The Runyan Family

I am Leaving for Austin TX tomorrow to visit my friend Tiffany! Madison will be staying here with David, so this will be a nice little break for me. I wanted to get these pictures on here before I left, because I'm sure I will have a bunch to post from my trip.

This is the Runyan family. My friend Rachel asked me if I would take pictures of them, because they know that I am trying to learn my camera and all the editing. I think with every shoot I have learned something new so far. With each one I keep getting better. Which makes me so excited! I have been friend with Rachel since grade school. She is such an amazing person! She is also the one who pretty much put Madison's Birthday cake together for me. This family is all so close with each other, perhaps the closest I have ever seen a family be, which I think is totally awesome! Rachel's sister and brother in law the the new baby are moving to TX this week, so this was the last time the family would all be together for a while. So here is to the Runyan's!

My girl and Me

So here are some photos from last week. I love cloudy days, it makes for great lighting! I realize that since I am always the one behind the camera, I am never in the photos. So I asked David to take some pictures of Madison and I together. :)

I can't believe that it has been a whole year that we have had Madison here with us. It has been so much fun having her around. I just love watching her grow and start to do new things every day. She is really starting to communicate with us so we can sort of understand what she wants. This year has been full of challenges for sure but she is all worth it.

Thanks to Renae for taking her birthday pictures, so I didn't have to worry about the camera! Such a big help. Thanks to Rachel, and Stephanie for helping make such a beautiful cake! Thanks to Mom and Dad for letting us use their house! It was a perfect day with perfect weather.

Who knows with the next one will show up. David is ready now, but I am the one on the fence, seeing that I am the one who has to grow it inside of me! Having Madison to chase around is a lot of work and very tiring so I can only imagine what it's going to be like when I am pregnant.
