I’m Still Here!

August 20, 2015

I know it has been a LONG time since I have updated the blog with anything and questions may have justifiably been asked if I am even still around, well I am here! I have been on a self imposed hiatus for the past couple of years while my two oldest children graduated from high school and my oldest left home to join the United States Marine Corps! I needed time to spend with them and adjust to the changes in our lives as kids grow up and move on. You’d think there would be more time as your kids get older but the reality is, time is more precious and every moment counts!
I have worked in a few photos here and there in the past couple of years and hope to continue for my clients!

It was a bit of a chilly morning this past weekend, but these girls were such troopers!

It was a gorgeous evening and the air was pretty crispy =)  I adore fall and photographing this family!

Sometimes it is amazing outside and sometimes it is a bit chilly in the fall.  When we scheduled this session it was pretty HOT out at the time, but the day OF the session, not so much!  That is OK, we planned to do and indoor/outdoor session so we jumped outside and put our best warm thoughts on and got some great shots and then jumped back inside to warm up and capture some images by window light =)  It’s Nebraska and with the weather in the fall you gotta be flexible!

I had the honor of photographing this family 5 years ago when their youngest daughter was brand new!  It was a huge blessing to come back after all these years and see how this beautiful family has grown and celebrate Mom’s birthday with a photo shoot!!

I knew it would be busy.  I knew there would be other photographers, other families.  I did NOT expect what I found when I arrived for this family’s photo session!  Obviously the OPPD Arboretum is a popular fall photo location but I think half the city was there having their photos done Saturday night.  Who could blame them!  The weather was perfect, the color was gorgeous…  But, I didn’t expect 4 to 6 wedding parties, and half a dozen other photo sessions all vying for the sweet spots!  We found our own and managed the seemingly impossible – capturing images without a hint of the chaos going on around us!  I am so glad we got it done and the images are gorgeous, but I am taking a mental note to say that Saturday evenings in the fall are off limits for the arboretum!

This is a photo session that has been at least a year in the making!  So glad we were finally able to nail down a day and get the details worked out =)  Just LOVE this family!  If you are ever in need of a bike or any cycling needs you have to go to BikeMasters – they are the best in Omaha and just happen to be this family’s business!

I love being able to do what I do – take photos that capture the relationships and moments that mean so much to people.  Every session is special because it means so much to the families I work with.  This session was extra special this weekend, not only because of the people involved but because it was an honor to photograph a family who will be sacrificing so much for our country these next 6 months.  Please keep them in prayer while they are separated by continents in the defense of our nation!  I pray these photos will give them joy and comfort over then next few months and be a precious memory of this time in the years to come!
