Ridley Wedding~Anchorage, AK

My whole life I have dreamt of going to Alaska... I never imagined, however, that my first trip there would be to photograph my dear cousin Rebekah's beautiful wedding day! The day was a busy one, starting off at 6am due to the early wedding time (12:13PM on 9/10/11)! =) This wedding was extra special to me, watching my precious cousin (more like a sister) surrounded by our family, getting her makeup and hair done by my sisters, stepping into her wedding gown, walking down the isle to meet the love of her life....what an honor to be asked to capture it all! We didn't have much time for pictures after the wedding, but I did my best to take some on-the-go as we headed to the zoo for their reception, hehe, what a fun wedding idea!

Overall the day was wonderful, although bittersweet because my aunt Heidi was not their to witness her daughter's wedding with us and add her special artistic touch. She was very missed.. but Rebekah did a beautiful job following in her mother's footsteps with creative decor and beautiful details! She would have been proud Bekah, just like I am when I look at you ~~ I love you so much and wish you and Nick the very best!!

Green Boys~Bozeman, MT

 It was a cold, yet breathtaking fall day that I met up with my sweet cousins for a school picture shoot! The trees were in their full array of colorful beauty... the leaves were falling to the ground all around us in the crisp breeze... we were so fortunate to be in a spot full of fall splendor! It has been my pleasure to capture the unique personalities of these fun boys for the past few years, and I wanted to get their school pictures taken before we lost all the perfect fall colors. It was just the 3 youngest boys this time and they had me laughing as usual with their funny faces, shy smiles, and contagious personalities! We had a great time!

I took this little guy back out a few days later for more pictures when the leaves had gone and the snow had arrived. He gets pretty silly in front of the camera, but as you will see we found him a fun friend to share the attention with! =)
