The Garner Family

I first met Deryn and Ashley when I photographed their engagement and wedding portraits just over a year ago. Now I am pleased to introduce to you the happy couple and their newest addition, Decota Vance Garner. This baby was an absolute gem to work with. Full of smiles and so attentive to the camera - not to mention how cute he is. (To be expected, I'm sure, when mommy and daddy are so gorgeous themselves.) Though we shot in the middle of the day and the heat was excrutiating, the family were real troopers and I think have been awarded with some beautiful shots. Thanks to this gorgeous trio for letting me have the pleasure of working with them again - I can't wait to watch their little family grow and wish them all the best!

Sheena & Matt Are Engaged - Finally!

I never thought the day would come for these two who've been dating for a number of years, and as their former youth pastor's wife I use to tease Sheena and Matt all the time that she/he needed to make the other propose. It was all done in good time however when he finally popped the question to Ms. Hamilton and she said yes. I am so honored that I got to photograph this gorgeous couple for such an important moment in their lives. Sheena and Matt are great people who have a lifetime full of happiness ahead of them. Because the weather wouldn't cooperate, the shoot had to be pushed back and adjusted several times before we were finally able to nail down time to make it happen - and still, the rain ended up coming at the end of their time with me. With incredible attitudes the two not only embraced the downpour but, one of the longest snakes we've ever seen (thank God we weren't struck!) not to mention horrible heat and humidity. Incredible portraits were made as a result however, and I can't wait to work with Sheena on her Bridals. Congratulations to a beautiful couple. I look forward to your big day.
