Life-Giving Water

"For the Lamb on the throne will be their Shepherd. He will lead them to springs of life-giving water. And God will wipe every tear from their eyes."
- Revelation 7:17

I love this scripture.

We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

Baby Belly Love

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of taking maternity photos for some dear friends. We had such a fun day with them and although I may be a little biased, I loved how the photos turned out! It was so hard to choose a favorite!

Hadison joined their family six weeks early on the day after Valentine's day! Both Mom and Baby are doing great and I can only imagine how lucky Dad must feel to have two special Valentines this year!
M & F: We couldn't be more happy for you guys!
Can't wait to meet sweet, little Hadie! :)

Fun with Film!

I can honestly say that this past weekend was a birthday for the record books. We had a nice weekend away from the big-city hustle and bustle. As I mentioned in my previous post, it was a weekend focused on the simple things and I loved every second of it! Work-life has been extremely busy lately, so it was a much needed escape. In the craziness of every-day life, it is important to take time away from all the to-do lists, emails, iPhone dings, you name it! And yes, this even includes a break from my dear Canon 7D. Of course, D knew I couldn't make it a whole weekend without taking any pictures so one of my birthday presents included an "old-school" Kodak disposable camera. I loved it! I can't even tell you how giddy I was to get back and have the photos developed. :)

Here are a few snapshots from the weekend...


We started off with a little water adventure. It was windy and cold, but we were lucky enough to catch a few fish, thanks to my personal fishing guide!


Next on the agenda was Mardi Gras!

We headed to the island to partake in some of the festivities. It was a blast just walking around without any plans. Here we are checking out all the parade floats...

After the parade (and beads!) we headed to a wonderful dinner overlooking the water! My stomach and heart was full!


Thank you D for such a fun birthday weekend!

I wish I could press the rewind button and go back!

Until next time! :)
