Blog Contest WINNER!

Back in May when my blog hit 40,000 hits I announced a blog contest for a free session giveaway. I let it go on because every now and then I was still getting emails from people wanting to enter the contest. Well I decided to end it, and I drew from the names of those who have entered, because there was NO WAY I could choose someone from the entries myself.
The winner is

KIRA LOPEZ!

Kira, contact me and we will set a date for your free session!

Thank you to all of you who entered the contest!

Banx's Newborn Session



Oh my, what can I say. This baby has the GREATEST hair, and I just think hair on tiny babies is SO adorable. My kids barely had any hair when they were born, that's probably why I think it's so amazing. I also tried something new with this session, it was entirely done with natural light, and the first time I got to use one of my "new" chairs! This is more pictures than I usually post for a session but really could not narrow it down. This is probably only half of what I wanted to show! :)







Here he is with his pretty mommy...






















Banx's Daddy is a golfer, and so Banx is holding his Dad's special hole-in-one ball...


Dana, thank you for letting me have fun with Banx! He was the perfect subject! :)

Reid & Reagan's Father's Day gift

This session was a surprise, so I have waited to post anything from it until today! Reid & Reagan's dad is the new Athletic Director at our school, and their mom thought these pictures would be a great Father's Day gift to their dad. I hear that new office needs decorating! :) So we met up at the gym and did some really fun pictures with the kids...

I love this one! I was up on an insanely high ladder...but this isn't the first time I have done this shot, so I wasn't too scared..! The shot is worth it!

One word. SASSY. :)






He had a boost for this one, but he had to pull himself up quite a bit! He did great!






Thanks for a really fun session guys! You both are too cute! Hope your dad loves the pics! :)

Joni & Jonathan's Wedding!

Oh I love weddings! I knew when I took Joni & Jonathan's engagement pictures a few months ago that it was going to be a fun day, and it was! They are so sweet...and so silly together, we all just had a fun day and took lots of great & different photos.











This is our "Abbey Road" attempt...








I love freckles! Joni, yours are so cute!








This is the adorable flowergirl! I think they said that someone on the back end of the aisle told her that her mommy (who was at the front) had bubbles, so she took off running at top speed. It was really cute!





Seriously, one of the best "you may kiss the bride" kisses I have ever seen... :)




The groom is a fireman, so we had the opportunity to do some fun pictures on a firetruck...a first for me!






They got out the big guns for this one...




















Thanks for a wonderful day! I hope you guys had as much fun as I did, thank you for allowing me to be your wedding photographer! :)
