Keeping with tradition of the last 3 years I posted about our Halloween adventures. Only this year, I posted over on our family blog as that is getting more attention these days.Here’s an excerpt:
“I normally am obsessed with Halloween. Seriously. I love everything about it. Not the creepy part, but the fun, costume parade, trick-or-treat, decorate, dress up part as evidenced by the last 3 years of Halloween documented on my blog here, here, and here (Wow, check out how LITTLE my kids were in 2010).
This year has been totally different. I told the kids they could be whatever we could find costumes for in the attic (in a house that isn’t ours) or that we could easily make or borrow. I have 2 Halloween decorations on my front porch, and really, I just haven’t been excited. I think its the stress. Of being far away from home, our normal traditions, our family and friends. We are homeschooling and it hit me Monday that meant any “class” Halloween party would be all me. Add to that Sam leaving tomorrow for a business conference for 4 days, and then the fact that we are leaving Virginia for good in less than 2 weeks. I’m just….overwhelmed. Unfortunately, Halloween was the first to feel my lack of motivation to do anything extraordinary.”
While I may not currently be shooting photo sessions or weddings by the dozens, it has been pretty busy around here. For those that are curious what is going on while my photo blog sits dormat – check out this excerpt from over on our family blog and follow us there.
““There it is!! I see it!” An 820 mile road trip and a previous week filled with anxiety for the unknown ended as we pulled parallel to the campground and spotted a red truck pulling a shiny, silver, Airstream through the guard station and back into the campsites. Movies, books, and toys forgotten, the kids craned their necks to look out the window and keep the Airstream in view. I’m pretty sure I was bouncing up and down in the front seat with excitement.”

How lucky we were to fly to California and be there for James & Ayano’s wedding celebration! James is Sam’s cousin, and we are so happy that he and Ayano found each other and are extremely happy.Hooray! Here’s their slideshow with more photos to follow soon!
My little brother got married!! We were so happy to be able to spend the day with them and celebrate their wedding!! We hired Katie Landers to come second shoot/first shoot the ceremony and she is AMAZING. It was so fun to work with her and it was great to be in the ceremony and not photographing it.
We started out with a First Look.
And then the ceremony.
And the party!
A few bride and groom images when the lighting got nice.
Erik’s awesome suit is from Dress Code Custom. They do an AMAZING job with suits & tuxes.
They also had a reception in Sandy (the next evening) where my parents live, and wow. The backyard was incredibly decked out. It was gorgeous. We are so grateful for all the friends, neighbors, and ward members that helped set up. My amazing 2nd shooter, Jami Edman, did a fabulous job capturing the event so that I could mingle with friends and family, and chase my kiddos around the yard.
And just so you can see how incredibly cute my family is, here is a photo of us.Sam is also sporting a custom shirt & pants from Dress Code Custom, and dang…. he looks GOOD.
