welcome home






this was the most humbling experience i have had in a very long time. the bravery of the dad to fight for our country, and the bravery of the mom to raise a little guy practically at home is so moving to me. i get discouraged when i haven't seen my kids in a few hours, he hasn't seen his son since christmas. wow...

blessings to you guys.

The Fortenberrys






i will be posting more from another session from this family soon. all i can say is they are my heros.

The Corley's at the beach








i have photographed this family so many times and each time it becomes more and more special. when i started shooting them #3 was just a tiny little baby and to see these guys grow up is so special to me. about a month before this shoot, we discovered that we would be on vacation at the same time, so we had to sneak in a shoot! since this shoot they have moved to jackson, ms so i am not sure how many more times i will get to photograph them which makes me very sad! best of luck to you guys!

The Thomasmeyers





i love these 3 people!
