Make a Joyful Noise

"Oh come, let us sing to the LORD; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods." (Psalm 95: 1-3)

Rings 'N Roses

My sweet fiance had bought me some beautiful pink roses last week!! They made my room so bright and happy! I had always wanted to take a picture of a ring in a rose, so I decided to photograph my beautiful engagement ring in one of the beautiful roses Ben had bought for me!

A Self Portrait

With some free time on my hands last week, and a desire to take some pictures, I decided to take some self portraits! It was a lot of fun, and I love how this one came out!

Portraits::The Stockton Family

I've enjoyed being able to photograph Sloane throughout her first year of life, and now I had the opportunity to photograph her whole family this past Saturday! It was a lot of fun until 4 trains went by in like 20 minutes and scared Sloane's older brother, Wyatt. Oh well. I'm glad that we're able to get a few good ones of him by himself and some family shots before he got scared!

Football Game

I'm only two photo projects away from completing my NYIP Professional Photography Course! For one of my projects, I was told to take a sports picture, so I went to Matt's (Ben's brother) high school football game this afternoon.

This project really challenged me! (I couldn't get as close as I would have liked to, and my zoom lens didn't zoom in as much as I would have liked.) It was definitely out of my comfort zone, but it was a neat experience! This project showed me that being a sports photographer requires you to always be ready, because you never know when a good photography moments will pop up!

I really like I how timed this photograph perfectly to get the cheerleader doing a perfect split in the air!

Here's a more cropped version. I couldn't decide which version I liked better!

Sloane::9 Months

Well, I must say that God really helped me and showed Himself strong when I shot Sloane's 9 month pictures! I did get very much sleep the night before due to being at a Falcons Game, and when I don't get enough sleep, I become very grumpy. :) Then, the wagon I went to pick up and borrow from a friend, hadn't been cleaned out. There was dirt, spider webs, and junk all in it! I was so frustrated, that I was just about to walk away and leave it. However, my sweet fiance, Ben, had come with me to assit with these photo shoot, and so he willing went and cleaned the wagon up for me. Finally, I'm driving along, almost at my destination, and realize that I had forgotten my reflector at home. Oh, I was so upset and mad about that! I didn't even want to do this photo shoot anymore, and I contemplated calling Sloane's mom and telling her that we'd just have to reschedule. Instead, I just decided to stick it out, all the while reminding myself that this was going to be the worst photo shoot ever!

Despite the fact that nothing was going well that morning and all my complaining, God had other plans. He allowed the weather to cooperate, so that it wasn't as bright and sunny as it could have been. He gave me much grace, and allowed Sloane's pictures to be the best pictures I think I've every taken up to this point!! God had to get me to end of myself in order to show Himself strong

Baby Titus

I had the privilege of photographing Ben's newest nephew yesterday morning! Baby Titus was born on August 5, 2011, and he is such a sweet, little baby!

A big thank you to his mommy for letting me come over and interrupt his nap time to take some pictures!

Aww! I love how he's smiling while he's sleeping in this picture!

This one is another one of my favorites! I like how the camera focused on his precious little hands!

Haha! Notice how he's making sure that pacifier stays in his mouth! :)

I think that this is my favorite picture from the whole shoot! I love photographing precious, little baby feet!
