Another Weekend Update

Hello my lovely friends! How was your weekend?

Ours was a busy one, but a great one! We were definitely not ready for Monday to roll around so quickly!! Here's what we were up to:

Friday we helped a friend put together some furniture in his new apartment, which is located in our building. We spent several hours hanging out, helping him unpack a little, drinking some good German beer and eating pizza! Yum.

Saturday we headed for a day trip to Limburg, a town about 40 minutes away. Limburg is an adorable little medieval town and of course I captured a couple of pictures.





A wine festival was going on in Limburg this weekend, and as no surprise, we stopped to try some local trocken Riesling. This vineyard/winery Mohr had a very tasty wine, which we enjoyed for the rest of the afternoon.



After we left Limburg we headed back toward home, but stopped on the way so I could capture a couple shots of Jon. I was trying some new things with my camera in preparation for my shoot on Sunday. Here are some of my favorites.

Sunday was the day of my shoot with Georgina, Josh and their new baby Addie. I got up early, jotted down a couple of notes to remember while taking the shots and we headed out at 10:30 to meet up with them. It was a beautiful day outside and I was extremely happy for the great weather! We did several shots inside and then made our way outside to a near by park to take some outdoor shots.

I took over 450 pictures during the shoot and afterward spent the rest of the afternoon and into the evening looking through them and editing them. For my first attempt at this, I was really pleased with the outcome. Althought I have A LOT to learn, I had a such a fun time and I look forward to taking more pictures. I can't wait to show them to Georgina and Josh! I hope they're very happy with their photographs.

Check back tomorrow, I'll be posting some of my favorite pictures from the shoot.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. This week is a busy one, full of softball games and tournaments.

I'll leave you with a sneak peak.
Isn't this the most precious face:


Have a great Monday everyone!
