Tracy, Addison, and Jack!

This family's been on my blog before, but that was back when Jack was still a bun in the oven!  I did get to post a picture of Jack at about 3 months old, but due to a rush on the photos, they didn't quite make it to the blog!  

So, my readers, it is my pleasure to introduce to you, now 9 months old, Jack!  

Yeah, he's pretty much adorable. 

Addison was a sweetheart as always, and I just loved spending the evening with this beautiful family!  

 Oh, and by the way - Addison just turned 3!!  Mom bought her balloons to use during the photo shoot to celebrate :)

 Too much fun!  I can't wait to take more for this family.  I hope Ryan (Dad) feels better soon!

Greg & Holly :: Married!

Holly and Greg met just before the school year started at Calvary Chapel Bible College in California.  She remembers seeing him as they crossed the street and thinking "Watch!  I'll end up with that guy!"  Well, Greg must have been thinking the same thing, because it wasn't long before they started dating!  Both knew they had met the one, and a month after they had both headed home from school, Greg flew out to meet her.  They hadn't even left the airport before he popped the question!  And . . . she said yes :)

It was beautiful seeing members of Calvary Chapel Joplin, my old church, come together and make this beautiful wedding happen!  We had a gorgeous day and a heartfelt ceremony, officiated by Greg's own father, the pastor of CCJ!  I was honored to document the moments and the details.

Holly looked so classy and stunning.


Greg's ring wouldn't quite fit!  

I love his Marilyn Monroe-esque series of Holly twirling her dress!  

 Congratulations, Greg and Holly!  I pray for the best of marriages for the two of you!  May you keep smiling this big every time you stop to think about each other!  Thank you again for allowing me to be there to preserve these memories for you!
