  • About me

    Hi, my name is Amy. I am a wife to my hard working husband, mommy to three beautiful kids, and I am an artist. I am a pretty simple person, and I am working hard to share God's beauty through photography and art. Thanks for visiting my blog. Here you will find lots of images, and my own daily musings about life. :)

Beautiful Brooklyn is 7 months!

Brooklyn was one of the prettiest newborns I had ever seen, and she is still so beautiful.  Seriously this girl’s eyes could melt a heart of stone I think.  I love the 6-7 month age range.  They can sit, they have lots of personality, and they have just changed so much since their newborn session.  I had fun taking pictures of Brooklyn and her parents.  They are such a sweet family.  I can’t wait for her 1 year pics in a few more months!

{Faith 52} Song of Soloman 3:4

“For I have found the one whom my soul loves.”

Song of Soloman 3:4

….It’s coming… that’s right, just a few more days until February 14th! I personally do love Valentines day.  I know lots of people look at it as a holiday Hallmark must have invented to make a bigger sale, but I don’t even care if they did.  It’s a great Holiday….. I like being romantic.

Bryson and I started our marriage on September 17th with a beautiful garden wedding.  It was such a beautiful day! We had an awesome honeymoon in Maui, and then … just a few weeks later found out we were expecting.  Oops, and surprise! Of course we wouldn’t trade Charlotte for anything, but it was a tough way to start our marriage, especially since we had decided to not even have a conversation about having kids for a year. {I had to break that rule early!} We were scared and excited.  I did have a good cry and freak out, but then I realized this was a blessing, even if I didn’t know it yet.  From that very first appointment where I heard that little beating heart, I was in love!  My changing body wasn’t what I expected it to be the first year of marriage, but Bryson found me attractive anyway.  The following years have been filled with babies, diapers, and lots of love.  When I look at these little faces and see my husband and myself in them I can’t help but be amazed by our creator, and love Bryson more then ever.  Of course we have our ups and downs, like any marriage, but because our loved is based on something bigger then us, and because we made a promise to God, we will always make it work. We laugh a lot… I love that about our relationship.  We don’t always {or ever} agree, but we can usually come up with a great compromise if we work together and keep humor in our lives.

Now I need to get busy and figure out if it isn’t too late to get a sitter to maybe have a night out with my man!  I kinda wait last minute for these things.:)

I truly have found the one my soul loves. Thank you God for that blessing.

my moody boy…

Pierson doesn’t always wake up from a nap super happy… He usually needs to wake up a little on his own before he is ready to talk. (hummmm, reminds me of someone… oh yeah… his dad).  Anyway, my friend Kim inspired me to take some photos with my older-then-dirt, film camera so when Pierson woke up I sat him on this windowsill and took some moody pictures with the ol’ trusty right at “golden hour”.  I was super nervous about the exposure so I took the same exposure with my instant gratification digital camera.  I did a tiny bit of editing, because I can’t help it, but was happy with the outcome.

Now I need to send my film in and see what comes back! (YIKES!) Did/do people really shoot weddings like this? Ok, I did once with a friend ($150 each!), but I was in college and a photography student, and we made $300.  Ok, well… my friend Kristy and I probably lost about $300 after developing lots of film, paying a speeding ticket we got on the way to the wedding (I wasn’t driving!!) and  printing a couple hundred photos that we put into an album we purchased.  I would totally freak out to shoot a wedding like that now… (I didn’t know much) … Live and learn right?
