Senior Pictures

This girl is my very favorite I must admit. She's been our babysitter for forever, our neighbor, and my dear friend for six years now. I was so excited when she asked me to take some senior pictures for her! Watch out Snow College, this one is beautiful inside AND out.

Do you have a child graduating? Email me to schedule a session.

California here we come!

We are going to California and Disneyland soon. The kids couldn't be more excited. We've been showing them YouTube videos of the rides and things to do around Disneyland for a month now and they've been collecting marbles by doing things to help around the house to earn some play money at Disneyland (best idea EVER by the way). My first time to Disneyland I was a child of kids are spoiled. Any suggestions of things to do with the kids in the Anaheim-San Diego area?


This little girl is SOOO excited to see the princesses, although she has informed me that she is too shy to hug them. This ought to be interesting.

A day with Sophia

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Those mischievous leprechauns came to our house last night and did all sorts of funny things. They were nice enough to leave us some Lucky Charms for breakfast however. We celebrated the day in fine fashion at Amy. F's house for our annual St. Patty's day party where there was fine dining and these sweet hats (see below). All the makings of a great holiday!

Love these two!

And their daddy, who I realized I haven't taken pictures of in a very long time. Such a shame because he's smoking hot. I'll have to remedy that situation.

The Hofheins

One of the benefits of moving to Mapleton is being closer to our friends, the Hofheins. They have an amazing house, beautiful children, and great taste in food. We absolutely love spending time with them. I was so happy to get to take pictures of them and work on shooting indoors.

Wendy HAND PAINTED the mural behind them.

Their other family member, Isabelle.

With their newest addition.

Interior shots

Here are some requested interior shots of our home. Like I said, it's still real empty.

Hallway to mudroom area, garage and on the left, the laundry.

The laundry room.

Girls Retreat

This last weekend, a group of six college friends said goodbye to kids and VERY nice husbands and took off for a relaxing weekend of hilarity in Las Vegas. We laughed till all hours of the day and night, watched prank videos we made in college, ate the most delicious food, relaxed, and most of all shopped. I love these girls so much and know without a doubt that we were put together in good old Skyview for a reason. I can't wait for next year's reunion already!

Pretending it was warm and going to layout.

Some VERY pasty white bodies enjoying the sun we've been deprived of for way too long.

Good old In N Out.

A delightful pedicure.

And yes, we ran to the sign in our pedicure paper flip flops, what of it?

All those in attendance this year.

Us before going to Le Reve at the Wynn. Worth every penny I spent on it, though it helped to have a local buy them for the discounts! AMAZING!!! (photo courtesy of Jen)

Lucy Marseille

This little one cracks me up daily. The other day we had some guys over at our house working on some touch ups to our cabinets. Lucy went over to one of them and asked in a somewhat condescending tone, "What's your name, worker?" Wow.
