe in them.

Seeing the emotion and tears when moms see their son's and daughter's personality shine through in the images.
