I grew up in a fairly small town and have known most all of my best girlfriends for years.  I feel like our friendships are one of a kind. I mean, maybe other people are still close to all of their high school (and some middle school) friends, but I like to believe we are blessed.  Blessed to have practically grown up together and shared so many memories with one another over the years. We cheered together in high school, went to college together, graduated, moved away, and some of us have even gotten married!  I am so blessed to have these women in my life and even more ecstatic that one of them is now a Mom!

Ashley and Phillip (and puppy Noah) welcomed Raya Simone into the world in December and I don't think they could have asked for a more precious baby girl. She's beautiful. 
Seriously, why didn't you tell me you were models?
Ashley, you are already such an amazing Mom! 
Ashley and Raya are seriously beautiful, as you can see, but this picture of Phillip is my favorite from the whole day!  He just has a look that says "cool, confident new Papa." I just love it! Oh yea, and the fact that he looks like a model!
I'll leave you with another favorite and what I am convinced is a little smirk that we got from sweet Raya toward the end of our shoot. 

Ashley and Phillip, Thank you so much for having us in your home to document this special time in your lives. Alan and I are so blessed to call you friends. Congratulations on becoming parents!

One of my goals for 2012 is to implement a blogging calendar; to post on a more regular basis.  I think my newly updated blog will help to keep me organized as well as making it easier for you to find things you might be looking for. 

What do you think of it?  (I am REALLY loving it!)  There are a few pages that need some more attention, but I already love it so much more than the old blog and I hope you do too!

Apparently, I really enjoyed the holidays!  I really enjoyed some much needed downtime and relaxing with family and friends! I was so relaxed that I forgot to blog a few photo sessions during the end of 2011!  What was I thinking?
Well, here's to getting caught up.....

I am so thankful for my amazing clients! My clients that come back to me to capture memories for their family again and again. 

I shot Meg and Stephen's Wedding last summer and was thrilled to have the opportunity to get together with their family again.  We had a great day and I don't think there's any denying how great the Cooper Family is! I mean, look how beautifully they color coordinated....
Each family had a color scheme and, to be quite honest, it made my job so much easier! I just called them "green, blue and yellow family" all was pretty fun!
And, I think everyone is still wondering, who is Ninny's Favorite?

It is currently 32ยบ here in South Georgia and we're happy to welcome the winter weather.  
We're enjoying some time by the fire and hope you're keeping warm tonight, too!
