Practice Makes Perfect

Since Emily and I have our first official photo shoot tomorrow, we decided to take the kiddos on a scavenger hunt today to scout out the perfect location for our bride and groom to be. We are shooting Emily's sister's engagement photos, and I really couldn't be more excited. I am actually fitting it in between a wedding ceremony and the reception, lol. I just couldn't miss it!!!

Here are some practice shots I took to get ready for the big day;)

It's Over

Tax season, that is=) Things will finally settle down a bit over here, and I will finally get my sanity back, lol. Oh yeah, so will Ben;) I am not sure which is worse...working in an office 14 hours a day 6 days a week or being stuck (and I use the word "stuck" in the most loving way) in a house with a one year old 14 hours a day 6 days a week;)

In all seriousness, I know I am fortunate to be able to stay home with Aiden and I wouldn't trade it for anything!!!

With the arrival of spring, a glorious Easter, a recent family scare, and a lot of cool new changes (one HUGE one that I can't quite share with you yet, ok, I'll give you a clue...I am NOT pregnant, lol) I've been realizing more and more lately how truly blessed we are. I was inspired to create this page:

Happy 25th Birthday!!!

This is Angela's husband, Ben, posting as a guest Blogger. I just wanted to use Ang's Blog as a platform to wish her a big Happy Birthday, and to let her know how much of a blessing she has been to my life. We were talking on Wednesday night and Ang said, "I can't believe I am half way to 50!" She was saying it was depressing, but I was elated inside thinking that I would probably have another 50+ years to spend with her. When I first met Angela, there was something that drew me to her, and I cannot pinpoint the one exact character quality that did, because I believe it was a multitude of character strengths that drew me in, and of course her physical beauty:) This is why it has been no surprise to me how great of a wife, mother, daughter, granddaughter, sister, and friend Angela is. I just want to encourage Angela to fully pursue her dreams and her individual creativity in this coming year of life. I fully believe that the Lord has provided Angela with the creative outlet and freedom inspire that she has been seeking for several years, and pray that she will feel the Lord's pleasure everytime she uses her gifts to create.

Seriously...I LOVE This Camera!

Can I just tell you how much I LOVE my new camera?! Since I have started digital scrapbooking I have realized the importance of a good picture. I have always loved photography, in fact, I have even taken a class here and there. My problem, however, was the classes I took were for film cameras, and you can't really fully pursue a photography hobby if you have no where to process your film. That is why I love modern technology sometimes. Thanks to the digital camera and Photoshop, I am able to dabble in yet another fun, beautiful, and rewarding hobby.

Here are some of my favorite most recent pictures I took:

Midnight Black Filter

Midnight Sepia Filter

Converted to Black and White, Colorized, Slightly cropped

Converted to Black and White, Midnight Black Filter, Slightly cropped

No processing, see why I love my camera, lol

TLR High Contrast B&W Conversion, Cropped

No processing, I thought the colors were SO rich in this photo

Midnight Black Filter

I still have so much to learn about post processing and photography itself. But the best part about this hobby (although it is turning into so much more) is the gorgeous memories I get to preserve. To me, that is priceless.

With that said, if anyone would like a photo shoot for REALLY cheap; be it, babies, maternity, engagement, Em and I would love the practice. And feel free to pass the word along.
