First, I would like to say Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers out there! I hope it was wonderful yesterday! šŸ™‚ I got to spend last night with my mom and family and what a great time to end the day with great conversations and laughs the entire time! My mom means so much to me and so fortunate to be able to look up to her in my life. So blessed!

And hmmmm … I think I need an updated family photo, don’t you think?! Since this was like two years ago! Shesh! Hahaha!

Besides Mother’s Day, I had one of the most “chill” weekends I’ve had in a longgggg time! The weather postponed a sunrise session Saturday morning which allowed me to sleep in … sayyyy what?! YES! SLEEP! Don’t let me fool you by “sleep in” … meaning 8 a.m. But that was nice! šŸ™‚ And of course I took off for Mother’s Day from sessions! But I did volunteer at my church, along with two other great photographers, doing a photobooth type of family formals! It was nice to see a line of families through the hallway waiting for their photo to be taken. And it was super fun!!! I will definitely be sharing photos from this weekend soon!

For this weekend, I have had two priceless moments with sessions/wedding party! That just never happens! Lol! Here is a preview of even more to come this week! Yay!

Can you tell what is wrong with this photo? LOL! This totally happened in the middle of the session and I am so glad I captured this reaction because it seriously only lasted for .05 seconds before she decided she did not want William on her lap anymore. Bahhaha!

In the middle of storms Saturday night, a rainbow appears and I grabbed my bride/groom to RUN out into the POURING rain … and in my heels through the farm … to get this shot! My poor camera … BUT, this was worth it! šŸ™‚

Hope everyone has a wonderful start to their work week! šŸ™‚
