Sometimes I think of a good idea...

Then I have to run out and give it a try right away while the idea is fresh in my mind. The problem is my kids don't like my ideas. I had this idea for a picture of my son sitting on the little ladder with my daughter sitting at the foot of it and they would be laughing and smiling together...yeah right. My daughter screamed at my legs the whole time and son was too cold to take pictures so this is all I could get of him looking down at the ground. Once I realized there was no hope for photographing them together I started to take pictures of the trees and other things around me, which was kind of fun and I think I might go out and try that agian...without the kids :)

Just one little picture...

I am so happy to be finishing up the Christmas season. I ordered some last prints and now I have packaging to do tomorrow. I just need 2 weeks of rest and then I am ready for 2008!!! It sounds crazy to say and I am so happy about it...January is filling up fast, Feb is being booked right now and my website is being made!!!!! It should be a fun year. It's hard to believe this all started just over a year ago. What a blessing this business is :)

Cute, Cute and even more Cuteness

What darling girls I photographed this weekend. They were full of hugs and smiles. I think my favorite part of their session was following them around the house and in their rooms. For some reason this session has a lot of storyboards, so I have to share them.

Sweet Family

Today I went out to the clairmont colleges to take Lisa, Byron and little "miss M"s family pictures. Well as it turns out little Miss M wasn't as in to our family pictures idea as the rest of us were. So almost everything is candid. She loved the stairs and ran up and down them a dozen times. I bet she slept well after this shoot! Lisa and Bryon lets get together again soon...not just for family pictures at Christmas time!

Blogging at 1:35am? Strange night!

I was going to blog earlier and ask for prayer my Dad. He is going in tomorrow morning for possible bi-pass surgery on his heart. I spent the evening at the hospital with my Dad, just crying and talking together. I left the hospital worried and sad, but just hoping for a safe drive home. Well...I almost got home but then was hit by a car running a red light. The good news is I am okay and so was he. It turns out he goes to our old church CCV and he was such a nice young guy. We sat and waited with him for his ride and chit-chated, the cops must have thought we were nuts! I guess I couldn't have asked for a nicer guy to hit me (Nick if you are reading this I am glad you hit me and not some mean guy LOL)

Well I think I should go sit in the bath now because my back is starting to hurt and tomorrow will be a busy day with my Dad going into surgery. I am way more worried about my dad then our can be replaced but my Dad can't. So if you stop by our blog and read this please pray for him. I feel like I could not ask enough people to pray.

*edit on 11-24-07 to say: My Dad is great! When they went into his heart there was no blockages. So he came home and we had thanksgiving together!!! As far as my car...we still don't know anything about it. I guess we'll figure out more after the holiday weekend. Thanks for your prayers!

Joy, Jeff and their cutie!

I had so much fun at this photoshoot for many reasons...#1 Joy has been one of my best friend's since highschool (she was in 8th grade when I met her) so it's great to know that we've been together through silly teenage fights, marriage and now family life. What a blessing this family is to me. #2 they are so easy to photograph! I even made Joy and Jeff be models for at the end of the shoot!

Here's a few of my models.

Brian and Jen

Brian and Jen's wedding was beautiful! They had every little detail planned out perfectly from the decorations to the gifts for out of town guests. I wish I could post all the pictures of the cute things they made like water bottles with custom labels for their wedding and perfectly wraped gift bags. They put so much love and planning into their day and it really showed.

What a fun group of guys. Jen really wanted a jumping picture of the guys and it took a couple shots before we got it. They were good sports in the hot sun. The cell phone shot was all their idea. They had me laughing the whole time.
