Hello, and welcome to my blog. I'm a natural light photographer living in the Boise, Idaho area with my husband and 5 kids.

What a sweet little bundle Miss Amelia was. I could tell that she's one loved little girl. I love it when parents are so obviously smitten with their little ones. At almost 4 weeks I was a little nervous we wouldn't be able to get many sleepy shots. But Amelia proved me wrong. It took some coaxing, but she finally gave in.

The Oregon coast

We took a really fun trip to Seaside Oregon with my Sister Danielle and her family. It was a vacation even for me since we left Stella home with Grammy. We missed her so much but knew she was in good hands. It was so nice to be able to hang out with just our older kids, play games and relax for a change.

Now, it rained a solid 90% of the 5 days we spent on the coast. But it was still so beautiful and it didn't stop us from having a great time or the kids from swimming in the F*R*E*E*Z*I*N*G cold ocean.

I never post quite so many family photos on this blog. I usually save those for our family blog, but we don't go on vacation very often so I thought I'd share with everyone. Get ready for image overload...

This was the beach right outside the condo we stayed in.

Lily loves to dance, and lucky for us she loves an audience too. She and Faith entertained us for quite a while. I really need to get Lil in dance classes so she can learn to put all of those dance moves of hers in some kind of order.

The house that 'Goonies' was filmed at in Astoria. Goonies was a family fave growing up so it was pretty exciting for me and Danielle to see it up close and personal. Pretty dorky, I know.

We could hear sea lions barking like crazy, so we drove down to the boat dock to check them out. There were TONS of them everywhere.

Mason & Chase were feeling pretty brave so they headed down the ramp to get a close up look at them.

The Maritime museum in Astoria.

A swimsuit shower after their nightly swim in the pool.

We woke up to a sunny sky on Saturday. So we took advantage and headed straight to the beach. Yes, it was still freezing, but it didn't seem to matter much to the kids. I only got in up to my thighs and it seemed like it took hours for all the feeling to come back to my feet and legs. I don't know how they could stand to get all the way in the water. Craziness.

Later in the day it stared raining AGAIN and I watched as Bo gazed longingly at the beach. He had so much fun. I wish we lived closer to a coast.

Cannon beach. It was a really really pretty beach.

Lily agreed to let me take some pictures of her. I was so excited to get a few really cute shots of her on the beach. By the time we got out there is was raining again. I took 2 pictures of her and this one is the better of the 2. Oh well.

Thanks guys for the fun trip! We can't wait for the next vacation. We're thinking somewhere tropical sounds wonderful for next time. And thank you Kirk for taking a few pictures of me. It hardly ever happens ya know!

Ethan & Tyler

So, how cute are these little guys?! I instantly fell in love with these two the second I saw them. They were so fun to pose and even funner to cuddle. They were born 7 weeks early, but 3 weeks after their birth they're doing so great and weighing over 5 pounds each. I'm so glad they came to see me. I LOVE twins!

Oh, and for those of you scrolling through all these pictures thinking how peaceful and serene these babies look......

this is what a good amount of our time spent together looked like. I think this may just be one of favorites of these two.

She's perfect. She's never lied. She's never hurt another person. She's never sinned in any way. She's perfectly pure. She's brought nothing but happiness to us in the last 15 months. And as I sat and stared at my Stella today, an overwhelming feeling of joy came over me. I love her more then I could ever express in words and I feel so blessed that she's mine.
