January has been so refreshing! I caught up on my blog (y’all. 9 months out of date. NINE!!) I cleaned out my family photos to free up some much needed hard drive space. For my last sessions in November I got down to 9gigs! That’s 9 free gigs on my entire computer. GASP. I’m still looking for a more permanent solution for storage because…

I’m booking for spring!! The calendar is open for February, March, and early April. 

If you are PCSing this summer, BOOK NOW! Weekends go fast and so will your brain. Just do it.

There’s new pricing for 2018, but the all-inclusive Premium Session is still only $300 – fully edited gallery, digital downloads in color and black & white, over 50 images.

The ever popular Half-Priced Minis are coming back for spring! I announce dates and location via the email list first. Click over to the right >>> and subscribe.

I had the joy and privilege to photograph this guy’s newborn images. Then they came back!!! I’ve said it before, but it just seems even more exhilarating, maybe even frightening, to have repeat clients in our military lifestyle. I’m so used to building, finding new, saying hello and goodbye at the same time. I pray I can keep it fresh for you guys!

Long story short: Mom came to me with a truck load of ideas and I said YES to all of it!

Long story: Our original date was during the first typhoon of October 2017. Then we planned for Thanksgiving during the constant rain of November 2017. We had so many dates I don’t even know when we finally got it done. But good work, Mom! They’re gorgeous!

Family came to town! So we took pictures! These two are the only grandkids (so far!) this side of the family. The grands got to fly FIRST CLASS from South Carolina! (Go Gamecocks!) Kiddos were 2 & 1 and not thrilled about our shenanigans, but we coaxed few good ones ;)

I started this to fill out some space in September and get the busy season rolling. Then more people wanted in… So I did them again, and again! I may have fallen into a new fall routine. I used to do sessions every 6 months for my kids.  But my youngest is 2 now and they’re just not changing that much. I’m definitely a fan of these half-priced sessions. When the weather cooperates! Rescheduling four families is so much more difficult!

Heads up: More coming this spring! Sign up to the right >>>> first! I announce new dates there 24 hours before Facebook :D
