{H} Boys.

From the second these little boys hopped out of their car they had my heart.
Which is kind of fitting since their last name is Hart.
Their little outfits were so J. Crew and they had magazine-worthy hair.
They could not have been any cuter. 
Here is one brave, brave Mama holding a Praying Mantis to keep her little boy's attention.  I was beyond impressed.  I don't do so well in the bug arena.  In fact, I was kind of having heart palpitations watching that mantis crawl up and down her arm!  But Amy just replied, "I'm the mom of 4 boys.  That's how I roll!"  Love it.
Those adorable Hart boys are sure going to break some hearts some day!
Get it?  Hart/heart. 
I know...CHEESY, but true!

{R} Family.

Yet again another model beautiful family!
Feast your eyes on the Ruuds.

And I tried my hand a few new locations and love, love, loved them.
Did I mention that I loved the locations?
Because I did.

Thank you kindly, Ruud Family!

{M} Family.

Carolyn and Matt are two of my favorite people on the planet!

We have known each other for years and years.  Chris and I went to good old Granger High with these two gems.  Carolyn and I were Songleaders (sort of like cheerleaders) together and Chris and Matt played sports together starting way back in Junior High.  We've been friends for 20 years or so.  Like I said, we've known each other forever!

As newlyweds, we had apartments in the same complex.  Those were some good times!  We've vacationed together, double-dated and shared more laughs then I can count.  (Mainly because Matt is one of the funniest people you will ever meet.  Ever.)  We are so lucky to call them friends.
Now, we live on opposite ends of the country.  Us in Utah, them in New York.  Carolyn and I keep in touch via blogs and such, but it's a real treat when we get to see each other in person.  Which we got to do just last month!  It was so, so wonderful to see our sweet friends...and even better when it was business as usual.  All laughs and all good times.  We picked up like we hadn't skipped a beat.  I love that about true friendship.

Carolyn asked me to take some pictures of her fam (and entire extended family) while they were here in UT.  It's been years since the whole clan was together.  Coming from a fellow photographer (you can check out the fabulous Carolyn out here), I was honored to be considered.
Thank you, Matt and Carolyn (and the entire Cooper family). It was so great to see you.  We miss you and love your guts!

Stoddard Family.

Sometimes there is no other way to describe people other than beautiful.
These are beautiful people!
Beautiful and kind.  And tall...which I love.
Oh, and don't forget adorable.  Those two kids just couldn't be any cuter!
That makes for a pretty great package in my book.
Thank you, Stoddard Family.
It was a pleasure working with you.  You are just delightful!
