The Journey of Desire

My husband LOVES to read..... It's one of his favorite things to do. In fact, he often says that more than a vacation to an exotic location filled with fun & friends, he'd prefer a trip by himself to an isolated cabin to do nothing but read. I am quite the opposite - After about 2 hours alone in a cabin I'd be calling everyone I know & inviting them over. I'm an extrovert through-and-through & rarely spend time alone, much less in "silence."

This is probably one of the reasons that I basically never read. There have been a select few books in my lifetime that I tore through the pages of, unable to stop reading (namely Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers... AMAZING book). For the most part, however, I don't make time to read, and if I do, it usually ends in me falling asleep.

I have a family FULL of read-a-holics..... my husband, dad, best friends... my grandma is a librarian for peats-sake! I feel like I'm missing out.... So I am attempting a new book. It's called The Journey of Desire and it's by John Eldredge. I am trying something a little different as I read this time. I am going to have my notebook with me as I read so that when I read something that stands out to me I can jot it down.... I'm hoping this will keep me more focused as I read.

Noah is napping, so off I go to curl up with my blanket, coffee & book.....

Dallas - Senior Photo Session

I was blessed today with more wonderful weather & another awesome senior. We had alot of fun today - Dallas is a great guy! Even despite the fact that he likes to get his mom in a headlock :o) Just kidding, Dallas! Had a great time today & hope you love these next few shots as much as I do!

One final photo for your viewing pleasure this evening.... Dallas has been attending his church, Guts, for several years & is an important part of his life, so when his mom suggested getting a few shots there, I thought it was a fantastic idea!

Kandi & Jared - Wedding!

Last week I shared photos from Kandi & Jared's Engagement shoot.... And today, shots from their wedding! The couple tied the knot last week in a beautiful evening wedding. Kandi was absolutely radiant & Jared made a point to make sure the lights weren't too bright in his eyes during the ceremony so that he could see her in all her glory making her way towards him as his perfect bride. What a great day! Congrats Kandi & Jared!!!

The first two shots are from Kandi's bridal session a few weeks prior:

Kandi & Jared Engagement

Kandi & Jared are not newly engaged, in fact they're getting married this weekend, but they decided to do a last minute engagement session anyways! I love shooting engagement sessions... they're one of my favorite things to photograph, so of course I was pleased to help them out there! I talk alot about the weather during photoshoots in my blog,.... mostly because it's usually less than perfect, but yesterday the weather was BEAUTIFUL! Summer is indeed on it's way!

Here are a few photos from our shoot together.... and stay tuned this weekend for shots from their wedding! Can't wait- Congrats you two!!
