Christmas Time

Making Cookies, WrappingPresents, Decorating, Picking the Perfect Christmas Tree, Spending Time with Family, Sipping Hot Cider, Getting Caught under the Mistletoe, Christmas Carols, Christmas Cards, Snow (unless you live in So Cal), Stockings hung by the fire... all gives you a warm fuzzy feeling inside reminding you it's Christmas Time. 
However, we are quick to forget the Real Reason for the Season which is the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus. We sing about Him (Silent Night, Hark the Harold Angels Sing..),
 but don't think about Him and what significance His life here on earth brings. 
This year I tried to be purposefully focused on the blessing of Christ's birth... it has given me great joy and a thankful heart to God for sending us His Son, to redeem us from our sins. 
What a gracious & loving God we have!
May you have a Merry Christmas with your Families and Loved Ones
 and Remember...

  "For today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord." 
Luke 2:11

Family Portraits: Brianna & Ashleigh

Oh how I Love you two! Brianna asked if me if I would be able to take family portraits for them, I said of course. (of course their family, I love taking pictures of family!) Well Jeff has been working 12 hour days, 7 days a week... and was unfortunately unable to make pictures. It was a beautiful sunny day to take pictures. Next time! However it was great to take mother-daughter pictures. Brianna you are beautiful... and have a doll for a daughter.. I Love to take your pictures... your such a beautiful family!

How sweet a Mother's love is...
Ashleigh was really enjoying  playing around the iron fence... it made for some really cute pictures...

Family Portraits: Tony, Sheila, & Travis

Last week I had the pleasure to take my in-laws pictures. I absolutely love them... they are the best in-laws anyone could ask for. Genuine, Loving, Kind... and the list goes on. 
My father-in-law faithfully pastors a church in Las Vegas, my dearest mother-in-law is a women of many talents she is first a wonderful mother, wife, and grandma, she is a great role model for any women, and my brother-in-law is a junior in high school, he enjoys video games. 
There are a total of four boys, two of which are married(one to me!), 
and one engaged... Travis is the only one still at home.

Live, Love, Laugh..

They told me before we started... we are not very photogenic people... 
And I would have to disagree...

You guys look Great!

 I love this one. Father & Son...

Here's Travis... I've know him since he was seven.. every time I see him he is taller...

 Look at those Dimples! 

I had a great time... What a blessing you all are to me. 
Love you very much!
