Beauty & The Emcee: Brittany & Dee - Wed

This wedding had to be one of the most fun we've witnessed in some time.  If you follow this blog roll, perhaps you'll recall their engagement session.  The groom is a rising rap artist with incredible talent, stage presence and an infectious personality.  The bride is more demure.  They seem to balance one another.  I love to see that.  She is working on her masters degree in counseling and has, just, the loveliest face.  At the reception, each one did a musical tribute to the other.  The groom brought their guests to their feet and tears to his bride's eyes.  It was beautiful.We pray many full years of growing in love together for Dee and ...

Most days, I can barely believe my life! :)  I'm so grateful for ALL that God consistently gives me grace to be steward over.  ...I'm also very tired. Lol.  I had to enlist the help of a friend to properly photograph my own children! Norkeita was so patient, so supportive, so accommodating... She played with and clowned for my babies while I sweated to snap as many images as I could before we all totally melted down.  I absolutely could NOT have executed this session without her.As a professional photographer, working very closely with so many beautiful families through all of their meaningful life seasons, naturally, it has been especially important for me to capture my ...

This end-of-May post will be rather tardy, in that these photos were taken back in March.  It is a more personal post than are my usual shares, so for that, I'll give myself a pass this time. ;) I had the great pleasure of spending a day with Danielle Finney of DFinney Photography during a one-on-one mentoring session customized especially for me! My initial model was even an expectant mama of twins (as I was a little more than a year ago), but as fate would have it, a blizzard had our meeting postponed and I was instead introduced to this adorable couple of then parents-to-be who delivered their little guy less than a week later.  :)It was terribly cold that day in beautiful ...
