Can't wait!

Katie and I are heading to Omaha in a few minutes!  We are so excited to see Matthew and Melinda and Asher!!!
I promise to take lots of pictures of that beautiful boy.
And some of Asher too.


I did a mini session today, in my garage and kitchen of the girl next door.

And then I made (am making) chicken spaghetti to take with me for dinner tonight.

I took a few shots of Katie first.


I love when she curls her hair!

I wish you all a great, warm, sunny weekend!
Don't are still here....
you are called to be here...

Be strong and courageous.
You can do it!

Love you,

  18. Is it time for the new baby to be born? Saying prayers for everyone.

    Have a safe and wonderful weekend.

    P.S. I tried to find you on FB and all I could find was your photography page. I wanted to show you a picture of my adorable granddaughter. :)

    Just getting here, but I wanted to say you will all be in our prayers. Have fun and take lots of photographs please. Katie your hair looks lovely as do you. Vera would tell you that you have a "bobber pin" in your hair, her words for bobby pin. love and prayers, jep

  20. Oh, have a wonderful time!!
    We purchased the curlers you recommended and they are fantastic! Katie's hair always looks great, and my daughter would want to know how she gets the waves instead of straight-up curls (ha...what a funny way for me to describe curls...straight-up. :) ).

  21. I love the gladness that radiates here.

  22. Katie ... you are a BEAUTY and that beauty comes from within ... you are a blessing from God, sweetie! Travel safe and looking forward to pictures of the rest of the family (especially the newbie) ... LOL Linda

  23. Have a very good time in family, Donna; And please, give us some news from Melinda Sue and her belly :)

  24. No newbie for at least a week.

  26. If I could pick a studio to shoot in for one day, do you know what I would pick?
    I would pick YOUR GARAGE studio. Mostly because you would be close to it and spending time with you? Well, that would be a dream come true.
    I am glad you got to shoot. I know you love it so.
