happy holidays!!! (portrait special!!)

Tomorrow, as we stuff our faces with 4800 calories of nap inducing deliciousness….and for others, tofurkey – we begin a most sacred season. A season of “family togetherness”, caroling, parties, and the latest cover of “The Little Drummer Boy” (powerful). And despite some of the terrible music, we LOVE this time of year!! To celebrate the greatest Holiday season of the year, we’re offering a special on portrait sessions. one hour, one parsons, one 8×10, one hundred dollars.  There will be so many fun pictures to choose from, and you can feel free to purchase as many as you want on top of that package when you look at your online ordering gallery.  This special will only run until December 23rd, so jump on it!  Book now, use anytime in the next 6 months!!blog-front-page

Portrait sessions are for anyone who wants to see themselves through the parsons lens. So, get creative with your christmas gifts this year and use it for your favorite couple, your favorite family, yourself: pictures of you with your baby bump, new baby, or just you being awesome, an indie session for your high school senior – whatever. Gift certificates are available (see above design). Call or email us ( to schedule!

This Holiday Season, give the gift of smiles.

And, if I ever say that phrase again, punch me in the face.

Torie + David : Engaged!

There aren’t enough words in the dictionary to describe how awesome torie and david are. We met them last year when they were in the small group we lead at our church, and we are so thankful that we did. on top of getting to share life with them as friends, they have invited us into their lives as their photographers. we cannot wait to go to Mexico with them and some very other beautiful people and share in their wedding day. torie and david, we love you, and thank you for being beautiful, wonderful, funny, kind, and real with us all the time. here are a few of my personal favorites from their engagement session by my wonderful husband – beware…there were too many to choose from!!!

We have been so blessed to know both Dave and Torie since they were small; Torie since her birth and Dave since he was 6 years old. These two beautiful individuals coming together as one is beyond words. These pictures are awesome and say it all. Congratulations to you both. You are beautiful together!!!!
