Farewell to the Frieling Family

Paul and Jamie Frieling are such an amazing couple- with two adorable little boys. I have known the Frielings now for 4 wonderful years and have been beyond blessed with their generosity, love and friendship. They are now heading to St. Louis to start a new chapter of life where Paul is continuing his education to be a chiropractor and Jamie will start her teaching career. We had a farewell party about a month ago and enjoyed time with friends- celebrating the Frielings. They will be missed so much!

Love Affair '09

Lately I've been waking up with photography on my mind...I just love it and am so excited for what the Lord's doing. God has provided me with quite a few photo shoots in the months to come and I'm overwhelmed by His goodness. Posting my new photos will be a ton of fun and I'd love your feedback.

As I dream of doing photography full-time, I am amazed at the resources now available to photographers. I follow a photographer named Lauren Clark. She is located in Texas (need I say more...I love Texas) and her photos are simply brimming with life and color and fun. My good friend Rachael MacPhee told me about her and I'm so thankful. Lauren's photos provide me with inspiration and wonderful ideas...check her out.

Through Lauren Clark's blog I've learned about a workshop called Love Affair, which is a 3 day event completely dedicated to women in the photography industry. All aspects of owning your own photography business are discussed and focused upon. It looks like such an AMAZING experience...one I'd love to be part of some day.

Yes...I'm just getting started with this journey of photography...but I absolutely love it. And I believe the Lord is blessing it every day. The opportunity to attend Love Affair '09 would be one that I am unable to describe in words. I believe it would be a privilege. There's so much I want to learn and I feel like a sponge right now- I long to soak up all I can.

Check out Love Affair's web-site and see what this amazing workshop offers. Anyone who is able to attend will leave blessed, inspired, educated and filled with determination to make their business all it can be.
