She’s 18!

Maggie celebrated her 18th birthday with her parents, family and close friends. It was a beautiful and fun night! Maggie looked absolutely stunning and she was smiling all night. Everyone had a wonderful time celebrating this sweet young lady.

Family Love

If you follow my blog, you may recognize this beautiful family. I was blessed to be able to document the birth of Thatcher and to take family portraits after he was born. This sweet family relocated and wanted to have family pictures taken before they left. It’s always such a joy to photograph this family! They are all so very precious. Look how big Thatcher has gotten! I can’t believe he’s one already!

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness”
Galatians 5:22

Time Flies…..

This beautiful young lady is one of my daughters best friends and I was absolutely thrilled to be able to take her senior portraits! She is a triplet (the only set of triplets I know). We did all three sessions on the same day at their home, which, has so many memories not only for their family but for ours too. Jenny is stunning and her sweet personality really came out in these pictures.

Psalm 37:3-4

On My Honor I Will Do My Best…

I have enjoyed watching Matthew grow into a wonderful young man. He has a GREAT sense of humor and is always making people smile and laugh. He is very smart and very accomplished. We attended his Eagle Scout ceremoney and I was very encouraged by his dedication, focus and excitment in his service to the Boy Scouts. This young man is very impressive and I am looking forward to seeing how his life unfolds.

On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.

The Future is here

This young beauty is such a joy to be around. She’s full of energy and always there to lend a helping had. Like her siblings Jessica is thoughtful, sweet and always smiling! She’s very outgoing and a go-getter. I really enjoy our conversations and miss her dearly! She truly is a gem!

“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
Psalm 119:105

Time for pictures

We did a quick mini-session in Ladera Ranch and I got a few shots of this beautiful young lady. It was just the two of us and even though there was an age gap (just a little one haha) we had a great time talking about family, friends, church and collage. I had a great time and although it was only a 30 minute session we got a lot of different poses in, she was great in front of the camera and needless to say the camera loved her!

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” Romans 15:13

Chidren grow up way too fast

When I first met Hannah she was just 12 years old and now she is in college (yup another very late post). Hannah is a sweet young lady who loves the Lord and her family wholeheartedly. She is always serving others and especially loves to serve by watching the little ones in the nursery. You can always find Hannah carrying a baby. Several years ago, when my son had a sleepover, Hannah called her brother who was in the car with us at the time just to tell him that she loved him and to have a good time. That was so very precious and I will never forget it! She has such a beautiful heart and I am excited to see how God will use her for His glory! Congratulations Hannah!
