: I'm back :

I've been gone awhile.

//it's been one crazy year\\

first of all:

Brandon is home!
for good!
goodbye afghanistan, hello married life.

and second:

I'm pregnant!
with sugar and spice
and everything nice.

++life is good++


I have still been busy with photography.

I haven't been completely MIA - I do have a facebook page.

here are few of my favorite photos from over the past year:

**this one is me** thanks to Brandon for taking it**
as you could probably see, I've been enjoying shooting maternity, newborns, & kids.
I have decided to focus my photography on these areas, and these areas only.
although, I have enjoyed shooting families and weddings, my real love is with new life and the tiny ones.
I am currently officially on maternity leave!
**but I am booking now for October 2013**
I still strive on keeping my prices low,
but still give high quality work.
on any inquiries or
to schedule your session!

My BFF's Baby Shower

:sweet baby, sweet baby, sweet baby squirrel:

my bff is about to become a mother x 2.
this time she is having a bouncing baby boy!

I'm so excited!
beyond thrilled!

..I had to plan a shower..

when halsie first found out she was pregnant, she didn't want everyone to know.
so, we started calling the baby "sweet baby squirrel" (secret code) when we'd talk about him.

naturally, the shower fell around our pet name for the little guy.

halsie picked the color scheme of grey, white and red.
...and I ran with it...

here is the invitation:
the invite is a press printed card - layout put together by yours truly.
for the envelope, I used kraft paper bags. I printed the sweet baby squirrel on them and then sewed up the flap with red string.
the address label was also put together by myself. it is a wrap around label with my return address on back. 
 the decorations came together great.
there was a lot of ideas I had going on, but when it came down to it, I just ran out of time.
so, not everything I had planned happened.
but, c'est la vie.

here is the food table, all put together:
I made tablecloths for both the counter and an odd size table (5'x5').
both cascading grey ruffles.
I loved how this tablecloth hid the counter below.

the honeycomb balls and paper lanterns were purchased at the local party store. 

the food was awesome!
halsie's mom, kelli, and myself made almost everything.
we did have some help from my mom and smith's grocery store :)

nom, nom..
these pictures are making me hungry

kelli, peeking in to say "hi!" 

another view of the kitchen 

halsie and I made this garland.
it was pretty cheap and easy and we got a lot of compliments on it! 

halsie's thank you gifts. 

close-up of the paper flowers we made.
big thanks to whitney and jake for helping me fold all of them! 

mother-to-be's chair. 

the front door. 

the garlands were all made by me.
the white one is just gathered white felt.
and the kraft paper one was made by accident :)
I saw some others online, and when I tried to duplicate them I failed.

..these came out of my fail, and I love them more..

finally, our wishes for baby:
we saw these on Pinterest and LOVED them!
I made some to match the invites and decor. 

I think they are such a neat idea.
and they could be done for some many different parties!
I'm sure we'll be doing them again.

I am so lucky to have such a great bff!
I can't wait to meet her little man.

I'm going to gobble him up.

Danielle- Vintage Inspired Bridals- Utah Wedding Photographer

I'm so excited to finally get to post these!

the wedding has come and gone.
the groom has seen his beautiful bride.
and now I get to share her with you!

we didn't use props for this session.
I felt that danielle (wearing her grandmothers wedding dress) was enough.

what a beautiful bride!

Faith - One Year Old Session - Utah Child Photographer

:happy birthday, faith:
one year old

 little faith. so sweet. so happy.

..so curious about what was going on..

then she realized it.
..and she didn't like it.. 

I managed to catch her off guard a few times. 

or her cousin would play, party rock anthem by LMFAO, to get her smiling and dancing!! 

and she enjoyed her nice bribes (treats). 

..also this delicious sucker (that broke! dang!).. 

she wasn't too sure about the cake. 

I imagine she is looking at mom for approval in this picture. 

she likes it!

what a sweet little girl faith is!
I had so much fun with her family, I want them to do shoots every week!!

happy birthday, faith!
