iconElla and her folks

I wish I had time to share more from this session. There are so many that I just love. But I need to get busy packing for 6 people so we can get outta town, baby! Here are just two for now...I promise to share more later.

This one makes me so happy!


iconEmma {St. George, Utah Children's Photographer}

I have to admit, after taking a long break from photography, I was a bit nervous for this session. Was I really ready to jump back into it again?

When I saw these big, blue eyes & curly blonde locks my heart started beating faster. I couldn't wait to get her in front of the camera. I knew I was ready.

Emma and I had so much fun together. At first she was a bit hesitant. But it didn't take her long to warm up to me and my camera. We ran and jumped and played. By the time our session was over, she wasn't quite ready to go. She kept pointing out new spots that would be perfect for a few snaps.

Thank you, Emma, for making my morning so bright and happy. I hope you and your Mama love these pictures. Enjoy your sneak peek.


iconi Heart Faces--Bundled

I have always loved this picture of my baby bundled up in a new, soft scarf that I had recently purchased. Since the theme over at I Heart Faces is bundled, this picture seemed just perfect.


iconMy babes

I'm a bit of a paranoid mother. I don't trust what is lurking out there on the internet, so I don't share much of my personal life. But I thought it was time to give you a little peek at the little people that make my world go 'round. They make me smile, laugh, cry and scream almost every day...and I love every minute of it. They are my life.

Without these kids, I probably never would have pursued photography. I may never have known the fulfillment and joy that I receive from this hobby. Without them there would be no reason for me to pick up my camera every day. Without them, this blog would never exist.

As every photographer knows, photographing your own kids can be pure torture! It generally involves a whole lot of frustration on both sides of the camera. My kids try to cooperate, they really do. This day they each gave me about 3 minutes. I didn't get exactly what I was hoping for (20x24 images for my wall), but I did get a few shots that I think are pretty darn cute. But don't take my word for it, you can be the judge for yourself.

Here are my babes:

Noah (my motivation)

Wilson (my laughter)

Scarlett (my patience)

Lyla (my joy)
