A senior and his dog

Here is another senior who is headed off to make his mark on the world!  He’ll be back to visit his adorable dog, I’m sure :)











And they’re off

It’s that time of year when kids pack up their things and head off to a whole new world called “college”.  Have fun, and learn bunches!














Simple is Sweetness

Some simple sweetness for your Saturday:


All home

Yes, this lovely family is clad in sweaters.  You’re right, there are no leaves on the trees.  You’re right again, I’m still blogging from last fall.  But you’ll see in a second why this super fun family needed to have it’s fair share of time on my blog :)  Enjoy!

Hooray for cousins!









These two have appeared on my blog before :)

Gorgeous x4…inside and out!



It’s time I heed the advice of so many experienced mothers:  ”Enjoy this time while they’re young.  It goes by so fast.”

I fully embrace the roles I have as a Christian, wife, mom, home educator, and photographer.  I really want to give each role 100% of me, but I’ve tried and found that it’s not possible.  I need two of me.  Ok, so I need 5 of me.  What world wants 5 of me?!?!  Yikes!

Anyway, I’ve been praying for months about slowing down Life in the Light some to take a breather, and it is hard!  I DO so love my job.  However, I must keep my priorities straight, and there is no question in my mind that my other roles must come before my business.  I will keep scheduling current clients that are wanting milestone sessions, and I will be shooting some personal projects.  But, I’ve decided to not take any new clients for the time being.

In in the spirit of enjoying kids while they’re young, I’ll share an image I just edited today.  It was taken almost a year ago.  Sadly, I’m a little behind on capturing my muses.  I love this one :)
