Our Christmas Card

Paul & I took some pictures for our Christmas cards. I didn't realize how much my belly has popped until I was looking through these photos - how fun! I also have to share pics of my FAVORITE puppies!! They have been our babies for the last 6 years and I can't imagine not having them around. Just wait til Baby DeYoung gets here... they have no clue what lies ahead.

Paul & I went Christmas shopping this weekend. We got most of it done - yea! What was most fun was Paul put on Christmas tunes for us to drive around to. I love the Christmas season! I have to admit, I do miss snow. The word from the great north is that Michigan has some right now. The last two years we have gone home for the holidays, they have snow before we get there and after we leave, but not while we are there... grrrr. I told my family that they need to work really hard to keep it around this year. I hope all of you are enjoying this Christmas and holiday season.

God bless ~ amy

Carrie & Bryan ~ Clearwater, FL 11.24.07

Carrie and Bryan are two very special individuals that God has obviously brought together in perfection. Carrie's sisters band played at the reception - I love live music at weddings! Especially when they are really talented and make the evening so much fun for all!! Carrie is an amazing musician herself - check out her website here. And those adorable boys you see in the images, they are Bryan's sons and such handsome little men.

I want to say a big thank you to my awesome Florida assistant, Chayil. She also captured some of the great shots featured in the slideshow, so be sure and take a look. Thanks for all of your help! I so appreciate you!!

Carrie & Bryan - thank you so much for including me on your very special day. It truly was a God thing and a true honor. CONGRATULATIONS and God Bless!!

Jennifer & Urmit ~ e-session Ybor City, FL

Here is another session from Florida... Jennifer and Urmit's e-session. I was so excited that they agreed to meet in Ybor - one of my favorite places to shoot in Florida! We had fun wondering the streets finding hidden treasures throughout downtown Ybor City. Congratulations Jennifer & Urmit!


Kim & Bob ~ Bok Tower Gardens, FL 11.22.07

Kim and Bob invited me along for their very intimate ceremony on Thanksgiving day... with only Kim, Bob, Bob's daughter Jillian, the officiant and I in attendance. What an honor! I even signed as a witness. They wanted to have a private ceremony at the beautiful Bok Tower Gardens. What a gorgeous place! Following the ceremony, we ventured around the gardens to capture lots of images.

Thank you so much for including me as a part of your special day. Congratulations Kim & Bob!
