Mr. Blue Eyes…

…came and paid me a visit not long ago.

Okay….actually his name is Marshall. I like the name, like this baby even better! ๐Ÿ™‚

Marshall gave up some big smiles and coos, and then he fell asleep.

Once asleep, he was out like a light….so sweet.

There is nothing like a sleeping baby… peaceful.

What beautiful pictures! Thanks for posting these. I am Marshall's aunt from Montana so this was such a treat to see!

Jill and Chad….engaged!

Recently I had the chance to get together with Jill and Chad for some engagement portraits. The forecast was for rain, but thankfully it was dry!

Jill and Chad’s wedding will feature the color black and so we wanted to use the black and white damask backdrop for a few shots. I just LOVE the dress that Jill has on here!

Chad is an outdoorsy guy who loves fishing. We went to a local pond to get these next outdoorsy shots. Engagement shoots are a great time to capture images in a more remote location that you would not have time to access on your wedding day.

On the way back to my place we stopped here for a bit of a different look.

We shot in our pasture area….I love the yellow /flowers weeds that are blooming right now!

I will leave you with this image…isn’t the ring gorgeous? I love the smell of these blooms too. These bushes are already bloomed out now…I can’t believe how fast summer is going already!

Jill and Chad…I am sure this summer will fly for you as you prepare for the wedding in September! I can’t wait! ๐Ÿ™‚

Today I get to show off…

…the first in a series of one year olds that I have photographed in the last couple weeks. Meet Lily!

Such a pretty smile!

Lily is sooo independent! she has been walking for a few weeks and is so proud of herself…it is the cutest thing! Here she is taking a little rest…

Loving her mischievous little face here!

I think Lily is going to be a track star…I really do! She was such a little mover….going, going at lightning speed all the time, never stopping!

Thanks for coming over to play, Miss Lily!

I totally LOVE that second shot. If she were mine, I’d get that really really big for my wall. She just looks so happy!
