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!

The bulletin from their service
Not to take away from the above, but it was very nice to see my dad and family. I have 3 half siblings that I usually only see during the holidays and summer vacation, so it was nice to be in town and get to see how they do their daily school life. My dad and sisters Kacey and Bailey went to watch my brother Brett at his soccer practice on Thursday.
This is Ratliff Stadium, the stadium Friday Night Lights is based off of.
There's nothin' like some west Texas sun flair!
It was 69 degrees as we watched the boys practice.. beautiful!
My sister can't miss a minute of her brother playing (*cough*.. lie.. *cough*)
Isn't she cute?
I will leave this up till she makes me take it down :c)
My dad.. no messin' around during soccer~
My Toms.. very important to document (they were my Christmas present from Ray)
The Becker girls
Me and my dad
I also attended my little brother Barron's basketball game (he's #12 in the center)
And to complete it all, this morning I watched my little sister, Bailey, and her team perform a jump rope routine.
Again, thank you for your prayers. I know I've been asking for a lot latley, but that's what life has for me right now. I'm just thankful for a God who's big enough to take care of it all.

Speaking of giving what we can. I felt totally blessed this week to be able to give my time to a friend to babysit. This may sound very simple and unexciting to you, but a year and a half ago I decided to change my status at work to 'special pay' so I could not work at the hospital every other weekend, but spend more time photographing and the weekends. I also decided to teach clinicals so I could make this all work. Well, it didn't fall together in time, so I continued to work full-time, teach, and photograph (with the help of a boss who let me off on the weekends). This Monday, I signed the papers to become special pay. Several weeks ago I had to tell the school I couldn't teach anymore because I was out of vacation days. In between that time I decided I needed to start my Photo Life Group back up. Then on Tuesday, a day I've worked ever since I've been working at Deaconess, I was at home getting ready for PLG when a friend called in need of a babysitter. The fact that I could say yes made me so happy. I could feel God working through all of the decisions we had recently made, and through the creation of margin (check out last week's Life Church series to see more on margin) in my life, I was available to help. God is so good.
Here's a blown out, close up, off center pic of me and the little man.
