Fall Weddings Incoming!! ❤️ Look at the beautiful fall florals!! Ahhh I can’t wait!
❤️ Real Talk: My weight used the be the first thing on my mind when I woke up.
Thats a difficult way to start the day.
If you have ever been over weight, suffered from emotional/stress/boredom eating that has gotten out of control you know.
And maybe even asked yourself, “why me”? “Why is this so hard?”
Then also justify the “its ok”
It’s all ok until it’s not.
✨My life is so beautifully different for me now, y’all.
I want to encourage you that YOU CAN TOO.
I’m nothing special. I just finally got sick and tired of living an insecure and exhausted life. I found an incredible program rooted it nutrition and behavioral mortification and I FOLLOWED IT. All of it. And I practice intuitive eating and decision making based on what I want for my life.
It’s not a question of CAN YOU…it’s a question of DO YOU WANT TOO?
Think on it. And know I’m here and never going anywhere. ❤️
A quick curated collection from this 🔥 wedding!!!!
We love ❤️ this spot for post ceremony portraits with the and ! Totally obsessed!
I’m on a kick with these galleries!! Ahhh ❤️
Amazing in Winston Salem at the beautiful !!! 🔥🔥🎉🎉
I love all the bright clean spaces when it’s time to get your dress on!! Look at this one! 😍
When you can, throw the petals 💐
🔥Ok Hiiiiii. Painful truth. 🔥
I spent the first 25 years of my life uncomfortable.
It’s not about losing weight to be skinny or fitting an image.
➡️ It’s about losing weight to be healthier, to have more energy, to be able to get off the floor, to not get winded walking up the stairs, to not treat my body like a garbage can, to not toss and turn for hours before finally falling asleep, to not have back pain, to be able to lean over and put my child in his crib…..the list goes on and on.
This was never to be skinny.
This was never to be a certain clothing size.
I am unbelievably proud of this! I gained a ton of weight my kids births because honestlty I used them and my “life” as an excuse.
This program works. End of story. 💥
I LOVE the way she Loves him even up at the Alter!
I loved the idea of these having an intimate reception at !! Can’t wait to show off more of this gorgeous
season coming in hot! 🔥
❤️ Happy Easter from our family to yours! 🐣❤️
Such a wonderful day spent with both of our sweet families! 🐣🐰🐣🐰
At first I was skeptical, “How can you get healthy without exercise? Yeah right”. At first I was cheap “What? That much for some food to lose some weight? Nah I’m good, I can do it in my own”. I was afraid of failure! What if I invested hope and money into something and it didn’t work?
… BUT WHAT ABOUT WHEN IT DOES WORK!!!! I had to kick fear in the face and go for it! I was a lot of things, am a lot of things! One thing I am not; IM NOT SORRY THAT 2.5 YEARS AGO I SAID YES and quit telling myself a sad story!!
2.5 years later, had a baby in between, have maintained and I’m now working up to ultra health, and I have my confidence back! Better Mama and Wife!
Don’t let the story in your head stop you from living your best life! Don’t wait! I won’t let you fail! Let’s do this together! The time is NOW and you are HERE!
The bridal suite at is incredible for getting ready and snapping some gorg photos!
💣 UGLY TRUTH 💣
Welp guys…tomorrow is ANOTHER Monday morning…😬🤩🙋🏼♀️
If you want change, or hell maybe you don’t even want “change” but you’re sick and fu***ng tired of being sick and fu***ng tired?
Or wait? Not yet?
That was me.
Nope…it’s not *that* bad, Ash.
That was me.
I wasn’t *that* tired.
I wasn’t *that* over weight.
I still felt pretty.
I was still successful.
I had a husband who loved me
I had good friends and a great family.
THIS WAS ME.
For SO many years of my life.
I was happy, fun, successful…in so many areas of my life. But not my health.
Turns out this “health” thing was the real missing ticket.
When you reach rock bottom and your bu****it excuses…I’ll be here.
It’s not about food, it’s not about Optavia, it’s not about counting or tracking or dieting…it’s about the cold hard truth of facing *buzz word* FOOD ADDICTION.
It’s hard. It’s scary. It’s controlling.
It held me captive for 35 years of my life.
But not anymore!
If you need a hand with this nasty disease, take mine.
I will meet you where you are and guide you with all that I have.
It sucks, its uncomfortable, but your suffering does not and should not be alone.
Total transformation — mind and body, is possible.
I’m HERE and as allways, I’m
Cheering for you!! ❤️❤️
What if that “one more thing” you try is the last thing you’ll ever have to try?🤔
Most of us are good at dieting, it’s the after that we don’t know how to navigate. The good news is, I help you navigate all of it….and hopefully show you to not be scared of pasta, bread, bananas, and ice cream in the process.😜
One of the most important qualities of a passionate wedding photographer is the ability to connect with clients and understand their unique vision for their wedding day. From the style and location of the ceremony to the colors and details of the reception, every wedding is different, and it's important to take the time to listen to your clients and understand their preferences and priorities. This is how I create one heck of a

Sick of these rainy cold days! ☔️ I’m so ready for the pretty weather and all the pretty brides 😍
Wedding season is coming up! And we couldn’t be more excited!!
“Beautiful in both photos, happy in both photos, but a lot more energy, confidence, purpose and vision in the photo on the right.
It’s just so amazingly different. ❤️
Candid, “unscripted” photos of myself use to do me in. They made me feel so 😳. It was that stark harsh reality of looking at yourself thinking, “is that really me? Do I look like that? I’ve really let this get that out of hand?” 🙁
Admittedly I would also roll my eyes and think “eh, bad angle” and overcompensate with a perfectly composed selfie showing 2/3’s of my body. “Thats better!” I’m fine, It’s fine.
It wasn’t fine.
The reality is my weight was such a monkey. A monkey on my back.
I will say — “size” may not matter - but being confident in your skin, DOES.
It changes you. It changes the whole story and the whole game.
It’s why I’m so passionate about health because it has changed how I show up, how I parent, how I think and how I treat others in my life. And thats a big deal to me.
No I’m not perfect. Yes I struggle and always will - but I’m trying, I’m contending for my health and I’m here to tell you, YOU CAN TOO.
🎉 This is T-H-I-R-T-Y E-I-G-H-T 🎉
What a weekend of feeling so very loved! I have the best friends and family a girl could dream of. My kids are pretty ok too. 😉 Thank you to all of you for reaching out and sending wishes, it totally made my day! Heres to another year of growing, pursuing and contending! Have an awesome week! Xoxo

The most crazy, stressful, exhausting, magical Christmas season yet. 🎅🏻❤️
Still swooning over this 🎄❤️📸
🎄December 2021 —— December 2022 🎄
4.2 lbs away from my pre-pregnancy and all time lowest weight of my adult life.
Everyone talks about pregnancy weight gain but NOBODY prepares you for how hard is to get that weight off while also caring for a new baby! Tired, exhausted, SO BUSY…insert [HOLY EXCUSES] to eat poorly.
With my first two kiddos I used those excuses to the MAX — takeout and Uber eats were the ONLY option in my my mind. Or I simply wouldn’t eat - handful of goldfish…Mamas good [NOT goood]✌🏻
NOT THIS TIME! “If your plan to lose weight doesn’t work on your busiest, craziest day…it simply WILL NOT WORK.”
Post baby or not, we need a SIMPLE and EFFICIENT nutrition plan.
Unless you want to meal prep for 7 hours on a Sunday — you may just need exactly what I needed.
Once you get sick of being where you are in your health, lets chat. I’m still here. I have the answers to your struggles. ❤️
Love this pic outside ! Can’t wait to go back!!! .anna819
