So, how is your attitude?

I love reading self-help and inspirational books, I'm not much of a fiction kind of girl.  I'm always looking for ways to invest in myself and hopefully continue to improve as a mom, wife, leader, photographer, friend and so on.  My absolute favorite author is John C. Maxwell, guaranteed everytime I pick up one of his books I am never disappointed.  He is a Christian and a great teacher on Leadership.  Recently I stumbled upon his blog www.johnmaxwellonleadership.com and am again intrigued by his wisdom.

One of my favorite quotes from him is, "People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care."  Attitude is so important in our personal lives and professional lives and it can either make or break us, I truly do believe that.  We can only change ourselves and we wake up every morning and it is our choice to choose our attitude.  So, what is your attitude today?

Take a minute and visit John Maxwell's blog or even better pick up one of his books and start getting inspired!

Wedding Bliss

Yesterday I had the wonderful opportunity to capture the love story of Dawn and Lee.  They couldn't have picked a better location than Belle Maer Marina and the bride couldn't be more beautiful!  There are just so many great photos, but I must say this is my favorite fun shot of the day!

God is Good!

An update on my grandbaby, Bryson.  The doctors were able to take out the ventilator and so far Bryson is breathing good.  He is still on oxygen and a feeding tube, but progressing well for a premie.  Yesterday when I visited my little guy I noticed that some of the swelling has also come down.  God is continuing to watch over His little one and I am so thankful for that.

Mommy and Daddy are doing good.  Mommy has a six week recovery ahead of her with no driving and lifting more than the baby weighs so that's going to be a little tough, but they will be fine.  That is what family is all about, supporting each other.  I am so proud of my son and the man he has become over this last year.  He has really been a good dad, can you tell by his beaming smile with Bryson!

Welcome Baby Bryson!

What a miracle child birth is!  My son and daughter-in-law were expecting their baby on October 15th, well the little stinker decided he didn't want to wait.  Tiffany and Jeremy delivered a beautiful little boy yesterday. He is two months early and is having some difficulties. He is on a ventilator and has fluid in the lungs but they were able to stabilize his sugar levels, amen!  Since mom had gestational diabetes Bryson is actually larger than he should be.  The doctor was explaining to us that anytime a mom has diabetes that the baby will put on weight quick, unfortunately his little organs are not ready yet!  That is where the miracles of doctors come in to help him breathe and become more healthy.

I have faith that God will continue to provide for him and Bryson will be able to go home as soon as he can breathe better and that nasty fluid goes away!  Bryson comes from strong genes and he is a trooper.  Mom and dad are seeing him right now and I'm anxiously awaiting my turn since only one visitor can go in with him. We weren't able to see him yesterday so my little visit with him can't come fast enough. Please continue to pray for Bryson health and for Jeremy and Tiff that they find comfort in knowing that the Lord will provide and protect our little guy.

Take Time To Smell The Flowers!

If you can't tell by now I am a fanatic with flowers.  I just love the beauty, the aroma and how decorative they are in my yard.  My friend, Stacey, is always giving me plants from her house and I love it because that means they are even more special.  When I look at each of them I think of her, and yes I can tell you each one she has given me.

This lovely little guy is a Lavendar Plant (at least I think that is what it is called) and it is really starting to blossom.  If you want a flowering plant that spreads like wildfire this is one for you.

Wedding Day

I had the pleasure of photographing Roxeanne and Ray's wedding, a beautiful couple that had been referred to me via a friend.  Word of mouth is an amazing marketing tool let me tell ya!  Anyways, I saw this idea and wanted to recreate it using Scrabble letters.  The example I saw had only the brides ring and I wanted to use both the bride and groom's ring with the bouquet.

I love how it turned out!  I'll be taking my Scrabble letters with me to future sessions.
