The most wonderful time of the year

I can't believe how much time has gone by since I last posted; in fact, it's a little embarrassing.  I was so sure that things would slow down after my wedding season ended; I forgot to factor in all the end of the year photo orders and albums to design!  It's all good though, I am finally caught up and ready to relax for a couple of weeks.

Thanksgiving has come and gone and now Christmas is right on top of us.  I look forward to this time all year long, and can't wait to celebrate with family and friends.  Over Thanksgiving, my parents came up for a quick visit and we were able to capture a few shots.

I know my husband secretly enjoys it when I "force" him into a photo shoot.  I can't help it though... he's such a stud!

I love my parents!  I am so grateful and honored to have them.  They have always been so supportive and have given more than I could have ever asked for.  I am so lucky!
Can you believe these two are over 50?
I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!  I'll be in and out of town throughout the rest of this month, but I will be sure to post images from my travels!

Wedding of Sarah and Donnie :: 11-1-08

I can't believe the end of my wedding season is already here!  It's getting colder outside, and the Holidays are just around the corner.  I can remember my first wedding of the season as if it were yesterday!
Sarah and Donnie were the perfect couple to end things with!  The morning started off with quite a bit of fog that lingered for most of the morning.  Below are some fun images of Donnie and the guys.  They were such a fun group, and I could tell their friendships ran deep.

I have been racking my brain ever since I met Sarah, trying to figure out who she reminds me of, and the other day it finally came to me.  She's a cross between Gabrielle Anwar ("Wild Hearts Can't be Broken", "Burn Notice") and Michelle Monaghan ("Gone Baby Gone")  She was absolutely stunning!  I love the veil!

Their love for each other was evident in every look and smile they gave each other... in fact, I don't think either of them ever stopped smiling.  There is such a innocence and beauty in their love.

Again, absolutely stunning!

It was such an honor to be a part of this day... to witness true love.  I think I am still smiling from this wedding... it was infectious!  
Sarah and Donnie, thank you for trusting me with this day!  I can't wait to show you the rest!  
In the meantime, CLICK HERE for a slideshow of your day.  Thanks again, I wish you all the best and pray God's blessing upon your new lives together!

Halloween Fun

Last week I did a small "halloween" session for my nephew and nieces.  Luke wanted to be Indiana Jones, and in my opinion, he pulled it off quite well.  He is such the little model :)

By the end of the session, I struggled to get the three of them together... ahhh sibling love.

Alaina did such a good job.  She is an amazing little listener, and although she's not talking yet, she knows exactly what's going on around her.  She is very smart!

Sydney made the perfect "little witch"... a good witch I might add.  She was ready for her part of the session and began with all smiles.

Small town fun

Last weekend I decided to take a quick trip back home to southeast Missouri, and breathe some good ol' country air.  It was the annual Ozark Heritage Festival... a big to-do for my hometown :)  I picked up my sister and nephew along the way... we both left our husbands at home... ahhh :)  (just kidding Paul)
  The day began with a parade consisting mostly of campaigners, farm machinery and big trucks.  Joah seemed to like the firetrucks.

In the image below, on the left, is my cousin, Ethan.  I used to go to his house every weekend and babysit him when I was in high school... that was over a decade ago!  Time sure has flown by!  The day had only began, and already Joah was pooped out! :)
Below is a shot of the amateur team sawing and some good ol' rail splitting.
I found myself a bit inspired in my mom's craft room.  The sunlight was coming in just right and made every little knick knack and craft seem magical.  She does such a good job!

Sunday, we spent the morning at Sam-A-Baker state park.  It was absolutely gorgeous outside... I couldn't get enough of it, and hated that I had to head back to KC that day.
Below is my brother with Joah.  I love my brother... I don't get to see him enough.  Diana and I stayed outside late one night with him and just talked.  It was nice... it hasn't been just the three of us for quite some time.

The weekend went by way to fast.  I came home to rain and gloomy skies :(  Ah well, I hear this weekend is supposed to be nice!

About Christina

One of my favorite memories from my own wedding, aside from marrying my husband, was when my Dad walked me down the aisle and I leaned over and whispered to him, "I'll always be your little girl."  I love that moment!
     It's moments that make up our lives, defines who we are, and ultimately create our destinies.  Many such moments have brought me to where I am today.  I began photographing in 2001, and began Sandberg Photography in the fall of 2006.  This has been a huge dream of mine, and I believe that God has given me a gift of capturing unique and special moments; without Him, I am truly nothing!  I owe this dream to Him!
