my new favorite image

October 27, 2011

this is my new favorite image of my besties 🙂 I love everything about it (and them!!)

Let them be little…its kind of a subconscious goal I have tucked in the back of my mind everyday…I want her to be silly and have lots of fun as she learns about the world around her…definitely not to grow up too fast.  So I really, really, REALLY treasure these days I have with my little girl and trust me when I say, I thank my Heavenly Father all the time for the blessing of her in our lives. 🙂 xoxoxo


Before and After

there is lots of time that goes into all of our portraits…not just at the time we press the shutter, but also afterwards in post…mouse over the image below to see what I mean!  🙂

Aidan & Luc

October 12, 2011

This past weekend we got to hang out with twin brother’s Aidan and Luc in an orchard…they even brought their own tractor!  I tried to tell Aidan a story about me driving a tractor when I was a kid on the farm I grew up on, but I don’t think I impressed him very much 😉

family photos

October 3, 2011

If you are anything like me…being in front of the camera is not something to look forward to, AT ALL…but, I also know that it is important that my daughter know I actually existed when she was a child 😉

Yesterday, with our tripod in hand, all of us headed outside in hopes of taking a nice family photo.  Normally I stress out about this a bunch and it ends up in tears and frustration from everyone…but this time was different.  I decided before we headed out that if we got one, great, if not that would be fine too, at least we would have some family time together…and don’t you know when you don’t stress, it ends up turning out just fine.  That doesn’t change the fact that my husband and I cringe at ourselves in photos, but I know years from now these will be small treasures worth their weight in gold and my daughter will look at them again and again to see what we looked like as a family all those years ago.  🙂
