This little cutie came into the world at 5 lbs but is quickly gaining weight and growing strong! She was a long-awaited baby and is so loved by her parents! She was such a sweetie to work with!

The adorable diaper cover, headband, and hat were crocheted by my talented cousin, Melissa.






Throwback Thursdays

November 21, 2013 at 12:54 pm

I’ve been cleaning and purging my computer along with the house, and I’ve ran across some very fun older images that I’d love to share with you all. Every so often – I will really try to hold myself to every week, but no guarantees, because I rarely know what day it is any way! – I will post a favorite older image from my archives!

Today’s image is of my own daughter. She used to be such a poser! Tween-age has hit right now so we’re not so happy to pose for mama anymore! I took this at one of BYU’s Museum of Art’s exhibitions, this was before I knew it was illegal to take pictures of the art…..I’m stating this now so that I don’t get in trouble! Does that count!?! In my defense there was no posted signage to not taking photos and I do regret not being able to give credit to the artist. But I just thought it was such a fun backdrop and my daughter loves to read so I had her pose in front. Knowing, now, that it is illegal, I’ve learned from my faux-pas and always ask if photos can be taken!

Photo taken Aug 2011 on my Canon EOS Rebel XSi ISO 400 50 mm f/1.8   1/50 sec.  Some post processing has been done to correct the heavy warmth from the lights in Adobe Lightroom.


My Lil Man’s 6th B-day Portraits

August 12, 2013 at 3:47 pm

For his 6th Birthday photos, I wanted to partly re-create a photo shoot that I had previously done with him. The thing was, I was completely blown away that 4 years has passed since this last shoot. How has so much time passed?! He’s growing so quickly! Time just seems to speed up more and more each day. This is partly why I take so many pictures of my own family! I need to capture these moments, milestones and memories!

These were taken when he was 2 years old! Wasn’t he so adorable!?



And these were taken for his 6th Birthday! Many things have changed, but he’s still so adorable! You can really tell how much my photography skills have improved, eh!?



I sure do love this lil man of mine!!
