This is Taylor Parish. She is an amazing senior. I fell in love with her the minute we talked. She has a beauty that is so evident, not only in her appearance , but also in her heart! We had lots of fun on this shoot,  and I could have shot her all day. She was so captivating.  Its so refreshing to see a teenager that is so humble, and not prideful in anyway. She is beautiful, but she is sweet, and compassionate too, and that to me is true beauty!

Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God’s handwriting – a wayside sacrament.  Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

My favorite couple is back on the blog. Oh how I adore them. They just melt me! The way the are with one another , the love that is written upon their face, and comes from their hearts!

“With you in my life I am blessed.”

A friend asked me to take pictures of his parents while they were here visiting from the Philippines, I was excited to not only meet them, but to capture a little part of them, that they would treasure. They were such a sweet nice couple, who made me feel right at ease the moment they stepped out of their car. I hope you can see a little of that love here in this sneak peek. Thank you Jon for asking me to take their photos! I had a wonderful time, and feel blessed to have met them. You have great parents, and that shows in the person that you are!

You are my sunshine~

This is my grandson, Kayden. He is a year old now. When you are young, you cant wait to grow up, and time seems to just drag on by, but when are in your forties it just seems to fly right by you in a blink of an eye!  I love this little guy with all of my heart. He helps me to slow down, and enjoy the small things in life. This is the age of curiosity and exploration. Everything is new to him and he loves the simple things , like grabbing his feet and playing with them in the car, feeding his food to my dog, and pulling everything out of my cupboards. Melts me when he says Nana which is very seldom, his favorite word is Papa, and boy does he love his Papa. He has him wrapped around his finger! I love all of his expressions in these images we captured and I LOVE him! I thank God everyday for the blessings in my life and he is truly one of those blessings!

Are the eggs all still in here?
Hello Grandma , what are you doing? You want me to wear this?

Love shooting little ones. You just never know what your going to get. They always make you smile no matter what they do though. I have been blessed in this business to have the nicest clients, and this is one of them! Lesly has been coming to me since Ayden was born, and its so fun to see him grow! His smile brings a smile to your face, and his non smiling stare will melt your heart! He is just to cute. Thank you Lesly for sharing him once again! Hope you have a wonderful Easter!

I’m not going to smile , and wrapping these eggs around me is not helping at all!My favorite! Beautiful family!

Baptism with smiles~

April 11, 2011

My son was baptised yesterday and it was AWESOME! Brought tears to my eyes to see him accept Jesus into his heart and come up out of that water! It was so sweet! He was to short to sit on the step, and not go under the water, so Pastor Mitch let him sit on his lap. Was just amazing. I want to thank his youth Pastor Simone.  Simone is so awesome with all the youth! Pastor Verna , Pastor Mitch and Pastor Dana. I could not belong to a more loving church than Soul Harvest Worship Center!  A great new memory for our family!

Brettie was such a beauty! I’m so happy to be featured by the great ”Inspire Me Baby”! Love my job and my clients!  This was my favorite image from the session~ Check it out here~ Inspire Me Baby

This is Brettie. She is a super sweet girl with beautiful hair and eyes. She wore a necklace that had the words faith on it and I loved it! I pray before each session. Always ask God to help me to bring out the subjects spirit and capture a little bit of that in the images that I shoot.  We were going to do the whole session at the Park although earlier that day I had thought her ballerina outfit would look great at this little rustic location I shoot at sometimes, but we would have no time to shoot at the Park then head back to the other location. God had other ideas. We were about to shoot her in her ballerina attire and this guy was making me a bit nervous so I told her lets pack up and go to the other location, and I’m so glad we did. Love the images that we were able to get. If you see beauty in these then my goal was reached. Thank you Brettie. Hope you enjoy your images!
