For the first time in over 9 years my whole family has been in the same place at the same time! With 3 siblings and their families living in Washington, another living with her husband in LA, and another living with his family in Flagstaff, visits are always staggered! This time it worked out that they were all able to be here at the same time! So of course we had to put together a Family picture day:)

My Brother in Law was the official photographer, but I just had to bring my camera along to get a few of my own! Thanks to one of my sister in law who was snapping with mine:)

All 13 of us along with our parents, who recently celebrated 43 years of marriage!

My lovely sisters and mother

and the boys and dad

Happy 43rd Anniversary to you two!

Such a fun afternoon, ending with all of us going to dinner and than visiting over at mom and dads:)It was a busy couple weeks of visiting, laughing, catching up and laughing some more!

I realized that I have never blogged about our new baby! She is now 3 months old and we are all just loving every minute of her as she grows way to fast!

This little girl stayed nice and cozy warm for a day extra:)I started having contractions around 9:30 am the day after my due date, by noon I started thinking that things were starting to happen, by 2:30 we were picking the kids up from school and dropping them off at my sisters house. We got to the hospital about 3:30, I was dilated to 6cm, and I was staying!

By about 4:45 I decided I needed the epidural and got that about 5ish, the Dr came in to check on my about 5:40ish and that is when everything got exciting! She checked me and I was dilated to 9cm, but she just felt a bulging sac of waters, due to me having hydroamnios(?)(lots of extra fluids). But as she was checking, my water broke and she felt FEET! She went from head down when we got there to a complete breech! But at that point it was to late and i was to far along to try turning her. the Dr was worried about feet or worse the cord coming first with all my gushing waters! So an immediate csection was ordered!

And Baby girl was born via c section at 6:05pm. weighing in at 9lbs 6oz! We loved every chunky little bit of her at first sight!

This is Ellie at about 3 weeks old in this picture. With recovering from a c section, I didn’t even attempt any kind of session with her until after 2 weeks old, I was too sore to even think of the workout of a session 😉 But all is good now and she is growing so fast, I wish I could freeze time and keep babies at about 2 weeks old for a while!

This session was done up in Cave Creek in the beautiful AZ desert!

Nothing says Arizona better than a cacti filled hillside:)

How much cuter can these kids be!

I just love this one! Doesn’t look like AZ at all! It reminds me so much of Rapid City!

Sweet sisters

and adorable brothers!

This time of year is the perfect time to get out for a Portrait Session, in this beautiful weather! If you want more info for your Cave Creek Photographer visit my webpage:)
