Fort Wayne, IN Baby Photographer

Meet my newest nephew, Grayson! So happy I had the honor of photographing this little guy. I gush over him but don't you blame me?? SUCH a smoochy boy. Had a difficult time getting all three of the kids together to smile with his action Jaxon big brother running around. But I managed to grab a few. Had to wait to post until after Mother's Day since it was a present to the grandmas.

I love my family. SO BLESSED <3

Mikalya's Maternity Session http://bloomingtree.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/4/mikalyas-maternity-session A couple of weeks ago I had to opportunity to dust off my photography skills since I feel like I haven't used them ALL WINTER. It felt good to get out and start shooting again. It was a beautiful, warm and breezy day. Ya know, when it actually felt like SPRING out :) 
Can't wait to meet baby Calhoun. He will be quite the charmer, I am sure. BABY BOYS are so FUN!

365 Images "A Time to Sow": Fort Wayne, IN Fine Art Photographer http://bloomingtree.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/9/365-images-a-time-to-sow-fort-wayne-in-fine-art-photographer 12/365
"A Time to Sow"


Ok, ok. So I'm TERRIBLE at this 365 day image challenge. When you are a working wife and mom it is HARD. But, since Fall is now here,
here is an image to warm your heart and put you in the Autumn mood.
Last weekend I took my boys to the Johnny Appleseed Festival. It is our annual tradition (minus last year when I was just too lazy to go. Crowds. I hate them!)
I always enjoy the smells and the scenery (and the weird people. Don't judge! You know you like to people watch, too!)
But what I love even more are the colors. So warm. So inviting.
It screams "go eat a caramel apple right now!"
The beauty of God's creation is all around us.
Just think about it.
How amazing that the leaves can turn and fall, only to regrow again in the Spring?
Isn't that how life is? You die a little bit
You go through the yuckiness of life.
But then a new season comes and the dead is brought back to life.
It's a time of Harvest for me.
For a long time I have felt dead. Like I was in a standstill, in a valley in a dry season.
But all of those seeds that were planted started to grow....
even in the darkest and driest valley.
And the time has come now where it's time to harvest what was planted so long ago.
I have planted so many "seeds" the last few years and I felt like there would never be a day when I will see an abundance from that planting season.
But thank God for His provision.
Thank God for his mercies.
I can see now that the seeds I have planted and sown for so long have finally grown and I didn't even know it.
And now it's time reap.

365 Images "Stay": Fort Wayne Children Photography http://bloomingtree.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/9/365-images-stay-fort-wayne-children-photography 11/365
"Stay"

 

Precious boy,
please stay little forever.
You are my 2nd born
my baby.
You are growing up too fast.
I wish I could make time stand still for just a moment.
Moments like this is what I live for.
I cherish these memories.
Because in a blink of an eye you will be gone
and on your own.
But for now I will enjoy this.
This moment of pure joy.
God-
Protect my boys.
Guide them.
Direct them.
Lead them down the right path.
And may they never forget the Love you have for them.
Never.

365 Images "Glass Half Full" http://bloomingtree.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/9/365-images-glass-half-full 10/365
"Glass Half Full"

 

Is your glass half empty?
Is your glass half full?
Bad times come.
You travel through valleys.
There are days that you don't think you can take one more step.
But, is your glass half empty?
Do you feel hopeless?
Or is your glass half FULL?
Do you take the hard times and grow from them?
Stay positive.
Keep moving.
God has a bigger plan than you.
Fill up that glass and keep it half full.

"A New Season"

 

I was reminded today that Fall is just around the corner.
Although it feels a lot like summer still
The colors are changing
and the days are getting shorter.
Vibrant colors.
Cool evenings.
Crisp, cool air.
I look forward to cooler days
and brightly colored leaves as they fall.
I am reminded that every season comes and goes.
We are entering a new season
and a new season of life.
I am looking forward to fresh beginnings
and new adventures.

"Change"


 

I skipped yesterday because, well, life just got crazy...
and that's ok.
The world moves on :)

This week I made a big decision.
I decided to accept a new position at another company.
I made the decision to move on from the preschool and step into a new career.
I am excited for the opportunity, but scared as well.
I went to bed very unsure. I had mixed feelings and was anxious.
"Did I make the right decision?"
"What if I fail?"
"What if I'm not good enough?"
And then I saw this butterfly outside of my house.
So beautiful.
So peaceful.
And it reminded me of what a butterfly represents.
It represents resurrection.
Endurance, change, hope, and life.
All which I am about to experience as I take this next step into the unknown.
Change is scary.
Change is good.
There is hope for my future and there is life.
And as long as Christ is in me, I can do anything.
I am made new.

365 Images "By Faith": Fort Wayne Fine Art Photography http://bloomingtree.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/9/365-images-by-faith-fort-wayne-fine-art-photography 7/365
"By Faith"

 

Reading and studying the scripture tonight.
I'm having to make some big decisions.
Tough decisions.
New doors are open
and it's time for me to step in.
But fear overtakes me and Satan says
"Nope. This is not for you."
I stop dreaming.
I stop believing.
I get comfortable.
And then doubt sets in.
I doubt God.
I doubt is plans.
And I become afraid.
Afraid of change.
Afraid of failure.
But then God reminds me that
all I need to do is have faith.
Live by faith.
Walk by faith
and believe.

Sweet Nectar: Fort Wayne, IN Fine Art Photographer http://bloomingtree.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/9/sweet-nectar-fort-wayne-in-fine-art-photographer 5/365
"Sweet Nectar"
 

Today, while running my garage sale I got bored.
I am embarrassed to say that I have terrible weeds!
But, not all weeds are ugly!
I found a fly eating nectar from this weed.
Weeds are known to be ugly beasts!
But, instead it is beautiful.
Something beautiful can come from something so ugly.
And the only ugly I see is....
that nasty fly :)

Into The Woods: Fort Wayne, IN Fine Art Photography http://bloomingtree.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/9/into-the-woods-fort-wayne-in-fine-art-photography 4/365
"Into the Woods"

 

Sometimes life is scary.
You are sure of the unknown.
You aren't sure what path to take
as every path seems different.
But God knows the right path for you.
He will lead you.
He will guide you.
And you will feel at peace.
You will never fear
Because He is always there.
Guiding you.
Directing you.
And making your path straight.
So walk and fear not.
For He is with you.
