A Moonstone Manor Anniversary Session

Paige & Jesse

And a letter to my darling Emma Grace. I just wanna say on the outset here, that I have been so blessed by, not only our real life friends, but also my online audience. For as ugly as my story sometimes was, people have been kind. Most people don’t know most of the story, not […]

Emma’s Fresh 48

And where has the time all gone? Someday i wanna show you Emma’s 48 hour photos. Her and i are both radiantly beautiful and happy as if God himself reached down into that hospital and gave me an angel to rejoice over. She has always been a good baby. I called her my “angel baby” […]
