This For Those Who Wait

"The pressures make us stronger // The struggle makes us hunger // the hard lessons make a difference // The pressures make us stronger // The struggle makes us hunger // the hard lessons make a difference// and the difference.. makes it worth it." 
~This is For Those Who Wait, Fireflight

This song has really spoke to me about waiting. And how really waiting is an active action... I'm actually doing something, even when it doesn't always feel like I am. I think sometimes that's when you learn the most, patience, endurance, dealing with your emotions, mental struggles. The struggle makes us hunger; the more that we are challenged, the more we fight, the more we struggle the more we will hunger after God. The more we will realize how much we actually *need* Him. But the hard lessons make all the difference, and the difference is what makes it worth it.

Crazy Times!

I promise myself that I'm going to finally catch up on everything... like blogging, and cleaning, and running, etc. etc. But.... life's been crazy! Ever since I got home from Portland {yes, I know I never posted pictures} I've been going, going {gone!} 24/7. I guess I kind of like it that way, it's definitely far from boring.

The general editor at the The World {the newspaper I work at} retired, so as they're trying to keep up I've gotten an assignment list about a mile long. I'm doing everything from the Ernie's Grocery Store's Grand Opening to the "Chili Cook-off" and The Classic Car Show. Along with all six fall sports. I've been pretty much stuck to my computer and the phone. And coffee's becoming one of my best friends. {we've always been close, but I think it's developed into something more ;)} I *do* get to use my camera for most of it which makes life great :-)

Soon I should get some time to share lots of thought that have been floating around in my head these months. Also have another senior session to share.... lots of sweet images coming up! That's all for now, gonna go clean the bathrooms, make some zucchini jam, and have some coffee. Have an blessed day!

The Amazingness that is Katie S.

One of my closest friends is going into her senior year, and  a couple weeks ago *I* got the sweet opportunity to take her grad pictures. Let me tell you, we had the best time /ever/!! Seriously. Katie is game for anything and everything. She has such a sweet heart, and is a lovely daughter of God. She also has an insane amount of energy. Insane. Ever meet the Energizer bunny in person? I have ;) So we went lots of places, took lots {and lots} of sweet images, and had lots and lots of fun. I had a really hard time picking images to post, because there were too many great ones! Thanks again Katie, for choosing me to shoot these special pictures.

{One of my favorites}

{This green door made me excited! loved it.}

{Can't decide which of these I like better. Either way, both are some of my favs}

{This old school was creepy, yet amazing at the same time}
[oh yeah, and someone lives in it. We found *that* out :/ ]

Kelli Roline - Class of 2010

I am sooo behind on everything, including blogging. I took these images of Kelli a couple weeks ago, but life's been crazy. Lots of stuff going on at the newspaper, on top of all the photography happening at this time of year. Anyway, Kelli and I had a great time roaming around her parent's property, they had lots of fun places for pictures. :-)

Katie and Anna, also 2010 seniors... coming soon!
