Hangin' out at Mom and Dad's

These are just some cute pictures that, I think Kimberly took, at my parents one day.

I love how both the kids are looking at Kora:). They are like, "Hey Auntie, what are you doing?!?"

Sweet Little Muffin!!! She's just being cute like normal.

Josh 2011

Josh is a senior at Elma High School. I headed down to his house in Elma with my Mom a couple weeks ago. It was a super easy shoot. Josh was so great to work with. We were able to discuss some of his post high school plans while I was taking his pictures. One of his intrests was to go to UW and maybe major in history!!! Of course I loved this and had to tell him how great it was:). Here are some of my favorites from the shoot.

Josh, good luck next year with whatever you choose to do. :)

My New Closet

I know I have mentioned many times before that Richie and I live in a VERY small house! It is a two bedroom, one bath, tiny little place. Ever since we moved in I have been using our spare room as my closet, which I quickly outgrew:). Rich and I have been discussing turning half of the garage into a new closet for me so that we could actually use our spare room for something more functional. Over the last week or so, Richie has been EXTREMELY busy getting my new closet all ready. He is such a great husband and makes me so does my new closet!!!!

He started by painting and getting rid of anything out there that was not needed in order to make room for all of my stuff. We had a bit of extra carpet that was left over after the carpet inside was installed, so he installed that, which ended up fitting perfect!! He hung some shelves, got some hanging racks, and moved my dresser out there. It turned out sooooooo good!!!

Here is a picture of my dresser. He even took the time to hang my necklaces:) Some of the shelves and hanging space.....
More hanging space provided by portable hanging racks.....
Some of the shoe space below the clothes...
Area for more of the shoes ( I like how you can see Baxter in the mirror:) )....

I love my new closet!!! It is so nice that I can actually see all of my clothes. I feel like they can breath for the first time. Everything turned out so great.
Richie, your the best!!!! Love you Babe!!!

Michaela 2011

Michaela was my student as a Sophomore and is also a very good friend of my younger brother, Joe, so I was very thrilled and honored when she asked me to do her senior pictures. It was a REALLY hot day when we did the shoot, but she was a trooper and never let the heat get to her. We met up at Tumwater Falls Park, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to take pictures. We walked all over the park and got so many great pictures that it was hard to choose which ones were my favorite. Here a just a few of them:)...Enjoy...

Jacob 2011

A couple weeks ago I headed up to Mt. Rainier to do a Senior photo shoot for my cousin Brian's oldest son, Jacob. It was a very HOT day, so walking around the mountain proved to be a sweaty task. Jacob was great to work with and willing to go off the trail, even when we were taking pictures right next to the sign that said "Please stay on trail." It was a fun day...a little rushed, as I had to get back to Olympia to do some work. I would have loved to look around more, since I haven't been up there since I was a freshman in high school!!

It was great to see Jacob, as it has been many years!!! He has definitely grown up:).
