~Amarillo Photographer / Evie~

Evie, Evie Evie, I can't say enough about how much I love this girl and her mommy and daddy!  I have been photographing Evie since she was tiny tiny and this is her 4 year old photo shoot.  We wanted her to do the things she is really into and is really liking at this time of her life.  It was a lot of fun!

Sweet girl is all smiles for her 4 year old birthday!!!

We painted in the park and what an artist Evie is!!!

We swung, we did all the slides...

Evie rode her bike and let me tell you she is FAST!  She almost ran over me several times!
We laughed A LOT!!!!  It is hard to resist that giggle of hers!

We ended the evening with chalk!  Oh...I forgot to mention Evie got her first hair cut on this day and she (a 4 year old) got to give her hair she cut to Locks Of Love.  How special is that!  I love you sweet Evie!

~My life and what God has been doing in my life lately~ God has been doing A LOT of work in my life.  Some, is a challenge, some I don't like so much but as I am learning through the book of James, "Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters when you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.  Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking in anything."  James 1:2-3

Having the stomach bug for 2 months has been no fun (3 weeks of that was on vacation) and we still haven't found out the results to that test but I am starting to feel better and am able to eat a little more.  Also during our NJ vacation, I was in the ER trying to find out what was wrong with my stomach and my Grandma died.  A week later, while still on vacation, my Grandad died.  WOW, what a vacation.  Being sick, my grandparents dying while I am across the country, and trying to have fun was a challenge but by God's grace, it happened.  

Grumpiness set in when I got home:  I took things out on my husband the most.  I didn't feel well at all and he was the main person I have been around and talked to.  He finally said something, PRAISE GOD because I don't want to do that at all.  And God has really been working with me on this!  Matthew is so gracious and I love him so much!  

Through this, I have been feeling a little insecure.  I think it is because I have been cooped up in the house sick and haven't really done anything much yet to get out.  I have been feeling inadequate about doing certain things beginning this fall.  God has constantly laid this scripture on my heart...through other people, through the Word, through Pinterest, you name it...
"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect through weakness."  2 Corinthians 12:9
And if that wasn't enough, I saw this:

I LOVE this!!!  God speaks!  The question is, do I listen or do I walk away and forget what I just read... just like looking at myself in the mirror and forgetting what I look like?  (Also in the book of James) I want so much to put God's Word into action.  He is my life.  He is my everything!  I am in awe of Him every day.  Thank you God for all of the trials you put in mine and Matthew's life . We thank you for them!  We both know that we grow stronger through them.  Thank you so much for the many many blessings as well!  Please help me to be a better wife (Proverbs 31 Wife), friend and daughter.   I want that more than anything!  I love you so much!  Amen

This was such a fun shoot.  Expecting parents, Terri and Michael were both just glowing 
knowing that their baby boy would be here very soon.

I went to school with Terri and Michael so it was really neat to get to experience this with them!

Terri looks like a beautiful pregnant goddess here.  I love it.  I love the one on the right where Michael has the sonogram photo in his pocket looking at his glowing wife.

I love this one of Daddy reading to the baby.  Daddy is a big soccer player too and they are sure to have a 'lil soccer player of their own!

From food cravings to baby clothes....

This girl is ready to pop!  Congratulations you guys!!!
