Carina: Class of 2015!


Congratulations, Carina! Just one last year of high school and then you’re on to new adventures. You are a sweet girl with a bright future ahead – I know it. 

Sam, Rob, Will + Family


We lucked out on Friday night and had a beautiful family photo shoot at Corbett’s Glen – the rain never showed! I met this family when we got there and right away knew I liked them. Samantha had the idea to get some fun family shots while everyone was in town and so we explored the gorgeous park with little Will and their dog Macy. The absolute BEST part about being a photographer for me is meeting new people – especially great people like the ones in the pics below. 

Arcadi Family Vacation


I finally got around to sharing a few photos from our family vacation this summer. It was a beautiful week spent on Jekyll Island, GA. 

Senior: Jamie


I love this girl. She not only has natural outward beauty, but she has one incredible heart too. She’s the real deal – funny, laid-back, sweet, an all-american girl. I was thrilled to say the least when she asked me to do her senior photos – what an honor. We got to incorporate her love of soccer and playing guitar. I had so much fun with her. Jamie – I love you to the moon and back. You have been created perfectly for amazing things, girl. Keep pursuing truth and never give up on seeking God’s heart for you first, in all things. His plans for you are wild and won’t disappoint. I hope you love these photos as much as I do! Congrats on your senior year – what an accomplishment! I’m so proud of you.

Wedding: Cody and Kelly


Cody and Kelly’s wedding day was beautiful – the weather was great! Everything about the day was wonderful. Kelly was stunning – absolutely gorgeous. The guys and girls in the party were not only dressed to impress but they were tons of fun – really genuinely good people. One of my favorite moments was watching Cody beam while watching his bride walk down the aisle. Congratulations, Cody and Kelly – I know you’ll both have a blessed marriage and have lots of people who will stand beside you helping you along the way. Love you guys. 

Family: the Sullivans


My husband’s sister and family live in Ohio and we only get to see them a handful of times each year and we hate that. But this summer we were able to spend a whole week with them while on a family vacation! (I’ll be posting some vacation pictures soon) Here are a couple of pictures I took of them while staying on Jekyll Island, GA.

Wedding: Alex and Michele


This was the first of my double wedding weekend and what a way to start it off! Alex and Michele’s wedding was wonderful. You’d never know that it was pulled together so quickly. Everything was elegant and everyone so joyful. Michele was a classic beauty complete with pearls and her signature red lips. I love, love, love shooting weddings for my friends – and this day was just perfect. Congratulations, Alex and Michele! I know your marriage will be blessed and full of fun, respect for one another, and sealed with a deep love for God. I’m so proud of you and honored to have been your photographer. 

Janessa turns one!


My niece turned one year old while we were on vacation! It was the perfect time to have a beach photo session. She is so cute and has such a beautiful smile that lights up everyone around her. Happy birthday to you, sweet Janessa!

Wedding: Kevin & Leena


Kevin and Leena had a sweet outdoor wedding at Seneca Park this past Saturday and a wonderful reception hosted at the zoo! This was my first time shooting a wedding event at a zoo and I loved it! This couple is so nice and their families make you feel like you are a part of them the minute you walk in. Congrats, Kevin and Leena – love you guys!

Wedding: Josh and Kelsey


Josh and Kelsey – your wedding day was absolutely perfect! The weather, the dress, the details, all the loving family and friends who came out to celebrate you both – it definitely made it to the top of my “favorite weddings to photograph” list! I challenge anyone to find a better looking couple! I wish you both the best and know that your marriage will be strengthened over time as you grow in understanding and learn to serve one another through thick and thin. No matter what lies ahead, trust that God has gone before you and is equipping you now to face it with Him giving you his peace and strength. Keep being awesome and putting one another ahead of yourself. Love you guys – hope you enjoy these previews.
