Yopp Family

Matt, Melissa, and Marshal are one of my favorite families to photograph. They are SO much fun and full of ideas. I photographed their session on their  small farm in King William. Shooting in direct sun isn’t something I do normally. I was actually a little nervous… I totally rocked it though! I am IN LOVE with all of these images!

Playing Catch up! – Personal

Well, I get an F for blogging! No one ever said owning your own business, being a full time mom of two, and wife of the year was EASY.. Blogging has definitely not been on my mind. I just get so excited to move on to the next session after I am done editing. So be prepared for 100 blog posts.

My business has grown SO much in the last year. This is year is my first year that I have been consistently busy. No down time.. Which is good, and I’m NOT COMPLAINING! I have been so blessed. Our summer was filled with the river, the beach, family and our little farm. Brayden started 1st grade. He is a pro. Sometimes I wish he would at least act like he needs his Momma. Carsyn and I have been hanging out now that Bubba is back in school. I “try” to work during the day, but it seems like I get most of my work done between 8pm and 12am.  Baseball and dance also keeps us busy three nights a week…

Here are a few personal pics… enjoy <3

So, just a few years ago I was a “stay at home mom” trying to make a business out of my “hobby”  Yes I have been doing photography for a while, but that was in a retail studio… TOTALLY DIFFERENT WORLD! I never would had dreamed I would be where I am today. I was able to purchase a Mark III a few years ago (the mack daddy camera), and today I got my DREAM lens! I know, I sound like a idiot, but seriously, I have been wanting this leans forever! The Canon 50mm 1.2L!!! Of course that meant a mini session was needed ASAP!! Surprisingly my sweet Gracie was totally up for it!!
