Another big blog post!

Still trying to catch up a little.....so, I have included a few more sessions.  So many pics to choose from each of the sessions.  I love so many of them and it is always difficult to decide.  It has been a few weeks since these sessions and going through them again tonight brings back so many fun memories for me.  I have truly been blessed with some awesome families to work with.  Thank you all for allowing me to take your photos.  I cannot begin to express the joy it has given me....

As always, I love to hear what you think.  So, if you would like to leave a comment - just "click" on comments and another window will pop up!

Family Sessions!

I am so far behind in blogging......this entire fall has been just an incredible "ride".  I have been blessed with so many wonderful clients and have had the time of my life taking their photos.  The last few weeks I spent most of the time either taking photos or ordering photos and Christmas cards for so many clients.  So, my goal this week is to get caught up.....well, at least a little closer to caught up with all my blogging.  Here are a few of my favorites from three of my sessions.  Each night this week I will be posting pics from any of my sessions that I have not yet posted from this year.  (Unless, of course, the client has asked me not to put their pics on my blog)  After the week is over I will be having a contest......YAY!!!  You will be asked to "vote" on your favorite pic out of all the posts from 2010.  The winning photo will receive a prize and so will one of the voting contestants.  I will be posting all the "official" rules on Jan 1, so keep watching!

Thanks for following my blog......so many fun things to come in the coming weeks.  I have a feeling 2011 is going to be an incredible year!

My beautiful family.....

Since it is Christmas, family is on everyone's mind even more than usual.  So, I thought I would post some of the pics I have taken recently of my family.  The first two are of my beautiful daughter and granddaughter, the second is our wonderful daughter and her boyfriend and the last one is of my mom and dad.  I am so blessed to have all of them in my life as well as my extended family - inlaws and friends that have become part of our family.  To each of you....thank you for all you do and all our love this Christmas season and all through the year!

I had to share.....

I just had to share a couple of photos from our Christmas so far......The first one is Lorin and Aubree after her Christmas program.   They were ahead of us walking to the vehicle and I love that they are holding hands.  She certainly has her papa wrapped around her little finger.  The second one is from the Winter Wonderland in Marshfield.  Every year we go one evening and enjoy all the lights and displays.  Such a beautiful thing to see.  Aubree and Heather were walking through one of the "tunnels" of lights and I snapped a pic.  Such wonderful Christmas memories.......

Merry Christmas Everyone!  I have an engagement shoot later this morning so......if I get just a couple of minutes tonight, I will try to post just a couple.  So many other shoots to post but, next week should be a little slower.

Also, watch for an upcoming contest right after the first of the year!

Winter Wonderland Wedding!

Saturday I had such a wonderful time taking photos of a beautiful wedding.  As always, I have lots and lots of pics to edit but, I wanted to share just a few.  Heidi and Eric are such a sweet, loving couple.  It was such an honor to be part of their wedding.

Heidi wanted a winter wonderland wedding and I think she has connections with Mother Nature.....but, she didn't know her own powers.  She ordered the snow and I think she forgot to specify how much she wanted.  No matter.....it was a beautiful day and they braved the cold for lots of wonderful pics.

Thank you Heidi and Eric for allowing me to be a part of your day.  It truly was a pleasure.  All the happiness in the world to both of you.

Baby is almost here......

Such a wonderful couple....beautiful mommy-to-be and daddy-to-be came and had a few pics taken before they have their new little bundle arrive.  She is to be making her appearance any day now and I GET TO TAKE HER PICS!  (Can you tell I am a little excited?)  I love taking newborn pics and a Christmas baby - ohhhhhh, the excitement of it all is almost too much.

Mommy and daddy were so much fun to photograph and they are anxious to meet their sweet little girl (I think almost as excited as me.....haha).  I have some fun ideas for pics of their little girl but, we will have to wait a few more days yet.  She is scheduled to make her appearance soon....but, babies have a way of not always following schedules so, we will just have to be patient. 

These are just a few of my favs from the "mini" session.  Such a loving couple, so much fun.  Although they were so happy and we were having so much fun it was difficult to get "serious" faces on the pics.  I love how you can see their joy and love in the pics.......
