what's in the box, you ask?

this cutie, Kailee, turned 365 days old yesterday!
That 'one' birthday when your age will no longer be measured in days, weeks, or even months. You are one whole year old!
Happy 1st Birthday, Kailee!
One year down,
and many, many, many more to go!
i LOVE meeting new clients!
especially when they bring bright blue eyed babies come on that tutu says it all, so darling!

happy one month, lovers!

The Temple is so incredibly photogenic. 

think about it:
-it does not have a bad side
-you could never catch it in bad lighting
-no such thing as a bad angle
-the landscape is always pristine
-it draws the eyes in every photograph

It is just simply beautiful.

I was fortunate enough to be asked to 
capture morgan & jake's day. 
now this is not my first rodeo
but i believe that the best things in life aren't things:
they are friends.
&& i hold these two close to my heart
and that made this day x1000 times more important.
What is more important than your wedding day?
oh yah,
It was such a fun experience,
watching two huge families become one.
There was so much love there!

Baby Easton is so incredibly lucky!
Jake and his family are so warm-hearted,
and Easton just gained about 100 more family members to adore him

It was really hard, as usual, to narrow down my favorites
such a beautiful couple, in such a beautiful place
so many happy people!

the mr&mrs shots are my favorite
the family pictures are my favorite
the first dance is my favorite
the send off is my favorite 
weddings are just so favorite'y!
Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Gifford
For all time and eternity
