**** warning**** Lots of pictures to follow...

For those of you that might follow me on my Google Reader or know me in real life, you might know that I have a real appreciation or LOVE for photography.

I like to think that I'm a good photographer too, however, I don't have a fancy camera, just simply a point and shoot, Kodak Share digital.  It does the job and captures the moments or memories that I desire, however, it's just not the quality that it could be.

While trying to give my blog a little face lift, I have come across two people who have been in my life for a little while now, but now they are fitting into new roles.

First, Trish.  As you'll read in her most recent post, she's taking a class that's going to help her design not only for her company but for you too!  She's been an acquaintance for about 7 years now.  In the last 3 years we've grown a nice little business relationship through all of her beautiful creations, then a friendship and now some other business related relationships again...

She's working on a banner for my blog and I can't wait for the finished product!  It's going to be awesome! 

Here are some of the trial runs...

After working with the pictures that I had on file and some of the ideas that I've found through other blogs that I follow, we decided that it would probably be best to have a photographer take a few head shots for {not only my header} but for my blog in general.

So, this bring me to Britt.

And all of her talent.


Individual babies....

And then the pregnant mamas...

As you can tell, she's got quite an eye for precious moments and strives to make the best use of bright cheerful colors that she can.  Her clients all walk away with a smile on their faces because she's able to capture the innocents of their lives without having to do much preparation at all.  She's a natural!

Her price is reasonable, the pictures are bright and she's a gem to work with!  Communication through email has been fabulous so far and you can really tell that she loves what she does!

Check out her blog and hopefully following my shoot on May 23rd, I'll be able to show you some of her beautiful photos of me!!  As her motto says, she strives to be Modern.Fresh.Fun. photos and I want all of those things in my blog header + photos alone.

Heck, if you are local and need to venture out of the store bought photo packages, GO TO BRITT!  She'll knock your socks off!



Amazing photos! How fun. And, I can't wait to see your new banner.

wow, some excellent photos for sure. As always, the photographers never live in my area. Otherwise, I'd sure go to the last one!! I love those prego photos.
Britt said…

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 …
