I can't tell you about myself without talking about Jesus - as my identity is found in Him.
Matthew 10:39 NLT - If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for me, you will find it.
I’m convinced that I have the best job in the world. Sometimes I really just can’t believe it honestly. I’ve been doing photography for 12 years and I’ve completely fallen in love with photographing weddings, sweet families and boudoir.
Growing up, I was so unsure of what I wanted to do “when I grew up”. One fateful Christmas, years ago… I received a tiny little DSLR. I began taking pictures of anything and everything. It was love at first sight! I started doing “model shoots” with some of my best friends and that’s how this dream job of mine started!
My husband, Anthony Craig Counts, stole my heart in 2007. We were married April 29, 2017 at one of my FAVORITE locations in Arkansas - Petit Jean Mountain. That perfect little beeb you see in my arms is our baby boy, Cade William Counts. He was born February 13th, 2019. I have the most beautiful family and I can’t believe how blessed I am that they’re mine!
The biggest thing I can tell you about me is that Jesus is everything. Aside from photography, I love working out and spending time with my family and friends. Lifting weights is my form of therapy. I've been lifting for over 6 years now. I recently discovered that I LOVE reading. A few of my recent faves are: Ice Planet Barbarians by Ruby Dixon (don't judge me...), The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid, the ACOTAR series (specifically Silver Flames! Cassian = zaddy) and Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma.
My favorite color is pink, I’m a Harry Potter lunatic, I watch Game of Thrones reruns all the time, I love to listen to Radical Face while I edit and Korn when I work out. I also like to play my Nintendo Switch (Animal Crossing, Minecraft & Pokemon mostly). I shop online too much - I like to order myself presents! My husband and I love our dinner and movie date nights, and finding new shows to binge on some streaming platform! Our current binge TV show is Dragon Ball Z! Which may sound hilarious, but I've actually never seen it and I've been MISSING OUT because this show is stinkin good.
The best and most important title that I hold is “mom.” My son Cade William is my little love but has the biggest part of my heart. He’s 4 years old and he keeps me and his daddy on our toes!
