Sugar and Spice

Just finished editing these pictures from my photoshoot last week. Isn't this little baby beautiful? I wish I could upload the images in their full resolution so you could see how truly gorgeous they are (I sometimes hate posting them online because they differ so much for the actual image quality since I'm too lazy to wait so long for such huge files to upload). But anyway this time I  tried a few new ideas that came to me recently. I am absolutely in LOVE with the tulle pictures--so I am unabashedly tooting my own horn (maybe I'll post a high res of that shot somewhere because it is so cool looking!). 

Thanks again Jana for letting me take her pictures and your c.d. is coming soon! (And for some reason I don't have comments with this blog layout, so tell me what you think on my other blog, because I love hearing what you have to say!) Enjoy!

The high res link for this pic (if you want to see it in more detail) is:

p.s. don't you love how she seems to be peeking out at you? :)

Giveaway Winner(s)!

Okay, I bet you thought I forgot about the giveaway, but I didn't! Let me just say how awesome it was to get so many entries--66 to be exact! It was so hard to pick. Some people wanted to give their photo shoot away to a friend, some people are adopting new babies soon, and others haven't had family pictures done in a really long time! So I've decided that even if you didn't win this free photo shoot, if you sent me an email for this contest, I will give you 15% off of any photo shoot that you book with me. So, having said that (and feeling much better about having to pick only one of you!) the winner was April from! April please contact me within 48 hours to claim your prize. 
Thanks again everyone for entering, and please let me know if you would like to take me up on my discounted offer!

Some more favorites (and finished finally!)

So, finally, I have finished editing my dear friend Meredith's wedding pictures. I wanted to make sure I did a good job, so I took a long while to finish them. But hopefully the newlyweds will like the finished product. In celebration of finishing, I thought I would post a few more of my favorites, including some shots from their reception. (Did I mention it was one of the most gorgeous receptions I've ever been to? They rented a huge white tent, had it in the middle of a lovely tree-filled park, had a live jazz band, wonderful food, a ring ceremony for family and friends unable to attend the temple ceremony, and lots of happy people.) Also, the bride was formerly a member of the BYU Swing Dance Team, which should tell you how fabulous she looked while dancing with her groom. Those two really cut a rug.
Anyway, enjoy! (I know I did. Love you Merz!)

Love how the lighting makes her almost glow.
Possibly one of my absolute favorites from the whole day. Gorgeous.
I loved being able to catch the "real" moments of the day too. These two are so FUN!
Love the blur action going on in this picture.

Similar to the last picture, but I love how her lips are pursed. I don't know why. And the best skin ever. I really need to ask her what she does to make her skin look so flawless!

Apparently the groom likes to rock climb and so we thought this was a funny pose. Their kids are going to love this picture someday, don't you think?? :)

I loved this moment. I may not have mentioned this, but it was FREEZING on this day, and the bride was not wearing a long dress. She was a trooper. But while we were arranging another group to take some pictures, her Dad stepped over and wrapped her in his arms to warm her up and to give her a hug. I guess I love it because I think the picture is lovely, but I love it more for what it shows about the love between a dad giving up his daughter on her wedding day. It's a moment I'll remember for a long time. :)
