Our little Monica...All grown up.

This was probably the most special senior session I have done.
I babysat Monica, and she is like a little sister.
I remember her as a toddler, full of energy and couldn't sit still ;)
But she was perfect for cuddling and brought joy to everyone around her...
Now look at the beautiful young woman she has become!
I have tears in my eyes posting these images...Thank you Monica, for asking me to do them!

Watch out world, here she comes...I can imagine the possibilities of this girl!
I dedicate this song to you Moni...Go Light Your World!

Well...I said I wasn't doing any seniors this year, but Matthew came early and here I am, posting seniors :)

As with all boys, Tanner was totally against taking pictures.
It didn't take long before he was telling me what poses to shoot!

I had fun getting back behind the camera in this session.

Whatever path you take, Tanner...Golf...Basketball...Jessica ;) ...

Delight yourself in the LORD
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 37:4

Word-Filled Wednesday - My First!

I discovered "Word-Filled Wednesday" on my friend Carrie's blog. I followed her link to find out more about it, and I just knew I wanted to start this!

What better verse to start this other than the one which I have based Nicholson Photography.

I have always dreamed of being a photographer and teacher. Teaching was a "safer" route for me, so I sought after that goal first. My dream for photography became buried under school, teaching, getting married, building a house, etc.

When we had our first child, Emily, I did her newborn portraits. The photo in this post is one of them. She was my inspiration for Nicholson Photography. It was that session that made me realize the talent God has given me. He put the passion in my heart.

I pray that I can continue to use this blog praise Jesus and share scripture that is meaningful to me.

Beckham at 4 months

Beckham is one of my "Baby's 1st Year" babies...I love when babies learn to grab their feet!

Matthew James Nicholson

All of the birth announcements have been mailed, and I can FINALLY post these portaits of our beautiful  baby boy...

For those of you who haven't realized, I am back behind the camera again! We aren't putting Matthew in daycare until August, so I'll be working around my husband's schedule...If you need a session, just contact me, and I'll see what I can do :)

Family Time

Such a nice way to start the week...
Yes, I know it's Wednesday, but I'm just now getting around to uploading these photos I snapped on Monday afternoon!
We had a nice-EmilyDramaFree-afternoon outside :)
While DaDa mowed the grass (which is finally growing greener!), Momma watered her flower beds...
Emily created artwork for us...
She gets pretty serious about it!
And Matthew napped on the sidewalk...
...with an occasional kiss from Big Sister :)
Ahhhh...If only all afternoons could be like this!

Em's 1st Haircut

Emily had her 1st haircut Saturday!
Waiting her turn...
What is about to happen Momma??
Telling Ms. Danielle she is THREE.
A little excited...A little scared...
Ms. Jamie at Center of Attention
A new bow for being a good girl!
