Cutesie Onesies! Oh My! | Mesa Baby Photographer

Recently I have been noticing a lot of custom made onesies on the Internet and decided to take a shot at making some.  What you are about to see are the results of my efforts and the SASSAFRAS-iness of one sweet little muffin who modeled the onesies for me.  Introducing little Miss P and all her sweetness modeling onesies custom made by Little Tree Company!

a sheriff, a firetruck, a horse and a little boy who is just too busy for pictures…

A couple of weekends ago my mother and two sisters came to visit my little family in Mesa.  One of my sisters brought her little family along.  While they were here we took a little trip to Goldfield Ghost Town. I had been there previously that same week with my kids and thought it would be fun to head there with my visiting family.  My sister was wanting to do a family photo session and I thought the ghost town was just the place.  We first stopped at a little white church and happened to catch a gunfight.  The kids got to meet Narley, the sheriff.  All of the kids were deputized and warned that they may arrest anyone but Narley.

My youngest nephew, as you are about to see, really had no interest in having his photo taken.  He is just way to busy checking out the world around him.

I believe the following pictures capture his exploring nature rather well…

My oldest nephew puts on a different show in front of the camera…he’s all smiles!

I captured some beautiful images of my sister and her husband…

My favorite images of the entire family were captured beside this old firetruck at the ghost town…

I ain’t afraid of no ghost…

I have been so into decorating and crafting this Halloween.  My children and I put together a real quick, cheap and easy Halloween craft last week using white muslin, styrofoam balls and wooden dowel rods.   The result was a spooky ghost family greeting our front door guest.  Here’s a quick tutorial of the process.

Materials for 4 ghosts:

1 yd of white muslin

4 styrofoam balls (Ours were around 4 inches)

Liquid starch and large bowl for soaking muslin

2 dowel rods

Black craft paint and paint brushes

Some sort of container to prop your ghost up in…I used a tin bucket used for planting…repurposed as a ghost planter.

Cut dowels to desired lengths.  Poke one end of each dowel into a styrofoam ball.  Place dowel into container.

Cut muslin into 4 square sections…long enough to drape and hang down and cover all if not most of the dowel.

Soak muslin in liquid starch.  Wring out and drape over styrofoam ball.  Allow to dry completely.

Once starch is dry paint a face on each ghost with black craft paint.

Place container at front door as a greeting for your Halloween guest!

…cutest costume contest…

Halloween is just around the corner…and that means it is time for decorations, costumes and candy!

I remember when my children were little.  I had their costumes planned out months in advance and I made each of them  until they were about 5 years old.  My kids have been bubble bees, pumpkins, scare crows, and sponge bob, just to name a few.  And I have everyone of them captured on film.  Those photos make me smile and laugh every time I look at them.

I want to give you the opportunity to keep those same memories alive and participate in a contest as well.  Teresa Hill Photography is sponsoring a contest: The Cutest Costume Contest for children ages 0-8.  Each entry to the contest will be judged by your families and friends via facebook.  The winning entry receives a free family photo session.  Contact me via email, comment, or text message for more details and to schedule your session.  Space is limited so act fast to secure your spot.

…the person who you cannot live without…

“You don’t marry someone you can live with, you marry the person who you cannot live without.” ~Anonymous

I had the opportunity to assist Millie Southworth of Amelia Kate Photography with a wedding recently.

The afternoon was brilliant with the bright Arizona sun, but nothing compared to the bright and happy smiles that radiated from Ashley and Kody’s faces as they stepped out of the doors of the Mesa, Arizona LDS Temple as husband and wife.  Their families greeted them with joyful cheers as they gathered on the temple steps for a group photo.

Later that evening the happy couple gathered with family and friends to celebrate their new lives together.  The DJ was a delightful part of the evening.  Just prior to the first dance he asked Kody to kiss Ashley the way he wants to be kissed every day.  Later the DJ asked Ashley to do the same.  Both kisses, like their first dance, were beautiful and full of tenderness.

The DJ kept the dance floor rocking all through the evening.  Some of my favorite moments from the evening took place on the dance floor.  Here are a just a few:  The bride with her father, the groom with his mother, and one of Ashley and Kody showing everyone how to be rock stars!

Lasting Impressions did a fantastic job with the wedding decorations. If you are interested in contacting Marlene of Lasting Impressions send me an email and I will send you her contact information.

A huge congratulations to Ashley and Kody and a BIG Thanks to Millie for taking me on as an assistant photographer for their special day!
