Elmhorst Family

who doesn't love babies??? I mean really what is better than a sweet cuddly newborn baby? today I'll be doing posts for all the little kiddies I did this winter. they are long over due and I can't wait to make you all overdose on cuteness :)

I'm so glad I got the chance to take pictures of this adorable family! I mean s'riously! they are just too cute for words! and oh so sweet! Mat and Jenny were so laid back and I barely had to direct them at all! and their kids? oh em gee! Helena is simply a gorgeous little girl and I almost kidnapped their brand new son Solly :)

Scottie's Senior Session

I have known Scottie my whole life. Like... my whole life. Our moms were friends and our grandmas too. it's kind of hard to believe that Scottie is a senior this year! We had so much fun the day we took his senior pictures. Even if we almost got into a car accident and there just happened to be a blizzard getting in our way. Scottie kept me laughing the entire time and he is definitely a natural in front of the camera I barely had to direct him!

Scott- You have truly become an amazing young man. you are so funny and one of the sweetest guys I know. good luck next year! I know you will go far with whatever you decide to do!

Brittney and Jace-Styling Your Shoot

Jace and I went to school together and even though Brittney and I haven't spent much time together I feel like we are old friends. I gave away a shoot a while back on my facebook page and boy am I glad these two won! :) they braved the cold and rocked out this session like no one else could! part of the reason their pictures turned out so well is because Brittney and I took the time to talk a little bit and plan, so Hannah and I could style the shoot. Brittney and Jace love being outside and reading so we incorporated that into the session. Jace even found us an awesome location.
Seriously, if you haven't thought about styling your sessions you really should. please please please people! do something that tells a story and makes your pictures personal.
now styling your shoot is not a necessity buuut if you do it you will get pictures like this

Catch up.. Ketchup... What?

Just thought I would catch you up on what we have been up to. :)
I'll make it short and sweet though
Like I said in the last post.. I have been getting busy.. which Eden does not like

But she LOVED Christmas

especially the tasty ornaments... wait.. those are definitely not for eating.. oops

and loved all her fun new presents
like her alphabet books

and her ball pit!

and of course... her panda pillow!

My mom's friend Kim came to visit last weekend and introduced Eden to art

this will be a little rudolph picture for christmas next year when Kim is all done with it :)

this is Eden asking for more paint on her hand

this is Eden after we told her we were all done

Kim made us Tikka Masala... yummm

like I said Kim introduced Eden to painting.. and then she gave us this great idea to mix milk and food coloring to paint our toast :) we tried it out today and needless to say Eden loved loved loved it!

that's all for now guys!

**keep in mind these pictures are all SOOC.. I haven't had the time to go through and edit them all... so go easy on me :)
