Nature's Lucky Moments?

Sometimes you are just at the right place at the right time — you know what I mean? I was visiting some family and was just leaving when this butterfly appeared in her flower garden. I’ll give you three guesses what I┬áhad in my car? What! You guessed the first time … seriously, you guys […]

I found your site but don’t know how, I would have to hit the back button a bunch. But I really enjoyed it. Beautiful pictures and agree with you on the pictures that are just being right time and place. Some of my favorite of mine lately was with a point and shoot but had beautiful morning light. Enjoyed your wedding pictures and got a few ideas for decorating for an upcoming shower.

It sounds as if that thunder storm was your alarm clock and that beautiful rainbow was waiting. You’re right, God does always have a plan.

Opening my ears and eyes,

I think luck favors those who are talented, diligent, and tuned in to the whispers of God. You are one lucky gal.

I LOVE that butterfly and hummingbird shots! They are awesome! I love macro!

thanks so much for the comment on my blog! It really touched me! And it is always inspiring to hear people struggling to have babies, and know that they got their happy ending. It helps me relax a little ­čÖé

Jake and Katie's Wedding

Congratulations to the family cause another Mouser just got hitched! Jacob, Mark and Vickie’s oldest, just married his true┬álove, Katie Sacht, and the wedding couldn’t have been more beautiful. They married at Sawtooth Winery in Nampa, and while it was a long drive getting there, it was a drive that was definitely worth it in […]

Looking at those pictures just made my day (or night as the case may be.) There was a lot of joy, family togetherness, happiness in the presence of dear friends, communion with the saints that have gone on before and hope for the future in the faces of those darling kids. Your feel for composition helps; I’m a big fan of technical skills and boy are your skills developed. But the joy in the pictures comes through so strong that I couldn’t help from feeling joy myself.

Cathie, as always, thanks for the encouragement.

FairlyCandid.wordpress.com - August 4, 2011 - 1:12 PM

Very appreciative of your comments Vickie. I’m so glad you loved them altho how can you not look at ANY kind of picture of your baby on his wedding day and not think they are wonderful! He was, they are, and can you even believe you have a married son. Geez, when did we get this old?

Your Man - August 6, 2011 - 8:06 AM

Wow, you always seem to capture a moment or special pic . Only wish you were in more of the pic. Will have to work on that! Love you always.

Thank you, Mary, for capturing the sweet and fun spirit of Kate and Jake’s wedding through your pictures. The pictures are beautiful, and your way with words helps to relive the special evening. I appreciate your time in helping to preserve the memories made on their wedding day. Kate picked a wonderful family to marry into when she picked Jacob!

FairlyCandid.wordpress.com - August 10, 2011 - 3:15 PM

Thank you Rebecca. The wedding was at 7:30 pm so light was at it’s best. I wish I could have stolen Jake and Katie away into the grape fields for some shots in the late evening light … but they had a party to attend!

Tara - August 10, 2011 - 7:39 PM

These are gorgeous! She made a beautiful bride! The wedding looks absolutely gorgeous too!
