So...aspire to be all that you can be and conquer those fears that tell you that that is impossible to do, and, well, celebrate!
I want you to meet Katie Pegher. Isn't she stunning? She is such a sweetheart and has agreed to sponsor a giveaway here on Captivatingly, Me for all my Lovelies! Whao. This woman is amazingly talented and so gifted with words. So much so, that she has even written some beautiful words that she had put onto a peaceful nature print. She does all the work herself and is a wonderful photographer with such a talent and an eye for capturing memories and God's creation.
Enough of what I have to say, how about you all scroll down and take some time to really get to know this amazing woman. You'll fall in love with her and her fun personality like I did when you read what she has to say!!!
I never planned on being a photographer. Artist, yes.
I was a jewelry designer for 8 years and bought a nice camera to take shots of my work. Then, I became a mom and everything changed. The jewelry took on a much less important role and I went hog wild with the camera.
Now, taking photos is as much a part of my daily life as drinking water or brushing my teeth.
Capturing and documenting my family's memories and milestones is a gift. For future generations to come, our story has been told. We were here. Our lives mattered. Full of love and joy and togetherness and authenticity.
Then, two years ago, something incredible happened. At the encouragement of friends and family, I had the opportunity to begin telling the stories of others with my camera. I have been blown away by the generosity and openness of those I have met along the way. Those who have opened their lives to me and my trusty bag of Nikon gear. Thank you!
Trust me, it is only by God's amazing blessings that I have ANY measure of success at this.
I happily serve the entire Mid-Atlantic region, but specifically Maryland's Eastern Shore and I specialize in Maternity and Newborn Photography with some weddings and engagments thrown in to spice it all up a bit.

I thought I would slip this extra giveaway in. It will end the same day as the one above. A late addition!
This one is cute, too!
Bglorifiedboutique from Etsy was gracious enough
to sponsor an adorable black lace headband!
Here's some info on this lovely boutique:
Our shop started in November because my daughter thought we could make a great team making handmade items with my friend who is a pro at knit and crochet. She is less mobile due to health reasons, so I run the shop and my daughter takes the amazing photos.
We named our shop BglorifiedBoutique because we hope our customers feel glorious wearing them and even more importantly, we wish to give all the Glory to God for our blessings.
Isn't this accessory just fabulous? Uh...I am so jealous! You girls are so luck. :D
