For so many reasons....

He is SO lucky to have her!

Have a safe, fun labor day!


Summer Days....

We have had a very very fun summer. 
I felt inspired tonight to post some highlights. 

As we move toward 9/1/12 (which is secretly the day I internally transition to Fall), 
I cherish the unstructured, lazy, free days of summer. 

Reading stories by headlamp....
 Playing with friends....

Gorgeous friend Kate (wink wink)
 The various sides of my daughter....

 Show offs! HA! 
 Sweet friendships.....

 Crazy boys.....
 Loving girls....

Forts....and High School Musical!
 Girl's trip to Portland.....

 My girl....

I hope you all enjoy the last few days of unstructured fun!

Happy end of summer!


Ulrich Family

Oh this family. 
I've known them a long time. 
They are so sweet. 
I feel so lucky to have captured them at this time of their lives. 

Thanks you guys for allowing me to chase you around! 
What fun!

 Age 5 and Age 8
Felt like I was at home! 

Sweet boys!
 I dig these brothers! 

 Such babes - this mom and dad! 

 I think this sums them up! 

I enjoyed every minute with you guys! Happy day to you!


Sister and Brother

I am up waaaaaay too late tonight. But when they do stuff like this - I have to blog it! 

You see - my kids are a little over 2.5 years apart. They love hard and fight hard. And no matter what - she ALWAYS takes care of him. She always loves him. And now - she does his hair too! 

Briefly - the things I adore about these photos...

1. Obviously the piggy back
2. Jammies
3. Her ballet flats with the jammies
4. His hair totally styled (and hair sprayed) by her
5. Their love
6. Their fun
7. Jumping

I love them! 

Happy Thursday! 


Senior Year Kick-Off

Let me just start by sending a gigantic thank you to those of you that are saying kind things to your friends and family about my photography! I love getting calls and hearing that someone near and dear has referred them my way! I whole-heartedly appreciate it! 

This sweet, young lady's mom was referred my way by one of my favs, Mrs. Kincaid (thanks Melissa)! 

She is beginning her senior year next month! And let me tell you - this girl is smart, kind, goal oriented, giving and so compassionate. Not long after I started I could feel her quiet side as well. She is a wise old soul in that 17 year old body! I loved chatting with her last weekend and I completely wish her the best. 

So reflective and beautiful! I think this picture sums her up! 

This is one of her closest friends. 
These girls - I just loved them! 
Kaari is another smart, kind, loving soul! 
We had to get a shot of this friendship as well! 

And then it was her turn....

Sisters! Check out those curls - adorable!

I am so glad I made you trample through the bushes for this shot! 
You are simply gorgeous!

Ladies - you are inspiring to me and I know you will go far!

Enjoy your senior year!



Bottom line....
These three girls are a few of my daughter's best, BEST buddies!
I feel grateful that she is off to such a great start in friend-making!
Love you girls!

Love you even more when you do stuff like this!

Happy, warm week to you!
