Hey all!

Guess what? I was chosen to be featured on Awesome Photographs! This is a site that is run by some really great photographers, and they basically choose whether they think your photo is awesome or not.

Anyway, it was a fun session, and I feel really honored to have been chosen! :) Please check it out!

Maternity Session

Neal Jacob and I got together this weekend and did a maternity shoot for a young lady named Carina. I just went along with Neal to help out . . .

We shot in the Babies 'R Us that she worked at. It actually worked out okay -- even with warehouse lighting!

Here are a few shots . . .

Christmas with the Halsey family

First, a bit about the story . . . every year, my mom's family has a large Christmas party. Other than weddings, it is pretty much the only time all year that we get to see each other. Anyway, being in Virginia, Michael and I don't get to go anymore (we have to teach through the week right before Christmas and normally this is on the weekend in the teens). Anyway, this year, I found a really cheap flight and flew home to surprise everyone -- even my mom. My dad picked me up at the airport (my parents are divorced) and dropped me off at the mom's. It was so much fun . . . I walked through the front door and said, "is there room at this party for one more?" My mom was sooooo excited. Plus, my 93 year-old Grandma was there, and I felt like it was really important to see her. It felt so good to be there, and a fun surprise on top of that.

Anyway, here are a few pics from the day -- just random stuff.

My mom, my uncles and my grandma . . .

I have the cutest cousins . . .

Winter Wonderland

These are shots from our time in Colorado over Christmas. There was no playing with Photoshop done to any of these. I love them! :)
