a year in pictures

looking back through these pictures was so much fun and a reminder of how blessed i am. there’s absolutely no feeling like knowing someone is pleased with their photos, and it’s also humbling to realize they will be in albums for years to come! thank you to everyone who trusted me with capturing your memories!

happy new year!

beautiful baby margot

our good friends bobby and emily stayed with us for a night last week, and it was definitely a full house {4 adults, one baby, and 4 dogs}. our cozy little cottage was bursting at the seems, but i don’t think anyone minded a bit. david and i only wish they could come by more often! we hadn’t planned to take pictures, but i just couldn’t help myself, so i convinced bobby and emily that they h.a.d. to stop by on their way home. these were the adorable results:

baby smiles are the cutest!

we moved inside to warm up for a bit, but that didn't stop me from taking more pictures!

the mcquagge family

the mcquagges are a family of 7, so i knew our session would be exciting. mary, my friend tammy’s sister, did a fantastic job picking out colorful outfits for everyone, and i especially l.o.v.e.d. the red dress her youngest daughter was wearing! and although the sun didn’t peek its head out that morning, we didn’t let that stop us from having tons of fun and getting lots of joy-filled pics.

what a beautiful family!

my new blog {yippee}

i can hardly believe it – my first post on my brand new blog. the only thing it’s missing is the “new blog smell.” but not to worry, you can imagine that to be whatever you like! roses, a lexus with leather interior, freshly-baked apple pie, etc…

the old blog is still hanging around, but i won’t be updating it anymore. who knows, maybe someday i’ll get the crazy idea to bring all of my old work over here, but at this minute, that sure sounds like a lot of extra work. so, if you ever get the longing to see any pics from the old blog, just head on up to the “links” tab, and click on “the old blog“. it’s that easy!

and because no post is complete without a picture, here’s one i took the other day. it’s red and cheery and makes me smile.
