He wasn't sure what to do with the cake at first, then he figured it all out!!

A storyboard with photos from a 1st Birthday Party I did...It was at a park that had a small water park for the kids. Dylan was fascinated by the water spouts that came up from the ground!!

Making their debut entrance as husband and wife.

A storyboard page I named "Details".

A stolen moment...

Waiting on the words from the good book...

This was the look on her face with her first glimpse of Ben... True Love...

It was 1000 degrees out...The flowers were wilting fast, but we were able to get some really great shots before we all melted in the heat!!
This little one kept his cowboy hat on throughout the whole wedding. He was so cute blowing bubbles and dancing with that little hat on . Ready to Cowboy Up!!!!!

June 14th, 2008. Their Day...

Ben and Amy

Just a few photos from the wedding I shot this past Saturday. Amy is one of my co-workers and I was flattered when she asked if I would photograph the big day for her and Ben. Besides enjoying being the paparazzi, it was fun to hang out with my friends outside of work. The bride was beautiful, the groom was so handsome, but the kids, they were just so darn adorable!!!

She is officially a senior...Just yesterday I was walking her to her kindergarten class, stuffing her lunch box with extra treats, pushing her on the swing in our yard...Where did the time go?

So what about that "Lost" last night...OMG...Lots of surprises. Now only God knows how long we will have to wait until the next season. What a wonderful cliff hanger. The whole time warp theory is exciting and leaves open all kinds of possibilities, like Jacks dad Christian, I think he is still alive in another time and thats why he was seen on the island, maybe he goes back and forth. {Or is he the Angel of Death, remember he told Michael he could go now...hmmm...go where?? }...Does that mean that there is a possibility that characters like Boone, Shannon, Ana Lucia, and Mr.Echo and even Charlie are alive in another time and could be spared the fate that fell upon them on the Island. We know Sayid loses Nadia, but could he go back in time and get her back, or maybe even get together with Shannon again...Crazy...Which brings us to the final scene of lasts nights season finale...Ben confronting bearded Jack over Locke's body. It seems the Oceanic Six will indeed have to return to the island. But the trick, according to Ben, is that they all must go back, including Locke. Sayid and Hurley shouldn't be a problem -- Sayid busted Hurley out of the mental ward. Kate is angry with Jack, but she's sane enough to be bargained with. Even Locke won't be too much trouble -- we've all seen the wonders you can do with a corpse in the "Weekend at Bernie's" movies. But in one of the most surprising twists, it seems Sun may have flipped to the dark side. After wrestling control of her father's company, we see her meeting up with the evil, evil Charles Widmore in London. It seems Jin's apparent death was too much for her. She's out to get Ben. And what that means for Jack and company remains to be seen. Stay tuned till....2009???? ugh...

Does'nt matter how messy my studio gets when I am scrapping, patterned papers everywhere, flowers scattered all over the project desk, fibers seem to scatter all over the floor, it doesnt really matter...It's always a Beautiful Mess...
