~What a crazy day! I WON shop credit for Janey Mac~

I truly never win anything but I have been a huge blog hopper lately.  I don't know if that is what you call it but I have enjoyed so much looking at blogs and commenting.  Ashley LaRue with Lemon and Lavender who designed my logo and blog did a give away for Janey Mac.

Please check out both of these wonderful lady's blogs! 
Thank you so much to Ashley and Janey Mac!

~I WON the cutest headband...I am SO excited~

I was on one of my favorite blogs Mandipidy and I saw that they were giving away this precious headband and I woke up thismorning to an email that I won it.

I never win anything.  It is so exciting.  The headband is adorable.  The headband was made by Carly who does the sweetest blog, Mason's Roost.  Check out both of these blogs if you can.  Both are super fun and I love how every blogger has a story.  Here is the beautiful headband:

  Thank you again both Mandipidy for doing the giveaway and thank you to Carly with Mason's Roost for putting the headband in the giveaway.  I LOVE IT!  Thank you!

Amarillo Photographer / The Denbow Family

I first met the Denbow Family a few years ago when I did a photo shoot for them.  Bri and I hit it off and became super good friends very fast.  She bought a car from Matthew (whom I didn't know at the time)

 and she wanted to get us together because she thought he was a great guy from what she knew from him from buying her car.  To make a long story short, we went on a blind date and I ended up marrying

him a year later.  It was so amazing how God worked in this.  Now we are all friends and her girls call me Aunt Heather.  I love them all SO much!

Thank you Bri, Chris, Lexi and Madi for blessing me by letting me do this shoot for you.
Love you guys tons!

Amarillo Photographer / The Watson Family

I first met Megan and Ryan last year when ice hockey was going on.  I was engaged to Matthew at the time and Megan, the girls and me sat together talking while we were supposed to be watching the boys.

We hit it off real quick.  And I love these girls too!  PRECIOUS!
I had the honor of doing a fall mini shoot for this amazing family last year.  They are just so much

fun and I look forward to many more fun shoots with them.
Thank you Watson family for blessing me by letting me capture some special moments.

Love you guys!

~A Photo From Valentines Day~

Valentines Day was so special this year.  Valentines in the past have usually been downers but this year, 
I am married to the most amazing man who God brought to me.  Did I ever dream I would get
married at 32 years old.  Absolutely not.  I thought I would be single for the rest of my life by then.  Well, I was wrong.  October 15, 2010, I married my prince charming.  
I wanted to do something so special this year for him.  I am not a cook or a baker.  He is an amazing cook.  I did throw together Mexican tacos the other night but I wanted to bake cupcakes from scratch. 

I started looking on the internet (remember, I know little about baking) 
and I kept finding recipes that were amazing but I thought you had to have a mixer.  I asked for one
for our wedding but I want the Kitchenaid Mixer so it didn't happen.  (Maybe someday).
What I didn't know was that I could have done it anyway, just not as easy with my handheld mixer.

So, I went to the store and bought a mix and used Betty Crocker icing and little candy hearts.  Did it matter to him that they were from the box?  NO!  The thing that mattered was that we spent time together that night.  I love Matthew!  He truly is a gift from God!

P.S.  The cupcakes WERE fun to eat though!

Happy Monday!!!!!!!!

 Helping me improve my business any way he can, my sweet hubby is going to help me buy a lens.  I have been trying to figure out which lens get.  I think we are going to end up buying this one and I am SO excited!  I have heard so many great things about it and my lens now is a Sigma but I have heard that Canon's are well worth the money.  It should be very very soon when we are able to buy it.  I can't wait but I truly do have the best husband ever.  Lens/No lens...Just having him makes me the happiest person in the world!

What do you think?

Amarillo Photographer / Mr. "B"

Catching up...

These were taken a while back. They are Mr. "B"s 3 month photos.  I love these kids.  Their mom is my best friend.  I was there when Mr. "B" was born.  I am going to do his 9 month shoot next month.  Miss "E" is such a great big sister.  She is so much fun and has an amazing personality.

Amarillo Photographer / Haylen

Sorry I am just getting these photos on here.  Everything should be updated soon.

This is Haylen's 1st birthday shoot.  It was such a blast.  She is a character.  I not only got to play with her, I got to shoot as she ate her first cake for her 1st birthday.  I grew up with Haylen's mom until I moved to Amarillo when I was 12.  It was a lot of fun getting reconnected with her as well.

Thanks and God Bless,

~My First Ice Hockey Game~

YES, I DID SAY ICE HOCKEY!!! Here is Ridge and me before the game.

Here is me all suited up. With all that equipment, it sure is hard to get hurt. It takes 30-45 minutes to get it all on and then you have to go out there and skate for a while to get used to it and the ice! Wheewww!

My GAME FACE....Well, I can make a better one but I was looking at something when she took the pic!

I was actually super scared to play at first but it is SO much fun! I NEVER dreamed I would like anything like it! Which brings me to the question in your mind,"WHY in the world would you ever play ice hockey?" I have been watching Matthew play for a little over a year now but he is good. Then we started talking about "Sticks and Pucks" which is an instructional league. You really want to jump out there with those big guys but it is so important you learn the rules, learn how to skate and handle the puck. So, I tried "Sticks and Pucks" and absolutely love it. My 3rd time to be on the ice, we had a game. Matthew had bought me all new equipment that actually fit me and I was ready to go. It was a blast!

This is where I got knocked down while trying to get up from being knocked down.

There is me in the front with the red jersey on.

There is me again waiting to go back out.

There is my handsome hubby who coached our team that night. That was super special having him coach. He is the one that has taught me what I know in a very short period of time!

AND....Here is me scoring a goal........................For the WRONG team! Oh well, at least I made a goal. I did get an assist though FOR OUR OWN TEAM. lol Life is too short to not have some fun! (with lots of cushion I might add)
