Yes, it’s true! I’m actually updating my blog! I’m kind of sure there’s no one left that reads it since it’s been SO long since updating, but oh well! So where have I been for the last few months? Ummmm….pretty much just being a mom, wife, photographer, teacher, and a million other roles that have been keeping me super busy. Oh yeah, and I had a baby in July. FOUR boys. I still wake up some mornings and have to remind myself that yes, it is in fact true that my life will be forever changed with four boys. Boys are dirty, messy, unorganized and rough. But you know what? I love it. Sure, I’d enjoy a tea party here and there, but that’s what nieces are for, right?

I obviously have a million pictures and stories I could update this blog with, but I’ll start out slow and for now just show you a couple of pictures of my newest little bundle of joy, who is now TWO months old already! I hate hate hate how fast time goes by when you have kids. And oh my…this boy is adorable!

So cute! Congratulations!

I have four boys…9,7,4 & 2. Life is definitely crazy, loud, busy, messy & sticky in my house. I still can’t believe I have four boys. I grew up the oldest of four girls. What happened???

Glad to see your update. Happy fall!!!

Another Adorable Newborn

March 19, 2013

I’m loving all these newborns I’ve been photographing lately…and I have a few more scheduled in the next few weeks! Little Dallas made me seriously so excited about having another little newborn boy of my own in just a few short months. And have you ever seen a more expressive, smiley baby? LOVE!

Newborn Love

March 14, 2013

I so love photography, and it’s usually the littlest things (like sweet baby Calvin) that truly turns it into a passion for me.

The poor blog has been neglected for so long! But I do actually have a pretty good excuse this time. :)

Congratulations!!!! :) I have four boys. It is always busy and loud at my house, but so much fun! Yay!!!!!

Leanne posted the following on February 16, 2013 at 9:21 pm.

Hi, I read your blog for years now, but rarely have time to comment. I just want to say a huge congratulations! That’s very exciting news!

Alesa posted the following on February 24, 2013 at 9:00 pm.

Congratulations! Hope you are feeling well! What a blessing.

Janet Kemper posted the following on March 21, 2013 at 2:28 pm.

Congratulations! What great news!

Congratulations! I always wished for 4 boys…I got 2 that are 4 years apart…but the 4 male dogs…1 male bunny…and several male turtles…lots of testosterone around our house!

This month at I Heart Faces is the 2012 Best Face Photo Challenge. Oh wow, I had such a hard time deciding on this one. Just ONE favorite face of 2012? I think I spent WAY too much time looking through all the thousands of photos I have from the last year. But I finally settled on this one. It will forever be one of my favorites.

My little Kyler was asking me how to be a photographer so I said, “Well, you first try framing your photo with your fingers to see how it will look.” So after helping him position his fingers just right, this is the photo I ended up with. My little brown-eyed boy. Hopefully he really will follow in my photography footsteps.


I was seriously blown away by all the other entries for this photo challenge. Check them all out HERE!

Love this. I love it when the focus is so strong on the eyes and everything else just kinda falls away.

A Week of Firsts for Ry

January 6, 2013

Ryan had quite the eventful week this last week, which seemed appropriate that it all happened at the beginning of a fresh new year. Last week he lost his first tooth! He’s been waiting a long time for this momentous occasion, since most of his friends have lost their baby teeth long before now.


After examining it he said, “Mom, it looks like a tiny little piece of string cheese!”

Last week Ryan also started piano lessons for the very first time. He is SO excited and I actually have to ask him to STOP practicing! I know that enthusiasm won’t last forever, but I’ll take full advantage of it right now, and figure out down the road how to keep encouraging his passion for it.


Love my cute boy!

I’m excited to be linking up this week over at Simple As That’s Simple Things Sunday Photo link party! I’m always blown away by the photos that everyone posts there. There is seriously some amazing photo talent all over the world!


Rebecca Cooper posted the following on January 6, 2013 at 7:49 pm.

Love these photos Elisha! He is getting SO big! :)

Kim Loewen posted the following on January 6, 2013 at 8:12 pm.

It’s so exciting when they lose their first tooth! Love his comment :)

Deirdre posted the following on January 6, 2013 at 9:13 pm.

Love how you capture both a close-up of his mouth and of the tooth. Great boken in that second shot!


December 27, 2012

Well, I’m pretty sure no one reads this blog anymore since it’s been about…oh…3 months since I’ve last posted anything. Whoops. I had the busiest fall season ever with photos this year, which was AWESOME but very overwhelming! My time was spent every single day either taking pictures or editing pictures. I thought it would slow down a bit for December but it didn’t. I stayed very busy! I’m hoping that now that Christmas is over I can breathe a little again and finally post a few updates to this little blog of mine (if anyone is still out there to read it!)

Oh…and I’ve also been working on a NEW class for Big Picture Classes! I can’t even tell you how excited I am for this class. Details coming soon!

But for now, I wanted to start sharing a few photos from the last few weeks, starting with a couple of this tiny little miracle. He arrived just a few days before Christmas and is simply the sweetest thing ever. He was so easy to photograph. A newborn photographer’s dream! Congratulations Josh and Shanae!
