I encourage you

I totally convinced my mom to join the blogging world.. I told her its unexplainable how blogging can make you see things in a totally different perspective after you re-read what you have wrote. You know what I mean.. For me blogging is a way to express your feelings, talk about something you can't seem to find the words for, ask for advice, complain, VENT, share what's new in your life, and most of all tell your story. I know not all of you know what it's like to deal with infertility but it's well worth it to humble myself and tell my story and my journey if it has helped just one lost soul in this confusing busy world. I encourage you to read my Mom's blog as she records her journey in this universe, she is a strong women full of wisdom and insight, and has a way with words like no other, (well besides Jenn Higg, our own little Callahan story teller, lol luv ya girl)... But check it out as she tells her journey through divorce and living as a divorced mother..

I have some exciting news to share, I have applied to become a member or the Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep Foundation, it's a foundation throughout the United States, that supplies photographer's for families who have still born children. You go in and take portraits, like new born portraits, for the parent's so that they will have something left of their precious bundle of joy they most give away. They carry their child for 9 months just to hold that precious baby and then let God has it back. I can't imagine the pain that would bring a mother and father, I just can't even grasp my mind around the though, but it happens more than we acknowledge, actually 1 in every 200 pregnancies it happens. If I could even begin to help ease a fraction of the pain by providing my photography service I am honored. I hope and pray that the foundation can find a way to let me volunteer. Check it out, I think it's an amazing opportunity... Here's a little more info about it, incase if any of my fellow photography friends are interested..

Pregnancy: The state of being with child. [British Medical Dictionary] The beginning of a parent's hopes and dreams. The anticipation of the pitter patter of tiny little feet. A family being born unto each other. No parent ever expects their dream to shatter. But sadly, sometimes this dream can turn into a nightmare.

Each year nearly 3.3 million babies are stillborn, and more than 4 million others die within 28 days of coming into the world. [World Health Organization] With advanced medical technology, it is a parents expectation that those born unto us will out live us. When a baby dies, it is outside the natural order of life and families are left devastated and forever changed.

Every living being instinctually knows how to grieve. It is learning how to heal, that some need help with. Offering gentle and beautiful photography services in a compassionate and sensitive manner is the heart of the Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation.

Remembrance Photography is a very important step in this healing process. Photographs are one of the most precious and tangible mementos that a parent can have, showing the love and bond that was given and shared with their baby. These portraits will last for generations, and will honor and remember a tiny life that is forever loved and cherished.

On a lighter note, I hope you are all having a great week, and I am sure you are looking forward to your weekends as much as I.. Well as much as me and Jaime are.. I know we are both super hyped about a Bridal Session we are doing on Saturday.. WE CANT WAIT.. I look forward to sharing those pictures with you... (Sorry for all the phone calls Jaime, :) I can't help it when my creative juices start flowing.. )

Before I forget, =) Thank you Jenn and Kati for my awards.. I was thrilled to receive 4 awards last week.. How awesome.. I enjoy everyone of your blogs, and can't wait to see where 2009 takes us all..

Speaking of 2009, I am praying for the safe arrival of Little Tucker, and for My friend Shelley and Katherine's child, they are both unsure of what they are having currently...

I have a praise today, It's look's like baby Maddox is doing much better, That's a answered prayer. Praise the Lord.. (He was in the hospital with an infection and on oxygen earlier this week, this is Lindsay Oneal Brooks baby boy, the one who was in the infant christmas portraits..) Thank you for all the prayers..

I have some prayer requests as well, I am praying for my grandmother this week, that she stays well, she is doing GREAT right now, and also Josh and Becca Monds, they are pregnant and things arent looking to great for them, I am not sure of all the details but they have already lost a child due to some type of infection I believe and it may happen again, so I am praying that God with comfort them in this time of need and have his way, and whatever it may be, that they will be surrounded around his peace and see him through this time of hurt.

Please keep all these people in your hearts and prayers.. It's much appreciated.

Night Loves...

Let me know, comment me back or email me..

You can view some of my work from 2008 on a previous blog post and on my myspace.

They are in the photography fun album..


I have been distracted

Hey y'all. I just wanted to say YES I am still here.. I have been trying to slowly catch up some of the blogs I have drafted that is why you see a few new ones popping up here and there. I have been so busy with work, and then sucked into the Cullen Vortex that nothing else has been a priority on my list. I started readying the Twilight Saga about 2 weeks ago after seeing the movie with Christina and have been addicted since the first page. I am on the last book now with about 200 pages to go, so I am sad on one note that the story is over but glad on another that I will no everything and not be wondering what will happen next. I would recommend these books to anyone who loves to read or anyone who doesn't like to read, its very easy to get sucked in and hooked on them. It's a wonderful love story about Edward and Bella and their love for one another is simply overwhelming. Anyways I will be done with my last book this week and promise to get in focus for 2009. I love sharing everything with you guys and feel like I am disappointing you if I don't blog about whats going on... Besides that all is well, I have been slightly down in the dumps lately about the baby thing, mainly because i have been surrounded around great kids and it has me thinking. The other night I had some friends over and they had their little adorable baby with them and he was just soo precious and i was sitting their thinking, dang its been over a year since we starting trying to conceive, how much longer can i deal with this, but the answer is something no one knows, as long as god gives me the strength to deal with it. The worst part is when you see your husband looking and can tell what hes thinking by his face, I just wish I could give him what he desires. I am just starting to be emotionally drained, i can only keep my emotions on the back burner for so long. So please pray for me if you would, i need Patience, more patience, i am starting to run short on that. I hope everyone is have a wonderful new year. Keep in touch..

Until next time,

This is my pic for the week. It's a unedited pic from my brothers photo shoot with his band.. Isn't he handsome.. I love you Bubba!!

Goodbye 08, hello 09...

So even though I am not the world's best photographer, I am really not that good to be honest, but I love it so I thought I would post some of my favorite 2008 pics. These pics remind me of all the memoires in 2008 that I enjoyed and the good times... Mostly of all they remind me of the friendships I have established, and I am thankful for that..

The first 3 are of Jessica and Michael, those were on Jaimes old film camera, talk about getting lucky, =)...

I have moved up since then to my digital which I love.

Heres to 2009 and hopefully learning more about digital photography!!

Happy New Year!

I have a ton of pictures and will get them up as soon as I can find a free minture. My blogging habbits are getting weak, I will try to do better.
