The Barnes family booked me for family pictures several weeks in advance so none of us had any idea that we'd be wearing snow boots for the shoot :) It was a FREEZING cold day and after much deliberation we agreed to just buck up and go into the cold just for the sake of getting it done! I was soooo glad that we did. The snow made for some cool effects, and I was super happy with how all of their pics turned out. We busted out a full photo shoot in about 25 minutes including one warm up in the car. They are such a fun family to spend time with.

I met the Whiteus girls at a great building in Old Town. We had access to the roof of the building which was AMAZING. I loved the background with a bunch of old, worn buildings filling up the negative space. We also were able to do a few shots in and old soda shoppe which was incredible. My only regret was that I didn't have more time to explore before the sun went down. Yes, the backgrounds were fantastic, but the girls really stole the show. Their pictures turned out great and I had a fun time hanging out with them.

By brother and his family came up to Pocatello for a family photo session and some individuals of the kids. We didn't have a lot of time and the wind was blowing like mad, but lucky for us after about 15 minutes of the wind-blown look, the gusts died down and made for pretty stinking good picture taking weather. What I learned from our speedy photo session is that we don't need an hour to get some great shots. Teagan and Hudson both were very cooperative and the whole crew looked great. Love 'em.

I always say the best time to photograph a newborn is 2 weeks old and younger. Ava came to see me when she was nearly 7 weeks old, and I wont lie I was a bit apprehensive, only because the bigger they get the less they hold still :) Ava was perfect, though. She sat as still as could be wide awake. Our only difficulty was getting her to sleep. She fought off the z's long and hard, but we eventually got her out. I think she is such a beautiful baby and she was so good.

Well, these are some of my favorite people not only to take pictures of, but to spend time with. We headed out on a freezing cold crazy windy day, and I with two little gals' hair blowing every which way I was a bit worried. So after the first set we headed into old town to see if we could find some shelter and it worked like a charm! The pictures all turned out great and I had so much fun with these guys besides losing Kirk's glasses, everything went perfectly :)
