Hello from…

I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start! After what felt like an epic (13 hour) drive we made it to our cabin in the early Sunday hours. Our day yesterday was spent relaxing, playing games and singing along to my day’s guitar playing. It’s amazing being reunited with all of our loved ones! The plan for today is an Elvis Museum in a nearby town…I’ll keep the photos coming but until then I wish you all a beautiful Monday!

Picture Perfect

I was recently given one of the biggest honors; our close friends Cindy and Lee (mommy and daddy to be) asked if I would take their maternity photos. I’m a total newbie to photography so to say I was flattered would be an understatement. It turned out to be just the push I needed to learn more and get the creative juices flowing. Cindy mentioned she wanted to shoot somewhere with lots of greenery and have it be very casual and relaxed (she’s the coolest most easygoing girl and I love her for it!). We chose a local park and set up by the lake. It was such a great experience and I found myself super comfortable after the first ten snaps. I’m really hoping to coax the rest of my friends to let me shoot their portraits in order to gain more experience. Here is one of my favorites from Cindy’s session…what do you think?

P.s. In case you’re wondering, they are having a baby girl! We can’t wait to meet her 🙂
