Vroom, Vroom!

I had a lot to choose from this week, since both my bridals involved some type of vehicle…  But, I kept coming back to this image!  I don’t know why, I just love it! They are a gorgeous couple, and I just love her expression!  So, enjoy my “Vroom, Vroom” entry!

I heart faces-Beach photos!

It has been FOREVER since I participated in a contest with I Heart Faces!  I feel like I am such a slacker, but really I have just been busy!  When I saw this them up… I didn’t think I could participate!  And, then I realized how stupid I was, because I just got back from Hawaii.  But, as I was scrolling through my files to get to my Hawaii pictures, I came across this picture that I took when we went camping.  It was taken on the beach of Otter Creek Reservoir when we went fishing.
These are my kids watching Grandpa as he casts his fishing pole.  I loved the reflection of the sun off the water, along with the clouds and mountains in the background.  I love that the kids are focused on grandpa… all except little Sydney, who was watching her dad behind me.  I love this picture, and it beats out my Hawaii pictures!  :)
There are some wonderful entries over at I heart faces… go check them out!!

I was so excited for this challenge… until I started to make a collage!  I have a hard time seeing them together and getting them how I want!  So, I have worked on this for like 3 days, and have decided oh well!!  :)
The girls were outside riding their trikes and scooters yesterday, and then they started to play by the tulips!  We are so excited about the flowers this year, and they are finally… yes, finally, in bloom!!  This is what I came up with !  I loved how they were smelling them, even though it was smashing them!  They were just too cute!

Babies, Kids, Family, and Engagements!

Trying to get caught up!  I know I am always behind… and it probably won’t change anytime soon!  :)  But, I thought I would post a few pictures of what I have been doing lately!

And… I am so excited to say that I am doing my first wedding in June!!  WEll, my first paid wedding!  My cousin’s son is getting married and asked me to do it for them!  I am really excited, and really nervous!  I hope it turns out okay!

Here are some of their engagement pictures!  I thought they turned out really well!









Aren’t they a beautiful couple!! 

I photographed a fun family a few weeks ago too, but I didn’t get their pictures posted!  We also did some of their adorable kids!  We had a good time, and I had a lot of fun with them!













Aren’t they cute!!

Sydney, Madisyn, and my niece Brinley, just competed in the Sevier County Cinderella Pageant.  We needed to get some good pictures of them for the photogenic portion of it!  Here are the ones we chose for Sydney and Madisyn, and here are some of the pictures we took of Brinley!


Madisyn, she is such a doll!!  LOVE HER!!  :)


Sydney!  Aren’t her eyes just gorgeous!!  I barely touched them.. they always sparkle!


Brinley… this is the picture we entered!  Isn’t she beautiful!  She is such a fun girl!





Isn’t she beautiful!! 


Here are a couple more of Syd and Madi!




And… since this is already a long post, I about forgot my baby niece!!  Elizabeth was 2 months old in these pics!  She is beautiful!





She has the most beautiful eyes and eyelashes!  She is such a sweetie and I had a tone of fun taking pictures of her!!

So… I am caught up for the time being!!  Sorry for the long post!  I could say I will try and be better in the future… but, it probably won’t happen, so I won’t lie!  :)

Communal Global’s Ultimate Picture contest!

Some of my friends are part of this new website entitled… Communal Global!  They have contributor’s from all over the world that post a picture of what their “Today” is like in their part of the world!  Great idea, huh!  It is fun to look at too!

But, today they have opened a new contest and have Miz Booshay as their first judge!  We are supposed to enter a photo that describes our today!  Since it doesn’t have to be a face… it can be anything, I am going to try something different!  And, since our today right now is snowy and miserable, again, I will post something about that!  lol

This shot is of Madi’s feet, as we were out playing in the snow!  She brought me her boots, and wanted the 2 different colors!  She is so cute, she wouldn’t let me switch them out.  But, they sure looked fun as she was playing!  And does she ever play in the snow… as you can see, the snow up to her knees does not stop her!  Even if it makes her fall, which she does plenty of times!  She loves the snow!  So, this moment captures my today… because this is what we will be doing today!  And, I want to remember her happy times in the knee high snow with her 2 different colored boots!

Head over to Communal Global and check out their fun contest and website!

Drama, in Black and White!

We were at the park a couple weeks ago, when I looked over and saw my daughter standing by the swings like this.  When I had first saw her, she was looking at me… but I wasn’t quick enough with the camera.  But, I still loved the look of this shot.  The line of the swings and their shadows.  The lines of the poles.  The suns perfect light on her head and all around.  And, curious little Madi… hand still on the swing she so wants to get in, but distracted by the people out of sight of the camera playing on their bikes.  Which does she want to do more?  I love her curiosity and the way she wants to do so much at one time!  She makes life such a joy!

Week 12 @ i heart faces-Angles

It’s angles this week at i heart faces!  Something unusual and different is something that all people are drawn to!  So, this week… bring on the angles! 
I chose this photo of my brother and sister in law!  I loved the angle on this shot!   I had a fun time shooting them, and this is one of my favorite shots of them!

Bundle up!!

There are some awesome pictures already over at i heart faces!  I’m always amazed and I love, gasp, stalking others pages and pictures to see their ideas!  Head over and see their wonderful pictures!
This is one of my favorite pictures of Madi this winter.  We have had a lot of snow days this year, and the kids absolutely love the snow!  So we have bundled up and gone out a lot!  Madi especially loves it, and would run around in it barefoot if I would let her (yes, she has tried it!)   I just love her expression in this picture for some reason, and I keep coming back to it.  I love my baby girl… and it seems like she is growing up so fast.  Maybe that is why I love it, because it expresses her quietness… the moment she is taking it all in!  Anyways, here it is.
