Sela is Three!

I am a three year old mimi! What a sweet, imaginative, always active, a little bossy, a cell phone guru, that calls me at the perfect time, telling me, "Mimi, I am sooo grumpy today. I kicked my chair over, dumped out the toys, I threw things. Mommy told me I didn't sleep well." Love it!
Happy Birthday!

Happy Valentines Day!

I must admit that I did have to take this in a couple of shots, but it still was fun to explain to Sela what we wanted her to do. So cute and she loved it, both in taking it and seeing it.

This beautiful child is my "muchly" anticipated grandchild of a very good friend of mine. Tracy, her daughter use to watch my kids, seems like yesterday..... Can't say enough about dimples on a baby! He is so beautiful. Congrats families!

Another beautiful little boy named Graham. It must be the name. A very proud mom and dad and especially Grandma that was ever so patient through this shoot.

The Sauer's have been coming every Fall since Olivia was around 6 months old. I enjoy their friendship and seeing how much they have changed from year to year.

Chuncky Monkey Baby Graham

Graham is now 3 months old. Time flies whether we want it to or not. I know my daughter is much better than me at enjoying the time she has now with them. I love and admire that about her and wish I could go back and do that part over again, if I had the chance. I miss them at that age, love them now, but miss them then.

Lacey called me for some of her photos from her wedding- I can't believe it has been 3 years! Now she is a beautiful mother. All I remember is how stinkin' freezin' cold it was! I felt sooo bad having them come outside for the family photos- but oh, so worth it. Nothing like beautiful evening light. All if forgivin' when the photos are done. Just thought I would share.

Brittany Loves Jason.....

Best ever response coming out of the temple! So fitting for this beautiful girl and lucky boy! I don't think they could have laughed, smiled, and loved each other more!

Beautiful Britt

Brittany is as beautiful as she was the first time I saw her at the age of 5. Funny, sweet, always smiling, and deserving all the best that her marriage will offer her. Lucky man, Jason.

Jonathan & Lindsey

This is my new "niece-in-law". Jonathan and Lindsey had a beautiful wedding. She did such a great job in planning, the reception was wonderful with many family and friends. Many happy days to follow.


Check out our other blog for dinner to celebrate Oktoberfest!

Our new baby Graham

My always naked, toe painted, band-aid loving grand-daughter Sela. Absolutely NEVER a dull moment.

Graham was born at home on July 17th. A healthy 8 lbs for being 2 weeks early. He came just four hours before we left on our trip to Oregon. Great timing. He was just over one week old when we took the photos. So alert, beautiful and strong!
