Hi, It’s me and this is  bitty. I’m not sure yet what I am supposed to do with her  but Mom says I have to share my chair so here we are! Mosty the bitty sleeps and eats and sleeps some more. Maybe someday she will be able to ride bikes with me. But for […]

I love photographing Artists!  Here’s why.  They appreciate composition, color, movement, light and the list goes on.   Taking the Wheeler family photos on a regular basis has been one of the greatest blessings. Not only do I love their faces but watching these kids grown over time is such a sweet journey.  Little Edie was […]

I was so happy that Jessie and Chad wanted to have their photos taken in the orchard.  I love this time of year.  It was so fun to see how genuine they were about being together. They have known each other since high school, just like me and my hubby!  Its so fun that even […]
