Tennesse Sunrise

My school has the most amazing views in the morning.  The sky is absolutely beautiful.  I don't think that any picture could ever do justice to how truly beautifully God paints the sky each morning for us.  I do think that this picture could come close though.
Since God displays such vivid views for me every morning I have decided to take a picture of every sunrise that I can every day that we have school.  Maybe by the end of the year I can have a huge collection of pictures to display God's great painting skills!

I just couldn't resist showing off a pictures of my expert snowboarding skills!  Okay, I lied.  I am anything but and expert snowboarder but we can pretend can't we?  Let's just say I did the whole stop, fly, drop, and roll maneuver.  It was quiet funny if not painful the next day.  hehe.  So, how are your snowboarding skills?

Fluffy Snow

This was probably the prettiest snow I've ever seen.
Have I ever told you that I adore Cross Process.  Well, I do.  Absolutely adore it!

Basketball Photographer

A while back the yearbook committee asked me to take pictures at the basketball games and any other school occasion.  Well, this game I just decided that I'd sit and take some pictures and they came out really great!  I mean, not to brag or anything... hehe.

I loved this picture of Isaac and Ross before the game started.

I love these boys!  
Levi, Celeb, Seth, and Paris.

Warming up some more since the other team was an hour late because their bus broke down.

Wow, what kind of face is that?  I love it.  It's so action-y.

This is probably my favorite one.  I love how they all came in, framing Levi in his shooting pose.  It went in the basket by the way.

Go Ross!

My bestie praying to win.

I couldn't resist putting it up in black and white.  It just looks so good!

I'll probably have some more basketball pictures coming up soon.  You gotta love watching your team play.

photoshoot with Abby

Today was yet another snow day, which was perfectly fine with me.  I personally don't want to go back anytime soon.  haha.  Well, after going through every post on Roz's blog Clothes, Cameras, and Coffee I was inspired to go outside and take pictures but alas, I had no model.  So, I called up my friend Abby and we had a ball, as you will see.

This is probably my favorite picture of me in a long time.  

 The picture says it all.

Me trying out the tripod that I never knew we had.  I love it!  Now I can get some pictures of myself in a cute outfit.  I love the shoes.  That's all I gotta say.  haha.

I love these pictures of Abby.  I think they are my favorite picture of the photoshoot.

I really wanted to incorporate the old binoculars in this shoot.  I like it.  Don't you?

Abby. You. Are. Gorgeous.

More binocular shots!

I think I was a little cold. haha.

I have nothing to say about this, so I'll just write this.

Unheard of...

This much snow is virtually unheard of where I live in Tennessee.  We've already used up all of our snow days which has never happened this early before!  Luckily we did get some really good sledding snow but right now we have this wet snow that's perfect for snowball fight!  Mwahaha.  Let's just say that one of my friends got a huge snowball dumped on her head.  On Thursday we played the stop the car, get out, take a picture, get back in, do it again game! 
On Thursday we had the prettiest snow I have ever seen.  This is my personal favorite out of all of my pictures.  It looks like a welcoming winter pathway to who-knows where!

I love this one with the snow and and the beautiful steeple.

 My school blanketed in snow.

I l-o-v-e love this picture!  The sky is so clear and blue and the snow looks so beautiful with the barn.

 Gorgeous {except for that annoying car!}  haha!

Oh, and all of these pictures are SFTC {straight from the camera} and absolutely no editing!  Aren't they great?

iheartfaces-best of 2010

Oh, this was just too hard.  I've taken so many good pictures of friends and family and I've grown so much in my photography over the course of 2010.  I am so grateful that God allowed me to go on the Atlanta mission trip and meet these wonderful kids.  They will forever be held close to my heart as one of my best memories of 2010. 

Head over to iheartfaces to see some more great entries!
