Monday Inspiration From Memorycatcher Photography-Kristina Cowan

Good MORNING! It's Monday! I had really debated on keeping this picture for one of my "it's the little things" posts... However, it is Monday and the strawberries were inspiring me... Have I mentioned I love fruit?! Well, I DO! Anyway, I decided to post my strawberries today! :-)

Looking at this picture reminds me of my desire to abide in Christ and bear GOOD fruit! I want MY fruit to RIVAL these AMAZING strawberries! Isn't that a really neat thought?! Remember to abide in Christ today, and make sure you are spreading your good fruit around to others!

Zaydren's Newborn Portraits from Memorycatcher Photography

I have been so excited about this shoot for months now! Zaydren's mom emailed me ahead of time to discuss newborn portraits and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to take them. I love taking newborn portraits. Every baby is unique and special and being given the opportunity to capture that is very special.

Zaydren was only 6 days old for his portrait session, but he was the most alert newborn that I have ever done pictures of. His eyes would actually follow me and my camera around. He looks like such a little man here all propped up wih his hands folded and his feet crossed like he's just sitting back to take a break.

I was sooooo glad that we decided to take pictures in his own little nursery! His Mom did such a good job decorating and making it a cozy nursery!

I had such a hard time picking images out for this blog post, because I think little Zaydren is soooo special, and I had an incredibly fun time with him at the shoot!

Happy Thursday!

Memorycatcher Photography brings you Inspiration Monday! Fireworks!

Happy Monday! I decided to combine Inspiration Monday with a post of fireworks pictures for all of you who might not have had the chance to see the stunning Ft Leavenworth display of fireworks! Enjoy!

First their was the 50 canon salute to each of our states (although this year their were only 49 as the poor announcer accidentally forgot Alaska!)



Then we sat back and waited for it to get dark enough for the fireworks. Here is a random assortment of some of my firework images. :-)

I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Andrea's 8 month old pictures by Memorycatcher Photography

I realized that it had been a while since I took pictures of Andrea. In fact the last picture of her I posted was at the end of a post of Houston's pictures! So a week and a half ago I spent the night at Lindsay's house and took baby portraits the next morning! :-) It was so much fun. I still think she is simply adorable!

OH! And before you ask... I'll tell you the same thing I tell everyone else. NO! We did not make her hair stand straight up it does it all on it's own. :-)

I love all of her little faces she makes. :-)

She actually showed her teeth!

She looks like such a little dreamer here! :-)

YES! She even sat up for me.... just for a minute though. :-)

Have a great night!

Happy 4th of July from Memorycatcher Photography and Family!

Happy 4th of July by: Memorycatcher Photography (Kristina Cowan)

I hope everyone is having a great day celebrating the independence of our country! As an Army brat whose family has served this country and lived the military family lifestyle the 4th of July is a BIG DEAL to me and mine! All of us girls love picking out red, white, and blue outfits for Church every year when the 4th rolls around. Then, we enjoy being red, white, and blue a bit more casually today on the actual 4th. This family portrait was taken yesterday after church. The fourth has always been a fun family day for us and usually involves grilling, having people over, playing games, going to see the FIREWORKS!! :-) And anything else we can CRAM into the day while we are at it!

However, this year as my family is retired my heart is drawn to everyone currently serving our country who due to that fact are unable to celebrate the day together as family because they are out there protecting our freedom. Sacrificing of their time and lives to be there for all of us today and every day. So I want to say a huge THANK YOU to not only the armed men and women of our country, but also their families as they give up 4th of July celebrations, missing birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and being home for dinner at night. :-)

This fourth of July my mind has also wandered to my freedom that is found in Christ. It is so wonderful to know that even though I live in a currently free country no matter what happens to this world I am Christ's and He is mine forever. To know that He will be with me till the end of time and that my true freedom is found completely in Him and not in the status of my country. I may be proud to be an American and proud to have been the daughter of an Army Dad who served for 26 years, but none of that can compare with being a true daughter of the King!

Happy 4th of JULY!!!! What are you're plans for today?!

I decided to post my Monday Inspiration tomorrow because I really wanted to do this post for the fourth today! Sorry! Check the blog tomorrow for the Inspiration post! :-)
