Frakes Photography bio picture
  • Welcome to my world!

    YUP! I'm a mom and I'm totin' my camera and I'm PROUD of it!! After years of creating and learning and recreating and getting ahead of technology so I could create, learn and create some more, I found myself ready to branch out into a business where I could share my creativity with others. Just consider me obsessed...a passionate creative who is completely obsessed with the notion that beauty is alive and I have only to peek through my lens to see it...everywhere and in everyone!!
    I hope to see you here often as I do my best to post new content weekly or more!! You won't want to miss the new categories I have planned such as photography tips for hip moms (you're a hip mom whether you know it or not!) and local small business features. Lots of new plans are in the mix and you won't want to miss a single post!
    Be sure to like me on facebook for even more fun updates and photos and a (soon to come) behind the scenes look at what I do...or don't do...lol

Cousins and kids

Despite the nature of my trip to Missouri last week, there were several highlights along the way, one being the opportunity to see my cousin Hannah and her wonderful family!  Her and her husband are missionaries to the Dominican Republic and their visits to the States are rare, never mind the fact that I live […]

A few deep thoughts…

Just a week and 3 days ago I found myself wakened by my husband with words that no person is ever prepared to hear:  “Honey, it’s an emergency, your oldest sister has just died.”  In an instant, I experienced a washing of dread from my head to my toes; my mind couldn’t even comprehend that […]

…and the award goes to…..!!!!!!

All 10 of the finalists pulled in a great number of votes over the past week and I congratulate, once again, ALL of you because in my opinion you were all winners! For about half of the week all the votes were within 100 of each other, then the top two started to separate themselves […]
