Mom and Dad Porter

Ben's parents and brother visited us this week from Utah. I love it when they come to visit; it feels like we never moved from Utah and that we still live down the street from them.

Good times.

This past summer, I took pictures for Ben's entire family and being quite nervous, they didn't turn out to my expectations. So when Ben's parents came, I was secretly hoping they would let me photograph them again.

I don't know why I am more nervous when I take pictures for family. Maybe because I want them to be absolutely perfect?

Ben's parents agreed and I was excited to give it another try. Mom and Dad could not stop laughing the entire time.

Ben's parents are very special people. They have an amazing family because they are amazing parents. I tell everyone that I think Ben's family is perfect. Everyone likes each other and they all enjoy being around each other. On top of that, everyone is extremely talented and beautiful.

One day, I hope to be as good of parents as they are. I guess I'm off to a great start. . . I married their son!

Aliotti Family Sneak Peak

I had the priviledge of spending time with the Aliotti girls. As a gift, they wanted to get some pictures to give to their Dad/Husband for Christmas. He is a fireman and will be retiring next year. Can you think of a better gift?

As you can tell, the helmets have been well used! The one Robin is wearing is melted on the top!

Stu Sneak Peak-Part One

Stu is the next James Bond or maybe he's just one of the Men in Black. He's an extraordinary athletic in football and golf and knows exactly what he wants to do in life. This was our second attempt to take his Senior pictures. The first time, it rained all day.

Today it didn't rain at all. . .until our session began! Can you believe it? I was very flustered to say the least, but we decided to see what we could do. With his Mom as my lovely assistant, we battled with the rain.

Stu was a trooper and busted out poses like "Blue Steel" and "Magnum". Is "professionally goodlooking" a college major? Ben Stiller would know.

This is only Part One, since the rain successfully cut our session short in more ways than one. Darn you rain! Next time, I promise perfect weather, a crazy and goofy photographer, a giant candy bar and the best pictures you have ever seen!

Thank you Stu and Amy for sticking with me!

Jenkins Family Sneak Peak

What a fabulous week! I had the opportunity to take pictures for the Jenkins family. If you have ever been on my website, you will recognize this family. Their pictures have been some of my favorites! I was so flattered when Sarah asked me to take her family's picture again. I was doubly excited when I saw what they were wearing. I don't know what it is, but lately, I just love colors that POP! Let me show you!

See what I mean! Pop!

Heidi- Sneak Peak

I was so excited to do a session with Heidi. Heidi is a published author and my friend. She has her second book, "Miss Delacourt Has Her Day" coming out in February 2011. How cool is that? Many people can call themselves an author, but how many can say that their work has been published? On top of that, how many people can say their first book was so popular that they have a second one published.



Remarkable. That's what Heidi is.

As I am writing this, I'm nervous about Heidi reading this and checking my grammer skills!

Heidi wanted a picture she could put on her blog, Facebook, and any other thing that she would need a picture of herself for. So, with no more delays, I give you the famous Heidi Ashworth!
