It's time for fall mini-sessions!  Currently, I'm scheduling mini-sessions at Rowan Oak in Oxford on Sunday, October 3.  

This is a great time to get your Christmas card picture taken or just fun, casual photos of your family or children.

The mini-sessions are one price ($125), and you get three options:
1.  25 custom holiday greeting cards
2.  1 digital image file
3.  1 - 8x10, 2 - 5x7 and 8 - wallets

Email me to reserve your spot!  They are filling up quickly.

Please pass the word!  If you refer someone and they book with me, you will each receive a FREE 8x10!

A mini-session lasts 25 minutes (they are scheduled every half hour).  Session times will not be extended if you are late.  Fee must be paid prior to session to reserve date and time.  Fee is non-refundable and non-transferable.

Victoria and Tripp Parker: Jackson, MS Wedding Photographer

I promised I would get a sneak peak of Victoria and Tripp's wedding on my blog by today. I couldn't be more pleased with some of the pictures we were able to capture. Victoria and Tripp were incredible to work with. It was sweltering hot (I mean, it is July in Mississippi), but they were great about taking pictures outside. We would go in to cool off and then go back outside to do some more.

Their reception was at the Fairview Inn. Have I mentioned how much I love the Fairview? Peter Sharp is great to work with. People threw bio-degradable paper (that looked like snow) as they left.

At the end of the night, someone asked Victoria if her wedding was everything she wanted. She replied by saying, "It was a dream." I think everyone's wedding should be that way!

Lindsey and Ben: Columbus, MS wedding photographer

Will and I had a great time at Lindsey and Ben's wedding this past weekend. Lindsey is beautiful and sweet, and Ben is just a down to earth guy.

Here are just a few of my favorites from their wedding day.

Garrison's monthly pictures

So I'm behind on posting Garrison's monthly pictures. I can't believe he is already 4 1/2 months old. He's such a sweet baby. Will and I feel blessed to be home with him all day. Granted, it's hard to get a lot of work done (he only naps for 30 minutes at a time).

There have been several things that have happened that made me realize he is MINE and I'm not just babysitting. I know that realization comes at different times for different people. It happened for me the first time I changed his diaper in a public restroom (McAlisters). The first time we took him to church and dropped him off at the nursery was a bit strange. They handed me a tag with a number, and we had to have that tag to pick him back up. I was a bit apprehensive about leaving him in the nursery, but we knew the lady who took makes it a lot easier to hand your child over to someone you know. (I'm also really glad his number didn't flash on the screen during the service). I think it's also a reality check every time I open my purse and there is a diaper inside!

Garrison loves music. He sings himself to sleep. It's really sweet. He loves the itsy bitsy spider and anything Will makes up that has Barbara in it.

When he stretches, he sticks his arms and legs straight out and his body makes an X. We say, "X marks the spot." Somehow, his nickname has become "booger."

We love him.

Stacy and Stephen

I am so happy to share some of Stacy and Stephen's wedding images. Will and I had a great time traveling to the coast to photograph their wedding. The church was a beautiful Catholic church where Stephen's parents were married.

I was able to document one of the sweetest things ever. Stacy's mom has passed away. Her step mother found a picture of Stacy's mom on her wedding day and gave it to Stacy. It was sweet and emotional. I cried, which is not surprising. Stacy carried the picture in her bouquet as she walked down the aisle.

Anders: Oxford, MS

Meredith is beautiful, classy, smart (she's an Ob-Gyn) and PREGNANT!!! And Will and I are super excited because Garrison will have a sweet cousin just five months younger than him to play with. Anderson Gray Griffin will be here in August and we can't wait to meet him. I hope he has tons of red hair, Meredith's smile, and Josh's sense of humor. We know Polly is going to be a great big sister!

Allison and Jamie: Oxford, MS wedding photographer

They say that rain on your wedding day brings good luck. I'm not sure who "they" are, and I'm not sure I believe in luck. But after Jamie and Allison's wedding, I do believe in the value of wedding planners. It STORMED the day of Allison and Jamie's wedding (It stormed so badly, lighting hit my parent's air conditioner and fried about it being HOT!!!). It literally rained until about 15 minutes before the ceremony started. Allison had to make some last minute decisions - like if she should rent a tent or not - but she didn't have to worry about the details because of her incredible wedding planner Claire Kiamie. Will and I were talking after the wedding - the day could have been a disaster, but it turned out perfectly. Kim worked her rear end off, but Allison and Jamie were able to enjoy their wedding without having to stress over details.

Jamie absolutely ADORES Allison. You can see it in his eyes when he looks at her. You can hear it in his voice when he talks about her. You can see it in the way he treats her. When Allison walked down the aisle towards him to become his wife, you could see Jamie's smile through his tears.

It was such an honor to be a part of your special day!
