Ugly Christmas Sweater Party 2010

There’s something about Christmas and Ugly Sweater Parties that make me jump for joy! I was invited to Adam & Kyla’s 2nd annual Ugly Sweater Party.  Last year’s ugly Christmas Sweater party, I brought the photo booth and it was a blast.  That said, I had to bring my photo booth along for some fun […]

This weekend we were blasted by about 18 inches of snow. I wanted nothing more than to just bundle up with some blankets and watch movies…so that is exactly what I did.  Having moved to Minnesota nearly 5 years ago, I have still not fully accepted these dreadful winters.  It is during this time of […]

Watch Her Grow – Part 2

This past week, I took Emily out for another maternity shoot.  I wanted to mix things up this time around by shooting the session on film.  I have been so giddy all week waiting to see these photos and I’m just in love with what we got.  For anyone wondering, these were shot on my […]

Watch Her Grow–Part 1

I have had several people on Facebook, email, and family back home ask when I was going to post some images of Emily.  Well the truth is…even though she’s now 26 weeks, she didn’t really start showing till very recently.  But now she is a growing almost daily it seems. It’s really been a pretty […]

Well today, we went back in for another ultrasound and discovered we are having a little girl!!!!  Em was right and […]

Zoe is Getting Demoted

It was back in June of 2008 that Emily and I thought about this blog post of “Zoe is getting demoted”.  As many of you know, Zoe is the princess in our house and gets every bit of our attention.  We always call her our “slug” and “ball of love”.  She knows perfectly how to […]

Hi everyone, it’s Emily! I’ve hijacked John’s blog for the day. Today is John’s 29th birthday. I can’t believe he only has one more year in his twenties! I could say he is getting old but that would make me old as well so I won’t go that far.  John is the most thoughtful, loving […]

Basically, this shoot involves going out and finding every shape in the alphabet in an abstract form.  So last week, […]
