[Jan. 2012] A Day with the Allomong Family

I had the pleasure of spending the day with this beautiful family a couple of weeks ago!! We had a backdrop, some lights and Lots of Fun!! I have to say though, I had lots of tears when I looked at the finished product! Between Zander being a goofball and Kelly and Brandon wrestling around, I think they turned out simply stunning! Here a few of my favorites from the shoot...

Laughing- The Best of 2011

I got invited into a photography group on facebook a few weeks ago and they do monthly challenges. January's challenge was a photo or photos about laughing. I didn't even have to think-my laughing photo came to mind. As I went through all my picture folder's I remembered how much fun I had with this family. Not only did they make me laugh the entire time I was shooting them, but they made me appreciate what real quality family time is! When I left them and went to the next shoot I realized that I too needed to put my family first and make good memories with them. With all this blah blah blah being you go! This by far is the BEST set of photo's of my 2011! Meet the Gibler-Suffel Family!

Back to the swing of things...

Today is the last day of my vacation. I am back to the swing of things tomorrow! I may not of been shooting, but I have been busy researching and planning my 2012 year. I am investing in a new camera and things to have a studio in my home. I am very excited to be finally expanding my business. If you would of asked me 3 years ago when I left my job what I would be doing right now I would of answered..."Dishes and Laundry!" I totally felt lost and out of control of everything when I stopped working. I remember one night I prayed that God would lead my in the direction I was supposed to go. I needed a purpose! I always knew being a mommy and a wife was something I would be, but never here....a growing business owner-and a photography business to-boot! With a positive mind and a loving heart I know this year is going to be the best year yet!  Keep watching for some family-newborn-and first birthday shoots in the next week! ~Jessica

In Between Laundry: 20 Minute Missions {Countdown to Christmas}

So I can finally rest...for a bit! It's New Years Day!! I sat here thinking about all the things I had going on the last few months-My photography business including my tutu's and hair things and kids that are involved in EVERYTHING! Jaxon (who is plays every sport) is in traveling basketball. Hallie (the nine year old) is in dance and starting basketball. Then my baby, (Keegan-the four year old) is in preschool and starting a biddy wrestling program. I feel like I haven't had any down time. I can actually say I haven't sat and watched a tv show for a while-I have just listened. Then the Holidays arrived. I think I forgot what sleep was. I had a brilliant idea to hand make all my gifts for family and friends-What Was I Thinking? Then I had to shop for my own kids and then try to wrap everything. Did I forget to mention that I live with a neat freak? Oh, and all the class parties we needed homemade snacks for?! I wish I would of found this blog before I got myself in the Holiday swing... In Between Laundry: 20 Minute Missions {Countdown to Christmas}. I will totally be using her 20 min. Missions and keep the Holidays-not the Horrible-days for my family! God Bless!
