She Flew

The sun began to set.

And then she flew.

Tiny dancer!

Paloma at Seven Months

We made a wish, and you came true.
Muuwah!

Once you’re parents, your marriage matters more, not less, because someone special is counting on you.

I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day. When it’s cold outside, I’ve got the month of May. Well, I guess you’ll say what can make me feel this way? My girl!

First we had each other. Then we had you. Now we have everything!

The Chicken Whisperer

IMG_5737 E JLP

Chickens make wonderful pets.

Chickens help teach responsibility with daily feeding and watering chores.

Chickens provide bonus surprises — eggs! Healthy eating!

Here’s my favorite chicken whisperer with her sweet “Cocoa.” I wouldn’t be surprised if she doesn’t have doll clothes on Cocoa sometime soon. Maybe she’ll even push her in a doll stroller. Cocoa would love that!

Happy Hostas

Rain has been abundant this spring and summer. The fauna and flora in our area are all very happy. The best watering comes from heavenly watering, a wise gardener once told me. Better than any spigot and garden hose.

Hosta blooms captured with my macro lens right after an early morning rain:

The H Family

A fun family + a beautiful day + a country setting = a GREAT time “shooting” this family!

These parents and their teens were a joy to capture and though we had just met, they were naturals and we had fun together.  I loved how they coordinated their colors to brighten the country landscape and the rustic settings.

The H Family chose to have their photos taken near a very special, old tree in their neighborhood complete with the wooden wagon and the biggest rope and wooden swing I’ve ever seen. Can you imagine how high that swing might go?

When they asked if I’d shoot them as they held their guns, I knew I’d be safe with them!

This fun-loving couple celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary in September …  this would make a great celebration spot with wine, cheese and crackers,  and moonlight!

Aren’t they the cutest? I love their bright blue eyes and happy smiles!

The country setting and great light made me grateful for this beautiful afternoon shoot … I’m glad they left this old stump in the yard!

We ended their family “shoot” by including their beautiful Labs — these guys are all brothers and couldn’t have been sweeter to pose for this shot. I hope they got some good treats! This would make one great canvas wall art for their home. What a pleasure it was to meet this family and capture some special moments for their memory albums and wall frames. One may even become their Christmas photo for 2014!

Thank you to the H Family for purchasing my photography gift certificate at the Silent Auction, and for supporting our Heart for Honduras mission trip! I was blessed in many ways, especially by going as part of the mission team and by meeting and photographing your dear family.
