Yearly Archives: 2008

For those of you who have not read my Christmas family letter/blog I wanted to repost the Fall shots I took of the boys, before the end of the year! I took these right across the street from our home in an old lot. I just love the fall:)

At the end of October during our family vacation my very good friend Theresa came to visit for a few days all the way from Utah. No one had ever come that far just to see me so I was ecstatic, not to mention I have totally missed her! Theresa and I have known each other since teenagers through family get togethers, but never really knew each other existed until under unusual circumstances a few years ago we connected. Now she is like a sister to me and the dearest friend a girl could have! During her visit I knew if we were to go anywhere I had to take her to my Charleston, which I believe is the most beautiful and romantic city in the US, actually I got engaged there:) But seriously if you ever visit SC and only have short time go to Charleston! Here some fun shots we got while there!

At the end of October we went on our family Vacation to Myrtle Beach. I really love going places off season I hate the crowds and am always in the mood to save money plus the beach is way better I think in the fall! We went for a whole week, and it was wonderful. I didn’t take out my fancy camera too many times cause I was to busy being lazy, but one day we ventured off to Huntington Beach State Park, it was 5 bucks to get in and I was hoping it would be worth it. It was an amazing beach, not as nice as the Bahamas of course, but very nice for the East Coast. The sand was super white and the ocean and sky were ever so blue, and the best part about it was because it was a park it was all un -touched w/ no hotels or houses anywhere. There was no one there at all that day which proved to be a good thing because at one point we looked at Gabe our oldest who decided the ocean was a good place to pee into! Here ya go:)

Here’s a few shots from October’s annual pumpkin patch picking:) The boys were way excited this year to ride the tractor into the field and cut their own pumpkins from the vine!

As you can all see I am taking advantage of this holiday season and sneaking away to be on the computer to work on my much needed blog, and my forever large stack of photos to be edited. It might also be to the fact that one of my teen girls Amy I taught in UT is leaving me texts and messages on facebook & myspace about how excited she is and anxious to see her shots from my AZ trip where she just recently relocated. Speaking of Amy she is quite the amazing young photographer herself with only being 16 she can do some awesome things w/ a little old point & shoot. So if you are an Arizona based photographer and would be interested in having a little sidekick/assistant for the day or just for a shoot, please let me know:) Here’s a few shots of Nick I was experimenting with some different lighting areas in my house.


Here’s my Gabe who decided to do body art on his face before it was his turn to take pictures 🙂
