Baby lotion longings...

Have you ever just missed the smell of baby lotion when your baby has gotten too old for it? I do often; especially when I do an infant shoot I am reminded of how sweet and magical that smell is.

It conjures up wonderful memories of my babies and the days when their needs were so simple and having them in my arms and starting at every detail of their faces, hands and toes was a daily ritual.

Miss Molly made all of these memories flood back thank you sweet baby girl...

Oregon Coast....

Our trip to Oregon this Summer was special. My kids came home to Az saying "I love the Beach in Oregon". The have decided that we need to move there. That is not happening but I think a trip back is definetly in the works. My oldest learned how to surf and my younger ones loved the water and the sand.

We made sandcastles, climbed a huge sand hill, found crabs and touched sea anenomes. It was magical.

Part of our trip to Oregon was shooting my cousin Chrissy's Wedding on the beautiful Willamette River. They were married on the Wilammete Queen a historical sternwheeler. The setting was perfect and the weather even more perfect. I will share some pics soon.

Another purpose for our trip was to shoot my cousin Mike's engagement pictures in Pacific City. It was nothing short of BEAUTIFUl! We spent the day there with our family and then my Dad and I met up with Mike and Lindy to do their pictures. It was such a fun shoot and Mike and Lindy were up for anything. My Dad is so great to work with it was our first time working together and we had a good time.

Oregon Coast goodness that is my new saying for our trip... It was a great getaway. More pics to come.
