Happy Easter Weekend!

Jeremy and I are leaving soon for the Orlando area where his grandparents live.  This Sunday is one of my favorite Sunday’s because it’s a special time to remember the resurrection of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

I hope this weekend you’re able to hunt Easter eggs, spend time with family, and go to church. And of course, this brings with it the never ending battle to wear something ridiculously cute and “spring-like” to church!

And because every post deserves a picture…

I just love watermelon – It’s such a great “spring” food…

Happy Easter!

Feeling Beautiful

It isn’t a secret that I love fashion magazines and get tons of inspiration from them, and if you know me well you would also know that I happen to LOVE America’s Next Top Model. Long before I was a photographer I was drawn to the show( and despite what my husband says, I don’t think that Nigel Barker was the main reason). The photo shoots were fascinating to me, I loved watching the interaction between the models and the photographers. One of the things that amazed me from the very beginning was the fact that many of the girls on the show looked so plain and normal. They weren’t necessarily the most beautiful girls…they looked remarkably like people that I knew, and yet when I would see the photos of them I was blown away…they looked stunning.

When I first became a photographer I photographed just about anyone who would let me take their picture. Somehow when I edited their images I felt the same way about them as I did about those girls on Top Model. It was then that I realized that one of the most amazing things about being a photographer is the ability to make ordinary people feel stunning. I don’t photograph models, and though I am sure it would be fun, I love the challenge of bringing out the Top Model in every girl that steps in front of my camera. Our culture is full of things that make women feel like they are not what they should be, I LOVE the fact that I can have a small part in making every woman that I photograph feel beautiful inside and out.

Love this post Kristin. I feel the same way, if I can make a girl feel gorgeous when I’m taking her pictures thats the most satisfying feeling!

Laura

And you’re doing such a great job of it, Kristin! Keep those shots coming! ;D There’s nothing more beautiful than a woman in love.

Jessica

aww..I made it in the post. Is this the picture you start laughing because you actually got me to do not smile and do a sort of model face! haha I’ll admit I felt beautiful on that day! Thank you for capturing our day!

You do photograph beautiful people. I am so thankful that I have never shot anyone that was less than gorgeous : ) I find so much beauty in each person. One time I heard a wedding photographer complain about having to shoot a wedding with an ‘ugly’ couple. It broke my heart. I believe their is beauty in everyone. I am glad you find it too!

Love love love this post! & the pictures too! ;)

I am in love with…

The past few weeks I have been eating foods that my Mom used to make. For some reason all of those home cooked meals give me a little taste of home, even when I am miles away. I have heard some people talk about their mom’s cooking with less than glowing reviews of her signature dishes, but I always had a different story. I guess it is just one of those things that you don’t realize you miss until you are all “grown up” and don’t have it anymore.

Sure, some of them are delicious recipes,but then there are other things that aren’t really a recipe that just remind me of being 10 years old. Today I had a tomato sandwich for lunch, and I am pretty sure I had De Ja Vu to being 10 years old on a summer afternoon. It made me want to grab a book and a popsicle and read away several hours on the front porch swing, which is what I did for most of my preteen and early teen years.

I could have added a picture of the sandwich that made me remember back to my childhood…but you see it was so good that I ate it without having a chance to snap a picture….oops

I always get that same feeling whenever I eat a grilled cheese sandwich with ketchup. lol Most people wrinkle their noses, but that is something that I learned from my mom and my great-aunt. It’s kinda like a tradition, although I’m the only one who does it now. lol :)

Jessica and Tim | Wedding | Part 2

Selecting a handful of pictures was so difficult from the wedding last weekend, I decided to go ahead and split it up into two posts. If you missed Part 1 be sure to check it out.

Jessica and Tim – Part 1

I feel like I must start at the very beginning to let you know how much I loved photographing this wedding. Jessica contacted me several months ago, and from the first few moments that I talked to her I felt like I was talking to a long lost friend. We loved the same things, and chatted like we had known each other for years. I was so excited this past weekend that her and Tim’s wedding was finally here.

Jessica and Tim met in a Sunday School class at their church, but it was a class work project that started their romance. They have had a whirlwind romance, and you can just see that they are meant for each other when you spend just a few moments around them.

Their wedding day was perfect, they were surrounded by their amazing families whom Jeremy and I came to love as we spent this gorgeous day with them. I decided to split the wedding into two posts so you will have to stay tuned tomorrow to see more of their gorgeous wedding.

Jessica and Tim, Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your wedding, it was truly an honor to capture the love that the two of you share. I am so excited to see what the future holds for the two of you!

undefinedIt was clear while Jessica was getting ready that she has a bit of an obsession with Coke Zero!undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedJessica and Tim opted to see each other before the ceremony for a  First Look. I love when clients do this, it gives plenty of time for pictures and is one of the most special moments of the day. Tim gave Jessica a new Bible with her brand new name and she was so thrilled.undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefined
