black/white version because I know Lauren loves B&W pics
This family just said goodbye to their son for 2 years while he is going to serve in a church mission. He will be learning to speak spanish while he is gone. I had a lot of fun with this family. I loved kidding around with the girls especially 🙂
I love summertime. I love sleeping in and getting to choose what we do every day. I love getting to adventure out and experience new things with family and friends. I must say I’m so proud that I’m actually doing something with my pictures! I made these collages for a book for my kids, but they are too fun not to share!
Summertime fun in the Northwest. I’ve never been blueberry picking. I can’t even express how fun and exciting this was to me. My favorite children’s book was “Blueberries for Sal” when I was a little girl. I was so excited about BLACKberries my first year here (which are painfully thorny to pick!) The thrill of huge clumps of blueberries everywhere on a beautiful northwest morning with my children and one of my favorite friends made this activity one of my favorites this summer. Thanks to my cute friend for telling me about this! Some cute pics of them …
washing, freezing, eating and jamming our blueberries. I LOVED it. I couldn’t help but think how healthy this is for my family.
Utah – my kids adore their cousins on both sides. They are the youngest kids on my husbands side and the oldest on my side. So they get experience being the followers and the leaders. Below we were all doing a “cheers!” after my hubby gave a special toast to family and especially his mom and her new found sister.
The hummingbirds at my in-laws were always around. Grandpa caught one in the garage, let the kids see it up close and let it go.
These pictures below need a blog post all on their own. Quite the story! Someday I might take a stab at writing what this moment meant to all of us as we watched these cute sisters.
my husband and his family road in the bobsled in Park city. They went 70+mph on the actual bobsled course from the 2002 Olympics. What an experience
Girl scout camp. Look at these cute girls!! My girl is getting so big. She LOVED twilight camp. She came home so happy every night.
I really enjoyed taking these newborn pictures because she was such a good baby and because I love this family! Whenever I’m around her mom it makes me want to be a better person. I love people like that. I only wish I lived closer to her so I could learn more from her.
I love how these pictures turned out. Discovery dentistry in Washougal, WA has the most amazing landscape. These pictures are in the backyard which you get to look at the whole time you’re getting your teeth cleaned. Their is a beautiful water feature in the back with tons of flowering trees.
They have awesome giveaways on facebook if you “like” them! https://www.facebook.com/DiscoveryDental I won a spa gift certificate last month. I was so excited!
This little cutie is brand new. Only 4 days old and so tiny. This is a first child and also first grandchild, so Grandma and a few friends joined us for the photoshoot. Newborn shoots take a long time, and the family was patiently all involved in getting her to sleep for our pictures. Such a great family! And what amazing parents. They were very laid back and didn’t get overwhelmed at all. I wish them the best of luck with this little beauty! Such a beautiful little girl.
I love pinterest and wish I had more time in the day to complete all the projects and ideas I have pinned. I slowly push ideas onto my accomplished list. Here is one of them. It is not my little guys birthday, but since it was good weather and we were out playing with chalk I drew some balloons and he paused for a moment long enough for me to get on a ladder and take a picture. Since it was worth me getting the ladder out to fit as much as I could in the picture, I thought I better post it.
School pictures at the spanish school. This is my favorite photo shoot of the year. I love taking pictures of young children. I had so much fun making them laugh. Many of the parents asked me how I get them to smile and laugh so naturally – I just act really goofy. I think I took about 50 kids pictures in 3 days. It was very fun.

I took pictures of this family last year. You can see the post here. This cute family got a new puppy! I took pictures for this cute mom and her son last year with their family dog they had for many years. They knew it was coming to an end for him because of health problems. He passed away a few months later. I’m so glad they got beautiful pictures with him. Now they have a new puppy. Her name is Franklyn and she is such a beautiful dog! What a good little puppy. I like this one below because it shows her size. Soon this 6 year old won’t be able to pick her up!
