My girl Anni will be having a party… a SPRING Birthday Party that is.

…Home Run!

Wow! This bedroom took me some time but I can finally say that I am done! Anyways,  I am not sure what took me so long…  perhaps the little things… perhaps that it is a “theme” room which I don’t typically do… or perhaps that my son’s bedroom was a disaster. …With that said let me introduce to you the inspiration behind it: The Taekwondo Hero and his mess… This is how the bedroom used to look before. Question for you:  How many pieces of dirty underwear do you think my boy could keep under his bed? …The answer is 6. You heard me right…...

BeYOUtiful Erika!

An amazing Photographer and an EXTRAordinary mom…       I had the blessing of meeting Erika years ago while we were both living in charming Washington, Utah. The first thing that struck me about her was her smile and the deep love and appreciation  that she had for her family.     Just a few days ago while thinking about the beauty of motherhood the memory of that love and the image of a simple smile came back into my mind… reminding me of how powerful the small moments that we share with our children are. Among the many things that I love about Erika  is the fact that her little boys have been a great inspiration for her to do and become what she is… I adore her!   So…, I introduce to you Erika Snow.       so who am i? i am. a jeans and flip flops kind of girl laid back and relaxed a mom times three i love. long, lazy saturdays how the world smells when warmed by the sun  football good books, better music,  best friends melted cheese i can’t live without. diet dr. pepper my iphone my son’s proclamation that i am his best friend the sound of giggles floating down the stairs  mascara     why did i become a photographer? simple . . . my kids.  I wanted to capture each precious moment...
