my friend…

October 28, 2009

and her beautiful family.  we met up on a perfect evening while the boys and i were in california.  tina’s husband, brian, drove us up into the buttes to find the perfect location.  i have had the chance to photograph this little guy a few times before.  you can see him here and here.  i can’t believe how much he has grown!

that’s what this family has:)  we have been trying to get together for a looong time to take these pictures, and it finally worked out!  i’m not sure that we could have picked a better afternoon.  the color is insane from the beautiful fall leaves.  i just love this location.  i think i use it every year….

i can’t get over the expression in this picture.  this is why i do what i do.

what you get…

October 27, 2009

when you order the digital image package.  i posted about this new offering back in mid summer.  you can read the post here.  along with the digital images from your session on a DVD with a print release, you get this beautifully designed custom box filled with professionally printed 5×7’s of all the images in your online gallery.

i can’t even explain how beautiful it is.  these pictures don’t do it justice.  the colors are so vibrant, and the texture of the silk cover is devine.  and don’t forget that once you purchase this package, you will recieve 25% off of all wall art, and specialty prints.

my second session while i was in cali was with my best friend and her unbelievably beautiful family.  on sunday evening, we headed out to jamie’s family home.  they were out harvesting the rice, but we found a perfect field that had yet to be cut, and took advantage of all of the beautiful light.  we were done in record time.  the girls were super cooperative and full of personality.  it was a perfect session with a perfect family…

love you guys!

so we arrived in california late friday evening, and saturday we went straight to bishop’s pumpkin farm.  one of my favorite things to do as a kid, i knew that we would go atleast twice while we were there.  on this trip, mimi (my mom) gave the kids a choice between a pony ride, or face painting…eli and nomi chose the ponies.  can you get over how proud she is?  and look at that wave…watch out heather, you might have a 4H queen on your hands ;)

watch out!  spiderman was out to get everyone with his webs.  please look at his little face.  can’t you hear the sound effects with his little lisp?

then mimi got them all carmel apples… well, nomi just wanted ice water.  just look at how my children are gazing at the beautiful, colorful, little droplets of candy covered chocolates, stuck to the ooey-gooey carmel that has been poured over a nice big juicy apple…

apparently spiderman doesn’t eat apples.  only candy, and carmel that is stuck to apples…

emma is giving them the what for…i love how that girl moves ;)  note: her moon and bats with glitter painting…

we finally got them to give up the apples for some play time.  but playing in the toy train isn’t near as fun as playing ON the toy train.  boys…

the boys and i just got back from a 10 day trip to california.  while visiting family and friends, i had the chance to fit in quite a few photo sessions, which i will be sharing over the next week or so.  this one in particular was very special:)  i got to meet my cousins’ new babies!  little kinsley was sleeping, and wasn’t wanting to be bothered…(you can see a peek of her at the end of the post:)  but mister radley was rested and ready for his close-up.  can you get over his sweet face?  his big blue eyes, and full little lips remind me of my dylan when he was a baby.
