it’s been a while

it’s been a while

It’s been a while since I posted any photography work around here.  I stepped back from doing sessions full time in October of 2012.  Apparently I needed time to focus on some other things :)  In the last fifteen months, I haven’t done any marketing or advertising, no mini sessions or promotions.  When I stopped pursuing photography as a career, Branden and I both felt like the Lord would just have us pray through any photography opportunities that came my way.

So, I have done a few sessions, just as they fit into our schedule and list of priorities that Jesus is rearranging.  I wanted to share a few of my favorite images from some of those sessions here.  I love photography :)  I love working with people and giving families this amazing, tangible way to freeze time – interactions, personalities, relationships – all frozen into an image, a piece of history, their story, for them to hold and remember and relive over and over!

Anyways, over the next couple of weeks, I’ll be sharing a few sessions from the last year.  Like a said, I didn’t shoot a ton, but I hope you’ll still enjoy!  Here’s a session from July.  This is actually my uncle and his gorgeous family, visiting the states from Europe, and hanging out with me and my camera :)  It was actually the first time I’d seen my uncle in about ten years!  And the first time meeting his beautiful wife and kiddos.  Such a treat to get to capture them during their stateside tour.  We really just went out into a field and had some fun!

I am thankful for photography :)  It’s been almost two weeks since I did my last session.  I can’t say that I’m really done working, since there are still sessions and pictures to edit, deliver, etc.  But I am done with the shooting side of the business for now :)  I’ve been capturing families and their kiddos, weddings, seniors, even doing school pictures for more than 8 years now (crazy!).  I know the Lord is changing our direction for the business, but I sure have loved getting to meet so many awesome people!

I think of photography as freezing time, being able to actually hold a piece of it in your hand!  We all want to share our stories right?  Photography is a way to not just share them, but relive and preserve your memories for generations to come!  Not a lot of things can do that :)

I wanted to share a few images from one of my last sessions with you!  This is the B family.  Daddy B is away serving our country right now.  I’m so glad we got to capture them all together before he left!  Thank you B family, for your service and sacrifice for our country.  And thank you for letting me be a part of this chapter in your lives.  I hope these images bless you!

one week left!

one week left!

Well folks, I’ve got a week left before I stop doing sessions :)  I’m sure it will hit me later, but right now I’m feeling ready!  Ready for organization and a break, I’m ready to have my house in order and not stay up until 1am editing.  I’m ready to make stuff for the holidays – oh the holidays!!  My favorite!  I’ve even been thinking about what I’d like to do with a little extra time (not that there still isn’t lots going on around here!)

I am ready, but for right now, for today, I’m still really blessed to be doing something I love ~ capturing relationships, families being together, helping people freeze time :)

I’ve been wanting to share pics of this sweet family for a couple of weeks (and I know they’ve been waiting too :)  Mom, Dad, two beautiful girls, and even their pup – who posed like a champ!

Sisters :)

I always try to take some of just Mom and Dad together – I love how this one came out!

I can say this since I know this family personally – this young lady is beautiful inside and out!  I know she makes her parents so proud!

And this little girl?  Let’s just say that she lights up a room (and the entire wilderness area we shot at!)  Oh to be young and have this much spunk!

Thank you F family, for a wonderful session!  I’m so glad we got to do it before the end of the month!!
