Tomorrow at this time I will be headed to Branson MO - so exciting. My previously clean bedroom now looks like a hurricane ravaged through it, thanks to packing. I love packing for a trip though... it's so exciting. You can crank up the music, pop & dance around getting your stuff together, see how tiny you can fold your clothes into the suitcase (because it's always just so awesome to proudly hold up your suitcase, pronouncing it the smallest out of the whole family's and be oh-so-proud of yourself for packing so lightly), organize everything into mini containers (who doesn't find those little shampoo travel size bottles completely adorable??). Yes, it's all just so fun. And then you have all these fabulous lists with everything you need to pack, and get done (lists are so great). Yes, yes yes, so, next week - no updates. But when I get back I hope to have a myriad of new photos to post from my trip. :0)

Also, my photo shoot from last Friday got canceled due to rain. So no new photos from that. Within a couple of weeks (of getting back from my trip) I hope to do it though.

I wanted to post some new photos but my memory card reader is acting up. But, I thought a random-no-picture post was better then no post at all. Plus I wanted to let you guys know I'd be gone. :-)

Tomorrow I'll be sitting in the car for a good 12 hours. Thank God for my ipod (I'm uploading some poppin' new tunes for the trip, yay), and my crazy family to amuse me. ha.
Pleas pray a safe, fun trip for me (and that the hours tomorrow will pass quickly...)!

Hello friends!

I realize it's been a while since I last updated. And I'm not going to waste time with a list of random excuses except to say that I needed a bit of a break... sometimes you simply need a break. I was growing weary of updating, feeling like I had nothing interesting to say, and that my photos all seemed to look the same. I often wish I was one of those people who could just ramble on about something totally boring and random, and sound interesting, but I'm not. So, you guys will just have to live with me, and hopefully still enjoy my photos. :-)

I suppose I should have stated that I was taking a break, but frankly I've hardly even logged into my blogger since I last updated. It wasn't this "okay, I'm going to take a break for 'blank' amount of time now, I need to let everyone know"... it just kind of happened, and I just allowed myself to chill out about it. I need to learn to chill.

During this time I have not stopped snapping. I have a photo shoot coming up this weekend that I'm very excited about and will definitely be posting the photos to!

Bellow I have some photos from a photo shoot I did with my sweet friend Kristen whom I took head shots for. She's a very talented aspiring young actress who was a pleasure to work with. Me and her have been taking dance lessons together for the past few years. She's such a sweet soul, a lovely dancer, and has a very bright smile that always lights up a room. :-) So, without further ado, here are my {4} favorites...


Check out that gorgeous smile...


She had a really hard time not smiling for this one... yes, that's Kristen. :-)


So, yes, that's it. :-) I hope you all are doing well. Thanks so much for looking at my blog.
