(cue John Denver)

I'm a leavin' in a packed S-U-V...
Don't know if my kids will be with me!


I do have a years' supply of CHEESE BALLS!

Who am I kidding??? This will last one day amongst the Rascals. They saw that puppy at Staples (where we were shopping for school supplies) and I couldn't help myself...I was laughing the entire way to the register. McLaren couldn't even fit his arms around it!!! Hilarious...I just wondered what "office" would purchase a massive container of cheese puffs? (other than Law Offices of Wade Noble??)

Oh yeah--we'll be gone for a long long time...but maybe I can steal my husband's laptop and throw an occasional BEACH picture up!
Carlsbad, CA --BABY!

I love YELLOW!!

I saw this wall and had to shoot it!! and of course...they let me :) More to come...

Bridal Photography-Downtown Prescott

I loved this session. Its the first bridal photography I've been able to do in Prescott. I loved it because Kristin was thrilled to do whatever I wanted, but she also came with some great ideas and we were able to get 2 TOTALLY different looks.
1) FUN, Fresh and Funky and 2) MOM
(okay so its not a "mom" mom look--I just call it that because I know that's the style my MOM (and Nicole :) would like :) not that its a bad thing...its a good thing too...just hard for me to seperate from my insane color craze!
Oh yeah...she was worried it wouldn't be sunny!!

Ugghh...random obnoxious annoying children...who think THEY need a picture with the bride!!!

Love the "freshness" of this...
Okay FINE!!!! I really really really LOVE this one...and its not in the "fresh, fun and funky" category. Fine! are you happy now??? (all you mothers out there??)

Prescott Family the WEEDS?

Weeds? What weeds? I don't see any weeds. All I see is a gorgeous family photographed in "nature" ;)

I still can't believe I got every single one of the 6 kids, parents, dog and random bug or gofer that happened along.

These images leave me speechless-it doesn't hurt that the parents are beautiful :) Everyone looks so serene and peaceful--exactly how they drove away from the session...NOT! :)
All I'm sayin' is...that's a LOT of feet.
This ranks in the top 2 of all-time greatest images!! (only because its one of the few images I had where the 2 boys in the corner were PERFECT! Go figure.)

This is sized for a 15x30...I was thinking "big" family...needs a "big" board???

Please tell me...

That they will always be like this forever.

(ignore the quality of the "hasty" shots--I knew deep down the moments would be gone in a split second!)

Indy loves getting everybody ready...

These were taken the other day when Indy wanted to be "twins" with Mac. Indy asked me if I could start buying twin shoes, shirts, clothes etc. He even wanted twin hair mohawks, but his is still growing out from his pre-summer hack-job.

Happy Birthday. To me.

Before I lay me down to sleep...
I'd like to thank friends and family
whose love and kindness run so deep.

I had a splendid, lovely, celebrated day...
full of fun, relaxation, well-wishing
and gift-giving... HURRAY!

Thanks for the love!!
31 yrs old baby!!
(Sorry no picture...massage oil doesn't photograph well ;)

Christmas Cards. Love 'em.
Love doing them ;) They'll have theirs in their hand by the end of August :)

So....for anyone who's done a session with me in the past--I offered to do a Christmas in July "MINI" session--for the sole purpose of a killer Christmas card. If everything went well then I was able to get in a few more "extras".

I processed these with an "antique" color...a little different from my favorite color pop!

Fort Knox

Dear little rabbits and squirrels and quaily birds-

I am near tears. My hands are bloody.

I have no more energy to replant again this season. I can't stand to have my 2 year old jump on my back with WWF moves, while I am bending over planting.

I have tried for 3 years and for 3 years you have won.

I'm done losing.

If I ever see any of you near my garden a.k.a. Fort Knox, you will be shot with something from my husbands' either me or my son....he's really really wanting to do this and I've decided I will let him.

I've installed cement posts.

Then I had green fencing put up.

THEN I topped it off with bird netting.

THEN, after you wriggled in there, I put up chicken wire. There is nothing left to put up. I will now have to drop my children in by a crane to harvest my vegetables. The vegetables that I have planted 3 times this summer.

Date Night!!

Ahhh...I love it when "Date Night" is up and running at our house...I think it's been about 6 months since I've gone out with my here's to all of you ladies lookin' for a good time tonight! (My brother sent these images from around the world of some great "dates").

**NO, I did not take any of these pictures!
