New Beginnings

First days, first days. This past week has been hectic, exciting, and a complete blur. I feel like the guy backstage, unseen, making sure everything goes off without a hitch.
Paislee started her second year of pre-school. Last year she only went two days a week but this year she's a big girl! She was pretty darn excited to get back to it.

Little Miss wasn't the only one starting a new chapter. William officially left his job of 5 years to serve his hometown as City Marshall!
Poor guy's got a lot on his plate and a huuuuge mess to clean up. I'm praying that with time he'll enjoy being chief as much as he enjoyed being a county deputy.
Yep, here's my man. <3

Last but not least, my beauuuuuutiful cousin, Sydney, got MARRIED! Both of the girls walked down the aisle along with Syd's gorgeous daughter, Avery.

 She was quite possibly the most stunning bride I've ever seen. Much happiness and love to Tony, Syndey, and baby Aves!

I'm sleepy. Here's some snapshots from the rest of the week.

Hot, hot, sizzling summer

Wow! It's stinking HOT outside! It's miserable to be in the sun for too long. The temperature only got up to 99 degrees today and I felt like it was a huge relief compared to the 112+ days we've been having. After 2 weeks of scorching heat I feel like I'm getting used to it.
The past weekend was amazing with good friends, great family, and the unusually hot but never disappointing county fair! Don't misunderstand, we didn't do anything spectacular... But I enjoyed my frozen cheesecake, shaved ice, roasted corn, and onion blossom just like every year. The heat didn't put a damper on the festivities like I thought it would.
The only downside was that it was a little too hot to carry around my heavy camera so I didn't get as many pictures as I wanted.

I've been wanting to blog for about a week now but between the fair and working and haven't had  lot of time. So I made a little extra time to take the girls out for a sort of "photo shoot."
I don't mean to brag but, boy are they beautiful or what?? :)

I'm really excited for this fall! Not only am I looking forward to "light jacket" kind of weather, but I have the honor of shooting not one, but TWO sets of engagement pictures! I won't be getting paid much, in fact not at all for one and the other is against my will. Either way I am so honored to get to do so, I'm confident they'll turn out amazing!
I'm such a sucker for love...
