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

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 […]

New Hope: He knows your name

Why is it that some of us have a full life, while others are despairing of any hope with which to live? It’s a question that most of us with the full life forget to ask. It’s a question that those without hope ask every day, unless… Unless WE actively seek out those with nowhere […]
