Bridal Portraits: Christina

A girl only gets to wear her wedding dress once, right? Not this one.. she got to wear it TWICE. :)
 Once on her special day... and the other for her Bridal Portraits.  

Bridal Portraits are important because the bride can get a "feel" for her dress and a test run on hair and make-up. Possibly break in the shoes a little. And the portraits can be used as a special wedding gift from the bride to the groom... a beautiful canvas portrait... or a nice print in a frame and years later he will be showing it off on his desk or on the wall in his office. The kind of picture you, as the bride, would be glad he had display. 

It was a beautiful overcast day... and Christina's dress perfectly complimented her tiny little figure. We had a lot of fun taking pictures... Christina is such a delight to photograph! She has a beautiful smile that lights up her whole face and she's SO photogenic. It was a pleasure to capture these cherished memories. 

These are some of my favorite shots from the day... please enjoy....


So Elegant... & Graceful.


Christina searched for months for the "perfect" shoe... it had to be elegant and red!
She saw these and had to have them. I just love the expression on her face in this one...

There's that Beautiful Smile!


Looking Radiant...


I love this one...


One of my Very Favorite shots of the day!

Baby Portraits: Harlee Jo

Harlee is my adorable red-headed niece, who I love dearly. This summer while visiting my family in Nevada, I had the privilege to capture a few photos of her in a.... Watermelon! 
She just LOVED it... (I thought she would cry, because its slimy... I know I would have) 
Instead, she was just chopping down on it. She is such a cutie! 
Please Enjoy a few of my favorite pictures from the day...


Oh, how I love her....
