On-location in Idaho doesn’t sound that exciting, right? But really, it’s fantastic! So many places to choose from.
I took my yearly trip up to Idaho to visit my sister. Her family has a “Giant Garden” named Ashland Produce. Her husband farms and then sells the produce to the local grocery stores and every year they grow a very large pumpkin patch. My kids love to go out there and pick the perfect pumpkin to take home. It’s a 4 hour trip to get there but so worth the perfect pumpkins and other delicious produce we get to take home. Not to mention, I get to see my sister!
I always make the best of my trip and take pictures while I’m there. Sometimes it’s her kids’ senior pictures sometimes it’s family pictures but always we get great pictures in the pumpkin patch too.
Now, without further adieu, here’s talented and beautiful Hailey!
What is your worth in the eyes of the One?
I was able to participate in an activity for a Young Women group in my area. They got their hair and make up done, brought their prom dresses and dresses from siblings and friends to wear, and then we had fun taking pictures. I was able to go to girl’s camp with these girls and the love you feel for somebody you serve, is the most humbling kind of love you will feel. I can honestly say that I love these girls.
It was so fun to be with these kids. The love that they have for each other is obvious and so sweet.
And how cool is this location? A super old fence with blue mountains and yellow prairie grass in the background. Even sometimes those mountains look purple. Just depends on the day.
We all love it when there’s a gentlemen around, right ladies? Meet Peter. Woodworker, “Who” fan, gentleman.
A whole family of blondes and all girls too! Such cuties!
The sunflowers only come out once a year, and for only one month. We found a good patch of them on a road less traveled. I imagine it may have been a busy road up until the main roads went in. I’d bet those old roads have a sweet story.
Oh! Sweet Mandy. You know that birth story I posted below? She is that same sweet baby. 9 days old and sooooo dislikes being wrapped up. It’s always amazes me that they can have so much personality even when they are still so newly created.
Have you ever been in the room when somebody, or yourself, is having a baby? The miracle-ness of the whole thing is palpable and you just can’t help but cry.
This birth story is about my sister. She’s a beach body coach and worked out until she was 41 weeks pregnant when they finally induced her. Being induced was a bit different for her. This was her 3rd labor and she had gone into labor on her own with the other 2. She was an amazing laborer and smiled even though those tough contractions.
For past couple of years I’ve been asked to take pictures at Legacy Dance. A dance studio in Orem. They put on Beauty and the Beast this year in January, as well as an amazing night of dance performances in May. These are some super talented kids that drive to Orem from all over Utah County. You can find their website here, and their facebook page, with the most up to date information about performances here.
