Hi All! Just wanted to let you know I am doing FREE sessions for Military families through Christmas. If you know someone out there that has a spouse that is deployed and wants photos of theirself with their kids or just pics of the kids I want to shoot them! Not only will I be doing the session free but I'll also be making a show of the images (if they want me to ) to share with them overseas. Holidays are an even tougher time four our service Men and Women and I would love to give them amazing art of their family to make their holiday a little brighter. Spread the word and tell them to call me asap, I'll take good care of them, but then again you already knew that right!

Thanks Friends!

Andrea and Jay in Germatown

Love this one of Andrea and her father!

Andrea and Jay had a wonderfully intimate wedding the week before Christmas and I have to say it really put me in the Christmas spirit! I was concentrating so much on making sure everything was ready for my son to arrive I didn't even have time to get out my Christmas music. But since it was almost an hour drive for Blake and I to get to Germantown I thought I would dust them off. Andrea was one of the most calm brides I've ever worked with, and Jay was a little nervous, but you could jsut tell it was him wanting to make sure everything was perfect for his lovely bride. It was really nice to have so much time to work with them on an individual level. Most of the weddings we do have large wedding parties and lots of family that need to be photographed, but for Andrea and Jay it was all about them and we wouldn't have had it any other way. I felt like I was shooting old friends I'd known for years. My favorite part of the day was after all the guests had left and the family was cleaning up we snuck over to their new home and got some shots of the sunset and Jay carrying Andrea over the threshold. It was a shot I will never forget, in all my years I've never seen a groom carry his bride over it! Thanks Andrea and Jay it was a blast, you two were such warm and thoughtful people, we hope to get to see you again soon!

Wow! Gorgeous pictures :)
♥ Mr. & Mrs. Hawkins are absolutely stunning and you've captured the joy of their day and their love & adoration for each other in these pictures so perfectly.
♥ How precious the photo of Andrea & her daddy, Kevin. Was a heartfelt moment as he gave his daughter away on behalf of all her family who love & support her & Jay ...and then as he tenderly kissed her.
