Thank you so much to everyone who came out, and took advantage of the Valentines Day Mini Sessions.
It was so great to meet so many new people from the community!!
These are just a few of my favorite images from the day … such adorable kiddos!!
I have had the pleasure of knowing this beautiful lady since she was 15, and I have watched her grow into an amazing wife and mother. Her precious little family will forever hold a very special place in my heart, and I am so thankful that they choose me every year to capture such important moments of their lives.
The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life.
What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life – to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories. ~George Eliot
Thank you so much guys for making the 6 hour drive out here for pictures! I am honored to have been able to shoot for your family once again this year!
Thank you so much to everyone that emailed in their stories!!
It was so hard to choose just one, I had to have a good friend of mine read all the stories and help me out.
So after much consideration the winner is Jennifer Bowman nominated by Leslie Unick!!!!
Thank you Leslie for your heart felt story. As hard as it was to do, I believe we chose someone who is truly deserving of this gift.
Leslie, please email me your contact info so we can get this gift certificate out to this deserving family.
Once again thank you so much to everyone who played along, and CONGRATULATIONS JENNIFER BOWMAN.

At 2pm, 9 years ago, my legs darn near gave out from under me as I started walking down that aisle towards the love of my life… thanks goodness my parents were there to hold me up.. lol.
In 9 years we have grown a little family, and I wouldn’t change one moment of it. Its not perfect, but life’s not supposed to be perfect… its supposed to be lived!
Anyhoo.. enough of the mushy-mushy stuff …

annnnnddddd once again… Facebook is in no way affiliated with this give away, and can NOT be held responsible if it should all take a turn for the worst!! LOL!

“Fall down seven times, stand up eight. ” - Japanese proverb
“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” – Mahatma Gandhi
