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

There is no doubt that the location for this session was serene and peaceful but what made it special was the family that gave it life!  All the way from Murfreesboro (I actually looked that word up to be sure I was spelling it correctly) they came, so that they could officially have their first […]

A boy and his dog

Okay, so what boy hasn’t asked for a dog at some point in his life.  BUT, how many of those boys have patiently asked for a dog for over a year AND carefully thought out all the needs and demands that new dog would hold?  Here’s a good one…how many of those boys actually thought […]

Girls’ Night Out

Knowing that a writer in the making (yes, I’m talking about you, Lynette) is going to be reading this, I feel the need to give this blog an additional amount of thought, lol!  GAH, the PRESSURE!  Incredible isn’t a descriptive enough word for the time I spent with Lynette, her mother and her grandmother last […]
