I have always loved to take pictures. Recently I have been dabbling in it more than usual. I bought a new lens and it’s made me nuts for photography. For years I have prayed that God will call me to a career that works with my family life and allows me do something I love. And I really feel like God is calling me to photography. Maybe take Baptism photos or First Communion photos one day?? Who knows! But all I do know is that I love taking photos and being creative in the editing process.
Some pics turn out amazing, some are not my best-but I’m learning. I plan on signing up for photography & photo shop classes at Bedford Camera & Video here in town. I know none of this is going to happen over night and I know it’ll take a lot of work on my part to get it right, but I’m so excited to try! After Will starts school I’ll take the beginning steps of advertising my business. And in the mean time, I plan to do some free photography for family and friends for experience and practice. So far my sister-in-law, Katy, has booked head shots with me to take of her while we see each other this summer. I’m excited to begin this new venture in my life!
I hope you enjoy these photos of my kiddos. I love them and look forward to snapping more of my babes.
Not bad for a beginner…I’m learning and sometimes it takes a few mistakes along the way to get it right. So local family and friends, need me to take some photos of your kiddos?? Just let me know:)

I am an Iowa girl by rites. I grew up there until the tender age of 7 until we made the big move to Arkansas. People will ask where I am from and I always start off with saying Keokuk, … Continue reading
Recently while surfing Facebook I came across a page called Tip Hero. It’s a fun page with loads of “Ah Ha Moments” for even the most creative people. I obviously love to cook and bake but if I can find … Continue reading
It’s been busy at our home since we came back from vacation in Wyoming. Between school starting and getting the floors in the house redone, I’m completely spent by the end of night. It’s no secret that I love sangrias … Continue reading
