Orchard Wanted!

I've searched Kitsap County high and low for an orchard location, and I've found ONE little one, but I have yet to get permission to shoot there. I've tried, and tried hard, but the owner is never home. So, I've left him notes and will continue to try because hello! An orchard is pretty much a fairytale to shoot in, at least to me. Maybe I'll grow my own orchard someday. Yeah, the girl who can't even keep her lawn alive...

But anyway! On to the pictures I took in one of the many orchards in Utah...

Could my little second cousins be any more ADORABLE??? I love these kids!

Love to Laugh

This is my Aunt Missy and Uncle Doug's family who I ADORE*! They are such wonderful people, and one of my favorite things about them is that they love to laugh! It is always a fun time when we're together and I miss them! Now who's coming to visit me??? :)

So, I need to back up a little. I mentioned that I went to Utah a few weeks ago, and it's all thanks to my cousin Tricia who flew me down because she wanted to give her mom (my Aunt Missy) family pictures. I might be a little biased, but I think that is the sweetest gift ever!

Anyway, at the end of that big family shoot (peek coming shortly), they wanted pictures of this angel in her baptism dress if there was time. I'm so glad we made time for that! She was baptized earlier that very day, and she was positively glowing! I think these photos have something extra special about them, and it has nothing to do with me and everything to with this little girl. Heaven was close that evening. :)

All that Pretty Personality

Here is the first of the sessions I'm going to post from my trip down to Utah earlier this month. I loved lots of things about that trip! It was so great to see so much family (this is my cousin's little girl), and it was fun to take pictures in some new places! I loved how all of my sessions down there were completely different.  I think we did just about everything... scenic, orchard, urban, rustic...!

For this particular session I got to shoot during the early sunrise hours. I've always wanted to do that, and the lighting was beautiful, as was this little lovey girl! It was so fun to capture so many sides of her little personality. And if there's one thing I'll always remember about her at this age, it's that she loves shoes!

In fact, I think she's got her sad face on in some of these photos because I tried to go for the barefoot look and take off her shoes for some of the pics, haha. Big no, no! :)

We thought she might want to wear my big yellow shoes because she loves to put on grown-up shoes at home, but I think she still was too bummed that I took off her shoes. But no matter, I still love that picture. Watch out, Tricia! She'll be wearing big girl shoes before you know it! Love you guys!

A Garden Wedding

Oh, wow. I've been so anxious to share some photos from the gorgeous wedding I recently photographed! This beautiful, sweet and kind couple had the most lovely wedding in their grandparent's 20-acre garden last month. I can't get over how beautiful it all was. Perfection! Anyway, I loooooove weddings and was so ecstatic that they chose to me to photograph them. What added to the fun was my good photographer friend Jill Holyoak came along to second shoot for me. She rocked it and took several of the pictures below. Thanks, Jill! Anyway, after being at their wedding and going through all the pictures, I kinda want to go hop in my wedding dress and relive my special day! :)
