Before we headed out to do Nate&Ashley’s engagement session last weekend, we stopped at a local library to grab some graduation shots of Nate in full cap and gown. He graduated from Penn State in December, but has been in Virginia for an internship so he missed the chance to do graduation photos. And though we did manage to get some traditional portraits, this shot has to be my favorite…

Good-bye 2008. I can’t say that I’m sad to see you go. It has been a year full of trials… dealing with the mystery freak illness, a change of jobs for both Kev and myself, Chloe’s recent injury, and the heartbreaking loss of my father… It is safe to say that this year has been the most challenging of my life.

And it followed a year that had been full of such joy and celebration… A year that started in Mexico as we spent two weeks in the sunshine and said our vows on the beach surrounded by family and friends. A year in which I discovered my passion for photography. A year in which we grew into our relationship as husband and wife. A year in which we celebrated Kev’s 30th birthday in San Francisco, his dream vacation. A year in which we bought our first house. What a contrast. Life truly is a rollercoaster. And I feel confident that in 2009, I’m on the way back up… 

  • AmandaD - HAPPY NEW YEAR to you guys too! I”m sure this year will be much better 🙂

  • Rachel - You are right, life is a crazy roller coaster. I bet 2009 will be great for you! Happy New Year!

Ok, so I’m a day late. But I couldn’t not post the weekly dose of the cutest. pups. in. the. world. Today we received some bad news. After noticing Chloe favoring her one back leg, Kev took her to the vet. We found out that she has a luxating patella. From what I’ve read, this basically means that her knee cap has moved out of it’s location. And it requires {an expensive} surgery. Poor Chloe.

Here’s a photo of her and Kevin snuggling in the morning. I’ve posted it before but it’s one of my favorites…  

And Lucy, completely intrigued by her own reflection. Ha. Gotta love puppies…

  • Christy - So precious!

Yesterday I got to meet up with Ashley and Nate to take some engagement photos. They just got engaged on Christmas! {Congratulations you two!} They’re adorable together and have so many exciting things going on right now… the engagement, a college graduation, a move to Virginia, a new job, and a birthday on Tuesday. {Happy Birthday Nate!} Wow. 

The weather was less than cooperative but we braved the ickyness and ventured outside. Poor Ashley was wearing short sleeves and freezing her butt off! But we had so much fun. I hope the goosebumps were worth it… =) 

I love that even though Ashley is not in focus in this shot, you can still see her big ‘joker smile’ as she looks at Nate. So sweet.
