Less words. More photos
Bath time with my lil loves in black and white.
“This job has been given to me to do. Therefor, it is a gift. Therefore, it is a priviledge. Therefore, it is an offering I may make to God. Therefore, it is to be done gladly, if it is to be done in him. Here, not somewhere else, I may learn God’s way. In this job, not in some other, God looks for faithfulness,” -Elisabeth Elliot
Working on the legacy I am leaving with my kids-starting with memories-How will they remember me? More on this later………
Speaking of legacy, go check out Rowe, Sydney’s Premier Children’s Photographer living in Bali. I keep telling her I might come live with her. You guys KNOW ME RIGHT? Ha! I’m totally coming to live with you Rowe!!!!!!!
Have a Blessed Week.
Wait. Whoa. It’s April 10th. When did that happen? I guess I can’t believe it because Colorado decided to bring January back like JT brought sexy back only no one is sexy when frozen solid and snot is draining from their face. It’s 15 degrees and dropping and all I can see right now/dream about are Margs on a beach. Cause it’s 5 o’clock somewhere-FOLKS!
Anyways, glad you are all here to make the circle of the 10 on 10 girls. Go visit Ashley next, I love the way she sees things! This month I kept it simple with random musings from the month from my new obsession INSTAGRAM. [pssst:You can find me at nicole_dina]
I am a total i-phone newbie. & could kick myself for not getting one sooner……. because life with kids changes in a instant annnnnnnnd sometimes all you have is that one instant. to get that one shot. of that one moment. that your fancy smancy huge giant camera sitting on your desk which I might add hasn’t seen the light of day in over a month would never get because your too lazy to run downstairs and then back up again.
That was a mouthful.
So my 10 on 10 is IG photos-all snapped on the I-phone. Enjoy and come find me.

Somebody slap me, How is it MARCH? I did these in OCTOBER. This fall was full of blessings and I was SO grateful to get back down there to visit with friends and photograph their families. It is sooooooooo my love language-I ask myself daily how I got so lucky-here I am doing something I LOVE. Here is the first in a series of SEVEN. The McD’s. Beth is my sister from another mister.For real. When my husband was deployed she called me EVERY SINGLE DAY to make sure no one murdered me at night. Now if that isn’t true friendship now-a-days…… I tell you, SOUL SISTAS. I love short people in general, but add sarcasm and I am yours forever. xo.
The sun is flirting with the horizon a little bit longer these days-so goes spring dance.
Nature, of course, leads while we all follow in giddy anticipation, looking for ways to leave the weight of the winter behind us. And so, with spring’s promise looming, there is no better time to bring its lightness of being to our daily source of rejuvenation.
& Spring can’t come soon enough. As I am typing a blizzard swirls, reminding me of it’s dance with winter.
I wanted this month’s post to be about my sweet and only little girl. My heart changed forever the day this little bean was born.She made me a mother. Something about that will always tie me so deeply to my daughter. The drastic changes each year brings & with spring looming I yearn to stop her from growing. My love for her grows more entangled into the depths of my soul and into places I never knew I could love from.
Kenna:I can’t even put into words what you have done to my heart, sweet Bean. With eyes like marbles and a heart of Gold. With your red cowgirl boots, red-bow hairband, and tutu (that you where everyday) you make light shine through your smiles. You are strong and fierce yet tender and soft. I wish I could bottle up your empathy and sweetness to share with the world. Always keep you head held high & Love the hell out of life because that’s what you have taught me. I love you to the moon & back. And always know I would move mountains for you, I would swim the depths of the sea for you, and fly as high as I could to make you know my love.
now go keep the circle going and check out Gina @ 505, she makes Texas look good! http://505pictures.com/?p=861
hello blog world. we haven’t seen each other since, hmmmm, October? I guess that’s what happens in the fall? ha!
i am so excited to start this year off with an amazing group of photographers doing this super cool 10 on 10 project. 10 photos. on the 10th.
life had other plans, as hard as I tried-getting this started in January it was NOT happening. computer crashed-blog crashed-& we decided to remodel the second round of renovations needed in our home. anyways enough about that-here i am! hive fives all around!!!! i am back and ready to share SO many photos!
at first I thought I would do a theme, but then I realized. my life isn’t a theme & the whole point of me wanting to join in on this project was just to capture photos of my family. nothing fancy.
plain and simple.
so enjoy, ten photos of the most important things in my life and while your at it stop by bee chalmers blog. i have actually been dying to see this post all week.
let’s play where is waldo? only not waldo. can you guess what this photo contains? #peek-a-boo! I just had to include at least one shot of the madness/construction #liferightnow.
after-just waiting on our mantel!
back to our regularly scheduled program. tweedle dee & tweedle dum
What are the rules? I said & she said, Do exactly what I want whenever I want, make no demands of me whatsoever & love me forever, no questions asked & I said, how do you win? & she said, you don’t understand. I’m the only one who wins & then she laughed & clapped her hands. Isn’t it a great game? she said.- the story people
A young Airforce couple. He is at the Academy & she is a Nursing student. Aren’t they flawless? So much love & life. The best thing about engagement sessions are the memories that come flooding back. Life is just flying by…….Good luck on all of your adventures together. It was a blessing to capture your love!
In those days, we finally chose to walk like giants & hold the world with arms grown strong with love & there maybe many things we choose to forget in the days to come, but this will not be one of them.-Story People.
Is this not one of the best looking couples? I love when I get clients from Texas because my heart misses that place!!!! High-school sweethearts & just still so in love…….. How awesome is it to have a session where you just focus on each other? Makes you stop in your busy day to day life and enjoy life. I really need to do this with my Dane & SOON. I hope to see you again and spend more time with you guys. Come shoot some gophers at my place, ha!
Enjoy your photos, Waltons! I had such an amazing time with you
In the space, the pause, between this breath and the one that follows, you have made a home inside me. — Tyler Knott Gregson
I think there is something to be said, when you leave a session & dad turns to you and says- “this was actually fun!”
You see, I see this whole photography thing as more* than taking pictures. I am a story teller. I maybe only here for a fraction of time your life, but oh.my.word. when the lighting is right…..it is just magic! I know I say this alot, but I LOVED THIS FAMILY.
me & the sunshine have a good thing goin………..
Enjoy your photos O’malley family. Hugs. Blessings. & I hope to see you soon.
Sometimes you just want a family to adopt you.
This was one of those times.
Loved this session x10.
Cute kids, loving husband, pretty mamma.
