I love you Grandpa

There are a few things my grandma keeps at her house these days that for some reason have a little special meaning behind them (to me anyway!). She has her husband and wife praying pictures she hangs above her dining room table, she has some drinking glasses, her old goody hat she used to wear... just small things that remind of memories from my childhood. This homemade shoehorn is one of them. My grandpa died almost 20 years ago and this was one of things that was displayed in their home because one of their sons made it for him. His name is Ivan, which is who my son is named after (James Ivan) I can remember seeing in the house for forever ... and still today I saw at my grandmas (reminding me of grandpa) and couldnt resist taking a couple pictures of it. Just for sentimental value, hopefully my sisters and cousins see it and feel the same way I do about it...

Calli and Bailee...

This is my daughter Calli and her best friend Bailee.. Bailee just moved back to her hometown of Taylor, AZ so we had to do a mini-shoot before she left. The girls just couldn't get enough of posing for the camera!

I just love the black and whites, there is just something about them that make her look so fantastic. I'll have to take her again to make sure I get some real smiles!

I had a session with Hayli on Friday night that ended up getting cut way short.... but luckily she was so cute I was sure to get a few good shots . ..
