Today, my friends, is a day of denial. That little chubby-cheeked baby that turned me into a gushing Godmother is sixteen years old today. SIXTEEN! I can’t even believe it. I still wonder when he had time to grow up. It seemed like just yesterday that I was stealing him away from his […]

The unprecedented year of 2020 has finally come to a close. For many, this has been the worst year yet-job loss, death and sickness, an unsteady economy, and a seemingly hovering cloud of doom looming over the world. Although the year has had its many downs, it was also filled with lessons, love, and many […]

For the second spotlight on families that have made the life-changing decision to grow their families through adoption, I want to highlight the inspiration for this blog series. I was first introduced to Julia when a “photogra-friend”  tagged me in a post in a photography FB group.  Julia was looking for someone in the Louisville/Southern […]

Today, our journey through the pink shoe diaries takes us to another special lady and thriver. She is a wife, mother and social worker. She has a beautiful and spunky 15 year old daughter and an equally stunning 27 year old bonus daughter. Since her breast cancer diagnosis, she has started to explore different interests […]

A New Year’s Eve Party New Year’s Eve is a time to release things of old and embrace all that is new and good in your life. Well, my latest bride and groom did just that. They not only chose to wed at midnight on the eve of a new year, but they brought in […]

My latest portrait session was somewhat of a full-circle moment for me. You see, as a teen, I had the desire to become a photographer. However, due to this thing called life, I set that aside for other dreams. Years later, I hired a photographer and did a 40th birthday photo shoot which brought the […]

I had the pleasure of shooting a lifestyle session with the Preston Family last week. This beautiful family of three, Sanja, Tate, and little Emilija, were perfectly coordinated in their fall colored attire and were ready to go before I even arrived. As I got to know a little bit about the family and their […]

I remember as a child hearing “old people” say things like, “You are growing up so fast. I remember when you were born!” So, I have now turned into one of those “old people.” I literally remember when my latest senior, Ondrea, was born. At one time, I was even her family’s babysitter. The baby […]
