A cozy afternoon....

My favorite blanket, a hot cappuccino with whipped cream, some homemade peppernuts, and a good book.

This is not something I actually use a lot of, but I still seem to have quite a collection
One morning, I turned up some lipstick tubes, and took some photos.
I was very interested in the lighting changes from artificial to natural.
Check it out!

(Side note: These photos coordinate quite nicely with my background color!)

Morris and Dolores | Wedding Anniversary

First, I am sorry these photos have not been posted before now, and that I haven't posted at all in over a month. Life is quite busy at the present time-school, activities, and a computer crash doesn't help the mix either........I have wanted to post before now, but obviously it hasn't happened.

Now, without further to do, here is a fabulously fun photo shoot I did this summer with Morris and Dolores.
Morris and Dolores are dear friends of ours.....they are another set of grandparents to us.
They are a wonderful Christian couple, who love and serve the Lord.
Morris and Dolores were instrumental in leading my dad to the Christ, and are a great encouragement and example to us.
In August, we went and visited them.....they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary that month, and Dolores asked me to do some photos to commemorate the special occasion!
She was especially excited, and I think Morris enjoyed it more than he thought he would!
He came up with many ideas, and we laughed a lot!

We did three different sessions with different outfits-Here is the first set. Enjoy!

We tried to do an "American Gothic" style shoot-Did we ever have fun!!!!

Chasing with the pitchfork!

Watch out!

This was one of Morris' ideas! His expression is priceless!

One of my favorite children's songs from "The Children's Institues Songbook"
The words are so true!! I hope you take the time to read through them!!!!
Remember, you are SPECIAL just the way you are!

"The Bubble Song" by Loren K. Elms

Verse: 1
Have you ever seen a bubble?
They're super things to see.
And if they're not in trouble,
they're round as they can be.
But if you try to change their shape,
to make them long of make them flat,
there soon won't be a bubble where the troubled bubble's at!

It really doesn't matter it you think you're a star,
or if you think a square is really the shape you are,
For in the world of bubbles all of the ones you find.....
ARE round are round are round are round are round are
round are round are round are ROUND!
The way that God designed (POP!)

Verse: 2
Did you know I'm like a bubble?
God made me perfectly!
And I know that He made me the way I ought to be
And if I get upset because I may not like my size or shape,
I'll think of bubbles, and I'll know-
That God makes no mistake

Kelsey | Hat & Wheat

This summer, my friend Kelsey and I had an impromptu, last 20 minutes of daylight photo shoot. The sky was lovely, the subject was lovely and as always, it was a lot of fun!

Just look at that beautiful sky!

One of my favorites!

Brenton and Lacey | Wedding

This summer, we attended a wedding of a couple from our church.
It was a lovely outdoor wedding located at our neighbor's house just down the street.
Since we sat quite far away from the ceremony, I was able to use all 26x zoom of my camera!
Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Brenton Nichols!

Seeing his bride walk up the aisle~

Seeing her groom waiting for her~

Black and White-Love the simplicity!

The wedding party!

The sweet flower girl!

The Kiss!
