Beautiful Gabriele. Vilnius

 

 

I was so happy to pick up my camera last night to photograph beautiful Gabriele who happens to be my neighbor.  It was a gorgeous cool summer evening and it was so easy to photograph this young lady. Gabriele, you are a PRO!

Christian and Ashley


It was such a blessing to attend two weddings when we visited the States last April. The fact that they were family members’ weddings made it even more special. Yes, we were super excited and overwhelmed after the first ceremony on Saturday but then we woke up and did it all over again on Sunday! Thank you Jill for being only 11, who knows what would happen if you were older and dating. So, here’s a quick preview of Chris and Ashley’s special day! I love how each wedding had a different look, feel to it. I think that happens when a photographer tries to tell a story, to document what’s happening instead of showing up with a list of four hundred thirty five poses (and believe me I LOVE posing people, I guess I wouldn’t want to become a director). Congrats to our newlyweds, we love and miss you guys! The slideshow is coming up in the next post shortly.

Spencer and Ariel’s Wedding

 

Always a privilege to photograph a wedding. What makes it even more special is photographing a wedding of a family member. It was a bit hard to do so through fighting tears in my eyes . It was a truly special day! Spence, I am so proud of you! It’s been awesome to see you grow and mature and now we will continue supporting you on this new journey in your life. Hope you enjoy the photographs.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you guys ( I suspect there are at least whopping 7 of you reading my blog!) It’s not about the numbers, it’s about me trying to remember my life better, right? That’s what I keep telling myself.

We have had a wonderful Christmas time here in Vilnius. Here are just a few photos to document what was going on.

The girls had a great time decorating the tree, then just staring at it

then we had a Christmas Eve party with some of our friends

a certain boy tried to impress girls,”look, what I can do!”

then came  Christmas morning

she was much happier when she opened her gift… a flashlight, yay, a flashlight! Gosh, my kids are easy!

polithere are no pictures of Mila opening her gifts because she didn’t get any… “she won’t remember it anyways”, the words of my husband

then the baby and I went for a walk. It was a gorgeous sunny morning

On a serious note we are very grateful for a lot God had blessed us with in 2013 including our second daughter Mila, for the privilege of ministering in a foreign country of Lithuania and for  the Greatest Gift of all! Happy Birthday, Jesus!

 

 

Family Session

I can’t believe it’s been over 9 months since we moved to Vilnius. It’s been a long winter but the summer is here and I am excited to document our life and the lives of our friends more often. I am planning on getting back to blogging the sessions I work on and the fun stuff we do as a family. So be sure to check back soon. We are excited to share our life journey with you!
