Jesse, Leighton, and Lynnex

Ahoy there!

Oi! Things lately have been a little offset, to say the least. I am very happy to be getting back to you on a regular basis.


A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of creating some wonderful family portraits for a Marine and his family while he was home for a short time.

Jesse has spent his time as a dedicated serviceman, and his wife and daughter, Leighton and Lynnex, miss him every second he is not home. And you can definitely see that here in these select few images. Their family is tightly woven, and happy all around.

Jesse’s time in has consisted of over 4 years so far, and he carries it well. Him and his daughter display a wonderful connection with each other, too. The entire time we were shooting this session, Lynnex was happy as could be with her daddy by her side, and they were making each other laugh and smile, as well as Leighton.



This happy family started when these two were married on March 8th, 2014, after 2 years of being together. You could say they have a connection, for sure! They did the hard work of only seeing each other every 3 months, sometimes only talking for an hour on Sunday. They would take turns flying out to see each other to make it work while he was in training and afterward.
I worked with Leighton at my previous job, and she is a very happy individual, but happy when her family is whole! But, she is always smiling.



During the time we spent on location, we had some chickens coming up to say “hi.” Lynnex was happy for them, even going into a little shack as she follow them. But most of the chickens wanted to run around more than even Lynnex did!


This is the Lanier family, my followers and readers! Thank you for stopping in to read a little about them. I respect each of them and look forward to seeing their family grow once time allows.

Enjoy the rest of your day!



Until next time,


Coffee Date Announcement

To my daily readers, I bring you a new type of announcement. A coffee date announcement!

Mandi contacted me one day looking for someone to recreate an image she noticed online for her and her husband, Justin. We discussed it for a little bit, but I threw a couple of ideas her way. After a couple of weeks of hammering out ideas and details, we went down a different path. And I am so glad we did!

You see, Justin and Mandi are avid coffee drinkers, and they had something they wanted to tell the world.


So, as they sit and sip they coffee, we talked a little about who they were and their announcement they had for their friends and family.

I guess, to show their loved ones and us, it was going to have to be a little shocking.

After all, it might be a surprise to a few people…Justin and Mandi are adding something to their family, and it’s not more coffee!


Mandi wanted me to create an announcement card for her to send out to friends and family, and this is the final product. I am very glad she contacted me, and very happy to have been able to create this for them!


I hear her loved ones enjoyed the cards. I wonder if Justin has woken up yet?



Just kidding! This was purely an announcement made in humor, he didn’t really pass out…he already knew!

I firmly believe their new addition is going to be blessed beyond belief after his/her arrival in October.


Until next time,

Kris and Fallon

Welcome back!

I recently had the pleasure of meeting with Kris and Fallon, and capturing some images of their great family.


Truth be told, my wife has known Fallon since way back in school, and has watched her daughter, Savannah, grow up over the years. That doesn’t take away from the uniqueness of each sister.

Each girl has their own style and personality. Let’s hope they don’t clash!



Fallon was one of my clients over the Christmas holidays that was suppose to get some Christmas pictures done, but the weather was working against us each time we scheduled a day. We ended up having to schedule a family session outside of Christmas, and I am glad we were able to follow through with it! The weather was helpful, this time!



Oh, and as you can see above, the girls did NOT want to see Kris and Fallon share even the slightest bit of affection!


But in the end, aside from silliness, this family is quite the pleasure to work with. You can see the happiness within them.


Until next time,
