I remember Dillon from a few years ago from taking his family’s pictures. BEST family…a family full of teenagers. He has been in love with Kelli, like FOREVER. A mission later, they are now engaged and I finally got to meet this pretty face. I love Kelli…she is perfect for him. And I feel like I get the best people to work with…maybe all photographers think that, but I am cursed with the BEST of the best.
A miracle has happened at the Clark residence. I have managed to grow something and it hasn’t died (yet). I know tomatoes need “tomato food” or whatever to keep them from going brown, but that hasn’t happened since the health of my tomato plants is kinda low on my priority list right now. And as you can see, my kids are still alive as well (thank you mom and sis).
Scyping the bread winner… yes I am a baby and I miss him.
Meet Haily & Danny. I love them. Besides her having the most beautiful name (just like my baby’s), she has this beautiful perfect face. Danny is awesome. He hates pictures, like most men right? But he kept us laughing and was pretty darn refreshing. I love them. Did I already say that?
Today my husband leaves for Hungary. Dang it. I have never been so emotional about me and my husband being apart for just a measly week. I am getting weak and wimpy in my old pregnant age. Maybe it’s because I have 3 major photography shoots this week, like 50 million pictures to edit, and right now Sammy (my 4 year old) is sitting on her bed SCREAMING because she can’t seem to control her disappointment about “not coloring in the lines”. Maybe it’s because just moving and walking hurts and I need to pay a visit to the chiropractor before I become totally paralyzed.
Good thing I thought ahead about this and brought in the big guns…. my mom.
Up from San Diego.
This pregnancy has really thrown me for a loop. When I found out Ted had to leave I kinda freaked out and called “mommy” right away….which I always tease him for doing when something goes wrong. Hypocrite, I know. I am so glad she will be around to help carry the laundry up 3 flights of stairs and actually feed my kids something other than chocolate milk….
…. which obviously I don’t even help them with that.
THANK you mom, for coming and supporting this silly episode of mine.
In the midst of a million wedding things going on, I have done a couple of little 1-year-old shoots just in the front room of my house. Little boys. AH the cutest little boys! I feel extra sentimental about taking their pictures….probably because we are having our first boy in late September.
I honestly can’t stand how cute it all is…
OH my GOODNESS!!! June is here, and I am waddling everywhere taking pictures all over the place.
It’s been nice.
All of my sessions have been bridals, engagements, and small weddings…with a few baby and mini family shots here are there. This is the first time I have been pregnant in the summertime so me and baby boy are getting our workout on with the squatting, laying on the nasty ground in downtown SLC, and tiptoe-ing my way to getting some good shots. I am pretty thankful, even though Ted’s job is a GREAT AWESOME job, we still have to pay for this one out of pocket. Had my big ultrasound yesterday so I am still a little giddy and “glow-ie” I guess from that.
Even though this week has been insane, and this weekend will be even crazier, I have to pat myself on the back for blogging (pat pat).
This wedding (Ben and Charese) is selfishly going to be a little special for me. I get to see my friend Katie…aka Ben’s little sister…. who was my bff in 7th grade. It’s been quite some time since I have seen her so honestly I am going to have a hard time focusing when I get to visit her. (Charese, don’t be afraid to scold me for being too distracted…)
Happy weekend everyone!
We are having such a good summer…I hope everyone is getting outside and playing….like…ALOT. We are, and it’s bliss. Please never end summer.
Here is the Harris Family. I think it is amazing how Julie knows almost everyone that I know. No joke. She knows my entire in-law family, my best friends, and a million of my clients. She is by far the most well known person I know. And of course, she is WELL loved!
I really think these are the cutest kids in the world (besides my own). I can’t believe their cute faces.
Darling Bethany & Nate were pretty darn fun to photograph. Nate kept us laughing, and Bethany was meant to be in front of a camera. It’s so fun to see a couple’s chemistry when taking their pictures. I always imagine what kind of couple they will be 5 years, 10 years down the road and I can imagine lots of laughing happening in this one.
Oh the GUILT of not blogging dozens and dozens of darling photo shoots in the last year! Most of you know that we are expecting our 3rd little one the end of September and it has taken it’s toll on this not-so-young-anymore body. I just had to put Courtney up today…she is the kind of girl that you want your son to marry. So very beautiful inside and out.
THIS… is my little baby brother! I never thought I would see the day that I would actually APPROVE and completely ADORE the girl he has chosen to marry. That has to tell you how highly I think of this kid. I am so happy to have Margo as my new sister…seriously I would have hand picked her for my own!
Oh this family is the best! You probably recognize them, they are always on my blog. This year they wanted a snow shoot. YES! This was my first family/snow shoot and don’t let the pictures fool you, it was COLD. These girls were tough and I love the turn-out with their amazing clothes and the snow falling the whole time. LOVE LOVE. Families are getting more and more creative, stepping more and more outside the box for their pictures and I am loving it. These pictures make me love snow, and I normaly don’t love snow.
These last 2 months have been so happy and GOOD. I have fallen behind on blogging, stopped caring and browsing the newsfeed on facebook (is that mean?), checking instagram way less often, stopped following blogs, don’t even check twitter, and still working on cutting out pinterest time (Pinterest is my weakness). I can honestly say that I have been WAY happier. Why have I wasted so much time in my life on those things? WHY WHY WHY?
Ya see… I have these two little girls that grow like weeds and my time with them is already going way too fast. Panic. PLEASE let them stop growing already!
That being said, I hope we all can have less screen-time and more real-life time with people we really care about. Please hold me to this….Happy 2013!
(taken exactly 1 year ago)
we took a few “messy hair” shots at the end as always
