I had the distinct pleasure of being a 2nd shooter for the fabulous Andrea Devisser (http://www.andreadevisser.com/) on Friday for Ron & Tricia Goudswaard’s wedding!!  I haven’t started editing yet, but just wanted to share one image with you guys.  I believe it is my most powerful image to date, and I want to THANK YOU for wrangling it out of me!!  Also, my dear SIL, you are wonderful, and you did an amazing job.  Thanks for trusting me as your 2nd.
R&T, have a great time in Europe, and we will be praying for your dad.

    cheers & thanks to the most wonderfully hilarious second shooter. ever. it was a most beautiful & relaxed day! :)ReplyCancel

This 2 week old little guy was positively delicious.  And I loved meeting his parents as well – you guys were awesome! :)  I’m always pretty nervous going into a newborn shoot, since as most of you know, newborns can have their own agenda.  They can be on a complete schedule, so we book a time for when the baby is usually sleeping, and then I walk in the door, and it’s like, hello!!  Playtime!!  But he did so good, awake or asleep – such a sweet temperament.  So thanks again for having me L & J!!

So, once again, it’s been a loooong while since I’ve updated the blog…  I would apologize, but who really cares right? :)
These 2 beautiful girls are from my church, and they both graduated recently.  We went out for an evening to a gorgeous location and had some fun!  They were up for anything – we got eaten alive by mosquitos, got dirty, and walked through stinging nettles.  But they smiled through it all!!

Having some fun with warm evening sun
Love the bokeh in this one.  And the model ain’t so bad either…:)
Having a close friend is such a blessing!
You girls are a wonderful testimony of God’s grace!  I love you!!

    ditto Rachel! thanks so much Jete for everything! we love the photos and I can't wait to see them printed! <3ReplyCancel

It is nearly impossible to get a good picture of Blake.  I mean, he’s stinkin’ adorable, but let’s face it, the kid is plain ole not photogenic.  So in the last 6 months, trying to get a picture of both boys together has been a study in hilarity.  Blake has not been happy with me lately, as I rather frequently plunk his baby brother in his personal space, and jump up and down acting like a complete sideshow trying to get both of them to look.  But today, a little bit of mommy magic happened.  I know these pictures are not “technically” perfect, but by golly, they are emotionally perfect.

and my little peanut, trying to be a big boy…

Jack asked me a while ago if I’d be interested in 2nd shooting a wedding for him.  My first reaction was to say, no way, I’m not ready, you’re crazy for asking!  But I decided to push myself, because how in the world am I going to learn, if I never set myself up to fail?  So here are some images from that day.  I know I still have a long way to go, but I had so much fun, and can’t wait for my next one!!  A HUGE thanks to Katie and Bill for letting me be a part of their special day!
