Our Annual Trip to Lagoon!

This year we went to Lagoon (again)! This is by far the best year for us! The crowds were really small so we were able to get on every ride as many times as we wanted to. The kids are getting older, so we were able to venture out of kiddie land a little bit. Plus, Benjamin (who is timid with the fast scary rides) is old enough to watch abby at the end of the line while Thomas, Stephanie and I went on some of the faster rides. Then, Stephanie is old enough to be CRAZY!! She dragged Thomas and I on every ride she could get too! Steph and I did Wicked together this year, and I was more nervous than she was!

Abby on the other hand HATED all the rides that moved! (That's a lie, she liked the train and . . . . . and . . . . oh yeah, the benches - she loved climbing on the benches)!

We got there as the gates were opening, and didn't leave until it was closing! We had an awesome time!

Family Portrait Session

Sorry guys, photography is such a big part of what I am, that you have to put up with me when I post these pics of people you don't even know!!

I thought these ones turned out beautiful!

My First Maternity Session!

I finally found a pregnant woman willing to let me put her in lights! Utah moms are a lot less willing to let you photograph them with a bare belly! She is a close friend of mine, so I gave her this as a gift for her birthday, which happened to be a few days after she delivered her little girl!

It's kinda funny, because Thomas came into my studio when I was doing these, and he was sooooo embarassed that he had seen a bare belly - for anyone who knows my hubby, I'm sure you can totally picture him backing slowly out without making eye contact with the couple! Poor guy - he puts up with so much from me!!!

Some Wedding/Engagements

Here's a wedding I just finished, and their engagements from a couple of months ago!
btw, it is the transfer over to the blogger thing that makes these look bitmapped, the original files are fine :-)
