You know the saying......

He who takes the child by the hand, takes the mother by the heart.
So this entire family has taken me by my heart. They are like CJ's other family. He thinks he is their third child. To say he loves this family, is a huge understatement. Hunter is like the very first friend he has ever had. Kristena has been such a blessing in our lives these past two years, I have been so thankful to have her take care of CJ when she could. But now, she goes on to bigger and better things for her and her family. I am so proud of all the descisions she has made, but we miss her dearly! Not that we never see her!
So that is what made this photo shoot such a delight!!
And you know I love you too Aubrey!

Beach Mini sessions

were tons of fun. The best part is meeting all the new families. This beach session was an entire block of children that hang out together. One of the neighbors organized it, and I was like an observer of a really fun outing. The kids were great, and I may just have to move down on this street.

East coast fun...

What do you do for that fall look in a state of evergreens and unclimbable trees? You recreate that east coast season, you drive into the wilderness, buy some colorful leaves, and bundle your children up. Believe it or not, all that was planned, and then we show up, and it is freezing for California weather, and to top it all off, it was raining, and that made those leaves look red and orange. yeah, I said "rain" in California. Like the third time this whole year. Luckily I bought an umbrella at Target the day before. Nevermind I was going to use it for shade at recess duty. The boys had a blast. I did too!

Regina's Wedding

Just some pictures of a recent wedding. I don't know why I love the shot of her dad walking her down. My new goal is to try and capture as much emotion in each image, and this one speaks to me with sadness and happiness all at the same time. Thanks Regina for such a great day! We had a lot of fun.

Talking to Ariel

Couldn't picture a sweeter child. So behind in what I promised I would post, but came across this tonight, and had to post it! More on "Ariel" later.

My sister

Okay, this relaxed with days to go. Unbelieveable! I wasn't this calm and ready for my baby EVER during my pregnancy with CJ. Does it have something to do with the 10 books on natural childbirth she has read? Maybe it is that older sister, I-know-what-to-do-at-all-times syndrome. Is it because she has this amazing sister to offer advice and support? BINGO! Just love this picture, and it sums up her whole pregnancy. Honestly Alana, I have never seen you happier.
Can't wait to give out those kisses to my new niece/nephew!
