As an on location photographer, every session is different, unique, and fits into your life as you live it. Your home is most often the backdrop for your sessions and your family having fun is the main priority. I love to photograph outdoors when possible and capture real interactions, peaceful sleeping babies, laughing children and delightful moments. Newborn photography is a deeply true passion of mine. Capturing life when it is so fresh and new is a once in a lifetime chance because before you know it they will be all grown up in the blink of an eye!

Having lived through the process of wedding planning, watching my wedding fly by in an instant, and trying to re-live it through photographs, I am completely dedicated to capturing breath taking moments of that special wedding day of have always dreamed of...and the once in a life time love that each couple brings to the table.

I am a big time city girl who's roots are from Texas. Natural light photography is my passion and to me, photographs are a story. Each setting provides something new for me to dive into. I love seeing people in love, and the joy of welcoming in a new life. Not only do I make new friends with my clients, but I get inspiration from each one of the families I work with. I Love capturing sweet memories of childhood and special family times, the miracle of life is just that.... a Miracle!

I enjoy what I do, and most of the time it hardly seems like work at all, at the end of day I have a wonderful husband and 3 handsome sons, and one gorgeous daughter waiting for me at home! I'm blessed to have such wonderful people in my life and a career that I love!


*Please note that as a Newborn and Birth Photographer, a newborn session {if need be} and birth session may lead to a reschedule of your session if the times are conflicting. I will try my best to please everyone but as most of us know babies arrive whenever they feel like it and only stay "fresh" for a short period of time. Thank you for understanding.

*Editing times may vary from week to week and session to session, please understand that I am a mom of 4 babies and a wife first and for most. I do my best to make my turn around time as short as possible but understand that I put my family first as I'm sure you do as well! Turn around times for prints may vary depending on holidays and amount of orders. Because of the nature of my business I do not offer refunds and pleasing my clients is very important to me.

Guestbook for Loves and Hugs Photography
9.Lacy Wright(non-registered)
I have had the pleasure of working with Misty multiple times over the last couple of years. It all began with my maternity pictures with my first child. She traveled to Lincoln and we took pictures outdoors as well as in our own home. Next came the birth of our son. Misty captured some truly amazing pictures of an unforgettable day. Needless to say, these pictures are some of my most prized possesions. Misty also did the newborn through age one pictures of our son Henry. She is great about not repeating the same kinds of pictures throughout that first year. Every picture we have is different! I also had Misty do a photo session for my sister and her family, and again, couldn't be happier with the way they turned out! Now that my husband and I are expecting our second child, Misty has already done one set of maternity pictures for us and we still have one more to do. We have already enlisted Misty's services to capture the birth of our second child, with all of the newborn pictures to follow. Misty is a truly talented photographer and is so patient, even when our son was crying at every session! All I can say is, "Thank You" Misty and we look forward to many more years of your wonderful photos!
8.Loves and Hugs Photography
Regarding Loves and Hugs experience:

My wife and I spent many days and time calling around to find the “best” photographer for shooting our twin daughters! We talked with many different people, some higher priced some lower priced. Needless to say after much thought and discussion we choose to go with Misty from Loves and Hugs. I will say she is by far the BEST; she went above and beyond our expectations. She took the time needed and has the patience to work with multiples. As, we have learned and I am sure everyone who has multiples they can take A LOT of time, they take a lot of effort and many times you wonder how am I doing this? However, the photo shoot was nothing major (for us) Misty was patience, caring, held the babies helped make sure they were in their “right mind” for the photos. This was a very smooth process and it was very evident that she cares about what she does but also who she works with. I would recommend Misty anytime and to anyone; she is incredibly talented and gifted at what she does! I can say with out hesitation she is by far the best, the people who see our pictures are amazed at how she has them placed and situated perfectly. Many times I have ben ask “did she photo shop the hands or this or that” the simple answer “no” she spend the time necessary to get the job done right and with the best quality. We look forward to many years of working with her and our family.

ow can you sum up a person like Misty in a few sentences? It’s near impossible!! What I can share is that she is one of the most passionate and gifted photographers I have had the true pleasure of both knowing and working with. I stumbled onto Misty from a website search and thank my lucky stars I called her! From the first photo session we had together of my pregnancy to the most recent of my precious little boy she has amazed me. She is creative, spunky and thinks well on her feet- critical skills needed to capture a special moment on film. Misty is also patient- a quality that truly helpful when working with little ones and unpredictable personalities. Each time I see a new batch of photo proofs I can hardly contain my excitement- her photos are just breathtaking! She manages to capture my son’s personality in so many ways. I know that years from today when I look back at these photos I will always be grateful Misty was able to freeze time for just a moment and allow me to keep these memories close to my heart.

Anyone can take a picture, but to be able to capture a memory is different. I have been able to watch my son grown from my belly to almost a year old through pictures because of Misty and her talent! She is reasonable with her pricing, makes your shoot comfortable and fit your own style. It is not often I can say that a relationship that started out as a business one has turned into a friendship! She is an amazing photographer! Thanks Misty for all of my still memories!!
