Chase's Senior Pictures

This is Chase, one of the kids that Eric coaches and that we work with at the high school here. He's a great kid and we had a lot of fun doing this shoot with his step mom, Deb (isn't she beautiful??). He was so serious though! I had to get pretty creative with what I said to get his 'real smile', but isn't he handsome when he has one (which I take back everything I said and swear them both to secrecy)?! I know that Chase has a lot in store for him, he's too fun to let life pass him by! Thanks Chase, you made me remember how much fun spontaneity can be! Oh and keep on watching on this site-Chase has agreed to do a kind of crazy shoot with me that involves fire and sports :0).

Hoskins Christmas Picts

I did a quick Christmas shoot for my sisters family this last weekend when they were down for Thanksgiving holiday. It is always fun to look at how the kids are growing, but man do they have some big personalities! It seemed like every time Payden was happy Paige wasn't and vice versa. She also wanted some pictures like the last ones I did, but the baby wouldn't fall asleep and she keep eating the feather boa and the sparkly ornaments. We got some cute ones after I cleaned her mouth out (full of feathers and sparkles-she kept sparkles on her head for the rest of the trip). Enjoy my cute little nieces and nephew-we sure did when they were visiting!

Tutu Princess

This little one is Ali, and we had such a fun time at this photo shoot! I work with her mommy at the school I work at, and she brought lots of ideas for us to try! I have never done a Christmas shoot so it was interesting to try to set up some new ideas. Poor Ali got tired of our ideas I think though, especially when it came to the tutu's-clearly she was not loving those :0). Anyways-enjoy and contact me if you want to do a Christmas shoot!

Neal's Sr. Pictures

This is Neal, and wow he was patient with this shoot! We became friends with his family right when we moved to Pinedale (Eric is one of his coaches), and so on this shoot I had help from his mom and sister-which with direction from all 3 of us he was extremely patient (can you imagine 3 women-hahaha, they were a big help to me though). Even Grandpa threw out some crazy ideas. It was actually a pretty cold day, but he was willing to try out any suggestion-and in doing so we got around a 100 usable pictures for his senior shots. I did some color altered shots, but I loved the colors so much I decided to only post those. It was a very entertaining day-so thank you Neal for being such a great sport!!! Good luck on your senior year!!

My family pictures

These are the most recent pictures for my side of the family! Once again I was running back and forth from the camera to pose, I swear I will have a remote the next time we do them-it's way too hard on me and the kids (very little camera focus-they just watch me go back and forth like a crazy lady) plus it will give me more time which = more pictures. This is the first time I have shot little Adelina (my brother's), I can't wait to do more pictures when she can walk-I already have some great idea's! Enjoy!

Hoskins Family (new addition)

This is the Hoskins family pictures for 2008-with their new little addition Mara Jade ( 5 days new). Other members of the family include Shayne, Amber, Paige (almost 6), and Payden (almost 4). These were taken at the Idaho State Campus finishing up a 5 day photo shoot. It was fun but I think, I take that back, I know we were all exhausted and done with pictures after this shoot! It's amazing to see this little family continue to grow and I can't wait to watch little Mara grow up as I have her siblings. Congrats to the Hoskins and good luck managing 3 (busy) kids.

PS: I love my little dude's faux hawk, the cruel baby on the grass pictures were not my idea :0( and the sucking of nose was not staged-gotta love goofy Shayne
