Megan has held a special place in my heart for the few years I’ve known her – in fact, her whole family is pretty special to me.  For anyone that attended Hailey’s 16th Birthday Party, Megan was one of the 16 honorees.  Saturday I had the honor and privilege of photographing her marriage to Jason Young.  For all […]

      Thanks! Yes, Megan definitely wanted that ‘Western’ sepia look for a few of these types of shots. I haven’t even sifted thru all of them yet but I think she’ll be pretty tickled with the finals. We (the bridal party) were an hour late to the reception! he heReplyCancel

For the past several weeks, my 16-year old daughter, Hailey, has been preparing for Prom.

    Thank you so much for allowing me to take the girly roll, you know how much I love it! I was so happy to be a part of something so special to Hailey and everyone, thanks for the recognition and blog! I can’t wait to do it again! That is with your permission of course. Regardless of anything no one would be able to marvel at Hailey’s beauty without the best photographer around!
    It was such a fun time and I loved every minute of it! Regan has already notified me that she better receive the same treatment, so get ready you have another milestone coming and I will be happy to be the girly girl for Ray as well! You handled it like a true loving mother!

    XOXO,
    EricaReplyCancel
