This weekend was my first time playing “wedding coordinator” and I loved every minute of it. I even bought something blue to make sure I fit in with the wedding colors. Here are some snap shots I took while directing their rehearsal. 😉

Most people have seen plenty of photos tying the three of us together, but not everyone understands what drew us together so many years ago. We were once three young women, with single mom’s, with strong personalities. Today, we are strong women, who have survived our childhoods, with strong personalities. We didn’t always have a man to ask for help, so we grew up asking each other for help. We have always taken care of each other and we always will. If I weren’t married, I’d be living with these two. Here’s a peek into their cozy little lives.
Today was simply beautiful. Every weekend of this month, I have made it a point to take my Nikon and have it tag along on my every adventure. The memories that have been captured from today, will definitely last a lifetime. Heather and I have always been different, but what I love is that while we have many similar things, we have our own way of making it our own.
I can’t believe in three and a half years , I haven’t taken a day to discover what lay 20 minutes away from my home. A little afternoon adventure with my childhood church friends was the perfect way to kickstart my weekend. Who wants to come visit and uncover more treasure?
Last Saturday, Yvette and I put together a mini photo shoot to raise money to help pay for the students who went to science camp. I don’t know much about photography, but I remember when I first discovered my love for capturing the quizzical faces of the young students at the childcare center I used to work for. After being placed in charge of snapping photos for their portfolios, I discovered how much I loved being able to narrate a picture, simply by capturing their facial expressions and their surroundings. So last Saturday, I tried just that, taking the love that already exists in the homes of our students and finding a way to pull them together. Here are a few of my favorites from the families that have allowed me to use their photos as a sample of our love fest.
