My name is Free Akins and I love photography. I take pictures very day.  I was not born with a camera in my hand, I've spent most of my life learning how to be a photographer and I've loved every minute. I’m a mum to 3 children, the other half of my hubbs, and human of one cat. My other loves are hugs from my kids, coffee, music, knitting, growing things, and chocolate. When was the last time you had a portrait taken? I want every mom, single girl, and grandmother to feel beautiful and to know they have to exist in photographs. I capture emotion, your kids, your beautiful newborn baby in your arms, your tears when you say I Do. You are not defined by your weight, age, or income doesn’t let those things hold you back from being in photos with your children or having a pamper day and photoshoot just for you. Don’t wait until you lose some weight or have more time, you are beautiful now, and I want to make you see that.  Mums, your children will never be as cute, small, awkward, or a baby again; don’t miss capturing these moments.  I want you to have your family and priceless moments, in all their glory, for all time in photos.  

I focus on portraits and weddings. My portrait sessions include professional hair & makeup styling, a location of your choice (in a studio or outside), and a 2 hour photoshoot.  You can bring 3-5 outfits of your choice; casual, formal, lingerie it's all up to you. All of my wedding packages include two photographers; my husband and I team-up for weddings. Last, but never least, are maternity and newborn portraits. I specialize in lifestyle newborn and maternity portraits. I believe there is no scripting to children or families and I prefer to photograph families in their homes, interacting, and never forced. I would love to photograph your baby’s birth story.  

I offer portfolio boxes and matted prints. You also receive a CD of all the images you purchase.Call me to discuss your portrait session!
