Why I've been MIA....

Well as you have probably noticed, posts have been getting shorter and fewer. Here's why.....I first want to thank everyone who has supported me in my photography business. Those who have encouraged me, and those who have trusted me to capture some very important times in your lives. Unfortunately, due to personal issues going on at this time, I have decided to take a break from photography. If/when I decide to start accepting more shoots I will be sure to let everyone know. This is not something I thought would happen, but right now I need to focus on what’s most important in my life – God and my family. Again, thank you for your support and I hope God blesses you in more ways than you can imagine in 2010!!!(Note: If you have already scheduled a shoot with me for 2010, don’t worry, I still plan on doing those shoots. I hope to go out with a bang!!!)

Aunt Juanita's Wedding

Last weekend my Aunt (well she's actually my cousin but she's the same age as my grandmother so I've always called her Aunt) got married. I was honored to be asked to take pictures at her wedding. It was such a sweet ceremony and a great time to see family that we hadn't seen in awhile.

The ceremony and reception were held in their church's fellowship hall.

Sneak Preview

I haven't finished editing Sara's pictures but I had to give everyone a little sneak preview. We had a little tea party in the park and she was soooo adorable!!!

And the wedding...

Sometimes there are pictures that I see and immediately think to myself that they just HAVE to be in black and white. I love the simplicity of black and white pictures and the emotion they bring out. With Callie and Michael's wedding there were so many that I converted to black and white. Here are a few from the wedding day. Thanks Michael and Callie for allowing me to be a part of your day!

The weather was BEAUTIFUL!!!

Make-up time!

Last minute phone calls


Callie's dad and brother kept us laughing all day. Her dad chillin before his pictures.

Callie and Michael decided to speak to each other on opposite sides of a door before the ceremony. They were too sweet!

Last minute Chick-fil-a run!

Waiting on the grand entrance.

I loved the small details Callie included throughout the wedding. Each girl, including Callie, had a butterfly in their flowers. Then Callie's dad sang Butterfly Kisses during the ceremony.

The flowergirl had to get in on the phone action.

It's almost time.

Callie's dad and the flower girl hid in the choir robes after the ceremony.

Fun wedding party!!!

Again I just love the black and white ones!

The church had beautiful stained glass windows.

The cake was beautiful and the cake table was even more stunning as a whole.

As you can see Caleb didn't go for traditional family pictures.

And they're off!
