talk to God.

You can talk to God because God listens. Your voice matters in heaven. He takes you seriously...Even if you stammer or stumble, even if what you have to say impresses no one, it impresses God--and He listens. -Max Lucado

McKenzie, Alexia, Micah, & Monica | portraits

Meet the Nell children - McKenzie, Alexia, Micah, and Monica! The two oldest girls take riding lessons from Heather and both asked if they could get their school pictures with the horses!

We started out with Monica while McKenzie & Alexia took riding lessons, but since she had just gotten up from a nap, she wasn't quite ready to sit and smile for the camera. ;)
I left Monica with her mommy and moved onto Micah.
After Micah was done, we tried Monica again and this time she was ready for the camera!
Once the girls were done with their lesson we took their pictures.
Kenzi was very natural in front of the camera. Isn't her smile beautiful?!
And last it was Lexi's turn. I loved her sweet smile.
I'll end with my favorite of Lexi + Kat.

I had fun doing portraits for these sweet cousins of mine. I'm thankful for the opportunity + for the time we could spend with them!
