True Love

I think it's only fitting with the career path we have chosen and the time of year we are coming upon to post a blog about L.O.V.E.

This is my favorite topic, because I always had a fairly tale kind of mind where I just wanted to be loved. When I was little, it was my daddy, but he handed me off to be loved by a wonderfully loving man.

My mother-in-law bought us a book for Christmas called "Night Light:A couple's devotional" by Dr. James Dobson. We have only just started the book, but it has been so exciting to start this journey. In the first, very powerful, devotional we were asked a question. What is true love? Wow! Talk about thrown off guard. Going back to my fairy tale mind, I wanted to say things like "being whisked off your feet under the moonlit sky", "having your foot pop like they do in the old movies when a girl has her first kiss", or "my prince riding up on his white horse and rescuing me from the big scary dragon." Who does this really happen to? My thoughts began to turn to the big girl in me. Love is sacrificing all things to someone. It doesn't have to be materialistic things, it doesn't even have to be "feet sweeping", it does have be self-less.

I am very fortunate to have found a wonderful man that I can call my husband. He has held me up when I couldn't stand up on my own. He has supported me in my endeavor to start my own business, including sharing the same passion I have for this career. He has become my biggest fan no matter what I do. I am very Blessed to say that God has given him to me.

I love you, my darling!

Bryce has been saying "ma ma ma ma" over and over lately. Today, he just looked at me and said "ma ma". It was such a joyous occasion. I love watching and hearing him grow into this new person he has become. Chris documented a specific part in the day yesterday when I was trying to work and he demanding my attention. Of course he got, who wouldn't give it to this little monster. He would never let me ignore him, he'd push me away from whatever it is if I did.

With his last two teeth coming in (can you believe it?), he has been very clingy and sweet. Chris noticed how sweet Bryce was being with me and just how much all he wanted to do was have mommy hold him. So, out came the camera. This collection of images really tells the story of our relationship.

My Little Drummer Boy

I don't think it's any secret how much I love my kids. They make the little things seems so magnificant and wonderful.

Lately, Bryce has been such a joy to be around. I feel so blessed to be his mommy. With having a 3 month break in our wedding season, I have been able to step back from my desk and BE his mommy. Our favorite game we like to play is soccer. I'll kick the ball and we race to see who gets it first. When I get it, I scoop it up and run into his room. Knowing he's not far behind, I hide so I can throw it at him. Don't worry, it's a plush soccer ball that has brought joy to my sisters kids too.

When he's alone, though, he really proves how smart he is. He's such an investigator. His drum sticks are almost always in his hands and he's always banging on things. His most recent hurtle, was realizing his toys could talk to one another. Before I went to work on Tuesday, I grabbed his buffalo and made it "rar, rar" at him. He thought that was funny. Well, Chris heard him growling. When he found him, Bryce was making his toys talk to one another.

That's my boy!

Bryce, meet Snow

Going with my snow theme today, I decided to get Bryce all bundled up for a quick walk outside in the snow. Lee and Jan, doesn't this just make you want to come back for a visit? :)

After falling facing first, and mommy throwing him into the snow, we had a lot of fun. I didn't like the cold flakes on his face or tongue. Oh well, we had fun anyways. Enjoy!















I love being trapped in on a snow day. As I look out my window in my office, I can't help but notice just how much it's snowing. It's beautiful! Last night, I couldn't take it anymore, I had to grab my camera and take a late night walk. I didn't have to walk to far before I was shown the beauty in God's creation. To think, EVERY snowflake is different is so unbelievable. I especially love the footprints our bunnies make in the snow as the scamper and play.

The NEW Website

We are so excited to announce the launch of our new website...

Check it out...


Teddy & Erin : e-session

Erin and I met in middle school at good old Christian Center. After going to different high schools in 10th grade, we lost touch. We recently found each other on Facebook after my mother had posted a picture of us in our cheerleading gear. Those were the days!

After deciding to give us the privilege of photographing their wedding, we got together to photograph them for their save the date cards. I am so excited to photograph their wedding this summer. Stay tuned this spring, as we will be photographing their engagement session then.
