{Wedding} Mr. & Mrs. Shill

   Posted by: Administrator    in Sessions

After about 3 weeks of rain, it turned out to be a gorgeous day for a wedding! Here are a few of my early favorites of the happy couple. I’m sure I will have more once I get them all edited.

When I was quickly going through and picking out my favorites, I didn’t realize they are all of them kissing! I guess you can tell what my favorite newlywed pose is! :)

Baby T-Rex

Tegan was given this adorable nickname by his sisters several months ago and has stuck. :) I had the opportunity to play with the sweet little guy when he was just 6 days old!

Baseball

Check out these two cuties! Mom didn’t want the boring baseball pictures that they do for the teams so she came to me for something a little different.

Air Show

   Posted by: Administrator    in Family

We had the opportunity to go to the practice run of the Hill Air Force Base Air Show earlier this month. It was great and there were a tiny fraction of the people as there were during the actual show. (I know because I went back the next day.) We got to see all kinds of cool stuff…

I just wanted the perfect picture

   Posted by: Administrator    in Family

People seem to think that I have 3 willing models any time I want to practice or play around. Wrong! It is so much easier to photograph other people’s children. When I drag my children into the studio, I am happy to get just one or two that I love.

I get a whole lot more of this…

Swimming Lessons

   Posted by: Administrator    in Family

I grew up in the water. I grew up in Texas and my Grandparents (who we just about lived with because they lived so close to us) had a swimming pool. I don’t remember a time that I didn’t know how to swim. We never took lessons, but when you are in the water that much you just figure it out.

My kids… not so much. We decided to put them in swim lessons. Yeah, that was a total waste of money. The instructor would ask the kids if they want to, for example, blow bubbles under water. We would see all the other children’s heads disappear as they attempt what she asked and ours nodding their head back and forth in a definite “no.” I told her a few lessons into it that I am not at all opposed to her telling them that they don’t have a choice and they will do whatever she wants but she told me they are taught to leave it up to the children to do it at their own pace. I knew then and there that it was money that would have been spent better otherwise. I have just resigned myself to the realization that my children will never be little fish unless we move to Texas or Florida or somewhere they can live their summers in a swimming pool.

I think Chase’s face says it all:

Really, though, it wasn’t all bad. Once the boys found out that the instructor was not going to make them do anything they didn’t want to (i.e. getting their ears in the water) they didn’t mind it so much.

James looks thrilled, right? :)

I did get James to put his face under the water… once… If I remember right, I had to bribe him with something.

Annika actually enjoyed the lessons. Her only issue was when the instructor wanted her to go under water without holding her nose. She told me over and over that she can’t do that and every time I would tell her that is why she is taking lessons — to learn. But alas, the instructor caved and allowed Annika to hold her nose. Another $30 down the drain.

The Many Faces of James

   Posted by: Administrator    in Family

One day James came to me with a special request. He wanted me to do some pictures of him. Imagine my surprise… and excitement! We had fun for a while, just the two of us, with James taking control of where the session was heading…

And then I found out that the only reason he wanted me to do pictures of him was so that we could do this:

Oh, well, I’ll take what I can get. :)

A few months ago (yes, it has taken me that long to get around to doing anything with these pictures!) we visited family in Las Vegas and my sister-in-law and I had some fun with our cameras and the kids. Well, I had fun with her kids because mine weren’t so up for cooperating with me that day! So, Chelsea, sorry it took so long to let you see these pictures…
