A spot to showcase the beautiful moments that were captured through my lens. I have found something that I can never out grow or become bored with. Let me be the one you choose to capture your most precious moments . Check out my family blog here.
A love story of seven years! These two met each other in high school and went to both Junior and Senior Prom together. He served a mission for two years and they made life choices over the year. In November of 2014 he asked her to be his for eternity and on June 21, 2014 they were married and sealed in the Washington DC temple!!
The day started out misty and a light drizzle and when 1:00 pm came around the clouds parted and the sun began to shine leaving us with a heavy ceiling and blanket of humidity. Once the ceremony was performed in the temple we walked outside to God's masterpiece of beautiful colors and blue skies AND a beyond perfect day temperature wise! Thank you Heavenly Father for such tender mercies and beautiful blessings.
Our son and our daughter-in-law! Our family has grown by two feet and we couldn't be happier! I seriously am so happy and thrilled to be a mother-in-law!!.. But no one wants to see these pictures!
The Washington DC Temple is very special to our family! My parents were sealed in this temple and this July they will be married for 43 years! Bill and I were also sealed in this temple and this July we will mark our 25th Anniversary and now we have seen our son, marry and seal in this temple and I can't help but feel things that are too tender to put words too!
Miss Y, will soon be marrying my son for time and all eternity in the Washington, DC Temple! We are so excited and looking forward to her becoming an eternal member of our family! She is beautiful, intelligent, witty and so creative. She is a definite jewel and we have known her for almost 7 years! I feel I got to watch a young girl blossom into a stunning woman and I couldn't be happier if I had hand picked her myself for S.
S, is one grade above K and he looked so dashing in his tuxedo! These two clean up pretty good! I love the closer bond that these two have because we have moved back and because they attend the same high school. Now, they know the same people, the same teachers and have similar experiences. Not to mention S, gives K a ride to and from school now that he has his license!!!
I love these two!!
This area was so fun! It had a caboose to take pictures with!
Miss K was invited to Prom by A! They share an aunt and uncle between them. My brother, is K's uncle, which is my brother and my sister-in-law is A's aunt, his father and her are siblings. Capiche? The two of them were off to prom and it was a lot of fun for her to be with her cousin S as well! The theme of prom was The Masquerade. This mask was her invitation.
The giving of the corsage and boutonniere
and finally a plethora of obligatory pictures! Both of them were great sports at posing for pictures for their mama's!
My nephew is growing up! He is a junior and went to prom and while editing through his pictures I got a little emotional! S, is such a good kid and he is kind and everything about him exudes greatness. He surpassed me in height when he was 10 years old! He has always been at the top of the growth charts, also! Needless to say I LOVE THIS KID!!! He plays football and basketball and GUESS WHAT? He was nominated by his student body for prom court and at the end of post prom his name was drawn and he won a BLUE RAY and he won something for his team in the volleyball tournament! I would say he had an amazing night! Some of these pictures I see my dad's eyes in Sam! I'm going to be a weeping mess when he graduates.
S, and my sister! She did a lot on this day! She did all the typical pre prom running around, made dozens and dozens of cookies for prom and after prom and also made dozens of banana chocolate chip muffins and three flowered leis and to top it off we both were there the night before decorating and we chaperoned the after prom and were there til 6 am!! I'm sure she would do it all again, just to see her boy smile! Love them both!!
Ms. J came to visit us with my nephews! We had such a great time with them all here and we ATE way too much as always! She also happens to be my mother-in-law. She is a lady who loves her family and loves to have a good time. Her laugh is most infectious and when you hear her you just have to laugh right along with her! She lost her husband while her family was still young. She had three boys still left to rear and she did a fantastic job! Life has been hard but with the rain it has brought many beautiful rainbows as well! She is a woman when given lemons she will make lemonade, lemon bars and a lemon pound cake!
I had mentioned prior that this had been a long day for our entire family and everyone just wanted to have fun and not be directed and they wanted ICE CREAM!! My niece is gorgeous and she is super tall and only in the 8th grade! I WANT her height!! All she wanted to do was climb rocks and feel the wind in her hair and I wanted to direct and pose her! She kept it fun and jovial and was just posing herself in many different contortions. I love me some Abby time! But, this is what you get when you don't listen to your photographer!
When the group is just over the entire day. We had spent hours eating a great Mother's day dinner and time at the cemetery and then at the lake! This group was just done! My son did not want any part of takng pics. Sometimes, you just have to exhale and say we will do it another day! I find that taking pictures of my own family is the hardest. We should also take pictures IN THE BEGINNING Just thought I would play around with some new photo filters and software. These people were done being here and all I heard was they wanted ICECREAM!
