Bittersweet Goodbye

So fun to get together and celebrate a friend and the new journey she is taking. But to steal her own words its "bittersweet" too.  SO glad I took my camera to take a few shots!! Which is kinda funny because MY definition of a few and yours may be very different!  Typically when I shoot an event I shoot well over 100 and its not uncommon to have over 300!! Goodness that ends up being a lot to go through!  I actually did well and only took about 60.  But I loved capturing memories for her to remember from this night. I love how these photos turned out.  My favorite is one where the focus is on the martini glass and an awsome clutch purse I was eyeing and one of my most beautiful friends is just out of focus in the background. Love it!!   Good Luck Sweet Friend!! May you be richly blessed in your new endeavor.   I know we will all miss you!

Tiny Mr "J"

I was so excited and honored to photograph this precious newborn!  Not only did I know his grandma,  who was a great friend through out nursing school,  I had known his grandmothers,  twin sister for years!! She was my discipleship leader through out high school and I even sang in her wedding! ALSO,  his momma was MY daughters 1st babysitter!! Y'all following me on all these connections??? ;) It was a fantastic shoot! Kudos to his mom and Nana for keeping up with me and letting me try all sorts of things with this boy!! An added bonus...his big brother and big cousin came along for the fun and I put my camera to work with those "big" boys too!!
