Sneak Peek....

Just wanted to share a sneak peek to a fun maternity shoot that I did last week! I'll be sharing a full post in the New Year of this beautiful mommy to be! Since the holidays are here, I am taking this time off so that I can enjoy this beautiful and special holiday with my family. I just want to be present in the "moments" because this time seems to fly by so fast! I am really looking forward to beginning the New Year, implementing new changes, continuing to progress and absorb as much knowledge and skill from the other talented photographers around me and meet some more wonderful and amazing people in 2010. Thank you for sharing in my journey! Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

It's been a while since I've written about my current photo shoots. Everything got so busy, it was just nearly impossible to edit, process the pictures, keep up with my personal blog, keep up with life and all it's responsibilities....that coming up with something to say about my experience just seemed like "one more thing to do." Now that life has gotten back to being a little more managable, I've made it a new priority on my list to make sure that I share about my experiences with the families that I am lucky enough to meet and help capture some special moments. And really, there is no better post to start this off with than by writing about our very special friends Austin and Carrie.

We met Carrie and Austin through our church and feel so blessed by their friendship. Austin and Carrie have been nothing but hospitable...inviting us in their home for holidays, sharing lots of fun nights together as one big family, birthdays, lunch dates, playdates, and even a date night sans the kids! Moving out here with no friends or family in the beginning was really a challenge, but overtime we've really gotten to know Carrie and Austin and feel that they have become our family and closest friends. Travis LOVES his buddies Issac and Caleb....they always have so much fun playing together while Derek and Clara seem to have the same heart for mischief :) These friendships remind me of my days growing up in the church and all the friendships that we had and maintained until adulthood. Their special friendship has really helped us to feel connected to our new home and gives us the support and encouragement we need during the "tough" days. So, thank you Austin and Carrie for your friendship, kindness and love that you shower on us daily. We love you guys!
