YAY last weekend I got my website up and running. There are a few changes, but I hope that you find them all to be good changes. I will continue to post at least once a day.

Please leave any comments and suggestions and enjoy.

Thanks for stopping by!!


We had two couples come into our class today for engagement photos. It was interesting to have so many photographers shooting the couples at the same time, but it was fun. Here are a few photos from the shoot.

*I dreamed of a wedding of elaborate elegance,
A church filled with family and friends.
I asked him what kind of a wedding he wished for,
He said one that would make me his wife.

Have you ever tasted the rainbow? These are berry blast skittles, YUM!

A smile can brighten the darkest day. ~Author Unknown

It takes a lot of work from the face to let out a smile, but just think what good smiling can bring to the most important muscle of the body… the heart. ~Author Unknown

A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it. Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away. Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give. ~Author Unknown

* Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.

This is the face of a statue my sister gave me. I think it is supposed to represent a female Buddha. Either way I think it is very cool. Here are few Buddhist sayings that I found:

*Fill your mind with compassion

*What we think, we become

*Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful

*Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one getting burned.

I love sparklers, they are so fun! These days everyone is so busy and on the go and sometimes you forget to appreciate the little things in life. Make sure you take time to remember the good things, forgive and let go of the not so good things, live in the present and…….. have fun!!

Curtis and Crista got married in Mexico December 2008. They are a beautiful couple who accepted my offer to be models for my wedding photography class. It was a lot of fun, and I bet they felt like movie stars having 15 different photographers asking them to pose and act natural and smile and kiss for 3 hours. They were great sports and a great couple to photograph. Here are a few shots I took.

*What lies behind us, and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
