I like #17 picking wildflowers. When I look at it, I think about the times when I thought there were no cares in the world. The word that comes to mind when I look at that picture is "bliss." It calms me down and says that everything's ok.

Jolyn Laney said...

I'm definitely a fan already of your photography and put a post on my Facebook wall telling people about it. :)
One more entry!
I'm going to give it to my friend who just had her baby last night. They would love a photo session with their new baby girl! :)

Rad Rachel said...

I just found your blog and I love your work! Covered Bridge Family Sillouette is probably my favorite.

Marie and Jesse said...

#17 for three reasons. I like the lighting of the picture, how unposed the girl appears, and how innocent the image is. I think we all need to take more time to smell the roses in our lives.
I'll post a link to your website on both my Facebook account and my blog for bonus points. :)

Anna said...

I love #3-Covered Bridge Family Sillouette. I love how is shows the love between husband and wife and the love they have for their daughter. This entry is for Marie James! Good luck Marie! I can't wait to see beautiful pictures of Rosalee and Zeke!

L J Perotto said...

My fav is sleeping mae. Not only is it a great pic, but it shows the beauty of a child, the comfort, the security of family and the joy of being together

Strong Family said...

I'd have to say #18 of the field. I love where the picture was taken. Your photography is great.

Strong Family said...

I'd have to say #18 of the couple in the field. I love where this pic was taken. Great work.

Liji and Christina Waite said...

My favorite is #4, Happy Newborn. I think that she is having happy dreams about her life in the pre-existence and being with her Heavenly Father. So Perfect.

Liji and Christina Waite said...

1.I put a link to your blog in a post on my blog.
2. I added you to my link list

julie said...

Um so I really, which one did I like? Oh I remember. It was um the happy newborn. Yeah. Number 4. Um I just really like it because she is just so happy and I love her smile! She has the cutest smile! I love the white blanket or sheet or cushion that she was laying on. I just love little kids. They're so cute.

The Nichols said...

I'm going to say Behind Bars because it made me laugh. It was hard to choose because I loved a lot of them- especially the little babies. Also when I saw the title Awaiting the Arrival I said, "So that's why they are by the train tracks!" I did'nt get it before.

Mrs. Dexter said...

I choose #3 - Covered Bridge Family Silhouette.
The shot looks so elegant and so strategically "un-posed". ;)
Also, with it being black and white, it could be matted or hung on any wall of any color. Classic.

*I'm going to post the contest on my Facebook. Can I have another vote?*

Jack and Erika said...

We love #4, but I think we're a little partial to her! ;}

JK said...

I have to pick a favorite?!
I love "All Smiles." It is just a simple, sweet picture of that little family. It just emanates happiness.
I have to say though, "Pouting Toddler" is a close second. Reminds me of my life with 3 girls under 3! :)
Thanks for the chance to win! I'd love some pictures of the above mention 3.

Moffatzoo said...

I like #2 awaiting arrival. I think it is great putting an expecting couple on train tracks. I love pictures that are out of the norm. That is why my close second is #11 with the pouting toddler. I have also posted a link on my facebook page and on my blog at moffatfamilyzoo.blogspot.com. Thanks.

Jared, Christine, & Lucas said...

I like #11. It's just so true to life and a wonderful job catching the moment. Love your pictures!

Are you smarter than a fifth grader said...

I say the One behind the Bars,but there was a lot of good ones.

Jack and Erika said...

You're on my bloglist, I made a post about you, and I'm already a facebook fan, but I posted the link in my status :] Woot woot!

Christy said...

"Happy Newborn" is my absolute favorite! So rare to catch a newborn smile!

Mrs. Dexter said...

My second vote has to be for my girl, Little Miss L.V. Max. (#4 - Happy Newborn) I could not BELIEVE you caught that rare moment of her SMILING when she was only what? A week old, give or take? That showcases the precious moments you can capture with a good eye and a quick hand. Awesome photo.

Nathan & Katelyn said...

I like #17 most, Picking Wildflowers. It reminds me of when I was younger and enjoyed picking the pretty flowers around my house. It also depicts what little girls are all about. :)

Nathan & Katelyn said...

jeremyand jessicapotter said...

#11 it totally reminds me of my little girl when I try and take pictures.

Jeannette Carey said...

I think all the pictures are beautiful but I think PERFECTION said it all...

The Miche's said...

I love #20 it is just so precious! I love your other pictures as well you guys do amazing work!

Karen said...

20. Perfection It is adorable to see the baby in the hand of their parent for them to look back at and remember how tiny he was.

daisydoo said...

The Kradolfers said...

I really like number 5 "all smiles" A simple family photo, but the colors all work so well together. But there were a lot of really beautiful photos to choose from! If i win, my email is tanzenbren at gmail

rochelle said...

I love #20 PERFECTION he looks so precious sleeping there like a little angel.

Erin Wood Photography said...

I really enjoy the photo covered bridge silhouette. As an artist and photographer as well I am drawn to this photo. The composition is gorgeous, the contrasting light is outstanding and I find using their silhouettes unique. Keep up the great work!

Judd Sarah and Jackson said...

I like #17 Picking wild flowers. I like the lighting the way her dress is, everything!

Daniel and Ashley said...

My vote is for #4 because a moment like that can be hard to capture! I am expecting a little one in November so to see that little girl and her precious smile makes me more and more excited!
I just want to say, your photography is really great! Very very talented!
Ashley T.

Cynthia said...

I love #6. I am a sucker for infant pictures, and I love how this little one's personality is so visible in the photo.

I am expecting in Nov and would love to have some sibling pics done when the baby comes.

Hernan said...

Covered Bridge Family Sillouette is my fave

Hernan said...

Covered Bridge Family Silhouette is my favorite

Steven Clark said...

If I had to pick one, it would be #8. It is very clear, and I like the pictures where it appears you are gazing in through something. It give a feel of being observant of the little things. I really like Picture #1 though. Because it is a picture of a girl just being a girl. I think a picture with the "peering through something / gazing in" effect at someone (or some people) just being normal, not focused on the camera, would be a great combo!

Julia and Jeff said...

My favorite is #8 Cutest Girl Alive. She really is a cute girl. She is just so sweet and it is just a darling picture.

I also became a fan on facebook and added a status. At lease I am trying to but facebook is being weird.

Your Photography is great!

bc2003hd said...

I Love # 20, Perfection is perfect....

mamadukes51761 said...

I like # 20. Its so neat to see that baby in his daddys hand

mamadukes51761 said...

I am loving # 20. I wish I had that type of photo with my babies.

mamadukes51761 said...

# 20 is so pretty. I wish I had photo's of my children like that

jan said...

Your pictures are beautiful, but # 20 is my grandbaby and he is so precious. I would love to see them win a photo package

Jacob and Nicole said...

#20-- I have a beautiful daughter who is almost 10 months, and it reminded me of how precious and tiny she used to be.

The Lusks said...

I love Bowl Baby! So cute! Memories of a newly born baby are some of the most precious.

The Denney's said...

#4 Happy Newborn is my favorite. There's always something very special about a new baby and to catch a smile that big on camera being so new is priceless.

The Denney's said...

Another entry for posting a comment on my wall on facebook about it!

Steve and Leigh Ann said...

They are all just awesome photos. My first choice is #11 Pouting Toddler. It reminds me of my cute grand-daughter with her pony-tails and pouting and going to her room and sitting on her rug for time out. But I also like the Perfection picture too. I'm confused about how to do the other entries but I'll try.

Steve and Leigh Ann said...

..Oh if I win, I'm giving my session to my daughter who lives in Rexburg because she has a new baby and I'd love for them to have a family photo taken by you. Your work is beautiful.

Steve and Leigh Ann said...

I posted an entry in facebook and in my blog which is: wwwsteveandleighann.blogspot.com

Laynie said...

Favorite pic is the pouting toddler...so cute. It's like the typical photo session for my family..someone is always throwing a fit ;)

Stacey said...

ok OBVIOUSLY, cutest girl alive! :)

Tyler & Aly Carey said...

All your pictures are amazing, but #20 takes the gold, there is no better word to describe that picture than Perfection! truly perfect!!!

Hil & Collin said...

I love #2! It is so cute and sweet and it makes me want to have my own baby!

Steph and Ty said...

Picture #4 makes me smile. I love how you captured that sweet and priceless expression. She is beautiful. I think she was thinking of heaven when you placed her in the soft, white fluffy blanket. Perfect!

Norgerocks said...

i love picture # 15. to me it shows hope and that there is light in the end of the tunnel. It hit me really hard because a friend of mine is dying of cancer at age 18 right now and she feels like her life is over. This picture brings some light into my life and i feel like no matter how bad things are there is always the light to guide you.

Christine said...

I love the way you did the colors in #2: Awaiting the Arrival - very nice!

The Stoker's said...

Ooh, I like a lot of the photos but I'm going to have to go with #4 Happy Newborn. I have a little girl and they are the most precious things especially when they smile. And they are so cute when they're cuddled on a soft blanket. Love it!
