I have lots to share, just no time to share it!  But here are a few of my niece.  I’m working on her senior pics now.  Lots more to come. 

She is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside!  Love this girl!!

The baby is due the beginning of January.  If you are that person please email me again!  I have searched and searched and cannot find the email in my gmail.  Thank you! 


What is a post without a pic?  This is my daughter.  She wrote this on our driveway.  What a sweetie!

This is another wedding we did this summer.  I thoroughly enjoyed spending the day with Joe and Tasha and their families!  Watching them interact in such a wonderful, loving way and capturing that with my camera makes me so happy!  I might have to do another blog post about this next week because I have barely skimmed the surface of their pictures.  

God’s blessings to you two as you begin your new life together.  Thanks for letting us be a part of your big day.

And a big shout out to my sweet hubby for helping me.  I couldn’t do it without you, Bob!

For this first one we had to carefully duck and maneuver our way into the trees.  I asked them if they trusted me and they said yes.  So I said GREAT!  Let’s keep going!  🙂  No wedding dresses were torn, ripped, stained or otherwise damaged in this session.

The handsome groom . . .   I didn’t know Joe before the wedding, but I heard testimony after testimony about his kind and loving spirit, his love for the Lord and his determination to marry his beautiful bride.  Tasha is in good hands.  This guy is the real deal.

And here is the beautiful bride . . . I’ve known Tasha her entire life, but haven’t had much opportunity to really get to know her.  I’d say I’ve missed out.  This young woman is mature beyond her years with a love for the Lord that is remarkable.  I know why Joe was so determined to marry her. 

I love this shot Bob got of Joe as Tasha was walking down the aisle. 

And who can resist this adorable couple!  We had a photo booth set up at the reception.  Fun times!

Wow!  We had a fabulous vacation in the Outer Banks of North Carolina!  Hurricane/Tropical Storm Hanna chased us out of there one day early, but every other day was absolutely beautiful!  It is so fun to spend time with family having fun and hangin’ at the beach.  I have loads of pics. 

Traveling with my husband is always an adventure.  I mentioned earlier that we drive a 1993 Toyota Previa mini van (we are basically waiting for it to die before we get something else).  Anyway, my hubby thinks this is like a new car or something.  He wanted to take our bikes along so he had a hitch put on the van (the van has about 185,000 miles on it . . . but whatever).  So we go all the way to OBX with no problems, ride our bikes, la la la.  As we’re driving home we noticed people were staying plenty far away from us . . . ummm, yeah, big wake up call.  We checked the bike rack and realized we were literally losing our entire bumper!!  And I’m not talking about the “pretty part” of the bumper . . . I’m talking the totally rusted underneath, hold the pretty bumper onto the van, bumper.  Apparently we lost a couple bolts on the hitch.  Yikes!!!  Okay, so that is totally unsafe.  Praise God we didn’t hurt anyone around us.  So we spent the night in West Virginia and by God’s grace we found this little mom and pop auto shop called Lo Do in Cabin Creek, West Virginia.  The owner welded the hitch onto the bottom of the van and we were back on the road.   THANK YOU LO DO!!!!! 

Someone please tell my husband that we drive an OLD van, not a new SUV!!!!

Oh yes, I need a Mac because windows Vista on my computer has now crashed TWO times since the beginning of 2008.  That is such a pain.  No pictures were lost, but it takes a lot of time to wipe off the computer and reload everything.  I’m still not done.  Thanks to my hubby for getting the computer going again.   Next time I’m buying a Mac!!

Okay, okay . . . this is my wordiest post ever.  On to the pics!   

We climbed a HUGE sand dune at Jockey Ridge State Park.  These next few were taken there.

Same pic as above, just processed differently.  I love the blue sky, but I also love the tones in this one.

This is my husband and son playing football on a “real” football field by the light of the moon.

I’m still catching up from vacation!  If you’re waiting on an email or photo order I will contact you soon.
