7 Days New - Des Moines Lifestyle Newborn Photography

Do you recognize this family?  
I've photographed them a couple of times over the past year (HERE and HERE).
Chris is in medical school with my husband, so I spend a lot of time with Katie and her girls.  
They have become our medical school family here in Iowa.
August 25th they welcomed sweet baby Lindy Jo.  She is just as darling as her big sis
and is one loved and adored little sweetheart.

Check out their lifestyle newborn session.
Katie is an interior designer (check out her website HERE) and has the most darling house.
Someday when I don't live on a medical school budget, she will design and decorate my whole house! :)
Thanks again Hogues!

Summer in Sandpoint - Personal Post Part 3

Finally, the last post from our Summer 2014 travels.
Truthfully, I wrote this post first about a month ago... but my OCD made me post in chronological order.

To see the other posts from our summer, check these out:

This summer my husband and I were able to take some time to head back West and see our families.  We spent a couple weeks in Idaho with my in-laws that were wonderfully relaxing and stress free, then we came back to Iowa and moved into our new place, then headed to Alberta to spend time with my folks (yes - it was a busy month and a half for us!).  We spent the first week in Calgary and then spent the second week in Sandpoint, Idaho where we have vacationed every summer since I was little.

Let me start this post off by saying I am in no ways an iMovie pro! I've literally made 2 movies in my entire life and this is the first one I've ever shared.

I'm SO happy I put this video together of our trip... because just a couple weeks later, our wonderful boat was stolen, so this was our last summer cruising around in this boat.  We've had some fun memories with it, but things are things, so there will be more memories made in the future with whichever boat we get to replace this!

We spent every day on the water from morning until sunset. Our last night in Sandpoint, we wake surfed well after the sun had gone down and pulled out a spotlight so we could still see the water. We had a blast tubing. My little brother was accident prone - from skateboarding wipeouts leaving his shoulder and hip scraped up, tubing wipeouts that split his nose open, and then slicing his fingers on the blade of the wake surf - I'm shocked we didn't take him to the hospital.

All in all, it was a fun week with family on a gorgeous lake.

And now for just a few pictures from our trip...
