Feb. 26//It’s All Greek To Me//Day One, Delphi, Greece//Vacation

February 26, 2018

Ever since we got married, Wilson and I have put a pretty large emphasis on travel; we believe that great experiences trump material items. All last year, we toyed with the idea of going to Europe. The idea of Italy got thrown out, so did Paris, Greece, etc. As the year went on, it seemed […]

Feb. 12//The Biltmore Asheville, North Carolina//Day Trip

February 12, 2018

Two weeks ago, Wilson and I headed up to Asheville, North Carolina to shoot an anniversary session; and, since we got tickets to enter the property, Wilson and I decided to make a little day trip out of it. For all of you friends that might not know what The Biltmore is, it is America’s […]

January 18, 2018

Over New Years weekend, Wilson and I decided to ring in 2018 by taking a little trip to one of our favorite places-St. Simons Island, Georgia. St. Simons is a cute, little Southern seaside town, where one can both play and relax.  Our St. Simons Island, Georgia Highlights:  -Our one-bedroom cottage. When Wilson and I […]

Jan. 11//Progresso, Mexico//Vacation

January 11, 2018

The second stop on Wilson and I’s cruise to Mexico was Progresso. Progresso is a port city on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula; it is really only common to go there on a cruise ship, because they can dock easily on its long pier. Also, the city is a gateway to the inland Mayan archaeological sites of […]

In December, Wilson and I headed out the door for our second annual cruise-this time on the Carnival Fantasy to Cozumel and Progresso, Mexico. Whoever invented the idea of a cruise ship really is a remarkable person-it feels like a city on the water. We just loved our cruise to the Bahamas last year, so […]

Dec. 16//Oh Due Date..I Am Not Ready

December 16, 2017

When I think of this date now, it is not what I imagined just nine months ago. I thought of little pink balloons all over our hospital room as we patiently waited our little one’s arrival; I thought of seeing her for the first time; and, I thought about the tears I would cry as […]

One of my goals for 2018 is to write more personal posts on the blog; I think it is so important for current and future clients to know about the girl behind the camera, and the legacy I want to live. In the new year, I am planning to share more about my vacations and […]

Dec. 3//Walt Disney World Resort, Animal Kingdom Lodge//Vacation

December 3, 2017

This Thanksgiving, Wilson and I traveled to Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando, Florida. This was my twenty-fifth time going to Disney (yes, my family is a little obsessed). I am not normally a theme park person, because I do not like heights; but, I love Disney because the rides are smaller, the people are […]

November 29, 2017

It has been a month since Wilson and I had our little fall weekend getaway in Chattanooga, Tennessee to both visit family and rest; but, I still want to feature it on the blog. It was such a busy fall wedding and portrait season for my business, and, that made me excited that we were […]
