Berkley turns 5

I can't believe my baby is 5. It just seems ridiculous that I am a mom of a 5 year old. I can hardly wrap my brain around it. But it's here and we celebrated with family and friends. She had so much fun with everyone! What I had planned took up about 30-40 minutes of the party and the rest was all Berkley. We decorated cupcakes, played pin the tail on the pony, had cake and opened presents. As you will see from the photos, Berkley took all her friends up to her room and they all got dressed up in different costumes. It was the cutest thing! They just kept going up to her room and putting differnt things on. It seemed like everyone had a great time, and I'm so glad they did! We enjoyed every second of it! Happy birthday my sweet girl. I love you so much!!

After the party, grandma and grandpa had one more surprise for Berk...a kitchen!

{ utah wedding photography giveaway }

I am SO incredibly excited for this! One reason I absolutely love weddings is all the emotion and happiness that I see in the eyes of the couples. It makes my heart happy to see that two people have found each other and want to be together forever. Every time I shoot a wedding it brings me back to mine and all the emotions I felt that day. It’s hard to believe that your love for your husband or wife just grows exponentially after your wedding day, but it does! I LOVE shooting weddings, and I want to give a lucky couple the best wedding present that I can give. I want to be there with them on that wonderful day that they become husband and wife.
It’s such a Facebook world out there I decided to do this giveaway solely through it. Part of entering is to “share” this photo from my Facebook photography page that you will find here:
If you know anyone that is engaged, and living in Utah, PLEASE tell them about it! It's such a great opportunity! If you'd like to share the giveaway on your blog just let me know!!!

{ 7 weeks old }

I can't believe how fast these first 7 weeks has gone! It's been incredible being the mommy of two sweet girls. We are still getting into a routine and figuring out how to get everything done while having two kids, but I think we are getting there. I had my first wedding, after Cece was born, this last Friday and that was hard being away. But I had such a great time! Second most important thing I brought with me was my breast pump. Haha!
Cecelia is starting to chunk up, which I'm so thrilled about. She has started to sleep a good 6-7 hour chunk at night and good naps throughout the morning, which makes me so happy! I'm actually able to be awake during most days. I'm so grateful for how wonderful a big sister that Berkley is. She is so helpful and just loves to snuggle with her little sister. 

 Here are some pictures from the last few weeks!
