We are on vacation this week at Hilton Head Island, but I was determined to not miss a week.  I am so excited that I have completed all 23 weeks of our 52 challenge.  The theme this week is Growth: Have you grown in talent, faith, family?  Since we are together with all of the cousins right now, it seemed appropriate to focus on our new family member. 8 weeks ago our family grew by 2 feet.  We were excited to have Mathew join us on our annual beach week this year.  Here are all 5 of the Ames Cousins.

Our theme this week is Fatherly Love.  I knew exactly what I wanted to use for this week!  Last Saturday I had the great pleasure of second shooting with two fabulous photographers in town.  I first “met” Tara Parker of Tara Parker photography on CM about a year ago.  I instantly fell in love with her style and personality.  Working with them was a great experience for me.   One of the things that I was responsible for shooting was the bride and her father as they prepared to walk down the isle.  I had so much fun watching this adorable Dad with his excitement for this special day.  He was so proud and happy to be walking her  down the isle.  I had several shots that showed their love and excitement, but this was my favorite.

This week our theme was Desire: What do you desire, Is it tangible? Is it a goal?  I have no trouble coming up with ideas for this today!  I desire Peace in my life.  I can’t think of a better photo than this to express Peace.  I am always hoping for world Peace.  I am also hoping for Peace in my family and all of my life.  I do think that Peace is tangible and will happen- we just have to work hard at it!

Now head over to see what Linsey Stuckey, Houston, in Texas desires!
