"
I don't ask you to love me always like this but I ask you to remember. Somewhere inside of me there will always be the person I am tonight."
- F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tender Is the Night

These two just couldn’t help but shine! Their dynamic was so cheerful and fun and I cannot wait for their wedding this winter. I always say that God brings us the best couples to work with – the fun ones, the gorgeous ones, the ones so in love with each other capturing their love is […]

A Joyful Film Kentucky Wesleyan College Engagement Session

May 30, 2019

Yesterday, Isaac and I got back from our little four-night vacation in Savannah, Georgia…and I can honestly say it was exactly what my soul needed. It was the perfect trip for us in such a dark time of our lives. While that dark cloud hasn’t suddenly disappeared, it has become something we can begin to […]

Surrendering to Peace

May 13, 2019

A while past four AM I sit on the couch listening to the clock tick. I hadn’t slept but maybe a few hours, feeling the weight, but more disbelief, all over again. Looking up on the wall I see a sign whose meaning has changed for me through the years. “For this child I have […]

Heaven Lee, Our Second Angel Baby

April 23, 2019

When I think of my daughter, I imagine squishy little legs pressed against me as I hold her. With dreamy eyes, I imagine those sleepless nights that would have been. The crying in the back seat of our car on the way to see family. I think of the little smiles that would come across […]

Mable Grace Rhodes Our Baby's Life Journey | Part 2

October 2, 2018

When I first became pregnant Isaac was away doing what he does best – helping others. I knew that morning he would be gone for most of the day, but I didn’t have any huge expectations so I went ahead and took the pregnancy test.   After taking the test I didn’t want to look […]

Mable Grace Rhodes Our Baby's Life Journey | Part 1

September 20, 2018

My heart is SO full right now, today was such a blessing. I woke up this morning with plans upon plans of hard work and hustle, and God knew I needed otherwise. I received a text this morning saying that my sister in law would be in town with the kiddos for most of the […]

Babysitting the Little Ones with a Grateful Heart

June 29, 2018

I am working from bed today, blaring Frank Sinatra in my ol’ 1913 home, simply sitting in a joyful presence. Gosh, joy on a gloomy weathered day like this catches me on a whim and today I’m making the most of it. Lately the whole idea of purpose has been playing heavily in my mind. […]

Living Out God’s Plan for Us

June 12, 2018

I get asked all the time by other photogs how to create consistency in images as a professional photographer. And figuring it out isn’t always easy! Actually, I don’t think it was ever easy, at least, not for me at first. When you look through a beautifully designed magazine, think Southern Living, all the photos […]

Creating Consistency in Photographs for the Nonprofessional

April 10, 2018

Today a friend from high school messaged me about getting married. She wanted to know what it was like to be married so young, (in fact too young to drink alcohol when I was married) and just how my hubby and I handle it. Especially financially. I heard once that financial struggle is the number […]

God, Marriage and Money

March 16, 2018

When I was younger I always assumed I would get married. There was no question. In my small town, that is what you naturally did, and once I got passed the fear of boys and wanting to be a nun at a young age to avoid them, I embraced this marriage tradition wholeheartedly. It wasn’t […]
