Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my work! I would be honored to be your photographer!
My business is SO special to me. I devote countless hours to my clients and strive to give you the best experience possible. I'm naturally a perfectionist and a people pleaser. I love watching your children grow, calming you down when you get stressed and nervous on your wedding day, being a part of your life, and getting to know you! I love my clients! I love keeping up with you on social media, cheering for you during happy times and praying for you during tough times. I feel like my clients are so much more than just people I take photos of. You become my friends and family. Great photos happen when you're comfortable, so it's my goal for you to have fun and be relaxed. Photos can be nerve racking! We're all our own worst critics, but God made you who you are and you're one of a kind! Just put on something you feel comfortable in and have fun!
Who is Summer Herlocker anyway??? Well, here we go...
I'm a mama to the most wonderful child on the planet, my daughter Sunny. Becoming a mother is the greatest thing that's ever happened to me! Mama to 3 of the coolest dogs you'll ever meet. Proud wife of Wes.
I'm goofy and say random off the wall things.
My niece Mary is so special to me. Being her aunt is one of my favorite things. So proud of that child!
I may very likely start staring at a patch of clovers looking for one with 4 leaves. Speaking of 4 leaf clovers...I'm pretty much a magical 4 leaf clover finding wizard and have crazy clover finding talents. Just ask my friends! ;)
I'm an only child.
I was a cheerleader. Mainly because I was horrible at every sport I attempted.
I am not a morning person. Not one bit of me. I've always stayed up late and slept in. It's just in my DNA.
I love comfy clothes . As soon as I get home it's straight to the pj's! Well I just love clothes for that matter and have way more than I should. I prefer online shopping because shopping in person is just exhausting.
I've perfected some crazy noises that help get the attention of both dogs and children during sessions. Have also been known to jump like a frog.
I love working out. Yoga totally makes me a better person. Hot Yoga is the greatest thing ever. My yoga teacher Heather does more for me than she'll ever know! (If you're in/around Stanly County come join us at Flow Yoga in Locust!)
I absolutely cannot go to bed if my feet are dirty. I hate being barefoot and always wear shoes, bedroom slippers or socks.
I love make up. I love watching Jaclyn Hill make up tutorials! If you haven't looked her up you have to!
I'm OCD. In my personal life-I always know where everything is, am not a fan of change and you better not make my toilet paper roll towards the back! ;) In my business-I obsess over photos trying to make them as perfect as possible. Little things that most people don't notice will drive me nuts!
I'm a hoarder of sentimental things. If somethings special you just can't get rid of it!
I know how to knit, but can only make scarves.
I was a Special Education teacher for 6 years. I have always had a special place in my heart for those with disabilities and I always will!
I cannot sing. Not even a little. It's really bad!
I love to dance. I probably look ridiculous but its so much fun.
I get a massage once a month and it's such a life saver!
I'm not a dressy kind of girl. I prefer pajamas, as we've already discussed, but if I have to wear real clothes then jeans and a comfy shirt are my go to. Let's don't even talk about high heels. Those are just evil.
I love the smell of clean laundry!
I'm 34 years old and not quite sure how the heck I'm that old. Life sure does fly by!
My dad passed away Jan. 19, 2018. I think no matter how old you are when you lose a parent it makes you feel like a lost child. My daddy was one of the best! I like to believe I have an extra special angel now.
I believe life is too short to be unhappy. Love as hard as you can and laugh every single day.
Thank you for actually reading this list of randomness that makes me who I am. I'd love to get to know you and all of the strange and beautiful things that make you who you are!
"No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and mo mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him."
