Viva Las Vegas

a couple weeks ago we took our first trip AWAY from eleanor for two nights & joined the longs in Vegas for Danielle's 28th birthday.
it was definitely hard to leave Eleanor but i knew she was in good hands between my parents & blake's parents.
what an AMAZING time we had with the Longs.
the boys certainly took us by surprise more than once.
we had a limo waiting for us at the airport where we met the boys.
we then headed to our room at the Palazzo (the new tower at the Venetian).
of course our regular room that we thought we had was actually a 2,000 square foot suite on the 45th floor overlooking the strip.
it even had an eliptical in it.
we also enjoyed shopping, dinner at Olives at the Bellagio & front row seats to the Cirque De'Soleil show "Mystere".

the trip was such a blast...one i will never forget.
danielle, i hope you had as much fun i did.
parents- thanks for watching our sweet eleanor. i am so thanksful & glad she didn't go on another bottle strike while i was gone. i am also glad she likes to sleep longer at night for you both!
and boys- thanks for all your planning and fun surprises!

love you!

Thanks again Sheetal & Andrew for allowing me to be a part of Ananya's special day!

face paint rocks

i had the priveledge to photograph a FUN five year olds birthday party.
it was full of bounce houses, slushies, face painting and more.
the face painter was absolutely amazing...these took her between 3-5 minutes each.
check out some of these fun faces!



me, eleanor, lindsey, lyla & susu ventured to the arboretum last week to see all the pumpkins.
the weather was absolutely perfect.
here are some of my favorite pics from the day!

i put this dress over her onsie that she was wearing but as you can tell, she was not a fan.
still such a cute pie even when she cries.
