Take a Look

This is what we are dealing with here at my home. 2.5 acres completely submerged in water. My house is an island in Lake Providence. Thanks to the many men and women who sandbagged day and night, we still remain dry on the inside. Pumps continue to run 24 hours a day to keep it that way. I will post better pictures tomorrow as I can. You can only boat in and out, so we will be moving out tomorrow to live with relatives until the water recedes. Thanks to all of you for your thoughts and prayers. srt

Hurricane Gustav deals a heavy blow

Just wanted to update everyone now that Gustav has left the area. As many of you know, we live on the lake. The water in our area has not been this high since 1991. We are currently sandbagging our home as water is literally at our front and back doors. Our internet and phone lines are not working well. My business depends on the internet and it is very spotty right now. If you have been trying to reach me, My cell phone is also having major problems. In addition to all of this, I am leaving for North Carolina today for a family emergency and am not sure how long I will be gone.

For those of you waiting on orders, Amy and Kelly will be handling things until I can get back, but the water is too high right now for them to get to the house and the files. You can call Amy at (318)282-8210 or (318)559-3330 with any questions.

These things are beyond my control, but we are doing our best to manage the situation. Please pray for me, my family and my business as we cope with all of this. srt

Wilson Delahaye

Caroline and Austen had a beautiful wedding at Hemingbough in historic St. Francisville. Storm clouds gathered right before the ceremony, but only a few sprinkles ever fell. The setting was splendid and I love the pop of the bright orange dresses. My favorite moment was the string orchestra rendition of "Sweet Caroline" while guests sang. Thanks so much for allowing me to capture your day. Here are some of my favorites. srt

Truett Rieger

When I have a bride that calls me that has no tie to Lake Providence, it's always exciting for me. Stacey and John came over to do their bridal and engagement photos and I instantly loved them. They are such a sweet couple and have been together for a very long time. It was a hot day in June for this wedding set in Calhoun, Louisiana. Loved the Harley! Here are a few of my favorites. srt

McKenzie Meredith

This was our fourth wedding in May. Four weddings in a row in one month can be daunting, but each one is so unique that it makes it fun. This was my first time to shoot a wedding at Jesus the Good Shepherd in Monroe. The church was exquisite with gorgeous stained glass windows. The reception was held at the Ouachita Grand Plaza. Katherine and Scott followed me to the Forsythe park for some fun post ceremony shots as Mr. and Mrs. Here are some of my favorites. srt

Emma Kate

This is Emma Kate. She is the beautiful granddaughter to Mrs. Carole & Mr. Thomas who are my next door neighbors. I am so blessed to have them next door. I have been using their yard, porches, swings, trees, you name it for almost 8 years now. They never know when I'll be there, but they never complain and always welcome my clients (except for when I forget to turn the sprinklers back on!). Seriously, I don't know if my business would be where it is today without the setting of their yard. There is no way to thank them daily, but I thought a session with their first granddaughter might be a gesture of thanks. She is adorable. I look forward to more as she grows. Thank you Mrs. Carole, for everything. srt
