Being Grateful

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Here’s what I’m grateful for this week. 1. Jesus. He loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so. 2. The hubs of 38 years. The one that can frustrate the heck out of me over something insignificant but later stitch me back up with a positive attitude, loving swat […]

Dear Mary, I am grateful for friends like you!

I just adored the write up on all the little loves in our lives. So spot on and sincere. You’re a wonderful Gramma to each of them. We love you!

The Busacker’s

The Busacker’s get the award for being the family I’ve ever photographed in the coldest temperatures – 28 degrees this past Saturday morning! I’ll be honest, with five children I was worried, but it was for not as they were troopers and we went a full session plus some! Bret is an attorney at Hawley […]

Mary, we absolutely love them! Just in case Bret has not told you, we are so excited to print them up and send to everyone and for ourselves!

Yay! I’m so happy to hear you love them! Yes, Bret was kind to say he thought they turned out well, but it’s always the woman of the house that I like hearing from. 🙂 Thank you Siri, your family was a joy to work with. Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful, now onward to Christmas!

Carter Bear [Newborn]

“Carter Bear” as his momma, Christine, calls him was born Carter Behrent Ellis on Eleven-Twelve-Thirteen weighing 7.7 lbs of pure sweetness and measuring 21″. Christine is a good friend of my daughter’s and this was a tough pregnancy in so many ways. It could have been tragic actually, but God covered her body and this […]

The Mills Family [Mini-Session]

Be still my barnyard heart! I have wanted to photograph someone at this barn since I found it early this summer, and guess what, the Mills have wanted to be photographed by a barn for a long time. Score x 2! I got the fun of photographing Jeremy, Danielle, and handsome Mason last year for […]

I am loving all these mini sessions! It has been the perfect fall for them.

The Babcock’s

When I’m not doing photography, I work at Hawley Troxell as their receptionist and have gotten to know so many wonderful people in my 14 years there — Laura, a Legal Administrative Assistant being one of them. We share several commonalities together — a love for the Lord, devoted husbands (hi Dave!), two married children […]

Love the pictures Mary! Sounds like you had a time but you still got some great shots! Very nice looking family.

Aubrey - November 18, 2013 - 5:18 PM

Tall to small, got to love all the generations in one shoot. Life is good.

The Heyer’s

Meet another fabulous family that I am honored to have photographed with two adorable 3-½ year old boys. There’s Bill, Alyson, Carson in gray, and Weston in blue. I have to tell you a funny story that started my session. When the family arrived, it didn’t take me long to think the boys looked like […]

Morgan [2014 Senior]

Morgan made all the arrangements to book our session … signs of a pretty responsible teen I’d say. She’s a senior at Skyview and has been on the dance team since her freshman year. She was awesome to work with and had such beautiful defined movements and lines in her posing, natural beauty (just a […]

Thank you ladies, I love shooting seniors so so much, and Morgan was a dream.

The Alton’s

Do you believe in love? I do too, and it’s wonderful to help these two young people celebrate their 1st anniversary of marriage through photos. While I’m not certain how old they are, it definitely takes me back 37 years to our first anniversary (and they thought it wouldn’t last. ;-)) This is Sara, a […]
