Allie + Bob are sweet friends of mine who love the Lord and are bright lights in our world! They recently got married and reached out for Christmas card pictures as Christmas 2020 was their first Christmas as a married couple! Yay! To top off this super fun session…they brought their sweet pup!
Christina + Thomas !! Boy oh boy if these two don’t give you all the warm fuzzy feelings I’m going to need you to take another long look at that second picture and reevaluate. Every element of this coastal styled wedding was beyond PERFECT! Christina + Thomas were a joy to work with and the vendors really helped make all this magic happen! Check them out below:

Fredlisha Lansana (Fred) is a mother of three, U.S Army veteran, Vice President of the Phi Alpha Honors Society, and now, a graduate of Methodist University’s Bachelor of Social Work program and candidate for the University of Southern California’s MSW. I know, go ahead and take a deep breath because that was a lot of accomplishments in one sentence, but, that’s exactly what Fred is- accomplished and tenacious. ⠀
“Being a student over 40 with three young children is a challenge in itself. Then coronavirus came into the picture and I had to learn how to balance being not only a student and mother but also fill the roles of teacher, doctor, and spiritual counselor. You name it and I (along with many others) have had to BECOME it.” ⠀
But Fred is no stranger to adaptation. As a regular volunteer with the Fayetteville area Dream Center, a nonprofit dedicated to serving the underprivileged and homeless, she’s learned to adapt, meet people where they are, and “become” what they need. After graduate school, she hopes to once again serve our nation’s military by being a social worker specializing in social change and military innovation- a role that she’s been preparing for for the past 4 years. ⠀
Best of luck Fred, we’re all cheering you on.
