Inspirations through a Life List {Part One}

I was recently inspired through another fellow Christian Photographer's "Life List" and was encouraged to create my own. What a great idea! I also wanted my readers to get a little look inside the personal side of me. I am going to have to break my list up into two parts. The first fifty on my list will be on this one. The last fifty (for a total of one hundred) will be on another post. This is a list of everything I want to accomplish in my life. Life is so short don't forget to LIVE it! Lets begin.

Day 85 - 90 of Project 365! {Beach mini-vaca}

This week we went on a mini-vacation to the Beach. The closest beach to us was Lake Charles, so I booked a room and me and the boys jetted off on our newest adventure! The room was amazing, complete with a jacuzzi tub!! Here is the chandelier in the front entrance.


 For those who are interested it was Holiday Inn Express in Lake Charles!! So super pleased with the customer service and everything about this hotel! Now for the beach!



At first it was cloudy and very windy, but that didn't stop us from having a great time!! (Or jumping in the cold water!)


This was the first sand castle that was built!


And this was the second castle on the second day!! We had a great time, minus the sun burns! Always remember lots of sun block for the little ones.


Love and happiness always,

Kristin Grace

Day 71-78 of Project 365!! {Colin Layne}

I know I am late updating my blog. For my followers, I am terribly sorry, and I will try to not get backed up like that again. Now, to the blogging:

This is Colin Layne! How adorable is he??? We did a couple themed photos to have for his birthday invitations, which are themed "trucks." This baby is overly happy and so laid back. He was a JOY to work with. Jenn, you are a lucky girl, my friend! I can't believe he is about to be ONE! Ahhh!

Thank you for letting me share this moment with you guys!

Love always,

Kristin Grace

Day 67 - 70 of Project 365! {Mardi Gras}

Happy Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras!!! We usually have a five day celebration complete with four parades in our city. One of our parades got rained out, but it didn't stop us from going in the rain to the others! Me and my boys had an awesome time! Take a look:





Thanks for stopping by!
Love always,

Day 62 - 66 of Project 365! {Spring}

As the cold finally starts to go away, and the sun starts to shine more I start to notice FLOWERS!! Love spring time. I wake up every morning to birds chirping (thanks to my handy bird feeder right outside my door)! I love to watch the trees and flowers in bloom. Here is the first glance of spring that we are seeing around my house:






Love always,

Day 58 - 61 of Project 365! {Aspen and David's E-Shoot}

I am so thrilled to share this engagement with this marvelous couple. You can honestly fill the love between the two of them. So, so, so sweet. I loved Aspen's artsy ideas. David was pretty much down for anything. They are both so laid back and a pleasure to work with. I can't wait to see the wedding!

That's all for today!
Love and happiness always,

Kristin Grace
