Welcome to the blog and thank your for stopping by! Take a look around and take a look into my most recent work. I may show off some cool new stuff I will be offering this year. Love what you see? Contact me to set up a time to meet at the studio.

I hope you enjoy looking at the photos I share, I just ask that you please do not try to right-click and borrow my photos. It's just not nice. They are watermarked with my name for a reason. They have this thing called a copyright. If you are still unsure what that is.. please take a moment to read here.

Major Announcement!

March 13, 2013

 

There’s a whole lot more to this photo. Yes this Mike & I’s way of announcing that we are welcoming a child to our family but it’s so much more.  It shows endurance, perseverance, determination, hopes and dreams.  You see, we were told that in order to get where we are today, we would need A.R.T. (Assisted Reproductive Technology) in the form of IVF (In vitro fertilization)

IF or infertility is a disease. It affects approximately 6.1 million individuals throughout the United States alone.  Yet it’s not something openly talked about because it is an intimate, private, and delicate subject.  It’s embarrassing and not ‘normal’ even if it is something completely beyond your control.  People tend to ‘judge’ you and try to apply advice.  There’s just no good way through IF.

Most of the medication taken up to this point and a nice bruise!

I’ve been trusting in God the entire way.  He’s brought us through our long and trying journey and after several tries & thousands of dollars later, we are excited for the chance He had given us.  It is bitter sweet because there are many amazing IF ladies/men/couples out there that are never given this chance.

Anyone with questions about IF or about our journey, please feel free to PM me.

Hometown weddings are great since there is really no travel time to figure in.  But what I like even better is incorporating a bride and grooms personalities and lifestyles into wedding photos.  This wedding was a lot of fun and a great wedding party.  Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Gonzales!
