When we talked on the phone about taking Ridge's senior pictures, his mom explained to me that she really wanted some photos of him with his truck. So the evening of his photo shoot his mom and aunt walked into my garage and pointed in another direction. I looked to see this senior with the hood up on the car and smoke barrelling out. So let's just say that the shoot didn't start out on the best foot. It didn't take long for things to turn around, though. Ridge was really photogenic and I had a lot of fun with him and his family doing the pics. We ended up with so many great photos. We are planning to do a round 2 shoot, and hoping that his truck might make an appearance that day.

Baby Madden

Well the phone call came in that my little sis had just had a new baby boy, and the plans began immediately to figure out when I would be able to get to Las Vegas to take his photos. I made it there when he was 4 days old, and fell in love with him instantly. This chubby little fella weighed in at a robust 9lbs 9oz, and carries most of it in those scrumptious cheeks. So just after I arrived we did some shopping, and started shooting. Madden's momma was worried he wouldn't be too cooperative, but she was totally wrong...he snuggled right in and thoroughly enjoyed having his photos taken. His dad kept apologizing to him. Telling him that we thought he was a doll to dress up, but he didn't seem to mind a bit. He is such a good baby and I love him to bits. I am so happy I was able to go have that time with him and his mom. Love you guys.

The Hardings

I was excited when the Harding Family asked me to take their family photos. I had taken their daughter's senior photos a couple of years ago, and was so impressed by her. So I knew the rest of the family was sure to be great. Right when the little one arrived I was warned that she is pretty stingy with her smiles, but I love a good challenge. So I pulled out my bag of tricks and sure enough she was smiling in no time at all. We were able to get a bunch of great shots in only a short period of time. Oh, and if you're trying to place the dad of this family...he has probably refereed one, if not many of your games-including some of mine back in the day :)

Esteps & Kellers

I took the Esteps engagement and wedding photos just over a year ago and had so much fun with them. So I was happy to hear from them when they contacted me to ask if they along with some of their closest buddies could get some updated photos. I thought it sounded like a lot of fun, and they wanted to chose their own location so off we went. I LOVED the area they took me to. It was beautfiul. It had been a super windy day (which is the curse of the Esteps) but when we got to the location the weather was perfect. I had a lot of fun taking pictures of these cute couples. We ended up with a bunch of really great shots!

I fell in love with this baby the first time I held him. He is such a perfect little tiny guy. His mom had warned me that her babies chunk up right after they are born so if we were going to catch the newborn we would have to take pictures as soon as they got home from the hospital. So little baby Drey was only a few days old when he debuted in his first photo shoot. One huge plus in having a baby in the summer is outside shots! I loved them all and snapped about a million frames of this sweet baby. (Notice his toes on his chin in the outside sweet) I love him, I love his family, I love his pictures!

The Willies

The Willie's met up with me in Malad to take their family photos. I have always thought they were such a cute little family, and looked forward to hanging out with them. These two little girls were hilarious. They kept me entertained the entire time. We went to a few different locations, and the kids hung in there like champs. We ended up with some really fun shots. My highlight of the evening would have to be when I was talking to the girls about their favorite princess and they told me that Jasmine topped their list...even though she dressed immodestly. Too funny! I laughed about that all night! What a fun little bunch.
