Taelynn's photo shoot

I am soooo proud of myself! On Saturday I took Taelynn out to have her pictures taken of her in her new baptism dress. She is getting baptized this Saturday, so I wanted to take some pictures so that Chris could make a baptism announcement. We took her to the top of Alpine Loop and then to Thanksgiving point. I took 150 pictures!!! There were so many cute ones that I decided to make a video of the photos set to music. These were just a FEW of some of my favorites. I uploaded the video that I made to youtube and have the link below so you can go and view it. Enjoy! DISCLAIMER...I am NOT a professional photographer OR movie maker, so please don't be too harsh in the comments! I am very happy with how they turned out...not to bad for using my cute little pink Sony camera! (Plus it was FREE! Always a plus!!!) I really tried to think out of the box and be creative with the shots (Thanks Bekki for inspiring me!) Of course it always helps to have a beautiful subject matter!!! Tae was such a trooper and really didn't need to be coached, I guess she is a natural model (lucky her).

You can't really tell, but she was spinning in circles in this photo

Oh Jenny! These are GORGEOUS, FABULOUS, priceless, SO sweet, and INCREDIBLE! Did I mention GORGEOUS?! You did SUCH a great job!I love the twirling one, some in the flowers, the one with her walking down the path, her cute toes...oh man, I can see why you had a hard time picking a favorite!

It would be so neat if she had her bridals done in some of the same places/shots one day...kind of a then, and now. She is so darling. Congratulations! I can't believe she is 8!!! Happy happy Birthday to Taelynn! Thanks for sharing your pics! I am sure the video is excellent...I am going to go peek...can't wait to see pictures from her special day!

I think you did an amazing job! It was hard to pick a fave but I love the one of her in the tall grass, sitting and in the flowers looking up. The dress is so pretty, BTW.

Hey Jenny!!
Your kids are so grown up! I can't believe it! The pictures you took of Tae are absolutely adorable.. Great job!
I am so glad you found my blog! The bride in the pictures is my friend Renae, who is my missionary/boyfriend's older sister. Since he's been gone, she and I have become really close, which is really fun. I was so flattered when she asked me to be a bridesmaid! He comes home in about 2 1/2 months, so I can hardly wait!
Well let's do keep in touch!
