Gemma & Flora

Gemma & Flora

I had the pleasure of documenting my cousin Kaylee’s new baby girls Gemma and Flora after their NICU stay. To say these girls are loved, is a huge understatement. They are treasured, and probably the sweetest princesses I have ever met. It’s fun meeting twins… Their personalities are very different! You can probably tell from the video Flora is the mild easy-going baby and Gemma has an opinion and likes to tell you all about it. Ross and Kaylee are already amazing parents,...
Simplified Photography – The Little Years

Simplified Photography – The Little Years

My photography was all black and white darkroom artistic mubo-jumbo before I had kids… I loved the creative process and I did what I needed to do to pass my college classes, which were mostly film photography classes. I can almost smell the chemicals… have you ever smelled fixer? Then you know exactly what I’m talking about. It’s kind of like gas, nasty smelling but you’d almost wear it as perfume because it oddly smells awesome at the same time… am I just...
Makers gonna make!!

Makers gonna make!!

When we redesigned our studio Kim and I had the idea that this could be a place where we encouraged creativity. It’s a big room, not just for us to take pictures when we have sessions, but a place we can come together and make things. I’m a dreamer and I see so much possibility for community and fellowship while learning or practicing a new skill. I see generations¬† of women coming together and learning from each other. Sometimes I gotta quit dreaming, and start doing, so...
The story behind the song, “O Holy Night”

The story behind the song, “O Holy Night”

Did you grow up listening to Paul Harvey and “The Rest of the Story” like I did? I loved his voice, it was a time-machine we traveled through the radio waves of the broadcast to a different place and learned something new. I usually listened to it at my dads cabinet shop over lunch. We all got quiet while we ate, and the familiar voice of Paul Harvey told us stories and narrated history and the present in a way that gave hope. I loved the stories and waited in anticipation for the...
Keep What Matters…

Keep What Matters…

If 100 people were polled on what they would grab out of their house if it were burning down, most would say their pictures. Baby books, wedding albums, framed and canvas prints from the walls… we’d all grab those if we had time. Have you ever met someone that lost their families photos in a fire? It’s devastating… we value these moments above even money and diamonds. Memories, it’s safe to say, are priceless!! I’m sitting in my office at this very moment...

Beauti- FALL with the Gilliland Girls

It’s here! The cooler weather is proof, and finally Holton’s trees are in their full glory!! Fall… where have you been? We love you so! We had a little session with the Gilliland Gals the other night and tomorrow we look forward to our November Heritage Sessions, then a long winters sleep. Just kidding. We are busy with some amazing photography guides. (These are for you! You can finally learn to use your big camera!) There’s no time to sleep. Stay tuned for more on...
