Happy Halloween

I have a spooky but "nice" (as Ellah puts it) little witch on my hands who had fun ringing grandma's doorbell over and over for treats last night!

Miami, Arizona

Brian and I headed up to Miami, AZ last week to do a shoot. This was a little different shoot than was for a funeral. The family wanted a picture of everyone. It was the first time that the siblings had all been together since the 1980's! I'm grateful for the opportunity to help capture memories for this family that will be passed down for generations to come. I only wish it was under different circumstances.
On a side note: I have to thank my best friend in the entire world, Bri Babe, for coming with me! He's so supportive and was so helpful with setting up equipment, holding reflectors, finding place to shoot, driving in the car with me, taking the day off work...I love you Bri, You're the best!

Here's a small glimpse of the afternoon:

Vintage Bliss

Trendy Vintage Fashions has a new name and a new blog site! I did a shoot for Vintage Bliss last week again. I love hanging out with my two favorite girlfriends and think they make the perfect models! Take a look at the new clothing for Vintage Bliss. Also check out the Vintage Bliss site for Authentic True Religion jeans for nearly 1/2 the price! Shelly is amazing, fun and easy to talk to and work with so if you have questions about the clothing at all or want to try it on send her an email, her contact info is listed on her Vintage Bliss blog site. Plus, there are additional styles not show her but shown on her site!

Beautiful Baby B

On Friday I did a newborn shoot of 10 day old Baby B. She is so beautiful and was almost the same measurements as Ellah was at birth! It really made me miss having a new little baby. This is A's (B's mom) first baby and she is such an amazing mother already! I love seeing the love between a newborn and their mom, there is nothing more tender and sweet. Here's a few sneak preview for A... Keep an eye on my website throughout the week as I will add more pictures from this shoot as well as others!

My awesome long time friend, Lindsey with TuTu Heaven (, made this amazing and adorable infant tutu for this shoot! Check out her blog as she is always adding new designs and styles. They're adorable for pictures and just for fun!

My Favorite Girl in the Whole Wide World

That's what I say to Ellah every night before I shut her door at night. A couple nights ago she said, "mom you're my favorite girl too!" Do you ever go through stages where you think your kids are the cutest things and you just can't get enough of them? So she was a little grouchier this past week but honestly I love the stage and age that she is at right now. I love how hard she tries to explain things just perfectly or how innocently she asks me questions. My favorite phrases lately:

Mom want to come to my house (her bedroom) with me? (As she's looking intently at my eyes and shaking her head yes as she waits for me to answer

Mom do you know how much I love you

Mom is today my birthday (it's not for a couple of months, she asks me this several times a day)
I told her, her birthday was still a long ways away and her most perfectly innocent answer was okay mom we will drive to my birthday then

I'm all ready for preschool mom (she's not in preschool but always loads up her backpack getting read to go!)

Daddy do you love my mommy?

on Sunday morning, Mommy is Daddy at work and school?

Daddy always shares his baseball games with me mommy and that's so nice of him

I just love miss Ellah and I feel so grateful every single day to be her mom! It's amazing how much she teaches me.
I have so many pictures of her, here our a few of my latest favorites...

I am thinking about getting this one in a 16x20 for my house...

And getting this one in a 10x20

I love her big blue eyes!

Another Christmas Card... My October deal is going on until the end of the month!
