It's the Little Things...

  • Bokeh and the Balloon

though he’s full grown and over a year and a half years old, Bokeh boy is still experiencing new things!! Friday night we had a birthday dinner for my sister and I blew up a few balloons to decorate with. I didn’t realize that one fell on the floor and before I knew it, Bokeh was having a ball!! He chased that thing for a good 30 minutes and because his little mouth isn’t wide enough to grab a hold of it, he didn’t pop it for a long time! It wasn’t until he got brave and started POUNCING on it that it finally popped! It’s amazing how one little thing can be so engaging to him! And when he gets excited about these

And little post for my favorite sister!

  • Happy Birthday Emy!!!

was a very important person’s birthday!! My little sister turned 23 yesterday and I still can’t believe she’s THAT old! It’s not really OLD…. but it feels old when you still remember someone as being a bleach blonde toddler who had the squeakiest voice known to man and a sweet little smile! Emily was a cutie when she was little and now she’s a beautiful 23 year old that’s doing incredible things with her life!! Emy graduated from Virginia Tech a year ago. I still feel like she should be in college!! Time is flying by! She graduated and really felt called to do ministry full time with CRU, a non-profit ministry that reaches college students.

  • Spring 2013 Workshop

was a time when I saw other photographer’s hosting gorgeous workshops with really awesome shoots and yet they would never blog the images!! I used to think “Gosh?! Those sneak peeks are awesome! Why aren’t you sharing those images?!”. Well, one reason could be that those workshop images were going to be featured somewhere big and they weren’t allowed to share! I totally get this now. However, I ALSO understand how, even after a feature, one could forget to blog a workshop. Why do I understand this? BECAUSE I DID IT!
