This is my favorite kind of photo session to do...Gorgeous couple, gorgeous attire, and no stress non-wedding day, along with the bride being my sister. Pretty much perfect. Not to mention the setting being beautiful with lots of natural light and indoors so we were warm. Yep, about as cushy as this job gets :)
The last time we took Allie to a cabin she was only just over a year and didn't really know what we were doing. This time she was really excited, and since a snow storm came through the night we got there, she was even more excited to play in the snow for the first time this year.
It was so fun to see our good friends and meet some new ones and I definitely think we will plan another trip to all get together again soon. Here are a few pics from the weekend:
Every time I take pictures at Wheeler Farm I always enjoy it and the pictures always turn out great. I am totally going back again and again until we leave the Salt Lake area. I loved the outfits the Hyde family wore for their pics- so classic. And how cute is their baby boy?!
Oh my goodness these two are ADORABLE. It was so fun to take their engagement pics and I am excited to do their bridals soon too. I have family coming today, so I've worked on these around the clock and I managed to finish them all! No part one and part two on this session! Although, I wanted to post so many more and had to limit myself :)
Last night for our Young Women activity we talked about our inner beauty and I got to take pictures of the girls. We seriously have the cutest girls ever. You can definitely see their inner beauty coming out in these pictures and see that each one is so unique and special. I hope you like your pictures, girls!
Mackenzie is the best friend of my sister and an aspiring photographer herself. She really wanted some senior pics with her dog, Rory, and also with Mel and her boyfriend Nathan. We decided to do a little shoot and at the same time she did some maternity pics for me. I will be sharing those soon, but for now, here is Mackenzie:
This last weekend we had the pleasure of attending a birthday party for my cousin's 2 year-old boy. You may remember some pics I took of him from a year ago. It was a SUPER cute party and I got to do a little photo session with the kids and some fun props. Take a look:
Allie was so excited when I told her we were going to take some pictures of her friends. These girls just love each other and had so much fun in the little time we got to see them. You might remember the pictures we did previously with the three of them. This time I tried to keep Allie out of the picture, but they sure had a lot of fun throwing flowers at each other.
Steph is one of my best friends. We've known each other since 7th grade and have been lucky to live pretty close together our whole lives. She has had an exciting couple of years with her wedding and a baby-on-the-way. Only one more month to go and she'll have a new baby girl. Congrats Steph; I am so excited for you and Rawlin!
Well, I haven't quite finished editing all of my Florida pictures, but I am almost done. I thought I would start posting the ones that I have finished and I'll get to the others later...
Sorry these aren't in any particular order. I am being lazy and not caring so much about that right now :(
Mike and Misty just had their first baby. She is such a sweetie and they are such cute parents. Unfortunately, Hailey decided she didn't want her picture taken this evening and kept her mom busy trying to calm her down, but we still got a few cute shots. Here are some of my fave:
We are finally getting a few nice days here and there that allow us to get outside. This last week we walked over to see the horses. Allie was ecstatic and even more so when we got out the carrots to bring along.
To get her to look at me for 2 seconds I told her there was a bug on the camera...there ended up being a bug in my hair so I wasn't completely lying :)
Since BYU has been playing so well this year Trey has been really into watching their games. He had been wanting to go down to watch them in the tournament in Vegas, and since I had never been there I was totally on board. We decided to stay in Vegas one night and spend the rest of the weekend with some of our best friends in St. George. We drove to St. George a couple Thursdays ago and stayed there, then went out to Vegas the next day.
It wss finally warm enough today to get outside for a little bit and go to the park. Allie was very happy about that. I took my camera along, mostly just to get some pics of Allie's sweater since it cost ten bucks and I needed some pics of it to get my money's worth :) Here are a couple o my faves:
Allie has a new obsession other than horses now...playing dress up. She puts on one of her tutus everyday and has to wear the "heels" that she got for Christmas along with it. She says "I'm a pretty princess" and I have no idea where she got it from since she doesn't watch any princess movies really...I guess it really is ingrained in us as girls :) Anyway, I had to document some of this "phase" (I hope.)
We escaped the snow this weekend and went down to St. George to see our "twins." It was relaxing, fun, and wonderful. We especially enjoyed the 65 degree weather on Saturday...
Thanks Tad and Candice, for a weekend we needed very much!
More pics to come when I get CS5 and my "new old" computer :)
