How cool is today!? 11.12.13!! I mean seriously! What a memorable day! Could not miss posting today!!! 11.12.13!!!!

Hello! Hello! AH! I miss my blog!  It’s little pieces of me, reflection, frames of moments, of memories!!

It’s been a  little full  lately! Blogging! AH! So behind! Sorry. Sorry.

I kind of had to beg for these 4 minutes of pictures of my girl!  Oh to be the daughter of a photographer!

Madison came home from school today & she just looked so beautiful that I was so moved to take her pictures.

She wasn’t quite as moved as I was to “take” pics, but she let me, if she didn’t have to wear shoes……

My baby is growing up on me! Fun to see her alive in who she is. She just finished up soccer season & is now playing basketball! Loving every minute!!!

5th Grade is exciting! Making new friends & enjoying her amazing teacher!! It’s really been a fun year for Madison thus far!!!!

I love you Madi girl!

.happy monday. {a day in the life}

Just received a text from one of our dearest friends, Paul Halverson, with these pictures!!!  (Thank you Paul, your iphone photo skills are off the charts!)

He & his family are awesome & this weekend got to hang a bit at ONE of the three weddings we shot! (love you all so so much)

Anyways! Instantly knew I had a blog post… even with my animated eyes, that were literally saying.. “cheese!”

Yes, THREE weddings in three days!! How they all lined out blew my mind, & that we did it even blows my mind more, but yeah! We did it! Which leads me to a few thoughts…

1. In the midst of hard work, attitude is key! No matter what, keep a happy attitude!

2. To all of those around me, thank you for your support! Seriously I couldn’t do what I do without you! You all know who you are & I just love you!

3. Ben! I love you! Thank you for shooting with me this weekend! & mostly for ALL of your support & strength! I love you so so much!!!!!!

.the big reveal. {redding, ca photographer}

The Big Reveal!

I have had the beautiful honor of capturing incredible moments in this family’s life.

I absolutely fell in love with Starr when we met at Starbucks for a bridal meeting!

Everything in me hoped she would hire me! So thrilled to have captured their wedding!

I still pinch myself when I show off their album, or look back through their day!

Getting the news that Starr was expecting brought tears to my eyes! So excited to see their family grow!

Jake & Starr! Congratulations! Oh my goodness! So excited for you!
