Christmas and babies just seem to go together....
This is the nicest guy you could meet...and it was really difficult to get a "serious" look out of him. He is a Senior guy who loves the sport of fighting. Maybe two older brothers have something to do with that?
This Senior photo shoot was so much fun! In locating some of the unique areas of Wichita (which you don't really see because I was in love with her closeups!) we ran into an Rapper from Ireland who just happened to pose with her (who can tell a "mom" no?). Kristen, you are more beautiful than you know!
John's musical ability with a few sticks is really amazing. He's been playing at NewSpring Church for so many years, I can't remember a worship service without him. He likes to call the drum cage his "office" and we enjoy watching him play as much as listening. He has a business, Phatman Drums, and shares his passion for music through drumming. He made a trip to Guatemala last year to teach Pastoral students a class on music as the Kekchi do love a good beat! If you are interested in lessons, John has a private studio and he would be blessed to share his talent.
Awww, this little girl has such personality. She's timid yet adventurous, loves to be center-stage but gets stage-fright and can be so serious yet light up the world with her smile. While her Daddy was deployed to Korea, she and Jill lived with us for a year so basically we claimed her. Having her move to Virginia and knowing the time spent with her is going to take MUCH more planning than it has, is going to be a huge adjustment. Of course, Larry cried and I just try to take it in stride. I know it's doable since our other grandchildren are in Guatemala! 5 States away isn't too bad in comparison. Lenny Grace...we LOVE YOU SO MUCH!
A chunky, lovable boy who looks a lot like his sister whom he adores. This is my Grand-boy, Dean Alan. I can't really say Grandbaby because as you can see he's growing very fast! One day soon, he will be drive that tractor like he is the boss instead of just making the sounds. He's 7 months old and waiting for his teeth to come in so he can eat like a farmer!
This baby was a gift from God! Sweet and perfect in every way.Elsie's dad plays the drums at NewSpring Church. He turns those sticks into a flurry of motion that is very artistic. Elsie's mom teaches, is patient and kind, and loves to build things. Ask her about her Rabbit Home (not a hutch but a home). Elsie came a wee bit early into the world, perfect and tiny and her big sister Evie is in love! Evie is protective and adoring...just like big sister's are suppose to be!
I think everyone loves the summer evenings. There is just something about having FOUR extra hours of sunlight that makes the summer more relaxed and fun. (Technically that isn't correct but it feels right!) I got a chance to photograph these little beauties recently...sweet and perfect in every way...
I believe our prime stage of life is the 40+ age group. Old enough to be wise and live life accordingly! The love we feel for others deepen into something closer to what God intended in the first place. Partnership, tenderness, respect and loyalty. I was privileged to be the one to capture their love for each other.
