  • Hey there, it’s me!
Well, this is fun...and a bit out of my comfort zone... 👀
My first podcast interview ever, with the fabulous Joanne @thegirlinspiredproject !
Was completely flattered (and nervous) when she reached out to me a few months ago.  I’ve known and worked with Joanne for many years, so I knew it would be a good thing! 
A little insight to my business that I adore so much, and how I’ve worked so hard these past few years to keep my family the top priority (with some success). It’s true, the kids do grow up and move out, sending child #2 to college tomorrow as proof!
Anyhew, link in Profile if you want to take a listen, or find on your preferred podcast channel @thegirlinspiredproject.
Lemme know what you think!

  • One of many favorite images chosen today at beautiful Taylor’s image reveal & ordering appointment! 
This image will be a stunning 16x24 framed wall portrait, displayed in the foyer of her home ❤️
I always ask my senior girls if they’d like portraits in a favorite dress, or in this case, prom dress.  Hair & make up on point, it’s the perfect opportunity to have a professional photo in that amazing dress✨
More to come from this gorgeous senior & her  portrait session!
Limited fall sessions open, message me for info!
All senior sessions include professional hair & make up, and several wardrobe & location changes.  Model for the day✨
