I Love My Sister

While trying to come up with something to blog about today, I was going through old pictures and kept seeing ones of my sister and I.  I’m so glad my dad took so many pictures of us together as we were growing up.  We pretty much always got along growing up; sharing clothes, jewelry and a love of family.  I still remember my mom telling us (quite often) that we should not fight with each other, because some day we may live far apart (like her and her sisters) and not see each other often.  Luckily, my sister and her family live only ten houses down the street from me in the same subdivision.  We talk almost every day and see each other at least twice a week.  I’m so thankful that God saw to bless me with such a wonderful sister, confidant and best friend.  I love you Sara!

Family Photos at the Wedding

I love to check out other photographer’s wedding blogs.  It’s inspiring and keeps my ideas fresh.  Oddly, I do not see many pictures of the couples with their families.  So in honor of the two beautiful weddings I was able to photograph this weekend and all the sets of wonderful parents I was able to work with, here are a few family pics taken at my last few weddings.  Family pictures are not usually the most creative shots of the day, but I think they are some of the most important.  Especially being a mother myself, every time I take a pic of a groom and his mother, I immediately put myself in her shoes and start thinking about the day that my boys will eventually get married.  Happy tears, sniffle, sniffle, refocus…ok.  Enjoy!
