ABOUT ME

I tell stories. Some call them tall tales. I call them the truth.

A big thank you to Laraine for making such a beautiful album for us! It's a great way to remember our special day!

On one of the most memorable days of my life, you made me feel special! Your personality was appreciated and definately noticed. Thank you so much for the stunning photographs and for helping my Maid of Honor pin up the train on my dress. Many of our guests also noted how well they could tell that you were doing.

Johnny and I wanted to send along our thanks for a wonderful engagement photo session. We truly appreciate your time, generosity in planning last minute and we are so happy with the final product. You have a great eye AND I love that you will go the distance for a clever capture.

The irrefutable facts:

  • I like to ride my bicycle in a dress.
  • I spent several years of my childhood traveling by cartwheel.
  • When I bake, half the flour ends up on my frilly owl apron.
  • When I was a kid, I was too busy making mud pies and fighting off bramble monsters in the woods to keep up with the latest trends. I guess that’s what I’m still doing.
  • I want my home to be always filled with twinkling lights, deep laughter and full bellies.
