Happy Wednesday everyone! Or should I say… HUMP DAYYY!!! You are all in for a real treat on this fine afternoon because today I’m blogging Alli and Jason’s engagement session. And these two? Well, they made my job very easy. Not just because they’re beautiful people, either. (Although that doesn’t hurt ;). No, it’s because they share such a happy, contagious love. Every time I clicked the shutter it was impossible not capture something lovely, because that’s just the kind of relationship they have. Plus they’re pretty great to hang out with, too :) So enjoy getting to know these two and their wintry engagement session!! Can’t WAIT for the wedding in June :)
Remember lovely Suzi and her husband Ryan? Well, their little girl was born last month, and I had the honor of photographing this new family together!! Their pups Dana and Taryn even got in on the action. Love that! And Eva is just beautiful, though I would have expected nothing less from her wonderful parents :) Enjoy some of my favorites from this sweet session!
It’s Friday AND it’s Valentine’s Day!! Oh happy day! I love this holiday, because I believe love should be celebrated. And I’m not just talking about love between spouses and significant others. I’m talking about love in every shape and form, between family, between friends, between everyone important in your life! So I hope that you’ve all given and received lots of love today :)
Sadly, Jake has to work tonight. (Don’t worry, we celebrated last night with a hilarious movie and I ate a week’s worth of calories via dinner and chocolate covered strawberries.) But that means I’m spending my evening with this little blue-eyed peanut!! Can’t say I’m complaining ;) And Natalie wanted to wish you all a happy Valentine’s Day too!!
Meet the beautiful and talented Livy! She’ll be graduating from Park City High School this year, and I had the honor of taking her senior pictures :) She’s pretty awesome when it comes to kicking a soccer ball around, but really she’s pretty much just an awesome person in general. She was one of my very last shoots before going on maternity leave, and to say it was a good shoot would be an immense understatement. Not only is she gorgeous and extremely photogenic (I mean, just LOOK at those green eyes!), but she and her mom are hilarious. I’m usually the one trying to make people laugh during shoots, but those two had me laughing basically the entire time. Yep, loved this session!! Enjoy a few of my faves from last fall :)
Jake and I actually hosted a Super Bowl party for the first time yesterday. I cleaned the house (a big feat for me these days), we added some chairs to the living, family and a few close friends came over, copious amounts of food were devoured, and everyone sat around watching the slow and painful demise of the Broncos. I mean, yikes. I really feel bad for Peyton and the boys in orange. More than anything I wanted a good game, but I was in favor of the Broncos. Really though, it was just because I wanted to see Michael Strahan look like a long lost Duck Dynasty brother. But I am super stoked that he made it into the Hall of Fame! (I just love that show by the way. Jake says I’m officially a mom because I watch Live with Kelly and Michael now. Whatevs, that’s fine with me. That show is hilarious and brightens my morning. Who doesn’t love a little Kelly and Mike with their breakfast?! Let’s be honest, Jake secretly loves it too, even if it’s “mom” show. Ha. But I digress.)
Anyhow, it’s a sad Super Bowl when the game is boring, but it’s a REALLY sad Super Bowl when the commercials are boring too. Double whammy. Did I just miss the good ones? (I’ll admit I was possibly
stuffing my face munching on snacks and chatting with people more than watching.) Either way, I wasn’t that impressed this year. These were my two favorites:
A puppy and a clydesdale won my heart? Duh.
And of course Ellen is just awesome.
Here’s to hoping next year will be better ;) Happy Monday everyone!
