2 weeks ago, when it was sunny and 65 degrees, i had the opportunity to photograph the most beautiful pregnant chick out there! (i’m allowed to say that and play favorites, since i am lucky enough to call her my own sister!) whitney is 37 weeks pregnant here, and her and adam are anxiously awaiting (along with everyone else) the arrival of their very first babe!  i can not express to you how excited i personally am to find out whether this baby is a boy or a girl, and start loving on this child immediately!!! whitney and adam are going to be the most amazing parents, and i’m busting at the seems with excitement for them!!! xoxoxoxo

Whitney, you look so radient and stunning as can be. Love is all around you and Adam as you await the arrival of this special delivery. How lucky Baby V will be.
We are so excite to welcome yet another special child into our family.


sweet, sweet little leah seems to fit in just perfectly with her family! mom and dad adore their new little girl, and i can only imagine the best of friends her and big sis cece will be!  i was nervous how sleepy and cooperative leah would be at 15 days (a bit older than i typically like to shoot), but she was so nice a sleepy, as long as she had a full belly! just perfect!

matching outfits already!:)

what a gorgeous family! congrats to you all!

chandler turned 3 years old on Easter Monday, so we decided to celebrate his 3rd birthday on Easter Sunday.  I decided to go with a “peter rabbit” theme, since it was on Easter.  luckily after ordering a few peter rabbit books and DVD a couple months ago, chandler quickly fell in love with the stories.  his excitement and fear of mr.mcgregor was a joy to watch each time!  a fun theme to play with. and most of the decor was edible!
a carrot (birthday) cake of course was so absolutely perfect! made by such a sweet girl, brittney.  i gave her a few ideas of what i had like, and she nailed it! such a talent she has, not only making delicious cakes but, sculpting and molding fondant into what looks like real life (miniature) vegetables and of course peter!
if my guests’ didn’t enjoy easter dinner, then they were for sure to have full bellies after dessert, along with carrot cake, we had marta’s cookies.  she also perfected a painted peter rabbit cookie, 3’s & carrots., carrots in “dirt cake”, acorn squirrel treats and bunny tails!:)
a big thanks to eddy’s mercantile for suppling some of the party decor!mr.mcgregor’s garden table scape. edible creations for the win!peter rabbit was hiding in the watering pail again!

even a peter rabbit Easter egg hunt, thanks to chandler’s aunt whitney!

a big thank you to our family who came to celebrate with us, made food, gave gifts and made chandler’s 3rd birthday a memorable one! we have the best people in our lives, and i will be forever grateful!

kari & seth’s wedding is just around the corner…..but first, showering the bride is a priority!  you may have remembered kari & seth from their fall engagement session.

i met kari years ago at the salon she currently works at, and i know that she is a fabulous stylist…..BUT….kari, i think you could pretty much quit your day job and move to disneyworld, and start working as cinderella!!!  after seeing kari’s shower, and going through all of kari’s photos from the shower, i quickly realized…..kari looks like a modern day cinderella! her beauty on the outside certainly shines, but her heart is just as beautiful and kind like the princess i mentioned! her shower was beautifully planned, decorated and executed by her bridesmaids and family.  of course, i can’t wait for the wedding in may!
an adorable blue and white candy bar!the dessert table fit for a queen…..or quite a few princess’ 😉
cinderella and her prince charming
bridesmaids and jr. bridesmaidsone of kari’s MOH’s and shower visionary: cindy!kari, 10 princess’, and one tiny prince charming!:)
