OMG! I'm so excited and proud to have been a part of this wonderful company, Pretty Pear Bride. If you have not heard of them, you have now. Check them out!
I feel so passionate about what Pretty Pear Bride stands for:
"So Pretty Pear Bride was started as a site where plus size brides can find bridal inspiration that they long for. Everyone wants to see people that look like them, doing what they are trying to do because it allows them to envision that they can be just as glamorous and gorgeous as they imagined. So my mission was clear: merge my love for blogging and wedding planning with creating a place for plus size brides to see themselves in wedding inspiration."

Being a plus size woman...NO...let me say this...being a woman "period" and yes with curves; I had a hard time finding a bridal gown that looked great on me, photography poses that accentuated my curves, and hair styles that fit my face. Sadly back in 2007, I did not have a resource guide to help me in my bridal journey. But TODAY, there is somewhere for curvy and beautiful women to go, Pretty Pear Bride. A place you can feel like you are at home! They know what you are going through and they are there to help you be the best bride ever!
This March, I was honored to be chosen to photograph the cover of Pretty Pear Bride Magazine! This was a great team effort. Please let me introduce the team.

So in looking around for a space/location for our "Easter Minis" coming up. My wonderful sis-in-law, D, introduced me to one of her life long friends and her great 4 children; Elizabeth, Noah, Luke and John. She offered to let me use her gorgeous land, but I had to scout it out. Well then, we decided on a session to promote the offer. So glad we did! We had a sunny and perfect day, lots of running space and plenty of cute props thanks to Mrs. A and her awesome collection of all things Easter and a friend from work, who has been hooking me up with oh so cute baby hats. Here's what we did...
I see beauty in all of the Lords wonderful creations. I want to capture them all through my camera.
