Jade and I go way back.
For those of you who don’t know, I taught Junior High Science/Yearbook at Cornerstone Christian Academy in Tillar for 6 years. I was doing my photography part-time while teaching, but took that leap of faith to go full time in my photography business December 2014.
Jade was in my first 7th grade science class. She was sweet, quiet, and had such a gentle spirit about her. There wasn’t a time that she didn’t have her homework, and whatever I asked of her she always came through 110%. She’s dependable, trustworthy, and just an all-around good kid.
Jade has blossomed into such a gorgeous young woman. I have to admit though, I was a little sad looking through her images, because in my mind she’s still my little ‘baby Jade’ from 7th grade. I can only imagine how her parent’s feel!
I can’t wait to show you Jade and her parent’s favorites. Always reach for the stars, Jade!
This sweet little firecracker has a birthday next month, so why not have a red, white, and blue themed birthday party?! She is the sweetest, cuddliest (if that’s not a word, I made it a word just for her lol) little girl and will steal your heart in a split-second! She knows how to use those sparkling blue eyes to charm ya! Also, it was such an honor to photograph 4 generations of Files/Hughes women! It’s a photo that will be cherished every time they see it in their home ❤
Happy (early) Birthday baby girl!
Sweet baby Emmett came to the studio last week for his newborn session, and although we tried every trick in the book, he did not want to sleep at all lol! His mama blamed it on their big family, and the fact that he’s so loved that he doesn’t get to lay down much. He was wide awake almost the entire time, except for a few sleepy ‘let me close my eyes for a second’ shots, but I couldn’t love them more. Emmett has the sweetest, laid back personality, and as you can tell from some of the shots, a big appetite! He gnawed on his hands almost the entire time, and believe me, his mama made sure his little belly was full. We were even able to get a special shot for his daddy, who is a lineman for Entergy. Emmett thought he needed to show out for his daddy a little in one shot, too, by flexing. I hear his big brother, Gray, is doing an amazing job at keeping him happy. Gray even comes in to check on him every little bit when he’s playing outside. I know those two will share a special bond as they grow ❤ Scroll through these precious portraits and see just how sweet this new baby is.
