Peewee Cheerleaders

I took pictures last week at the Brookland Peewee Cheer clinic performance. The girls were so great and easy to work with. This kind of job is my favorite!

On the way home from Kenya, we had a 10-hour layover in Amsterdam, so we took a bus/boat tour of the area. It was a great experience; just wish I hadn't been so exhausted from the sleepless 9-hour flight before.

Got to watch how this man makes wooden shoes. Very cool.

Amsterdam was a really interesting place with gorgeous architecture, windmills and waterwheels. Oh, and bicycles... everywhere!

Snow Day

After spending a couple of days gazing out the window at the crisp white flakes blanketing the lawn, I finally ventured out to get some photos of the winter wonderland. The ice and snow made for rough road conditions, but it was a perfect photo opportunity.
Icicles glisten in the sunlight as they hang like jewels from the roof.

The North Face: Snow and ice mixes with green moss on a towering tree in my yard.

Bright berries sit frozen on the branches of this gorgeous crimson tree.

Critters had made their mark in my lawn long before I tromped through it in my snow boots.

Happy Kiddos!

I had a mini photo shoot with my cousins' kids at Thanksgiving. They're some great kids!

Ila Beth is going to be a wonderful flower girl in our wedding in June.

Grey couldn't quite sit still long enough to get his picture made, so I caught him playing outside.

Fuller is the youngest of the crew. I also took some 1st birthday pictures of him that day.

The lovely Eden Belle looks like a model with the wind blowing through her hair.

Animals of Kenya

After leaving Mwingi, we went on a safari at Sweet Waters. We stayed in tents at night and went on game rides during the day. Gorgeous place and incredible animals. It was a photographer's dream.

We got lucky and caught a big group of elephants crossing the road just yards in front of our bus. I think there were something like 26 of them lined up walking one by one. Just like in Jungle Book.

This one got a little annoyed at our bus. He turned and flapped out his ears as if to say, "Don't mess with me and my baby!"
