My cousin (the blond) and her friend came down for a visit and Senior Pictures last weekend. My family had a blast with them and their mothers. We stayed up 'til the wee hours of the morn talking and laughing. We went out to a fabulous lunch, they did all my laundry, kept my house clean and watched my kids while my hubby and I went to a Halloween party! It was such a treat. The girls are both beautiful and were so fun to photograph. I cannot believe how old my sweet cousin is. When she was a baby/toddler, I hauled her around everywhere and was her favorite. Then she grew up into this gorgeous young woman. Why are people always growing up on me? Goodness!

Anyway, we had a great time at some train tracks with a nearby warehouse we found on our way downtown.

Then we rushed downtown before we ran out of any remaining light

This little gal is an artist. So we had to have a shot with some of her buds.

Check out this dress! Little Miss Handy Dandy made it for one of her dances out of Duct Tape.
Here's some different up close shots for you to get a better gander at the pure awesomeness.
I love the lace-up back and the hot pink accents.

We went to the desert real quick the night before just as the sun was setting.


  1. is that melissa?? wow they are very beautiful girls and all i can say is holy cow with the duct tape dress, very cool!

    The dress is great. It reminds me of the dress made out of American Express cards years ago at the Oscars.
