Ahlia's maternity shoot

I got to take Ahlia's engagements AND her wedding pictures last year and now she and her husband are getting ready to have a baby boy!! I was so excited to take these maternity pictures for them!!

The light and colors were so gorgeous that night. I love the colors reflecting in the water! And not to mention that Ahlia is super photogenic.

She has the most amazing eyes... period.

Will and Sierra

Sierra and her husband's family were in town for his brothers wedding last week. They are from Vegas and used to live in Idaho at the same time that my husband and I lived there. I took their engagement pictures a few years ago and it was so nice to be able to see them again! We had a lot of fun shooting these pictures, other than the fact that it was extremely hot that day (from an Oregonian's standpoint... remember... they're from vegas.) but we made it through with out dying! 

That is one good looking family!

Dan and Beth's Wedding!!

My little brother got married this last weekend and his bride has AmAzInG taste! I wasn't the hired photographer but I brought my camera anyway so I could take some pictures of my own :) just LOOK at these flowers!! They were so flippin' gorgeous!! My good friend Deborah designed all the flower arrangements for the wedding and they we so beautiful!!

This was her bouquet! So lovely!

Ok so this was the backdrop for the ceremony, stunning.... even with the torrential downpour! We were all prepared for summer weather and mosquitos and just as the ceremony was about to begin - THIS happened....  the bride made this arch and wasn't even able to stand under it! We were stuck in a tent. 
If there was ever a couple that were completely meant to be together, its these two. I have NEVER seen my brother like this with ANY girl. But when you get Dan and Beth in a room together, you can really feel how much they love each other. And I am SO excited that Beth is a permanent part of our family now! She is so awesome!

This is by far my favorite photo out of the ones I took. I was really trying to stay out of the photographer's way but I'm so glad I snagged this gem!

Congrats Dan and Beth! 

This was the reception venue.... GORGEOUS!!!

The Dahl Family

Every time I visit Idaho I get to take this family's pictures! I was room mates with Kori in college and we have stayed friends ever since. She just had a baby in December and, of course, it had to be a few DAYS after I left from our Thanksgiving visit so I wasn't able to do newborn photos or family photos with their new baby. But OH. MY. GOSH!!! that dang baby is C-U-T-E!!!

Just look at that baby's cheeks!!!!! GAH!!!! And that little boy knows how to love the camera for sure!!

So I got a new toy...

 So I bought a Canon 6D full frame camera and I couldn't be happier with it! Compared to the Rebel I was shooting with before, well lets just say that the 6D dances circles around my Rebel. The Rebel is a GREAT camera - don't get me wrong - but it was SO time to move to bigger and better things.
The amount of clarity I get with this camera seriously blows my mind. But that's probably because I've been living in a sheltered bubble as far as cameras go...

 These are straight out of the camera. Yeah, I was pretty impressed too...not just because of the image quality but also because of the fact that my daughter actually LET me take a picture or her.

The Thompsons....Prepare yourself, I have fallen behind in posting photos!!

This is my sister-in-law and her family. She is also a fellow photographer! You can check out her work on  her website. She's pretty awesome because she loves to shoot with film! Which probably makes her a better photographer than me :) She's located in the Seattle area so go check her out! Whenever she and her family come down to visit us we do each other's family pictures.

Their little boy, Asher wasn't really in the picture taking mood... we had to bribe him with treats haha!

These are so magical! The light here at Cathedral Park is absolutely stunning and the backdrops are incredible. 

I'm so glad we caught some good interactive photos of Ruth and Asher. They turned out so awesome!

Austin's Seniors

Austin is one cool kid, I tell ya. He wants to go to school to be a film producer... like one of the big time film producers.... how cool is THAT? I think it's awesome when kids have big dreams and plans to reach them. Way to go Austin!!
