Had the privilege to photograph the Ladipo guys this weekend at Barrett Park for their holiday photos and truly enjoyed every aspect of it. They are truly a handsome bunch and a great family with genuine love and respect for one another.

OH TO BE A DADDY’S GIRL
It’s been 21 years since my father passed away yet I felt from the time I was born I never knew him. I had his initials and his last name but not his heart nor his attention. Truth is: I have always wanted to be a Daddy’s girl.

I sat on the front row last Sunday as I usually do. My ears perked up and my body perched in my chair longing to hear what God would say to His people through the sermon. Wesley, the preacher and my husband, started his monologue. A dissertation of sorts for the next steps in the life of the church. Read more
Oh The Hard Things!!!
There are so many of us that feel like we are in a place of “stuckness” with God. We find ourselves questioning our identity, our place, and our purpose.
