I’ve had these gorgeous pictures on my computer for awhile and I’m so excited to finally be sharing some of them on here…meet Kim; to say she’s awesome would be an understatement.  She has a great sense of humour, and is always up for an adventure wether it be a road trip or just a coffee shop meet up.

Kim has grown into a strong young woman who works hard to achieve her dreams such as organizing a young people’s mission trip because she’s interested in missions in Ecuador.

Not only have I been inspired but her “get’r’done” attitude but also by her self discipline and determination to learn something new.

She’s also got the musical gift…on the day I snapped these pictures she “only” had two of the five (I think!) instruments she can play.  We were missing the banjo, a piano, and a bass guitar. (I could probably add in mandolin …which would make six) and I could very well be missing a couple more.

I’m excited to see where God is going to lead her and how He’s going to use her for His kingdom!

Oh, hey 2014…?!

Somehow…since the last time I blogged; not only has Christmas pasted but also New Years, and all the fun, joy, love, celebrating and craziness and general chaos that surrounds them… it’s hard to believe we’ve passed the halfway mark through January! :-S

Anyways, just a little note to say that I’m back around (hopefully! 😉 ) and am super excited to be sharing some recent-ish photo sessions on here very soon!

So for today enjoy the adorable smile, the twinkling eyes, and sprays of freckles…I can’t help but smile when I see that face 😀

Utter Adorableness

I fell in love with this picture the minute I saw it upload from my camera.

The moment.

The love.

The expression.

The eyelashes.

The hint of a smile or forthcoming laugh.

Sometimes the most beautiful things in life are a fleeting moment, I was excited to catch one in my lens.

This Moment

This story behind the photograph…

Last night we were all sitting down to dinner and I looked over and saw Lulu crawling towards the door – immediately, I saw the above picture in my mind – exactly as you see it.  So I pulled my iPod out of my pocket and snapped it.

Sometimes our favourite pictures aren’t taken on an amazing camera. I love this picture because of the story it tells.  It’s the story of my baby sis – Lulu, barely a year old…discovering and exploring the world around her. It’s precious because in a few weeks she’ll be walking – she’s still in that crawl everywhere stage. Her whole life – the whole world out there – is ahead of her – waiting to be discovered.

And I captured one tiny moment of it.

Time is flying by – and the only time that “belongs” to us is this very moment – right now.  Everything else is either already past or in the future. (Think about that, eh!)

So be thankful for right now; use right now to its full potential.

The Big Dipper

I’m not usually a night photographer – in fact, I’d never even tried to take a picture of stars.  So, for my first try – I’m pretty happy! Actually – when I uploaded this picture to my computer – I was amazed – beyond amazed to see the night sky on my computer screen… amazed that I was able to (somewhat) capture a few seconds of the majesty of the night sky. It’s an emotion I wasn’t expecting…wow!

Here’s just a quick little continuation from yesterday.

I just love babies, and how ‘perfect’ they are…I can’t get over how something so small can be created so perfectly…ten little fingers…ten tiny toes.

It’s been a little while since I posted a black and white picture – enjoy! 🙂  This is more on the artistic side of things, and I like this image – a lot. It was taken while I was in Colorado a few weeks ago.

Converse All Stars

They’ve been on my list for awhile (dare I say years?).  So I’m kind of excited I found a pair of normal black high top converse all stars. The best part? I (apparently) fit into a boys size five so I only paid $20 😛

So, now that I finally own a pair… I’m open to suggestions.

Do you wear All Stars? What do you pair them with? Ever wear them with dresses/skirts? With skinny jeans? What’s you’re favourite All Stars + _____ combo?
