I was 12 when my sister was born. She was so cute and tiny.  And, well, she’s still cute and tiny.  But she is about to have her own baby.  It is killing me to know I won’t be in Utah when her little arrives.  Killing. Me.  But at least I got to snap a few shots of her belly. Love you baby sister and you are the cutest thing ever.


It happened.  She did it.  She went ahead and got herself married.  I can’t believe what a beautiful bride she made, and what a good sport she was when we were taking these pictures in the rain…. it was freezing!  Love you Steph!


When this cute mom suggested this particular park for family pictures I was thinking “huh?”.  I’ve been to this park to watch a gazillion soccer games and would have never thought of shooting there….. just goes to show, sometimes we miss what is right in front of us.

At the beginning of the year I was able to take this guy’s 3 year old pictures ( a little late).  How fun it was to be able to take his 4 year old pictures too…. (a little early lol).  He is one of the cutest kids in the world, and my girls miss living next door to him like crazy.   And I miss living next door to his mom.

So my sweet sweet, undeniably adorable, totally wonderful, one of my favorites, NIECE came to live with us for a few months before we moved to Oklahoma. It was so wonderful to have some adult company while my husband was working out of state, and it was a great chance to get to know her better…. since the last time we spent A LOT of time together she was 2 and I was babysitting her, lol.  It was a fun two months, she and my daughter became really close friends, and I got to relive the life of an 18 year old going on 3 dates a week and having her pick of guys.   (Granted, I never was as cute as she is, and didn’t have quite as many guys knocking down my door).  When we left for Oklahoma, leaving her behind to move in with Grandma and Grandpa was so hard.  It was like leaving one of my own behind.  Luckily for me, she decided to stick with one of those guys, and I got to fly back home in August to take their engagement pictures!  She seems extremely happy, and I’m super happy for her.  And him.
