When my babies were babies…

…I loved it when they…

…would smile during their happy dreams!

This is Landon…awake, and adorable!

Not to be outdone in the adorable category…here is big brother Dylan!

He is…you guessed it…three years old!

A few family portraits…

…and one more of new addition…2 week old Landon!

Your b&W are stunning!

I am sitting at my desk working…

…and heard a news report just now on the radio. The US cargo ship Maersk Alabama has just arrived at its destination in Kenya, but without it’s captain, Richard Phillips, who is being held hostage by pirates. The reporter was describing that the crew were in the port but still on the ship. In response to a question about captain Richard Phillips shouted up by someone on the shore, one of the crew shouted “THAT MAN SAVED OUR LIVES!!”

What overwhelming gratitude this crew must feel!

I am always humbled and inspired by stories of people who put themselves at grave risk for the survival of others. Would I be courageous enough to do the same in a similar situation?

This weekend I, along with Christians worldwide, am remembering and celebrating Jesus Christ’s ultimate sacrifice for mankind. I want to take a moment and say with gratitude and joy: “THAT MAN (Jesus Christ) SAVED MY LIFE!!!!”

As the years go on, I am increasingly amazed and thankful about this, realizing more and more that I am so very far from deserving such rescuing.

For a while, I have been meaning to mention a blog Peace Within Reach that is authored by my brother in law Fred. Fred has a heart for serving struggling people in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. He is ministry director at Center of Hope there. In order to reach anyone else who may be seeking peace in their lives, he has started this blog recently. I encourage you to click on the link and check it out if you feel so led.

Wishing you a blessed and joyful Easter…

These are fabulous! What a precious child. The first and second are my favorite. Pure uninhibited joy captured on film. Adorable outfit as well!

Nickie and Dan…and Buddy!

I recently had the enjoyable job of shooting some engagement pictures for Nickie and Dan, whose wedding I get to photograph on June 13. Dan’s lab Buddy came along just for fun!

In order to get Buddy to look at me, I was holding his favorite toy, a big red rubber ball type thing. ๐Ÿ™‚ This was yet another one of the many times that I am thankful one can only see who was in FRONT of the lens, and not crazy ME, in this case waving a red ball thing and yelling “buddy…….buuuuuuuddy……BUDDY!” while balancing my camera BEHIND the lens!

My favorite image from the session:

Thanks for the great session, Nickie and Dan!
