i'm normally a morning blogger, but i was out the door too early this morning. mom had her gall bladder removed this morning, so i was at the hospital early and then i ran to omaha for a morning photoshoot. all went well with mom, thankfully. her pain tolerance is through the roof. she is home and doing really well so far. thanks for your prayers.
i have so much i want to say, but i'm so busy with editing, that i need to keep this short. i was super excited to get an email from cara, letting me know that our peeks were up on her blog! i am so happy to finally have photos of all of us! we planned for a long time to make it work for everyone...all of us are so busy, it took a major effort to get a date set, so that everyone could be there. and cara was sweet enough to take us all on-no small task! i am usually a very laidback, spontaneous person, so the fact that we planned way ahead, and i even planned the color scheme(which i emailed to each family!)
and we took our couch, the green chair, and even a borrowed orange vintage truck (thanks dr grassmeyer!) to the farm. tom hooked the trailer up to his pickup, then ryan drove that, tom drove the vintage truck....plus, all of us in our vehicles following-quite an entourage! it was a pretty cool scene...almost movie set-ish. i wish i had taken a photo of the overall scene. it was pretty much mass chaos, so that didn't happen. i was so pleased to just have everyone there, and cooperating! i am so, so very happy to have family photos! i think it was good for me to be in front of the camera this time too. i think it gave me a better feel for what my clients might be feeling. cara was so patient with us. i don't think there is anything as challenging as taking a large group photo. thanks cara!
in other news, i had the privilege of taking photos of a young man from the madison wisconsin area last sunday. daenon and his sweet mama, renae, drove down to omaha on saturday, and spent the night in the old market area, and then tom and i met up with them sunday for daenon's senior photos. i was completely honored that they drove that far, for his photos. he is such a great guy. i had the best time with both him and renae. quality people. renae, i hope that you and your family are happy with these!
oh and i forgot to mention that he is great-looking AND super sweet!
this one is my favorite....i think.
the time went much too quickly! i loved every minute with these two!
so, the day has flown by, and tom will be off work soon. we plan to have a date night tonight. it's been so busy lately, that we have just had stolen moments together, so our plan is to see a movie tonight. i'm pulling for *secret life of bees* and he's pulling for *appaloosa* ...we shall see who wins! i actually want to see both, so it's fine either way!
God bless you and yours!
