The Y Family

The Y Family
The Y Family are my neighbors and friends and their kids are super cute.  We love hanging out.  This beautiful family was my first family shoot.  Let me tell you, getting three little kids to look at the camera and act happy was hard, but I think the results were completely worth it.  Take a look!

By the way, my camera seems to still be acting up after I got it "fixed".  I need to find out if this is a user (me) error or a camera error stat!

This good lookin' young man is my husband's younger brother.  He's on the football team, wrestling team, student council, and is smart too.  Yes, ladies, he's single!  He's super busy, so we checked him out of his last hour of classes to get these shots.  That's right, we did a photo shoot during the heat of the day, but I really like how these turned out.  Thanks for letting me practice my photography on you, Kaleb!  I hope you had as much fun as I had and that these pictures are just what you envisioned.

For your photo proofing pleasure:


Our Bundle of Joy

Our Bundle of Joy
Introducing: Levi Wade.  The newest addition to our family arrived on August 3rd at 1:58PM.  He weighed in at 9lbs 9oz and was 21 inches long.  We are completely smitten.  I can't stop staring, cuddling, and kissing those cheeks that feel like overripe peaches. 

 I love it when he's awake.  There's just something about those eyes.

 An uncontrollable gassy smile.

 A yawn.

 Zoolander!  This picture made me laugh.

 I have a thing for tiny feet.

 My personal favorite.

 Little hands.

My handsome sleeping stud!

My Two Year Old

My Two Year Old
I finally took my little man out tonight to take his two year old pictures.  Everything was perfect: a happy well-dressed toddler, perfect sunny weather, and an old white barn next to a golden field for a backdrop.  Unfortunately, my camera was having some technical difficulties focusing!  Come to find out, the mechanism that drives the autofocus on my camera is broken.  Bummer.  So now my camera has been sent off to be fixed.  (I just hope it comes back before baby boy makes his debut!)  These are the best shots I got from the night.  I think we'll be going out again another time.

This weekend my New York life collided with my Idaho life.  I thought I'd left everyone and everything behind in New York when we moved a little less than a year ago, but a little piece followed me here.  It was a bit strange to see Corinne out West here, but so much fun!  We went out to lunch and got caught up on just about everything.

Corinne is a beautiful girl inside and out.  She's marrying this cute young man next week.  She asked me to be her escort her first time through the LDS temple.  Of course I obliged.  I felt so honored to be there on her special day.

And then, of course, I begged for ten minutes of their time to take a few pictures outside afterwards.  They are so cute together!  I am overjoyed for them.  Congratulations you two!

Leah is a lucky baby girl. She has the cutest parents! I am so excited for them and their little family. Leah was so much fun to photograph. At just five days old, she slept peacefully the entire afternoon; which allowed me to try to be a little more creative. Leah, you precious girl, I look forward to seeing you grow!

Baby Elizabeth

Baby Elizabeth
My friend Alesha was kind enough to let me take pictures of her newborn in my mock studio/living room.  Elizabeth is a gorgeous baby.  It was therapeutic just to hold her.  Only drawback to her perfectness is that she preferred to be awake all afternoon.  It's hard to get a little ball of heaven to stay curled when she's awake.  Oh well; I still managed to get a handful of pictures I really like.  Also, having her family over for pizza and fun conversation that evening was a plus.

Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present Elizabeth.
