Once again

something else has taken over Wedding Wednesday!  I was going to post something for WW but I just couldn’t wait to announce the “Sugar Shoot Workshop”!!!!! This is an amazing opportunity for photographers that is coming up in MARCH!! I’m so excited I could dance right here in my office! (it doesn’t help that I’ve been nibbling on the candy and have a TON of sugar in my system!

They have the

type of personalities that just make you want to laugh… constantly. I met Anne Taylor when I was a sophomore in college.  She was one of the “new freshmen” that basically lived at our house first semester and we fell in love with her. Then before we knew it, we were introduced to Elizabeth! Elizabeth decided to come to CNU as well and I loved watching these two interact. The remind me so much of Emy and I. We’re so different and yet just enough alike to get on each others nerve…just a tad:).  I love these two and so when Anne Taylor emailed me about some family pictures I was like “umm, duh!”… of course I want to hangout with the

The Parr Family

It can be

a big adjustment moving to a new town, into a new house, a new church and basically a new life! However, Michael and I have been blessed with incredible families that have welcomed us in and we have quickly come to LOVE where we are! We love the church, we love the teenagers and we love their families. The Parr family is one of those families! Michael quickly became attached to Brendan and I got to hangout with Carlyn when she was home from JMU this winter break… we love them! So when they asked about getting some Christmas card pictures done, I was so excited because EVERYONE talks about the
