Recently I have been thinking about marriage and what contributes to longevity in relationships. Though there are many reasons, I have concluded that one thing which is incredibly important is appreciation. It seems that conflict increases between people when they begin to slack in appreciation for the other. Which led me to the thought of how much I appreciate Wesley. He is absolutely trustworthy. He tells me all the time how much I mean to him and that he thinks I am a great mom. I am infinitely more confident because of his influence in my life. Among many, many reasons why I respect him, I am en-heartened and inspired by how he continues to pursue, without ever losing the boys' and my amelioration, not a quick and easy path, but a way that develops his God-given abilities and skills into something more mature for the glory of God. I have no doubt in my mind of what beauty the Lord will bring (and is bringing) about through my husbands noble pursuits. Happy birthday, love. You are the best.

Oh, my gosh. I LOVE this video. My husband found it tonight and showed me. This is absolutely us. I wish we had created it. And in honor of my sister & brother-in-law (who are having their first tomorrow!), I present to you, The Swagger Wagon.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I love this couple. Casey and Erin's wedding was loads of fun with awesome special touches of their favorites, like glass bottle Cokes. Please enjoy!
Casey & his brother Jody were singing lyrics they made up to other songs that were HILARIOUS!

The adorable baby Ben's portrait session was at his home in Louisiana. We had a great time playing around and discovering little treasures all over, inside and out. Ben's age is such a fun age because everything is something new and exciting to play with!

We did Alex's bridals recently at her in-law's beautiful antebellum home in Natchez. Alex and her now husband, Collin, are such a funny couple. Behind the scenes, Collin was showing her poses to do by acting them out! I think he did a great job! ;o)
Look at those Gorgeous doe eyes!

I had the pleasure of photographing one of my dearest friends. Caroline is amazingly beautiful, and equally as talented of a dancer & a singer. We met in kindergarten where I'm sure I pinched her. (Yes, I was one of those.) I am so happy for she & Matt for their newest adventure: Stella. I can't wait to meet her!
Funny trivia: we shot this the DAY BEFORE she delivered! Notice the bags literally packed by the door.
There was this random grungy mattress floating right next to us in the water! It must have been swept away in a gust from the large bridge nearby!
