S0, back in early September My firstborn AKA tall pocket pal travelled to Seattle for a lil girl getaway <3
Besides the fun shopping, sight seeing, & girl time, we discovered the YUMMIEST gluten free/dairy free bakery in the heart of Fremont <3
Ok, so we were in's literally a dream come true to be able to literally eat any baked goods our little hearts desired!
If you're ever in Seattle, & either prefer to eat a bit healthier, or cannot eat gluten....this bakery is a MUST:)

I had the opportunity to photograph this handsome kid, who is serving a 2 year mission for his church in the Samoa, Apia mission.  Here are a few of some of my fav's from his session:)
I've known this kid for years, & IK he will do a amazing!  
Ammon, good luck!  I'm excited to read about your adventures to come as you learn to love the people, embrace the culture of some of your ancestors, & serve.

"Grateful to all of those who support me in my decision to serve God for the next two years. Even though I already miss my loved ones, more than anything, I know that the teachings of Christ are the reason my family is so happy, and that the principles of His restored gospel have brought me every blessing in my life. Not to declare this "good news" of Jesus Christ to others, would be selfish of me. I will be praying for my friends and family as I come closer to Christ and hope that I inspire others to serve God and learn more of Him."

Someone is officially a TEENAGER!  My sassy, my baby girl is 13!
It's crazy how quickly life happens.....It really feels like just a couple of years ago she was this cute lil chubby girl, w/a fun lil "accent" (that she grew out)
I love any excuse to photograph my kiddos, but during their birthday month, we go out for a "real" session <3 & it's always fun:) 
& I 


 I love my sassy pants:) So glad she's my baby girl <3

How about a little blog post for this Tuesday morning:)?! Let me tell you about this stunning tiny ginger, named Caitlyn, & she is a DOLL:)

Caitlyn turned  the big ONE the day of her birthday shoot, & she was one happy little girl!
I can honestly say that I don't think I have ever shot a happier, & sweeter birthday girl like Caitlyn:)
w/that being said, mom & dad were super cool & happy too:)
I hope to watch this little beauty grow & have the opportunity to capture her often:)
I love what I get to do very much, but when I have such an awesome session like this one, it makes what I do feel like I am just playing:)
I love it!

"The beauty you see in me; is a reflection of you"

I recently saw this quote as I was scrolling down my instagram feed, & I couldn't think of a more perfect little quote for this photo <3
I had the sweetest lifestyle newborn session ever a few weeks ago!
I was pretty excited when this beautiful mamma, 8 months pregnant w/her 5th child (yes she now has 5 children under, 11!) asked me to do a newborn session:) & a few weeks later, I got a text from a VERY happy & proud daddy telling me their bundle of joy made his entrance into this world <3 
 & a few days later I was snapping away & loving every second of it!  
We had laughter, jumping on beds, excitement & a whole lot of love going on during our shoot!

These are just a handful of some of my favorite's<3

Congratulations to this beautiful family, they are a model family to all who know & love them:)

Spring love!

I had the most adorable little family sessions this spring, it has to be one of my favorite's for sure:)
As a photographer it's always so awesome to have clients who come to you a couple times a year, every year <3 it makes me happy, it's fun catching up, & it's precious watching the subtle changes in their families as they grow:)
But I also love when I get to meet a new client, I have no idea of what to expect, sometimes it's a bit more challenging because I don't know the family, their dynamics, the children.....
Well, I KNEW this would be a beautiful shoot, even though I hadn't shot w/them before, I knew this was an adorable little family, but what I didn't know was that it was going to be a bit of a magical session:)
So it's not always ponies & rainbows from "hello":) Our hello was quickly turned into a few tears as one of these beauties was showing me her giant awesome white balloon for their shoot that they had brought & were so excited about it, BUT we watched it fly up, up & away..................
I felt so sad for her;/ luckily I had brought a few tricks for this sessions & even though they ween't an awesome, giant white balloon, it was almost as fun:) We had bubbles, peeps (it was before Easter:) & confetti eggs!
These little girls are beautiful....but I think that I had a little fairy on my shoulder during our session because as beautiful as they truly are, 98% of the time they were snacking on treats, or picking out "stickies" from their sandals.....after all were really were in the forest, & well, the forest has little critters, tall dry grass, & all sorts of things that an 18 months old & a 4 year old might be a bit distracted by:)
I am in LOVE w/these images, I hope mom n dad are too:) Speaking of mom n dad, they were darling as well!  & so sweet w/their girls, so full of love <3
I feel lucky to be able to get to know new & "old" families thru my photography, capture pretty photos, & freeze time for them <3
It's the best thing ever! scroll down & LOOK @ these faces :)
SOOOO cute!
