What is your favorite thing about being a mom?
My favorite thing about being a mom is nurturing the development of my child and seeing those efforts come to life as he matures.
What do you love about raising your children in the South?
I love the sense of tradition that such as church, chivalry, SEC football, etc. that accompanies living in the south.

Why did you choose this location to do the family photo shoot?
I chose Lake Acworth as the location for our photo shoot because I really wanted to showcase our appreciation for the outdoors. This location was perfect as it allowed us to take advantage of the lake, bridge, and traditional southern gazebo.

Two lessons that I have instilled in my son since he was two years old are:
“Do what you have to do so you can do what you want to do.”
“Be a leader and not a follower.”

My son has been playing baseball since he was four years old and his dream is to be a major league baseball player. To that end, we nurture that dream by participating in the travel baseball tournaments.
Do you have any favorite restaurants you like to take them?
Our favorite after-church ritual is to eat breakfast at Cracker Barrel.
Who styled the children for this shoot?
