We snuck out right after church to snap these and I just love the memories we’ll always have of such cute little friends together.

I loved photographing Dustin & Mariah! They are beautiful & their genuine love is so easily seen & captured!
Couples like them inspire me to be more loving & kind! (You two rock!)

Sam & Cassidy: Boise Idaho LDS Temple

Just sharing a peek into the next lovely celebration I got to photograph this weekend!
Sam & Cassidy were sealed in the Boise Temple!

 photo blog16_zpsfpbnlvde.jpg

The day started out with a downpour of rain. It was coming down so hard we could hardly drive! But thankfully, once we pulled up to the temple, there was only a light sprinkle. By the end of the evening, the sun was out and it really was perfect!

UOP Graduation

 photo blog7_zpsf492b9ce.jpg
What a fun day to share! I can’t believe that these last 3 years just cruised by…Jeff is a dentist! I was so filled with emotion on graduation day….so proud of not only Jeff…but proud of my sweet girls for getting through 3 years of having such a busy daddy. I am so thankful for the experience of helping get my husband through dental school…I grew more as a person in those 3 years that I ever could have imagined. My relationship with my daughters feels even more rock solid because of the many late nights and weekends that Jeff was away studying…the many many many outings we went on with just us girls…Jeff was so busy that my girls went through a LOT with me. All of the shopping, chores, and cooking….park trips… the handled it all so well and I just can’t believe we did it!
Anyways, on to the pics… so proud of this guy!

 photo blog12_zps843b6a14.jpg
I was a little bit (ok a LOT BIT) sad that my 3 girls were so sick (with what we later found out was walking pneumonia) that they had to miss graduation….but happy that Jefferson and Jeff’s parents were able to make it!

Legion of Honor

We met up with some friends at the Legion of Honor at the beginning of June. Boy, do I love that place!

We walked the halls and I loved every second of that gorgeous art.

The kids never last that long, but it’s still a lot of fun.
San Francisco has so many fun places for me to visit with the kids. I just love it.

Afterwards, we let the kids have fun outside & snapped a few pictures.
