Here a few more from my senior session with Jake and his brothers last weekend. There were so many photos, it was hard to choose from. But here a few more of my favorites.

I had the opportunity to take these pics of Ava last week Wednesday. She was so cute! But also very determined to avoid the camera. I did manage to get what I think are some pretty good shots though. I can't wait to take some more pics of her and her brand new sister in a couple weeks!

I had the opportunity to shoot Mike & Susan's wedding yesterday with Doug and Karen Zandstra. Doug and Karen had asked me to shoot with them since Karen is in her third trimester and they weren't sure how'd she do on her feet all day. Here are a few of my favorites so far. I'll hopefully post some more soon.

Church Picnic

Every year our church kicks off the fall with an all church service and picnic. Our church has 4 unique services that come together for one service at least one Sunday a year. We usually hold the service outside, but got rained out this year. Extra chairs were set up and everyone managed to fit in the sanctuary & narthex. And it even cleared up for afternoon games. Here are a few pics from the day.

Storyboards & More

I recently purchased these storyboard templates from MCP templates and greeting card template (one in pink) from Tina Parker (http://mcpactions.com/main.html and http://mylilcreations.blogspot.com/ ). I'm still experimenting, but they are a ton of fun. I will soon be offering the storyboards that can be displayed with your favorite pictures from a session. I'm going to be offering the greeting card templates with some special holiday deals that I will be posting soon!

Traverse City

Darin and I were able to take a couple days off from work last week (I know two weeks in Ecuador wasn't enough vacation) and go up to Traverse City Thursday, Friday and Saturday with my family. This was the first Bursch family vacation we've taken together since Eric was in college and I was still in high school and the first vacation we've taken now that we're "grownup". It was fun to have the whole family together. Here are a few pictures from one of our adventures to pick blueberries. The kids had so much fun and we all ate quite a few blueberries. I especially like the sign we saw when we came in, and i now wish i'd taken a picture. I'm probably not getting it exactly right, but it said something like "eating a few blueberries is OKAY, eating blueberries until you can't eat anymore is stealing. " We ate quite a few, but I still had room :)
