Friday Randoms

I thought I'd share just a few random things to round out the week. :-) 
Happy Friday Everyone!

1.) I had the privilege of shooting a few photos for my friend Holly and her sweet family this past weekend. I have to admit, I was a little nervous as I hadn't ever taken pictures for anyone other than family and I am by NO means, anywhere near close to being a professional. I practice a lot and read as often as possible and have only taken one beginner class, so I'm really just starting the learning process. However, I was really pleased with how the photos turned out and I'm glad they were happy with them as well. Here are some of my favorite shots.






2.) I got my hair cut and colored last night. I went a little blonder this time around. I love a little change every once in a while.

3.) I've been reading this blog for some time now and following along as they journey through an international adoption. Their story is so wonderful and they are actually in China right now adopting their beautiful daughter. Ashley's posts are so beautiful and her pictures are amazing! Reading her posts this week, as they adopt their daughter, have been both moving and humbling. I highly suggest heading over to her blog.

4.) I'm looking forward to the upcoming Labor Day weekend! We don't have any definite plans yet, but I'm sure we'll be spending some time with family and we're having food and fellowship after church on Sunday, which is always a good time. ☺

So thats all my randoms for today. I hope you all have a great long weekend!

I'm sure the family loves the shots you took. It is scary doing photos for others! I'm following that blog as well, very touching story! Have a lovely weekend. Joining you from Friday Fav.

I just beginning to feel a little more comfortable doing photo shoots for others. I did my first shoot a year ago for a friend. She wanted photos of her 1-year-old daughter. I was so nervous! You did an amazing job! That family must certainly be pleased!! Love your hair too, by the way!
