Thanks so much for stopping by! Make yourself at home and take a few minutes to find out a little about my crazy little world!


Pattie & Michael | Alabama Wedding Photography

I've known Pattie for a long time... we first met at BBC, I don't remember a specific 'meeting' because it seems like she's just always 'been there'... her kiddos, Kennedy and Casey, were on Next Generation (BBC's kid's expressive worship team) for a couple of years, and her oldest daughter, Nekeshia would chase and aggravate Blake by telling him that he was her boyfriend!

Pattie and Michael actually met a long time ago, as she said when I asked who she was dating, "You wouldn't know him, he's from 'back home'." They actually dated 'back in th day'... then life happened and they went their separate ways... but now here they are, several years down the road, their paths cross again, but this time, it's for keeps.

Pattie's cousin had a blanket made of one of Nekeshia's senior portraits.
She was beautiful outside and inside... she's greatly missed.

Kennedy has always been a beautiful girl, but now she's a gorgeous young lady!

Bless his heart, Casey has had to grow up in a house full of girls...
he's definitely tried to keep 'em straight! Ain't he just a cutie patootie?!

The cake and decorations were just beautiful!

I love it when couples choose to do a "First Look"! It's so sweet to see their expressions
and such an intimate time for the bride and groom to settle their nerves about the ceremony!

It's always a great time to check for b.o. too...

Casey and his sisters gave her away... so precious!!

I was so blessed to hear the wedding vows they wrote...
Pattie expressed how grateful that Michael had come back into her life
and thanked him for being a shoulder to cry on over the last year,
as she has dealt with Nekeshia's tragic car accident.

Michael told her that he loves her "more than a fat kid loves chocolate cake"... As I watched them on their wedding day, I was so excited to see my friend so in love with the one that has made her life complete.

"At Last...."

Michael is such a mess!

Congratulations and best blessings my friends!! I love you!!

My new friend...

I have no idea what to write about tonight, besides the fact that I'm ready to head to bed and I can't for two reasons... 1. because my baby boy is laying asleep in my lap... and 2. because I'm glued to this computer because of blogs such as Jasmine Star and Live in the Name of Love and Natalie Norton... I love those girls...

The first reason is very peaceful and wonderful, because well... he's my velcro-baby. That's his nick-name from when he was a baby and toddler and he wanted to be on my hip 24/7. Something he still does to this day is rub the back of my arm when he's sleepy... Trey used to rub my earlobe... I guess every kid has something that sends them straight to sleepyland... I played with my hair, ok, I still do... ANYWHO... having him sleeping on my lap is so sweet.

The second reason... oh, well, those are my guilty pleasure everyday. Yes, everyday. Jasmine and Bianca are twin sisters... Jasmine is a ROCKIN' wedding photographer from California and Bianca is a public speaker... actually, a 'real' Christian woman that LOVES the Lord and is trying hard to make sure that the whole world hears about Him! Natalie is actually the first blogger that I ever followed... she is a FANTASTIC family photographer from Hawaii. I first blogged about Jasmine and Natalie here and I've been stalking, er... following them for over a year... A few months ago, I found Bianca on Jasmine's blog... she's now been added to my daily rotation! :-)

So, without further ado... I'd like to introduce my newest friend (can I still say that even though she doesn't know it? yes, I vote yes.) Ladies and gentlemen... please put your hands together and your mouse on this link to welcome... Bianca Juarez!
