Jensen Family - The holiday shoot!

So many people say, "I want family photos but not til the Spring." I DO love springtime photos but I love winter photos just as much I think! How much fun are these? I honestly love this little family and love photographing them!   Here is the last photo shoot we did with them and their cute cousins.  They are adorable!!!   They wanted some holiday photos and I'm sure these images will bring a smile to their faces for YEARS to come...

Thankful heart...

This Thanksgiving, my blessings went up in numbers...  We are welcoming two wonderful people in to our family, Chaley and Blake!   How grateful I am for family.  There is no one on earth I would rather be with...

I am thankful for ALL my family... and that is a large number!  I love you all!
I am grateful for a father that turned 90 this year and a mother that turns 84!  I love you!
Great friends are among my biggest blessings... thank you!  (You know who you are.)
Being an American!  Being free!  Our armed forces that fight for our freedom and their families... to you I give my most humble gratitude.
Good health is such a blessing...
Living in the country with amazing neighbors that treat you like family... you are family.
Being able to work.  My grandfather, when he was around 90, told me one day that I should always be grateful for the ability to work.  At the time, I certainly thought that was a funny thing to be thankful for but now, I couldn't agree with him more!  I love and miss you grandpa!
I am thankful for my heritage, all those who came before me and paved the way!
This list could go on and on and on but I will end with one more thing I am grateful for...  Faith.  Faith in a loving Heavenly Father and in His son Jesus Christ.

I really like this quote:
"Every experience God gives us, every person He puts in our lives, is the perfect preparation for a future only He can see."                                             --Corrie ten Boom

I am thankful for all you people He has put in my life.  You have enriched my life a great deal!  Thank you to those who have let me capture you in photos.   It has been a great year!

Wedding Details - Derek & Krista's reception!

Confession... when I have photos to edit, it's like a good book that I can't put down.   Driven to work, edit, play and have some fun!   Well, you can't imagine how talented Sharon Durfey and her daughter Shanda are.   Shanda made the most beautiful table decorations, Sharon made a cake that was AMAZING and the two of them prepared beautiful, delicious food!   It was a stunning reception.
More reception photos to come... 

Derek & Krista - They are married!

This beautiful couple were married in the Draper Temple on Saturday!   Congratulations you two... there is no doubt in my mind that you will have an absolutely wonderful life together!   ...reception photos coming soon...
