Alliyah poses


We had so much fun taking pictures together. I didn't pose her at all. She would have me turn around, she would do a different pose and then say okay turn around you can see me and take a picture. I love the last picture, although it freaks me out that she is only 5 years old. AUH! I have more to post, but I'm going to bed :)

I want to give you all a heads up that my family is moving to Portland, OR. We are super excited about the new adventure although I am very sad to leave all the wonderful, kind and unique people we have met here. I have learned so much. I started my business here and am so grateful for all of the support and growth I've received.
We will be leaving in June. I will not be taking any more pictures after May 14th. If you would like family pictures I will only be taking a few families pictures so please schedule with me right away. I have a wedding I am doing in May and with moving I will not have time to do a lot.
I will only be taking pictures of friends or previous clients. No new clients. Sorry.
If you know anyone in Portland, OR or Vancouver, WA please send them a link to my blog and hopefully I can start taking pictures this summer while in Portland.

Thank you!!

Finally I get to eat my yummy cake!
Mom I'm tired. Please give me some milk! No more pictures.

How time flies. I finally got the hat, the cake, the onesie and everything I needed for what was in my mind for this shoot. I couldn't have been happier with the final shots. These are priceless. I only wish that I had these for all of my kids!

If you are interested in getting priceless pictures like this please call me. The pictures will take about 1 hour. The package will include everything: the CD of pictures, sitting fee, cake, balloons, onesie, hat and darling backdrop for $215.
The cake was made my wonderful friend, Kelsey. Please visit her blog here.

If this doesn't make you smile. . .

Then I don't know what will! Is this the cutest, cheesiest smile you've ever seen! Love it. I took pictures at a local preschool last week. I just started laughing when I saw this picture. So darling. Really this little 4 year old is one of the most photogenic kids I've ever taken pictures of. I've had the opportunity to photograph her on 3 different occasions and every time she is so cute!

Kennedy & Kensley

Are these the cutest cuties ever! Their mom had the cutest accessories. It was such a fun photo shoot. Their Dad is one of the coaches at the University. Kennedy, 6, was so good at doing whatever we were telling her to do. In her beautiful red dress I was really trying to get her to show some personality and I think she did such a great job! And although Kensley can get around just fine, she actually stayed put for some beautiful pictures. She had such chunky legs. I loved it!! I will share more as I get them done.

My baby turns 1

Well a month ago my baby turned 1! I'm a little behind in posting if you haven't noticed. Sorry I haven't posted any new photos for a while. I've been busy the last few weeks with photo shoots and plan on getting them posted soon!

Viva Las Vegas

Wow, just got back from a fabulous photography conference last night. It was in Las Vegas for 4 days. The WPPI is the biggest wedding/portraiture conference. Thousands and thousands of photographers together in one hotel, the MGM. The energy, the creative spirit there was so inspiring, fun and eye opening for me. I hope to share a few things I learned there. My favorite speaker I went to was on Tuesday. Her name is Jasmine Star. Here is her promo video she started out with. It shows her spunky personality and inspiring nature. She started in 2006 and she is now famous. Wow!
I can not tell you how much I enjoyed being there all alone and going to the classes I wanted, seeing the vendors I was interested in and eating lunch wherever I felt. Sometimes it is nice to be alone, soul search a little and meet new people. I met a lot of very nice photographers and hope to continue learning from them. I love this journey I am on and appreciate all of my clients that have let me take pictures of you and your families. I hope to keep pushing myself to newer, better places. Thank you.
I appreciate all of those that want to comment!
