This Means War...

The men on the Garrett side had quite the battle yesterday.....

I knew I wanted to take footage and they were good sports acting out all my cheesy shots I was insistent on getting.

Check it out, you won't regret it.... or you might. I don't know?

Get ready to feast your eyes on some star performances!

Jude's Arrival

Finally was able to finish this video for my sister.

Aunt Jen I hope you enjoy.

Keep an eye (or ear) out for my favorite parts;

I offer to deliver the baby and my 10 year old sister says, "uh gross."

Mom talking on the phone about how Annabelle will have to leave the room during the actual delivery.

Annabelle suggesting she just ducks behind the chair. I think she was serious?

Nat and I cracking up.

Also just a little warning;

While no private parts are exposed this is titled 'Jude's Arrival'.....

You will see my sister's legs in stirrups in a couple of still shots but that is it.

Consider yourself warned.

Booking My Appointments Just Got A Lot More Fun.......

Had a little craft night when Taylor was here.

We designed some notebook covers as a 'back to school' surprise for Bryton and Ivy.

They were totally awesome.

So a couple weeks ago I made one for myself;

Cause I am selfish like that.

Deal with it.

Tying the Knot......

 Travis and Megan totally got hitched....

But, enough with words
Let's just look at the pics!



The first look:

I can't type the exact words he exclaimed
(because my grandma reads this blog)

But I assure you,
His reaction was PRICELESS!
















Last but not least,

Honestly my personal favorite.
She is a nurse and he is cop.

This image is totally appropriate if you ask me.


Congrats to the two of you!

You'll have to pardon me for my blogging hiatus.

First I was working.

Then I was playing.

Taylor came back to HUMID Minnie with me.

We've had lots of fun.

I had lots of fun,

She probably wanted to gouge her eyes out.

Either way I will be taking her to the airport shortly 

And I may or may not cry my eyes out at Terminal 1.

Enjoy some pics from our Sunday drive.

We took lots of pics and even crafted it up.

Those will have to wait until my depression from her departure lifts.

You've had a birthday shout hurray.....

Corey had a birthday.

He is now 35.

He informed me earlier today he thinks he can still pass for 25.

I thought he was being funny.

Turns out he was serious.

I still laughed?


He asked me yesterday if I still loved him even though he is 35 now.

I said ya I think so.

Then we had a little convo that went like this;

Me: Do you love me now that I'm 28?

Corey: Ya.

Me: How do you know when you love somebody?

Corey: You can feel it in your heart.....and in your privets.

So Without further ado.

Happy Birthday to the man I love with all my heart....

And my privets.

Baby Sister

Baby Sister turned 10 today....

She is growing up way too fast.

It doesn't help that she looks 14.

Seriously, Dad lock the doors!

No dating until she's 45 :)




On top of being beautiful,

She is uber talented.

She is loving,



and already one of the best sisters' anyone could ask for.

We love you Annabelle,

Hope you had a totally FAB birthday!

Headed out to the ranch house in Walker for some din.

All you can eat salad bar and popovers.......

So freaking delish I almost cried.

But I didn't I just bucked up and had me another popover.

Totally enjoying our 4th of July weekend.

We snuck out of town early on wednesday, you can do that you know when your husband is off for the summer and you only technically work one week a month.....

I lived

Since I began taking photography more seriously,
I've noticed I'm missing from most of the photographs that make up the story of our life.

When I develop pictures they are mostly of Corey and Bailey.

It's not that people don't offer to take the picture while I jump in to the shot.

It's that I'm that much of a control freak.

I am really working on it.

I've made it a goal to be more present in photographs.

I want my kids to have pictures of me long after I'm gone.

I want them to have proof that I was here and I was kinda fun.

When I took pictures of Sisty in the hospital I made it a point to capture myself in some of them.

I'm thankful I did.

That was a special day.

A day I will forever recall with fondness.

I will probably always shed a tear or two when I look at the pictures.

I sat here tonight going through them and I thought of something else.

I am grateful for a brother in law who strapped my camera around his neck and snapped away.

He did that when my niece was born too.

Some of my most loved pictures of myself are the ones where I am holding Rylie.

Just hours old.

And now Jude.

Just minutes old.

Let me share a few with you.



I will forever cherish the picture below.

My sister was contracting hard core.

She was ready to go.

The doctor had arrived.

And I was terrified.

That face I'm making is legit fear.

I was a wreck, and cried for most of it.

Okay ALL of it.


There I am!

Holding Baby Jude.

I feel really blessed to have been a part of it all.

And I feel really blessed to have visual proof that I was there.

High Roller

Sonja is a high roller now.

She just got herself some brand new granite counter tops.

It's quite the controversy if you ask me.


Underneath her old counter tops....

If you shimmied just underneath the bar.....

and laid on your back.....

You could read my Aunt Mysti's ode of love to her High School BF.

He is now her husband.

Hello my lovelies....

My Goodness,

What a busy month June has been for me thus far.
Had a few projects up in the air.

I am quite a juggler,
You should see me.

One such project was quite special.
It involves my sisty and her new baby boy.

You will have to wait for those pics.
Right now I'm working on a 'Save the Date'...

Sneaky Peaky?
Okay fine.


As a side note, but, equally important.

I think I am having heart burn right now?
I don't get heart burn so I'm not sure what it feels like.

I feel like I've had a foreign object shoved halfway down my throat all  day?

Is that heart burn?
Or is there just a foreign object shoved down my throat?

Family Fun Photos

Family Photos.

These are for you.

You know who you are.

You probably thought I lied about your photo collages not uploading properly on Facebook.
