Holiday Blessing

Sweet Elizabeth was born shortly before Christmas and is such a perfect little addition to her family.  I just adore being able to go into client's homes for a session-it's so fun to find elements of their every day lives to incorporate into the shoot.  Not to mention, I strangely enjoy the challenge of finding the light in unfamiliar spaces :)




 Hope everyone has a fun and safe evening-Happy New Year!!

Merry Christmas!

Thank you all for making this year so wonderful.  I couldn't ask for better people to have in my life and am extremely excited to see what the new year has in store.  Just wanted to share this shot of my sweet Sienna, headlining our Christmas card this year.  
Merry Christmas, everyone!

Our Treasured Baby

I am so honored (& excited!) that Rachel featured me on Our Treasured Baby Blog today!  Check out the segment here:

Rachel is a wonderful writer and and her posts are filled with beautiful baby inspiration.  She updates often, so be sure to check back and leave her some love! 

And, of course a post wouldn't be any fun without a picture....here's a preview of what Rachel's got going on over at the blog today! This was my favorite shot from the session, isn't Erin stunning?

Givon

I was so exited when we set up Givon's shoot, he is just the cutest!!  And that suit mom bought him, are you kidding me?  What a stud muffin.   These were all shot right outside Grandma's house, she keeps the most beautiful gardens!  It was a super humid day with lots of mosquitoes (poor little buddy!) so we had to keep it quick, but I think the results were SO worth the sweat & excessive bug spray :)

Beach Vacay

My poor blog.  It has been so badly neglected!  But, I'm back....I promise this time!  I feel like I've been on the go since August, and have so many things I haven't shared.  So, be prepared for a blog blitz this week :)   First up are a few images from vacation this summer.  We hit this great beach one day and Sienna was just bein' all cute, as always.







Gosh I love her :) Revisiting these images makes me even more cold though, if that is even possible.  When will the snow stop?! Hope you all are enjoying your weekend, I absolutely cannot believe Christmas is a mere 6 days away!

happy birthday

my sweet girl,
i can hardly believe how quickly the time has flown. it makes me sad that i am already having a hard time remembering all the little details of your first two years with us.  you truly are the light of my life.  sometimes i try to remember what my life was like before you were here, and honestly i don't know why i even got out of bed.  these days, you and i get out of bed bright and early each morning and share cereal snacks over coffee and milk while indulging in the newest dora the explorer episode...she's your absolute favorite.  I think swiper & boots are probably tied at a close second:)  Your most favorite people in the world right now (there are quite a few:) are: mommy, daddy, your grandmas and grandpas, auntie risa, auntie bethy, uncle's max & michael, miss freda, mister tucker, monica & eric...in no particular order. You really love Dora, and could probably watch it all day if we let you!  You also love to color, count and play outside & on your slide!  your favorite foods are bananas, mac n cheese, hot dogs, pizza, pretzels, and tomatoes.....these will probably change next week:)  you have the sweetest little voice, and sure know how to speak your mind (many times in spanish!).  everyone that has ever met you has left with a smile, you are such a special and unique being.  so smart, and sweet all the same.  it never ceases to amaze me when you can just tell mama needs a big ol hug and smooch...and boy do you deliver.  your doggie kisses are my favorite:)  your sense of humor is hilarious for a person of your age and size.  you have taught me so many things about the person i am, and most of all how to love so deeply it hurts.
my baby, my greatest blessing...happy birthday, i love you!   xoxo, mama

Kylie & Jake

A couple of weekends ago I went back home to watch an old friend get married, and she looked absolutely stunning! I hadn't met Jake before the big day, but the connection and love that they have for one another was so obvious it truly amazed me!  Here are some photos from their celebration:)

The boys getting ready!
And the girlies:)
Proud papa giving away his youngest daughter
Congratulations Kylie & Jake!! I can't wait to see what the world has in store for you two!

Minneapolis

Remember when I said I met up with some awesome ladies a few weeks ago?  Well, I'm finally sharing!  I've been doing an internship for the past couple weeks that will continue into the middle of July so I have been a lot busier than usual:)  Our models on this day were so darn cute, and put up with all of our funny requests.  Kellie (www.heavenesque.com) roped in & styled all of these beautiful ladies, and we all are very thankful for that!  I'm sure as I move through them, I'll have a few more to post, but until then...
If anyone wants to check out any of the other photog's stuff from that day here are their sites!  We had so much fun!!
