Jonny....a.k.a "Jack"

I love my big brother. He is rough and tough. He loves the outdoors. He's a crazy talented engineer. He's an awesome builder/designer. He loves his doggie-kids. He loves his toys and his hobbies (the pictures below are proof). He is consistent. He is Jon.

I mean, the guy got a tree branch punctured through and lodged in his bicep while dirt biking and rode 2 hours back to his truck and then drove himself almost 2 hours to the hospital! If that's not tough, I don't know what is. :)

Too bad the guy got all sisters. 
Luckily, he's been a pretty good sport about it. 
We love you Jonny.

I'm so glad we got to see him while we were in Utah and take some pictures of him on his "newest toy". I think it suits him well. Don't you? 
Cal thought it was pretty sweet too and was excited to sit on Uncle Jon's lap. Maybe someday he'll get to go for a real ride......

Unfortunately, the light was pretty harsh since this was the middle of the day, but we made do and still caught a few fun ones.

Walker Family

During my Utah trip I was so excited to have time to meet up with some great friends of ours (that we don't get to see nearly enough) and snap a few family pictures. I haven't seen Bronx since he was practically a newborn and this was the first time meeting Navie. They are such cute kids and luckily they put on a great show for Calvin (who was stuck in the stroller with a dum dum :) ) so that he didn't interrupt the picture taking too much.....okay, well at least for 10 or 15 minutes! 

3 kids at close to dinner/bed time + family pictures = not the easiest situation in the world, for sure! But MAN were they all troopers, and I think we ended up coming away with some really good stuff. But I guess that isn't too hard when you have as good looking of a family as this one! Thanks for the fun time you guys! Hope you like 'em!

Lovely

is the perfect way to describe Emily & Drew's big day last Friday. It was just beautiful. Really beautiful. And don't you think Emily makes a stunning bride? 

Can't wait for the rest of these pictures.

Amy & Rob

This is my baby sister and her boyfriend Rob. I had SUCH a fun time visiting these two a couple weeks ago in Salt Lake. I loved spending time with them and meeting Rob for the first time. I can never get enough of my little Amy Sue and love how whenever we get together our laughs get louder, sillier, more frequent, and oftentimes we have to contain ourselves from falling onto the floor--especially when we get to watch Doris Day movies. ;) We have SO much fun together and I just wished we lived closer.

This was seriously one of the yummiest photoshoots I have ever had. The subjects were amazing (I mean seriously....aren't they GORGEOUS?! and so natural in front of the camera!), the location was perfection, and the weather couldn't have cooperated more. The stars were definitely aligned for this one. It was like a photographer's dream come true. I love how fun and silly and in love they are in these photos.

Thanks for running all around dowtown SLC with me you two--I miss you terribly and can't wait for our next fun trip! (Maybe in San Diego?!!)

Well I hope you enjoy!

Patience is a virtue. Oh so many more, coming right up. Promise.

I can hardly wait...

to finish working on this set of pictures of little sister and her boy from our trip to Utah. 
What could be more beautiful than spring in a city by the mountains? I really do love Salt Lake City.

Stay tuned for lots more where this came from this week...

A Little Bit of Family

I have to start by saying sorry to my poor brother and sister-in-law, Matt & April, for having to be so patient while they waited for me to finish their family pictures from March (things got a little crazy with the move and all--at least that is what I'm going to try and blame it on :) )! But I hope they are happy with the results and think it was worth the wait! I had so much fun photographing their little family of three even though we had a bit of a rough time finding a good location at the last minute. Luckily Alyssa was such a good sport and even though she definitely doesn't give smiles away for nothing we caught a few little looks that I thought were just priceless! She's such a content and easy going little thing and we are so glad Cal has such a sweetheart for a cousin! We miss living by you guys and can't wait for your next visit to San Diego!
