Merry Christmas Callie!

Callie looked so adorable in her little frilly dress for her Christmas photos. I just thought I would share a couple of these. She is now 8 weeks old and such a happy baby!

Best friends graduate together!

Ashley and Andrea graduated in May of 2008 and came to me with a desire to have me take their senior photos. They both were beautiful models! They both had incredible eyes and was willing to try some new ideas with me. There are more sessions planned with Ashley and Andrea this spring!

Happy to be graduating!

Megan's Graduating!

What an amazing and inspiring senior girl! This girl is passionate for the Lord, rocks at just about any musical instrument there is, and is intelligent and funny! I am so grateful to have the opportunity to photograph Megan. Her smile and personality just poured out of each photo! Here are just a few of my favs!

It's Christmas time in the Halstead's house!

WOW! I look at these photos and cannot believe how big my own children have gotten since last year. Each of my children are so unique! When I look at these photos, I can't help but get sentimental. They are my world! I love that each one of them are at their own stage in life that is completely different from the other. Rylan, my oldest, is becoming such a little man. (Not so much little though!) He is so compassionate and creative. Jaylen is my jump start every day! Jaylen wants to do be doing something at all times. He is the one who inspires me to live each of my days to the fullest! If I could have a 10th of his energy, I would be set for life. Ethan started school this year for the first time. It is so amazing to see him become social, making friends, and being excited about learning. His passion in life right now is to be the best UNO card player in our family, and for a 4 year old, he is surprisingly very good! Addison has probably changed the most in the last year. She will have full conversations with you about her day, what she wants to wear, and how she feels. We had a day of pampering on Saturday, doing nails and hair. Now she walks around telling everyone to look at her pretty pink nails! I believe I have created a monster!
