Florida Sunset

Well, my posting has been sporadic the last few weeks. I'm hoping once we move to Missouri and settle into more of a routine that i'll find my blogging time again.

We're packing again. We've been in Florida enjoying the holidays with the family and catching up with friends but now it's time to move on to Missouri.

We didn't get to see as many people here as we had hoped in our time. We lost a week of visiting with everyone getting sick after Christmas.

Last night I had the fun opportunity to take some pregnancy photos of my friend Sherri and her husband. It was a lot of fun but we got a late start and started loosing our light. But that gave us a chance to get some silhouette shots. Sherri makes the cutest little pregnant lady ever!

We took just over 200 photos in the hour we were out! We had to shoot fast, our light was fading quickly! I'm only showing a couple because I want Sherri to do what she wants with them first. But there are lots more I want to share with you.!

That's baby Samuel in there! I'm sooo excited and happy for Sherri and Jesse. They are going to be awesome parents and I can't wait to hold little Samuel in my arms in a few months!

After freezing our models solid (i was behind the camera so i got to wear my nice warm coat the whole time!) we went home to Geoff  who was making curry for us all and boy, did we sure enjoy that! Yum! It was a fun night even if Ethan was super fussy and wouldn't let anyone but mommy hold him.

Ok, it's time for me to get back to packing.

We're driving up to Missouri. Leaving Friday and hoping to make it there by Sunday morning. Hopefully we don't have to drive in too much snow! I'm not used to that! My mom will drive with the boys and I in our van while Geoff drives the moving van. I'm so thankful my mom is willing to drive out with us!

I'll be thinking of you while you travel.

I can't believe how cold it is even down there.

Even so, your photos are amazing. Can't wait to see more.

You're such a good photographer (plus you had a beautiful model to work with:)

I wish we could have been there, though:(

I am sure you will not be disappointed if you visit one of the most famous amusement parks. This is an especially great holiday idea if you have kids. That is because there are many attractions especially aimed at kids at various ages.
