This past weekend, Kali and I were honored to shoot a local wedding. The two flower girls were just precious!
They made it onto the runner and stopped as soon as they got to the first bunch of people.
They eached grabbed a handful of silk flower petals and tossed them onto the ground.
Then another . . .
. . . then another. (I love the way Kali is laughing in the background :)).
The bride's father finally talked them into moving on down the runner as everyone laughed and smiled at how cute they were!
And they proceeded on to the front, making a lovely escort for the bride and her father to follow.
It is definitely hard work being a flower girl . . .
. . . but someone has to do it. And do it they did! So sweet and beautiful!

Recently, Kali and I were visiting family near Atlanta, and we took a side trip one afternoon to shoot some photographs. They understand my passion for photography and always find me something interesting to work with.
This particular bridge is part of the Georgia Historical Society.
We parked at the foot of the bridge and started walking around. Kali found this awesome cross shadow in the muddy waters. I am always looking for interesting cross photo-ops, because of the name of my blog :).
This is an actual working bridge which covers this river.
This is what it looks like as you enter the bridge on foot.
If you read the sign pictured above, it detailed the town lattice design of the bridge. You can see that very clearly in this shot of one of the inside walls. If you look closely, you can also see the individual shingles through the beams of the ceiling.
I didn't really feel safe walking through the bridge. This is shot with the camera pointed down towards my feet - you can see the space between the boards and the river rushing by underneath.
I opted not to ride across the bridge. Sandy offered to drive but, like I said, it didn't feel safe. So, we walked across. This shot was taken coming out the other end.
I primarily took this shot for the Johnny's girls :).
Looking back at the bridge.
In case you didn't read the sign in one of the above photos, this bridge was built in the 1840's by a freed slave. He built many bridges, this being the only surviving bridge of the town lattice design. The criss-crossing web of wooden planks are connected at each intersection with approximately 2,500 wooden pegs. The Red Oak Creek covered bridge is the oldest and longest wooden covered bridge in the state of Georgia.
It is amazing to me that something that looks so not sturdy . . .
. . . is actually traveled across and used on a regular basis.
The area around the bridge was indicative of the general location. So vibrant and beautiful.
(It's getting where I can only get decent photos of Kali when she doesn't know I'm taking her picture - lol!)

Meet Casey's family :). . .
. . . the twins. . . (I'm loving those blue streaks! She's a girl after my own heart!
. . . the newest girl. . .
. . . and her boy. He's a sport model! All boy, and absolutely no interest in taking photos!
Climbing trees was definitely on the agenda because this is the tree-climbing park. You have to climb a tree. It's written on the fence! Just kidding.
It's one of those fun requirements - lol!
This was one great baby. She didn't care where we sat her, placed her, stuffed her, or who we handed her to - she smiled and was joyful.
Then we headed over to the rails-to-trails bike path to take a few shots. It was deserted during the day.
It's the perfect place for a run. . .
. . . or a family walk. No cars allowed!
We had a great time. We had a bunch of high energy kids and two tired grownups - counting me :).
Plus a couple cousins thrown in - lol!
One of my favorite shots of the day - we finally get everyone looking at the camera. Everyone is looking and somewhat smiling, and I get ready to click the shutter. Then, the baby lets us know that she is all finished - lol! What a hoot! OK, photo shoot over!

My friend, Pam, had this video on her facebook this morning. I love the song (and the Crabbs) and it goes so well with my blog title and thoughts. Thanks, Pam! And, thank you Jesus!

Isn't she beautiful? This was such a fun shoot. I have been wanting to do pictures with her for some time. Graduation is fast approaching, and the flower field was blossoming and ready, so we went for it - lol! And, I had a great time :).
