Hey there!

Thanks for stopping by my blog- a place where I share a bit of my photography, a bit of my life, and a lot of me! I am in love with the life that God has provided me. I live with my wonderful husband in central Oklahoma, in the town of Edmond. I am a wife, sister, daughter, and friend. I enjoy my work as a nurse and photographer. I adore sweets, nature, and my pesky (but cute) boxer, Honey. I feel that I am blessed with a passion for photography, and pray that I am able to bless others through it.

Thank you for being here and sharing the experience with me!

blessings from the last week~

my life is full of blessings. i realize this.
but last week, it was undeniable.
one such blessing was that my dad was in town this week. he lives in odessa, tx, but his work sometimes brings him up this way and it's always great to get a chance to see him. the first blessing that came out of this is the deal we got on our 'crank' couch in our game room. since we have a roommate, our guest bed is occupied, so we went out shopping last minute and found the futon-like couch we were looking for on sale at garden ridge.. what an awesome place!
but the biggest blessing of his trip up here was our rib cookout! i have always loved my dad's ribs, but i haven't had them in years, and now that we have a grill, i wanted ray to know how to cook them. so it was perfect timing that my dad was able to show him the ropes..
here's what i look like enjoying them, i thought you would enjoy this pic of me as a kid better than a 25 year old adult with bbq sauce all over her face :c)
the next one is not really my blessing, but it belongs to my stepdad. now let me premise that he is an avid fisherman, and my mom for years now has the record of the biggest bass in our family at 8lbs. but this week felton was able to reel in this huge 11 pound bass in texas!! i guess everything is bigger in texas~ but like any true fisherman, he released his fish to continue to grow into an even bigger fish. i'm proud of you felton!
this is one of my shots straight out of the camera from my wedding last weekend. i just love the silhouette with the color, and of course the flair! i consider the capturing of this picture a blessing..which leads to my next blessing. moments after taking the above picture, we rushed outside to hurry off to the reception site. in the above stated pace, i placed my camera with my big stalker lens on a bench outside to snag a quick shot of the couple in the limo, when my very expensive lens went crashing to the ground! this is what it looked like when i picked it up.
yikes! i'm surprised martin and elene didn't have to revive me on the spot (martin's an er nurse and elene's in pharmacy school). but i just had to pack it away to deal with later. the next day ray was able to work with it and get the lens filter off, which gives us the biggest blessing of the week.....
it was just the filter!!
my lens works beautifully, i had to make an adjustment on the body, but now it is back to normal, and the only thing injured was a cheap uv protection filter (it protected not only the sun, but the very mean ground!)
whew, i'm still recovering over this :c)
but i almost forget my blessing last night.. 1 was ordering some totally rad actions for photoshop that i've been looking at, and for some reason, unable to get the past couple weeks. but lo and behold, last night they were on sale and i finally got my order to go through! i love sales :c)
i hope you have a blessed weekend!
i'll be shooting an engagement shot and easter shot today!
