Little sweetie...

I just have to blog about Alanys, my sweet 4 year old!  She is my spunky little girl who doesn't do much around here to help out.  When you ask the girls to clean up, she doesn't.lift.a.finger!  Usually.  Until recently.  I don't know what changed, but this last week, she has been the best helper ever!  I don't even have to ask her, and she will start picking up!  Or even if I ask one of the other girls to do something, or get something for me, she is off and running to do it.  So awesome!  I am just in awe over this change, and I am loving it:)  So Saturday she got rewarded with a strawberry frappacino from starbucks....She was just thrilled!  It's the little things.  I love this girl!

Daniel and Michelle {Minneapolis Wedding Photographer}

Michelle blog
Michelle blog2 copyI just realized that I never did blog about our trip to COLD Minnesota a few weeks ago for Dan and Michelle's wedding.  Michelle is Frans' niece and she was such a beautiful bride!  It was awesome to be a part of their wedding day, and we hope that they had just as much fun as we did!  They got married at a church in Minneapolis, and being as it was such a cold day, we were only able to get a few outdoor photos.  Here are a few pictures, and I will be sharing more from our trip in the next few days!

blog slacker...

I've been slacking the last week or so on here!  I am feeling down-right crummy today...  I have a cold that is just kickin my butt!  I am hoping that I wake up tomorrow morning feeling a lot better :)  And if not, then at least I'll have these two sweet gals to keep my happy!
My two year old Trina is so into having her picture taken lately.  At least once or twice a day she will get some dress up clothes on and tell me to take a picture!  Gotta love it:) 
Happy Monday to all!

Taryn's 6 month photo...

Finally we got her 6 month pictures done...only a week late!  Poor care bear got attacked this month!  She was oblivious of care bear for the first couple pictures, but as soon as she noticed her, she wouldn't leave her alone!  It was sure good for a few laughs:)

Caleb and Nikki {Phoenix Wedding Photographer}

Caleb and Nikki were married on Saturday at our church in Cave Creek.  What a fun couple, and we had no shortage of smiles from them!  We had our photo shoot at the Desert Ridge Marriot again, and this time the sun was out!  My last two photo shoots there were overcast skies.  I haven't had a chance to really look at all of the pictures I took, but from looking through them quick last night, these are the ones that caught my eye.  I will post some more after I have a chance to edit them._MG_1852 These three girls were so cute...the perfect little flower girls!

Nikki, the beautiful bride:)

IMG_5929 We walked out of the resort and there was this sweet Ferrari parked there, so we thought it would be cool to get a picture of them standing close to it...the owner of the car came over and said "go ahead...sit in it for a few pictures!" 

It didn't matter if any of these folks missed their workouts that morning....I had them running and jumping enough to make up for it:)  And they smiled all the while....
IMG_6299 I love how I just caught this look between the bride and her father right before they walked down the aisle!

and another amazing cake by Kaija....

Forstie Family....{Phoenix Family Photographer}

My brother Brian and wife Erica and their family were in town from Washington over Christmas break, so we made time for a family photo shoot while they were here.  They have been married for 12 years and have never had family pictures taken, not even in a studio, so this was exciting!  Erica probably still has rolls of film that are ten years old that she has never had developed! :)  She's been my good friend since before they were married, so I can tease her about that and get away with it! 
This day was very overcast and quite dark by the time we started taking pictures....but I still like how they turned out.  Here are a few from our shoot....
I love this picture of the two of them...
