Starred by Me - Take 2

Warning: There is a very small amount of adult.nudity included in this post.  It's not much and it's not rude... just wanted to make you aware.

This one will be all about photographers and the photo shoots that I've starred over time.  These will include just about everything.  Couples, engagements, weddings, maternity, newborns, family shoots and whatever else...

To start....

1. Jessica Claire's Matnerity shoot with Kamee.  {First, I love that name!  It was my favorite childhood babysitter's name!}  Her shoot was just so sweet and I loved the teal/turquoise background... just beautiful!  BUMMER, this link didn't work to link the shoot so I'll just post a picture {s} of what I thought was most beautiful...

2. Another favorite is Jessica Clair's {again, because she's awesome} shoot with {some.nudity.shown} Katie & John for the maternity photos... How can you not just love these pictures?  I know that this time isn't always glorious for everyone but these pictures, to me, are just stunning.  I hope when it's my time that I'm this confident with my body to get these types of pictures taken.

3. Look at this beautiful baby that Gina Lee captured.  If you haven't seen her work either, you must go and check her out!  Just so bright and full of life....

4. I don't know what it is about engagement photos or just photos of couples together but I'm always envious of what they are able to accomplish and I love the bond between the two people that really shines through in just a photograph.  So here we have Jennifer Lehner's pictures that she took of Nicole & Brett.  Not only are they in the fall and just SO colorful because of the changing of leaves but they laid in them too!  I love that shot!!!

5. These I'm going to be sort of selfish about but if you look close enough, you will see both Toby & I in these pictures.  I wasn't originally planning on getting in on them but it was fun.  I had to sort of chase Toby around and tell him where to be and where to stay.  He was so excited about the treats that he was getting that he wasn't always focused on getting his picture taken.  But there were a handful of FABULOUS photographers there that captured the event... So here you go, 1st, Megan Morgan {who hosted the event}, Holly McCaig, and Harrington Photography.  Are they just great!?!  My little model!!!

6. The last time that my family has had their pictures taken professionally together was when I was in high school.  It's a great photo as we are in the fall leaves that I just LOVE.  I'd love to do it again with everyone as adults and with our own families...  Check out these photos that Moments in Time captured! I'd love to try and recreate these with my family.

7. Then just some fun with silhouettes by Christy Johnson... I've always thought silhouettes were fun, I just have never done anything with them for myself.  Maybe someday!

There are many more photographers that I would love to showcase but I'm going to save that for another post...

Until then...

So I have been 'stalking' your blog for quite some time. I too had infertility issues and have been through a lot of what you have been through, though now I have been blessed with 2 miracles. The latest addition just 3 wks ago. I saw that you gave a shout to Christy Johnson and wanted to 2nd that! She is my photographer and I love the work she does. Her latest blog entry are the feet of my newborn, with more to come soon :0) I also wanted to show you another site you may like she does a fantastic job with babies and kids and I love her work.

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
