Shelby is Graduating – A Lifestyle Senior Shoot

This girl! She’s gorgeous, kind, and classy beyond her years. I was so honored that she asked me to take her senior pictures. Then she showed up with confetti, glitter, and balloons. Yes! She knows how to celebrate, and we had quite the adventure taking her pictures around Jax Beach.

I’m so proud of you, Shelby!
And you do have MUCH to celebrate this year. Enjoy every minute of it!

What I Wore

What I wore when the weather got crazy cool over the weekend. I was so excited to wear my leopard coat ONE MORE TIME!
And I think that’s it, because today I walked outside in shorts and immediately started sweating.
So long leopard coat. See you around Christmastime!

See that contraption up there? This my friends, is what I call “raising another generation of fit Americans.” :)
Seriously though, why run when someone is willing to pull you around the neighborhood with a bungee cord?
We seriously don’t mean to be the neighborhood entertainment. It just happens.

Speaking of our neighborhood, remember how I told you back in January that we were itching to move to another area of Jacksonville? I thought it was time for a little update: We were actively looking for houses for about 3 months. (It was so much fun, and we had the best real estate agent!) But as we continued searching, I started feeling like Anderson and I weren’t on the same page about listing our house. We needed to sell ours to buy another, so I was ready to put a sign in the front yard. But he was dragging his feet a little. So one night we had a big talk about it, and he said it didn’t feel like the right time to sell our house. We live about 5 minutes from Kingston’s school and 3 minutes from our church – two of the most important parts of our life! And as much as we both want to move, he just didn’t think it made sense right now. The logical side of my brain agreed with him, but the other side, the one that really wants to move, wanted him to just shut up!

That night I took it up with God one more time. I told him that we needed some really clear direction, or we were going to screw this up big time. (Very important side note: We had just registered Kingston for school next year at the same preschool he attends now. But we wanted him in a Monday-Wednesday-Friday class and got a spot in a Tuesday-Thursday class. We were bummed but like the school enough to stay anyway.) So as I was praying that night, I asked God to somehow allow Kingston to get into a M-W-F class if he wanted us to stay in our current neighborhood. I was certain it wouldn’t happen, because the school director had just told me that we weren’t picked in the lottery. Yeah. Guess who contacted me the VERY NEXT DAY to let me know they suddenly had a space for Kingston in a M-W-F class? Yep. The same preschool director. God was so specific and so fast in giving us an answer! He is so unbelievably good! And while it’s not the answer I wanted, I know we’re exactly where he wants us to be… for now. And there’s so much peace in that!

But I have to admit I was bummed when about two weeks later a friend contacted me and said she and her husband are moving and need to sell their house pretty quickly. She knew we had been looking at houses in her neighborhood. And it was so hard to tell her that we aren’t looking anymore. At least not for the next year. Their house is in the exact area we want be in and is just the right size for us. UGH! But honestly, we just want to be where God wants us, and would rather live here than anywhere else if that is his plan for our family. Obviously, it is for now!

Better is one day living in obedience to God than a thousand elsewhere!

The Bedwell Family – A Lifestyle Family Shoot

The Bedwell family is getting ready to expand. (I’m not sure why, but it cracks me up to say that!)
So Baby Jackson is enjoying the last few months of his reign as Only Child!
I love that they decided to have pictures taken during this time… while it’s still just the three of them.

Congrats, Jeff and Lauren! Can’t wait to meet Baby Bedwell 2.0.

Welcome Baby Toby – A Lifestyle Newborn Shoot

Baby Toby is the center of attention at his house these days.
And he doesn’t know it yet, but I think it’s safe to say that his sister is his biggest fan!
