…3 months and 14 days, actually. Landon is the cutest baby in the world (I’m partial) because he’s my nephew and I just love the little guy so much…

Just a note to say HAPPY THANKSGIVING to everyone! The economy may not be swell but we still have A LOT to be thankful for America!

And now for a clip from my FAVORITE Thanksgiving classic…

Don’t forget to say grace!

Be blessed.

Justin and Amber’s Wedding took place at the University of Charleston on October 18, 2008. It was a fabulous day with a few extra special touches. Like the fact that Amber’s Mom secretly invited Justin’s favorite band to play at the reception and it was a huge suprise! And when Amber found the words “better luck next time” written on her beer cap before the ceremony- it was a good laugh.

Now this sweet couple is expecting a baby next year! Can’t wait to take photos of the little one! Yah, congrats Amber & Justin!!!

Here are some favorites from Family Sessions on Sat. November 22nd.

The Brack Family
from Parkersburg (some seriously cute kids!)

The Rees Family
from Ravenswood (I did Nathan’s Senior portraits a few months ago. What a gorgeous family!)

I love this time of year, when the little girls come to see me dressed in holiday dresses with cute bows and curls galore!




My work is on the cover of InWheeling Magazine once again, for the Holiday issue that just came out.

I love doing editorial work!

By the way, if you live in Ohio, be sure and grab the upcoming Jan 2009 issue of Ohio Magazine because I will have some work published in two of their stories as well. How exciting.

Just a friendly note that the deadline for ordering prints, cards, and all other products you plan to give for Christmas is December 5th. This will ensure that I can retouch and process everyone’s orders and have them to you a few days or even a week before Christmas! Also, there is still time to book a session for Christmas portraits. Check my calendar at http://www.myspace.com/radiantbutterfly

Remember, I am offering 6 new Christmas card styles, size 5×7, they come in sets of $25= $79.00 each!


Cooper Diddle was due for his monthly session and the main theme this time was Christmas, as his Grandma is going to have me make some custom Christmas cards with photos of him to send out. He just keeps on getting cuter. Not to mention he keeps growing!

Well, actually, I have lots of favorites, but Ethan is definately high on my list :) Mr. Ethan Gray, one of the cutest little boys ever! I did portraits of him this time last year and his Mom Heidi brought him back in last week. I just love his blonde hair and the way he talks and laughs, so precious!

Autumn Wedding #2
October 11, 2008
Megan Simpson & Matthew McCarty
Parkersburg, W.V.

Another beautiful October Wedding and fun-filled day. Megan was in a Wedding I shot back in March along with all her best friends so it was like a reunion of sorts, seeing everyone again.

A few favorites…
