A journey through the forest

A Journey through the Forest, with Peyton.

Yesterday evening while it was raining, Peyton and I made a last minute decision to venture out into the woods, with makeup, and crowns and dresses in hand. What I present to you is a bit of a tale, that evolved along the way; Of a girl who gets lost in the woods, and after a great deal of turmoil, insanity, and soul searching she eventually finds herself to be right at home, as Queen of the Forest.

The month of MAY!

Well as May comes to a close, all I can say is beautiful weather, and lots of work to keep me busy as a bee, which is great! However I have been slacking on keeping you all updated, with weekly photo of the day posts, and even a few daily posts, EEK! So I am super pleased to now announce that I have officially launched Just Shoot Me Photography, and I am open for business! This is why I have been slacking on blog updates and I apologize, I will be better now that the dust is beginning to settle, from my business venture trail blazing, so without further adoo I give you the month of May, in all its glory!
