Little Miss Mattie! Thursday, Apr 23 2009 

Little Miss Mattie was a beautiful and sweet girl to photograph.  She is very photogentic.  I enjoyed spending an afternoon with her and her mom.  What a blessing it is to capture these beautiful gifts from God.  Here are a few of my favorites.  Hope ya’ll enjoy and have a blessed weekend.  I am leaving for women’s conference and will be away from my computer until Saturday evening, so if you email me I will not respond until late Sat. evening or maybe Monday.

I still have a few avaliable appointments for July and August and Sept.  I can take one more for Oct. and two more for Nov.

Words of Wisdom:  Always laugh when you can.  It is cheap medicine.

Be joyful always.

1 THESSALONIANS 5:16

Lord Jesus, I praise You and love you so much.  I pray laughter on everyone today and pray that each one will find joy and happiness today.  Thank you Lord for everything.  You are such a joy and I am so thankful that I have chosen You to be in my life.  Just use us Lord to reach others.  Amen.

Thanks & God Bless!

One cold afternoon! Thursday, Apr 9 2009 

So here is the family and kidos.  We had a great afternoon with the exception of freezing to death.  The wind was so cold this day.  I enjoyed spending time and getting to know this family.  Family is so important and we should always take time to just have family time.  I hope you make time for your family too.  Here are a few from the session.  Hope ya’ll ejnoy.

Words of Wisdom:  A day hemmed in prayer is less likely to unravel. (God’s little devotional book for parents).

We always thank God for all of you, mentioning you in our prayers.

1 THESSALONIANS 1:2

Lord Jesus, we thank you for our children and I pray for all the little children of the world.  May I lift up prayers of praise and lift up their souls to you Lord.  May you bless them and keep them safe and help us to guide our children to know their Lord Jesus. Amen.

Thanks & God Bless!

Have a blessed Easter and please celebrate Christ this Easter.  I do believe we are living in the last days and I am just awaiting His return.  If you are not ready, I suggest you get ready.

Remember I am having a Matilda Jane Trunk show Sat. evening between 5 & 7:30pm.  Hope you can come.

My church was going to have a team for relay for life but was no able to get everything together so I have something I want to do.  For everyone of my clients that makes a donation between now and May 14th, I will give you a print credit in the amount of the donation.  So you get a tax write off for the donation (you will make checks payable to the American Cancer Society) and I in turn will give you a print credit in the amount of the donation.  You can contact me through here or just give me a call at 318-878-7399. Our relay for life here in Delhi is scheduled for May 15th.!!!

 Thanks & God Bless!!!

Little Miss, Little Miss Tuesday, Mar 24 2009 

I just want to eat her up she is soooo cute.  No, she is beautiful.   I was so worried that we were not going to be able to do this session, the minute it was over it started sprinkling.  We made it through and had a great time. She was a trooper during the session and I just enjoyed her so much.   I loved her Matilda Jane outfits too.  Clothing can really help make or break a session.  This type of clothing “ROCKS”.  www.matildajaneclothing.com   These were some of my favorites from the session.  I hope ya’ll enjoy.

I wanted to announce that for July and August I am going to try this and see how it will go.  I am going to try and only book sessions for those that have one to two children.  The session fee will remain and the minimum order, but you will receive a complimentary 11×14.  The catch is I get to style the session.  You bring your clothing (several items) and I will peace things together or use something I have.  I will style it for either an urban session or a country session.  If you are interested in this please email me at seth2001@bellsouth.net

This will be for ages 2-12 only!!!  No children under the age of two or over the age of twelve.  This is my target ages besides seniors/bridals/and engagments so I am going to do those two months a little different if it works out ok.

Look forward to hearing from those who are interested.  At the end I may have a contest to let others vote and some of the children may be used on advertising materials.  Just have to think this part out a little more so will have to give details later.  I had planned to have a contest anyway, so I think I will use the one’s from these sessions for the contest and tie it all together.

Words of Wisdom:  Will not the Lord’s time be better than your time?  C.H. Spurgeon

God never hurries.  There are no deadlines against which He must work.  To know this is to quiet our spirits and relax our nerves.  A.W. Tozer

He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or periods that the Father has set by His own authority.”

ACTS 1:7 Holaman CSB

Lord Jesus, I would like to thank You for everything and just praise You and draw closer to You.  Lord, help us to realize that your timetable is always better than ours. Amen.

Thanks & God Bless!

Little Mr. Rock Star Tuesday, Feb 10 2009 

This little man is always a blessing to photograph.  He is growing up so fast and let me tell you what, he kept me on my toes.  I was having to move fast.  He is two and he is fast.  I can’t move as fast as I used to and he tested me to see if I could keep up.  I did my best to keep up with him and got lots of exercise doing so.  We had a great time.  I loved his outfits.  I can’t stress enough how much your outfits play a part in the session.  His outfits were awesome, and I just love the rock star theme.  Here are a few of my favorites.  Hope ya’ll enjoy.  Keep my brother in your prayers, he had to have two stents put in today and had a mild heart attack within the last two weeks.  I am so thankful for my wonderful Savior Jesus Christ and I know my Lord is healing my brother.

Words of Wisdom:  Through the ages no nation has had a better friend than the mother who taught her child to pray.

Devote yourselves to prayer; keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving.

COLOSSIANS 4:2 NASB

Lord Jesus, I give thanks to You for everything and just praise Your Name.  Help us Lord to teach our children to pary and worship You.  Amen.

Thanks & God Bless!

Just precious! Saturday, Jan 24 2009 

Look at all the beautiful Children of the world.  It saddens my heart that the world has more concern and respect for the trees than our children.    I am just sad about what turn our nation is taking.  Those of us that are for God need to take a stand and stand up for what we believe in.  We need to pray for our nation like never before.  All that said look at this beautiful little girl.  It is always a blessing to photograph this precious one.    She usually doesn’t want anything to do with having her photograph taken but this time she was by herself and she performed in front of the camera.  Can I jsut tell you I love my job.  Yes this one is from Nov. as well.  I am working on policies/pricing this week and will begin booking end of the week.  I look forward to 2009 and what God has in store.

I took my kidos to see Hotel for Dogs yesterday and it was such a cute movie.  I laughed and cried in it.  I wasn’t expecting that many people to be at the movies but I guess everyone had the same idea.  We wanted to see the 2pm movie and it was sold out and had to kill two hours and come back at 4 to see the 4:30 movie, but it was worth it.  We had a great time.  I suggest you see it.

Words of Wisdom:  The family is the original Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. (God’s little devotional book for parents).

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things……..Put it into practice.  And the God of peace will be with you.

PHILIPPIANS 4:8-9

Lord Jesus, help us to keep our families united.  Please give us the strength to face what is to come.  Help us to lead our children and to teach them right from wrong.  Amen.

Thanks & God Bless!

Are you ready to bowl? Tuesday, Jan 6 2009 

8628-01-12x8texture-blog

Hi everyone and hope ya’ll had a blessed Christmas and New Year!  I have so many things that I want to post but just not enough time to do it all.  My daughter turned three on the second and I have some cute photos of her to share.  I just can’t believe how fast they grow up.  How do you like this weather?  I am ready for spring I tell you.  I am tired of this rain and cold already.  I know several of you are waiting to hear from me and I will be working on policies/pricing later this month and will get that sent out to you towards the end of the month.  I am reserving most of Feb. and the first week of March for my seniors that were not able to get in in Nov.  I look forward to all my sessions this year and for God just to use me for His glory.

Well this family is always fun to photograph and they own Bayou Bowl in Monroe so if you have time go by and bowl.  What better thing to do on these rainy days!  They also own Tummy Yummy which is one of my favorite places in downtown West Monroe.  Check them out at http://www.tummyyummycreations.com/  The stuff there is awesome.  Well, here are a few of my favorites and I hope ya’ll enjoy.  May God bless you all this 2009!!!!

Words of Wisdom:  “The secret of success is consistency of purpose.”  –Benjamin Disraeli

Once you discover your purpose in life, focus your attention there.  Change from generalist to specialist.  You cannot be a perrson of destiny and a jack-of-all-trades at the same time. (Your Bridge to a better future by John C. Maxwell)

This is hard to do because I have always been a person who love to do many things.  I just look at them all as gifts from God and if He gives me a gift I am going to use it to glorify Him.

I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessing.

EZEKIEL 34:26 NIV

Lord Jesus, help us to embrace Your blessings and to always use our blessing to glorify You.  Amen.

Thanks & God Bless!

What a beautiful family this is.  I had the pleasure of photographing the kids a second time but this was my first time to capture the family.  The whole family is just beautiful and it was such a blessing to photograph them.  I get so excited about the people God sends my way and the friendships I buid through meeting everyone.   These are some of my favorites from the session.  I hope ya’ll enjoy and thanks for stopping by.

Words of Wisdom:  Trust God with the deepest dreams of your heart and devote yourself to Him.  Be happy in God, for it is the best thing you can do for yourself and your children.  (The 100 most important bible verses for mothers).

Delight yourself also in the LORD, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.

PSALM 37:4NKJV

Thanks & God Bless!

If you get time go see “bedtime stories” with Adam Sandler.  We went tonight with the kids and it is a great movie.

I’m still here! I am wore out so I am posting two in one here! Monday, Dec 22 2008 

7350-03-blog

It seems like forever since I was here.  I forgot just how busy everything starts to get just before Christmas.  Between school parties, shopping, a funeral (very sad), church, bible study, an awesome prayer meeting last week and then just all the other stuff I have neglected my blog.  I am sorry to those who have been waiting to see their images here.  You are most likely so busy too that you haven’t even thought about it.  I am still not believing Christmas is Thursday.  I haven’t wrapped the first gift and most likely will not have time until Tue. night to do that.  Oh well, I will get it done.  Thanks to all of you who have nominated someone and I will accept nominee’s until Tue.  The decision will be hard for us to make, but everyone so far is well deserving.

Well these sessions were awesome.  I just love my job and thank God for using me.  I enjoyed photographing these siblings.  The youngest one didn’t care too much about having her photo taken, but I managed to get a few of her.  I just enjoyed getting to spend time with them and they just made me laugh.  Here are a few from the session and I hope ya’ll enjoy. 

Please remember Christ this Christmas because He is the meaning of Christmas.  Now go make cookies, watch a movie (a Christmas Story) and read a book about the true meaning of Christmas to your children.  I hope everyone has a blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year.  I will be back to post the winner Christmas Eve.

Words of Wisdom:Practice thankfulness in every area of your life, and you will find concerns melt away.  (The 100 most important bible verses for mothers book).

Don’t worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks.  And God’s peace, which is so great we cannot understand it, will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

PHILLIPPIANS 4:6-7 NCV

Lord Jesus, help us to all give thanks to You.  Help us to teach our children thankfulness in every area of their lives.  Amen.

Thanks & God Bless!

Now I know you recognize this cutie.  I have photographed him about three times now.  I tell you what I am just watching him grow up too fast.  He is just too cute and I tell you what, he is just turning into a little model in front of the camera.  I did a lot of his in a more urban look since that is what I was going for in most of his photos.  I surely enjoyed getting to capture these of “Mr. D” again.  He is always a pleasure to photograph.

Fun family time! Sunday, Dec 7 2008 

0142-02blog

What a beautiful family.  And you all know I love red heads.  This whole family was photengentic.  I enjoyed getting to know them and spending the afternoon with them.  Thank you so much for allowing me to capture these memories of your family. I am so thankful everyday for the people God places in my life.  Here are a few from the session and hope ya’ll enjoy!

Words of Wisdom:  Think of the sacrifice your mother had to make in order that you might live.  Think of the sacrifice God had to make that you and your mother might live.(God’s Little Insturction Book for Mom).

This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

1 JOHN 4:10 NIV

Lord, help us all to understand the love You have for us and help us to love others.  Amen.

Thanks & God Bless!

Little Mr. “L” “Country Boy” Monday, Dec 1 2008

*Double click horizontal photos to view larger*

This family is just precious and everyone has been very patient waiting on me to get caught up.  Even though I took December off from taking photos, I will be proofing the whole month of Dec./placing orders/ and checking orders in.  I am praying that I will be caught up by the week of Christmas though.  I am going to spend some great quality time with my family.  I have been making myself do that every weekend lately. 

I had a great time photographing this family and this little country boy is just too cute.  I hope ya’ll enjoy these from the session. 

Remember the “Awakening” service Sat. night at 7pm.  Please check out my announcments (to the left column of the blog) for the details.  Come see what amazing things God can do for you.

Words of Wisdom:  God sends children for another purpose than merely to keep up the race–to enlarge our hearts, to make us unselfish, and full of kindly sympathies and affections.(God’s Little insturction book for mom).

My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

1 JOHN 3:18

Lord, help us all to enlarge our hearts, make ourselves unselfish, and fill us of kind sympathies and affections.  Amen.

Thanks & God Bless!
