Our family with my Husband’s Parents & Brother in San Antonio at the River Walk.

{Thank you John for taking this one so I could be in it.}

My two darling daughters on our oldest’s 16th Birthday.

Daughter’s & Friends again on our oldest’s 16th Birthday.

Taken for our Daughter’s 8th Birthday.

I love the rushing water in this photo of our Son enjoying the beach in Puerto Rico.

Here’s the fam {except for me} in Iowa on our summer Family History tour of Forest City Iowa.  Bald Knob State Park

I did this photo to put on the cover of our Daughter’s Baptism Program.

Here she is right after she was baptized. Sigh…what a special moment for our family.

Another special day…taking our Son to the Temple for the first time.  Doesn’t he look handsome in his suit? 🙂

A snowy day.  I love the emotion captured in this photo.

Our little photographic princess.

Holy Cow that was difficult choosing from thousands of photos I took last year!  Time to warm up the printer and print these babies!

Photography brings JOY,


  1. Beautiful family Shan! I love the pics with the frame. I’m going to have to remember to try that one!

  2. Nice shots! My favorites are 4 and 5, but the frame shots are very creative, too!

  4. Very cool that you went on a history tour for vacation. I have often thought I wanted to do the same thing with my children when they are old enough.

    Thanks for sharing your family with us.

    • Amber, so happy you stopped by! We had a wonderful time seeing where my ancestors grew up. My 3 greats Grandfather founded the city too!

  5. Love this idea, so fun to do a review in pics! Your son in the water and the girls in the frame are my favorites. 🙂 Although the first picture is awesome too, I love your smile in that one. Wish I was joining you at Blissdom in a few weeks. We will have to chat about meeting up, maybe on our drive to Florida?

    • Thank you, Ange. I would love to see your family do a review in photos. I wish you were joining me at Blissdom too! I would love to meet up somewhere on your drive to Florida. Would you be coming through OK?
