Life on a farm.

A few years ago I met these guys for the first time and took one of my favorite pics on their farm.

Since then, the family has changed and their newest addition ( baby B.) just arrived last week. So we traipsed all over the farm catching up with everyone, while I got to eat the most delicious cheese! If you are a cheese lover, please check out their FB page” Maid-N-Meadows” or website here. Their cheese comes from grass fed cow’s milk, is not processed, and I can say: Truly delicious!

I am so glad I got to meet their sweet little baby and get a glimpse of their busy and happy farm life again. And one of these days, I will get me a goat or sheep or at least a chicken-to call my own!

Thank you guys for letting me be your photographer and here is your sneak peek!

The Davis Family.

Yesterday I got to capture these guys at my currently favorite location. They brought their sweet dog Tigerlily and we had a blast creating some Christmas card material. The weather was perfect and lighting is surely my favorite of the year. Thanks for letting me do that. And here is you alls sneak peek!

 

Mr.& Mrs. Parker.

Yesterday I got to capture these guys as they said: “yes”. Alison and Bryan got married  in the midst of their daughters, at a beautiful location with the perfect Fall evening weather. There were lots of smiles and tears of joy and laughter. I am so happy for you guys and wish you the best on your journey TOGETHER!

Cousins.

This session was donated to a local fundraiser, helping a family recovering financially after their son was in a terrible accident last year. Even though I never met this boy, I am glad to hear that he is recovering well. So good things got done and I got to do what I love doing most 🙂

So these guys managed getting everyone together and color coordinated to create some memories. And I had a blast. Coming from a big family myself, I was reminded how fun it is to have lots of cousins to grow up with. I remember that birthday parties, vacations and get- togethers were never boring. And I think these kids are in for the same treat.

Thank you guys for helping with a good cause and I hope we get to do this again soon. And here is your sneak peek!

Last summer days….

With the pool season coming to an end, these guys got to jump into their favorite summer activity one last time. And as much as I am tired of the heat and looking forward to opening my windows while sipping on hot tea, I still had fun watching these boys having a blast in the pool. The littlest one just recently learned to swim and showed off his skills, while the big guys did all kinds of neat jumps. So I ended up in the pool myself and got some of this:

Thanks boys for being such good sports, and “just keep swimming, just keep swimming…

Family Fun.

A few weeks ago I captured these guys with my lens. They purchased this session through a local fundraiser benefiting a young woman battling GBM (Glioblastoma). Check out this young woman’s journey here .

So we met up at a beautiful park in Glasgow to create some memories. And I enjoyed hanging with these fun guys.

Thank you for making this happen. And here is your sneak peek.

Emily’s Journey.

Last week I took some pictures of this beautiful young lady. I met Emily for the first time last Fall at a local fundraiser held by her family here in Smiths Grove, KY. And if you do not know her or her story, you should consider joining her FB group: Emily’s Journey

Emily is twenty three years young, and over a year ago she was diagnosed with Glioblastoma (GBM) – a most aggressive cancer that begins in the brain. Since her diagnosis, she underwent brain surgery and chemotherapy and had several hospital and specialists appointments as anyone can imagine. And her tumor is stable! Within the next two weeks she will begin wearing the Optune device for 18 hours a day.

Emily is also a Titans fan. (She probably could teach me some things about football and I might actually would start watching the Super Bowl rather than eating myself through the buffet….haha.) She is also really close to her parents and sisters and has a large family, that she can hardly keep up with 🙂

And she smiles a lot. She chooses to be positive. She chooses to support others in their journey with GBM and celebrates their successes and sorrows their losses. She said that “tomorrow is promised to no one and to make the best out of every day…”

And doesn’t she just look beautiful?  Sister and friend did her hair and make-up and I think she had fun being “a model” for a bit.

Keep on smiling, Emily. And here is your sneak peek!

If you wish to support Emily and others on their fight with GBM, consider making a donation to either of these organisations.

Grand kids.

A couple of weeks ago I strolled around with this Nana and her grandchildren. The young man’s mom thought it was time to update some pics, and I couldn’t agree more! The days are long, but the years are short! Cause the next thing we know is that our kids are off to college and 5 minutes later …they’re getting married 🙂 Haha. Just saying: Time flies!

So while these guys are still in school and around, we created some memories to last.

Thank you guys for letting me do that. And here is your sneak peek!

Fifty years and counting….

Last weekend I got to be part of the 50th wedding anniversary of this sweet couple. Their daughter organized this event and invited family, friends, neighbors, and the original wedding party from 1968! There was laughter and hugs, long overdue conversations and tears of joy. And lots of pictures from half a century ago- until present day.

Needless to say, I had a blast being there.

Congratulations Martha & Darrell! And here is your sneak peek!
