The Kovach Family | Mishawaka, IN

The Kovach's are dear friends and I must say, they're incredibly adorable and so much fun to be around.

We ventured out in the frigid temperatures a few weeks ago, to snap a few family photos and what troopers! They make cold look good! ;)

Their little one Orion is a little charmer and their oldest Jaxon is such a little gentleman - and Matt and Michelle - they are oh so sweet in so many ways.

Had a blast spending some time with them!

Richard & Gina are Having a Baby!

I've known beautiful Gina for many, many years.

We recently reconnected via Facebook and I'm so very thankful we did! :)

Gina, and her so in love with her husband Richard are expecting a little girl VERY soon. I was lucky enough to be able snap some photos of them before her arrival!

These two are gorgeous, inside and out - and I could certainly tell, even after being married 5 years, the 'spark' is still there. ♥

Congrats you two!

Time Out

It's amazing how time goes at this warp speed. It's like you have these plans, and things you want to accomplish, but time some how, always interferes.

When I was 'growing up', the only thing I ever thought about was 'growing up'. Why at such a young age, do we want to 'grow up'? I ask myself that question - a lot. The days seem endless when we're young. Now, they pass by us, at lightning speed.

As I've lived - as I've learned - time is most certainly, so short these days; my desire is to cherish every moment - to never take ANYTHING for granted. After all, we're not promised tomorrow. And if it were my time to go today, I wouldn't want to look back on my life and see a sea of regrets.

I sit and think about all of the amazing blessings in my life. I watch my son Eli, growing up right before my eyes, and I'm simply amazed by him. I can't say it enough that he is the JOY of my life. I'm so lucky God thought enough of me to let me become a mom. WOW. What an amazing gift.

I marvel at this life - the people in it; the ups and downs - the sometimes daily struggle to just be the people we are. Life shouldn’t be about the things we don’t have, but about the things/people that are right in front of us. It’s a shame it takes us so long to figure that out. But, perhaps that’s why new beginnings and second chances are a part of it all - why we're given this precious gift of TIME - even when being a grown up is a little difficult some days - even when time goes by, at warp speed.

We will always dream of hope, of change…yet, there is so much struggle for meaning, for purpose, and only in the end do we find it in each other…in the fantastic, in the mundane, the simple human need to find a kindred, and to know in the end that we are not alone…and that all we need is each other.

My son Eli will be a year old, Dec. 12th. Amazed at how fast this first year has gone. So blessed to be his mom. Can't wait for the many more moments ahead. :)

The Howell Family | South Bend, Indiana

I cannot say enough about this beautiful family. Nate and April have been in my husband and I's life for MANY years. We've shared some AMAZING memories and some pretty big moments! They're some of our dearest and nearest friends.

Their two beauties, Macie and Emma are little dolls. You can most certainly tell how much they all simply adore and love each other. It's quite infectious. These beautiful girls have brought so much joy not only to Nate and April, but to everyone around them. Each has their own personality and character, even at their young ages. They are beautiful young girls and Macie is quite the helpful big sister! What a fighter too! Both are destined for great things, that's for certain!

Was privileged to snap a few family photos of them - and wow - how gorgeous they are, inside and out! ♥
