*R* FAMILY

Filed under: family,just because,kiddos,lifestyle,portraits,spring — admin at 10:59 am on Tuesday, April 10, 2018

I met my friend Erica through the playgroup at our local YMCA! I invited her to walk with us in the summer – and we grew close!

She happens to make DELICIOUS cakes! Especially delicious dairy-free cakes!!

I highly recommend contacting her if you need a cake for ANY occasion!

We had a tricky February and March – it snowed one day and melted the next. JUST LIKE APRIL!!

We had a random beautiful day and Erica asked if we could squeeze in some pictures!

She’s a shy one – even though I’ve known her for a couple of years!

She did manage to give me a smile – or two – EVEN THREE!!

I LOVE THAT ONE!!

BLACK & WHITE – MY FAVORITE!!

Erica & Ryan – thanks for trekking around your property with me!

Erica – I am so thankful that we are friends!!

APRIL WINNERS & MAY CONTEST

Filed under: contest,just because,spring — admin at 3:34 pm on Monday, May 2, 2011

I told you about this family at the end of March -

In October of 2009 I photographed Carl & Pam’s wedding – a BEAUTIFUL wedding with an amazing couple! In October of 2010 they were blessed with a baby girl – Piper! At almost a month old – Piper was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. She is doing remarkably well and has a wonderful support system! On May 21st – Pam and Carl will be participating in a CF walk with Piper’s Posse! You can read more about Piper’s story – here!

I would love to be there for Pam & Carl and their sweet baby girl – but since I cannot – I will be donating 10% of my revenue for the month of April to Piper’s Posse!

PLEASE click on the link above and give what you can to help find a cure! I also encourage you to check out Confessions of a CF Husband. When Pam first asked me to pray for Piper and her tests – I directed her to this website – which helped me understand CF. I don’t know how I came upon his blog – but have been following their story since their little girl was born!

THANKS TO MY APRIL CLIENTS – I was able to give $161 to Piper’s Posse!!!
