I am so glad I can finally post these pictures! I went along on this bridal shoot with Meggie last month and Sarah and Rusty were finally married yesterday…so I am free to post! All of the pictures were taken at Bleakhouse on Kingston Pike. What a great place to shoot! It is a very beautiful location and Meggie brought along some crazy props: chinese lanterns and bamboo. When we got there Sarah whipped out a pair of cowboy boots and a cowboy hat…I knew it would be an interesting shoot after that. The wild west meets the far east:) LOL  It all worked out and we got some great pictures…check Meggie‘s out on her blog. I know I have said this before but all of the pictures posted here were taken by me even though they have Meggie’s copyright on them (this was her bride). Enjoy and Congratulations to Sarah & Rusty!!

Tilt shift + lens flare = Sweet shot!

I wish that I had a picture of Meggie during this series of shots…she was hovering over the pond with me holding her legs so she didn’t fall in…it was hilarious. She is lucky that I like her and that I didn’t want her hair to bleed. haha!!

Mmmmm, tilt shifty…I love that lens. <<sigh>>

I am 30! Looking back on all of the birthdays before this one really makes me feel that this one is the most special. This year I have so many things to look forward to. This fall my oldest child will start kindergarten, my middle child will start preschool and my youngest child will turn one. I am going to Europe in 3 months with one of the most important people in my life…my mother. This year my husband and best friend will celebrate 7 years of marriage. This winter, I will head back to school to begin my journey to a new profession. And who knows what this year will bring for my photography, which has been so well received by my friends and family.  So while some are afraid of turning 30, I am welcoming it with open arms. Happy Birthday to me:)

Sunday afternoon we went to a  party at the Splash pad for Grayson’s 1st birthday. The splashpad was a little crowded but the weather was perfect for some splashing fun. What I mean by perfect is HOT. LOL Here are a few pictures of the partygoers:)

How cute is this guy?!

All tuckered out:)

Birthday kisses from mom!

Doing a little Kung Fu on a Sunday afternoon…ok not really. (If it looks like you are doing Kung Fu or anything that resembles Kung Fu, chances are the picture will appear on my blog. LOL)

Jaimes and the giant apple!

Happy Birthday sweet boy!

This weekend I took the kids to the Fruit & Berry Patch to pick blueberries, peaches and plums. The kids had a great time, even though it was a million degrees outside.  I think Cade had the most fun and he doesn’t even eat fruit:( I was trying to find something fun to do with the kids for an hour or so while John was gone but we ended up staying for 3 hours! I also got stung while  picking plums…it was worth it though…they are good:) I have a TON of pictures from this weekend…so stayed tuned!

My little peach pickers!

The happiest peach picker in the patch. Say that fast three times.

My little blueberry smuggler…shhhh don’t tell anyone;)

After 3 hours delerium started to set in, so we decided to go home:)

We were not sure how Reece would react but he LOVED it!
