New Favorite

This has nothing to do with photography, but thought I would share anyway. A lot of my friends are very devoted and interesting bloggers....I'm just not one of them. I love reading other blogs and love writing in my journal, but when I know that really anybody could read what I write, I get very intimidated and tend to clam, I just stick with the pen and ink thing.
Moving on....I love watching movies as long as Eden is sleeping and I can either be at the theater with Jeremy or downstairs with the lights out and the volume up. My attempt to imitate the theater experience while wearing my PJ's in my own home (well, for now, my Mom's home....but not for long!!).
Anyway, I just thought I would share a new favorite. Jeremy and I went to a movie for our date-night last Friday (yes, having a built-in babysitter has paid off significantly). We saw the movie "Dan in Real Life", a romantic comedy. If you haven't seen this yet, YOU HAVE TO SEE IT!! It was excellent. Both Jeremy and I loved it and plan on buying it when it comes out. It is hysterical and so sweet. Best of all, it is very clean (a must for me). I honestly do not know why it was rated PG-13. Maybe they were just trying to attract an older audience or something.
It was great though and I highly recommend it to everybody, which is hard to do these days. Great, clean movies are hard to come by, but this is one of them. So, get a babysitter, splurge and buy those ridiculously priced movie tickets sit back, and get ready to laugh.

First Paying Gig

And...we're back. I haven't posted new photos for a while. I did this session the day before we left for Oregon. This is a friend of my sisters. They have 2 of the cutest little girls I have ever seen. And man, have they got style. They were so fun to shoot. Their youngest kept me running, but we pulled off some good shots even though she only held still for about the first 5 minutes. I was a little nervous when I did the shoot, because the sun went down a lot sooner than I expected it to, so it was quite dark. I think it added a cool ambiance to it though. After all we are going into winter, so the cool colors worked well. I hope you like them, Amber. Thanks again! Thanks to my sister, Jules, as well for being my "special helper". It really helped a lot.
By the way, Amber's husband does custom made frames as a hobby and is really good. Let me know if you need a hook-up.Aren't these girls beautiful? Blonde hair and dark brown eyes...gorgeous!

I was going for the vintage look on the one above. Do you like?

My little princess

I really didn't take many pictures on Halloween because we were up in Oregon and i was very distracted with everything that was going on. It was a blast, and Eden had the time of her life playing with her cousins. They are so good with her. I need to get some pictures from my parents camera because I know that they took quite a few. This will do for now though...just a shot of Eden with her Cinderella costume on at one of the many Halloween parties she attended.
Be prepared for an overload of pictures one of these days....I did my first paying gig for one of my sister's friends. And, I took family photos of my brother's family while we were in Oregon. I will work on getting those posted one of these days.
Also, if you haven't heard, we are closing on a house here on the 19th!!!! Hooray! We are so excited and truly feel so blessed and grateful for the Lord's hand in our lives each and every day. He truly does listen to and answer prayers even though it is in His timing, which is always the best timing for us. The next month or so is going to be jam packed full of wonderful things. I love Thanksgiving (it is by far my most favorite holiday), and we close on our house and move in the same week. Isn't that great?!?
