Three-Year-Old Portrait Attempts, The Hand-Me-Down Plant & Tissue Butterflies

This post is a smattering of this and that, a hodge-podge, mish-mash succatash.

We were playing with words at dinner tonight.
Lots of fun, slap it on a bun, brush it's teeth and make it run!
It's pretty hard to stop when it makes Evie giggle. Best sound in the world.

This is how our mini-photo shoot went...

Not incredibly well. Although, it's already funnier in hindsight than it was at the time. Just not quite the level of cooperation I was hoping for. We got some fun ones, but we'll try again another day, maybe outside, when I'm feeling better, (so that I'll have lots of patience).

And why on earth have I not trimmed this wacky plant?! I wanted to see if it would reach the ceiling if I let it. The funky little thing reached the top of the window and it bloomed! I didn't know it blooms. This was an adopted plant from our friend Jacque. She and her family couldn't take it with them when they moved to Mississippi. We miss you Jacque, and look at this crazy thing... delightfully wacky and beautiful. Just like you. :)

The last random thing for today are these tissue-paper butterflies... Evie kind of helped me with these. I need to do better at picking age-appropriate crafts. But these were so cute I couldn't resist. They were so easy to make, we might test the limits of how many are cute vs. infestation.

Still Wedding

I've made the leap back into wedding photography!

Not one that I took lightly... it requires me to be more of a planner (organized), and a bit of a gear-head. Neither of these things come naturally for me, but if I don't venture out of my areas of comfort, then I'll never grow, right?

So... thank you Lisa for having faith in me and for encouraging me to stretch myself!
You and Jamin are truly, lovely people and I felt blessed to try and capture that.

You were such a trooper, Lisa! It was quite cold and rainy, but you weren't phased by that... in fact, Jamin and I were more worried about you and your dress than you were.

Jamin's expression... hilarious.

I had so much fun seeing you two together, I can't imagine a better match of personalities.

The invitations and programs were made from Jamin's artwork! That. is. beautiful.

Lisa you are a beauty!

Pure joy on their faces!



Work it guys!

Beautiful girls.

So, I'm pretty convinced that this wedding party was about as fun as they get.

The sisters do their "mom-face".

I can't remember what started this fight, but it got pretty ugly!

I thought a baby was a pretty generous gift!

And whoever wrapped this has got skills.

THE prettiest flower-girls!

Calvin was ready to wallop them with this huge pile of leaves!

The leaf-toss was one of my favorite parts of the day, so colorful!



I love it that the Father of the Bride and his brothers were playing cards at the reception!

Thank you Jamin and Lisa!
It really was a gift for me to be a part of your lovely day!
I am so excited for this new chapter in your lives, God is so good.
