Oh what a beautiful day for a Wedding! March 1st, 2014

The weather called for 90 percent rain this day however, God smiled on this happy couples outdoor wedding and changed all that!
Thank you for letting me apart of this beautiful union.

This is their Love Story in Lauren’s words:
Tyler and I started dating when we were seniors in high school. We
did everything together. We became best friends. Tyler showed me his
love for hunting and fishing, and I began to love it too. It did not
take long for us to realize that God made us for each other. We never
argued about anything, life was so easy together. We survived five
years of college together. The week before my last final in college,
Tyler popped the big question. I was so surprised! I started planning
immediately. Eleven months after he proposed and a little over six
years since we began dating; we got married. It was the best day of
my life. It was truly a dream wedding. I know we will always be
together because we try our best to keep God in the center of our
relationship. Now, every day I get to come home to my best friend,
and I could not imagine life being any more perfect.

We chose Sonja Foshee and her team to be our photographer for our wedding simply
because she is the best! She is the most creative and most original
photographer I have ever seen. She helped make our special day even
better because now we have amazing pictures to remember every detail
of that great day!

A 30-passenger turbo prop departing from the Hattiesburg – Laurel Regional Airport set the stage for a real love story. Mark was taking his son to NYC, and Mary was headed to a meeting in Indianapolis. A promised post card and handwritten letter were the beginnings of a relationship built on trust, commitment, and grace. Over five years later, they celebrated their marriage at St. Peter’s By-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Gulfport, MS, on February 8, 2014.
I am among all men most richly blessed to witness the union of my brides and grooms new lives together. I am thankful they trust me to capture a tiny glimpse of the Wedding Day~

Winter Storm 2014

Good Friday Morning! My house is a mess, I’ve played outside with my son Levi for three days! And I pray he looks back on these days and sees a mother who took time to play.  There will be years for cleaning and cooking but children grow up when you’re not looking. 

You would of thought our Lucedale City Park was the Breckenridge Ski Resort.  We had clothes baskets, boogie boards, cardboard, anything we could find to slide down that icy slope! 

You don’t have to be the perfect parent and have it all together, kids are happy if you just go outside and watch them be superstars!

and there are places in the heart you don’t 

even know exist until you love a child….  Love & Happiness to you! ©Sonja Foshee

Time is so Precious

What is time management?

Time management is not really about how you manage time and its not really about tools and techniques. It’s about how you manage yourself.

Through the Years As a successful business owner and teacher of business I feel I have the right to give advice to my students and to you aspiring artist, (photographers).

I always have said, For every day you spend, for every minute you spend, photographing clients. This is  time away from YOUR FAMILY that you will never get back. How much is it worth to you? Something to ponder on today and everyday. 

Don’t be afraid to charge your family, friends, co-workers. When they go to “their” jobs they expect to get paid! Its ok to give discounts, trade outs etc. However You should NOT feel guilty for charging for your talents and time. 

Benjamin Franklin said it best- “Lost time is never found again.” 

Love and Happiness to you all!
