aPpLe HiLL

A few weeks ago we went to this great location called - Apple Hill. I was so in love with this background I could not get enough of it. There were so many pretty orchards, old barns and bright colors that I really want to go back soon and do some family shoots there. Maybe I can even get my own family pictures done here...if I can find the time. :)


This was a total impromptu photo shoot that I did with my nephew Gavin and I can't get over how cute he looks. My sister Brianne and I were waiting at their new house for the cable guy to come, got bored (they never come on time and if they say 8 - 12, it always seems to be at 12) and we decided to take some pictures of this little guy (and his cute booty!)

Our dear friends, Matt and Jen Hampton just welcomed this little (and when I say little I really mean little) guy into their family. He was born at 32 weeks weighing in at the grand total of 3lbs 15oz. Click here to get the full scoop. Yesterday I was able to hold this sweet angel and what a great experience it was. I have never in all my life held a baby that small. If you think that you are careful with newborns try handling a preemie - I totally thought I would break him. Aiden is such a little fighter and is progressing everyday, and soon he will be home with his mom, dad and sister Emma who love him so much. Thanks for letting us share in this miracle! We love you guys!

holiday card sneek peak

I just wanted to let everyone know that I will be offering holiday cards this year. I have many designs and styles, and I am very excited about all of them. I am still working out pricing but I thought I would throw this out there so, if you are interested, you can start planning. Once I get all the details set in stone, I will display all the different options. Can you believe that it is already time to start planning for the holidays? Good Luck!

This is my beautiful niece - Kaitlin. She is a great little model and let me tell you she is so ready for the big screen. I told her that she had been hand selected out of 100 girls to be in this photo shoot. Kaitlin was very excited about this opportunity (just for the record I was saying this to get her excited about taking pictures). Her response to me was - "now is it just going to be you there, or will there be directors and stuff?" Hilarious! Unfortunately, I had to tell her it was just going to be boring old me. Kaitlin is very photogenic so anyone that follows this blog you will see tons more of her.

This was another fun shoot I was able to do while I was in Fresno. Paul was so easy to shoot - totally laid back and so cute. Paul is interested in graphic design and photography, so it was fun to hear some of his creative ideas about the shoot. Hope you guys enjoy!
