A Mario Kart Halloween

Halloween Costumes- Mario Kart

There is nothing that can quite compare to the fun that cousins can have together.  We did this fun Mario Kart Halloween session last Friday before the kids got to do some fun trick-or-treating.  These are some memories that my family will obviously never forget! We have had so much fun doing things together since my brother and his family moved close by, and this Mario Party was no exception.  I hope you enjoy some Mario-sized Cuteness, including Mario, Princess Peach, Toad, Princess Daisy and Luigi!

Summer Time Smiles

These sweet kids and their fun parents were such a joy to photograph this past weekend- their sweet smiles and willing attitudes had me smiling their whole session.  I hope you enjoy this fun summer session!

First Birthday Blessings

billings birthday photography


I cannot believe how fast this first year has gone! B.M.W., from the very beginning you have been on your own timetable.  You were such a stinker at both of your ultrasounds, not wanting us to know for sure if you were actually a girl or not.  And I know that you were super comfortable in mommy’s belly, but you sure took your sweet time deciding it was time to enter this world.. At 7 days past your due date, you finally decided it was time.  On May 22, 2013 at 2:50 in the morning, we received our very first BMW.   You were so perfect- all 7 pounds, 13 ounces and 20 inches of you.  I had to quickly make sure you were actually a girl, but then I held you and tears of joy filled my eyes.  I love you, my daughter, and always will.  Your toothy grin and silly antics make me smile every day.  Happy 1st Birthday, sweet girl!
