I was asked to photograph some of the events from Veterans Day and even though this was two weeks ago, I've been meaning to put the images on the blog. Veterans Day is very important to me and I can't thank the men and women in uniform enough for all they do. My heart was heavy as I couldn't help but think of my brother all day long, not that I don't think of him all day long already. Some days just hit me so much harder than I ever expect and this happened to be one of them. I felt like and emotional mess the entire weekend. But, the events were nice and great to attend. Thank you to all of our service members.. past, present and future! We love and appreciate you!!

4 years ago today, our son, Montana was diagnosed with cancer. The details remain vivid from that single phone call that changed our entire future. We spent the next months at St. Jude finding out the details, new vocabulary, medications, and new friends. Nothing was ever the same and it will never be the same. We are forever changed by that one little word.. leukemia. Today he is a healthy and happy 6 yr old. with two little sisters. He loves swimming, art and eating. We are so thankful to everyone who has helped us along the way. Those of you ho have prayed for him and for us, who have sent cards and gifts, who have stood by us as we cried, laughed and worried. We are so thankful for a God who has allowed our son to live more years on this earth. It definitely was not easy, but we are thankful he is living. Amen.

Last week I had the pleasure of shooting this lovely couple in Colonial Williamsburg. She is going to school at William and Mary to finish her PHD and he works as an Engineer. They are one of the sweetest and kindest couples I have ever met. The weather was perfect as we walked around and scouted out locations for places to shoot. It was the leaves and the colors we were after. I do believe we were blessed with perfect timing.
