Fishing Day

Last Saturday I got the pleasure of going fishing with my dad. We woke up at 4:30 a.m. and left out of Fayetteville at 5:00 a.m.!!! I am not a morning person, but for dad I will sacrifice. hehehehe! And I was so glad I did becuase it was a beautiful morning. The temperatures Friday had been in the 90's, then overnight had dropped to 57 degrees! So when we got there, there were huge rolls of fog coming out of the coves and off of the water and it was just amazing!! I had taken my small camera (not a professional one) and got some pictures of this amazing site. We got to the lake and put the boat in, and sure enough, the motor wouldn't start. But we made the best of it and just used the trolling motor and a paddle. Good thing we didn't get mad and leave or we would have missed the blessing God had for us. God is good, all the time.

After the sun started coming out, the fog on the water would start coming together until it started rotating and it began to make these little tornadoe clouds! It was so cool! I have never seen anything like it. Dad said it reminded him of the water spouts in Florida, only way smaller!

Baby Courtney

Baby Courtney is here! And I got the pleasure of taking her pictures. She is now4 weeks old I believe and was the best little model! I haven't done many baby shoots, but out of all of them so far she was the best baby! She just slept away the whole time and never cried or fussed. The only down part is there are not many photos with her little eyes open! But maybe when she's a bit older we can do another session with open eyes. Here is a little preview for you!

4th of July

Hello everyone!

Well, this holiday we went out to Goshen to spend the 4th with Nathan's family. Thanks to Sharon & Allen for hosting the festivities this year! The minute we arrived I was amazed at how beautiful of a place it was. Their home is set on top of a mountain overlooking several rolling hills and valleys, and the clouds were just beautiful that night. I just love the light when the sun is setting. Such a beautiful sunny yellow color.
We begun the night with a huge dinner and then on to fireworks! Here are a few shots of Nathan and his nephew Caleb shooting off some bottle rockets. And of course I got made fun of for spotting some thistle and shooting it for about 20 minutes! :-) I can't help it! Enjoy!
