Around the end of May Neil and I finally moved back to our hometown of Paducah. Finally! Not even a week after we moved home we left for Disney World and then I spent the following week and a half after we got back from Disney studying for my nursing boards. THEN I started my new job and well, I’m just now getting around to blogging about it all.

So where did we move to, you ask? Well, my parents had just started moving into their new house that conveniently had a pool/guest house! Because it was getting to be so frustrating living in a different town than where Neil and I both wanted to be my parents offered for us to move into their guest house until we found a house. After all, we were spending half of our time in Paducah anyway. The guest house is tiny, I don’t know how many square feet, but these pictures should give you a good idea. Please excuse the mess. These pictures were taken the day we moved in.









Now, the images below are obviously not the guest house, but what is outside the guest house. The main house is outside and to the left…

Directly in front of the guest house is the pool. It’s covered in this picture but has been uncovered and heavily used since we’ve been back from Florida :)

The rest of the patio and the back yard is outside and to the right of the guest house…

More of the back yard and the lake.

And this is the guest house! Cute huh?

No, I’ll show you cute! My two pups, waiting for their momma to finish taking pictures and to let them outside :)

I apologize for the poor images quality. These were all taken with my iPhone.

I’ve been tracking this package since I was emailed the tracking number a few days ago. I’ve been far too excited for it to get here and when it did I practically squealed! My client, Morgan, was even more excited when I text her that it arrived.

I have all prints and products shipped to me first so that I may double and triple check the order before repackaging it in Rachael Houser Photography packaging. Which also gives me the opportunity to take pictures of the beautiful products.

I had plenty of expectations for my first KISS book. I knew that the pages would have lay-flat hinges. That they would also be thick and sturdy. I knew that the linen cover would be a gorgeous color; that it would feel so smooth.

And in this order’s case, the finish product is, simply put, more beautiful than I could have imagined. Expectations = beyond met.

The binding is strong. The pages are thick and shiny.


And if this isn’t lay-flat hinges, I don’t know what is!


And I love extras! The album cover supplied with everything KISS album is the perfect addition. It really is the icing on the cake.


Of course, I had to eventually package it up and deliver it to my client but I’m already itching to design, order, and receive another KISS book. Any takers??

After only 30 minutes photographing while the wedding party got ready for Sarah and Garrett’s special day I proclaimed to Sarah and her girls “This wedding is getting sent in for publishing!” I hope the following few images speak to how beautiful this wedding was!

Love you bunches…..Many blessings on your life together….

A week ago I met Eva and Adam at Lighthouse Landing in Grand Rivers for their engagement session. It started off with Adam tricking me into thinking the engagement session was off, only for me to find out once they arrived that he was always playing jokes on people. He had my heart racing for the few minutes where I felt in the dark. Once Eva explained, everything was OK and in fact it broke the ice between me and Adam, whom I’d not yet met. In other words, even though I was laughing nervously at first (seriously, you don’t joke about that!), it quickly turned to just pure fun. In fact two and a half hours of fun between friends is what it felt like the entire time!
