July 29, 2007

I’ve decided to post our vacation pics over several days, so tonight I thought I’d do our day at Sea World, even though we went there toward the end of our vacation. I decided not to take my SLR camera because of how big it is, so I had my mom’s point-and-shoot with me. Nice […]

Weekend Hike

July 17, 2007

This weekend we went on a fun hike with some friends. It was a beautiful evening and felt so good to be up in the mountains instead of the 105 degree city! We went to Cecret Lake up at Alta in Little Cottonwood Canyon. Alta is one of our favorite ski resorts so it’s kind […]

I had the opportunity to do a photoshoot for one of my cute friends from high school who I don’t get see very often, in fact, it’s been a few years! It was so fun to meet up with her and catch up a bit, while taking pics of her handsome little guy and her […]
