My family that lives in Utah was in town this last weekend and since all of the grandkids were together we decided to do a portrait session.  Obviously, I am a big believer in family portraits and as often as possible and sometimes I am met by some resistance, but it is ALWAYS worth it.  And once we are done and everyone sees the results they are really happy that I insisted.  But it is definitely not easy while we are doing them.  Just because it is my family, doesn't mean everyone cooperates perfectly.  My poor little niece has a double ear infection and was in no mood to have her picture taken.  And my little baby boy, well, is a 4 month old ever in a mood to do pictures?  But I LOVE the results.  They are a pretty good looking group if I do say so myself.

My little Leo is still at that awkward baby phase at 4 months old.  At 6 months is the perfect time for baby pictures, they are starting to sit up on their own and really smile and laugh.  He was sliding out of that chair like crazy, but it was still pretty cute :)

These are some of my MOST family clients/models.  I could be biased though because this is my little sister and her cute little family.  I have been blessed with 9 of the most adorable, photogenic nieces and nephews, 7 on my side and 2 on my husbands.

We did this shoot while Carlos and I were on vacation last month in Utah.  We spent a couple of days with my sister's family in Logan.  Logan is this beautiful little town on the very northern border of Utah, almost Idaho.  We had such a blast!  This day was particularly fun, one of those days I will remember always.  We didn't do anything in particular, my parents came up and we all just hung out, but it was special.  We did their shoot at a near by park, so gorgeous. 

Check out some of my most favorite people in the world.

For real, I LOVE these girls!!!  My sister, Laura, and I met them at church back in 2000 when we were all single and livin' it up.  Oh my goodness, the good times we all had together, back in the day.  Plus, we have all stayed really close even though we have all, at one point, moved away, when we get together, it is like no time has passed.  I can't believe we all are married with kids now (well, mine is coming very soon - I was the slow poke when it came to settling down.  It is so fun to see all of us grown up with our own families.  Michelle and I have already decided that her baby, Nick, and my baby are going to be best friends!  I did this shoot for them while I was in Utah in July. Loved it!

The Psuik's have lived next door to my parents in Utah since we moved there back in 1999, we just love them (even though they decided to move away last month).  I know my parents sure do miss them living there.  But I was so excited when they asked me to do a shoot with all the grandkids while I was there in July!  It was so fun to see everyone.

0056.jpg0032.jpgCheck this guys out! He was such a stud, posing for me like crazy.  I LOVED it!

Do you know how dependent on technology we are?  You really don't realize it until something happens like your computer dies.  Yes, my computer completely gave up the ghost last week and I was lost.  All of my weddings and other shoots are stored elsewhere (and backed up), thank goodness, but everything on my desktop was gone, including my emails and calendar (so hard to get through a day without those).  Best Buy was able to restore a lot of what was there, but any programs that I had were completely gone and that has been the hardest part.  Re-installing, remember everything that I had on there, calling/emailing to get passwords and activation codes again.  Finally, finally, I think I am back up and running at a semi-normal pace.  Yes, and we learned everything the hard way.  Get an online back-up for your computer!!!!  This process would have been FAR less painful with that.

Anyways, so I am pretty far behind on editing (it's kinda hard without Photoshop).  But I was able to edit a couple of weddings and shoots and I wanted to get up a preview.  There is so much more to come.  This summer has been crazy busy and I have so many amazing images that I want to share.


First is Bryan and Lynn's wedding.  It was held at a Barn in Oxnard.  Soooo beautiful, plus they are such an amazing couple.  It was such a pleasure to be a part of their day.
0130.jpgI loved this shot from their wedding.  I edited how I normally do, but then I I decided to have a little fun with it.  I love the feeling of the picture.
0147.jpg0181.jpgKent and Maika were married at the Newport Beach LDS Temple.  They are such a sweet couple.  Kent is from Logan, Utah, where my sister lives!  Carlos and I are going up there this next week and I am going to be able to do some bridals for Maika.  I can't wait!
0207.jpg0273.jpg0381.jpgA year ago I was able to do some family portraits for the Pratt Family,  when cute little William was only a baby.  I love when I can watch as little families grow, such a fun part of my job.  They will be welcoming a little baby girl into their family in November!  So exciting!
0100.jpg0106.jpg0107.jpgApril teaches  the viola and violin and she called me to help her with some pictures for her new website.  I was so excited and a little nervous, I had never done anything like that before.  But I am SO excited with the results.  April is SO fun and if anyone is looking for a teacher, let me know and I will send you her way.
