Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!
I just wanted to post a few pictures from this wedding I've been working was a BLAST! I had forgot how many fun pictures there was from this wedding. I had a great couple, with a great group of friends....awesome colors....any of you bride's out there reading this, check out the "Chocolate" tuxes...the guys looked incredible!! I think these had to be the best tuxes I've ever seen, and different!! That's always nice...but very yummy too!! I guess I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving dinner, because yummy was the only word I could come up with...I plan on using some of their pictures on my spotlight session, but just a fun...classy, AWESOME wedding! I hope they liked all of their pictures as much as I did...I've got to have a sample album of this one!
On a more personal note, say a prayer thanking the Lord for all of your blessings...don't think about what you don't have, or all of the things that can bring you down...debt, loss of a loved one...I know one of my Bride's just lost their Grandma, and a Groom just lost his Grandmother too...but think of all the things we do have. A warm home, plenty of food in the fridge, warm coats, shoes and socks...even your tooth brush, running water, and clean water...those are the things we take for granted here in this wonderful country, I don't think I've ever, one time thought about not being able to eat...might not have been what I wanted, but I've always had plenty....I'm so very thankful for my adorable husband, and beautiful girls, my parents, sisters...brothers (by marriage)...I have great in-laws that love me (who reads this pretty faithfully, which means a lot) I'm so very blessed to have my family all close, I have Sunday dinner with most of them ever Sunday after Church...and how could I forget...Church, and freedom to worship, vote, come and go as we please...wear what I want, no one forces me into anything I don't want to do, we are so blessed...Take time to think about all of those blessing, no matter how big or small they are...I'm thankful for all of you out there reading always makes me feel good when someone tells me they check out my blog...I guess if they're still reading, I'll try to find time to still do it....I like talking to you out there, and I feel like you'll get to know me better, and see that I'm not only a photographer, I'm your friend! I'm thankful for all of my good friends, some I know I don't take enough time for...and should, so if you're reading this, I love you and I'm thankful for you!! Enough said, I've got to get my rolls out of the oven, I'm gonna try not to be late for dinner today...but I'm sure we will be!! Sorry Rhonda! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

My, My, MY!!!

Hello Everyone, I had to post this image tonight...I can't believe just how fast 3 years go by! I'm sure everyone around town is dying for me to do something different with these babies...but I've always just loved this ad with them ....but they sure don't look like this anymore!! My, My, MY!! What fun this was, actually every session is fun with this family...and believe it or not, its getting easier! We were talking about all of our past sessions, the first session, I got to help feed, and change diapers...I wanted another baby so bad after that one, and then they got mobile!! So the next year was alot tougher....and then more mobile...and a little tougher to get everyone to just sit in one spot the next year...and this year, now 3 YEARS OLD! And big brother is a school boy now, its always been a little frustrating for him...he smiles and then they're not, I think he actually had alot more fun this year! So with a 6 year old, and 4 ~3 year old toddlers, I think we did pretty darn good! I always dred this for their parents, I know its so hard, and I had to cancel on them last minute a couple of weeks ago because my 7 year old sliced a chunck of her toe off and we had to run for stiches, but to be honest, I think we had a much better day because of it! Well, got to run...gotta get girls to bed, its late start tomorrow at school so everyone is still up, talk to you soon~ Penny

Happy Halloween!
