A picture is worth a thousand words...

Are you excited for Christmas?

This is how excited for Christmas we are here at our house!

Well, he is finally here!

He is such a good little guy, and we are all pretty much smitten (probably me most of all though)!

The lighting in my new place is not ideal, especially during the winter. So when my friend Dana offered to do a newborn session for me I couldn't pass it up. Check her out here ...Dana Peterson Photography. She sent me home with the images and I edited them...I did put my watermark on them, just so that they were marked - not trying to steal them ;)
This one took a lot of work to get, he really did not want to sit like this. In fact, I don't think he was that into getting his picture taken at all!
I loved that she got a little grin here!

Thanks Dana, I love them!

This is Derrick, my cousin, he was in need of a few senior pictures. So while they were here in Boise we took a few - and here are a couple of the finished pictures...
These were a couple of my favorites and I couldn't decide which I like better - black and white or the colored version :)
It was good to see you and your family for a few minutes while you were here, good luck on with your Senior year!

Lately life here has been hectic:

we've recently moved, just down the hill - but still a lot of work
still trying to finish up law school
I've been working nearly full time hours
I am pregnant and getting bigger and bigger every day
(we're having a BOY! we're thrilled!)
our house in Michigan flooded...
we are trying to sell our house in Michigan
and as always we're enjoying life with our 2 energy filled little women!

Those are just the major things that come to mind right at this moment:)

I'm really not trying to complain, or have you all feeling bad for me, I'm sure that all of your lives are probably just as hectic in their own little ways. But because of all that we have going on right now I am going to put my photography on the back burner for a while. I probably will not be doing any sessions this summer other than for family and close friends. There just aren't enough hours in the day!

I do have a new little nephew scheduled to make his debut here on Monday so you should check back for pictures of the new little guy sometime here in the next few weeks I hope!

Blessing Dress

Phobee was blessed on the 4th of July, so we took a few shots before her big day. My mom is a wonderful seamstress and made this gorgeous dress just for her!


Phoebee is my new little niece, and she is darling of course! I have had these sitting on my computer for a while now. So it is about time we get these out there for people to see :) Phoebee is now almost 3 months old, but these newborn pictures were taken when she was about 2 weeks old.

This is Carlee, the big sister. She wanted to get in on the photoshoot - so of course we let her. There is a whole series of these pictures and they all just crack me up!

Bad News

We recently took a little trip to California....something happened to my camera
somewhere between here and there :(

When I pulled it out at Sea World to take some pictures of my girls everything I saw through the viewfinder was blurry. I thought maybe it was just me, but Andy saw the same thing. The pictures taken on AUTO still work, but I am going to be out of commission here on this blog until I either get it fixed - or convince my husband that an upgrade is now in order! I'll let you know when I am back up and running...hopefully soon.

But until then I will leave you with a couple (or a lot) of recent pictures of my girls. I took them around Easter:

I ordered these last 2 in 16 x 20 on styrene to hang in my them!

It is finally starting to feel like spring here in Boise. (Now just watch it is going to snow tomorrow! ) I have had a super busy past couple of months, but hopefully now that we are moved things will start to slow down a little bit. Probably just wishful thinking, but I can hope right?

Keni is already 6 months old. I hadn't seen her for a month or two and I couldn't believe all of the cute curly hair she had grown since I had seen her last...definitely a trait she gets from her dad :)
She was pretty willing to sit anywhere and everywhere we put her, and we only caught her trying to sneak a handful of dirt a couple of times :)

Good luck with all the packing and moving guys!

Blue Eyes

We ended up picking the perfect day to go to the park for some Easter pictures. These two were the perfect little models, every time I take pictures of them I don't think they could get any cuter...but somehow they always manage to :)

These two are now 9 months old, I couldn't believe how much their hair had grown since I saw them last. They look so grown up already!
Landon was pretty serious about it all, but with the help of Grandma being silly in the background we managed to coax a few smiles out of him. I'm sure she will agree that it was totally worth it!
They both have the most amazing blue eyes - I didn't do anything to them in photoshop I swear!
Their newest trick is standing up, this momma is going to have her hands full when these two start running around...which by the looks of things is not too far away :)
Thanks guys, I should have the rest ready for you soon!

In honor of Shay's birthday today we put curlers in the girls hair last night. They kept them in all night, and it turned out so cute! Of course, we documented the occasion with a few pictures ;)

The birthday girl...finally 3 years old!
The big sister...
These 2 lately have been such good little friends, it is the sweetest thing to see :)

So Sweet...

Last week I got an e-mail asking about taking some newborn pictures from someone that I don't know! She said she had seen my blog - I really didn't know anyone other than family and friends looked at my blog ;) I have really only taken pictures for family and friends, and friends of family and friends so far...I guess I am branching out. Exciting!!

Anyway, on to more important matters:

Meet Cole...

He was born on Christmas Day - what a great Christmas present :)
He's 5 weeks old and was as sweet as can be. All it took was a bottle and a diaper change

(or two - haha)

and he went right to sleep.
I discovered that I didn't have too many little boy props for pictures.
I need to start adding some blue and green things to my collection!

This next one is one of my very favorites!
So sweet and peaceful...
Have a fun time on your trip! Hope you enjoyed you sneak peek :)

Ahhh, so sweet!

3 Months Already

We are headed out of town for the weekend, but I wanted to get these up!

If you remember Keni (I did her newborn pictures), well she is now already 3 months old. She was so content and happy the whole time we were taking pictures. I think she just might be spoiling her mom and dad ;)

I have been eyeing this cute blanket every week at church and was so glad they brought it!
It took a little bit to get her smiling, but it was worth it!
Andy, just made me a backdrop stand this week. So we tried it out today and it worked like a charm.

This is my favorite picture from the far!
Totally worth having to move the couch and make a mad dash to the vaccumn so that
Kelsie and Joe wouldn't see all the scary things lurking behind my couch!
Darling baby...cute pictures...the end!
