Ok, so I’m the worst blogger in the world!  I know it’s been a while…  I’ve had quite a few weddings in the past few months and decided to just post them all together.  To see more of my work, please visit my site: www.mysouthernmemories.com Enjoy!

You may recognize Amanda from a boudoir shoot I did last year…. or you may not =)  She has lost over 100 lbs and looks great!  Her husband is in the Army and was deployed to Afghanistan last year, which was why she did the boudoir shoot for him.  Now, he’s back and she’s looking great so they needed to update their family pictures.  I’m so happy they chose me to do this! =)  We had so much fun during our last shoot because Amanda is so funny and has an infectious laugh, you can’t help but have fun with her.  I can see why this couple was made for each other, he is just like her!  They are the cutest couple!  They goofed off and we got some amazing shots.  I also met their son Aiden this time, he is adorable and 100% boy.  Amanda’s mom and dad even got in on the picture taking.

After the family pictures, we got a chance to get some couple time in.  It sprinkled on us and the sun shined a little but we just kept on going.  They didn’t care that it was sprinkling on and off, we just kept having fun.  Finally after a couple of hours of shooting and TONS of pictures, we were done.  Just in time too!  It started raining while we were on the way back to our cars.  Thank you Byrd family for letting me capture your memories!  I had a blast and can’t wait to do it again.

As you can see, I couldn’t just choose a few pics to post there were so many good ones!

Moments ago I looked outside to see the first snow of the year!  Keeping in mind that I am in Louisiana & it won’t stick but it puts me in the holiday spirit anyway. =)

I am now taking appointments!!!  I was out of the picture for a while due to medical reasons but I am doing great and ready to get back to work! 

Over the Thanksgiving holiday I had a few sessions with my sisters, which turned out great!  I also had a session with an old friend Amy and her fiance Andy.  It was so much fun & I couldn’t have asked for better weather!   Here’s a sample of the sessions…

Ok, I know that I haven’t posted a blog in a while… sorry!  To play catch up I’m posting a couple of collages just to let you in on a little bit of what I’ve been up to.

This is Eleigha, Sean and thier daughter McKenzie.  We had a great time in downtown just walking around and snapping some pics.  Thanks for letting me capture part of your life.  I’m excited to take some pics of the new baby boy!!!

Also, the beautiful brunette is Emily.  My neice will be a senior next year and we have been taking some senior pics when we get a chance.  These were taken in Prattville, Alabama when we went home to see Courtney’s family.  She’s growing up and will be leaving for college in a year.  =(   She’ll be ok though, she’s smart and got a good head on her shoulders.

This is Tonia.  Isn’t she BEAUTIFUL!!!  Well, I’m kinda bias… but she is!  Tonia is my bestest friend in the whole wide world!  We have been best friends since freshman year in high school.  She’s an amazing woman and I love her.

She did our boudior shoot in May and she was so easy to work.  She has natural beauty.  So, here’s my beautiful best friend! =)

Ok, I know that I’m WAY behind on blogging so I’m playing catch up!  Here are some pics of Micheal, Chelsea and thier cousin Adrienne at the Tulip Farm in Wisner.  It was so pretty out there and made for a great setting!

Sorry for being MIA lately but I’m playing catch up with my blog! 

On St. Patrick’s Day I had so much fun with two beautiful and playful girls, Brenna & Baylor!  These girls were running and playing all over Beidenharn.  Making them sit still was not possible.  That was fine with me, I just ran along with them, along with Brandy and Brandon (the proud parents) we were able to keep up with them most of the time.  Enjoy!

This weekend we took a trip to Alabama to visit Courtney’s family…..  Ok let me stop right here and explain that there are 2 of us, both named Courtney, I’m Courtney Sorensen and she is Courtney Dozier.  Anyway, the trip was good but as always, too short!  The stay, not the drive, lol.  We had a good drive down Friday, we stopped in Jackson to have Debra and Anna keep the babies.  THANK YOU!  Then off to Prattville.  We didn’t get there until about 1:30am.  Saturday we shopped around town a little then went to Courtney’s dad’s house.  The food was GREAT, the company even better!  We took some family pics and had fun playing with her nephew and opening presents.  All and all, even though it was a long trip, it was a good one.  We always enjoy spending time with her family.  Just wish we all lived closer so we could do it more often.  A big Thank You to Dora for all of the great food… and I’m going to need that cake recipe for my own collection. =)

Ok, so I finally got my internet installed yesterday.  I can now upload some pics to show off some of my work.  These are pictures from family Christmas shoots and my family at Thanksgiving. 

I have to thank Missy for always helping and keeping me laughing.  We work together everyday all week and then after work or on the weekends we are shooting all over town.  We have had a ton of fun and look forward to 2009 to have even more adventures.  We work great together and have a lot of fun doing it.  We also have a ton different ideas.  Between the both of us we can do amazing things! 

Hope you like the preview of my work and come back often and check out what’s going on.  Don’t forget, if you want to schedule a setting, just drop me a line and we will see what you have in mind.  I’m up for just about anything.  Have a Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year!
