Welcome to Life Stories...

Welcome to My Life's Story! Mine is made up of so many wonderful people-purposfully woven together! Everything we do is with and for each other and I am so glad that you have taken the time to stop by- so grab your favorite cup of coffee and Enjoy!

What I love most: my family, my friends, my son's giggles when he thinks he is getting away with something... great conversation, anything with a good title, bold coffee, anyone with a zest for life, exciting and fresh ideas, anything crafty, getting my hands dirty, dancing in the rain and weddings! (all weddings!)

I am happiest: when I can share what I see through a lens. Just as there are no two people alike, neither are views on life. I strive to uniquely photograph any event or person so their style can easily be seen.

"Life Happens... Picture it Boldly!"

Would love to hear from you~ If you would like to leave a comment feel free or email me at

Kezia & Sean

I have to admit that I was a little nervous... and as it turns out, so was Kezia. Not having met before wasn't the problem for me as Kezia and I (and Sean) have talked quite a bit... (gasp, that's a shocker I know- me, like to talk? The idea of it..) but I just haven't shot a lot of engagement sessions so although I have done quite a bit of peeking around for ideas it's not the same as telling people how to kiss and pose while looking blissfully in love (in public with a bunch of on lookers...). We didn't have a problem and I joked that I instantly became Sean's new best friend since he got to spend the better part of 3 hours kissing Kezia... And let me not forget Mr. Tyler... this is one little guy who loves being in front of a camera and it shows... He did beautifully and hung in there like a trooper as we trekked about St. Augustine. Can't wait for their wedding in November. Being an art teacher, Kezia has some really neat ideas for their wedding that I can't wait to photograph! For now, I have a few teasers, as my CS3 is on back order... but should be up soon...

Thanks again for letting me spend some time with you guys. See you again soon Ms. Kezia... ;o) ~S.

My Mom...

So after almost 2 very long years, I have had my mom to myself (and Ayden) since Thursday evening. It has been incredible! We have bounced around town and talked way into the morning about everything and nothing. (My very favorite thing in the world!)

This evening we decided to try to beat the storm that was creeping in on us and do a (very) mini session of Mom and Ayden down at Fort George Island. We had just enough light. Although we had to bribe Ayden with money to take the pictures to begin with, I think he ended up having the most fun of any of us! So glad the rain held out...

Love you mom! So glad you were here with us! (Thanks Charlie for letting me borrow her for a couple of days... You are the best-est ever!)

Bare Feet Babies...

Aahhhh... to be a child again... and just not care! You gotta love it! You know there is a reason I like to clean, and this just proves my point! ~S.

P.S. No harm was done to the children during the production of this photography- the dirt is real and so is the child- but gasp! the two somehow blend so well... don't ya think? :oD And.. just for the record... it was an establishment that we like getting our children together for play dates... not to be confused with anyone's home.... :o*

Trying to Catch up...

So I know I am soooo behind- but in case you haven't figured out that we always, and I mean ALWAYS, have something going on, well, you will... Life Happens is my personal motto in life, because it does. It has been the busiest holiday week I think. But if delteting my site and starting over were not enough excitement for one person's life, we had to go and get struck by a total fluke lightening bolt which fried my motherboard in my brand new computer! But it was my fault I guess- hey, at least we weren't standing in church when it struck right? :o) I didn't have my computer in a surge protector- I had bought one with the intentions of plugging everything in it, but as usual, I get side tracked... So when life throws you lemons- no, don't make lemonade- cut them bad boys up for a margarita or a close rendition- right! I will be back on track as soon as my guy Trey(courtesy of Mrs. Molly- as was the gentleman who had me fixed up within a few hours... genious!) comes and fixes me up with CS3 and lightroom I will be back in the ball game. Hey I am down in the bottom of the 9th, but I have runners on bases- ready to bring em home! So bear with me as we take it one step and one story at a time! ~S.
