A Tribute To My Dear Friend

Six years ago my dearest friend went through one of the most painful times in her life. Her first born son, William, was born into heaven. My friend Amy is one of the most sweetest, kindest, Godliest women I have ever had the priviledge to know. When I first started in photography, she let me bumble, stumble, and practise on her three precious sons and these are some of my favorite portraits we took of them all. My favorite one of Amy has her holding the teddy bear that was to be Williams and we incorporated that bear in every one of their family portraits ever since. I miss my dear friend who has since moved away, but our friendship has the stuff that will keep us friends forever. I honor you today Amy, mother of 4 sons. You are blessed!

My Story

Ever since I was a little girl, my dream was to grow up to be a mama. I was the teenage girl who babysat every weekend and just loved every one's kids. I even had a couple of jobs being a nanny. August 15, 1991 my dreams finally came true with the birth of our first son. Having suffered a miscarriage before, our son's birth was a huge celebration for us as was our second son's birth May 14, 1993 and our daughter's, July 7th, 1995. Being a mother to these three children has been the greatest blessing God could ever give me and every Mothers Day, I try to get a photograph of all of us together. This particular photo, Mothers Day 1997, is one of my favorites because it shows me with all of my children. I was pregnant with our fourth child here, a tiny little boy named Zane, who sadly didn't live past 4 months of pregnancy. My passion for newborn photography and maternity portraiture stems from the emotions I have experienced and still experience from being Colten, Brody, Laressa and Zane's mother. It is so important to me that our lives are documented by photos and portraits because these are indeed amazing moments of our life. Happy Mothers Day to all of you special and wonderful ladies who are mothers. God Bless all of you!
