I'm back!

We're back after a long and restful cruise throughout the Mexican Riviera! Ahhhh, it was so amazing and SO needed for my family. Life gets crazy and hectic around here, so it was a fabulous way for us to disappear for awhile and just BREATHE! We brought Violet along and that was SO much fun. She loved playing at the beach and loved to run wild on the cruise ship. And everywhere she went she had "teddy" in tow. I swear, she is obsessed with that dang teddy bear. Some of my siblings came along, and brought their kids too, so it was an original family party.

Memorable highlights include:

-Wild donkey's running around at the beaches. Umm, okay, weird and gross. They kept begging for food, and trying to ummm, how should I say this....get the freak on with each other (if you know what I mean;)

-My brother asking every mexican tour guide "Donda esta la coca?" AKA "Where is the cocaine?" He thought this was hilarious. Actually, it kind of was. But the locals probably thought we were so lame.

-Getting ripped off ALL THE TIME! I swear Mexico IS NOT CHEAP! We got ripped off so much (ha ha!). Don't even ASK about the $100.00 tab for some shrimp tacos and a pina colada. It makes me laugh my head off to think back on it, but at the time it wasn't funny.

-Violet and Teddy

-"Man Overboard" on our cruise ship

-Eating massive, and disgusting amounts of food on the cruise ship. I swear, no human should ever eat as much as we ate. My jeans are SO stinkin' tight now. I've been wearing sweatpants all week.

-There were lots of fun things too!!! Laying at the beaches was my favorite. We also saw the Acapulco cliff divers which was amazing. We went snorkeling over this amazing ship wreck that has now grown into a coral reef and that was killer. We did some sight seeing, and even hit up the Farmacia. Good times!

Here's just a few shots I snagged from the vacation with my little point-and-shoot camera. I debated about bringing my nice gear, but I didn't want to worry about hauling it around.

Anyways, I'M BACK!!

Vio, Ari, and of course "Teddy."

Ben and Lauren!!!

Ahhh Lauren and Ben! I love these two! We had so much fun on their wedding day. They got married in the temple and then had a small luncheon afterwards at Lauren's parent's house. Lauren is an art history major, and photography was the most important thing for her wedding day. Her and Ben felt that my photography would represent their style well. Their main requests were to "not do too much traditional stuff, and have fun." So we did! We shot on the temple grounds for about 20 minutes. Then we ventured out into some nearby fields and got some killer shots out in the hay with the moody blue skies in the background. Then we were driving and saw some cool antique cars, so we pulled over and shot there for a few minutes. Then we got hungry so we stopped at a gas station and had candy and milk shakes. It was seriously more like hanging out. Which I LOVED. It was so fun. Check out some of the shots:

Hello to the new opening image on my website:)

I am SO in love with this one! Probably one of my favorite shots from this year.

Violet had one of the best days of her life this week. She got to spend an entire day with her two favorite cousins. Ariana and Ava.

I can't believe I got all three of them to sit still for half a second to get this picture:
These are my favorite...

And this one makes me want to cry every time I see it because it's so dang cute:)

Todd and Molly are so cute. They met on a family vacation 5 years ago. Todd was there with Molly's little brother. He was 17, she was 23.They didn't officially start their relationship until Todd got home from his mission. But now here they are, five years after their first meeting, and they are getting married.
