A New Bundle of Joy!

Merrick Imagery-044

One of my good friends just welcomed her first baby into this world.  What an ANGEL!  No one can prepare you for the love that fills your heart and completes your family.  I wish her the most wonderful journey in motherhood.  It is worth every sleepless night, every ounce of fear, all the effort put in, any amount of pain and every tear shed.  Your child becomes your proudest accomplishment and where you will find the most joy in life.  Good Luck Ayeesha & Owen…Enjoy Parenthood, there is nothing like it!  

Welcome to the World Kylee!

Fun Senior Portrait Session!

Merrick Imagery-13I remember Senior Year as an exciting time!  Full of life, energy and the free feeling of a wide open future.  It can be intimidating to decide which route to take in life, but the best part is you have options and time on your side.  Not knowing where the wind will blow you or what direction you “should” choose is a daunting feeling, rest assured life moves quickly and you’ll find your way before you know it.  I drifted through my 20’s and finally found my passion in my 30’s…Portrait Photography.  So to all Seniors out there you do not need to know what you want to do in this life right this second…just get on living it.  Now is the time to experience everything, enjoy life, travel, work, learn, grow, make new friends, take some risks and never get lazy or complacent!  Best of Luck to you…Make the Best of this time in your life! :)

Motherhood is a Blessing

MaternityI never knew how much love could harbor in one persons heart.  My son has shown me love and strength that I did not even know I had.  Being a mom is the single most wonderful thing that could ever happen to a woman.  The period of Maternity is not always a fun or pleasant time in a woman’s life, but it is a miracle and a few shots on a rush-rush morning session with my husband as my photographer and my two year old son as my sitting partner has captured the Beauty.  We look forward to meeting our new addition to the Merrick Family and the next chapter of our Life.   Hope you enjoy the photos and Thank you for Viewing :)
