This is my (gorgeous) little sister, who agreed to model for me months ago. We had the perfect setting, in the mountains. We were hanging out at my parents cabin in Utah and Bethany just happened to have this skirt on hand ;) The lighting made me so happy, the sky was so very BLUE and the wind just added the perfect touch. 

Bethany is that kind of girl who people just adore. She is clever, funny, pretty, stylish and incredibly fun to be around. She is an artist, writer, and an amazing photographer. Her blog is a fun place to visit... take a look if you have a second. She is going places people... and she is MY little sis. (Ok... bragging done. For now.)

Her birthday was yesterday and I realllly wanted these posted for her big day. But then the power went out last night and so it just didn't happen. Gah. But here they are, only 4-5ish months late. And there are a LOT. I couldn't leave any of my favorites out.

Just for fun.

Sometimes it's just nice to get out of the house, hang out with some friends, and snap some photos.

Several months later...

I have not been around these past months... and months. When I decided to take a break from my photography business I thought I would still be around... posting pictures of my kids for sure. I guess my long break was needed. I have still been taking pictures though! I haven't stopped, this is something I still love and I just can't stop. This fall I took photos of this lovely family. They also happen to be the last family I posted photos of way back in January! Scout has sure grown up and is almost 2. I loved seeing her fun personality, she had so many smiles for me. It was a cold late October morning, but you wouldn't know that from looking at these pictures (green trees??). Leslie and Kyle, it was so fun seeing you and getting the chance to snap some photos. Thank you! It's been awhile!!

I also took the chance to take photos for a few friends this fall. Each time I did, it made me want to get this business started again! I wish it was the right time for me, but not just yet. So for those of you wondering... I'm still taking this break, even though you might see a few posts here and there. It's all just for fun. It's something I enjoy, but cannot dedicate my time to right now.

Scout is One!

 I am a mom of three kids, I have watched them all grow up so quickly.  But I am still so amazed that this tiny little baby...

can grow into such a beautiful big girl in just one year!

Scout is the first little one that I photographed for a whole year through. We had many fun photo sessions since she's been born (and even a maternity session before she was born :)). Here are all of her photos... Maternity, Newborn, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and today I am posting her one year photos :) Leslie and Kyle did an awesome job with the props and cake, everything turned out great!

And some tears...

We had planned these fun photos inside and they turned out great... but we were also excited that it was a *warm* January day (in the 50's!) so we headed outside to snap these photos with mom and dad. I am so glad it was a nice day!! (And Scout wasn't afraid to give me some adorable smiles...)

Leslie and Kyle, thank you!! This has been a fun year watching Scout grow!
