Jude is turning ONE!!!

I can't believe this little guy is almost a year old already. I met my friend Jenna when she was pregnant so I have never known her with out the joy of this little boy. I love them both dearly and I am so honored to have taken these pictures. There is something you can't fake about the love between a mother and her son.

Better together.

Today I had the joy of doing an engagement shoot. It was truly wonderful to get to spend time with people in love. Such a sweet couple. I hope you can enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed capturing them.

ruffled up!

So I have been making clothes. Well remaking clothing from hand-me-down, thrown out and thrifted clothing. I love making something no one wants into something everyone wants, or at least I want!

Jenna and baby Jude

Here are some of my favorites!

I love this whole taking pictures thing. really. I did another shoot last night with my good friend Jenna and her 9 month old baby boy Jude. We started a little late in the day and it had gotten too dark out. It caused alot of the shots to be too dark and even grainy. We hope to do another shoot in a couple of months around Judes 1st birthday!

Ally and Michael engagment shoot.

So since this whole job dilemma started I have been applying left and right for jobs I really don't want to work. This is what I want to do. Take pictures, pictures of people. I figure no one is going to start my own business for me, so here it goes! I am officially on the market and for hire. Send me business...please?

personal publicity.

I had to make a personal website for a class.
I didn't really have time to make it cool, so I just made it REALLY simple.

Olddies but goodies.

Back in early December of 2009 Collective Clothing hosted a Wes Anderson themed fashion show. It was held the same day as MAINX24 at the Chattanooga Choo Choo. These are some images I took that day.

I have been working on my personal website and trying to decide which photos to put in to my online portfolio. Since I am currently in procrastination mode and not wanting to my actual class work, I thought I would share some of my favorites.

I am thinking of having my name legally changed to...


It doesn't seem to matter that I have my last two weeks of college
perfectly laid out on this home made calendar.
I simply need to just go through the motions,
just do a few assignments, write some papers, and take some tests.
If I have done it once I have done those things a million
times in my career as a student. Some how this being possibly the
last time I will EVER have to finish a semester ever again,
all I want to do is everything I don't need to do. Example blog.

This is my to do list. I make a list almost every day of my life,
and the next day I take the old list cross things off
and make a revised version, adding new things.
This is my last and final todo list of college.
16 things left to do. I need to just sit down and do them all.
Not get out of this chair until they are complete, but no.
I will find one thousand other things I don't need to do and do them.

This is my face as I blog, facebook, groove shark,
google, shop online and generally just gaze at this beautiful
computer that doesn't belong to me.
This is not the face I make when I actually work.

I think I might actually have a condition or a disorder or a disease.
Maybe it was contagious and I caught it from someone else,
but either way I can't seem to just focus and
finish up my work! If you or anyone you know
has experienced this senioritis before and know the cure,
please help!

things to do when I graduate college.

1)Hang out with my husband. I miss him. For the last two years, since I joined the restaurant business our schedules have been backwards. The restaurant business was good to me though, it allowed me to take classes during the day, earn money fast when I was serving, and realize I love being around people. The truth of the matter is that I miss hanging out with the man I married and I look forward to more time to spend with him.

2)Clean my house. I really do enjoy living in a tidy home, I would love for it to be perfectly clean but really I like a home that looks lived in. Since my time restraints lately and the fact that when I arrive home I am often exhausted or just need a drink, I don't tend to keep the house in very good shape as of lately. (or anytime really) I look forward to cleaning as I go instead of when it unbearable.

3)Gardening. I love to grow things, just so happens I am terrible at it but last year I grew some great veggies on my deck in pots. I got my act together this spring just long enough to plant tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, strawberries, green beans, onions, bell peppers and a few others. I look forward to waking up in the morning and taking care of my baby plants until late summer when they begin to take care of me.

4)Read books. not for class. just books I like. I miss reading things that I enjoy just for me. I also miss the community of sharing books I love with others and getting books referred to me. I love to write my name in the front of every book I read and then pass it on. Someday if we ever settle down again (probably much later in life in the highlands) I would love to have a library but I hope to travel abundantly in the next chapter of my life and I don't want to move my books with me, only choice ones.

5)Take more pictures. This I sort of do now, but more to document our lives not just for the pure joy of it. I aspire to take photographs that show life exuded and the most epic moments savored. and to get paid for it. I want to learn how to use my camera more, how to give people direction to in turn photograph them well.

6)Make dinner. and lunch. and breakfast. I have been to busy to cook, and I miss preparing food for the man I love and sitting down with him to enjoy it, rather its good or not. I love that even when I try something new and its terrible Beejay will always eat and pretend like he likes it

EPIC SUMMER> coming soon. with you?

We three live in a house together, on a mountain,
and are looking for our fourth house mate.
The house is cute and cozy with plenty of space.
The room for rent can come with a twin size bed.
Its painted green, we allow pets, the house has a
great front yard with a slack line,
back yard with deck and fire pit!

If your interested or know someone who might be call us!

of words i have ever encountered.

back to a life with time and hobbies.
I want this to be what i live by from now on.
