When I was little my friends all had favorite colors, they'd get outfits, bows and shoes that embodied that color. I remember being jealous as a young girl becasue I never thought any of the colors were particularly "cool" or "pretty". One day this popular girl in our school asked what my favorite color was and I was so ashamed that I didn't have a favorite color (ok and not wanting to seem like a dork really) I said "WHITE"! She gave me this long hard look and said,"WHITE?! Why would anyone want white to be there favorite color?" It was a pitiful moment for me. But now I can proudly say, my favorite color is GREEN. Not just any green but earth toned greens. LOVE IT! I'd paint my walls green if Bruce didn't hate it so much.
Bruce and I have been working on a new logo for my new website design and I wanted to add green to the logo. When I showed him which shade I wanted he said it reminded him of throw up!


So when I came back from the wedding I did in Canada, I decided to take a break from photography. Work and life has been so hectic that it's been hard not to feel a little discouraged and just pain drained when thinking about editing. But then I got a call from Emily and she asked if I'd shoot her sisters wedding. I said yes without even thinking and after I got off the phone I wondered what I got myself into. But engagement picture day came and I had a blast. Darin and Liesel are seriously some of the coolest people I've ever taken pictures of. They were fun, excited and were open to a lot of ideas that might be a little different. It was a long session becasue we went to 2 locations. The camera loved them and they loved the camera, it was love at first sight.

Here are some of my favorite's although it was SO hard to choose becasue they had so many good ones.

Ryder 1 year Pictures

I used to watch Ryder a couple morings a week and boy has this cute boy grown! He certainly is adorable and full of energy! It was hard to get him to look at the camera let alone sit in one place long enough to get a picture.=)
But in the end that's just Ryder for ya. Here are some of my favorites from the shoot.

Wedding in Canada

So we took this CRAZY trip to Canada just days after getting home from Europe to take wedding photos for a mission companion. The drive was beautiful and it was fun doing a road trip to a place we both had never been. We really wanted to be home for the fourth, so we ended up making it to the wedding just in time, took the pictures and drove right through the night to make it home. Basically we did a 20 hour drive in a little over 24 hours. CRAZY!!

Bruce went up to Colorado to hang with family. I decided to stay and work since I've already taken so much time off. I miss him though...Really I take for granted how much I get to be with him everyday and having him gone feels so weird. I can't wait till he gets home.

Anyways here are some of my favorite shots from the day. Thanks guys for letting me be apart of your wonderful day. Stay tuned for some totally cute 1 year old pictures as well as some way awesome engagements.
