Five Months of Chante

Today I’d like to share with you one of my life’s greatest joys!

About five months ago, God blessed our family with a brand new generation. We have a brand new daughter, niece, and granddaughter, and her name is Chante Brielle! We truly have been en’chante’d. (See what I did there?)


And now here are some of my favorite iPhone photos:

The Troyer Family

Welcome back to this little space! Today I can finally share with you my latest favorite project. The short hour we had together just flew by. We had so much fun! These family portraits are more fun than I remembered! Anyway, meet the Troyer family. TroyerFamily-1_blogTroyerFamily-8BlogTroyerFamily-29_blogTroyerFamily-36_blogTroyerFamily-48_blogTroyerFamily-38_blogTroyerFamily-31_blogTroyerFamily-26_blogTroyerFamily-10_blogTroyerFamily-7_blogTroyerFamily-5_blogTroyerFamily-6_blogTroyerFamily-2_blogTroyerFamily-18_blogTroyerFamily-12_blogTroyerFamily-13_blog

A Tour of Ice Rocks In Autumn, Pt. 2

Ready to see what was at the bottom of the ravine? I was hoping so 🙂

IMG_3506_blogIMG_3511_blogIMG_3519_blogAt the bottom of the ravine was a tiny little waterfall. Not more than a trickle, really, but words and photos can’t do adequate justice to the beauty and peacefulness of the little world at the bottom of the ravine.

After I climbed back up and out of that beautiful, magical world, I jumped back into my van and kept driving. When I saw a little graveyard not far from the road, there wasn’t much that could stop me from pulling over and taking a stroll.

Nothing has the power to stimulate my imagination and curiosity than an old graveyard!

This little nature hike of mine actually came after I photographed a family in the Ice Rocks area. It was even more fun than taking pictures of the beautiful nature 🙂
