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

Pretty in Pink

She loves to shop and fashion is a must but that doesn’t stop her from visiting her flip side!  On any given sunny day, you may find her smeared with paint, brushes in hand, barefoot and in the throws of wild inspiration of a new creation on canvas…or then again, she may be trying on […]

More Hope

Tis the season to be ULTRA busy around here which is precisely why I decided to take the time to stop and share a few of the photos of my precious babies from New Hope.  I don’t always get the chance to post these sessions but I’m feeling the need to take a break, step […]

memories that last

I always wondered what I would have done had my wedding photos not turned out the way I wanted.  After all, it is intended to be a one time occurrence!  Gives me evil goosebumps just thinking about the prospect of that disappointment!  So we can all groan together when I say that Elijah and Lindsey […]
