Mikki's Cake

Braydon and I did an experiment with fondant on Sunday afternoon- and yes, Brade did help. When we were engaged we took a cake decorating class together at Roberts crafts (I would recommend it- you'll find out if there are any creative genes available to your future little ones...) So a year later we have attempted it again. It was really fun and ended up pretty cute!

Old Spice!

Adriana loves old fashioned portraits- she has been totally inspired from their distant relatives so we attempted to re-create some of those. We had a great time and the lighting last night was beautiful (temperature too.) We only suffered one injury: Michael cut his chin on Adriana's dress when she jumped into his arms for the "twirl-me around" love shots... Adriana was a wonderful nurse and cleaned him up nicely w/ wipes and a band aid. I am so excited for these two to "tie the knot"... they are so great together!

Brandi & Javen

Let's talk about the cutest family... Brandi (cousin of mine who is a Hair Stylist) is married to Brandon (a Stud baseball player and Investor) and they are perfect for eachother! 2 months ago Javen was born (1 month after his cousin Jaxson) and now they are just the most darling family. Brandi says that Brandon can always make little Javen laugh, so as you can see in these pics Brandon wasn't there... and Javen had just woken up from a nap. Hopefully we'll do another Family session soon...

Time for a change...

I've decided that after looking at millions of blogs while being sneaky at work... that it's time for me to make a change. I take tons of pictures of all the important people in my life and many new friends as well; however, I have about 10 pictures of Brade and I since we've been married. We work so much that we've forgotten that we're supposed to have some fun too! So this weekend it going to be filled with fun and pictures... Check back soon!

Oh Happy Day...

Kim & Ezra tied the knot on June 16th! They looked so beautiful and happy together throughout the whole day and then they were off to Hawaii for a week! How fun! Ezra returned from his Mission in Brazil around April (or early May) and 5 days later he proposed to his love Kimmie- and now, 2 months later they are officially the Irvins!

So toward the end of the luncheon/reception I hear screaming and giggling... so I walk downstairs to find ALL of the grandchildren in the bathroom screaming about a "monster" in the shower! The monster was an 1/8" piece of red plastic next to the drain. Jason is the oldest of the kids and he did the most screaming- Emily was just sweet and then a 1 yr old stuck his arm down the toilet so we figured the "monster party was over... it was hilarious! Kids have great imaginations; can't wait to have some of my own!

Road to Stardom!

The Luttrell's are my awesome cousins! Jacob has the most beautiful voice (sang backup for Kelly Clarkson- I met her at their wedding...) and he is the greatest Daddy in the world! His beautiful wife Brittney is just as talented too; she has always been a dancer and performed her whole life long- it was really fun to spend a few minutes with them and hear the new songs that will be out soon (just wait!) and be around their sweet little boy Jaxson! Family is so wonderful- I'm thrilled that they moved here from L.A. so we'll get to spend more time with them.
P.S. Jacob will probably be the biggest thing real soon- let me know if you'd like a sample of his stuff- he has weekend shows too that are SO entertaining...

Truly good friends...

Michael & Adriana are the definition of happiness. These two met through their jobs at Nordstroms; Michael in shoes dept and Adriana in the Bobbie Brown makeup dept. They go so perfectly together; he makes her laugh and she adores him... You can tell that they have a great relationship and really appreciate eachother- Have I mentioned how beautiful Adriana is... and so sweet. They love chocolate and the color blue. Adriana wore the necklace her Dad had given to her Mom many years ago; and it added so much sentimental sweetness to their pictures. She is so thoughtful!

Photo with Davina

Talk about insiration... Davina Fear finally took our pictures and I was so touched by what was captured in these shots. I love the tenderness and true love that I see when I look at them. I will treasure our pictures and I love that we now have some documentary of how we are together. It make me have butterflies when I see Brade in these pictures!
Davina was wonderful to be with; she is so down to earth and makes you feel very comfortable. I think we're planning another photo shoot with her but this time we'll be in costume... Stay tuned for that! I learned a lot of things from her that have inspired me - I can't wait for the upcoming events!
