11 months!

I had a dream last night that I accidentally deleted my entire blog! All of my posts were gone. I was panicked and woke up in quite a state of fear, so I figured it was a sign I needed to update! I still have so many seniors, babies, weddings that I haven't had a chance to share. Even the incredible trash the dress session! For most business (photographers included) things slow down in January. Time to get the taxes done, work on branding and websites, reexamine your policies. Well, I haven't had time to do ANY of that yet! I am beyond grateful and humbled that I am too busy, but will be taking 10 days off towards the end of March, so please plan accordingly!

And since I couldn't post without pictures, here are a few of Miss Ryleigh! She is 11 months old now and I cannot believe it! She is walking everywhere, loves to say dada and mama, says thank you and your welcome (in her own version of slang of course!) and has said Mady a few time! She brings out entire family so much joy it is hard to put into words! So here she is, helping me test out a new backdrop for a very special session for Miss Ashley's family on Friday. If you haven't checked out Ashley's story, please head on over there. She is battling cancer at the age of 23 with more grace, faith, and strength than anyone I know. Leave her a note in the guestbook and let her know you visited her site! Her newest journal entries are written by her family, but if you go back a couple of months you can read just how wonderful she is in her own words.
