Some More of Kate

Here are just a few cute shots of Kate. I'm helping Cara with some photos for a new business her and her sisters are starting. Kate and her husband Tom came along so I snapped a few of them. I can't wait to post the photos of the product they'll be selling. Oh Jimmy Christmas!!! So Cute!! They'll have their website up in a week or so, and the minute they do I'm going to post lots of photos and give everyone the site. Stay tuned. In the meantime enjoy this little teaser.

The Jolley Fam

Jen is one of my very best friends. We were roommates years ago, long before Kennion and their 2 sweet little girls. Some of my favorite memories with Jen are the practical joke wars with our home teacher Dallen. One night at like 3am we decided to snow him in. We took all the snow in his front yard and piled it up against his front door. His brother totally caught us and yelled at us as we ran for the get away car. A few days later we got a message on our big front window that read "watch u back" written in sticky marshmellows. These jokes went on for a good 6 months (until he totally smooched Jen!! hee hee hee). What funny memories:)

2 year old Kate

Remember this little cutie? I took photos of her and her family December 2007
Here she is again and she just turned 2!! Oh my, and her tiny puppy is almost as cute as she is. Little Kate is just as much of a pet lover as I am. Cara was telling me that they recently went on vacation and left the puppy at home. Kate cried for her every morning for her little buddy. That is so cute!!

Meet me in St. Louis

I had a killer weekend in St. Louis. I met a friend there and we toured around, took pictures, ate way tasty food, visited the farmers market, saw a play, enjoyed 2 museums and walked and walked!! As promised here are the photos of the arch. Did you know the arch is the tallest man-made monument in the United States.

We visited the farmers market on Saturday morning. It put the SL farmers market to shame. If you can imagine, this place is filled with a very wide variety of smells. We decided to try boiled peanuts. Not really something I'd recommend. This was such a fun day!!

I've never seen so many peppers!!

The Sorenson Kids

I had such a great time this morning shooting Tyler & Kimberly's kids. Kimberly is the sister of Donald, who I dated years ago. Kimberly was one of Donald's best assets. I would definetely advise him to introduce all his girlfriends to her!! I put a little extra thought into having similar shots for both Kenedy & Jack. So that they could create wall hangings like the one you see above. Here are 2 more sets. Thanks again Kimberly. So fun to get caught up!!
