BubbleWood Photography » Wedding & Portrait Photographer based in Manteca, CA

BubbleWood is MOVING……to CALIFORNIA!

When my husband’s company came to him with the prospect of interviewing for a job in California, we had a lot of thinking and praying to do. Neither him nor I have ever lived outside of the state of Alabama, even though we love to travel. It would be a big adjustment for us, but we knew that if there was ever a time to make a big move, it was now, before we have kids. So off to California he went to interview against 3 other candidates and he got it! I am so proud of him and so thankful for how God has favored him in his job. We couldn’t have imagined this, but it is going to be a great new adventure for us. Of course, we are going to miss all our family and friends here in Bama, and I am very sad to leave all my wonderful clients to find new photographers. But ultimately, we know God is placing us in California and we are looking forward to what He has in store for us both in our careers and as a family.

I want to thank everyone who has helped or supported me in any way to get to where I am now. I would not be confident to start again in a totally new place if it weren’t for the great support I received here, so THANKS!!

If you want to stay updated on our new adventures, you can follow me on Instagram, and I will probably post here as well from time to time.

Fall Maternity Session : Manteca CA Photographer

Jamie & Stephen are expecting their first child, a little girl who will be named Harper, who will also be a Clemson fan from birth I imagine (hence the orange & purple). I could tell how excited they are and even though Jamie doesn’t have long to go, she will be enjoying her pregnancy til the very end. I’m so honored when I can play a part in capturing this joyous time for couples. I have yet to experience it all for myself, but whenever that time does come, I will want it captured so I can look back years later (when my lovely child is getting on my nerves I’m sure) and remember that a child is a blessing from God. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Watson!

Anniversary Portraits : Manteca CA Photographer

Heather & Sam are my kind of people. I really hit it off with them, and wish I could have stayed and talked all night. We met up at the church in Pensacola where they got married to get a few portraits that Heather really wanted but didn’t manage to get on their actual wedding day. My hats off to you Heather for still being able to fit into your dress a year later, you looked fabulous! Then we took some photos of them eating cake, and it was homemade goodness. What a great way to celebrate 1 year together! I pray many many more years of love for these two!

I love getting inquiries that give me an opportunity to do something new and different. When Marianne contacted me about doing a craft beer themed engagement session, I thought it would be a really fun and interesting. We met at their favorite hangout, Pensacola Bay Brewery in Downtown Pensacola. It was a warm, sunny day with lots of love between these two. They are so tender with one another with just the right amount of playfulness. I’m so thankful to have met them and shared some nice conversation after the session was over. They are a great couple, and I know they will make a gorgeous bride and groom. Congratulations guys!

My nephew Nolan : Birth Photography : Manteca CA Photographer

It is something I will never forget. Waiting anxiously for 2.5 weeks for my first nephew to be born. He was slow coming, but definitely worth the wait. My sister is such a strong woman and she definitely proved it. Nolan was born on July 29 at 3:54am, 6 lbs 14 oz, 19.5″ and perfect. There was a bit of debate as to who he would look like, you see, my sister was an adorable baby but Adam was not exactly as adorable so everyone was hoping he would look like Michelle. I personally think he is a good mixture of them both. Either way, his aunt Jaimie loves him.

The plan was for me to be in the room and take photos of the whole event, but when the doctor sent her in for a c-section, I was not allowed. Thankfully, one of the nurses was also a photographer and was gracious enough to take my camera in and get some unbelievable photos in the operating room. I could not be more thankful for Courtney Ellis doing such a wonderful thing for us. Thank you!
