Summer Fun!

Here's a picture of my secret hiding place for the next 5 days :) I'll be spending a lot of time getting some sun and enjoying a break from work and school!

Hope you're enjoying your summer! I know I am! :)

How will you be remembered?

This morning I was sad to hear about the murder of Iowa football coach, Ed Thomas. I'm still in shock of how it happened and my heart goes out to all the family and friends. ESPN posted an article with more details here.

NFL player Aaron Kampman of the Green Bay Packers said this today about his High School Coach: "His legacy for many will be associated with his tremendous success as a football coach. However, I believe his greatest legacy comes not in how many football games he won or lost but in the fact that he was a committed follower of Jesus Christ. He lived his life trying to exemplify this faith and convey those values to those under his influence."

Wow. Could there be any better way to be remembered? I don't think so.

How will you be remembered? and What will your legacy be?

Ashleigh and Alex - Maternity

I'm always telling people "it's all about who you know" and this photo shoot proves my point! Chris from LaBrisa Photography works with Ashleigh and knew she was wanting to take some maternity photos. However, Chris also knew that I was looking for a graphic design artist to make me a logo. So Ashleigh and I decided to make a trade for our talents! I take her maternity pictures and she makes my logo. It's a win win situation and...... it's all about who ya know! :) Thanks Chris for the behind the scenes work! I'll of course post my logo when it's done, but until then here are some pics from Ashleigh and Alex's maternity session.

Christina and James - Wedding

My first official solo wedding is finally finished! :) Now onto the good stuff!!!
Christina and James definitely knew how to rock out a small town Kansas wedding! I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Christina looked absolutely gorgeous on her big day. She was patiently waiting for the wedding to get started.

The bride and bridesmaids sharing a prayer before the ceremony.

Their flower girl was adorable! I love her reaction to the bubbles :)

James, Christina, and their son Braden. What a sweet family!

I love when a bride and groom set time aside to take pictures that reflects their personality. Christina and James chose to go out to their farm and take some fun pictures with their awesome wedding party!

Definitely my favorite shot of the day! They nailed the romantic dip and the weather was perfect!
At first you may think this is beer on ice, but it's actually a cake! The bottom of it is all cake, and the bottles and ice are hard candy. How cool is that!?!

Their first dance and the start to a fun night.

A bridesmaid and groomsman tearin' up the dance floor!

Congratulations Christina and James! Thank you so much for being great clients! Your family, friends, and of course, awesome wedding party, were great to work with as well! :)
