I'm downloading images from this weekends wedding in Santa Fe, NM of the beautiful Tara taken at La Posada Resort and SpaI mean LOOK AT HER!! Great story about her dress too. This was her grandma's dress, and then her mom wore it for her wedding. Now Tara is wearing it, with a few alterations and style tweeking.
We have all been waiting patiently for baby Jack to arrive. His mom, Logan a past bride, called MONTHS in advance to schedule his newborn session. She is a planner. I like that. Alot. I photographed Jeff and Logan's wedding two years ago and I told them how I love being apart of peoples lives as a photographer, because you get to see them live life. Now after two years of marriage, they have a baby. These are sweet, precious moments I am SO happy my camera was able to collect for them. Baby Jack was just a sweetheart and I LOVED holding him. He made me realize my baby (2 yrs old) is not really a baby anymore. When I came home after their session and looked at Benson, I was kind of taken back at how BIG he is, but he will always be MY baby :)
Oh, funny story too. You know you are a real awesome mom when you catch your babies poop as he is hanging in a knitted basket. Yup, thats what Logan did. And Jeff was a little grossed out. And I was laughing :)
And, Logan and Jeff made me feel so welcomed and loved when I came into their house to find lots and lots of wedding photos I did for them. I never get to see the photographs displayed in my clients homes and that was very special to me. Thanks for a very lovely evening Scarbrough family.
Tuesday I had a session with a sweet 3 yr old boy. He was full of energy, had the cutest smile, and gave me hugs. I instantly fell in love with him, because he reminded me so much of my little Benson.I got three HUGE mosquito bites during this session too. If you live in this area, I am warning you the mosquitoes want to eat you alive so spray yourself with OFF. And I mean spray your entire body, because those little dudes got me in places I never thought they would :)
We almost didn't get to do pictures for the Laughery family. Michael (dad) is in the Air Force and he and his family are based here in Clovis. He got orders that he was shipping out sooner than later and we canceled the session. Well, then they told him he wasn't going until later. So, lets just say Charlotte and her family have some sweet poeple looking after them, because the next day their session was paid for by random friends and I ended up doing their session for them like we had originally planned.Michael is now in Afghanistan and his family is in Clovis. Please pray for their family as they are apart for these 6 months. The thing I love about the internet is Michael can still see the pictures from their session and so can Charlotte. So they will in some way, still be connected even though they are apart. Hugs to the Laughery family.
Janemarie and Sybrand are engaged!!
Now that is one cute Chiropractor if you ask me. Thanks Darcy for a very fun evening. You are absolutely a joy, and I SO enjoyed photographing your beautiful face and sweet spirit.
This morning I got to play with these two sweet girls.
As I promised Stephanie...Tonight I saw Stephanie at Zumba and we most definitely worked it, even though I messed up a bunch on my steps. It was still lots of fun having her dance along beside me. The Clovis News Journal was even there...taking pictures. Seriously! The photographer like snuck into the room and started snapping away. I just want to say, that if you are taking pictures of a bunch of ladies all in athletic clothing doing Zumba moves, please don't take it from below. We don't want to see that of ourselves in the morning paper. My tip: take the images from above of dancing ladies. I'm curious to see who the photog will put in the paper. I was wearing my Cristy Cross Photography shirt (I was my own walking advertisement), but I don't think the camera was aimed at me. Thank goodness :) Any who...here are the favorites from Stephanie and her families session. By the way, they have such a neat relationship between the three of them. I loved watching them as a family.
I have so many images from my Alice in Wonderland shoot I did two weeks ago. The best way for me to get these image rolling for you to see is to do them in parts.Let me first start off by saying everyone who helped rocked my socks off. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Check out part one here.

8 days old, little baby girl was a sweetheart.
Saturday I hung out with the McWilliams family. This is a super sweet family I met at Byron and Lindsay's wedding back in August. Lauren (below) is Byron's sister. It was nice seeing Lindsay and Sassy too!
Let me just say if I looked like this when I was a senior, or even now, then I would be living on cloud 9. I would first have to get a tan though :) This beautiful girl is drop dead gorgeous. And ya know what she told me? She said she wasn't very photogenic! Say what!! I am gonna strongly disagree with that one.
I'm headed to Lubbock for a family session with the McWilliams, and then a wedding! Here is what I've been doing this week.
I had a family session for the Blumers. I love this family!
Then a session with the beautiful Georgina...
And yesterday a session with beautiful Jenna...
My sweet friend was inspired by several Kate Spade adds for her family photo shoot. I am working on their full post and it will be up next week.Have a wonderful weekend with your family my friends.
I couldn't stop saying "she is such a cute baby" at baby Megyn's session today. Her mom dressed her in the cutest outfits with leggings. I want a baby girl JUST so I can put leggings on her!Here is a little teaser...
