And what is a cookie exchange without friends. Somehow though, I missed Rachel in these shots. We sure laughed a lot and shared great stories. Thanks for coming, friends!
After saying goodbye to Andrew and Ann, I got to spend a few hours being shown around Muncie, Indiana by none other than Elmar. I worked with Elmar for a year and now he is pursuing a PhD at Ball State. Good times!
Ann and Andrew are leaving for France soon. It was good to see them one last time at a goodbye party. I’ll miss you guys so much!
Our neighbors hosted an outdoor movie night, projecting Rio onto the front of their house! 10 kids and 8 adults were having a fun time until a thunderstorm cut the movie early.
I love capturing family moments!
Today, we visited with Dennis and Lori, longtime friends of mine from Alaska! They were visiting their beautiful granddaughters in Colorado Springs. It was so great to see them and catch up. They partner with us in our ministry and needless to say it is difficult to get up to Alaska very often, so when friends are nearby, we are thrilled to visit.
My coaching group: Mickie, Chasity and Malissa.
Have I mentioned what great neighbors we have? Guy and Jason spread 3 cubic yards of mulch in our yard today. That’s A LOT of MULCH! With John’s broken ankle, we considered not doing this at all. But great neighbors stepped in and took care of it for us! We are so thankful and grateful! You guys are great!
I did my first maternity shoot today. SO MUCH FUN! Kasie and Chris are from our small group at church, and I was excited when they asked me to take some pictures. Turns out I am thankful for the rain and the slight flooding of a field near their house. LOVE THIS!
Ann and her husband Andrew are moving to Paris next year. I think they will fit right in.
I’m at a conference for wives this week. I offered to take some portraits of people during the free time. I love this one of Jessi, Mandi and Debbie. I didn’t have to do anything as far as posing, I just snapped away.
