It was our turn to get our family pics done so I had lori from here take them. Our family has been through a lot recently detailed post to come. But we needed to get our pics done for the year. These pics were hard for me just becuase I am not happy with my body right now. It has been a month since our little Boston returned home and it is hard to still have prego body when you are not and do not have a baby to show for it. So we got all dressed up and headed out to one of our favorite photo spots it is more of an industrial look but I love the contrast. Loved how they turned out and we even did a tribute pic for lil. Boston. My siblings bought this lovely piece of jewelry from here. I love it, it is so nice to just have something close to your heart, it takes away the empty feeling. Loved how the pics turned out. Thanks Lori for all your time and hard work. We are actually headed up the canyon tonight to swap family photos a more fallish look. Stay tuned.
My Syd turned 6 holy cow I am getting old. She is such a cutie and has the biggest heart. We took a test shoot and it did not turn out, lots of factors, weather, distractions etc. So when her new clothes came from CP she asked if we could go again so we made it a date. She did not want to stop and had some great idea for pics. She is such a beautie. And I love her bangs. Thanks Mrs. Ashley for turning gum cut out of hair into a lovely hair do. Love you Syd!!!
Holy cow I think for the most part I am caught up. I do want to add a few more things for the blogg and have Syd's 6th birthday shoot to edit and post but everything I have done recently is up Hooray. Here is just a fun pics of my girls, truly my inspiration that a friend and I did for our Dad's for father's day.
Hooray for gooooood friends. Love this gal and her cute fam. She is honestly my BFF since 7th grade. We have been through a lot, shared a lot and keep going. I loved that she asked if I could snap some pics of her fam. Her little guy is such a ham and made this morning so easy. THese are just a few.
Back during spring break my sis and I caravanned home with our seven kids. It would not have been a complete trip if we did not hit up the city and the beach. So we took a day and headed in to San Fran and stopped at Baker Beach. It was cold, foggy and wiiiiiindy but still snapped some pics for memories.
Oh we have been planning this one for a while. I knew I wanted her in her white dress (which I made out of my wedding dress) and a horse. Lucky for me the gal who works for us has some on her property so we spent a morning on the horses. It was fun and London had a blast although she was a little nervous riding without a saddle in a slippery dress but she did really good. I had to laugh becuase when she was leading the horse it would not budge as you can see from the pic. I also wanted just some simple portraits of her. I usually shoot in the evening as we did this time but we had some thunderstorms coming in so we raced up to the mountain and snapped a couple but then got stuck in a downpour so we made it back to the car and raced back into to town to capture the rest by an old barn and tall grass. I have to admit I love the dark skies in the background it offered some grat soft box lighting for me.
While I was home visiting last spring I had a high school friend ask if I would take pics of her 8 month old twins. I was so excited to see her but to also shoot twins. It was a challenge but we worked with what we had and was able to get a few shots of the moment. The little babe was a ham and loved the camera while the little man was a little aprehensive of the foreign black object in his face as you can see from his expressions. Overall it was fun and great to see them
