There’s a first for everything

Congratulations to the Oliver family on the beautiful addition to their family, Hadley, from China. Adoption holds a special place in my heart. I was adopted when I was four years old. I’m thankful that God placed me where I am and all of the opportunities I’ve been given because of adoption. When the Kohut family […]

It was such a wonderful opportunity to spend time in Europe and explore different areas. We took a Mediterranean cruise through Italy, Monte Carlo, France and Spain!

My brother refers to the desert as Mars. It is quite different out there and it was great to shoot with a new backdrop. Justin and Michelle are both contractors for the Naval Air Weapons Base at China Lake which originally brought them there. We had good times relaxing together. Excuse my shadow, hard to […]

Mama’s wedding gown

Instead of letting your gown sit in a box, why not get it out for a photo shoot with your little girls? I had a great time doing this with my beautiful nieces Hannah and Caitlyn. They even had their grandmother’s wedding dress for this fun photo shoot. A great time with the girls.

Happy Birthday to my Grandmother

I love my grandmother Helen. (We call her Mumps… simply because my older sister named her that when she was first talking). I want to be in her kind of incredible, physical shape when I am her age. You would never guess her age to look at her and I will never tell it here […]
