About Me

My photo
Welcome to my blog. I'm a Mississippi country girl transplanted to Grapevine, TX. I have been blessed with a great husband, and my kiddos, Aleck and Ella. When I'm not eating bon bons on the couch, I am my kid's room mom, PTA member, Sunday School teacher, taxi driver, amateur photographer and personal chef. When I'm not doing those things, I'm running a small jewelry business, 2nd Amendment Jewelry (www.2ndamendmentjewelry.com), that I started with my twin sister, Glenda. It's a crazy and busy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life!

Daddy Daughter Dance

St. Vincent’s School joined with the church to have their first Daddy Daughter Dance.  I was so honored when they asked if I would take the pictures.  I have been taking pictures of my family for years, but this is the first time I have taken pictures for someone else.  I was so nervous and I made no less than 4 trips to the church in search of the perfect light.

I took pictures of 35 fathers with their little girls.  Overall, I was really pleased with how the pictures turned out.  Out of respect for their privacy, I’m not going to blog any pictures other than my own family.    



After the dance was over, we took advantage of the rental backdrop for some family pictures.

I couldn’t have done it without Dede’s help.  We had so much fun!  We have talked for years about starting our own photography business some day.  Who knows, this may be the beginning of something good.
