Love is in the air...

Monday evening, our church held a Valentine Banquet.  I volunteered to take photos for the 2011 high school seniors who are saving for their graduation trip.  A great photographer in our assembly usually does the banquets, but he was out of town and wasn't able to do it.  Everyone signed off on the their order form giving me permission to use their photos on my website, so I've included all portraits taken.  Enjoy!













Miranda in the snow...

Miranda wanted at least one of her senior sessions in the snow.  I normally like to do outside sessions in the evening before sunset, but Miranda was busy Saturday evening so we scheduled for Saturday morning.  Thank God we did as the snow melted all day Saturday and it would have been a mess with little snow remaining.  The first pic of her in the snow was on my front porch.  I'm glad my husband didn't clean the porch off yet as it yielded quite a bit of snow without having to walk a distance for it!  Here are some of my favorites from her first senior session on Saturday.  Enjoy!!!

Back country tour in the desert

We rode in a Humvee to Joshua Tree National Park.  It was a pretty neat experience to take the back country ride in a military-type vehicle.  If you didn't wear your seat belt, you would not have been able to remain in the vehicle!  We were at a point that you could see the mountains of Mexico if you looked real hard.  Here are some of the pics we were able to take during the tour. Enjoy!





From a blizzard to the desert...

My husband and I rented a vacation home in Palm Springs, California, for a week.  We barely made it out from Kansas City due to the horrendous storm that hit the area. We both love to swim and this home has a private heated pool that we will enjoy during our stay.  Here are a few of the pics I took from the backyard the day after our arrival.  The sky here is so blue.  I did nothing to touch up the skies in these pics.  Enjoy!
