Today I photographed a beautiful 11-day old and it was so much fun!! I can't thank Lisa and Mike enough for allowing me to "practice" using their newborn. They were SUCH good sports :) But speaking of good sport, Michael Anthony was AMAZING. He was having so much fun, that he wanted to stay awake for the whole session! After a bottle and a good rockin in the chair, Michael finally decided to go to sleep and then we had some fun posing his little body into baskets and hats and with baseballs and pumpkins, oh my!
See You at the Pole, the global day of student prayer, began in 1990 as a grass roots movement with ten students praying at their school. Twenty years later, millions pray on their campuses on the fourth Wednesday in September.
See You at the Pole is simply a prayer rally where students meet at the school flagpole before school to lift up their friends, families, teachers, school, and nation to God. See You at the Pole is a student-initiated, student-organized, and student-led event.
I am SOO stinkin proud of the students who stood boldly at our High School's flagpole this morning. It really takes a lot to stand before their whole school and their peers to pray to God. I bet most adults would not have the courage that many of these High School students displayed this morning. It was truly an honor to stand at the pole with the captain of the football team, the christian club, members of Campus Life, and other "curious" students, and listen to their hearts as they prayed in unity to God.
I need to give a shout-out to my biggest supporter of all! That would be my darling husband, Mr. Craig Muller.
Now honey, I might embarass you a bit here...
But it's true. I am so lucky to have him. Let me tell you, this guy's got some patience with a capital "P". Let me paint a picture:
It's a beautiful Saturday morning. "Honey, what do you want to do today?" "I don't know- let's take Kona for a walk on a nature trail". "Sounds good, should I bring my camera?" "You might as well... you'll be mad if you don't". ...an hour later....
"Look at these purple flowers!" Craig stops walking and waits as I take a couple of shots. A few steps later... "Look at that reflection!" Craig stops walking and waits as I take a couple of shots. A few steps later... "Look at that beautiful bird!" Craig stops walking and..... you get it. Just repeat about 100 more times.
He really is a special guy. And to this day- has never complained. He doesn't even roll his eyes at me! (I don't think). He believes in me, gets excited for me, and supports me in every way. Am I lucky or what?? What a guy.....
Well, I must be "offical" now! I finally got new and improved business cards! I toyed between getting the more standard-classy-simple look, or to go for a "unique" card. And with a little help from my friends (thanks Tim & Nicole & Craig), decided to go for the latter. On the front of each, is one of my orginal photographs, and the back contains my contact info. I have 19 different designs. Oh! And did I mention that each card is "mini"? Let's just say, this is not your standard business card. But I love them and I can't wait to pass them out to everyone I know :) I made a display of my cards to bring along with me when I do shows & fairs. Take a look!
This weekend we had our first annual family reunion (if it's the first one, can I call it that??) It was at Wantagh State Park on Long Island and was actually really nice! It was fun "meeting" family members, and connecting with others that I haven't seen since I was real young. We went for a walk down to the water, but my dog, Kona got us kicked out. Apparently, no dogs allowed- even though there were several dog runs in the park. Go figure.
Here are a few shots that I captured on our walk.
i don't know what these things are, but I like it!
Got a few shots of the water before we got "evicted".
I just thought this bench was so cool!
and what's a family reunion without some family??
that's me. watching dad and Joe play football
