Disney Time!

We took a couple of trips this past year that haven’t been blogged.  One to Glacier and one to Disney World.  It’s time to share some of these photos!  We’ve just been too busy until now to get to them.  We’ll start with the most recent trip this past November.  Ellia loved it.  Well, we all loved it!  We were able to take in Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Sea World.  The trip was filled with tons of fun, a little work and LOTS of play!

Airport layover!  Time for a movie….

Magic Kingdom afternoon parade:

Perhaps a little pose for the camera?!!  She put big smiles on Ellia’s face….


One down…

Ellia was so proud of her new balloon and the Magic Kingdom at night!

The elevator she could see through!

A nice grandparent moment at Sea World.


A Cousin Cookie Bake!

Each Christmas Eve, a cousin cookie bake occurs at Amy’s uncle Bert and aunt Diane’s house.  This year our daughter had her first opportunity to take part in the fun!  We’re pretty sure she enjoyed eating the sugar more than she did putting it on the cookies!  Thank you, Rebekah, for helping out and Bert for making sure the cookies didn’t burn.  Here’s a few fun shots from the afternoon….

Eating this cookie would’ve brought the blood sugar a bit high!

Merry Christmas!

Wishing you a Merry Christmas from our home to yours……

Family Highlights!

Christmas is nearly here!  We thought this would be perfect timing to highlight some of our family shoots from this past year.  Thank you for making amazing memories.  It’s been a great year! We are so blessed….

Karl and Kristen: Engagement

These two lit up the shoot and we cannot wait for the big day next August!  We love seeing natural personalities shine during these sessions and they weren’t afraid to let it go and have some real fun.  Karl and Kristin, the two of you were incredble!  Thanks for making the time with you both a real treat!  Here’s a few that caught our eye….
