a step back

This weekend I took some time out and enjoyed my family and the beauty of Nature. My niece and nephews were with us for the weekend. I set aside one on one time with each of them. My purpose was to spend quality time capturing the beauty of their individuality. No set props, no specific clothing, no special attention to hair detail or shoes. Just their natural beauty---so I grabbed the camera and here are my favorite pictures of each of them!

~The Youngest~


Actually, my favorite of her is below---but you cant see her pretty eyes in it.

Here are all three


Next, I took a walk around my home and captured the beauty of God’s creation. When you take the time to look, that beauty is EVERY where. His majesty is displayed.






All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.

Today, I encourage you to take a walk around your yard or neighborhood and absorb all the beauty God has given us. Kneel down and study the bloom of a flower. Look in the trees at the birds. See what you can discover.


  1. I love the pics, but I must say the Hummingbird pic is really cool! You can see detail in the wings...Love it! - KB

  2. I love your pics! Looks like a great time of reflection and enjoying.

  3. I think too many people get all done up for pics. I love these because you don't have to look beyond all the fake pose and stuffed bears to actually see the beauty in kids. Very fun.

  4. These pictures are GORGEOUS!!! You have a gift girlie! I'm with Amy... I don't much care for the posed pics. I'm so not about the fake stuff. :) Pictures are to catch truth in action. Thanks for sharing your gift with us :)
