I have been fortunate enough to have had super fun sessions with a few members of this family, so having them all together and meeting more family was over the top! ūüėČ ¬†This was a Christmas gift from one couple to the rest of the family, and what a fabulous gift idea it was! ¬†Hagen Family, it was so great to meet all of you, and how exciting that you are still growing!

Chicago bound… or the many faces of Jack {fresno clovis portrait photographer}

April 15, 2011

Sunny, warm days in the middle of January. ¬†Day trips to Yosemite. ¬†Camping in the mountains and near the beach. ¬†Our amazing church. ¬†Our sweet small group. ¬†Dear friends. ¬†These are just some of the things we will miss as we make a move from the Central Valley to Chicago in just a little over a month. ¬†From sunny Cali to windy Chicago. ¬†However, the thing that we will love so very much is that we will be living closer to family. ¬†For years, there have been over 2000 miles between us. ¬†Apart for holidays. ¬†Apart while dealing with horrible illness. ¬†Apart for t-ball games and talent shows. ¬†But now… now we will be able to celebrate cousin’s birthdays together. ¬†Take day trips to play with Grandpas and Grandma. ¬†Enjoy turkey on Thanksgiving with sisters and brothers. ¬†Build even more amazing memories.

So this is the last birthday we will celebrate in our California house. ¬†Lots of memories here. ¬†This guy was not even walking yet when we first moved in. ¬†He’s a big 5 year old now ;-).

We had a pizza party for some of his preschool classmates. ¬†It started out as a cooking party, you know, because he wants to be a chef (or he did when he was 4… ¬†lately he says he wants to drive airplanes when he grows up…), but focusing more on the pizza theme was just way too much fun. ¬†We decorated cupcakes, made our own pizzas, and ate them all up. ¬†Happy birthday, joyful, expressive little man!!

Oh my goodness. ¬†What an honor to have placed in the I Heart Faces contest this week! ¬†There were so many beautiful entries! ¬†I loved my image… but I’m a little biased of that sweet little boy ;-). ¬†If you didn’t get to see it, it is here on my slices of life post. ¬†If you haven’t checked out I Heart Faces, then get over there! ¬†SO many awesome photography tips and ideas… it is such an inspiring site!! ¬†Thank you, Amy and Angie! ¬†And thank you, Carissa Gallo, for being the guest judge!! ¬†Congratulations to all the winners — the entries were so amazing… gorgeous. ¬†Lifestyle photography is too fun ;-).

Speaking of lifestyle photography, I spent the weekend taking lots of photos of my kids — everyday kind of stuff. ¬†Here are just a few pieces of our weekend… Obviously the highlight was that my daughter got her cast taken off her arm! ¬†Yahoo!! ¬†And apparently our oldest son wasn’t around very much because he is not in many of the images… poor middle kid… ūüôĀ
