Mindy Vinson & Shelley Rasmussen

We met in 2004 when Mindy captured the heart of Shelley’s youngest son in their sophomore English class. Over the next few years Scott and Mindy's teenage romance blossomed and it was quite clear that the local high school’s “Cutest Couple” weren't just high school sweethearts. They were soulmates. Scott popped the question soon after they graduated and we became “family” when the lovebirds tied the knot in 2007.

In 2008, while Scott was away at boot camp, Mindy poured her love of art, photography and people into a professional portraiture career. Her first portfolio model was their newborn daughter. As her business grew she realized she needed a partner and knew immediately who to ask…

the person who loved photography as much as her…

the person who captured some of her own most precious memories…

the person who was hiding in the bushes like the paparazzi when Scott proposed to her…

Her mother-in-law!

Mindy and her hubby have four children...three beautiful daughters and an energetic son who loves his cars and "rawrs" {dinosaurs}. Every day is an adventure in the Vinson household! 

Shelley is a wife, a mom to three grown children, a mom-in-law to the wonderful people they chose to join the family, a not-so-evil step-mom to a teenage boy and a nana to eight grandchildren.

We love people, coffee, the beach, road trips {especially to the beach!}, campfires, hunting for yard sale treasures, creating DIY projects for our homes, all things Disney and spending time with family.

So, what about you?

If you are like us, you know that time passes much too quickly. We look back on our own lives and it feels like we…

graduated from high school yesterday.

met our husbands yesterday.

got married yesterday.

had our babies yesterday.

Then we think about today…and realize it too will be gone before we know it. As much as we want to stop the clock and hold on to every little detail about our lives, we know it’s impossible. Memories fade with time. Details become fuzzy. That is why we both have a passion for capturing as many memories as we can with our cameras.
