No one will ever know
the strength of my love
for you. After all,
you’re the only one
who knows what
my heart sounds like
from the inside.
From My Heart
A million stars up in the sky
one shines brighter I can’t deny
A love so precious a love so true
a love that comes from me to you
The angels sing when you are near
within your arms I have nothing to fear
You always know just what to say
just talking to you makes my day
I love you honey with all of my heart
together forever and never to part.
A few weeks back I had the opportunity to photograph a long time friend and former co-worker. We have been through all the ups and downs of growing up and making decisions. I was thrilled when she came to me asking to take some photos of her, her husband, and adorable puppy! I find it so endearing when couples, take the time to cherish one another, capturing the moments of their lives right here and now. Often times it seems, when children are added to the picture, that love and admiration towards one another gets pushed to the side, because so much focus is on the children. For all my followers out there, learn from this couple, even if you have children, take time for the two people who started this crazy, beautiful life! Take time for you.
My Hands Can’t Wait
In just a little while
you’ll arrive into this world…
Will you be a sweet mischievous boy
or Daddy’s precious little girl?
How I can be so in love with just
the thought of you ~~
I offer no explanation.
You simply are a miracle of
God’s own creation.
I promise you my patience, my faith
and above all else my love.
My hands can’t wait to hold you…
my little angel from above.
A couple weeks ago, I had the joy of seeing and old friend and meeting her husband. I could not have been more honored to take their photos, seeing as they traveled from way up North just to have me capture this precious memory of a new baby on the way. This photo shoot was so much fun and every moment you see is a true reflection of this family! I have a soft spot in my heart for them because they have an adorable Shih Tzu that reminds me so much of my own little Nelson. I can not wait to meet their new bundle of joy in a few short months!
“His first breath took ours away.”
I had the privilege of photographing another miracle. All babies are miracles, but some come into the world unexpectedly, not when planned. To have the privilege of capturing those teeny, tiny hearts that take ours away is such a blessing. Baby Ford was born a couple months early and got to finally come home just before the new year was rung in! Myself, along with many others are so happy that baby Ford is finally home, where he belongs. Hugs and kisses little miracle Ford.
A Parents Prayer
~Althea A. Anker
Thank you God for
The children of mine
Who teach me things
That will blow my mind.
They entertain themselves
In the funniest ways.
I pray that the innocence
They possess never goes away.
I pray they will
Grow up and be smart,
And I pray that they will never grow apart.
I pray that they will call home
Whenever they are near a phone.
I pray that they never feel alone.
I hope they turn to you
Through guidance and prayer
And know that you and their parents
Will always be there.
