It All Started When Two People Fell In Love!

How wonderful it was to capture these moments you are about to see!  We will start with the two people that started it all... Mr and Mrs. B. 
Mr. and Mrs. B first had a Daughter, who blessed them with a Son in law and  three handsome Grandsons!

Their next child was a Son, who also married, giving them a Daughter in law, two Granddaughters and another Grandson!

Mr. and Mrs. B's youngest child is also a Son, whom also married, adding another Daughter in law, two more Grandsons and a Granddaughter!

What a Blessed Family!  All of these children, created out of love! 

Just look at the love that this family has for each other!  I am so honored to have had the opportunity to capture these moments for this family.  This is what makes my job so special. 

Thank you to the "B" Family for sharing your love with me! 

As always, thank you for reading!

Baptism... Times 3!

For all my Blogger friends, I have a lot of catching up to do!  I have been a busy lady the past week!  This first session was a very special one, I witnessed and photographed three cousins Baptisms!  It was amazing!  This is such a special event, and I was honored to capture the memories for a special friend and her family. 

I hope that these images allow you to feel like you were there, enjoying the ceremony that brought these children and their families closer to God. 


May God bless you in this life, and guide you through all the trials that it brings.  I pray that you stay on the path that He leads, yet when you do fall off, you look to God for guidance.  Keep Jesus in your heart, little ones!  He is truly our Savior!
Thank your for reading!
