Wolfette 🕷

Phew! We survived the Monday after Spring Break! 6:30 came waaay fast, let me tell you! Today it was gorgeous outside, so of course I gave my plants a touch of attention!

Now before I go further, let me just say I have a Lab who doesn’t enjoy water & won’t chase ducks, but he has an impeccable sixth sense for spiders! Which is fitting because we have an abundance of them here & they give me the heebyjeebies! Gunner has saved my house from utter chaos a couple dozen times! He has learned the “spidddddder” shriek from both boys and myself!

Enough bragging on my spider killing dog…

So as I am moving a huge chunk of mud this MASSIVE wolf spider flies out! I scream and Gunner comes running to save the day! One sniff and a neck jerk later Gunner turns away from the spider! Wait what? The dog who will play with a dead spider for 30 minutes, flipping it in the air and all even knew this spider wasn’t to be messed with. UGH!

Then I notice it…it has a HUGE egg sac attached to it. She is in full on protection mode and wraps two of her back legs around the sac as Gunner is trying to get her. She must’ve let out that DO NOT MESS WITH MY BABIES scent or something!

Whatever she did made the spider loving dog turn the other direction! From now on I’m not in mama bear mode, I’m in mama wolf spider mode! Better back upppp!

*Yes, I did a maternity shoot with a wolf spider. Hush, don’t judge & book a session so I won’t be so bored 😂



Time & growth!

Do you believe that you can care TOO much about someone? I don’t mean your husband or your kids, but someone else who means the world to you, but that person isn’t necessarily a part of your everyday being?
If you are like me, God has blessed you with a heart that literally OVERFLOWS at times. I mean I have seen Deepwater Horizon a million times and I BAWL every single time. My mom has always told me, that I have the unique ability to place myself in someone’s situation or shoes and actually feel how they feel.

[ It’s a blessing & a curse to feel everything so completely]

Nevertheless, over the years I have learned that just because someone tells me something doesn’t mean I have to let it consume me. If they are sad, be sad with them, but when they are happy be happy with them too. That’s a struggle for me when it comes to people I love.

Ironic thing is, it’s like that with photography as well. Not everyone will understand your style. Not everyone will choose you. Not everyone will LOVE your photographs….but, that’s ok!

”Loving someone is like art. Photography is art. Art is meant to not be completely understood, but that doesn’t mean you stop creating. Keep creating. Keep loving.”

I recently cooked homemade bread for the first time. One thing is showed me was this…
All YUMMY (good) things take time & LOTS of LOVE (kneading)! LOL

*Recipe is Pioneer Woman & it’s PERFECTION!

2019 |The beginning|

Woah, the holidays were CRAZY! We ended up having 7….7 Christmas celebration. We were blessed & stressed to say the least. Nevertheless here we are, eight days into 2019! Here’s to waking up early, getting the kid to school late & resuming a non-existant schedule with my other two small ones.

They say that every photographer needs to find their “style”. Something to stick with when it comes to sessions, editing & posting. I have always struggled with “style” (LOL) I usually wear what I feel that day & edited how I feel that a particular image should look, but I have done it! I have found my “style” in editing my photographs! I simply LOVE each image I capture and edit lately! My style allows me to be consistant, which in turns allows my clients to be certain what “style” they are choosing!

Since having Rylan, I have picked up my camera a thousand times more often just to capture little moments of hers as well as her brothers! Little features, like chubby hands & two brand new teefers may seem like silly things to capture, but as a mother of a SIX year old, those chubby hands turn into slender hands & those two cute teefers turn into lots of teeth that smack when they eat! (GROSS)

I hope that my new outlook on little one’s & moments become something BIG for you! I pray that the things I capture for you and your family are photographs that make you smile, cry & laugh for years to come.

Here are some recent shots I got of Rylan (8 Months Old)
Her first time examining flowers, she was intrigued <3
