        Allie + Cody – Senior Prom 2014 – Lake City, Fl Photographer

        Meet Allie & Cody. These two are sooo adorable!! When Allie called me, she was wanting something a little different than everyone else’s prom pictures. We found a location that was unique and magical and went to shooting. They were so easy to shoot!! OH and did I mention that Allie’s talented too? She customized her dress to make it her own by adding the beautiful chiffon layers that are at the bottom of her dress flowing out! and probably some other things I’m missing. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I did making them!

         Meet the beautiful Kayleigh D, a future graduate of Columbia High’s Class of 2014. I had so much fun on her Father’s hunting property exploring, crossing through creeks, getting stuck in the mud (yep! you should have seen her Step Mom’s car after Kayleigh’s Dad rescued it! haha) and finding untouched beauty to photograph her in. This beautiful girl is so sweet and was such a pleasure to photograph!! Congratulations Kayleigh on your accomplishments, I know your parents are so proud of you!!! !

        The Magic Hour Foundation – Charitable portrait sessions for cancer patients and survivors.


        So, I wanted to introduce you to the Magic Hour Foundation. I have been a member of the Magic Foundation for almost a year now and have yet to have to take any portraits for them. I can hope that means we don’t have anyone suffering from cancer in our area but sadly, I know that is farthest from the truth as I have discovered a few friends and family members suffering through this horrible disease.

        I ran into the Magic Hour Foundation at PPA’s Imaging USA in Atlanta in January. They were on one of the very last rows and I almost turned around to leave before going down their aisle but, something tugged me that way. As I walked up curious and asked “What’s this all about?” I learned that this amazing foundation was created for cancer patients both currently undergoing treatment and survivors. Really? How great was this?! A foundation of Photographers who are willing to give their time free of charge to photograph some of life’s precious memories for those who have struggled and conquered or are currently struggling with this disease that seems to be a more and more common occurrence.

        The first person I thought of when they told me what the foundation is, would be my sister. You see, she was one of the lucky ones. She was diagnosed with pre cancer which quickly turned into stage 4 in a matter of months. She kept putting off the treatment, thinking she didn’t have full blown cancer, what was the rush? Until one day a family member’s friend passed away from cancer. That tragedy kicked her into getting the treatment! Thank God she did finally have the procedures done when she did because, that was when they discovered it had changed and grown to stage 4 that quickly. The doctors were able to get everything and she was cleared and might I add, she felt great! She had gotten her energy back and felt like a new person. Of course, she has to follow up every so often to make sure it doesn’t return.

        Unfortunately, not everyone is so lucky. I thought… what can I do to help these people? Well, I’m not a doctor. I can’t heal them but, I can do my small part. That’s where joining Magic Hour came into play. I love to do anything I can to help people. In fact, that’s why I became a member of our local chapter of Altrusa. Any way that I can give back to the community, I will.

        With Magic Hour, that means using my talents to capture memories for those suffering from cancer. I know they are out there and I wanted to let you all know about this awesome foundation. If you know someone who is suffering or is a survivor, I totally would love for you to fill out an application nominating them for a Free portrait session. I would be honored to play a part in creating memories for them if they are in my area but, they don’t have to be in Lake City….we have photographers located all over the country.

        Tomorrow is not promised for anyone and pictures are something we all should have. Doesn’t have to be cancer…. things come up in life. I truly believe whether it be professional or candid shots, make sure you have pictures to hold onto. I know if I was to go tomorrow, my children will have images of me that they can hold onto and share with their children and so on and so forth.
