Reclaiming Christmas

This year, our church did something a little different. Instead of having our usual children's Christmas program, we created "Bethlehem" in our Life Center. This was intended for children to walk through the streets of Bethlehem and experience the real reason for Christmas. What we didn't know was just how many adults also joined us for this! 

My job in all this was to create the "Wow" factor. I had so much fun building, painting, and decorating our gym into a place that made people stop and say, wow! It then took many other people to donate items, food, and time to pull this off! It was truly a blessed evening!

Sign our census and enter our City Gate, but not before you meet Caesar!




First you will need a basket with a map of each shop and activity.

But most importantly, Baby Jesus!!! ( yep, a real baby)




weekend shoots

Lately, my sessions have just been on weekends. With the time changing back, I loose a lot of natural light very quickly in the evenings now.


This guy is the strong silent type. I had the same thing with my own son!



This little man has been coming to see me about every three months. Every time I see him, he grows up just a little more.



The temperature actually got close to 50 this weekend, so we took advantage of it!



Netherton Family

I had never met this wonderful family before and I always enjoy home family sessions! They are in the process of remolding their home, but we found enough places inside to do this session.







 

Slowing a bit

Whew! Slowing down a bit and catching up! Praise the Lord! I am so thankful for my clients! I love people and capturing their shinning faces!




I've been busy  taking swimming banner pics and designing for our Senior banners.  Next year, *gasp*, my twins will be here too! Doesn't seem real!



Trying out my new barn siding that someone from church let me have.


Of course I was out taking pics of the first snow of the year....



My weekly recap

This actually might be a bit longer than a week, but who's counting....

It was a cool 47 degrees the night we shot this session. Luckily we got out of the wind enough!


I always enjoy capturing these two guys! They are so funny and keep me in stitches the entire session!


 These are a few from Derek's Mini Senior Session. We had one of  our last warm nights for this session, thank goodness!




 I always love photographing this lovely lady for her school pictures. I've watched her grown up over the years and she is so beautiful!



 This cry really came out of no where ( possibly due to no pacie in the mouth) .




 It's a good thing that I don't take looks like this personally!



 I think I'm gonna like the new color in my studio!
