While out on a family photo shoot, I received a text..."I think I hear a kitten"...my response was "RUN, RUNAWAY FAST...and ignore it." That didn't happen. And what we found was a kitten less than a week old. So young we had to bottle feed it. We searched for the momma, but the kitten was found walking along the fenceline, not in the barn or somewhere safe that momma would come back to. So, now, we have another mouth to feed. The jury is still out on whether it will be a "simba" or a "nala", but I am rather impressed we were able to keep it alive. ;)
I'm NOT a wedding photographer. I'm not. I keep saying that and God keeps throwing "simple" ones at me saying "you don't know until you try." Well, 3 wedding's later, I coulda, shoulda, might be a wedding photographer. It's not something I want to specialize in, (because let's face it, it's A LOT of work) and I have so many irons in the fire. But after 3 weddings, I might be a wedding photographer.
Tonya's been my friend for a long time...well, 4 years or so. Our kids are best friends and hopefully next year going to collage together. So when she threw together a "quick" wedding, I volunteered to photograph it...'cause that's what friends do. ;)
She's waited such a long time to "fall" and John's a great guy that treasures her...and she deserves it.
Perfect. Getting married in cargo shorts, flip flops and a cool white shirt. My kind of wedding!
Not to mention on the lake...about as laid back as you can get and yet, still classy.
If we ever decide to renew our vows...this is how I want to do it!
So much love!
So much happiness!
As cute as they can be!
Congrats John and Tonya...may you have many happy years!
If summer flew by, fall has been nonexistent. Not really, but it's been a whirlwind of activity. From band and competitions to senior pictures, a wedding and a collage tour, I'm not sure if I'm coming or going. Oh yeah, and a quick roadtrip with my dad. Time is just slipping by for my senior this year and as much as I love the young man he's turned into, I miss my little boy. Please don't blink...it slips away in a heartbeat.
So as another day/month closes, 3 beautiful sunsets from the last 3 months.
September, around the corner from the house and letting a teenager drive me, so that I could hop out quick to capture it as it was fading quickly.
October, on my way home from a long weekend at Emmaus, God gave me a special gift. Again, pulling over quickly as the light fades. (I'm good at this!) :)
And finally November, just last week, in my backyard. I think I left dinner on the stove to run out to the back field to grab this gem.
You know you've had a busy summer when you look up and haven't blogged in 2 months! So much going on that I didn't have time to sit still for a minute! Between photo sessions, weddings, travel and day to day life, it's just been a blur! One thing I did shoot this summer was this beautiful family!
Mrs Linda is part of my church family and I just love her. She had knee surgery this summer and a good portion of the family came to visit her, so they took the opportunity to get some portraits done.
Memories to last a lifetime!
Grandkids and even a great-granchild! So glad they were able to spend some time together and make some memories!
