The sun peeked through the green trees in Hoover, AL. We weren’t expecting it to show off for us for Kelsey + Josiah’s engagement session with Leigh Ann Goodin Photography. The weather had been cloudy, and rain threatened us all week. It even brought in a cold front in the middle of what had otherwise […]

I sat at the foot of a cross in a corner at church and held Ashley’s hand. Me on one side, another sweet friend on the other. We cried, and prayed, and expressed our frustration and sadness. We let it all out, and held our sweet friend’s hands and let her grieve. Fast forward almost a year to […]

The December weather was mild and breezy. We spent the afternoon dodging rain, and had already rescheduled from the day before. God was smiling down on us, because we just faced a few drops (and it was fun to pop out the clear umbrellas for a few sets). It was so great to celebrate so […]

The nursery was perfect. White with accents of gray and navy. Sweet Scarlet and Violet were so sweet in their fluffy dresses. Baby Shores couldn’t have been calmer or in a better mood.

2018 has been such a fun year for me! As I look back on 2018, on how much I’ve grown and how much fun I’ve had, I’m overwhelmed with gratitude: To God for sending me the most amazing brides and clients in His timing. To my husband for taking on a lot of extra responsibilities around the […]
