Exchange Student

Our exchange son is here! His name is Pond and he’s here all the way from Thailand! He’ll be staying with us for ten months. I can’t wait to get to know him better!

Chicken Racing and Pioneer Day Fun

The girls and I thought it would be fun to do some chicken racing for Pioneer Day this year. They didn’t really believe that I could make them ride the chickens but through the wonder of photoshop I was able to create these fun images for them! They thought it was fabulous!

Eloise and the Broken Arm

We were so excited today to have an interview to become a host family for an exchange student this year. During the interview, Eloise decided she wasn’t getting enough attention and she decided to jump off the bunk bed onto a puffy chair. She hit the chair wrong and bounced onto the floor where she broke her arm just above the elbow. Dave took her to instacare while I finished up the interview. They splinted it and sent her to Primary Children’s hospital for surgery. I left Ruby with my sister and went up to be with Eloise. Here are some pictures from the ordeal.

Today was Ruby’s blessing day. She’s wearing a custom French style blessing dress made by my mother, Debra Lloyd Gull. I think this might be her finest work yet! The day was absolutely beautiful and it was so wonderful to see all our family and friends as they came out in support.

2013 Virtue Summit

A little rain couldn’t stop my girls from having a wonderful time at Virtue Summit this year. If you want more information about Summit, visit www.heroicyouth.com. Some of my favorite things were the girls dancing around the Maypole and the fathers dancing with their daughters in the rain.

Independence Day!

We had a wonderful time celebrating Independence Day with our family and friends. My brother Paul put together a private fireworks show this year and it was spectacular! We couldn’t believe how good it was!

Riverton Independence Day Parade

We decided to brave the crowds today and go to the Riverton City Independence Day Parade. It was a great parade and it was nice to have it the day before the holiday.

Ruby is 3 months old!

Time sure flies when you have a newborn. She’s growing so fast I can’t even stand it. She is seriously the cutest baby to ever live.

My New Calling

I don’t think I have ever been happy about a client postponing a session. I was all excited to shoot so I decided to finally work on a personal project I have been planning a while. I don’t think the stars could have aligned for this shot any more perfectly. Who knew she could jump like that (I had her jump off a chair). I started screaming when I saw it on the back of the camera! It was one of those amazing moments in photgraphy that remind why I love it so much. Pure magic!

Eloise’s “Tiny Traveler” series photo shoot.

I had a fun idea to do an old fashioned photoshoot for Eloise’s third year photos. I am so happy with how these turned out. These are going to be my favorites for years to come, I am sure.
