How do I even begin to describe this beautiful and talented lady? Sarah is the owner of Ladybird Poppy Floral Designs. We became friends back in 2010 at the start of our business’s. Each winter when things would slow down and we would go into a season of re-evaluating our work, we would meet out of shear need for encouragement that we could do this business owner/creative/artist/ entrepreneur thing. Those have grown into vendor meet-ups we fondly called our “creative meetings”.

I’ve loved watching Sarah’s business thrive and grow over the past 4 years. Her work is lovely, and it has been so much fun to show up to a wedding and know the flowers are her designs, and we get to work together that day.

She is one of those steady, sweet, and smart women that are so rare to find.

Sarah- I’m not sure you know the moments that you have encouraged me to keep at this work, or the times I’ve felt so inadequate as a photographer, and you have called and complimented me on a session, but you have kept me going in some of the tough moments. I’m so happy to have you in my life sweet lady.

Cheers to many more adventures together in the future!

Happy Valentine’s Day! Hope it’s full of those you love. And lots of chocolate.

David(the husband) is shooting in France today. He is cool like that- So in the spirit of Valentine’s day, I thought I would take this moment to say how much I love that man. Oh- and you should check out his website,


You are strength for me- steady in my crazy emotional life. I’m so grateful for you- and I love our crazy free-lance life. Thank you for supporting me, loving me, making our life joyful and relaxed, cooking amazing food for this tired body, and providing for our little family.

I’m so proud of all the amazing work you are doing.

Come home soon!

I love you tons!

I loved yesterdays head-shot session with Julien Oblette. He is only in high school, but is already pursuing a career as an actor in film.  His debut short film Broken Cycle  was accepted into the Indie Memphis, Austin, and Cleveland International Film Festivals.  If you have a minute, check it out here: , he is pretty fantastic.

I’ve loved getting to know your crazy, ambitious, film industry family over the past two years. Anastasia Cummings you are  nothing short of amazing with your work in film, and I’m sure you will have the same success Julien! Thank you for supporting and believing in David and I as we continue to venture forth into this crazy artist world of free lance. We love journeying it with you.
