The dear M family

The dear M family is one of the sweetest families I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. We had the honor of first meeting them when we first moved to AZ and lived in a little appartment, they were our nieghbors. We enjoyed their company so much, we were quick friends! Not to mention, they take some great family pictures too!!

The M family

It had been awhile since I had seen the M family so I was excited to take their pictures and catch up. There handsome boys play on the same baseball teams as my boys and up until this year also played soccer together. Dad has also been an amazing coach for those sports. The whole family is a pleasure to be with.

Handsome Boys

I've gotta brag a little bit. I took my boys out to take their Christmas pictures and they did great. The complained very little, smiled nice and did just as I asked. Ok, real story, they did do great but it was because I bribed them. Worked like a charm and I couldn't be any happier with the shots I got of them.

And my all time favorite...

MOPS fundraiser at The Grove

Up until now the youngest baby I have taken pictures of was about a year old but at our MOPS fundraiser I was privilaged to take Baby P's pictures. He was so perfect, slept the first half of the shoot and didn't make a peep the secound half. I could have taken pictures of him all day long.

My baby turns 3

With a little bribery of candy I was able to bring my little guy out so I could take for his 3 year pictures. Of course, I pick a day that was over 100 degrees by 10 in the morning. I was drenched in sweat but at least he behaved for a half an hour straight, which is a rarity with him! I was so happy to get these precious pictures of him!! I was very hard for me to narrow it down to just a few to show you.

Miss Jenna's Senior Pictures

I had the pleasure of taking senior pictures for another cousin while I was home.  My beautiful cousin, Jenna along with my aunt and uncle and two of my other cousins came out to help with a location that was all new to me.  We went to the falls (yes, there is actually falls in Sioux Falls).  I had been there a bunch of times but never as a photographer.  I loved it and hope to do pictures there again someday. 

Did I mention she also on the fire department?

One of my favs!!!

I can't believe how pretty she is!

Miss Courtney's Senior Pictures

    While I was home this summer my cousin asked me if I would take her daughter senior pictures.  They wanted to do some pictures around water so I brought her to the same place I did my senior pictures.  It was such a beautiful place that it was hard to pick my favorite pictures to show. 

Look at those beautiful eyes!!

We had fun with this outfit!

Easter Pictures

 When we got home from church after Easter service I stood outside for a minute thinking, I wish one of our neighbors were outside so they could take a family pictures for us.  Wierd, I know but we all were actually dressed up and I wanted to take the opportunity for picture.  Since no one was outside I decided that I was still going to take pictures of just the boys.  I had this beautiful morning sun coming through my office window so I thought I would take a stab at doing indoor pictures using natural light.  Here are the results.

I couldn't refuse sharing a couple extra of my little ham.
