I went to Californa for the first time ever! I don't count the layover, that one time. Haha. It was SO pretty! Okay, taking our kids on a vacation for the first time somewhere besides our parents house was a little sketchy, but we made a lot of great memories!
We we were going to go camping over Memorial Day weekend, but then we decided that it might be too cold in tents for the children, however we NEEDED a vacation. Californa was perfect since we had been wanting to go since we moved to Arizona.
We were happy that we hit the perfect beaches for our first time. We highly reccomend La Jolla Beach to see the seals and Coranado Island. We also did a Bay Cruise with Flagship Cruises. It was extremely fun and educational! We also had tickets to go in the USS Midway Museum but that will have to wait. We just had too much we wanted to fit in to our short stay. I know when we do get to go, we will love it. It's a museum on water in an actual air craft carrier. I just think you all need to go!
I was really sad that I had forgotten to take my camera on our bay cruise, but I did my best to take pictures at the beaches! I will cherish these priceless images and memories forever!
It has been such a humbling experience getting this website up! For that past few years I have mainly focused on *not my business* and only taken sessions randomly. In the future, I plan to do a lot more with my business, blog and photography career while still focusing on what matters most, of course. :)
I have to thank my family, clients and friends for all of the support, help and motivation. I cannot do this with out each and every one of you!
I have a lot of HUGE ideas and dreams for this blog! The ideas keep me up at night. It's a pain! Haha. I need to crack the whip and get started! Please be patient with me if I am one of those *not very consistent bloggers.* Hehe. Some days cooking dinner is a difficult task! :p
Portrait Session Posts
I will be posting my portrait sessions on the blog! I haven't posted much of my work anywhere but Facebook and Instagram; I have so many beautiful images to share!
I will be sharing little bits of my family life on this blog as well. When I take my camera on a vacation or update pictures of my family, I am excited to share them here on the blog! My family is the cutest ever!
I am also passionate about helping others with photography. I have discovered that while teaching others, I learn an incredible amount myself! My friend Jessica has inspired me a lot while I have been teaching her basic things about photography. She is so excited to learn, and by that, she helped me to be motivated to take a leap in my career.
There is so much knowledge at our finger tips. There is a lot to learn in the photography world and ALWAYS room for growth and improvement. In the future, you may see a little bit of what I have taught some women who have shadowed me. I also hope to share some of my personal favorite things to do at sessions and some of my experiences in the photography world.
The absolute most exciting post that is happening on this blog is going to be featuring the families I have photographed. I will consistently ask different families I have connected with to write a post for the blog. Each post will be about the same topic. It's going to be very special, and I can't wait for the readers to be touched by the topic you will read about.
Stay tuned! I have high hopes and big dreams for this blog, and I hope you're just as thrilled as I am!
It's hard to believe Linden actually turned One! She is the sweetest little girl with just the right amount of sass! These pictures were spontaneous and quick and I was so happy that we got some good smilies out of her! She loves walking, feeding her baby doll, getting her own way, EATING, holding moms cell phone, and music. She really just enjoys life! I can't forget that she loves her big brother and loves to play in the sand box. :)
I know this isn't a proper "first blog post" But I will get to that later. Here are some cute pics of Little Linden Lou! Happy ALMOST 13 months old!
Hi there. I'm Nicole. I'm a small town girl from Idaho who loves photography, my Savior and my family. You'll find me in the mountains with my camera around my neck begging my husband, "lets just take one more picture of your S'more." I love to blog about my photography sessions, family life and much more! Come read along.
