A bridal shower and a baby fix


Whew.

Another weekend of running around making the most of every moment.

I crammed my car full of kids and hauled them to all kinds of fun on Fri and Sat. They arrived safely, got fed, didn't fight, and said they had fun, I think that earns me a star on my mommy badge.

I also picked up my wedding dress! Squeeeeeeeeal!

Then this afternoon a wonderful bridal shower was thrown for me by the amazing ladies from my church. I completely feel showered with love. I can't begin to explain what a beautiful and touching event it was and I didn't bring my camera so if you weren't there you will just have to take my word for it. I am blessed to have so many amazing women in my family, my future family, and my church family. I am overwhelmed, and for a change it's not by wedding details and stress but by the outpouring of love from women that are genuinely so happy for Devin and I they just want to celebrate!
34 days till this party is on!

Since I haven't had my camera out in a few I'll give you a baby fix from the newborn shoot I had the pleasure of doing a couple weekends ago. Her name is Evelyn.  Isn't she a doll? I'm getting an edit done here and there when I find free time.  Fortunately mom and dad are understanding about my crazy schedule right now.  I think they are too wrapped up in love with their precious new baby girl to care.  Thank God for that.






I hope the love that's overflowing in my heart tonight has oozed out through this post and found it's way into yours.
And if it didn't at least you can smile at that sweet baby face.

August Break all the day's I missed...

Night Swim



It was so hot last weekend, these kids lived in the pool.  I grabbed my camera when the pool light went on.  I really liked these underwater shots.  I want an underwater housing for my camera, but those cost more than my camera does!  So I will just run along the side lines and chase after these two while they live like fishies.










And yes....he's swimming in his hulk shorts.

August Break Day 6


This has been the summer of "hulk shorts."




He even wears them under his PJ's so he can "hulk out" in the morning.  I want to remember this in 15 years.

Paige and Thomas got married


Thomas is the little brother of a dear friend of mine. Bless her heart she dropped my name to him while he and his bride-to-be hunted for a wedding photographer. When I met with Paige and Thomas I told them I'd never shot a wedding before and frankly I was a tad (ok crazy) nervous to try but they wanted to give me a chance so we booked the date. I am so grateful to the both of them for the opportunity but mostly I feel grateful to have had the chance to meet this beautiful and amazingly sweet bride. Paige is a doll in every way and they make such an adorable couple. I wish them the best and hope they are happy with the chance they took on allowing me to capture this beautiful day.






A lotta love, a lotta prayer, this marriage has started off beautifully.  
Thank you so much for sharing your special day with  me.

August Break Day 1


I wasn't sure I would participate in the August Break this year. After all I've been too busy to take one selfie a month!  But I can't let the tradition end like that and since there are no rules I can take and post photos from my phone! No excuses.
