Mr. North

Where I live all the high schools in the area hold male pageants to raise money for The Children’s Miracle Network.  It is such an amazing event for such an incredible cause, it’s heart-breaking and heart-warming all at the same time!  12 guys fund-raise for 4 months and then compete in a pageant for the title of “Mr. (Mascot/School)”  My son, Cole, was asked by a friend of ours to walk with him during the Hero segment.  Cole was so excited!  This was his third time to be in one of these pageants, but the first he can remember.  🙂

Tyler & Cole were dressed as Tinkerbelle & Peter Pan.  (Cole was thrilled that it meant he could hold a fake knife, which he waved at the audience the entire time with a huge grin!  🙂  Sounds scary, but it was adorable!!!)


We were all very excited when Tyler was crowned Mr. North!  Cole was sitting in the crowd saying again and again, “I hope he wins…I hope Tyler wins…”  He jumped out of hit seat when they announced him the winner!

My precious little man, Cole & Tyler aka Mr. North 2008


Congratulations, Tyler!  You totally deserve it!!  🙂




Jaclyn (Part 2)

I love, love, love this picture!  🙂

My niece, Jaclyn, met me downtown for the second half of her session.  The weather was amazing, so we were very lucky!  🙂  Jaclyn was a great sport about all the poses and locations I dragged her through- ultimately, I am very pleased with her shots!  She’s just so cute!


Amy (Part 2)

I met up with Amy a couple of days ago to shoot some additional Senior pictures.  I really like to do two seperate sessions, one during the Summer or Fall when the weather is gorgeous and another in Spring, closer to graduation.  Amy is amazing- she is such a sweetheart and obviously adorable!  We had a lot of fun and managed to get some really great shots!  🙂  Congrats on your upcoming graduation, Amy!

The picture above is one of my favorites!!

Another favorite!  🙂

Albuquerque, NM

Last month I went to Albuquerque, New Mexico and I am a little slow to get some of my pictures posted!  🙂  We went to Old Town, which is over 300 years old!  I love history and Old Town is quite authentic- it’s truly amazing and beautiful.  If it hadn’t been so cold and windy, I probably would have spent ALL DAY snapping away.  However- I did manage to take over 200 pictures in about 2 hours…  🙂

The sunrise from our hotel window.  Breathtaking, isn\'t it?

These flags are in the courtyard just in front of a gazebo.  (See the plaque below...)

This beautiful church still has Sunday Mass!  (It was going on while I was taking this picture!)

This is one of my favorite pictures!

This is carved right into the tree- I don\'t know how old it is or how often it is painted?

This tile was in a brick wall in front of a little patio restauant.
