This summer my cousin Emily got married and I was asked if I could take some candid photos. I jumped at the opportunity as I needed the experience and to know whether or not weddings would be something I would like to do in the future. Needless to say, it was a lot of work and tons of pressure, but I really did love it. I loved knowing that I was capturing some of the most important moments in their lives. Since then I have done one more wedding, and still really enjoyed it. Here is one of my favorite moments captured from Emily's wedding, I think it really helped capture the essence of the relationship between her and her father.

Beach Fun!

I really wish we would have been able to go to the beach more this summer, I think next summer Dylan will be old enough to really playing in the sand and water. This is one of the photos taken at lake Okoboji when we went to visit the Reuter family. It was such a beautiful evening and all Dylan wanted to do was play in the water, needless to say her outfit ended up in the dryer by the end of the night, haha.

I've Been A Bad Blogger

I feel bad for neglecting this blog, I always intend to post but then it somehow slips my mind. I will try to update more, and that is a promise.

I can't believe how much Dylan has grown, she is definitely not a baby anymore. She has finally started walking everywhere, we thought it would never happen. She has also been surprising us with the amount of signing that she is doing lately, it's so great to be able to communicate with her even when she can't speak the words yet. We've had a lot of fun this summer with pool trips, many weddings, celebrating our first wedding anniversary, and spending lots of quality family time together. I can't believe that summer is coming to an end and fall is nearing. I am trying not to think of starting my college courses again in two weeks, it is going to make for a stressful fall! I'm also happy to say that my business is really starting to pick up. It is a lot of work, more than I ever could have imagined, but I just love being able to make something I love into a blossoming career.  And on that note, I will leave you with a few newer photos of Dylan.

IHF- Got To Wear Shades

I just love this photo too much not to enter it, it's also the only one wear she's not trying to pull her sunglasses off.
