Benny’s Baptism Announcement

I love putting together cute baptism invites.  I’ve been able to watch Benny grow for the past five years.  He’s got the best smile, and I wanted something that really captured him.  Love the way the red and blue from his tie was able to work with the rest of the card.
 Is it dorky that I always come close to crying when I do these baptism announcements?
Cause I do.

Megan’s Senior Photos Part 1

My little Megan is all grown up!  I couldn’t be happier with how her shoot turned out.  She is amazing at track, so of course we had to capture some of her doing what she does best.. and most gorgeously!
Seriously.. that hair, right?
Love this girl!  I’ve loved watching her grow up..
and can’t wait to post the other half of this girl!

a Little bit hipster Senior Photo Shoot

She’s growing up!  And she’s pretty cute, too..
My little sister is graduating this year, and we had to hustle and get her senior pictures done.  She and I are really different, although we both share the same warped sense of humor.  It’s really warped.
But she’s a little more granola.. hipster.. outdoorsy.. tomboyish maybe?
And I’m not, so we never really see eye to eye on our style, but I thought this shoot turned out cute.
Her only demand for her shoot was that it be outdoorsy.. so here ya have it!
Wanna hear something even crazier?  If she follows in my footsteps, she’ll be engaged in a little over a  year, married in two years and have a baby in three years.
No wonder my parents were freaking out.

Sista Missionary

When you’ve been in Young Women’s as long as I have, it’s hard not to have some of your girls leave ya for things like missions.. marriage..college- all those great things. Kelsie is so crazy talented and fun, not to mention she’s going to make a great missionary.  We braved the freezing cold to grab a few snaps, and since she’s so photogenic, it didn’t take long at all to get some beautiful shots.

My personal favorite:

Love you Kels!  Here’s to a bright future!

 

Always Naughty

 Nothing sums up my kiddos better than that!  This is my card from last year, and I thought I would share.  Our family couldn’t get over the fact that Bauer is actually tied to the chair.  We noticed neighbors looking out their window wondering what was going on.. No big deal, just the next door neighbors tying their three year old to a chair.
 
It was an easy thing to put together, only took an hour for the pictures and a simple photoshop card.  I’m sure there are all kinds of naughty picture ideas you could come up with!  I thought about making it an every year thing, but baby Taytum is too sweet to be included in the naughty card just yet.  Next year.

Bentley’s Baptism Invite

I really can’t believe my little Bentley Ray is eight years old! But she definitely had her own ideas of how she wanted her invite to look, and the pictures she wanted us to take, and this is what we came up with.
 
 

This is the outer shell of the card, I put a verse from one of my favorite songs on the outside..

 And this is the inside of the card.. It was a great day!  Lots of tears over my little girl growing up!

Bauer’s 4.5 year old studly shoot

Meet my Bauer Boy.. He is as sweet as he is intense.  I wanted to grab a few pics of him to blow up for his wall in his room, so I wanted the shoot to feel as much like him as it could.  Within ten minutes, I had more expressions than I knew what to do with.  And he even threw in some of his own poses, which were amazing.  Why do boys always bust out the chin resting on the fist Napoleon Dynamite style? 
Enjoy my little stud muffin!
