Kady and David have an elopement

Last year, many other small businesses, including myself were preparing for the year 2020. Aside from it being the start of a new decade, it was also a leap year.

Over the weekend, I met with my senior representatives to create their prom portraits.

“Everything happens for a reason” I had planned this shoot for months. I talked with the ladies at Southern Bride about my vision and they helped select the dress and tux that would best fit the style I was going for. I had scheduled with Bella Collina my time slot and I had created a roadmap of how best to use my […]

High Fashion Stylized Bridal Shoot

“Being a full time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs… since the payment is pure love” – Mildred B. Vermont I was referred to this particular client from another photographer who was unavailable at the time. She wanted a glamour styled shoot of herself and with her son in a studio… within a week.
