Check out the great pictures I took yesterday during a family photo shoot of my dear friends of 10 years. I've seen the transformation of Cathy and Brooks from crazy college graduates, to lifetime partners, to amazing parents. Their kids are just so freakin' adorable!
Beautiful Olson family
Owen wanted no part in sitting still to take pictures.
Devon had fun riding her tricycle. Check out those baby blues.
Owen had fun scootin' around on his fire truck

back of card
If you want any cards to hand out to friends or family, let me know and I will make sure to send you some. When the website is up, I will redo them to include the website address...but for now this is it.
I hope you all had a great time with your friends and family over the holiday. My time was spent with John, my aunt, uncle, grandma and two of her dear friends (like grandparents to me). We had an amazing gourmet turkey dinner and then we all snuggled up near the fire, had our tea/coffee, homemade pumpkin pie and watched 'Ratatoulle'. A lovely evening!
I am definitely blessed and thankful for so much this year, especially everyone's support. Thank you!

Wed and Thursday took me to Montana and Portland for work. Upon my return on Thursday night, my flight got canceled...so my co-worker and I rented a car and drove home. The joys of business travel. Today I had to play catch up with work and help take care of John while he's still recovering and unfortunately, dealing with a fever. But, he got to shower today! Woohoo for showers! LOL
Last Sunday was the 'harvest festival' with John's family. His brother, Bill, and his family came into town from CA. The rest of John's sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins and kids joined in the celebration...that would be around 50+ people. =) woah! My immediate family is about 17...certainly not big. It was great for the picture taking...which of course, I did. So here are a few fun photos that I can share of John's family.
Brothers and Sisters (Katie, Bill, Lisa and John)
Look at this face!! I crack up every time I see it. Mason (one of John's second cousin's kid) has a HUGE personality..so freakin cute!
Georgia, John's niece, is just sweet and precious as can be!
Steele (Mason's brother) is such a little man. Love his grin. =)
Carey, John's sister in law, was teaching the kids how to play a game.
Westin, John's nephew, got caught looking like a chipmunk. This picture cracks me up!
John's mom's hands with Owen's (the youngest of his nephews). I thought of retaking this photo to have her fingers close together, but John's sister, Katie, said this is exactly how she holds her hands and uses her middle two fingers most often. It was a sweet example of how their mom really is.
The crazy Lucas gang (John's sister's family)
John's brother and his family (The Carpenters)
John's youngest sister and her family (The Wallace gang)
The whole family together. It was amazing we all held still to get a great shot...with everyone smiling too. Way to go guys! We had a great time seeing everyone.
As always, so many more pictures were taken that I could share, but I have to limit myself. ;)
Now on to the fun part of my day....yes, on a Friday night, I'm going to try to finish editing some photos from my family photo shoot and get my website rollin'. I'm super excited.
Big congratulations to my friend Monique Lowe http://www.moniquelowe.com/ for getting her photography business off the ground and launching her website. I'm right behind ya sister!

Look at these precious hands
This scene makes me want to be a mom...how adorable all curled up.Look at these blue eyes...and blue buttons to match. This picture makes me giggle!
Look at the fun sea shell
The picture I took before this one, all the leaves completely covered her head. I totally remember being a kid and playing in the leaves. So fun!
How exciting to find a big stick in the woods.
Love the intent look while coloring. He is an amazing artist and loves his playdough too.
When I was in Italy, I got this shot while playing in San Marco Square. This is probably one of my all time favorite shots. When the photo is blown up really big, his eyes are so green and he has such a look....I love it!
These girls are so adorable.
Look at her pondering away.
This cute little girl is completely intrigued by my dolphin tatoo. =)
She also loves her my little ponies and this squishy dinosaur... CHOMP!
This kiddo was so proud to be a flower girl and especially loved her tiara.
Well folks...that's all for now. Enjoy your weekend!

The first group of pictures are of weddings. My most recent wedding are great friends of mine, N&J ...congratulations you two! My dear friends, Judy and Dean, let me take their engagement photos and I also got to capture their beautiful wedding day. So hard to choose just a couple pics since there are so many fun, and gorgeous ones to choose from. There are more weddings I photographed this year, so I just included a couple.
a picture of her bouquet...that I made ;)
D&J's wedding. Here's a great shot of their decorations (done by Donna at DiStephano winery http://www.distefanowinery.com/. The photo in the background is one I took of them during their engagement shoot.
