Thank you! Thank you Douek Family! I had an amazing time with you all. I can’t wait to see you all again! I hope everyone has an amazing day!

Our little Byrd today.

Looks like Lila Byrd did not get the memo on my Mothers Day wish for her to not grow up so fast…

To the wonderful mothers in my life,  thank you for all your continued love and support. It really does take a  village! A very special thanks to Mimi and Nana for being my role models and mothers I can always lean on and  learn from.

Happy Mothers Day!!!

My baby brother is gettng married this weekend!!!


We had the best time photographing Jeremy and Ashley’s Engagement portraits a while ago down at Sunset Beach where they live!

I will let their contagious love and joy just speak for itself.


As a sister I could not have picked a more beautiful, a more loving, or a more perfect best friend for my brother.


Can you tell Jeremy is head over heels for Ashley…

So words of advice to my smitten little brother…love each other more and more each day. Do not take any second for granted. Hold hands and kiss often. Travel.  Hold your new wife dear to you and always keep her close to your heart because marrying your soul mate is one of the greatest gifts God gives us.

We love you and adore you both! Now let’s get Lila’s fancy headband packed and get you two married!

I first had the honor of photographing Hunter way back in 2008 when he was a little fellow!

And then again in 2009-my Hunter man was cute as ever!

And guess what 2010 brought Hunter? A sweet baby brother!

I recently got the chance to meet my newest Privette. Meet the adorable and super photogenic Carson.

Hunter was so cute telling me all about his new little brother and all the fun they had together.

Can’t you just tell this family knows how to have some fun!

Thanks Privette Family for including ABP in all the family moments, memories, and fun! Until next time…
