I made the switch...

I have had a wonderful relationship with my Motorola Droid and I loved it, until this last week.  It started dropping 3G coverage randomly and even freezing up and bad lagging.

I had been thinking about switching to an iPhone since I got my Macbook Pro, and this confirmed my decision.  So as of now, I am the owner of a shiny new iPhone 4!  

Only time will tell if I like it a lot, but so far, so good!
Any advice from current iPhone users on good apps or layouts for the phone would be much appreciated.  I am quite new at this format. :o)

Wedding invitations

With my sister Elizabeth getting married soon, I have been involved with engagement pictures and printing for the big day.

I really love how Mpix prints their wallet size photos in metallic finish.  You have got to see these in real life to truly appreciate the cool high quality look!

Friend Shoot

Have you ever thought about doing a friend shoot?  

It makes for a great time of memories that will last forever thanks to photography.   A friend album will not only last for a lifetime, but it could also be the most amazing gift ever!  Christmas, birthday or just because you are an awesome friend.  

Contact me if you are interested in a shoot for you and your best friends!

My curly-haired sister and her friend Anna.

Another curly-haired sister and her friend Kaity.  (Most of my sisters are curly-tops if you hadn't figured that out yet.)

A little merry-go-round fun!

Two women drivers at once?  Not so sure about this idea!  :o)

Sisters and also best friends.

Before & After

I am usually really bad at getting "before & after" pictures of projects I am working on, so I am very impressed with myself due to the fact that I remembered this time! :o)

This is how my front room gallery/studio looked before...

And this is how it looks right now!
 I am looking forward to installing curtains, painting all the trim and hanging canvas wraps on the walls!

A few portraits

While we were visiting some good friends yesterday, the evening light was perfect for portraits, so we headed outside to get some updated profile pictures. :o)


Karisse and Lizzy

Nathan, cute as ever!

Rardin Family

What an blessing it was to spend a day with the Rardin family, as they celebrated their parent's 50th anniversary!

It was encouraging to see a family that loves their parents dearly and love each other as well.  There were many laughs, hugs, stories told and joyful tears that day, and I enjoyed being there to preserve those memories forever with my camera.

Not all the grandkids could make it, but all six children were there to honor their parents.

They still had the original cake topper from the wedding 50 years ago, and Dawn Rardin made a beautiful (and tasty) cake to put under it. 

This may be my favorite image from the day.  

I know it is not technically perfect, more of a quick snapshot.  For those of you whose grandparents have passed on though, you know that this picture will be invaluable to little Mindy someday.

There is something extra special and meaningful about a wedding ring that has been on a woman's hand for 50 years.  What faithfulness to aspire to!

Lot's of photos were browsed through that day.  You can never get a picture, once the moment is passed. That is what makes photos so invaluable!

50 years and they still love each other.

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs Rardin and thank you Rardin family!
