Happy Friday

I'm going to the PPO tomorrow and I'm super excited! If there are any photographers out there that's interested in going I'd love for you to join us! First speaker we are checking out is David Jay... 8:00AM. My friends that are reading this are most likely laughing there buts off because they know that I don't get up until after 9:30 everyday:0). I'm going to try really hard to get up at 6:30 {hahaha} I have two alarms set and my friend Shell is going to call at 6:30.

One more thing I want to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY Camille!!! So cool...your birthday is on Leap Day. How unique and special:)
See all my peeps bright and early!

2008 Booked

This is the fastest I have ever booked up! It's only March which is very exciting but this means that I cannot photograph anymore weddings this year. Please don't hesitate to email me for referrals. This year I've met so many amazing photographers and would love to pass along their info to you.

Also, for those of you getting married in 2009, the calendar is open and I am now accepting commissions for 2009 dates. I book anywhere from to a year or more in advance so don't hesitate to reserve your date now. My goal for 2009 is to devote specialized attention to my couples, I have some exciting things planned:) With this I will only be accepting a very limited number of weddings. Email me for an appointment & lets see if we are the perfect fit!

I am truly honored and humbled by how quickly my business has grown and I want to say thank you so much for all my wonderful clients that have refered me time and time again. Word of mouth is the best form of advertising. Thank you & hugs!! ~T

Love Story Contest

Thank you so much to everyone who entered my contest. I hope you all had as much fun writing them as I did reading them. The one that touched my heart the most was Melissa & Travis. The last part of the letter did me in....

We now have two amazing boys together and everyday when Travis comes home they run to the door screaming DADDY DADDY DADDY! It's like a beautiful song that I never want to end. You see just a Travis was a wonderful boyfriend and husband, now he is an amazing daddy and for all of this he is my hero.

(sniff-sniff) That was beautiful Melissa. Please email me your mailing address:)

I just came across some funny pictures that we took in California:0)
How the heck did he do that?

Have you ever laughed so hard you cried? This was one of those times for me. Poor little guy!
Yep that's a real person...
This guy was just walking down the street...

My Pilot:)

Many years ago I lived beside a small airport when Lee and I were dating. He had dreamed of being a pilot ever since he was a little boy, so he started taking lessons and became a private pilot. Well 10 years later Lee decided he would like to get paid for this sweet hobby;) He is in Texas right now and taking his final commercial checkride's kind-of-a-big-deal so I wanted to share and to tell him how proud we are. No doubt you will do great!!! xoxo

.Go Daddy!!!

He is so talented! Plays the piano {fabulous} ...sings....

Most importantly an amazing dad and husband. I'm so grateful for everything we have together.

Miss and love you,
