Wordless Wed – Roberts Family Photo Fusion

This is a photo fusion video I produced for one of my photography clients, The Roberts family, as part of their family portrait session. Trailing their toddler through autumn’s splendor was a sweet reminder of how thankful I am for family, beauty and God’s creation of humor....

Wordless Wed – Oakes Family Photoshoot

I enjoyed an afternoon with the beautiful Oakes family capturing family portraits. These boys were such troopers and experts in the arts of saying “cheese.” Thanks Oakes family for a fun autumn photoshoot!    If you’re in the Richmond area, it’s not too late to...

5 Minute Friday – Together

Five minutes. On the word TOGETHER GO: Dependence – It’s a word I have oft dreaded, even scoffed at. I was raised to be independent, self-driven, un-reliant on anyone. I grew up with the understanding that if I wanted something done a certain way, I would just have to do it...

Portraits

and other thoughts on turning 30   Today I pass out of the realm of 20-somethings and into the great beyond. Usually I become very contemplative as the measuring rod for age approaches. I over-analyze my life, my ambitions, my growing saddle bags, my shrinking future. I lament the new...

Three Things/One Word: Timidity

  Timidity consumes. Fear all-encompassing crowds out reason. We begin to believe the lies. Timidity kills any hope of action, creativity or success. Timidity drives away the possibility of real relationship, penetrating friendship and life-changing community. It squelches desire,...

The Polarized Church, Unplugged

blue-lipped awakening I like blueberries a lot. I like them so much that when I get a pint, I want it to last. I dread waking up to find purple-tongued children and an empty carton in the middle of the kitchen floor. (Believe me, this has happened more than once.) And so I hoard. I buy...

Wordless Wed – Agecroft Hall

Early this summer, our family took a trip to Agecroft Hall, a Tudor-style mansion in Richmond, VA.   See more photos of our visit to Agecroft Hall on  the kids enRoute Facebook page or swing by Instagram for even more Wordless Wednesday fun.   Linked up at laugh-quotes.com...

Go Bulk or Go Home

We’ve moved! Ok, that’s not exactly new news. We’ve lived in at least six different places in the last two years. But this time is different. This time, we’ve signed a year lease on a house. A year seems so long to be committed to so much space. A backyard. Three whole bedrooms. A living room...

5 Min Friday-Life. Together. You Belong Here

We sat around picnic tables planning the upcoming year of youth group. These were some of the men and women I respected most in the world. And we would be teaching the truth of Christ to kids from all walks of life. Many would have grown up in the church, their parents loved Jesus more than...

Wordless Wed Video – Truit’s First PB&...

There’s something so grown up about making your own peanut butter and jelly sandwich. In this week’s Wordless Wednesday video, my 4-year-old son makes his first one all by himself. His little sister is not so successful.   Thanks Depui for the soundtrack! Manhood by Depui...

5 Minute Friday – Present and Dancing

It was a dark morning, one of those mornings where the realities of upkeeping a house after living in hotels and apartments for two years begin to overwhelm. The endless dishes, dirty floors, fingerprints on mirrors and doors — I spend more and more time cleaning my expanded space. I...

Photo Junky – Raise Awareness with Your Smar...

For all my fellow photography junkies, Compassion International is hosting an Instagram photo scavenger hunt! Now through the end of July, snap photos from their scavenger list (available here) and be entered to win fun and funky Compassion prizes. Another awesome part of joining the...

“We Have Not Heard” official music video

Check out the latest music video from kids enRoute’s production side of the house: media enRoute. Blogging has taken a back seat this past month as I’ve been storyboarding, shooting, and editing the official music video for “We Have Not Heard.” (This happened somewhere between keeping the kiddos fed, bathed and pre-schooled; house hunting; and having my hubby out of the country for most of the month, but that’s a story for another time.)   This song is from the Ohio based band The Sunrise and follows a couple struggling in their marriage. The song features guitar legend Phil Keaggy and drummer Joe Vitale...
