My first blog banner..

A new blog banner! Thanks to Jeff Arnold for a wonderful photo shoot here at home and in the studio..I was able to actually have a few pictures with my eyes open and mouth shut (well, just not talking but still showing a smile). And a thank you to Savannah, (my 16 year old) who walked (actually stood beside me) through photoshop to make a banner....So Fun!!

Recently, I was in need of some pictures of me to send to the places that I will be teaching. So I began to scour iphotos...My family loves candid pictures but those are not always the most flattering(maybe the most funny...). Little does the family know that many pictures (with me) have been deleted or cropped...I believe I have "rapid blinking syndrome"...In fact the best pictures are the ones with my sunglasses....But that was not requested. So my son suggested Jeff Arnold (He was our children's media pastor up until recently) to come and do a photoshoot...He was willing and the timing was perfect! It was a great reason to get a few outfits and have alot of fun! I will be updating profile pics everywhere..did you know that my FB picture is only 5 years old!!!

Jeff and his wife, Sara, were so fun and truly captured what I had always hoped to look like...He also loved my studio and didn't comment on the amount of stuff but thought everything was cool, especially the ribbon wall!! Here are a few pictures from that fun night...Hope you enjoy!


P.S. I will be showing more pictures but want to savor all of them..until next time..
