Those Sparkling Eyes

My baby boy, Arthur, turned four, and it is so exciting and so sad, all at the same time.  He is the sweetest and silliest little person, and the older he gets, the more we get to know this amazing little guy.  I love his humor and his happiness, and I loved capturing the sparkle in his eyes, but especially, I loved capturing this moment in time.

Derek at 11

My son, Derek, just turned eleven, which meant that I had the privilege of taking his portraits.  I love taking portraits, but taking portraits of my own children is especially fun.  I love documenting how they have changed and grown.  And taking pictures of my Derek this year, it blew me away how grown up he is getting.  I sure do love this boy!

The Amazing Philadelphia Temple

This past fall, my family was privileged to be a part of the dedication of the Philadelphia Pennsylvania Temple.  It is a very special place to our family, and so we really wanted to have a large print of it above our fireplace in our home.  But I couldn't find any good pictures to use - the temple was too new.  And so, in December, when I went to Philadelphia, I took my own pictures, and I love how they turned out.  It was perfect, and hangs in our home now.  Here are some more of the shots of the Philly Temple that I got as well.

Beautiful Pennsylvania

If I didn't already mention here before, but I have moved to Pennsylvania.  And Pennsylvania is absolutely beautiful - rolling hills, forests, farmers fields, and beauty everywhere you look.  I feel like it is a constant feast for the eyes.  I love it so much, but because we were busy moving into our new home and overwhelmed with that, I found our gorgeous autumn slipping away before I could get it on camera.  And so, I snuck out with my three year old, and we went on a hunt to get pictures of the beauty that is my new home.

And here is one of me with my little guy - so you know that I am not always behind the camera ;).

A Florida Paradise

This summer, while we were moving across the country, we had the amazing opportunity to stay in my sister's condo in Destin, Florida for two weeks.  It was so wonderful, and I couldn't get enough of the white sand beaches, emerald water, and amazing sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico.  We even splurged and went on a dolphin cruise, which was amazing, and was where I got some of my best pictures.  It was so hard to leave this beautiful paradise, but at least I have the pictures to remember it by.

Nathan, the Senior

A few days before we moved away from Idaho, I was able to squeeze in one last photo shoot - senior portraits for my handsome nephew, Nathan.  He came to town just for me to do his pictures, and we had a great time, and I love how they turned out :).
