John and Aprillee

When I started taking pictures I told my friends I would never do a wedding. I so admire wedding photographers. But I think that taking pictures of a wedding is such a big responsibility that I would be afraid to mess up and I know that I wouldn't get a do over. But here is what happened. This very cute couple was getting married and for reasons of their own they didn't want a big party or celebration or lots of guests. And they didn't have a photographer. I couldn't change their minds about the party :) but at least I could take some pictures and save the memories of such an amazing time of their lives. John and Aprillee are adorable and I wish a whole life of happiness and blessings to them. Here are some of the pictures. By the way, the handsome pastor officiating the wedding is my husband. I am so proud of him.

With such elegance She took to the stage Graceful Such control she displayed Classical style and dramatic design Her denial of gravity So divine Air turn, vertical jumps Cross leaps Exuberant display of foot-beats Perfection... Incarnated in dance Her loyal audience Entranced... While she The ballerina Danced~ This one session was so hard to pick the best pictures to put in here!!! Meghan is my best friend's daughter and as I was taking the pictures I couldn't stop thinking she is sooooo beautiful! Ok, I might even have shouted that once and scared some people around me :) But she is and she is so graceful! She takes dancing very seriously and even that she still have the innocence of a child she already have the pose of a prima ballerina. Sorry for the amount of pictures but I really had a hard time choosing. Here it is, one of my favorite little girls, Meghan.

Little Aaron

Not a lot of work this week. I am trying to cope with the idea that my kids don't have to go to school for almost 3 months and I need to figure out what to do to keep them busy. But on Thursday I took some pictures of a very special little boy. A few months ago I had a session with him and his twin sister Paige and it was a blessing. Two very active kids that had me jumping and running and crawling to get a picture but it end up being some of the cutest photos I've ever done. Aaron is a little warrior. The twins were born prematurely and almost a year ago they found out that Aaron had Pulmonary Vein Stenosis. I can't really explain here what that really means but he had to have open heart surgery. The whole family has been through a lot, but Aaron's amazing mom and dad never give up. And now, a year later Aaron is, on his mom's own words "our very own Superman". I love you Silva family and I will never give up on my prayers for you.
