Photography ~ First Senior Session

I had my first senior photo session yesterday. It was a privilege to capture Anthony's senior photographs.

Photography ~ Becky, Elizabeth & Clara

As I was driving by this field, I noticed the beautiful soft grass. They are weeds, really ~ but they were SO pretty! I had the opportunity to capture a few photographs of our friends Becky, Elizabeth and Clara before the sun set.

Library Day!

As a homeschool family we LOVE going to the library. Griffin enjoys being surrounded by books and making selections from the shelves. Today, Clara went with us!

At The Drive-In ...

We enjoyed going to the drive-in movie theatre with our neigbhors, the Gills, tonight. We saw Zootopia and The Jungle Book. We got there early and there was plenty of time for fun before the movies started. You can tell Griffin wasn't in the mood for a picture here. (HaHa)

What do you do after Lego Club? You head over to Jumpology for the afternoon! We also accepted the cell phone challenge at CFA and succeeded ~ we were rewarded with an ice cream cone! Had a great afternoon with Griffin and Branden.

Griffin: Look Momma, it's an automatic hand washer ~ as the rain dripped off the roof.

Photography ~ Chelsea + Ricky

These two are absolutely the SWEETEST couple! I loved every single moment of capturing these photographs for Chelsea and Ricky. They are expecting a precious baby in November and today they got the first glimpse. The fallen cherry blossoms were blanketing my backyard and it made a beautiful back drop for photographs today.

Book Store!

We had several errands to run while in town today. So, I told Griffin we could go somewhere of his choice while we were three. He chose the bookstore. One of his favorite places to go!

My Photography Assistant.

I've had the opportunity to capture photographs lately. Griffin is my 'photography assistant' ~ he loves having a 'job' and is very good with the responsibilities. He helps me set up and talks with the kids if present. He's a pretty awesome kid!

Photography ~ Ralph + Deborah

These two are SO much fun to be around. Their smiles are genuine, their laughter is contagious and their LOVE for each other is adorable and real!

It was a pleasure to photograph this amazing couple on this beautiful spring afternoon!

Foodie Adventurers.

We were invited over to a friend's house for dinner tonight. It was breakfast for dinner tonight! Love having friends that enjoy experimenting with Pinterest foodie ideas ~ such as bacon wrapped Oreos, Krispy Kreme donut waffles and chocolate chip cookie dough stuffed waffles. We certainly do not eat like this every night, but it was fun going on a foodie adventure!

He always has an idea ...

Griffin always has an idea to work on or something to draw. Tonight he's making a list of Geometry Dash level names and then he will build them another day. In his opinion, naming the levels first increases his ability to design them.
