Let me start by saying, from the first moment I met these two, their kindness and love for each other could be easily seen.  I loved just being able to spend time with them, let alone capture their special day!  There is such a neat heritage too with Zach and the military.  His grandfather, father, and now him have all been in the military.  Zach is leaving almost immediately and will be an engineer in the Marines.  The love between these two is evident to all and I was so honored to get to be a part of this day.

So the ugly truth is I am not great a blogging!  Ugh, I hate that about myself…with 4 little kids being homeschooled and around the house all day, I get photos posted to Facebook and then am quickly distracted by somebody :-)  So while my kids are on a little visit to the grandparents, I am grabbing some time to catch up this blog and edit, edit, edit! That being said, here we go!

J* The Fix: In Review

March 18th, 2012

So…this last week…dare I say it…I went to my FIRST photography conference!  After shooting for almost 4 years, I took the plunge.  I am going to be honest and say, there are lots of reasons I have not attended any others whether it was the cost or I wasn’t certain I would get anything worth […]

So…this last week…dare I say it…I went to my FIRST photography conference!  After shooting for almost 4 years, I took the plunge.  I am going to be honest and say, there are lots of reasons I have not attended any others whether it was the cost or I wasn’t certain I would get anything worth while out of them to…here’s the honesty part…my feeling of inadequacy among other photographers.  However, a dear dear friend of mine talked me into this one and I was NOT disappointed!  It was truly a worthwhile venture and I came away feeling like I had a renewed confidence and actual applicable things I could do to better my business.  I am excited for this upcoming year and applying all the new ideas that came from being inspired by Jasmine.  So here’s a few photos from our day in Chi-town!

The bus for Jasmine and the crew…I found it cool that they had wrapped scripture all the way around it.

Just showing off the bus…silliness.

My dear friend Ashley who is one of the most fabulous human beings I know.  LOVE this girl! :-)

Jasmine doing a little mingling beforehand…and can I just say I adore this girl’s bright peach colored pants!

Preaching it to the crowd :-)  Adore her passion and hopefully absorbed some of her zeal!

A little Q and A.

After this conference, I can say that I would definitely go and hear her again…such a great day!

It was time for 3 year photos for Luke and 6 month photos for Colin and I knew I was in for some fun. Luke and his little 3 year old self made me laugh through the whole shoot. Colin has grown so much since our last shoot and I love being able to capture these special moments together. I can’t wait for what Luke has in store for our next shoot because I have high expectations since he turned into batman while I was at his house for this shoot :-)

End of Year…all in one post.

Well, to explain the lapse in blog posts; I have to go back to August. We began homeschooling here at the Gray house and that consisted of two 1st graders and a kindergartner with a 3 year old hanging around taking it all in and that is where my blogging days began to dwindle :-) I could manage to update my facebook business page, but just couldn’t squeeze in those blog posts. I am so very thankful for all of the business God sent my way and for all the new and old families and couples that I was honored to work with, but between shoots, editing, being a teacher, mom and wife, my blog took a hit. So I decided that while I was nursing a cold and my husband was home, I would squeeze in a blog that encompassed the end of 2011. I loved every minute of my photography sessions and have already had some fantastic sessions this new year. A huge THANK YOU to all my old clients and I am so looking forward to meeting all the new clients and embarking on the wedding scene! Lots of love to all of you and now I will get on to the photos…
