21 Day Fast

Starting tomorrow I will be participating in a 21 day church wide fast. I have chosen to fast from the internet. Yikes! I will be using this time to really get into God's word. It will be a struggle to not post new blogs or check out what's going on with everyone else. But God will give me the strength to substain and I pray that He will be glorified.

I am ready to "suffer" and give up the pleasures of this world to see what God has in store for me. Please don't abandon my blog completely. I will be back in three weeks! God Bless.

A sad day: Let's talk lenses!

Today I had to say goodbye to the Nikon 17-55mm 2.8 that I rented. I must say that I loved shooting with it and hope to one day buy it. Do any of you out there own this lens? I would love to hear your opinions on it or any other great lenses. I just own the lens that came with my Nikon D70s. I am looking to purchase a better quality all purpose lens.

For you cannon owners, what is your favorite lens?

Love to hear your thoughts!

Back from vacation

Andy and I just recently got home from a 4 day cruise to Cozumel, Mexico. We had a nice time just being together. I have pictures that I will post soon. Have you seen the ocean in Cozumel? Wow! It is unreal how clear and blue it is.

Jay + Julie

Here is a preview from a session I did yesterday of my dear friends Jay and Julie. I met them almost two years ago when we were stationed in Corpus Christi together. We have been hopping bases together since then. It is a blessing to be here in Abilene together. I will be sad when the Air Force moves us in different directions.
More to come:)

Creative Shoot with Lauren Zaffos

Meet Rebecca. Lauren and I spend Friday night trying to capture her beauty. I only hope my images will do her justice. Despite the cold weather we had a great time with this shoot. I so much enjoy working with Lauren any chance I get. She inspires me.

I am experiencing technical difficulties with my photos. I will post more images soon.

Weekend Get Away

So I know it has been forever since I last posted and I have so much to share with you all. I have been busy doing nothing, just spending time with my husband who recently got back for deployment. The past couple weeks have been amazing!

Last weekend Andy and I took a trip to this adorable German town call Fredricksburg. We stayed in our own private cottage/bed and breakfast, which was very charming and romantic. During the day we went shopping downtown and ofcourse made stops for some photo ops. We spent one evening at a winery and the next day outdoors at Enchanted Rock(pictures to come). It was so great to be able to steal a weekend away with the love of my life.

The living room

The tub was massive.
This picture does not do it justice.

I love this bathroom.

Out and about downtown

Andy lost in all the antiques!

I was trying so hard to capture my reflection. Can you see me?

The next few shots are me trying to be creative with cool
locations around the area.

The tomb is empty !
