Summer Weddings

Summer weddings are over and into the fall.  I love being a part of a couple's first day of marriage together.  Here are some images from Rebecca and Charles day of matrimony.  Check out their slide show below.


Slide show from their special day!

I had so much fun photographing this wedding with my husband.  We felt we knew the family since we photographed Rebecca's sister, Jean's, wedding last September.

Summer Bridal Shower

I had the privilege of photographing a beautiful bridal shower that Tara Marks asked me to photograph.  Every detail was done with care, thought, and love.  From the napkins to the chairs, not a detail was missed.  I also love the friendship these ladies have.

Pink and silver were the colors.  The cake was a salted caramel cake created by Frosted Cakery and the flowers were arranged by Simply Flowers.  Frosted Cakery created the cookies as well.

The linens ,chairs, and chargers were rented from The Linen Shoppe.

There were so many delightful details like a "message on a bottle," recipe box, date night sticks, and "He Says...She Says" game.

Thank you for letting me be a part of this very special day!

Summer 2013

     Alright, I'm back.  I took a blog break, so Winter and Spring photos are on my Facebook page.  

     Summer has flown by!  I've not talked to one mom this summer that said their summer was "boring" or "uneventful."  When I asked the question, "How was your summer?"  The main response was, "BUSY!"  Whether you are a mom of 1 or a mom of 10, we all tend to fill our plates full of activities, projects, and "To Do" lists.  My summer was packed and I didn't post much at all, but that is what this blog post is post Summer 2013!

 From 10 brothers and sisters to a sweet newborn baby boy... adorable girls... my nieces and nephew!
More of Summer 2013 to come.  From weddings to a gorgeous bridal shower and more...
     On a side note, it is odd talking about summer in the past tense when it is still 108 degrees outside, but when the crayons, pencils, and glue stare you in the face as you walk into Target or Walmart, you know summer is over!  Since summer is over (Labor Day is not even here yet,) I have to begin planning out fall photos.  Fall is even more busy than summer, but I love it so.  Break out the sweaters, gloves, scarves, and boots and get ready to gather your family for those infamous Fall Family Fotos!!  I'm getting booked, but there are still spots in October and November available.  September is not a bad month to schedule even though it is still pretty warm.  I can Photoshop the sweat off your face, no worries.
Book your Fall Family Photos!

My Delights in 2012


Many wonderful events took place in 2012 in the Moore household.  One that stood out among the others was that Daniel's adoption was final!  Here is my favorite image I took of our little boy.

The 2nd amazing event that took place in 2012 was that we were placed with his little brother, Tyler!  His adoption should be final in 2013!  I'll look forward to posting an image of our new little boy once his adoption is final.

Another 2012 highlight was when our family took a road trip to the Grand Canyon.  I witnessed what looked like a young guy proposing to his girlfriend on a very far off ledge overlooking the canyon.  I'm such a hopeless romantic and this just made my trip.  Still not sure who the couple was though.

I also tried to savor all the soccer games, dance practices, moments cuddling on the couch, choir performances, meals together, and all the daily tasks with my family.

I'm looking forward to what 2013 holds.

The Dancer

I had so much fun photographing this young lady who loves to dance.  I jump at the opportunity to capture individuals performing their talents.  A photograph is more meaningful when it portrays someone doing something they love.

She effortlessly performed beautiful ballet positions.

Sharing the Light Some More

I also had the privilege to photograph the O' Rourke Family during our Sharing the Light Photography Workshop.  Thank you O' Rourke family for coming out and putting up with 5 photographers.  We enjoyed your family!!  They celebrated their 14th wedding anniversary a few days after the shoot and have 2 adorable daughters.

Sharing the Light

It is about time that I posted something new.  1/3 of a year goes by and all I did was blink.  I've been busy with homeschooling, family, home, and photography.  In the midst of my laundry, toys in the hallway, books stacked on my night stand to read, dishes ready to be put away, bills ready to be paid, I sit here at my trusty computer finally posting some photos and working on some wedding photos.  My 5 children are all asleep and my home is dead silent.  I feel truly blessed by it all.

These photos are from a workshop I did with some amazing fellow moms and photographers.  Thank you to our wonderful model, Lindsay Anne. Not only did we learn a lot from each other, but we had fun!  We are in a photography group called, Sharing the Light, and that is just what we want our lives about.
