Kali & Caleb

A few weeks ago, in the cool pines of Munds Park, I got to be a part of a super special day for some friends of mine.  Kali & Caleb were high school seniors during my first year as a senior high leader, and believe it or not, they have been together for 10 years.  Yep…since they were kiddos.  Man I’m starting to feel old 🙂

Anyhow, it was BEAUTIFUL!

The sweet note Caleb wrote to Kali.  Yes…we all read it 🙂

I love jumping pictures!  Check out the groom meditating

Gotta show off my niece & nephew (they were in the wedding):

I LOVE the trees!

Here are the bride & groom’s families performing a dance I choreographed for them especially for their reception.  Photographer by day, choreographer by night 🙂  It was a HIT!

SUCH a beautiful day.  Thanks for wanting me to be a part of it!

Char & Steve

Char & Steve are self-proclaimed hippies – I believe this description is fitting 🙂  These two have the most beautiful hearts and it was such a joy to be a part of their big day.  

They got married in their back yard.  Honest…this is their back yard! 🙂


They were both pretty teary throughout the ceremony:

Across the street to the mountain preserve…

Char was such a sport, climbing up the mountain and in between the cacti in her dress!

We borrowed Pastor Jeff’s bike for a bit 🙂

Congratulations you guys, and thanks for letting me be a part of this very special day!

Baby Emolyn

Baby Emy was due to arrive in early April. In mid February, after a violently sick pregnancy, Emy’s mom (my good friend) Nicole was told she had to have a C-section, and she had to have it right away. All of her family and a bunch of us friends came to the hospital to be with her and her husband Shawn, and when they finally wheeled Nicole away we were so afraid. Nicole was told not to expect to hear any of the normal crying or baby sounds when they brought the baby out because she probably wouldn’t be breathing.

Not too long after, Emy emerged: 2.5 pounds, crying, breathing on her own, and passing ALL of her reflex tests. The moment they wheeled her past the waiting room and our group of 15 literally ran at full speed down the hallway to get a look at her is one of the most joyful and wonderful moments I’ve ever experienced.

Almost 3.5 months and I think 4 pounds later, she is healthy and beautiful! I took these when she was about 2 months old:

Look at those big blue eyes!

I like to imagine what she might be thinking when making this face 🙂

Or this one…

Is it wrong that I love the screaming pictures?

We’re loving watching you grow Emy girl 🙂 You are a miracle!
