Keepin it Simple

I love that it doesn’t take much to entertain this kid.  I printed this Lego picture out for him and he’s been playing with his paper toys for quite some time now.  Which is a good thing so his mother can get some work done!

Penguins…. and more penguins

I pulled a bunch of crumpled papers out of Cale’s bag this morning and was going to chuck them in the garbage but a penguin caught my eye.   It made me smile that just about every crumpled picture was a penguin.   The cutest part is I don’t think he drew them all.  It looks like some of them might have come from his friends.   🙂

Ryan + Erin { winter engagement }

This engagement shoot was so fun!   It felt great to get out and shoot again after taking it easy this winter.

Ryan and Erin were the perfect couple to brave the elements with.  I was so thankful we had beautiful sunshine the day we chose to go out.  It was a bit windy and chilly but the day was gorgeous.  And I loved that they made this shoot so easy!  I did very little directing and instead just kind of stepped back and caught them interacting with each other.  Definitely my ideal engagement shoot 🙂

Ryan and Erin met at Armando’s just a couple of years ago so we started our shoot there.  I love that we were able to incorporate something meaningful to them 🙂


Last May Ryan proposed to Erin on the back of her truck.
I love that we could include some pictures to bring those memories back.

Thanks guys!  I’m looking forward to your upcoming wedding 🙂

Seattle…. Part 7

We visited the Pacific Science Center while in Seattle. It was fun for the kids. There was a lot to see. The funny thing is though there is this interactive room right when you walk in and it was a little lame. We thought that was all there was so we were kind of disappointed until we noticed some doors that led off to the main attractions.

They had a big play area full of fun toys. As soon as Brady saw this area his eyes just lit up and I ended up staying in this area with him for 2 hours while Matt took the kids around. This poor kid really did miss his toys on this trip.

A funny mirror 😉
