The Whole Fam Damily Family Pics - Antelope Island Family Pictures

I seriously don't know why I look forward to family pictures.  It's the most stressful day ever. But it's always worth it when I see the final result.  I love these pictures! My favorite though - Deacon getting punched in the face with a smile on his face.  I wish I had a video of the thud when he hit the ground. But he got right back up with a smile! Such a funny kid. 

Big thanks to Emma's Chris for taking these pictures - and lots of really ugly selfies.

Deacon & Emmy's Inspiration Shoot

Tonight was so fun.  Not just from a photographer's perspective - but from a momma with one of her best friends.  Chelsea and I talked about doing this shoot for quite a while, but I'm glad it finally happened.  Even if the babies didn't cooperate as well as we would have hoped.  I'm so bummed I forgot my memory card.  Chelsea and I took turns with her camera. But I know we both would have grabbed a few more shots than we did if we had two cameras.  Rookie mistake.  Oh well.  That's what happens when I am mom and photographer.  Something gets forgotten.  

I can't wait to watch Deacon and Emmy grow up together.  I hope Emmy and Deacon and Tim and Boston continue to grow close as friends.  I love living by family.  But it's been obvious that although we have lots of close family by, my friendships mean just as much to me!

Deacon's bowtie was provided by Jonnie & Nash.  Love them!

Emmaline's Prom

I got to be the photographer again for Emmaline's dance pictures for prom.  Even though her date was a complete idiot (seriously boys.... girls are not your property), she was still able to have fun.  She looked BEAUTIFUL!  I'm proud of her for going the extra mile to make her dress modest.  She's a true beauty inside and out!
