three sisters

I had the opportunity to shoot these three beautiful sisters, the one on the far left (above) being one of my dearest friends from my MOPS group for several years now. Krissa and her sisters make a very pretty picture, don't you think?

A tribute to sisters... good times.

Happy New Year, friends!

the bad

So, back to my story... a photo shoot with my kids (and my mom) was not so easy. There was a lot of goofing off, fake smiles,

dancing/fighting on the tables,

and one little boy that refused to admit that he had to go potty.

Despite that, memories were made and even a few "hallmark" moments ;)

the good

Taking pictures of your own children is a challenge. Here are some of the good... later I will share some of the bad and the ugly (well, so to speak ;)

Grace has seen plenty of leaf photos with the many photo shoots I've been doing lately and she couldn't wait to get in on this action! Little Luke almost blends right in...

Taking a walk with Moo-moo. And if you look really closely you can see Cole running up ahead.

Grace is the easiest to get to cooperate (she should be, at age seven!)

And then there's Luke...

It looks like he's carrying a huge branch when he's really just climbing the tree.
Ahhh.... the good (I know, the list is short.)

I am thankful for the opportunity to capture lasting memories for my friend, Margaret, and her beautiful family. Margaret's story has been a blessing and encouragement to me over the years. And here are three reasons that I'm sure her and her husband are thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving, friends...

on the move

This beautiful, blue eyed girl was on the move! But if you could capture a moment, then it was totally worth it...

I love those eyes.

these moments

It's the shot in between "the shots" that I really love.

It's these moments that I truly desire to capture.

It's joy and laughter....

and love.

lucky me

Take a look at these beautiful children. How could I go wrong?

And this girl loved to have her picture taken. Girls usually do ;)

the boys

Not to be outdone by their sister, "baby girl", these handsome boys need some time in the spotlight.

family of five

A beautiful family inside and out. It was my privilege to capture a moment in time with this family of five. And the fall colors... oh, the fall colors.
