2014 was a great year for me!

I photographed 25 weddings, 56 family/children/sessions, 21 maternity/newborn sessions & 30 boudoir sessions.

Special thanks so my 2nd shooters & photo editor Sarah from Urban Anchor Photography.

My friend Kat who helps me blog!

And my sweet loving boyfriend Neil who makes my life happier and keeps me filled with love and smiles!

My goal for 2015 is to have a wedding each month!  So far I need to book a wedding in November 2015 & December 2015.  I already have 20 weddings for 2015.  2 of them destination weddings and maybe one more to come.  Maybe just maybe! I will book a destination wedding in Nov or Dec some place warm and tropical!!

I always striving to better my work and I am attending an elite and stellar workshop lead by top wedding photographers Todd Laffler who won 70 fearless photography awards, Brian Callaway who has won 18 fearless photography awards and his amazingly creative wife Allison Callaway who has received 25 fearless photography awards.

I am also doing some mentoring this year with Kirsten Lewis who is a crazy amazing family photography and wedding photography!!

I love my work and I am grateful that I get to photograph love and connection between people.  It’s amazing witnessing such joy either at a wedding or family/newborn shoot…

Boudoir photography continues to be one of passions.  I really love working with women and photographing their beauty. I get to be more creative in boudoir vs the rest of everything else I photograph simply because I can pose people.  Kids are not going to sit still and wait for me to find the light or their best side…

It uses a different part of myself plus I LOVE seeing women feel good about their selves and it makes a killer gift!

Thank you Madison for continuing to welcome and accept me into your community!  I am excited for 2015.
