Some of my favorite people! One of my brothers and his adorable family. Is everyone ready for Christmas? I don't have my tree up yet! But I'm almost finished shopping and all the gifts I have so far are wrapped! Tree is going up tomorrow. xo Josi Continue reading

We got together to do some family shots for Christmas, but got this one of just my brother and his lovely wife. It was a gorgeous fall day. Thanks for looking! xo Josi Continue reading

This little darlin' was so much fun to photograph...she was stingy with her smiles, but didn't fuss at all. This age can be a little difficult for getting variety since they're past the "bendable" baby stage, but not quite sitting up yet. Nevertheless, we got some sweet shots for sure!... Continue reading

So we all know I'm a little bit nerd... After obsessing about my colors for almost a year, I finally had the opportunity to get an analysis done. There aren't so many analysts around, as you might think. One with a great reputation, Heather Noakes, traveled from Roseville, CA to... Continue reading

Wow, I feel accomplished today! I've organized all the pictures on my computer (they were a mess) and renamed them so they're easier to find. NOW, the big task of ordering prints. I find it sad that in this digital age so many of our photos never make it to... Continue reading

The fourth of July was absolutely beautiful this year. The weather was mild, I could've worn a jacket, and the sun was shining. It was bittersweet as we remembered Olivia, on what would have been her 18th birthday. We celebrated with my family at my parents'. We started off with... Continue reading

What a week it has been. Last Thursday, some friends' daughter was in a serious auto accident. Sadly, she passed away the following day, one week before her 18th birthday. I'm heartbroken for my friends. I don't ever remember seeing Olivia without a huge smile on her face. She was... Continue reading

You may remember this lovely couple from their engagement session last fall. Well, they tied the knot this weekend in a beautiful ceremony at The Barn at Stone Valley Plantation, in Pleasant Hope. Everything was so simply sweet...blue mason jars, pale pink peonies, baby's breath over the dance floor, right... Continue reading

Just a little sneak peek for the anxious couple from their engagement session yesterday. They just returned from a missions trip to Honduras, and are looking forward to their big day in August. I'll add more to this post later, but for now... Love, Josi Continue reading

Many of you know that I became a step-grandma this week. The situation is a little odd, since my husband and I are separated. I don't really know what to call myself. Good thing he can't talk yet, so I don't have to figure it out right away. I don't... Continue reading

It's been a tradition of ours to go to the St. Patrick's Day parade every year since Jory (my oldest) was three. That's fourteen years, and I think we've only missed a couple. Usually the weather doesn't cooperate and it's cold and rainy, but today was beautiful! I won't bore... Continue reading

Today is Mardi Gras. These are a couple years old now, but every year at Mardi Gras I really miss New Orleans, and my friends there! If you've never been, it is quite an experience! Happy Mardi Gras! xo Josi Follow my blog with Bloglovin Continue reading

If you find yourself alone this Valentine's Day, no need to feel sad. I hoped you've spread some love today by, say, sending your mom or grandma flowers? Or giving a surprise to the kids in your life? And it's not too late to show a little love to yourself!... Continue reading

As promised, here are some photos of my boys having fun in our first big snow of the winter. And, I don't know about you, but I hope we're finished with snow for the winter. BRING SPRING! (But it was fun for a day). :) xo Josi Follow my blog... Continue reading

A friend of mine shares my birthday, so we have a tradition of having lunch and exchanging gifts. We almost always end up giving each other something from Sephora. It's so fun, because she always gives me something I've never tried, and probably wouldn't buy on my own. She has... Continue reading

My obsession of late has been seasonal color analysis. You know, flashback to Color Me Beautiful of the eighties. I came across a group on facebook that I joined; whether I've really figured myself out or not, I do not know. It involves posting hideous photos of yourself, without makeup,... Continue reading

Hello there. You may have noticed I've been missing from my blog for a while. I have a lot going on in my personal life taking all of my energy and focus. Anyhoo, I'm here today. Hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year's Day.... Continue reading

Hello, fellow Halloweeners!! HA! I said weeners! This is Jack's very favorite joke right now. He saw it on a cartoon. It is pretty cute when he says it, although it did get him into a tiny bit of trouble at school. ;) Many of you saw this on my... Continue reading

I was so excited to be able to get away at the beginning of the week, if just for one night. Eureka Springs is one of my favorite over-night destinations as it is a short drive, yet far enough to feel "away", and there's just enough to do to stay... Continue reading

I was fortunate enough to be able to take engagement photos for this adorable couple. I've known Natalie since she was born, have literally watched her grow up. And let me tell you, this girl is beautiful inside and out, and this is one lucky guy to have captured her... Continue reading

I had so much fun with my first editorial shoot this summer working with Modern Crayon Design for Plaza Shoes (and such fun to see my photos on several billboards around town!). So I was thrilled when I was asked to shoot again for their fall promos. Here are a... Continue reading

My baby boy had a birthday in September. I just cannot believe how the time flies after you have kids! Here are a few memories from that day. He got to skip school (I've always given the boys that option-bad, bad mama) and chose Steak and Shake for lunch. He... Continue reading
