Preview: Donny & Rachel

 I wish that I could sit in front of my computer and edit all day long. But I need to be a responsible wife and do a little house cleaning. So I edited couple images from my session with Donny and Rachel for you guys to preview. I have a lot of good images to post from this session so come back soon to see the rest. 


I love both these shots! 

Above: They both have such beautiful eyes.

Below: I think this shot is so precious. I love the emotion between the two of them. Very romantic. 


Rachel and Broc

Rachel and Broc are dear friends of mine. I have known them for years and this was my first time photographing them. Crazy huh! Well I must say that this photo session was very fun. HOT, but fun. They were both so awesome to brave the jungle like grass and bugs to get these great shots. We all had welts on our bodies, but I think it was worth it.

My cousin Tim tagged along during the session and actually took some pictures. I was impressed with him because he shot completely in manuel on my old camera after only a short 10 minute run down on how the Nikon functions. Impressive. I think he has a good eye and it was fun having him there.

So please enjoy these photos and the manuel debut of Tim Arnold.   


I love the emotion Tim captured in this one.



Rachel look so beautiful in this shot below. 



I had to post a shot of me at work. This is proof that I actually do take pictures:)  Thanks Tim!




















I love the series below. This was what happens when your photographer asks you to be serious. 


The last one is my fav!

Birthday Card Revised

I had to revise Isabell’s birthday invitation because I love these pictures of her so very much. So here are two more options. One includes a back because it is a post card. I am seriously in love with it, but I still want to know what you think. Leave me a comment. 

Card 1



Card 2 Front


Card 2 Back

Lauren Z - Ok, so i personally like numbers one and three the best. I think number two is a little busy. I think number one shows her cutesy personality and number three is more mellow…”they call me Mellow Yellow”…:) Of course i love the yellow one…and i love postcards. 🙂

Birthday Invitation

I am working on creating a invitation to Isabell’s first birthday party. I have several mock ups, but I thought I would share this one with you. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think!

The Arnold Family

While in Florida I had to get a few snap shots of the Arnold family. If you have visited my old blog then you are very familiar with this family. I have been taking Dawn’s pictures forever. I started taking family pictures of Dawn with her parents and sister. Now I am taking pictures of her own little family. How time flies! Dawn, Tim, and Izzy are super special to me. Not only are they my “bestest” friends, they are also family. I love them so much. Ok,ok. Enough of this emotional stuff. Please enjoy their images.
