Several weeks ago - oh dear, it was more like a month ago - I was blessed, honored and privileged to take Amanda;s senior pictures. God blessed us with overcast, but still bright skies, and even a snowstorm one day! Amanda was such a trooper – you would never know that temperatures were literally freezing for all of the photos. :) It was more of a joy than I could have possibly imagined, and our friendship was deepened so much through this visit. This girl is absolutely amazing, a fabulous friend, a great daughter and big sister, fun loving, and full of joy. She makes my life happy, and I love her so much. I shot too many photos over the few days I was there, but here are my favorites. Most of these images are very lightly edited, but I plan on doing more with them soon.
Mrs. Richter got this of the two of us.
Amanda with her horse, Hy-C.
Hy-C wasn't perfectly cooperative, so that made for a fun and interesting challenge. We were grateful to have another friend (Hannah) help us out!
After Amanda kissed her, she pulled away and said, "Eww. That didn't taste very nice."
I had envisioned this photo for weeks and weeks, and was SOOO excited with the way it turned out!
My "best of the best", favorite shot from the whole week. She was looking at her dad as he walked up, so this image was completely unplanned and un-posed. Love, love!
Just curious, do you like B&W or color, and why?
With this shot, I was trying to be “creative” and do something different. I did not like it at all on the camera and actually considered deleting it, but I’m so glad that I didn’t!
This one is just for laughs. :)
God surprised us with a perfectly gorgeous snowstorm one morning. It was perfect!
I took about 15 minutes of our precious and limited time to do her hair...and then it didn't work out anyways. This is why I will never be a hair stylist, y'all. :)

This shot was taken in a cemetery, but we loved the background. :)
That's all for today, friends. Have a blessed week. May it be filled with Christ and His power.
