So this shoot was special to me...my sister-in-law got engaged a few months back to a great guy and as a gift, I wanted to shoot some engagement photos for them.  We had so much fun, we went up to the family cabin, stomped around in the leaves, enjoyed the sun, pulled out the old truck and took some awesome photos.  Samantha, we couldn't be happier for you and Wes.  Seriously, you two are so perfect for one another.  We love you!

Fall Family Photos // Kirkland Family Photographer

Last weekend was great, the weather was amazing and to top it all off, I got to photograph this family.  I can't believe it had been eight, yes EIGHT, years since I have seen them.  Last time we were in the same room was back in 2005 when my husband and I got married.  Which is crazy to think it has been that long since Billy (the dad in these photos) and my husband used to be roommates in college.  Crazy!  Anyway, here they are and looking totally adorable.  So good to see you guys!

Mini Style: Nine Ways to Wear Chambray for Fall

I typically don't do any posts related to style, mainly because I work in a corporate office M-F and my typical attire is slacks and cardigans. However, my oldest has collected quite the fun fall wardrobe so we decided to do a little fashion show and style her new chambray shirt 9 different ways. We had tons and tons of outfits to choose from, but this is all we actually got on her, you know how little kids get after changing their clothes 9 times. So, there may be more of these in the future, maybe not. We'll see!

The chambray shirt is from Old Navy.


Ok so it might be 2 years late, but better late than never.  This is from the trip we took to Disneyland for my daughter's 4th birthday.  And I can say, my husband has been so incredibly busy with actual work which why this took a back seat for a while.  But I am so happy that it is finished!  1 down, 2 more to go?

iPhoneography // my life through my phone

We had an awesome summer.  I really do think it was my favorite summer yet.  If you follow along with me on Instagram (I'm @graymis), then all of these will be familiar.  But I love them all so much so I couldn't help but double share them.  I wasn't even able to get all of them on here, so I guess I'll share more another day.
