{R&J Wedding} sneak peek

{Life Update}

I know I have been really bad lately about keeping you up on what is going on in Greg and I's life. SO, here is a quick little update...

Alicia and Karis came to hang with Greg and I, and I had fun putting Karis in my hat and scarf for an evening walk that we took
BTW: I JUST found out Karis is going to have a little brother this May! :)

We had a great time at Greg's company Christmas party with Chris and Carlee:
The party was at the Seattle Aquarium, which was a really fun setting for the party!
I finished David and Kiesha's engagement shoot, and have to share another favorite that emerged after finishing editing:
We spend Thanksgiving down in McMinnville with my fam and had a blast. The day after Mom, Dad, Greg and I went to the Air and Space Museum and had a lot of fun:
The Spruce Goose is at the museum, and is larger than life in size!

Thanksgiving dinner at Grandma and Grandpa Young's was delish!
Karis and Papa playing piano as the pre-dinner entertainment:
LOVE this look:
A while ago, when I was in Spokane I got to meet baby Drew. Isn't she just yummy?!?!
Levi turned a whopping 3!!! Wow, he is growing up so fast!
Our Red-ster. Just being cute while we decorated our condo with Christmas decor:
Red LOVES the fireplace... anytime it is on, he is lying in front of it:

We both just love him...hope you enjoyed our little update! :)
Merry Christmas! 
We pray blessings on you and your family this Christmas and New Years!
Love, Greg, Kara & Red

{David & Kiesha} Engaged!!!

Okay, let me introduce you to David and Kiesha.
Before I even met these two I was seriously stoked to do their engagement shoot! I got an email from David listing a few places that they would like to go. Pike. Kerry Park. SPU. UW. I knew that we were about to have some fun! :) So get ready for one of the longest "Sneak Peeks" I have done. I had a VERY hard time narrowing it down to just these few favorites...

What is crazy is that they were engaged only a few days before our shoot! David had planned out a beautifully crafted and romantic proposal, as well as making sure that they got the shoot in before they both had to head back to Texas! Kiesha is amazing! She has planned almost their entire wedding in one week that will be taking place in only a few short months! Nice work, girl!
David & Kiesha - thank you, thank you, thank you for the awesome opportunity to get to know you guys and your amazing love story! Your love for life, each other and the Lord shine though so beautifully! I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!
Oh, and how could I forget to thank my wonderful partner in crime, Lori-girl! Thank you so much for your super-assistant skills!! It would not have been the same with out you!

{Family Love}

I love this photo above of the Avery, Thomsen and Arnold Family! I think it sums this group up pretty darn well. :) They are all SO much fun!

And these kidos...crazy, sweet ones! This one cracks me up...everyone doing their own thing...

I love this one of Josh and Sadie...
These two at their best...
Levi is waiting for "Thomas the Train" to come down the tracks, and Greyson is eating rocks. :)
Seriously, such beautiful siblings!!!
So the whole purpose of this little shoot was to get pictures of the "whole fam" because brother Michael is going off into the Navy for 2 years! :(
I also got to snap a few of these two love birds...

Thanks everyone for a fun shoot! You guys are awesome!
Also, a special little thanks to Carlee for taking a few pics of Greg and I after, and Sadie, thank YOU so much too for your crazy networking skills. :) You are amazing!!!
