Last month’s request for a deserving family introduced me to so many fun families who are amazing and really DESERVE a beautiful family portrait!! Of course I know how hard finances are right now and knew I’d have heart wrenching stories. But I wasn’t prepared for a few of the incredible folks I would “meet” through loving family and friends who nominated them. One family really stuck out to me-

This is the story of an amazing woman who married the man of her dreams. They had two little boys and were as happy as any family could be. He was a good diver and on a fairly routine dive he was tragically killed. This incredible mom was “comforting others” her sister said as the family gathered to support her. Although time helps heal hearts, she has felt uneasy about a family photo as her family is really not complete.  Recently she decided that her boys deserve these memories and that they are to celebrate the life they are living with their dad as their guardian angel. How else can others remember him unless they see him through those little boys eyes as they become like their father.

I’m so touched and excited to photograph this family! Thank you to her loving sister for nominating her! I can’t wait to spend time with both families!

1. Email me the name of a family who deserves a FREE mini photo session and WHY

2. Include your name and phone number

3. Post this graphic on your blog or facebook and leave me a comment here so I know to enter you into the drawing.

4. One deserving family AND the person who nominated them for every 10 entries will win a FREE mini photo session and 11X14 print! And another winner will be drawn from those who post the graphic!!


Speaking of FREE sessions, the winner from the What Woman Want expo was an adorable gal from out of town. We have tried and tried to coordinate schedules and they are just not working for anytime soon.  So while we figure it all out, I decided to draw another name…and the winner is….

Peggy Duncan

Congratulations Peggy! I’m so excited to get together with you!!

I’m feverishly editing scrumptious Easter photos from Tuesday and have 6 more sessions tonight! They filled up fast and I added as many extras as I could yet I’m still getting requests…sooooooo…. I’m going to open up 1 more evening for those who still want to do them.

Here is one little sneak peak … here’s what most of my little friends are thinking as I’m telling jokes, making faces, and hoping to catch the perfect shot!!
