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

Girls Only

She wore flowers in her hair and heels on her shoes; she danced past the shops and whispered to the wind.  It was a completely carefree day! I never lose that edge of excitement when a client brings along a parent, but when they also haul in an AUNT?!!  Whoa, Nellie!  I know right then […]

Perfectly agreeable in every way; there’s no other way to describe her unless you’re talking about her smiling eyes or her lighthearted laugh that says all is good in the world. We had the unfortunate experience of not one rain out, but two…well, almost two…more like one and a half!!  AND, the second rain out […]
