Words to live by...

From the fullness of His grace we have received one blessing after

Remember who you are and you will walk through life blessed and beautiful

When you reach the heart of life you shall find beauty in all things

Children are a gift from God

Never underestimate the power of prayer

balancing act


I (finally) caught the boys on film (er, compact flashcard) putting the new easel to use. I've left this beast out in the living room lately in an attempt to spark the kids' inner artists :) Here's what we did:

1. bought a pack of sponges at meijer ($0.99 on sale)

2. cut up said sponges into several random shapes of varying sizes

3. poured washable tempera paint onto cheap jelly roll pans with sponges

4. let the artists create!
5. clean-up was super easy :) we will definitely be doing this project again!

{{Doubly Blessed}}

Determined to get this family their sneak peek up, I've published two posts in less than 24 hours! I know mom thought these two didn't cooperate as well as planned, but I thought we got some really GREAT images :) Little Mr L caved to a nap mid-session while his brother Mr C had other plans of grinning at the camera - what a FUN experience to capture twins with my lens!!! Thanks again for being such great friends - God has truly blessed you!

Miss A {2 year session}

I had the wonderful opportunity to hang out with these two princesses this past weekend. We've gotten to know them a bit more while camping the past couple years. Little Miss A was here to document her 2nd birthday. Big sis K tagged along and was ready to strike a pose anytime her little sis needed a break from the camera......and let me tell ya, she was a natural! They both have the most amazing blue eyes (a photographer's dream subject :) Enjoy your sneak peek mom and dad!

Mr C {12month old session}

I was excited to finally have the opportunity to photograph this little cutie this past weekend! His mom and I met in Bible study a couple years ago. I look forward to capturing some more memories for this family :) Enjoy your sneak peek!
