christmas photo sneak peak

My talented friend Lindsey took some Christmas pics for us and ILOVE how they turned out! Here are a few teasers; not sure which ones I'll use. There are too many choices! We shot on location at Saddleback Church's youth center called "The Refinery." It was everything I hoped for: a place with great textures and backgrounds. THANK YOU, Linds. If you live in the area, she's *thinking* about starting a business and is starting to work on her portfolio.

wordless wednesday

I've had a rough couple of weeks on a variety of fronts--ongoing lonliness and settling in back here in CA, sleep issues with Curren most of which are resulting from having broncholitis (not bronchitis) and having to give him breathing treatments 4-8 times a day, and after having some *amazing* weeks with Maggie, we've had some massive uphill battles in the last 2 weeks, including fighting going to bed and naptime. Plus, we are just wrestling with a potential new job in a local church and what our role will be, as well as trying to decide how to finish school! God is faithfully leading us; but life is often overwhelming. Some outdoor fall play cheered our spirits last week.

faces by lindsey

I wish you knew how many of my good friends are very gifted photographers (in no order): Elicia, Tina, Laurie, Bethany, Shey, Erin, Linds, Allison, my sister, Nicole. I hope I'm not leaving anyone off! If so, tell me and I'll make an addendum. These friends have the *best* cameras (Allison, that was for you!). No, really, they have the best eyes for photographing life around them and capturing the moments that happen. Lindsey took these shots last week of my sweet kiddos. She is also taking our Christmas pics. I can't wait!
