Our 19 year old son and his girlfriend:
Moments like these are my favorite kind.
My 8th grade class reunion took place over the summer, giving me the chance to reconnect with a dear childhood friend. Kelly contacted me a short time later to schedule a family photo session over the holidays and I was delighted at the thought of meeting her husband and son.
Not to mention seeing the rest of her family.
Her brother was in town for Christmas and Kelly wanted to capture time with him.
It was so much fun spending time with them. Kelly’s son has a laugh that reminds me SO MUCH of his momma at that age. Her husband was hilarious.
And Kelly’s mom happened to have a birthday the very day of the session. Here’s a peek at the rest of our time together:
Thanks again for the memorable day, Kelly!
I began offering the Everyday Photographer Workshop a few years ago to help beginner and amateur photographers understand how to better use their cameras. Not only do attendees receive personalized instruction for shooting in manual mode, they learn how to create powerful images and meaningful artwork for their home and loved ones. The workshop covers all of the basics – lighting, aperture, composition, depth of field, ISO, lenses and other equipment, post-processing, and the concept of storytelling photography.
It also includes breakfast treats, lunch, and some sort of dessert-in-jar in addition to a workbook and goodies to take home.
If you are interested in attending one of the 2017 workshops, a deposit of $100 will hold a spot with the remaining balance of due a week before the workshop. You will find dates and other details HERE. If you have any questions, let me know!
My word for 2016 was SAVOR and I did exactly that with moments, food, memories & more. With our firstborn graduating from high school and heading off to college, it was a year of transition.
This next year will be the last in my forties which means more change is imminent. I have spent the last decade as mom-of-young-children and as I mentioned in THIS blog post, a new season is approaching. It is time to cast the net, to REIMAGINE dreams and goals for the next season.
My word for 2017.
The best gift this holiday season is definitely having our oldest home for 3+ weeks. And we have been Christmas-ing it up since his arrival. Here’s a peek at the last eight days:
There was a holiday sleepover with the munchkins. Christmas Eve service at Hosanna. Our annual BINGO tradition at my folks’ house. A lazy Christmas morning before spending a fun afternoon of games, gifts, and treats with my husband’s family. Not to mention, loads of socializing with friends.
Hope you had a warm and toasty holiday as well. Merry After Christmas!
