Erin and I headed out at 7:30am this morning for our fun shoot! We had SO much fun that we didn't get finished until 11:30am! We initially went to Main Street in Tomball...and found ourselves some treasures. We spotted a train that we thought would be fun and all of a sudden all of these beautiful, old, restored cars...and a horse drawn carriage...rolled into our vicinity! Apparently, Tomball was having their Christmas parade today! God is SO good...I am continually in awe of Him. After our run in with the parade, Erin and I headed down some allies, found a fun antique shop, and eventually my little car found a Starbucks to help refuel our tired bodies. The last part of the morning was spent on a beautiful trail near Christopher and my apartment. I had such a wonderful time with Erin. Not only did we have fun on the shoot, but we became closer sisters in Christ. Erin...you are such a beautiful young woman and I am blessed to know you!
I was blessed to be able to take Zach's senior pictures yesterday! Christopher and his mom, Jean, came with us. We went into downtown Houston to City Green and the Dakota lofts. While we were taking pictures at the lofts, we met an amazing photographer, Jessica Grieves, of Ecor Rouge Photography. She graciously let us use her loft space (which had fabulous lighting and exposed brick walls). Jessica also gave me some lighting advice and let me know when some seminars and workshops were going to be. The Lord is SO good! Thank you Jessica! We could not have asked for a more beautiful day! It was a lot of fun! Here are some pictures that Christopher and I were able to work on last night...Enjoy!
To praise God during all the valleys that life might bring our way...to celebrate every moment...to see joy in every gift that God blesses you with...to pray knowing that God hears every note...to trust Him with every part of your being...
Those were just a few of the thoughts that came to mind when I watched this video that my friend had shared with me. The family's faith in this video is unwavering and simply beautiful.
A couple weeks ago, our fun-loving Sunday School friends got together for a "Costume & Game Night." Christopher and I are incredibly blessed to have such an amazing and strong circle of friends. Their faithfulness to the Lord is unwavering. I don't know what we would do without them. As you can see from the following pictures, fellowship together has no definition...and is always a joy!
Many of my friends are mothers...so I decided to embrace the beauty of pregnancy for my costume! Note the mascara running down my face!
