Holland & Justin e-session

So, it's Monday and I am sad to say that I am just now getting the soreness out of my legs from doing P90x legs and back... on THURSDAY! Every time I do legs and back I'm sore for atleast three days and it kills me to even think of doing any exercise in those three days. Maybe one day I'll fully commit to the program and do it every day, but I doubt my body would appreciate the pain it would go through, so for now, I will spare myself.

I loved this session with Holland & Justin. The colors and feel of the pictures remind me of Spring for some reason. Not sure why, maybe the pink shirts? Anyways, here are a few of my favorites followed by a slideshow.

Sneak Peek: Holland & Justin

It was so great meeting Holland & Justin for engagement pictures. They were so fun, sweet and easy to work with! The weather was perfect..unlike today. We went to my husband's aunt's house to take the pictures. It's an amazing home on beautiful property. Will definitely have to go there more often.

here's one of my favorites...

the news

So I mentioned earlier that I had an announcement that had to do with photography. Well, if you haven't figured it out from the new blog header, I am going to begin concentrating more on families, babies, newborns, seniors, engagements, bridals, etc., and less on weddings. I have made this decision based on lots of prayer and guidance from Jesus. I will still do a limited amount of weddings per year and mainly for couples with short engagements (the best kind). I will honor my commitments for the weddings I have booked this summer so far and will provide nothing less than my best for them and am so excited about them all! I basically came to a point where I felt like I needed to choose an area to specialize in and it was clear this was the direction. So, I have for you the new Secondbreath photography...

You will be lucky enough, soon enough, to see some of this little girl again soon!

snow day

The snow day I was hoping for came and went. It was a pretty big one! We were unsuccessful at finding random things in the yard to sled on. So we tied a boogey board up to my parent's gator and pulled each other. good times.



He looks scared because his dad is driving..;)
My view from sledding
Benson helped build his new friend.

Pray for baby hall

The very first wedding I photographed was for my friend Brittany's sister Sommer. I was thrilled she was allowing me to do it since I had NO experience at all. It was a great wedding to get started with.
Brittany just informed me that Sommer's newborn baby was being flown to Charleston to have heart surgery. Please Please Please be praying for this family! Something went wrong with the initial surgery, so they are having to go into another surgery for 4 hours. So if you read this, please just stop and pray that God will comfort this family and that no matter what happens they will know Jesus is so good.

sneaker peeker

Sweet Caroliiiiiiiine.... da da da. My friend Caroline married her best friend Nick last weekend. This was my first time meeting him and I can see why she has fallen for him. He's such a servant! This wedding was very sweet and very laid back which I love! The rain had no effect on the bride's mood. It did have an effect on the different types of images we could get, but hey, I like a challenge I guess... the lighting and rain were definitely a challenge for this wedding. I've been working hard going through so many pictures that were taken, but I felt like it was time for a sneak peek. These images are from the beginning of the wedding...I'm just now getting to editing the reception...I told you we took tons of pictures!

Here's a few random ones...






Hopefully I'll be better about posting this week! My goal is to finish this wedding by next Monday so check back for more pictures!
Also, I may have a big announcement about some photography related things...
until then, Have a happy Monday!

p.s. Check out my friend Kristi's praying for the Tippings and their 6 babies!..yes, 6!
