This little baby is SOOO tiny. She is a 5 pounder. It's amazing what a difference a few pounds makes on a little newborn. I've never seen a tinier baby than little Tennley. She is such a beauty too. She looks like a girl (not always apparent with newborns). She has delicate little features and long black eyelashes.

She was such a little sweetie for this shoot. She slept like a rock. We couldn't wake her up for anything. I LOVE newborns.

McCall and Dane.

One word....


Memorial Day.

Today we went and visited my husbands father who passed away last year. We still can't believe he is gone. It is so unreal. We miss him so much.

And we saw these flags honoring veterans. It was such beautiful thing to see.

Memorial Day is such a special day.

THEN after we decorated graves we decided it would be fun to go on a 15 mile bike ride the next day. We woke up the morning of the schedule bike ride and it was pouring rain. But did we cancel it? No! My in-laws are hard core. So we loaded up kids, Violet, Grandma and all for the 15 mile bike ride.

It rained for the first 5 miles. Stopped for the middle 5 and then rained and hailed the last 5. Overall it was surprisingly fun.

We fed the ducks at Utah Lake as our final destination point.

Archetype Beauty.


The original pattern or model from which all things of the same kind are copied or on which they are based; a model or first form; prototype.


The quality or aggregate of qualities in a person or thing that gives pleasure to the senses or pleasurably exalts the mind or spirit.


Archetype Beauty is a new hair and makeup artistry company owned by my dear friend and former bride Valerie Osmond.

I was so stoked to work with her on the images for her new website. She is an amazing hair and makeup artist. She's been in the business for years and knows how to make EVERYONE look their best.

She's been cutting my "hippie hair" for the last year, and I can honestly say that she's transformed my lame-O, no style, hippie hair into a fabulous choppy, layered look. She's got skillz! I will never trust anyone else with my hair.

Besides being SO good at what she does, she is so fun to be around. Sweet and good natured, totally down to earth and fabulous. I love this girl!

Her website will be launching within the next week. Until then if you need her contact info shoot me an email and I can hook you up with the details.

Edit mania is almost over. Last post for the week. I'm off to enjoy my holiday weekend!

Steve, Lindsay, and Cooper.

I had a blast with this family. A serious amount of laughing went on. Steve knows one of my old boyfriends from high school and we got some good chuckles as we reminisced about this crazy guy.

Lindsay is the sister of Kinzie. There are lots of sisters in this family, all beautiful, and all SOO much fun. I've done 3 shoots with them so far and every time we get together it's a good time full of laughter and fun.

This little guy is SOOOO cute:
