Happy Birthday, Zachary!

I had a fun time celebrating this little guy's first birthday with him this week ... both at his party and in the studio.  Although unsure quite what to do with his adorable polka-dotted cake, I think we captured some fun images.  He certainly had a fun time smiling for the camera!

Happy 1st Birthday, Zachary!

Emily & Patrick {a love story}

At the beginning of 2013, I promised a free Christmas session this year.  However, after really searching my heart ... I decided to give that little "gift" to a wonderful family this summer instead.

Emily & Patrick have been dear friends of mine for a long time.  Seriously long!  Emily is probably my oldest, closest, and most cherished friend.  She knows most everything about me ... and I about her.  This March, her husband (who I have also known for 12+ years) was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer.  I have been writing another blog, God Healing Patrick, to chronicle Patrick's journey with (and God's victory over) cancer.  This special couple had not had professional photographs made since their wedding day, over 5 years ago.  So, I took the liberty of "donating" this promised session to them.

It was so magical just to watch them unwind together and enjoy each other's company ... then to come home and see what my camera captured!

Enjoy a sneak peek of their session:
