Victoria and Matt’s Engagement

It was such a gorgeous evening for Victoria and Matt’s engagement!  If you didn’t know better it was like they were the only two on the beach. They have so much love for each other and they are so thankful that God brought them together. Matt surprised Victoria with a very moving foot washing that led right into him asking her to be his wife. They shared such special and sweet moments out on Johnson’s Beach that they will cherish for a lifetime.

It’s always a joy for me when I get to spend an evening with these sweet people. This time it was extra extra special because Katelynn & Triston had a magical wedding on this evening and I was able to meet their precious little boys for the first time.  It was all so perfect in every way, there was so much love, laughter and complete happiness. They all made memories that they will all cherish for a lifetime!

2020 Year in Review

2020 Year in Review for Lashes and Lenses Photography

When 2020 started we were so excited about the upcoming year, little did we know we would be facing a pandemic called Covid and a major Hurricane named Sally. These two things brought many challenges & heartache but through it all we closed 2020 with grateful hearts. Only God can take those two catastrophes and turn it into something good. 2020 turned out to be one of our busiest years yet. With that being said we were able to use a portion of our proceeds to help the Florida Baptist Childrens home. We helped with household supplies, diapers and school supplies. We also had the privilege of providing their Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. We filled many precious children’s birthday wishes that involved cakes, cupcakes and gifts. It truly warms our hearts to know that many children were Blessed this past year through our business.  We are so thankful to be able to do this. 

We also met so many dear families from across from all over who came for photo sessions. We had three surprise engagements, two senior sessions, several special children’s birthdays, celebrations, family reunions and many returning clients that have become our dear friends, we were so happy to see them again and their growing families. 

We are so thankful to have been a part of all our families special memories in 2020 and knowing the memories that were made will be cherished for years to come.  We are so looking forward to 2021 and all the new memories that will be made and the new families that will become dear friends.
