3 years ago, Eddie was mine and my husbands best friend , who hadn't found his match, and honestly it was driving me crazy to see him so sad and feeling lonely. He just kept meeting the wrong women. I decided to step in and begin a search for him for someone I would approve (because I only want the best for my friends). I made a public facebook post in search of a lucky lady (without putting any details about him nor his photo). Although he did let me take a awesome photo of him to share with any lucky ladies that were approved for phase 1 of the search. 

At that time, Valerie was my daughter's ballet teacher. Surprisingly , Valerie messaged me saying she was interested in knowing more , and that she was ready to get back into the dating scene. I told her a little bit about him and sent her his photo. Her reply was... " I think I know him". Well long story short, he dated her roommate, and they secretly had a crush on each other. Valerie and Eddie decided to give it a shot and have their first official date.

The longer they dated , the more and more infatuated they were with each other, and overtime the love they had could be spotted from miles away. Eddie asked me to help him prepare the perfect proposal. He wanted a gazebo with lights to create a romantic setting. He set a date  when he planned to propose, well it just so happened that it was when we had that massive night snow storm in Tuscaloosa. That didn't stop him! Nor me! I just had to drive 5 mph on the interstate. 

As I hid in the dark at CL Salon 's in Tuscaloosa AL patio deck, with snow piling up on me,  my speaker played "Flightless Bird, American Mouth", and the nearby neighbors around the salon wondered what the heck I was doing... Mr. Pacman , under romantically lit gazebo, got down on one knee, and asked Valerie if she would become "Mrs Pacman".

She she yes of course !

Their Wedding ceremony and reception was absolutely beautiful ! They were officially Mr & Mrs Pacman!

Family Portrait Sessions

When was the last time you've had your family portraits taken?? Do you have a current family portrait hanging as a centerpiece to your living room or anywhere in the house? More than likely no... I have been guilty of this way too many times! My little one is growing and our family portrait in our living room is one from almost 2 years ago! It's easy to get busy with life, i understand. But I want you to take 1 hour of your day to spend it with those you love them most, and let me click away while you have fun together as a family! No phones, no tablets, no tvs. Just you, and your family. 

One of my favorite type of sessions, is family portrait sessions. I just love capturing real, unposed interactions families have with each other! Especially when all distractions of the technological world are out of the picture. 

Lets go ahead and plan your late summer, and fall family portrait session! Family portrait sessions can take place anywhere in Tuscaloosa, Birmingham and surrounding areas. Contact me to schedule your family portrait sessions.
