Ice Ice Baby!

We're having an ice storm today, I think this one is worse than the one they hyped up for last week :( Last night, right before bed, it was 60 degrees, today it's raining and freezing on contact.. check these pics out!

This is the lilac tree by my house. It's great for measuring ice! HA! Read: close to my door so I don't fall on my butt. Hee hee!

One of my kids' bike handles. They conveniently left it on the sidewalk.. :(

The fence by the road, check out the glaze on the road too.. yikes!

Thanks for looking!

Merry Christmas

To all of my faithful blog followers, I'd like to wish you a Merry Christmas and of course a Happy New Year.

Please be careful out on the roads and make sure you enjoy the time with your family.

We are expecting Santa at our house, so I'll be sure to keep everyone updated on how the kids made out!

Edit: the kids made out like Bandits, with lots from Santa! Their favorite things are the simple things, like the board games we bought them. They LOVE the boardgame Battleship! Go figure!

Baby it's cold outside!

We're expecting somewhere between 1/4 and 1/2 inch of ice tonight, it's sleeting now, and we may get some snow too.. It's frigid out!!! But to take my mind off the weather (and my cold toes) I'm posting some great summer shots! Oh.. if any of my family is peeking into the blog, some of these images may look familiar when you get your calendar.. ha ha ha!

Hope you enjoy!!!!

In the summer I frequent my neighbor's yard, they have tons of flowers and there's something constantly blooming back there. I love these!

I distinctly remember taking this picture. My daughter ran into the house and yelled "Mom, the clouds look like popcorn today" and they did! This is a sure sign of a summer shot!

And for my all time favorite place to shoot landscapes, the Maskunky Marsh. I love this place! But it doesn't love me, I come home covered in bugbites, it's terrible.. but worth it for the shots I get!

Remember Don and Melinda and of course Scooter? Well, this is their Grandaughter who's visiting from out of state. She was fast and of course did the opposite of what needed her to do, but I still got some great shots :)

We asked her to pray and we got this.. isn't it adorable?

I love closeups of little one's faces.. so cute!

I've been working on templates lately and I made this one from a few of the great pictures I got of her. Hope you enjoy!

Meet Noe! Noe and his family are some of the bravest people I know. Noe was diagnosed in June with Medulloblastoma. Noe's Mom Jenn is friends with the daughter of one of my online friends. Jenn's friend wanted to give the family some pictures for Christmas and I was in the area, so I supplied the pictures! Even though on my way, some guy threatened to call security.. what an ordeal!

Noe was on the run! I like this cute candid.. He was fast!

I was taking pictures of C and his sister A just sat down beside him and I got this! How cute!

I love how bonded these two are.. how cute!

Here's big brother C!

All 3 of them together next to a great big poinsettia tree..

I love this one..

Check out A!

Isn't this cute?

Kinda cool, isn't it?

I am also offering a new HERO package.. which includes a pre-deployment family session, homecoming capture, a 5x7 album of both sessions, and half off a 20x30 image of your choice. The HERO package is complimentary because of this great program.

The Herr Family

Meet Mason, Jaden and Katelyn!

I work with their mom at the hospital and we've been trying to have this shoot for a few weeks now, but something always came up, most of the time it was weather related! Today it was far cooler than the weather forcast said earlier in the week, but the kids and Cara and even their dog Chloe were troopers and we did the shoot at Edmundson Park. The lighting was beautiful and I was thankful to have enough shadowing to do some black and whites!

Here's Mason

Here's Katelyn..

Here's Jaden

HA! a fun one! way to go Katelyn taking a sucker punch :)

Wedding package titles

I'm starting to add weddings to the list of kinds of photography I do, but I need some help from my blog viewers. I've decided to name the packages after 90's-2000's song titles. I need 3 titles, so vote on what you'd choose if you were me..

Have fun, my husband and I had some fun deciding what to include and of course not to include in the list LOL LOL LOL!

Amber and Jason

This is Amber and Jason, I shot this wedding with Erik with Inspired Images, he has a link on the right hand side of the blog in my favorite blogs, so go check him out. I shot some getting ready images of Amber at her request, she was such a beautiful bride, I loved her gown and sash, they were perfect for a fall wedding, although it felt like early January outside. When the bride was getting ready, the bride's mom received a package, inside was a note that said, 3 daughters, 3 weddings, 3 diamonds, and it had a diamond necklace inside. The MOB was really touched and instantly in tears, it was a great moment one of the best surprises I've seen at a wedding this year for sure!
Here are some pictures of their day. Have a great time on your honeymoon Amber and Jason, it was a pleasure working with you.


It was soooooo cold today when I was taking Corey's senior pictures. You wouldn't think 40 degrees with a breeze would be frigid, but it is.. trust me! My camera was acting up a little bit because it was super cold out, so I had to take it back to the car to warm up a few times.

Corey had 4 friends Josh Curry, Nick Mauer, Zach Greenhalgh, and Billy Moore to take some pictures with him and they were fresh from the car wash.. yes, the car wash!! Corey's car was a little bit wet still, to his mom's dismay but Corey didn't have a Shammy to dry it with, so we went with it. Hopefully his doors don't freeze shut tonight! The highlight of the car series is when 2 of Corey's friends decided to do burnouts. I have a highlight picture that was requested of the yellow Mustang.

The maroon car was pretty cool doing a burnout too.

We also did the "mirror shot" with the outside mirror and Corey.

Thanks Corey and all of your friends for being sports with the cold weather.. Also for taking the girly business cards, since that's all I had left to give 'ya.. Good luck with the clutches and tires for your cars too!

Okay, here's one last sneak peek, I'm ordering Corey's proofs tomorrow. I have several favorite images. I can't wait to show them to you guys!

Happy Birthday Grace

November 3rd is my daughter Grace's birthday. She is 6 years old, the same age as her brother for a little over a month since they're 10 months apart in age. He figured this out yesterday and said "she can't be 6 like me, she's boring!"

Remember the little lion in the Halloween pics of my kids posted below? I got to take pictures of her today with her family!!! She's my niece and I may be biased but she's the cutest little lion ever!!!

The leaves at Keomah are absolutely gorgeous and a real bright yellow right now and I'd guess they're at peak color.

I got tons of great shots, here are just a few guys!

Here are some family shots with their dog Keena.

And just one of Keena and Josh. Josh, I think Keena's hair looks great for this shot !

I told 'ya she was cute!
