Beautiful sisters

This little doll is one I know well. She is like a little sister to my boys. We absolutely love her. She brought her big sisters over for a photo shoot the other day and the three of them were such a pleasure. Thank you girls :)

Is this a little Brooke Shields or what? This child is beautiful. I'm just getting started on the editing from this sitting but I'm in love with this picture and had to post it now. More to come later.

Wow!

What a crazy, fun photo shoot! My little studio was bursting at the seams yesterday with eight of the cutest cousins you've ever seen. This family has reason to be proud, their kids are just beautiful. So family, here is a sneak peak at your photo shoot -- expect a CD next week.

This family had two darling newborn babies. One of the dads came so we were able to do a mini newborn shoot as well.

Happy newborn preview

This little guy was all smiles. I couldn't resist posting the first two pictures I've edited because he looks so sweet. I wish I knew what he was dreaming about :)

It's October!!

The weather is cool, the leaves are crisp, and the pumpkin patches are open for business. This has to be one of the best in the valley, it's in South Jordan, just south of The District. They have about a dozen tractors for the kids to play on and a mini corn maze, not to mention more pumpkins than I have ever seen in one place before. If you know of a better one, let me know!

A preview

I had the best time this morning taking pics of two adorable kids. They were so good! Mom had gone all out on baby's outfit -- starting with the most hysterical shoes I've ever seen. Seriously, the girl had on zebra stripe baby high heels. They were too dang cute. I've only just started to go through the pics, but I had to put a preview up for Mom. Isn't this the cutest baby!

Saturday adventures

There was a feature on KSL a while ago about roadside eats where they featured the Road Island Diner. It's an actual vintage diner that was trucked across the country and restored right here in Utah. Ever since I saw the feature, I have been dying to check it out for myself and take some pictures there. I finally got my chance on Saturday. I took my sister and a couple of her kids -- we'd been meaning to take pics of them and we both thought the diner would be fun. We stopped for a picnic on our way there and then enjoyed shakes at the diner. Walking through the door was like going back in time. The restoration was extremely detailed. I would definitely recommend a visit (but don't expect your meal to be speedy).

I could have edited off the chocolate ring around my nephew's mouth, but it just felt so right to leave it there :)

Darling newborn

I got to spend yesterday evening photographing this sweet baby boy and his family. He was curious and wide-eyed the whole time. He reminded me a lot of my boys :) So here is a sneak peek with more to come later:
