Family Photoshoot 2013

Anyone who knows me knows I love everything about a photoshoot.  I just love the planning. For our family photoshoot this year I knew it had to involve a couch and the couch on a road. I just didn't know where I would find this couch. My photographer friend, Lisa, was gracious enough to let me borrow her amazing aqua couch.  Perfection! 
 
We had fun at Gibson Ranch which is truly one of my favorite places to shoot pictures. 
 
This shoot had beautiful light to work with and our photographer Jessica did an amazing job capturing us all in it.
 
Thanks to Lucy who styled me in her amazing jewels and Baby Birdie Boutique for Makenna's headband.  Persnickety, Gap, Children's Place, and Nordstroms Rack are always my go to for clothing options for photoshoots. 
 
 
 













My most favorite boots ever.







 Another photoshoot in the books.  Call me crazy but I am a little sad when the photoshoot is over.  :)

A Feel Good Weekend

 
It was an amazing feel good weekend last weekend.  First weekend of December, full of cozy moments.  We enjoyed Santa's Secret Adventure for the second year in a row with friends. It rained but didn't put a damper on our fun.


(Dinner at Skipolini's at a table for 18. Perfecto)





Best Santa experience ever.  Santa takes time with the kids talking to them. So sweet. Weston didn't say a word to Santa. Nerves.




We are getting a girl Goldendoodle January 4th. I can't believe it.  We went and met seven puppies on Saturday and decided upon a girl. Her name will be Lainey. We have a little "Countdown until Lainey is Here" paper chain hanging on the wall. Makenna rips off a link everyday. Some presents for Lainey are under the tree along with drawings for her from the kids. They are quite excited.






 
Sunday we had a Pajama Photoshoot in the Middle of a Christmas Farm with 15 kids.  Milk, cookies, and jammies.  Such a fun day.
 
 


 
 
I love the feel good feelings that come with this month.

Winding Down The Year

I wanted to share a few of my faves from my last few sessions.  The year is coming to a close.  A few more sessions will happen before this month and year are over. I am grateful for this amazing job. I love capturing memories.  So rewarding for me. Thankful for all of your beautiful smiles.
 






 








 


Holidays are in Full Swing

 
 
We are in full swing of the holidays.  I love it. Thansksgiving was fun. Loved watching Weston in his Thanksgiving Stone Soup Parade. So sweet. Sad it is our last parade.  No more preschoolers.
 
 
 
The twins had a Thanksgiving feast in their class.  Delicious yummy soup we ate together. 1st grade is fun.
 



 
Thanksgiving was at Rainey's house.  Four generations.  Love.

 
We went to Billy's Christmas tree farm and found a tree.  A gorgeous pre cut Silver Tip Tree.  Our best tree yet.
 We are doing our countdown to Christmas. So far we have baked cookies, called grandparents and sang jingle bells, made a gingerbread house, and made and drank hot cocoa. 
Elf on the Shelf came back this year.  This morning he brought ornaments. Makenna was given a dog ornanment and we announced we are getting her + the boys a dog.  She couldn't have been more excited!  A Goldendoodle is what we are going to get. Going to look at puppies on Saturday. So exciting. If we choose a girl her name will be Lainey. 

 
Hope your holidays are going well!
