August 26, 2008
i just booked our flights last night! we will be in california (yuba city area) from september 10th to the 18th. if anyone is interested in scheduling a session with me during this time, please email me, and we’ll set something up:)

i’m so excited to see these two:) i had a blast taking these…it was fun to get my parents away from everything, and just see them together. (clearly i have a thing for doors:)

i had a session with these three precious girls on friday evening. they were so sweet, and their parents were SO much help! i’ve never photographed twins of this age, so it was all new to me, they definitely like to go their own way, but i think that we succeeded in getting some great pictures! mira, the older sister was so great with the little ones, jillian and morgan.

the ness family…

this is seriously one of the sweetest families ever! heidi is the older sister to my good friend hannah (remember her twins?). heidi, chris and their children are missionaries in africa, and are leaving again for four years next month. i can’t think of a more amazing calling than what they do. i feel honored to have been able to spend a small amount of time with them, and i hope that they feel that i have captured a small piece of “home” for them to take with them:)

heidi had a vision of her children in the back of a rusty pick-up truck, eating washington apples.
she found the truck on some property belonging to a friend of their family, who was so sweet to let us all take over the space for an hour. i hope this is what you had in mind! i think it’s adorable!

everything went so well! these sweet kids were so easy to work with even though it was seriously over 100 degrees outside!
thank you heidi and chris for letting me capture your beautiful family!
i hope you love the results!

a visit with the fam….

August 18, 2008
my family was here visiting last weekend, and we had such a good time just hanging out with them all! (we were missing a few key players by the name of heather, josh, emma and naomi, but hopefully next time!)
here are some photos of our time together:

my cute parents, and my cute boys

the boys love to get “balloon animals” from a street vendor when we are at market. this time eli asked for “spiderman shooting a web”, and dylan wanted hulk.
i think the poor guy did an amazing job! it’s seems the kids thought so as well!
i just love how their little mouths are exactly the same in these two pics…it must be a boy thing:)
Photobucket
look how happy they are! unfortunately, hulk lost his leg pretty quickly…dylan didn’t seem to mind:)

the whole group

and a little bit of “london bridges” to end the day

i guess most of the pics i took were at market:(
although i have a whole post coming of just my parents!
i took them out later on sunday for some pictures of just them, and i’m so excited about how they turned out! hopefully i will get them up soon:)
thanks guys for coming and spending some time with us, it means a lot!

these are designed to be printed 20×20,
but there are so many size options. if anyone is interested in something like this, email me, and i’ll send over a file with all of the details, and pricing:)

talk about girl fix…
this is just what i needed! i SO enjoyed this session! maddison and maci are perfect big sisters, and little mindi was perfectly content pretty much the whole time. i had such a hard time deciding what to post here, i have so many more that i love!
i start to feel like i overuse these doors, and then i see the pictures, and i’m in love all over again!
i couldn’t think of a better spot to have captured these amazing little girls!

and the winner is…

miss terra yaney!
email me at beth_feigner@hotmail.com with your address, and i’ll get them to you!
if anyone is interested in purchasing a set of the prints, email me:)
thanks for all of your comments!
Photobucket
and what’s a post without picture?
this was taken with the lensbaby 2.0.
i’m having so much fun with this new little toy!
here is my new kitchen wall.
this was a long time coming! i’ve had these prints for a couple of months…once i was ready to purchase the frames from ikea, they were nowhere to be found. after lots of calling and checking to see if they had come in, my friend toni (who has a wall of her own that we are working on) picked up 14 frames one size too big for the prints. after a couple of trips to the glass shop and eric cutting the backs of the frames, we have what we wanted to begin with. so worth it!
i was a little nervous putting up my own prints, but i think they look pretty darn:)
they are actually apple blossoms from some trees in eric’s dad’s garden.
here’s a link to the inspiration. i don’t have a wall big enough for nine, so i thought four would do…

to celebrate the completion of this project i thought i would hold a little giveaway.
i have in my hands a set of four 5″x 5″ apple blossom prints the same as these.

if you would like them, leave a comment, and on tuesday morning i’ll have eli pick a winner!
