Tenth Anniversary

So Brooke had this fabulous to do a vow renewal ceremony for her 10th with her awesome hubby!  It was a beautiful occasion and a special night for these two love birds.  I really love how sweetly they love each other.  Honestly, if more couples loved each other like they do, this world would be a much better place!

Do you Instagram?

It wasn't until last year that I become an Instagramer, and I am really glad I did.  Why, you may ask?  Well, I'll tell you! ... 

Some of my most cherished images were taken with my phone and edited in Instagram or VSCO cam (and then displayed on Instagram).  The simple convenience of being able to take a picture at any moment with a smart phone makes it so effortless capture those fleeting moments of the day, the little ones, the special ones, the ones that make your heart feel warm and cozy.  I'm so glad I have these memories that I otherwise might forget.

Another reason I like it is because taking pictures specifically to display on an app like Instagram means that you automatically have all your favorite phone pics in one place.  This is perfect when it comes time to print or to create a fun project with your favorite photos!

I thought I'd share some of my favorite Instagram pics that I took this last year.  I hope you enjoy this little glimpse into my life.  The style of photography is somewhat different here than other pictures you see on this website.  I definitely take some creative liberties and don't worry so much about technical perfection when taking pictures with my phone, which actually is very liberating, and allows me to catch some memories I wouldn't otherwise have had.

Do you Instagram?  I'd love to see some of your precious every day moments too!  Message me on my Facebook page if I'm not already following you on Instagram. :)  And remember to keep taking pictures!!

 I was so impressed with this sweet family.  You observe a lot of things about people when taking pictures of them, especially when they have young children.  They way these two treated each other and their children with love and patience was very touching to me.  Don't get me wrong, many other people do too, but these guys stood out to me because it came so naturally, it's just a part of who they are.
It really was a pleasure to take their pictures!
