Photo Contest!

I L.O.V.E. Photo Contests.
Especially when the theme is "Portraits"!!!

Polka Dot over at (life is too short not to) wear red shoes is hosting her own portrait photo contest.

Since two pictures were allowed, I chose the maximum. ;)

One of my favorite pictures of Ruth from our session together.  She's so classy and I love her hat and shawl!

Another of my favorite portrait pictures from one of my sessions is of Abby Sunderland! I love Abby, she's so cheerful, happy, and exciting. This picture makes me smile and laugh. :)

365 Challenge: Days 108-114

He is Risen!!!

I was so caught up in the Easter celebration that I forgot to post my 365 Challenge!

So here are Days 108-114! I spent a lot of time this week taking pictures of flowers - mainly roses. I love springtime!

A rose by any other name will still smell as sweet...

On our way to the fantastic Soiree!

*sniff... it was over way too soon

Good Friday service at my church

More roses... :)

He is Risen!

I hope your Easter celebration was absolutely amazing as well!

~Spring Soiree~

The most elegant, sophisticated, and down-right fun night of the year!

The ladies were all in gorgeous dresses, the men in smart tuxedos. Excitement was humming in the air, the brightly decorated masks shimmered and shined, and the parents looked on with little exclamations of, "Oh! They're all grown up!"

It truly was an amazing night.

Before the "big event", we stopped by a little park to take some pictures! Thank you Mom for taking so many of the lovely pictures!

Andy, Rebekah, Me, and Nathanael

As we go on, we remember

All the times we had together

And as our lives change, from whatever

We will still be Friends Forever....

Class of 2011 Blessing Excerpt
Oh Lord, may our Senior Class of 2011 come to know Your wisdom and instruction.
May they discern the sayings of understanding.
May they receive the instruction in wise behavior, righteousness, justice, and equity.
May You Lord give them prudence, knowledge, and discretion.
May they truly listen and increase in learning, always seeking counsel.
May they come to understand the greatest of all Your instructions, to love and value You with all their heart.
Then will they begin to know knowledge.

I love all of you guys! ♥

Katherine's Sweet Sixteen

A trip to the Getty.

But it wasn't for a field trip or photo session, but rather to celebrate  Katherine's 16th birthday.  We had a BLAST, and here's some pictures to prove it! :) 

In the tram

Once we got there, we split into two groups of four. We had a list of artwork or statues we needed to find and/or act out, and we got right to work!

Acting out this picture

McKenna - and her Caspian Horn

Till We Have Faces

Erika being graceful and blithe

We got a little tired....

A Mellon Shot

My Team

I tried to strike a "Cool Pose", but... ended up laughing too hard. :P

 The Getty has some awesome architecture too!


We met up again with the rest of the party

See Jonathan?

Do you still see him?

After Lunch, we rolled down a hill...

Jumped in the air...

 And learned how to wiggle our fingers! :)

Happy Birthday Katherine!!!
