No Such Thing As Perfect | Personal My Family

No Such Thing As Perfect | Personal My Family

Maybe it goes without saying that no one is perfect. I can’t tell you how many times the moms I photograph pick themselves apart in their photos.

Let me be the first to say…
I am NOT comfortable in front of the camera.
I’m not happy with my body after three kids….
my hair is frizzy and the humidity in the south won’t let me forget it…
and let’s not mention the double chin which no matter how hard I try..I just can’t hide!


Just like I tell all of those women I photograph, you can NOT let it stop you from getting in front of the camera with your family. No matter how hard I may want to pick apart my body in these images, I can’t!! The reason why you might ask….
Because when I look at these photos,

I see the man I prayed for and all of our hopes and dreams that we talked over for hours at the age of 16 and 18.

I see the answered prayers with our beautiful 3 children after a battle with infertility that still has scars and wounds yet healed…


I see love, laughter, hope, and a journey where our story as a family is being written everyday…


A huge thank you to Landon Jacob for capturing our family! I have admired and been inspired by their work for years and it was such a dream come true to meet Jordan.
I will treasure these images forever.

Now comes the hard part in deciding which ones to print for our new wall gallery! So glad I have a HUGE wall to fill up and no doubt it will be covered with these beautiful images of the ones I love!

And to see how much my family has grown, checkout this session with Julie Paisley from almost 2 years ago! The days are long but the years truly are short….
