A gorgeous family

I met up with this wonderful family this morning. Rachael and I are on a photo message board together, so if was great to finally get to meet her in person. They are from Coeur d' Alene and made the trek over into my neck of the woods for some family pictures. Her kids did awesome despite the freezing temperatures this morning. I did feel bad for Baby T the end of the session her lips were turning as blue as her gorgeous eyes! She was such a trooper though!

C was more interested in watching the ducks than looking at me! I don't blame him - they are more interesting!


Look at all her hair. She is just a couple weeks younger than Emery and I just can't believe how much hair she has. Just adorable! Can't wait to be able to put Emery's hair in lil' piggy tails!

Growing Up

way too fast. I downloaded these and then just kept looking at them on my computer screen thinking, "He is not that big. He is not that grown-up looking. Where is my baby?" I don't get to share him enough on here because he won't let me take his picture, but he saw me taking pictures of Emery here and said he wanted to touch the fence (hence the finger on the fence) for a picture too. Can't argue with that!

Under Construction

You wouldn't guess it from this photo.


Wouldn't it be nice to sleep through anything??? We (or should I say Trevor) put new siding on our house this weekend (we put new windows in a couple weeks ago). I have no idea how she slept through the saw, nail gun and hammering, but she did. Right until I went in and took this picture and as I was closing her door apparently the tiny creak wakes her up...figures!

A Holiday Session

I had my first Holiday session yesterday evening with the L family. They are all just so much fun. We were downtown and went for some not so traditional holiday pictures and I just love how they turned out! Thank you so much L family and I hope you enjoy your sneak peak!

Being able to dress your baby in a pink, puffy, pretty pettiskirt...that's what having a girl is all about, right? :) I bought this shortly after Emery was born because I knew I would have to take pictures of her in a pink pettiskirt. Since we had one last nice day of weather on Wednesday I decided to break it out of the closet to see if it would fit and it does for the most part. I'm sure she will be able to wear it for a couple years, which is great!

A total snapshot, but I just love it. A glimpse of our afternoon. Pretty much everyday when Emery wakes up from her nap Teagun asks me if he can go in and play with her. I can hear them laughing and giggling in there and then Teagun comes out and asks if he can get in bed with Emery. Emery stands there hanging on the edge jumping up and down while Teagun jumps from one side of the crib to the other. Just love how I captured her actually holding still looking at me and caught Teagun in the middle of a jump.

Dress Up

So after the poop incident when trying to take some 10 month pictures of Emery, I decided to try again that afternoon and dress her up a little for them. Teagun had gotten a pair of Uggs when he was born and for some reason they never looked very boyish to me, so he never wore them. When I had Emery though, I pulled them out of storage and she finally fits in them. They are soooo cute! So here are a few more 10 month pictures of Emery.

I was feeling black and white for these pictures, but thought I would throw this last one in color also so you can see the little boots better! :)

15 Years

Today is mine and Trevor's 15 year "dating" anniversary. I was thinking about it the other day and we have been together for half of my life...crazy! I did talk him into an anniversary trip (I had asked for recommendations a while ago), but we won't be going until December. We are going to go on a week cruise to Cabo San Lucas, Puerta Vallarta, and Mazatlan. I'm really excited! I tried to scan a picture of us on our first date back when we were sophomores in high school - a homecoming picture, but I couldn't remember how to work the scanner, so I found this picture from prom our senior year that was already on the computer (we are on the left if you can't tell!) :)

10 Months Old

Happy 10 Months, Emery! I can't believe she is going to be one in 2 months. Crazy how fast the second baby grows up...way too fast! She is still content just cruising around furniture and crawling, thank goodness. She has no interest in letting go, so I am hoping it will be a bit longer. Two teeth finally broke through last week. She is a climber...anything she can reach, she climbs up on. The other day I was folding clothes in my bedroom and walked out and something caught my eye in Teagun's room and there was Emery on top of his bed standing at his headboard playing with the toys on the shelf. Oh, and she definitely has a little attitude. I am pretty sure she will be beating Teagun up within the next 6 months. She already swats at him and "yells" at him. They are going to be so much fun when they are

I tried to get a couple pictures this morning, but right after this picture, she sat down and crawled away right into dog poop. sigh...

Baby A - 5 days old

Oh goodness. I got to photograph the sweetest baby yesterday. You may remember his mama from her maternity pictures last month. She has a c-section on Monday and was up moving around like nothing when I was there on Saturday. Made me feel like a big baby! I'm pretty sure I would have been laying in bed still. :) lol...

Congratulations J family - baby A is just a doll! Enjoy your sneak peak!

Arrrrr, Matey!

It is International Talk Like a Pirate Day, afterall.


Another Conversation with Teagun

from this morning.

Him: Mom, you're a cute girl. You are going to raise into a nice gentleman.

a gentleman, huh? lol...
