Creativity and Candy!

4GIRLSSHIRTSHope everyone had a Happy Halloween filled with lots of fun and treats!!

This year was a little different for us.  One of my daughters and some of her friends decided to make their own costumes.  They got the idea from Pinterest. (I would link to the original, but I wasn’t the one that found it so I don’t have it.) The girls all came to my house with their shirts, paints, and whatever else they needed. They sprawled out in my driveway and went to town.  There was lots of smiles and giggles and a few “oops” along the way, but the final result was awesome!!  My daughter said she wants to make her costume from now on.  Sounds good to me!! Hope you enjoy!!

It’s All About the Soccer!!

Two posts in two days!  I know!  Can’t believe either! 🙂

As I was looking through some old photos the other day, I came across one of my doodlebug playing soccer her first year.  Didn’t know at the time how she’d do or if she would even stick with it.  Here we are 6 years later and she is going strong!  She is one that wants to experience everything, including every sport there is.  However, it always comes back to soccer.  Nothing can interfere with soccer.  My gal has some big goals in this department that I have no doubt she will one day achieve.  So, I thought a stroll down soccer memory lane might be nice.  Hope you enjoy!

The Bond

DSC_0249_bwsm

This is probably my favorite shot from a recent photo shoot.  Looking at this image now makes me wonder what they were talking about.  Was she passing along bits of wisdom or just sharing a funny story?   The bond between mother and child is such a strong one.   It’s a bond I’m thankful for every day!!

A Couple of Dogs and a Great Family!

I hope everyone is doing well and getting ready for Christmas!!  It sure did come fast!  We have been covered in ice where I am right now, and I’ve caught myself missing summer and spending the afternoons at the waterpark.  Normally, I LOVE this cold weather this time of year, but being trapped in the house for a few has me daydreaming of warmer weather!  However, before this lovely ice blanketed us, I got to spend a beautiful afternoon with this family!!  I got a little carried away with the picture taking with this group, between having the dogs in the session and the kids enjoying the neighborhood ducks, it made for quite a lot of moments!!

Beautiful Wedding Day

It was a beautiful October afternoon when they said, “I do!”

Normally I don’t shoot weddings but when asked to do this one, I couldn’t refuse.  I remember getting the call when this gal came onto the scene 20 years ago.  (Not to mention her mom and I have been friends since the 7th grade.)   This beautiful baby grew into a beautiful young woman and met the man of her dreams.  So needless to say it was an honor to capture this special day and be a part of it.

We were afraid it was going to get rained out, but Mother Nature changed her mind and decided to give us a gorgeous day.  The sun was out, the temperature was perfect, and it was time for a wedding!!  Thought I would share some of these moments with all of you!
