Sneak Preview For Jill!

I had the opportunity to do a shoot of my friend's little guy Harrison. Seriously, he's adorable and busier than ever I must add! It was so fun taking pictues of him because he reminds me of my busy little Ellah. He's the cutest little cowboy I've seen!

Is this a sign of OCD?

Ellah is so funny. She LOVES to color but she won't use the color crayon until ALL (I mean every last piece) of paper is pulled off of it. It got to be a little frustrating because she's always asking me to color with her. So I would sit down to color and all she would do for 30 minutes straight is peel the paper off the crayons... I think every crayon has the paper off now, so we're good for lots of pretty pictures now (FINALLY!)...

Family Texas Photo Shoot

I'm finally posting a few of the pictures from the shoot I did with my parents (and my baby brother, Tanner). I took these when Ellah and I went to Dallas at the end of June. Tanner and Ellah are like brother and sister... They have so much fun playing together since they don't have any one else to play with (i.e. younger siblings) but they do tease each other too. They're so cute. Ellah tried to make sure she was in almost every picture but we did get a few shots without her too... Anyways thanks mom and dad for some fun pictures (I hope you enjoy)!

Happy Late 4th of July!

Before my actual "POST" I really wanted to tell everyone thank-you so much for all your nice and generous comments on my photography! It is so encouraging and I really appreciate it! So Thanks! I am working on putting together a website right now and getting my photography business going... Anyways thanks again it always means a lot!
For the 4th of July weekend the 3 of us headed up to Payson for the weekend. We have a "family" cabin there and thought it would be a nice little get-away for the weekend. We knew that there was going to be some family already up at the cabin but my sister gave me the heads up that there would be a room for us too... I got a call right as we were leaving our house with the message that, "sleeping conditions were a little rough..." We showed up on Friday morning to find a cabin full of 29 people (including kiddos)! Wowsie! It was really a lot of fun despite the sleeping conditions. Yeah, the 3 of us were able to share a twin bunk bed in the family room downstairs. I don't think I slept a wink for 2 reasons, 1 because Ellah was literally kicking me as hard as she could like I was some wall that just wouldn't budge and 2 because I was just sure as can be that every time Brian moved on that top bunk that it was going to come crashing down on Ellah and I at any given moment... But we did make it through the night and Ellah had TONS of fun playing with her cousins. I had so much fun playing games with my fam. and had way TOO much to eat, like usual. Here are some pictures of our adventure...

Brian got this AWESOME shot! He's so great with the camera. This is my favorite picture of the trip and one of my favorites all together. The sky was so pretty and stormy and the kids were having so much fun playing together (all 4 are cousins)...

This picture cracks me up because Brixon, my adorable little Nephew, is wearing Ellah's sneakers. He would did not want to take them off for HOURS for anything... LOL

On Saturday the 3 of us headed to a little carnival. We got there a little too late for any of the activities but we did have some "interesting" BBQ and Brian's name was chosen from the raffle! He won a free ice-cream to McDonalds, anywhere up North...

I love holding my little babe when she is asleep only because it doesn't happen very often anymore...

Recent Shoot for My New Nephew

My brother and sister-in-law just welcomed a new little guy, my nephew, Bo Harry Gould into the world. He was born at the end of May. He is seriously one of the cutest little babies. Here's a few shots from our shoot...

This is one of my favorite shots only because I love that it captures his little smile while he is sleeping. Anyone that has kids knows how precious it is to see your newborn smile while they're so peacefully asleep... You can't help but wonder what all they can see and remember.
