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

Where did the summer go?

Summer always ends MUCH too quickly for me although I did find myself, for most likely the first time in my life, actually looking forward to cooler weather.  Let’s face it.  It was a LONG! HOT! summer…even for the most sun-loving of us!!  That being said, it was actually a most perfect summer to spend […]

All about your own back to school session…

  To say that I’m really excited about this season’s special Back to School sessions would be a gross understatement!!  I’ve been wanting to do something like this for quite some time, but had decided long ago that I would postpone any big personal projects until all my babies were big enough to be in […]

Back to school and growing too fast

I’m finding myself completely torn here.  After dedicating half the morning to writing up a great blog about all the blunders, mishaps and giggles that found their way into our lives on the day of this shoot, the entire post just completely disappeared.  GONE.  I can’t even find a speck of a trace of a […]
