the sweetest little package

They say that the best things come in small packages. Usually I don't agree with that, but in this case I had to.

Meet Eli...the newest member of the Peterson family and my newest nephew.

He decided to join us a little earlier than expected so that meant I had to wait patiently (or try to) for some bonding time...aka, his first photo shoot.

 It was well worth the wait and I must say I think he enjoyed it!!

Congrats Ryan, Lizeth and Leilani on your newest addition. He is precious!


See, I told you he liked it!!!! Just look at that smile.

Some special time with his big sister.

Miss Danica...6 days new

I had the pleasure of getting to spend some time with this little cutie-pie this weekend.

Meet Danica, just 6 days old and as sweet as can be. Really she was!! 

I had been looking forward to her arrival for a while now. Mom was very excited and that always gets me fired up. As a bonus I got to chat with her mom and Grandma a bit...such sweet ladies in this family.

I had such a good time at this session.


And this next one is for dad!

her other half

I was so excited when Gina told me that her hubby had the day off and was willing to join us for our session. In reality I think he tried to back out at least once, but she wasn't having it.

I'm so glad that you joined us Richard!!

Thanks again for the fun time you guys.

Isn't it?

Happy Wednesday my friends!!!

loving this moment in time

I cringe when I hear people say they would love to relive their high school days. Sure, it had it's moments, and great friendships were made there, but for the most part I could do without. 

My 20's were pretty great I have to admit.

But there is just something about this time I am in right now that is the best by far. I have to admit that I do have a problem with the thought of getting old right now, but I think that is just the mom in me and wanting to be with my kiddos forever. I feel that at this time I have really gotten a feel for who I am as a person and have come into my style.

So I have been slowly changing up my home to make it more "me" and not what I think the norm should be. ;) And same with my photography. So, I had some ideas that I wanted to play with and all I needed was a willing model (or two).

I had so much fun with this session that I decided to break it into two posts because I just had too many favorites to fit into one.

Thank you Gina (and Richard) for your trust and willingness! You guys rocked it!!


LOVE this next much!

Gina you are fierce!!!

Up next...her man joins the fun. And it's good...real good! ;)

this girl of mine

Yesterday I had some errands  that I needed to get done around town and as usual my little sidekick was right beside me. She is always up for whatever the day has to offer her and does it with a smile (most all the time). She really is the sweetest little gal and funny as can be also. Yesterday it dawned on me again just how funny my little princess is.

I remembered that I had some images that I snapped of her a little while back that I never posted and capture her personality so well.

These are the images as a parent that I treasure!

Happy weekend!!
