I Heart Faces | LOVE

I always look forward to this theme EVERY year! I love “LOVE”! But I had a very difficult time narrowing down the photo I wanted to use! I don’t do very many weddings, just because it’s not really what I specialize in, but I was very blessed to capture a few of them this year. […]

I Heart Faces | Best Face of 2012

I went back and forth over photos for this month’s theme. I have some heart-stopping gorgeous brides, chubby cheek babies, perfectly FUN children, romantic couples, WILD and beautiful Seniors.

Dad is in the military and on another deployment. And mom had NO expectations for the children cooperating for portraits. Oh, but life is […]
