hi there y’all!

it’s been forever since I’ve blogged….but no, I haven’t forgotten to write a new post…or been attacked & kidnapped by alians…or died of heat stroke. (; My life has been so, so crazy this summer! I’ve been nannying, working a few nights a week at a local sub shop, and I shot my first “big” wedding (eeeek! SO can’t wait to blog that!) and then started detasseling the next morning. Did that for 12 days straight. (12 days of getting up at 5 am…not your ideal summer. Unless you detassel, of course. (; )

SOOOOOO anyhow. Just thought I’d pop on & say hi, ask how everyone’s summer is going, and let you know to keep checking back. I’ve got some pretty fab posts coming up in the next few weeks & I’m really, reeeeeeaaally excited! (: Stay cool, enjoy august, & I’ll see you all again soon. (;

love always,

(pre-sneak peak of miss naomi! ┬áhaha. if that’s allowed?) (:

Gonna get down on…Saturday!

Prom, prom, prom! Its what consumes the thoughts of most high school juniors and seniors. (: “My” high school had their prom last weekend and I was asked to get some pre-prom photos for some friends. It was so much fun to see everyone all dressed up in their fancy-smancy dresses and tuxes…and even a few masks! The theme was Masquerade, and some of the gals picked up adorable masks while they were down in New Orleans over Spring Break for the Chorus trip.

the rest are up on facebook!

love, love, love,

November! and Mikayla! Can life get better than this?

Oh my goodness. It’s NOVEMBER! Can you believe that? This semester has flown by and I don’t know when or where it went. Partially it might have to do with those 80 degree days in October. (; But I am not complaining in the least. Why? you ask. Because Amelia.loves.the.holidays. LOVES them. And I can start openly listening to my Christmas music once Halloween is past. (I listen to it –in moderation, mind you–starting in September.) And now that Thanksgiving is 3 weeks away, I can start preparing up for the holidays!

I tell all my friends that it’s cause I’m a December baby. But we’ll get into all that later, seeing as my church has a Christmas Bazaar on Saturday and I’m sure I’ll post some photos from that. (: Right now, I have a senor shoot to blog! So, now that I’m back on task…. This is Mikayla. Also known as Kayla, Kayla_jo, and Kay-Kay. Among other names. We’ve been friends for years, and her family is moving to Australia in the next month or two with the Navigators to head up their ministry there. We are all SO excited for them–as much as we’ll miss them, we know that it’s the Lord’s will and He’s got an abundance of opportunities for them there. So, Kayla and I spent a whole lovely afternoon together-eating lunch at Red Lobster and exploring Cedar Falls (including finding two .TWO!. random couches.) Oh yes, and playing with her grandpa’s new “toy.” Deeee-lightful!

Leave her some love!

ps Someone googled this and found my blog.. “ministry photos 2010 “dunk tank” ” how funny! (:

|i have seen so much beauty it could make you cry|

Dearest blog readers,

I am so very sorry that I’ve been so late in posting these. But, alas, I’m a full time college student with other responsibilities and activities as well.

Anyyyway:)…I took Anita’s senior pictures going on two weeks ago. It was chilly and spitting little rain drops or mist, so I wasn’t sure if we should call it off and reschedule. But Anita was such a trooper, and I absolutely love the way they turned out! Shooting on overcast days may just be my favorite thing now! (; Miss Anita is thinking about engineering, a profession that I have a great admiration for, seeing as many of my friends’ parents are engineers (living in a John Deere community you get that a lot!) Anita, dear–enjoy the rest of your senior year! I’m excited to hear more about your college plans when that unfolds!



I am in.loveeee with this bench!

The way I actually met Anita was back in Junior High Orchestra..and she’s still involved with the orchestra up at the high school. You go girl!

Anita loves books, so we ended our session at the UNI library! (: mmmmmmhm.

Sarah | Senior ’11

Gooooooodness gracious. I am so blessed to have gorgeous friends, and Sarah is no exception! We had a blast shooting her senior session- stealing into pastures, hiding out underneath an awesome wooden bridge, and even climbing above a water fountain! (: Ladies and Gents, I give you Sarah- one of my dearest friends, and favorite seniors so far!

ps. I’m messing around with photo sizes–would you rather have them this size or the size done previously?

Miss H [Senior}

oh. my. word. Could this girl rock the camera any more than she did for me? I don’t think so! Miss H is so beautiful, and an amazing violinist to boot. Not even kidding-this girl has talent and drive like nobody else I know. We’ve know each other for the past 10 years or so (I think?) playing violin together, and the last 2 years in high school together. Ready to see some photos of Miss Gorgeous herself? (:

We caught some fun wind action. Mmmm.

Thank you, Miss H, for being fabulous! (:

Until next time,
