Let me tell you something....when one of the cutest 10 year olds you've ever met asks for your help, you say..."YES!!!! Of course, I will do whatever you want!!"!! ;-)
Seriously, I will!!!
This young lady came up to one day and asked me if I could help her with a special Christmas surprise for her parents. She wanted to get photos of her and her siblings done and framed, they just needed a photographer!! That's where I came in!!!
December is very busy month for a lot of people (including me) (and her family!!!) so getting a time that worked for everyone was very tricky, add to that the subterfuge necessary to keep the parents in the dark made this a very crazy, tricky undertaking!!!! Not to fear though!!! Where there is a will, there is a way!!!! Usually....
We ended up meeting after church one day (so everyone can be "dressed up") and snapping a few (well, more like 150) shots to get a good variety for them to choose from!! I have my favorites....I still have no idea which ones they chose for their gift to their parents, but I know for a fact that their parents were surprised (YAY!!) and that they LOVED the surprise!!!! (YAYAYAY!!!)
The one responsible for this whole undertaking!!!
She. Is. Fabulous!!
Sweet kids....SO thankful I got to b a small part of this!!
There was also some fun to be had (of course!!)......We are trying to work out some posing ideas here.
Then this happened!!! HAHAHAAHHA!!!!! He is such a great big brother!!!
Again, I am so thankful to be a small part of this big idea!!!!
It is no small matter to have people depending on me to bring them photos to give as gifts!! There is always an element of fear of the unknown and fear of failure.
God is good though, and so far I have been blessed!
