j&k | goshen couples photographer

several weeks ago it was a special treat for me to photograph this young married couple.

i still remember the first time i met k.
she was about 9 mths old when troy & i started hanging out with her parents.
they were a young married couple & new parents, while we were just dating/engaged.

{kind of makes a girl feel her age when someone she met as a baby gets married}

boy, how time flies!

and because i'm in the mood, i'm gonna do a little play by play...

i tell people that they don't have to smile to be pretty... this is proof right here...

♥ this...

i'm liking a little sun...

i said "talk to him k!" and she said (laughing) "i can't talk to him!"...

i love to get in there tight...

because i always love the results!

this was so much fun... hope you guys enjoy your photos!

too fast | nappanee children's photographer

my guys are growing up so quickly.
school has started & i have an 8th grader & 5th grader.

i ask myself, "where has the time gone? they're growing up too fast!"

all you mama's with little ones out there, let me reassure you:
it will be gone... all too fast.

so i savor these moments today.

secretly, my oldest son blows my mind.

he chews gum. all. the. time.
he's into ac/dc. his father is so proud☺
he's officially taller than me - over 5' 11".
his new bike is the big deal in his life right now.
he plays "gaga ball". it's an actual physical game, not a video game. bonus.
he bought a $15 computer from his cousin. you'd think it was state of the art.
he is a quite the piano player, which makes me really proud!
he's a super speller & loves all things science.

my youngest keeps me sharp. he makes me work for every last bit.

he's imaginative & creative.
he likes all things egyptian.
he is the most thoughtful kid i know.
he loves history, which makes his father proud.
he's a self-professed author. he's always writing & that impresses me!
he loves to play gaga ball, even though his brother normally pounds him.
he wants a pet desperately. even if it's just a mouse, he needs one.
he got 5 milk duds for helping me work on my backlit shots. i love the results.

i love these boys so much.

god knows what he's doing when he grants you the desires of your heart; that he surely does. ♥

on their way out | nappanee photographer

this year was crazy hard on the gardens.
i suppose it didn't help that i didn't water the flowers once this year.

bad gardener... baaaad.

i like to think that by planting all perennials, the garden's on auto-pilot.

you throw a kid who's in trouble out there once in awhile to pull the weeds, and let those babies go.

that's my idea of flower gardening.... lazy style

they're on their way out now but these were some of my favorites...

love me a little flower bokeh!

so long, my pretties
