Easter Blessings

Happy Easter everyone! I hope that everyone has enjoyed this beautiful weekend as much as I have. The sun is finally shining and it’s starting to really feel like spring might be here to stay (fingers crossed anyways!) There really seems to be that ‘springy happy’ feeling floating around.

This year my mom and dad hosted our big family Easter dinner at their place so I’ve spent a relaxing weekend with family. We went to the Easter Sunday service yesterday and during the service my mom reminded me of a photo I captured a few years ago. I really just wanted to come home and share this image with everyone.

Just to finish off – some lyrics from one of my long time favorite hymns. Perfect for Easter. 🙂

Now You are exalted to the highest place
King of the heavens, where one day I’ll bow
But for now I marvel at Your saving grace
And I’m full of praise once again
I’m full of praise once again
And once again I look upon the cross where You died
I’m humbled by Your mercy and I’m broken inside
Once again I thank You
Once again I lay down my life
Thank You for the cross, my friend

Once Again – Matt Redman

Truman – Wainwright Easter Bunny Sessions

This handom man was a blast to have in the studio. His smile and amazing personality shone through. He had so much fun he didn’t even want to leave afterwards. It melted my heart when he gave me a huge hug goodbye.

Easter Bunny Sessions by L Smiley Photography

I had a bunny come hang out in the studio – AND a bunch of super sweet & adorable kiddos!

With the snow melting this week it seemed like the perfect time to have some fun Easter themed sessions. Thanks so much to Miss Scarlett for lending her bunny Blueberry Muffin to me for the day! I loved my little ‘Pet for a Day’ experience.
