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

three i’s and a powerful U

It’s been a wonderful weekend so far, to say the least…the provider of our home decided to take time off for a much needed mini family vacation!  Yesterday marked the much anticipated first day of play and OHHH BOY, did we pack it full of memories!  Even Chloe left her print on the day by […]

It’s a love thing….

Who doesn’t enjoy being around a couple in love…especially in its young love days!!!  *sigh*  Well, I had a fantabulous time doing an engagement session with Tim and Kami on THE only day this week that it hasn’t rained!!!  Never mind all the broken bottles, cut feet (shudder), well used couch cushions, gawking tenants and […]

little brother, big sister

It’s official!  My very first ever newborn to photograph is now a big sister…and you guessed it…I had the honor of photographing her new baby brother this week.  *insert melting heart here*  He was perfect in every way.  I could have sat and held him all day for no other reason than to soak up […]
