FAMILY CHRISTMAS PICTURES


Oh man, I love my little family! It always takes a little convincing to get Eric to agree to family pictures. In his mind he would rather just get a tripod and do it all on our own. But after seeing these pictures and working with Erica I think he'll sing a different tune. There's something more special and more formal about taking pictures with a photographer and Erica was amazing! She had great direction but also was able to get candid shots of our little family. She played Disney music for Zoe to keep her occupied and she made us feel right at ease. Make sure to look her up if you are in the Seattle area! Also, how dreamy is this location? I sent Erica a picture of what I had in mind for a backdrop and she delivered!

*Also take note of the millions of different facial expressions Zoe makes throughout this shoot. I'm dying!!

^^ My all time favorite pictures of these two now! Zoe loves nothing more than being spun around and thrown up in the air, my little daredevil! ^^ 




 ^^ Zoe literally does a million different facial expressions in the span of a minute. This is one of my all time favorites. I could just kiss that scunchie little nose a million times over. She's so animated, I love it! ^^



^^ This picture just cracks me up! We asked Zoe to do "touchdown" (seen above), and when we all clapped afterwards she did THIS! Our little entertainer! ^^ 




HELLO FROM ICELAND!


Hello world, it's me again! Nothing too exciting to talk about over here on my little space of the Internet, except announce this little bump that has taken over my body for the last 5 1/2 months. Surprise!! More on that later, but for now just wanted to do a little update on what else has been happening in my life. Eric and I just got back from a week long vacation in London and Iceland. It was SO hard leaving Zoe behind (it was my first time ever being away from her), but it's so fun to have Eric all to myself for once. I'm doing things a little backwards because we visited Iceland second, but I have too many pictures to rifle through from London (and by the time we got to Iceland my camera had died so you'll have to suffice with iPhone shots - but seriously, who forgets their camera charger when they are going to Iceland!!! UGH!).

Iceland was absolutely incredible, and extremely cold. We only had a 24 hour layover here but I already know I want to head back as soon as possible (and preferably in the Summer time). In just 24 hours we were able to swim in the Blue Lagoon and road trip to see craters, waterfalls, geysers, and lots and lots of Icelandic horses (the cutest). It's hard to take pictures of everything, they have a pretty strict rule about pulling over on the side of the roads to take pictures (probably because no one would get anywhere). But don't take my word for it, check out the rest of my pictures to see for yourself!

IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, ZOE JEAN


ZOE'S GROWING NURSERY

FOURTH OF JULY


A little behind, but wanted to share these little gems from our Fourth of July! Every year we always head off to the mountains in Idaho at Eric's family vacation home. It's in the cutest little mining town where we go ATVing and dirt biking. Lots of walking and thrifting. I'd share a link to our past times in Wallace, but something is going haywire with photobucket at the moment so just believe me when I tell you how magical it all is!

LOVE WINNIE JAMES

RASPBERRIES FOR ZOE


Do you know the book, "Blueberries for Sal"? I read it to Zoe every so often and when we were going raspberry picking I just kept thinking of this book. More berries were consumed than picked (whoops), and luckily we didn't loose Zoe to any bears. However, we did lose her to some horses. It felt like we were in Tuscany out in the middle of no where in the blazing sun and then we turn down another vine path and standing right there are the prettiest horses! We had this little hidden pathway and horses all to ourselves. So magical! Here's to a magical summer!
