"R" Family Photos

Just last week I had the pleasure of taking family pictures for our long time First Steps Physical Therapist. She was first Joe's PT and now she is Christine's. We have grown to love her like family (heck, I see her more often than I see most of my friends and family). Every Christmas that we've known her I offer to take their family pictures and she always made excuses why she didn't want her picture taken (not good excuses either!)... she said they haven't had a family picture taken since her kids were in preschool! Now they're hardly kids at all. But she finally took me up on my offer! What a beautiful fall day it was and her family is just delightful!

Been a long time coming!

Adoptive/Foster Parent Special

Over the past couple of years I have been able to see more and more people in my life both adopting and fostering. I have been blessed to see parts of that process. There is so much that goes into it that I was unaware of. I am ever impressed with the amount of patience and love that these everyday people possess to go through all these channels and jump through these hoops to bring these babies and children back and welcome them into their homes and families. God is using them in a huge way!
So, to hopefully bless these families I am offering an adoption/fostering special of $25 for a 30-45min minute session and disc for up to 5 people ($10 per person after that). Please contact me to schedule your session.
Thank you for the blessing you are to these children and to those around you who see your example of how God welcomes us into His heavenly family. God bless you!

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba, Father." - Romans 8:14-16

But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. - Galatians 4:4-6

You are the helper of the fatherless. LORD, You have heard the desire of the humble; You will prepare their heart; You will cause Your ear to hear, To do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed, That the man of the earth may oppress no more. - Psalms 10:14,17-18

Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you. - James 1:27

Watching families grow...

One of my favorite things about doing photography is watching families grow through pictures. I have taken pictures for my friends since before their first kiddo was born. I've watched them grow up and now little brother is getting to be bigger than big sister! And as you can tell, my photography equipment and skills have also grown some over the years thank goodness!
