I had my heart set this last weekend on doing updated pictures of the kids. And then Canada burst into flames and we have settled into orange/red air quality alerts. Not ideal for outdoor picture taking. Or anything outdoors - poor Banks has been missing his nightly walks this last week. Maybe we'll just give in and get some masks. Anyway......I attempted some updated pictures of the kids, but the air was just gross, and thick with smoke. A lot of my images have a lot of noise, which drives me crazy. So for the time being, we will use these pictures, but I warned the kids that they were in for another session as soon as the air clears. They were super thrilled to hear that! ;)

K & A {adoption}

I did a shoot with Kari and Aaron a couple years ago. They were in the process of making their adoption book, and wanted some fun photos to capture their personalities for prospective birth moms. This year, they were finally matched with a mom who is due in a few weeks so we went out to get a few shots for the memory books.

Meet Banks! We rescued Banks from a local shelter Friday evening. He's almost three and a boxer mix. We are still trying to determine what the "mix" portion is. He is such a lover....our gentle giant for sure! Not an aggressive bone in his body. We are working to put some meat on his bones as he had shelter/kennel stress. He got his first adventure up to the mountains this weekend, and I think he really liked it!

Mariah & Deran {engagement}

I met up with this super cute, shy, and awkward couple a week ago for their engagement pictures. I swear, they look all of 10 years old! But adorable nonetheless. I am shooting their wedding later this fall and can't wait to see what their big day brings.
