Brady is growing up!

This past Monday I spent some time shooting Mr. Brady. Isn't he the cutest midget you've ever seen in your life??? He was such a good boy and full of energy & curiosity. It was also a new learning experience for me, as I've never shot a toddler who can run around. I had to be super quick! A big thank you again to Shelly & Adam for letting me practice on their little guy. Prepare yourself for ultimate cuteness...

pet. You're naughty.

Zane, you are now the proud owner of the Swinger's Motel keychain by Eldorado Club!!

And the first place prize goes to Michelle for this caption:

"You used to like my scalp massages!"

Are you guys feeling creative this week? Please send me your best photo captions for this picture! I will accept entries until 5pm on Friday, May 25th. After that I will choose the most clever submission and a runner up. The first place winner shall receive The Good Book:

Ahhh, the Good Book. Good for all of us pious individuals. So good, in fact, you'll open it up time and time again. So easy to find your God with this book. Perfect for church!

Girls Rock

This week's cool find is Rock & Roll Camp for Girls. This camp is Portland based and founded by a non-profit org. Their mission is to "...encourage, engage and showcase the musical, artistic and individual talents of girls and young women ages 8-18, and to empower them with tools for self-reliance as a means to enhance and affirm positive self-esteem".

There are a lot of things to like about this. For one, they're teaching young girls to develop their skills - unlike so many influences that put emphasis on being pretty and thin at an early age. And I like listening to a bunch of crazy little girls on a sugar high confidently sing off-key. Reminds me a little bit of me as a kid :-)

Crazy Cake

Have you ever seen such a cake? It was neat looking AND delish. I took these pics at my future sister-in-law's bridal shower today. The food was great and we didn't have to play any shower games :-) Thanks, Nicole!

A Very Vegas Wedding

Mr. Evil and I just returned from a fantastic wedding in Las Vegas. Our good friends, Jasun & Christina, got hitched at the Tropicana Chapel. They were married by a singing Elvis and it was one of the best weddings I've ever attended!! We had a great time and I was able to get a lot of shots after the ceremony. The clouds suddenly moved in and covered the direct sun for about 30 minutes. We had great light and I was so happy! I know, I know, it doesn't take much.

Jasun and Christina, we wish you two all the best. You guys are perfect for eachother and I hope you have lots of fat babies :-) Thank you so much for letting me take all of those photos on your special day. I loved it! We're looking forward to seeing you soon. Here are some of the shots...
